    Limited Edition 69 Camaro

    My dad brought home a sweet new RC car from work (distributing Monster Energy) today. It's a West Coast Customs RC 69 Camaro with Monster Energy graphics. It is a traxxas made car and appears to have the same chassis as the Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta minus the brushless system. It's still pretty quick, though not like a Nitro. I can't find anything about it on the internet but I figured this would be a good place to see if anyone else has heard about it.


    It wont allow me to post pictures but if anyone would like me to email it to them and they can post it up I'd be more than willing to.

    My dad gave me one yesterday! It's pretty freaking quick, apparently will do 30mph? So much fun and so realistic to drive around.

    Here are some pics!

    Love me the 69 camaro, toss a nice metallic blue with white racing stripes paint job on it. How much you want? I still have room to max out my cc card. :-)

    That is sick. Love the body, I think those might be the only brushed rallies out right now. What are they for? A promotion? I love the body and the wheels look like the Ken block wheels with chrome centers.

    I wonder if Traxxas will sell these to the public?

    I wonder if traxxas is selling the parts for that. I could use that big block motor mount on my mini revo. Can you look in the paperwork and please find out the part number for the motor mount and motor plate?

    I have the exploded diagram but not sure what I'm really looking for. If you could give me an idea I would be happy to let you know.

    AFAIK these will not be sold to the public but are a promotional piece given out to the re-sellers of monster products. I know monster is sponsoring a West Coast Customs episode where they will take a modern 2011 Camero frame and fit it with a 69 styled body to look like this R/C replica.

    What will the resellers do with them? Give aways? or for the reseller to keep? I can't imagine Traxxas paying license fees for the Camaro body and not selling to the public at some point, in some form.

    I sure hope the Mustang body turns out as well as that Camaro one! So far the pictures of it leave a little bit of disappointment. Though I will get one because I love Mustangs; makes me wish I still had my '02 GT.

    Ha I figured you guys would figure it was a fake, I took the photo with it sitting atop it's box to help persuade you that it's real. I wouldn't waste my time trying to trick you guys into believing it was real if it really wasn't. I have no idea what their plans are for these, my dad occasionally brings home things that monster sends him but he's not the one who actually deals with the company so he doesn't ever seem to know a whole lot about them. They're probably intended to be raffled off at retailers in order to promote the sale of monster. That's what things like this are usually for.

    I thought it was fake for sure! Now I am beginning to doubt I am even really a chicken...

    This body can give us hope that there will be a suitable aftermarket for a car this size... I really do love my KB Fiesta body, but I would love something else that's a bit more on the "mean" side, like a '69 Camaro.

    The owner of my LHS told me that he was told if the Mustang's sell well that the Camero will be on the streets soon. I thought he was joking until I saw this.

    I am sure traxxas will come up with that kit. I wonder how fast that 12 turn is on there, I would love to put a velineon from the slash 4x4 on it!

    Seriously, I've never been into on road rc cars, but this thing is sick! I would definitely buy one, especially if it was brushless.
