Ultimate Traxxas Trophy Case

The vehicles of UltimateTraxxas.com are more than just pretty picture-posers -- there's not a "shelf queen" in the fleet. These proud cars & trucks get out there on the track and rub fenders with the Losi's, Associated's and other main-stream racing machines and frequently bring home some shiny memorabilia...

1) Ultimate Rustler

My first hobby-level R/C, the truck that started the Ultimate Traxxas phenomenon, has reeled in:

  • 3rd place, Delta R/C anniversary Dash for Cash 2003, 2WD stock (buggy & truck combined)
  • 3rd place, DudeMann Dirt Oval Trophy Dash 2002, Stock Truck
  • 1st place, 2WD Stock (buggy & truck combined), 2002 Off-Road Racing Series
  • 5th place, Stock Truck, 2001 Duel Under Diablo
  • 3rd place, Novice, 2000 Off-Road Racing Series (running my first 4 races ever)
  • 7x 1st place, Stock Truck/2WD Stock
  • 4x 2nd place, Stock Truck/2WD Stock
  • 7x 3rd place, Stock Truck/2WD Stock
2) Ultimate Stampede

The Ultimate Stampede was one of the first four monster trucks to race at Delta R/C and had great success battling against T-Maxxes and an occasional mod. Clod or other 'Pede:

  • 3rd place, Monster Truck, 2001 Off-Road Racing Series (shared w/ the Ultimate E-Maxx: Spyder)
  • 2x 1st place, Monster Truck
  • 5x 2nd place, Monster Truck
  • 1x 3rd place, Monster Truck
3) Ultimate E-Maxx: Spyder

The Spyder had a very rocky road in its early days on the racing circuit as it was never brought to the track with a tested, proven setup -- every time hitting the dirt was an experiment as the real race was to innovate as fast as possible. Nevertheless, she has brought home some goodies:

  • 3rd place, Monster Truck, 2001 Off-Road Racing Series (shared w/ the Ultimate Stampede)
  • 3rd place, Monster Truck, 2001 Duel Under Diablo (running a 30-minute main, 21 minutes into which the right front lower a-arm snapped off)
  • 1x 1st place, Monster Truck
  • 2x 2nd place, Monster Truck
  • 1x 3rd place, Monster Truck
4) J-SPECs

There once was a time when all of the J-SPEC cars were my own. Someone would rent one and I would run another, and they would complain that I had taken the faster car. So I'd switch cars with them and still whoop 'em. Today the class has grown to the point where less than 1/2 of the cars on the track most weekends are my own.

  • 1st place, 2002-03 Indoor Racing Series, Delta R/C
  • 1st place, usually
  • 2nd place, sometimes
  • 3rd place, rarely
5) Ultimate 4-Tec

Well, the 4-Tec has only been on the track twice, in nearly stock form. Its first time out, though, it got 3rd place out of either 5 or 6 cars, not a bad start:

  • 1x 3rd place, 4WD Stock Sedan
6) Ultimate What The? Phase II

What The? Yes, that thing actually raced, believe it or not. It ran in 4WD Stock Sedan class, and got 4th place out of 6 cars, running some decent matched 2000mah cells and a P2K that had been discarded by the Ultimate Rustler. Go figure.

  • 1x 4th place, 4WD Stock Sedan
