Traxxas X-Maxx 8S
That’s two 2017 awards for the mighty X-Maxx 8S.
Not only is it your top pick for electric truck for
a second year in a row, you also named it the top
innovation of 2017. Nice! Makes sense to us. Can
you name any other truck that’s 8S-ready out of the
box, can top 50mph, flip itself back over if you roll
it, and is as huge as the X-Maxx? Nah, you can’t. The
X-Maxx is an instant legend and can blast through
tough terrain that would stop just about anything
else in its tracks. With 8S power, this is the beast
loyal X-Maxx fans have been waiting for.
Pro-Line Badlands MX
After trading off with the Trencher, the Badlands is
back as your top tire, and this time it’s the new “MX”
version. The chunky moto-style knobs are the hot
setup for loose and loamy dirt, mud, or grass. And
just look at ’em—these things are gnarly. Pro-Line
offers the MX meats unmounted in 2. 8 and 3. 8 sizes,
or you can get them factory-glued to F- 11 wheels.
But you probably already knew that, since you
voted for them.
Traxxas EZ-Peak iD Live
That’s two in a row for the iD series chargers, which make charging
super simple by automatically selecting the correct battery type
and amp rate when you plug in a Traxxas iD battery. (No iD battery?
You can still program the charger manually.) This year, the latest
“Live” model earned your votes. The new 100-watt box will juice up
NiMH and LiPo batteries including 4S packs, and it adds Bluetooth
compatibility, so you can monitor charge progress and data from
your iOS or Android device using the free EZ-Peak Live app. You can
even control up to four chargers at once—pretty rad.
