5 Fastest Traxxas RC Car Models

4th Oct 2021

RC racing has been around for decades. In that time, RC cars have become increasingly more sophisticated, and faster than ever.

One of the most popular brands in the world, Traxxas offers some of the fastest remote control cars, trucks, buggies, and truggies on the market. Better still, these high-performance RC models boast exceptional handling, which makes them suitable for RC enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels.

Traxxas RC cars typically have a low center of gravity, making them less likely to tip over. That, combined with the brand’s proprietary Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) system, means that their vehicles can dominate on any terrain over which you might be racing.

Many RC racers will only consider the fastest models. For them, these five Traxxas RCs will not disappoint.
