The RC Newb Podcast - Episode 48: A Tale of Two Trail Trucks

By: Tim Gluth

2017 has been a banner year for the "scale R/C" scene. With new models being introduced from Redcat Racing, HPI, Traxxas, and Carisma Scale Adventure, there are more rigs to choose from than ever before. Two of these options sit on opposite ends of the spectrum, both in price and features. Redcat Racing's Everest GEN7 carries the budget-friendly, no-frills banner while the Traxxas TRX-4 brings features and creature comforts to the party (along with a premium price).

I invited past guest, and TRX-4 owner, Mike George (Munster RC) to discuss the scale scene and specifically, these two trucks. It was a great discussion with quite a bit of mutual appreciation for what both brands are attempting to do with these first-time offerings.
