New Traxxas Steel Center Differential Announced

unnamed.jpg

Traxxas announced a new heavy-duty center differential for 1/10 scale 4X4 trucks. Like the Torque-Biasing Center Drive found in the X-Maxx and E-Revo, the heavy-duty center differential replaces the stock slipper clutch to absorb shocks and improve driveline durability in high-power applications. The center differential distributes power to all four wheels for extreme 3-cell LiPo acceleration and consistent, hard launches.

Retail price for the new assembly is $75.00, and will be in stock around early May. This upgrade will be a must-have item for anyone running the larger Sidewinder 8th brushless system, or even Traxxas’ own MXL-6S or VXL-6S combos. Pair this with Traxxas’ steel CVDs ($70/pair) and harden your drivetrain for the ultimate in durability!

Traxxas Announces Rustler 4x4 Models

Traxxas just announced the vehicle we've been waiting forever to see — the Rustler 4x4 VXL! This new four-wheel-drive Rustler features a new clip-less body system, much like the E-Revo 2.0 and the X-Maxx. It also has new extreme-duty driveshafts, an integrated wheelie bar, a clip-less battery hold-down, and new Talon 2.0 tires. The VXL version, like all of Traxxas' brushless models, do not come with battery or charger, allowing you to pick the perfect combination for you!

Our first delivery model is on the way soon, but if you want one of these bad boys, click that "Pre-Order" button and secure yours today! (Pre-orders are only for in-store pickup). The trucks are supposed to be arriving Mid-October.

The Rustler 4x4 will also be available as a brushed configuration with a NiMH battery and DC charger as well ($299.99).

Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 Announced, Due Later This Month

Traxxas' E-Revo has been in our Top Ten Products for the last three years running, so it's no surprise Traxxas is ready to make it even better. And they have. The new E-Revo isn't a complete redesign, but tiny improvements were made all over the truck to make it more durable, more sleek, and more bashable.

According to Traxxas, more than 90% of the truck received some kind of upgrade. The differentials were swapped out with X-Maxx-spec diffs. New steel driveshafts replace the old plastic ones, and a new, simpler transmission now includes a center differential and replaces the slipper clutch with the new cush-drive system also seen on the X-Maxx.

Another X-Maxx feature, the clipless body design, also makes its E-Revo debut here, with two slick new color schemes to choose from. Bigger tires, beefier arms, aluminum-bodies shocks, front and rear chassis braces, and bigger driveline bearings are all new on the E-Revo 2.0, and built with bashing in mind.

While Traxxas lists the E-Revo 2.0 at $589.99, we'll be selling it for $569.99. Batteries and a compatible charger are sold seperately, and required for operation. Supplies will be extremely limited, so pre-order yours soon — and be on the lookout for our advanced-delivery display model, which should be shipping soon!

The Losi Tenacity Family Grows by One

Announced yesterday, the Losi Tenacity-T expands on the popular Tenacity platform, adding a truggy to the family. Featuring the same steel driveshafts, electronics, and 12mm shocks as its brethren, the Tenacity-T is probably as close to a 4WD stadium truck as we're going to get.

The truck is due late February, and a display is due to arrive sometime next week, so be sure to check it out when it arrives, and keep your eyes glue to our Facebook and Instagram feeds to see when it arrives!

Also due next week are the other two Tenacity vehicles, the Tenacity-MT and the Tenacity-SCT. All three vehicles will sell for $399.99, and require a battery and charger, which are not included. Stop in and check them out!

 
 

Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer Announced, Due Early March

UDR-Action-Gallery-9.jpg

We've known about this truck for a while, but it's now been publicly revealed by Traxxas! The Unlimited Desert Racer (UDR) is a 1/7 scale baja truck with a solid rear axle and independent front suspension. Coupled with X-Maxx style differentials, a dual-bellcrank steering setup, and Traxxas' new Extreme-Travel GTR shocks, this should be a solid big scale basher.

The only bummer in the whole thing is the integrated, fixed battery connectors. This practice prevents the customer from utilizing non-Traxxas batteries (which I'm sure what the point), meaning if you like what you see in the UDR, you better also like Traxxas' battery selection and Traxxas chargers. Probably not a big deal for most, but some will surly dislike this move.

The UDR is due in for sale Early March, but we'll be getting a display unit before that, so keep an eye out for its arrival, then stop in and check it out! The unlimited Desert Racer will sell for $749.99.
