New from Traxxas Underground:
Launching an RC truck 50 feet into the air is pretty extreme, but the Traxxas Underground crew likes to hang it out over the ragged edge. What if there were a way to drive off after even the wildest jumps? The Underground crew thinks they have found a solution. Watch the video below and see for yourself.
Undeterred by some early setbacks, the Underground crew finally nailed the perfect landing. Remotely-deployed resistance parachutes may not be the most practical protection devices, but we can't argue their effectiveness. Given the speed and power of Traxxas' brushless models, this maybe something to explore further. While we still advocate landing wheels-down, it’s nice to have a backup plan when a stunt goes epically wrong.
