Traxxas XO-1 Hot Wheels Hypercar by Marcus White [Readers Ride]

Traxxas XO-1 Hot Wheels Hypercar by Marcus White [Readers Ride]

Traxxas “BackSlush” by Scott Oney [Reader’s Ride]

Scott Oney is a Traxxas fan, and hailing from Spirit Lake, ID he knows a bit about snow. He decided to combine the two into the ground-up build you see before you, which Scott has dubbed the BackSlush!

Axial Yeti XL: Tech Notes & Driving Impressions

The Axial Yeti was introduced only a few months ago and we were impressed with the new rock racer platform. Normally, when a completely new vehicle like the Yeti is released we don’t see another new release from the company for a while; but that’s not the case this time. Axial surprised all of us […]

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.
