Traxxas was founded in 1986, and is the innovator of “ready to run” (RTR) radio-controlled models. Before the company popularized the concept, the radio-controlled hobby was built around kits that required assembly and painting, and did not include all the electronics required to operate them. Traxxas changed all that by offering professionally assembled models with the hobby-class performance of kits. Since then, “RTR” models have become the industry standard. Traxxas takes the concept further with “Ready-To-Race®,” and offers the fastest, most complete, highest-performance RTR models available.
