Traxxas Goes Retro with the Bigfoot #1

Traxxas Goes Retro with the Bigfoot #1

If you’re starting your wish lists for the 2017 holiday season, this new release from Traxxas might find its way near the top. After rolling out a modern Bigfoot monster truck model last year, the Texas-based R/C vehicle brand is heading down memory lane by introducing a classic, Bigfoot #1  ready-to-run (RTR) model to their lineup.

As with the previous Bigfoot model, this new entry is based on the popular, well-established Stampede platform. Running on a Titan 12T brushed motor, the 2-wheel drive Bigfoot #1 features large monster truck tires, waterproof electronics, and a 2.4 radio system. While those details are nice, it’s what’s sitting on top of those components that’s sure to draw attention.

A stunning replica of the original Bigfoot monster truck, made of extra-thick Lexan, includes both molded and attached details that remain true to this original dream machine.

Chrome accents highlight this brilliant blue body, with a gleaming rollbar, bumpers, and exposed dual-carb manifold look as good on this 1/10-scale model as they did on the 1:1 version.

As with other Traxxas models, the chassis and body are designed to take just about anything you can throw at them.
