Traxxas has finally listened to us old LaTrax collectors by reviving this long forgotten brand. I suppose that Traxxas finally obtain the rights to the name back from Brinkmann after 30 years of inactivity.
Traxxas hasn't had a need for a mini-THCC previously. Maybe now they do? Since the 2S LiPo packs from Traxxas will not fit in the LaTrax Rally (per specs) I suppose it's a possibility. However since 2S packs sold by others WILL fit both the 1/16 Traxxas models AND this 1/18 LaTrax model, it seems prudent to switch out the Molex/Kyosho/Tamiya-style connector.
If you're gonna be stupid, you'd better be tough.
Looks like a fun little car but those phillips head screws need to go. Maybe RC screwz will have a kit. Hopefully they're not coarse thread as well.

I'm hoping the same thing. Something that small doesn't need that many screws to be honest.
Summit 1/16 VXL
Let's stick one of their 10,000 mAh 2s packs on the roof. Well, then again, we may have to make some suspension changes... As in stiffer lol.
Summit 1/16 VXL
Man, I will drifting one of these in my basement for sure! They release a sub-$200 car, and we can't wait to get it and turn it into a $500 car!! Of course, Danielhr77 will try to turn it into a six wheel drive monster truck or something!!

I had no idea there was such history behind the LaTrax name. It's really nice to see Traxxas branching out and using this as a new way to bring quality RC vehicles to consumers at a more accessible price.
I also think it's great to see a 1/18th scale car at market. I truly loved my HPI Micro RS4, but they terminated production of EVERYTHING so you literally can't break anything lest that be its last run. Perhaps a new LaTrax can be my new favorite micro on-road!
I just ordered two. Will add to my collection of "already too many toys" per my wife! Luckily, I have two boys to blame it on! Oh, better get three!
I'll try anything once, maybe twice!
Having a hard time deciding... I know they are completely different but... Rally or telluride

I just saw this for this first time. First impression it looked a little toy like and reminded me of the xmods cars. Then I looked at the accessories and the available hopups they'll have will definitely make this thing cool. I hope they release the body in a clear version so we can paint our own schemes.
