The folks from Duratrax have released an official video for their DXR8-E 1/8 Buggy. As always, it’s a very well done video, and may help you make a decision if you are on the fence about picking one up!
An 1/8 scale buggy has always been a great vehicle to have in your RC lineup. From durability to speed, big air and control, the buggy can always put a smile on your face. The Duratrax DXR8-E is an electric buggy kit. It comes as a rolling chassis that requires you to finish it off with your own electronics. So is the DXR8-E going to have a spot in our bashing stable?

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.
You have seen the unboxing video of the DuraTraxDXR8-E Buggy, and now we have got all of our parts in and ready to go! We are using the Castle Creations Mamba Monster, a Futaba S9157 Digital High-Torque Servo, a TrakPower 4s 5600mah LiPo battery, and our Futaba 4PK radio system to complete the buggy.
So I was just getting ready to take some pictures and unbox the new DuraTraxDXR8-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!
