We received a Duratrax 835E for review a few weeks ago and everyplace we went people seemed interested in it. That seemed a bit odd to us, I mean most people have seen/driven an 8th scale buggy before. However, the 835E is different, it’s a RTR brushless buggy that comes in at a fairly low price point. For less than the price of what most brands charge for just their buggy, the 835E comes RTR ready for the track. A lot of people want to know if the price point is “too good to be true”, or if the latest Duratrax is legit. Here is our review, click the “Read More” and find out the real scoop…

The newest addition to the ever growing Duratrax line-up is the 835E Electric RTR Buggy. The 835E is based off its nitro powered brother and features waterproofing to make it truly bash ready.
8th scale buggies are known for being great bash machines. For big brushless power the 835E comes with a 2200kV motor and 120 amp Onyx speed controller. A 2.4 GHz radio system is standard and removes any worries of radio conflicts, while big bore shocks help soak up the nasty stuff. Throw in some grey anodized parts for bling factor and the Duratrax 835E is ready to turn heads and go big at your local bash spot.
The 835E is available in 3 color choices- black, white and yellow. The part number is #DTXD78** and its street price is only $399. Expect the new 835E to hit hobby shop shelves in mid June. For more information on everything Duratrax click THIS LINK for their official website.

It is no secret I hate nitro, so I found it quite “interesting” that Brian would drop a nitro car on my desk for review (then he RAN out of my office). The new Duratrax Nissan GT-R has all the makings of a success, it has a big engine, a 2 speed tranny, and ultra hot scale looks. Did we have a good time with it, or did I end up smashing it to bits with a hammer out of frustration? Lets find out…
Here are some unboxing pictures of perhaps the best looking Duratrax to ever hit the market, the nitro powered Nissan GT-R. The Nissan is a 4wd on-road machine that has plenty of features like an .18 sized engine, a 2.4 GHz radio system, and a two speed transmission. Click the “read more” button for 3 more unboxing galleries, and hit THIS LINK for more information on the Nissan GT-R on the official Duratrax website. Look for our full BigSquidRC review to go live in the next week.
Everyone has a least one Traxxas vehicle in their fleet (but most of you have more like 10). Now Duratrax has a comprehensive tool kit for working on and maintaining your Traxxas vehicles.
What does the new kit include? It comes with a total of 19 pieces- hex drivers, nut drivers, screwdrivers and wrenches in multiple sizes. Part number for the new kit is #DTXR0410 and it has a street price of only $18. For more information HERE is the link to the Duratrax website.
Hot scale looks are the biggest thing going in rc right now and the new Camaro ZL1 Nitro RTR from Duratrax has hit the nail on the head. It not only has a trick licensed body, but it’s also nitro, making it all that more realistic.
