Lightbulb Is the Traxxas 7407 1/10 better than Redcat Tornado EPX PRO Buggy

I recently write an article on my website about the best RC cars out there, I found very hard to decide which is better between the Traxxas 7407 Redcat Tornado EPX PRO.

Does anyone here have any experience with either of these vehicles? I think the Traxxas is better but, I would like to have other opinions from you guys.

Thanks

Welcome to RCU.

I never really like number designations for RCs. I couldn't even tell you which Traxxas model the 7407 is. I'm sure most people don't know, unless one is a Traxxas die-hard. It's too much work for a person to search on the www. Anyway...I had to get out .

I'll be honest, I think the Traxxas Rally is one ugly? 2013 "Car Of The Year" piece of RC goodness . It's just something about the body/wheel combo that turns me off. Sorry Traxxas. Good news...I think it's discontinued . Better great good news...the Traxxas Ford Fiesta ST Rally is coming out to replace the first generation Rally . Now that's one nice looking lid.

Hands down, Traxxas gets my vote. If price is strictly an issue, then Redcat/Exceed brand my be right for you. Just be sure to do a little research on any RC you are thinking about purchasing. Plenty of video reviews all over the www for a person to look at, and help make the decision easier. All RCs will break/fail eventually and having parts support should always be a concern.

Oh, and I have no first hand experience with either platforms .

Get out there and throw some dirt!

Not really sure who wrote that article but it was clearly someone with no experience with the vehicles they are recommending. They should pull that artical as it's giving people bad information. The Traxxas 7407 is the 1/10 scale rally which is a vastly superior car in every sense of the word. Long story short is there are few hobby grade cars on the market today that are worse than Redcat Tornado.

I agree that the traxxas is probably better made. But how can you say that a rally car is better or worst than a buggy? I mean, they are a bit different... And I think the rally is based off the slash which isn't a buggy either...

IDK both are 4 wheel offroad rc cars, i dont think the body style or wheels makes a massive difference, for example the HSP/Redcat 1/10 touring car has the same basic chassis as the buggy, sct and monstertruck and the traxxas rally is basically a slash LCG 4x4

sure the traxxas chassis never came out as a buggy, but there are lots of examples out there of custom jobs, i bet is traxxas were to make a buggy they would use the LCG chassis love this chap did
