Nine days ago we started March Bash-ness with 16 trucks. After all of you guys cast nearly 6,000 votes (most of which were legitimate!) over that time, 15 trucks have been sent home and we now have a winner. The Ultimate Basher as decided by the fans is HPI Racing’s Savage Flux HP! Though just barely, when the final vote was cast, the Savage Flux and Slash 4×4 were only separated by 2%! The Savage Flux HP squeezed out the win with 51% of the nearly 1,000 votes cast over the last two days! It was so close that we weren’t really sure who would win until the poll was closed.
While the Savage Flux HP drives away with the trophy, Traxxas fans shouldn’t feel defeated, it was a hard fought battle and the Slash 4×4 is certainly a worthy runner-up, just making it to the final was a feat in itself. This was a fantastic showdown between two heavyweight contenders, and the back and forth fight was proof of that.
