LaTrax Announces Hop-Ups for Teton

Apr 14, 2014 No Comments by

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…

Machined-Aluminum-Blue-Wheel-Nut-Washer-Installed

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!

Machined-Aluminum-Blue-Wheel-Nut-Washers

Four colors, ‘cuz ya gotta have choices.

 

LaTrax-Aluminum-Shocks

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!

LaTrax-Aluminum-Shocks-Installed

Installed. Note the bleed hole in the cap.

 

Aluminum-Front-&-Rear-Driveshaft-Assembly

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.
