traxxas_latrax_teton

Looks like the Toy Fair news from Nuremberg is starting to come in. Check out the new LaTrax Teton powered by Traxxas. It’s an 1/18th scale 4WD Monster Truck, comes RTR with a 2.4Ghz Radio, is waterproof, with part number #76054. Retail price should be $149.

We can’t help but notice it looks like a mini Traxxas Telluride. Even comes in the same colors. Maybe there will be a Grand Teton edition?

    Well I hate the name, but this looks like it could be a fun truck for my son.

  3. Joshua opened their gaping maw and spake:

    I wonder if Traxxas knows that teton means breast? (The mountains were named by lonely french fur trappers.)

    • James proclaimed on this day:

      I’m sure they knew exactly what they were doing. It’s been a running joke for years and years.

  4. Foxx attempted to articulate the following, but failed:

    The animated gifs are annoying, sorry.

  5. Mike bailey's mouth spewed forth:

    The mini’s are making a come back it seems.

    While I admire the fact that traxxas is coming out with some smaller stuff to compete with a couple of the other companies out there, I am definitely not impressed with what they’ve produced. I’ve driven the Latrax rally, losi Mini 8ights, 1/18th ECX torments/ruckus’s, HPI RS4′s, and the rally from traxxas’s Latrax line has to be the worst one out of all of them. I do work in a hobby shop and the amount of these cars being brought back with burned out electronics is scary. Traxxas has fallen off from what i’d consider to be their glory days. The only thing traxxas currently has going for them is their part support.

    • David M Jr broke a vow of silence to say:

      yea! i use have hpi 1/18 cant remmy name it been long gone not make anymore have brushed motor pretty fun then work on brushless this is rip gear up lol no partsi got rid of this as no more make. traxxas LaTrax Teton will people buy??

  7. Greg proclaimed on this day:

    I looks really cool. Like a telluride with proline desperadoes and a version of Big Joe tires. I own an ECX 1/18 Torement and it’s an awesome little truck. And at $109 RTR it’s a hot seller. Horizon is top notch with customer service so it makes is great product. I can see me sourcing a set LaTrax wheels and body for my ECX.
