Default Major kudos to Traxxas!

Was browsing the web tonight and decided to visit Traxxas website for anything new and I came across this. Totally awesome of Traxxas to do something that probably looks childish to many people but deep down, represents something much much bigger, taking care of our brave soldiers, saying thank you and letting them have some fun and blow off steam. Makes me proud to own a Slash 4x4 Ultimate!

Even if you dislike Traxxas products, you have to applaud them for doing this for out troops.

I have an E Revo, and have thought highly of Traxxas. This reinforces that 10x!

now, on the surface it looks like something really great they did


but stop and think about it, they brought some no-name corr drivers and a few toys to the desert. How many of the troops do you think follow corr racing and/or are RC enthusiasts?

traxxas did this to make them look like good guys and to sell RC's as their motivation, not to actually help the troops

you guys need to think critically about things before just gushing about how great a company is.

little bit of both I think. Self serving? Sure. Nice thing to do as well? Absolutely.

HOW STUPID IS THIS? They brought rc cars so they can have fun. WHO cares about big name corr drivers and pro rc racers. There no bodies, just another person on the streets with a cool job. TRAXXAS took cars to OUR troops so they could have fun in a stressful environment. THINK about it.....

So they killed two birds with one stone. Traxxas has been the driving force in repopularizing this hobby and for that I'm greatful. Is the glass half full or half empty? Depends on your point of view I suppose.
