Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer - RC Groups

Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer

Traxxas raises the bar again with its Pro-Scale Unlimited Desert Racer. Designed to be as scale as possible while retaining total control over rough terrain, the Unlimited Desert Racer is realism and performance.

Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer

A Monster Trophy Truck on 6s!

With an overall length over 27", this super scale trophy truck from Traxxas is literally the next big thing! The Unlimited Desert Racer is a scaled-down trophy truck with accurately rendered suspension and an external roll cage with all the details you could cram onto it! There's a pair of shocks at each BFGoodrich KR3 wheel, and true swaybars front and rear.

CLICK HERE for more info on the new Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer.

A Velineon VXL-6s and 2200kv motor put the power to the ground through a 4s up to 6s LiPo. Power is transferred from the motor and direct drive transmission, through shafts to the front and rear differentials. The front end utilizes a long travel a-arm suspension, while the rear has a solid axle and 4-link suspension.

As an avid desert racing fan, I'm loving the sale Unlimited Desert Racer from Traxxas.

That's...

That's freaking awesome!

I've got a Yeti TT, but I'm gonna' need this too!

$800, though..

But it's bigger than the Yeti TT, but not a lot bigger. So, probably a proper 8th scale?

Seems like an odd size. I guess there is no "class" for large scale, other than 1/5 scales, so maybe it does not matter. Just looking at wheelbase(16.5"), this is almost 2" longer than a 1/8 truggy (14.8"), and 3" shorter than the Losi Super Baja Rey(19.5"). And it is around 2" shorter than the Xmax (18.9")

I am just glad that Traxxxas is bringing new models and newer designs (to them anyways) to the market. Traxxas models have become a little long in the tooth. This one does look pretty cool to me.

Holy crap that video is awesome. Some of those shots it's 100% indistinguishable from a full-scale truck. The movement of the suspension and everything is just freaking killer.

I loooove my Yeti TT but this is even better. And that's tough for me to say.

Yep, looks like a chase helicopter shooting a trophy truck.

Is there a decent picture of battery stowage? Are we talking packs in series? How big a battery will it hold?

I've got tons of 4000MAh 3S packs that I could run in series for 6S. I'm running them in my Yeti now.

I just might put my Yeti TT up for sale to help fund this. I really, really want one. Enough so that I'd sell my favorite truck to get it.
