So I woke up this morning and saw the new Traxxas advertisement and thought I'd see what people wrote on the traxxas forums. Apparently, I'm one of the first people to write about this! Here are some of the specs for the Telluride 4x4:
XL-5 with Titan 550 motor on 7 cell 8.4 volt power
Kumho Venture MT Tires
All Hex Hardware
Revo Diffs with 100,000 weight oil
I think Traxxas made this truck as a trailing truck (but smaller and cheaper compared to the summit). I actually like the idea of traxxas making a trailing truck, my only problem with it is that the XL-5 combo is so old and they should've gotten a new electronics setup, and another problem I see is that it isn't a kit! Many people who want a trailing truck usually like to build it themselves. I'm not a huge fan of trailing trucks, but I think they should've done it differently. Buying a kit and building stiff is one of the best things you can do for an RC. I break my Slash 4x4 all the time, just so I can take it apart and fix it. But that is a high powered machine, whereas this Telluride is going to be slow again so you won't break as much.
What do you guys think about it? Leave some feedback below!
