LaTrax Rally: Valentino Rossi Edition

LaTrax Rally: Valentino Rossi Edition

There hasn’t been much news from LaTrax recently, however, this small-scale R/C brand has recently announced a special edition of their 1/18-scale Rally model. If you love slinging your radio-controlled cars through dirt and across pavement, take a look at the Valentino Rossi Edition LaTrax Rally.

Featuring a graphics package that’s similar to Rossi’s 1:1 rally car, it’s hard to deny the eye-catching nature of this scaled-down version. Under the body, the VR26 Rally features the same internals as the “classic” Latrax Rally. Black wheels help finish off the overall look of this car.

Waterproof electronics, a brushed, 370-size motor, a 6V, NiMh battery, and a 2.4GHz radio system area all at the core of this small-scale R/C car. I still have good memories of my Rally and this new-look model has given me the itch to pick up another one.
