Regular readers will recall our LaTrax Teton review from the May issue, where we enjoyed the truck in out-of-the box trim. Now LaTrax is rolling out upgrades for the little rig to increase performance and cool-factor. Visit the page for the new gear in our Hot News and New Stuff forum for the full lowdown; otherwise, here’s a quick look at the loot. Click the pics to enlargify…
This is officially the first time a washer has been exciting. These anodized aluminum dress-up parts give a the Teton wheels an nice bit of authentic hub detailing. Big versions for 1/10 scale, please!
Four colors, ‘cuz ya gotta have choices.
Aluminum shocks, always a winner. These are based on Traxxas’ GTR design, and they’re loaded–PTFE bores, hard-anodized threaded bodies, vented spring perches…the works!
Installed. Note the bleed hole in the cap.
Snazzy blue-anodized driveshafts. The stock plastic shafts are fine, but these are stiffer. And blue, hello. Hopefully these shafts mean a brushless Power-Up for the Teton is coming.
And here they are installed. Nice.
