From the February Issue: 2WD Brushless Stadium Truck Shootout

Dec 09, 2013 No Comments by

We had a blast comparing the Associated T4.2RS, Arrma Vorteks BLX, Durango DEST210, HPI E-Firestorm Flux, Racers Edge Traverse, and Traxxas Rustler VXL for our 2WD Brushless Stadium Truck Shootout. Ten pages of action and stats!

We tested top speeds, collected lap times with stock and Pro-Line tires, and got feedback from three drivers representing sport, intermediate, and advanced skills. There’s also a huge features chart so you can compare all the trucks’ equipment. Which machines come out on top as Most Fun, Most Race-Ready and Most Versatile? Pick up the February 2014 issue of RC Car Action to find out!

Each truck gets its own page so you can check out the chassis, transmitter, and power system. There are two more spreads like this to cover all six test trucks.

You want data? We got data. We tested each truck’s top speed on its included battery, a 2S LiPo, and a 3S LiPo. We also strapped in transponders and collected lap times on stock tires as well as Pro-Line tires with average and best laps for each truck and each driver. Of course, we also gathered subjective feedback from our test drivers.

This is just a taste–see the whole article in the February issue of RC Car Action!
