Traxxas Launches Official F-150 SVT Raptor R/C Replica
Get down and dirty with Ford's baddest F-150, the SVT Raptor, without the 40K price tag!
Like many of you, when we see an SVT Raptor on the road we sprain our necks trying to get a better look at this monster of a truck. Factory Fox Racing shocks, modified suspension, wider body, and those huge BFG tires aren't just for looks. The SVT Raptor has competed succesfully in many off-road and desert races with success. It's one tough truck. But for those of us on a mac and cheese budget the price tag is a little hard to swallow.
Fear not though, as our radio control friends at Traxxas have expanded their officially Ford licensed vehicle lineup (you might remember our blogs on the Boss 302 Mustang, Fiesta, and Ken Block Gymkhana vehicles). Traxxas has given us fellow Ford gearheads something to really have fun with in their new SVT Raptor replica.
Beginning with their award winning Slash 2WD short course chassis, Traxxas has topped it with a licensed SVT Raptor body that is just perfect in detail, then bolted up a set of BFG Mud Terrains just like the real truck. Their new F-150 SVT Raptor replica, PN 5806, will be launching in mid-October and will be available in all of the current Raptor colors, including blue, black, white, and red!
