Traxxas is showing off a lot of new stuff at IHobby this year, the new Stampede 4×4 VXL is probably the biggest news so far. It’s an all new chassis and built for power with a brushless VXL system already installed. A 7-cell NiMH will be included and as with all VXL stuff it will be LiPo ready.
We got the chance to drive it around a bit on the Traxxas Dirt Track and it is a huge difference over the old 2wd chassis. The 4×4 is much more stable and much easier to drive when getting on the power.
Be sure to keep an eye on the Traxxas web site for more info.
New from the guys at MaxAmps, 12v and 24v power supplies. Both are capable of a massive 47 amp, 1150 watt output for all those super chargers out on the market now. The power supply runs off 100 – 240v AC. List price for the 12v is $89.9, while the 24v is listed at $179.99.
Check out the MaxAmps web site for some more info and to order yours.
And guess what, you can only see it at our booth, 2208, at the IHobby Show.

It’s that time of year again.. iHobby Expo time! We started delivering and setting up our booth and race track today, and will be heading back with another truck load of stuff and more setup tomorrow.
The exciting thing this year? We will be LIVE from iHobby Expo! Live updates! Live Video feeds! And a few other surprises!
Make sure to keep checking back as we bring you the reports from the show floor, plus throughout the day we will be testing our LIVE feeds! They will probably be of us setting up the booths, but hey.. it’s LIVE! Hopefully we can keep Cubby from constantly mooning the camera!
Here are a few pics I snapped during setup day one. There were a TON of people already in high gear so I have a feeling this is going to be a great show! Great Planes has a whole new booth layout, and it looks like Horizon has some new stuff as well!
