Unboxing the Traxxas TRX-4 Kit Video

Team Redcat TR-SC10E Unboxing

Unboxing The Team Redcat TR-SC10E Short Course Truck

Announced by Team Redcat just over a month ago was the TR-SC10E. As this truck is a Team Redcat release, that means it was designed to take on some serious bashing.

Recently we received one of Maverick’s new Strada DT desert trucks for review. Much like the Strada RX that we unboxed a few days ago, the DT version comes as a ready to run with a powerful brushless power system.

Kyosho Mad Crusher VE Unboxing

Unboxing The Kyosho Mad Crusher VE
