Xtreme Racing Carbon Fiber Towers for Duratrax DXR8-E
The Duratrax DXR8-E is starting to really take off, and with that the aftermarket manufactures are catching on and making hop-ups for it. Xtreme Racing has introduced some new very trick looking 4 mm carbon fiber front and rear shock towers for the new Duratrax electric buggy. These new Xtreme Racing towers are lighter than stock, bolt up with no modifications, and should be plenty strong. The front tower has a street price of $38, while the rear is $40. They are available right now, and you can hit THIS link for complete information.

Our Duratrax DXR8-E review is going up later in the week, till then, check out THIS Duratrax review of ours.

Mandi Unboxing Duratrax DXR8

So I was just getting ready to take some pictures and unbox the new  DuraTrax DXR8-E Buggy when a good friend of ours, Mandi stopped by the office. You may know her as she helps us out from time to time at events and stuff like that. It was perfect timing. I asked if she would mind ‘helping out’, but I’m not sure she knew I was just going to leave her out there. Sorry Mandi! Thanks for playing along though. As always.. everyone is always happy when you stop in the office to say hi!

Here are some pictures, and make sure to click the big video picture, or ‘read more’ to check out the full video and more pics!


The folks over at  DuraTrax just released a teaser video for the new Duratrax DXR8-E! Enjoy!
