Traxxas Slash 4WD Electric Racing Truck
RC cars used to be simple point and shoot toys. They were cheap, fun, and would inevitably be broken while trying to jump your couch. Today’s RC cars are definitely not the ones of old. They have working suspensions, four-wheel drive, and infinitely more customizable parts. They are, in all respects, small cars. Traxxas is one of the best in the business and the Slash is super cool. It’s not a full-blown gas powered RC car, but rather an easier to maintain electric version. But don’t think that it isn’t fast or agile, it is. The only downside to these new RC cars, they’re expensive and the Traxxas Slash will set you back $199.95.
So there you have it, for those that need help finding the perfect gift for the budding gear head in your family, these are some of the best last minute gifts you can find.
