Traxxas Unveils Its First-Ever Factory R/C Drag Car Featuring A Retro C10 Truck Body

Not long after Traxxas launched the Slash back in 2008, R/C enthusiasts began modifying the platform for miniaturized drag strip applications. Sure, it’s technically a dirt-shredding shortcourse truck, but give it a lightweight chassis, a set of stiff shocks, and some narrow street tires, and it can easily be transformed into a bonafide 10th-scale quarter-mile maverick.

Apparently, Traxxas has been taking note, because it’s just unveiled images of its first-ever factory R/C drag car. Based on the Slash, it comes clad in a 1967 Chevrolet C10 truck body that looks every bit like its full-sized inspiration — even down to its strip-ready styling. Around the front, its bumper barely clears the ground; at the rear, a spoiler juts from its bed and an adjustable wheelie bar keeps things from getting too out of hand. Riding on some Weld racing wheels shod in some Ultra-Wide Mickey Thompson ET Drag Slicks, this is one R/C car that’s sure to stoke your high-octane excitement. While pricing and specs have yet to be released, you can learn more in the meantime at the link below.
