We love Traxxas’ classic 1979 Bronco, and we’re equally smitten with their latest R/C Ford off-roader, based on the 2021 Bronco Wildtrak. The 1/10-scale 4×4 rides on the rugged TRX-4 chassis, with steel frame rails, aluminum shocks, floor pans, portal axles, a high/low transmission, and is powered by a high-torque brushed motor.
R/C car maker Traxxas now offers an officially-licensed miniature version of the C8 Chevy Corvette. The ultra-realistic model rides on a customized 4-Tec 3.0 chassis with a longer and wider chassis made specifically for the mid-engine Vette. While it looks exactly like the real car, this one has an all-wheel drivetrain.
RC car and truck maker Traxxas shows off a set of rugged all-terrain tracks that work like the ones on a tank. The deep treads can rip through thick mud and snow, and look super cool doing it. They work on all TRX-4 models equipped with Traxx. Between the truck, the tracks, and the treads, you’re looking at about $600.
Just like a real 4×4, if you’re going to take your R/C vehicle off-road, it needs proper tires. Traxxas is showing off their extreme new Sledgehammer tires. Designed for their badass Rustler 4×4 VXL, the oversize tires increase ground clearance, and have an open-block pattern for traction and mud-clearing on the most rugged terrain.
While it’s not quite as awesome looking as the TRX-4 based Ford Bronco, the Sport version of Traxxas’ rugged off-roader still has amazing ground clearance, portal axles, and is ready to take on any terrain. Measures 21.9″ (l) x 9.8″ (w) x 9.5″ (h). It’s also available in kit form for $50 less.
