Adventure Truck Challenge – Traxxas, Axial, Vaterra, RC4WD!

Shootouts, or  Challenges as we all this one are never easy to do. They require lots of time, effort, money, beer, and work to fairly compare anything to each other. In this case, we picked the 4 top RTR Scalers on the market and put them to a test and picked which one came out on top. Traxxas brought all the tech, Axial brought years of competition experience, Vaterra tried a quiet upset, and RC4WD brought the realism to the test. Each was given an opportunity to win, and we judged them on a few categories and three stages of challenge. Read the 20 page article in issue #28 of Velocity RC Cars Magazine (available for instant download late Nov 2017).
