A few days ago I reviewed the Traxxas Slash—a fairly large RC truck featuring 2-wheel drive, cool sound effects, and plenty of speed! Today I take a look at the Slash's little cousin, the Traxxas LaTrax SST. This machine is considerably smaller than the Slash, but it's definitely got just as much going for it as its larger counterpart. In fact, I scarcely know which one to rank higher in terms of the sheer fun of playing with them. If you'd like to experience my dilemma, click on through and read all about it!

RC cars can be a lot of fun, but when you look at the high-end cars they can be a bit intimidating. If you’re looking to get your feet wet you want something that you can pull out of the box, plug it in, and get driving with a minimum of hassle. 

 

Meet the LaTrax Teton powered by Traxxas. Known for their big, mean RC machines, this 1/18 Scale 4WD Monster Truck is RTR - Ready-to-run right out of the box. Does it live up to the reputation of the brand? Read on, true believers.

RC cars have changed and evolved, keeping pace with connected technology. Seeing the Traxxas E-REVO and E-Maxx brushless vehicles for the first time is an intimidating site; both of them were a damned sight bigger than I thought they’d be. Opening the boxes, I pulled out the first bits of styrofoam and laid them out carefully. This was going to be fun.

Quad CopterGreen CopterBlue

One of the coolest and most versatile types of RC toys on the market today is most assuredly the four rotor helicopter (aka quadcopter), and this is especially true of the Alias High Performance Quad-Rotor Helicopter from LaTrax. That's because this copter can do a whole lot more than just fly. As its box boasts, the Alias is capable of "3D flips, rolls, and twists," and it is "fast and easy for anyone to fly!" So, just how well does the Alias live up to its box's boasting? This week I had the chance to put the Alias to the test and find out. Click through for full details on the Alias' flight-test performance results.
