Ok, so you can’t afford a real Landrover Defender. Don’t sweat it. You can still get your off-roading thrills with the new Traxxas RC Land Rover Defender ($433). The Traxxas is a 1/10 scale highly detailed version of the real thing that includes functional accessories and even a spare tire. This bad boy will handle whatever you can throw at it. Built for extreme off-roading it features innovative portal axles that deliver maximum ground clearance. While the remote-locking front and rear differentials and high/low range transmission allow you to enjoy outdoor trails and technical rock climbing. Additional features include options for XL-5 HV ESC and 21T Titan 550 motors. Accepts 6 or 7-cell NiMH or 2 or 3-cell LiPo batteries (sold separately). Because the electronics are waterproof you can drive it in the worst conditions. Great gift for the big kid in your life.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
