While in my local Best Buy electronics store last night, Cubby and I had a salesperson look up “Traxxas” in their computer system just to see if we could buy one. It turns out that yes you can buy several different Traxxas vehicles directly from Best Buy here in the United States. The trucks are not stocked in stores, but they are available for purchase off Best Buy’s website and can be shipped either to your local store or directly to your house. I think this shows just how far our hobby has come the last few years.
There does seem to be one downside, price. The brushless E-Revo that you can buy for $750 off of Tower Hobbies costs over $1100 from Best Buy, but who knows what this collaboration might turn into down the road. It would totally blow our minds if a few years from now we could walk into a hobby grade rc section at our local Best Buy.

Yes it’s Friday, HERE is another mystery link, dare you click?
