Unbelievable RC

Once, the projects of Ultimate Traxxas were all agents of good. First there was the underdog Ultimate Rustler that ultimately became a champion. Then the Ultimate Stampede, affordable, true to its pure Traxxas roots, then the nitro-slaying Spyder, and the valiant Valkyrie. In early 2003, however, a dark haze descended upon us with a firey underglow, laying extended seige to our hearts and minds. More than four years later, the haze lifted, and Daemonsbane was revealed in all of its blood-red glory.

Where the Ultimate Rustler was light, efficient, and finesseful, Daemonsbane is a beast that thrives off shameless excess. Loaded with hand-made and hard-to-find components, Daemonsbane is one of the most exclusive and heavily customized Rustlers ever made.
