Staff Opinion

Ah, the Circuit. This vehicle has been through so much. It has always had a great chassis and durable design. It now comes with waterproof electronics, a 2.4GHz Spektrum radio system, and a AC-powered peak charger in the box. All that makes the Circuit a decent value. But a lack of hop-up parts and poor steering keeps this from being a stellar truck. While it does have a much lower price point than it's main competition, the Traxxas Rustler, it doesn't offer value that the Rustler does, either. The Circuit is by no means a bad truck - it's much better than 80% of the stuff out there today. But it isn't the best, merely good enough.

Staff Opinion

We'd really like to be able to say the Ruckus is a great truck for any beginner. But that isn't entirely true. The Ruckus, like its ECX siblings, is built with durability in mind; great for keeping broken parts to a minimum, but bad for handling and performance. The Ruckus is pretty much perfect for a young kid's first hobby-grade R/C truck. But if an adult (or even a teenager) is looking for a starter truck, they're better off with a Traxxas Stampede... for the time being. ECX is a company trying to figure out who they are, and it would be foolish to count them out. But a lack of hop-ups and aftermarket support prevents the Ruckus from being everyone's perfect starter truck.

Staff Opinion

The same 2.4GHz radio, waterproof electronics, and peak charger from the ECX Circuit and Ruckus are present on this truck as well, making the ECX Torment a complete, all-in-one purchase. And let me tell you - this thing is durable! We've really put this truck through the wringer, and it blew past pretty much anything we had to throw at it. The major competition for the Torment is the Traxxas Slash, and it's a fairly tough battle between the two. Is the Torment as good a truck as the Slash? No, but it's close. And with a price tag quite a bit less than the Slash, close might be good enough. Only the poor handling & lack of hop-ups keeps this from being anything more than a kid's first hobby-grade R/C truck.

Staff Opinion

The Traxxas Rustler has been a great seller for us over the years. The lower suspension setup is great for handling and speed on dirt, gravel, or pavement. The durability that Traxxas is known for will keep the broken parts down to a minimum. The waterproof electronics keep everything working in the rain or snow, and with plenty of options for upgrading almost anything on the truck, there's no limit to how unique you can make your Rustler. While it does have a tougher time tackling the rougher terrain than its cousins, the Stampede and the Slash can handle, the Rustler will out-perform them on pretty much any smooth surface. All in all, the Rustler is still a great truck for any beginner.

  • Low center-of-gravity provides great handling on pavement or dirt
  • Upgradable to LiPos for even more power and run time!
  • 40+ MPH out of the box, capable of 70+ MPH
  • Requires 4 AA Batteries

Staff Opinion

The Rustler VXL is the speed demon of the Rustler family. The Velineon Brushless power system is efficient and fast! The truck is built to handle that power well; the lower suspension setup is great for handling and speed on dirt, gravel, or pavement (but not super great on grass). The Velineon system maintains that waterproof element, keeping everything working in the rain or snow. Since it's the same chassis as the basic Rustler, there are still plenty of options for upgrading almost anything on the truck, from shocks to suspension arms to cool-looking aluminum parts. Make the Rustler VXL the spectacle of your cul-de-sac!

  • Revo-spec Torque-Control slipper clutch system
  • High ground clearance means grass is no problem!
  • Upgradable to brushless motor technology
  • 30+ MPH out of the box

Staff Opinion

The Stampede has always been a great seller. It has a high ground clearance for running in grass. It's waterproof, so an accidental (or intentional) splash won't hurt. And it has a great price point that makes it very beginner friendly, while still allowing for upgrades in the future. And Traxxas built the Stampede for bashing, though the Slash is slightly more durable. With tons of hop-ups and accessories available for the Stampede, everyone can find aftermarket parts to suit their needs (or desires). Bottom-line: if you're looking for a great beginner-friendly truck, the Stampede is the truck for you!

Staff Opinion

The great thing about the Monster Jam series by Traxxas is the trucks are all based on a solid platform. The Stampede has always been a top choice for the backyard basher, and now you can get the Stampede's reputation with your favorite Monster Jam appearance! Since sponsorship always change, so to do the available bodies, but rest assured that they all work just as well as the Stampede is known for. Better yet, the Monster Jam trucks feature custom parts not available on the Stampede, like a stylish front bumper, color-coordinated plastic parts, and stickier tires. So if you want monster truck action, like you see on TV, check out Traxxas' Monster Jam trucks!

Staff Opinion

An alternative name for the Stampede VXl could be "The Wheelie Machine". With its short wheelbase, high center-of-gravity, and Velineon Brushless power system, the Stampede VXL is the only 2WD vehicle Traxxas makes that comes with a wheelie bar in the box, and it needs it. The Stampede VXL can conquer almost any terrain with its high ground clearance - almost 4"! The Stampede VXL is great for any R/C hobbist that craves speed and the ability to go anywhere. While the handling isn't as great as vehicles with a lower CG, the Stampede VXL powers through rough terrain as if it weren't there. A monster truck with insane speed? Yup, the Stampede VXL fits that description quite well.

Staff Opinion

The Traxxas Slash is an epic truck. That's truly the only way to describe it. It changed everything we thought we knew about the hobby. The Slash popularized waterproof electronics, it redefined durability... and hey, let's face it - the Slash ushered in the reign of short course trucks as the dominant vehicle style in R/C today. Hindsight being what it is, it's hard to be surprised. The Slash is a beast of truck. You imagination is your only limit with the Slash. This truck will be the benchmark for this generation of trucks, much like the RC10 and the Hornet in decades past. The first decade of the 21st century may belong to the T-Maxx, but this is the decade of the Slash. Long live the King!

Staff Opinion

There isn't much Traxxas could have done to make the Slash a better basher truck. Then they introduced the Slash VXL. All of the great aspects of the Slash coupled with the tremendous power and speed the Velineon Brushless power system results in the absolute pinnacle of 2WD basher vehicles. The Slash VXL is the most durable, efficient, and user-friendly 2WD truck we carry. You still have the largest selection of hop-ups we carry to choose from when upgrading. Add in a LiPo battery and really make these trucks fly! All that, combined with Traxxas' great customer support, pretty much makes the Slash VXL a sure bet for any backyard basher.
