Duratrax’s New Brushless Buggy

Duratrax’s New Brushless Buggy

This budget minded buggy is RTR with Onyx electronics and is a great option for those looking to join the 1/8 electric buggy class. Here are all the details in the press release from Duratrax:

An edge in racing is always a good thing, and this buggy delivers one factory-installed and ready for action: a power system consisting of an Onyx 2200kV brushless outrunner motor and a waterproof, 120A Onyx ESC. It’s a combo that’s already proven itself a winner — and now it’s the anchor for the outstanding package of competitive features in the 835E. Many are drawn straight from the nitro 835B, including a waterproofed receiver box, grey-anodized aluminum and hardened steel parts, threaded Big Bore aluminum oil shocks and more.

Other highlights include a 2.4GHz radio system for dependability even at extreme distances, as well as extras such as front and rear sway bars, droop screws and hex-head hardware.

Price makes it an easy and affordable choice for up-and-coming competitors, especially since it includes the protection of the exclusive 1-Year Stress-Tech Free Parts Replacement Guarantee. 835E owners who break a covered part in the first year need only mail it to Duratrax to have it replaced absolutely free.
