Just go to your local hobby store and ask him if you can try out a TRAXXAS truck BEFORE buying it. If you look on the traxxas website they guarantee that you can drive a traxxas model before you buy it.
The test drive program is at participating hobby shops. We don't garuntee that you would be able to test drive the vehicles. Again it is at participating hobby shops. Here is a quote from our website:
