Mercedes-Benz G 63 6x6 Announced by Traxxas


It seems like Traxxas is a crawler-first company these days, as every new product announced in the last few months was TRX-4 related — and today is no different. The 6x6 Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG is a longer version of the TRX-4’s rigid steel frame and includes extra bracing and crossmembers to provide exceptional torsional rigidity to resist chassis twist under load. The factory-installed LED lights and detailed scale body make this a unique crawling experience, though it still comes with all the perks of a fully-loaded TRX-4: two-speed transmission, remote-locking differentials (on all three axles), and GTS aluminum-bodies shocks. Unlike a standard TRX-4, the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6x6 comes with 2.2” wheels and tires, sitting it higher off the ground for maximum ground clearance.

The Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6x6 will sell for $599.99 and will require a battery and charger (sold separately). We should have a display model in the store next week, but there are currently no details on when to expect regular inventory to start shipping. Stop in and place your pre-order today to secure your spot in the queue!

Traxxas has been focused very much on their scale crawler and trail-truck offerings, and the newest addition to the clan is the Mercedes-Benz G500 — which is on display now here in the store! The G500 offers the same great specs as the previous versions of the TRX-4 like the Ford Bronco and Chevy Blazer. It’s a 12.3” wheelbase, offers front and rear remote-lockable differentials, and comes with a two-speed transmission. Like the Chevy Blazer before it, the G500 will sell for $489.99 and requires a battery and charger, which are sold separately.

Stop in and check it out, and if you like what you see, pre-orders are welcome!


NEW DEMO: Traxxas TRX-4 Sport with Traxx


Over the weekend, Traxxas announced their newest addition to the rapidly-expanding TRX-4 product line. It’s a version of the TRX-4 Sport loaded up with lots of goodies. First, foremost, and most obviously, the wheels and tires have been swapped for the new Traxx, giving this truck a larger contact patch and grippy treads, which help it shrug off the deepest mud and float across sand. Traxx’ increases ground clearance and approach angles to let you straddle even larger obstacles and climb steeper grades without breaking a sweat.


Next, we move on to the pre-installed LED light kit, which features headlights, taillights, and a wide 28-LED rack-mounted light bar, all fully waterproof for all-weather adventure. The injection molded grill and tailgate feature integrated lenses for additional scale detail and protect the LEDs.

Finally, the TRX-4 Traxx Edition includes an entire complement of scale accessories. The tough and functional Expedition Rack comes outfitted with a replica snorkel, side mirrors, traction boards, fire extinguisher, jack, and canisters for extreme scale detail. Inner fenders and clear windows give the TRX-4 a realistic scale appearance.

Best of all, we have a DEMO! Stop in and check it out and take it for a spin. Pre-orders are welcome!

Already have a TRX-4 and thinking about the Traxx? We have those in stock as well as the Traxxas-recommended lift kit and higher-torque servo. Outfit your TRX-4 with some awesome accessories!


New Traxxas Steel Center Differential Announced


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).
