Traxxas Shows Off New Products at RCX Chicago

Aug 07, 2011 6 Comments by

Industry giant, Traxxas, unveiled two brand new products this saturday at RCX Chicago for all to see. First item being a 25c 7600mah 2-cell LiPo battery. Compared to a standard 4200+mah NiMh pack, you’ll not only get a huge increase in run time but performance as well. Notice the lack of a hardcase surrounding the battery pack? Traxxas did this for two reasons; being able to squeeze every little bit of capacity out of the pack while still being able to fit into the standard battery tray and the second is having the ability to gauge whether the pack is starting to swell or not for safety reasons.

 

The second hot item to be released is a brand new addition to Monster Jam edition with Captain’s Curse. The attention to detail is second to none when is comes to the body design and attention to detail in the graphics. Check your local hobby shop for release dates on this killer looking truck.

About the author

I've raced just about every type of RC car, traveled the world shooting RC races, but at the end of the day though, you'll most likely find me behind the wheel of a 1/8-scale nitro buggy at my local track. I'm a Southern California native, which on any given day allows me the opportunity to race on just about any surface or facility of my choosing. Before I was heavily into RC most of my attention was focused towards photography. Since, all of the experience that I've gained and learned has been projected towards RC photography. I'm fueled by the idea of creating something new every time I head to take pictures. Whether it's portraits, racing action, or a track panoramas.

    Great Marketing. But almost 300.00 bucks for a brushed 2×4 with an AM radio… Wowza people must really want those cheap thin licensed bodies from Traxxas. Love the Soft Packs Lipos that way when the VXL shorts out you can watch your battery puff up. More Awesome Innovative products form Traxxas. Keep up the Work
