THE Traxxas Ford GT Review

Traxxas made huge news in early February when they announced the Ford GT. At a time when on-road had been in decline for years, Traxxas rolled the dice with a hot looking Ford GT body and an all new 4-Tec 2.0 chassis underneath.

The CEN Racing Colossus XT is a giant brushless powered monster truck. Pretty much every single one of those words means “Time to Bash!!!” to us.
