Traxxas F-150 Raptor SVT

We are no strangers to Traxxas products around the office.  In fact, we think they are our unofficial sponsor (at least in our minds…).  So when Traxxas puts something new out, we get excited.  Their latest entry isn’t exactly “new”, but it is awesome.  They have reworked their famous 2wd Slash to resemble the Ford F-150 Raptor SVT.  The real Raptor is amazing, and so is this 1/10th version of it.

  • Officially licensed Ford F-150 SVT Raptor body and graphics
  • Top speeds in excess of 30mph using the included optional 23-tooth pinion gear
