THE LATEST THRASH TESTS.
12 TRAXXAS 4-TEC 3.0 CHEVROLET
John Weston gets his hands on the Traxxas 4-Tec 3.0 chassis
that provides a platform for the stunning Chevrolet Corvette
Stingray body. Using the latest 3.0 chassis means a longer
wheelbase, larger wheels and tyres, and a wider track that
enhances stability and handling compared to the original
4-Tec and this then is topped off with a detailed Stingray
body complete with a clear section to expose the engine bay
and the realistic recreation of the V8.
42 FTX ZORRO BRUSHLESS TROPHY TRUCK
The latest off-road model from FTX is their Zorro Brushless
Trophy Truck. With an RRP under 260 for the ready-to-run
that includes a Etronix 2900kV motor and a Voltz 3200mAh
2S LiPos as standard, the package offers some serious
performance per pound. John Weston gets behind the wheel
of the shaft-driven 1:10 4WD model and heads to some of the
toughest of off-road environments in this Thrash Test.
