The Traxxas Sledge 6S's price point will give you a run for your money


Traxxas has debuted its new RC monster truck, Sledge 6S, claiming it’s “basically bombproof”, so what’s the price of this gnarly vehicle?

Radio control model manufacturer Traxxas hasn’t skimped on its latest release. Dubbed the Sledge 6S, the basher truggy has been advertised as reaching speeds of more than 70mph (112.7kmh) so, yes, you can race your friend who’s in an actual car.

The Texas-based company’s previous release was just three months ago, with the X-Maxx, and Traxxas shows no sign of slowing the expansion of its extensive collection.

The company has hyped the Sledge as its best, most powerful and fulfilling Traxxas vehicle to date, given the impressive specifications. So let’s take a look what the new RC car has to offer.

Checking out the Traxxas Sledge RC truck

Presented in a thrilling promo video that could give Lamborghini commercials a run for their money, the Sledge 6S RC truck can reach more than 70mph with a LiPo battery offering over 22 volts, meaning more power for hard-charging acceleration and increased mid-range punch.

One of the star features is the aluminium plate that forms the strong chassis. Coupled with the premium sledgehammer tyres, this monster truck is on its way to becoming a fan-favourite. An added bonus is the clipless body, making removal, cleaning and customisation easy.

Traxxas boldly claims the “bigger gears and more steel” makes the Sledge 6S “basically bombproof”, so let us know if you put that claim to the test!

Priced at $799.99, the Traxxas Sledge 6S can be bought at hobby stores nationwide; all you need to do is enter your postal code in the official dealer locator.

They can be pre-ordered now and will be released on 31 March 2022.

Since its announcement, fans have been divided about the model over on Instagram. While some are enthusiastic to get their hands on the extreme RC truck, others are begging for a new design as they believe it looks too similar to a Kraton.

One user commented: “I am seriously impressed by your cars and trucks but, c’mon Traxxas, we need something new, maybe like a new nitro.”

Another fan defended the product, stating that although the body might look like a Kraton, the chassis is completely new.

What do you think of the new truggy?
