See it in Action: Traxxas XRT [Video]

The XRT is the latest larger-scale basher from Traxxas, and from what I’ve seen, it looks like an impressive machine. Similar in size to the X-Maxx, the XRT is less monster truck and more speed basher. If you love high-speed cornering and high-flying jumps, this might be the R/C model for you.

Before this massive machine hits store shelves, see how it performs, thanks to this action footage from Traxxas:
