What's up Traxxas forums?
My name is Jared Guynes. I have been a Traxxas owner off and on for a few years now. Professionally I am sponsored by Monster Energy and recently came across a new RC car that I think some of you guys may have heard about. The car is the 1969 Monster Energy WCC Camaro - Traxxas Limited Edition. Here is a pic of when they handed it to me in the box.
Then me taking it out of the box...
All the goodies I got that night...
The car next to a KBVXL
You will notice the wheels, tires and suspension are the same.
Of course, I could not have that lame blue antennae, nor the brushed motor. So without having ever turned it on, I bought some goodies.
Now the car is essentially the Ken Block Rally Car with a different color wheels and a custom shell.
I tried the car on a 3S lipo, and the speed was too much to control. The rubber flew off the tires, it was nearly wrecking... it was too much. I chose to just double up on the stock NIMH batteries and run them in parallel for more run time.
Now then, just for giggles, here is my 1:1 scale car.
I can give you guys a little more info on the WCC 69 Camaro.
-The car was made in extremely limited edition
-The model is not for sale
-The model was only given to Monster Sales Reps via Coke/Monster
-The car was intended to be a 100% marketing tool, as a reward to vendors, or as a way to coax deals. It was NOT meant to be taken home by sales reps who are greedy and misusing their power to be given to their children. It was NOT meant to ever be sold on E-Bay.
-You can expect the 69 Camaro shell to be offered by Traxxas at sometime in the future as a naked shell. They paid GM the licensing rights for the cast.
-There might be less than 100 of these in existence, but I am not sure.
I am working on a video for you guys right now to show it in more detail. If you all have any questions, post up.
