Traxxas is a RC vehicle manufacturer that is based in Plano, Texas, USA. The company was founded in 1986 based on the idea of bringing the Ready-to-Run "kit" to the RC car and truck market place.
From the company website:
Traxxas was started in 1986 with an idea for what was at that time an entirely new concept for a fully assembled, hobby-class R/C car. This new car would have all the same benefits of a hobby-class kit such as replaceable parts, hop-ups, and a high-quality component radio system, however it would be fully assembled with a colorful body, right out of the box. Traxxas coined the term "Ready-To-Run" (RTR) to describe this new class. Since a fully assembled, ready-to-run car would appeal to the entry-level beginner, a toll-free customer support line was set up from day one to service an entirely new category of hobby consumer. At first, acceptance of the RTR concept was slow because traditional R/C kits had always been unassembled. Once people realized that a Traxxas RTR had the same performance and quality as the traditional R/C kits, only that they didn't have to build it, the ready-to-run Cat was a runaway hit! A kit version would still be offered for those who still wanted to have the building experience.
Most of the company's products are marketed under the Traxxas brand. Since 1986 that brand has grown from a single car kit into a widely recognized RC brand world-wide. With RC vehicle kits covering electric cars, nitro cars, boats, and their latest, helicopters, the company continues to grow.
With kits like the scale Traxxas Funny Car and the ultra-fast, ultra-high-tech, 100mph XO-1 -- both of which were firsts for the RC industry -- the company embraces innovation. With their latest foray into the RC heli category, the RC community continues to anticipate great things from Traxxas.
