Dynamite Prophet Sport Duo LiPo/NiMH Charger

Dynamite’s Prophet Sport Duo cuts down time with dual-charging capability and is packing plenty of juice (100 watts total, 50 per channel) to charge 1-6S LiPo packs, but what we really like is its small size and easy setup.

Traxxas “Brushless Edition” E-Revo, E-Maxx Now Waterproof With New MXL-6s Speed Control

Between the venerable E-Maxx, with its original monster truck appeal and off-road performance that reshaped the genre with its release, and its futuristic cantilevered (and fellow RC Car Action Readers’ Choice Award-winning) cousin E-Revo, Traxxas has commanded both the electric monster truck category and many backyard tracks across the country.
