Video: RC Off-Road 4×4 Drives On Water

Off-roading is always fun when you are in the vehicle, but it can be even better when you are in control outside of the vehicle. Traxxas has shared a video of their Slash 4X4 hydroplaning on water.

Traxxas has grown to become the number-1 selling name inReady-To-Run (RTR) nitro and electric models for the last 4 years running. No one has done more than Traxxas to advance the RTR category with innovative thinking and fun designs that make it easy for anyone to get started in the great R/C hobby.

The Slash 4X4 not only drives on the water but it goes off a jump onto a piece of wood and then continues to drive across the pond. What the RC truck is able to do in itself is amazing, but the fact that the wood was placed correctly, the truck landed on all fours, and then is able to keep momentum up is purely entertaining.

The video does cut of right before the Traxxas truck makes it to the other side so there is no clear evidence on whether or not it truly makes it all the way. Either way the fact that it was able to accomplish everything that it did makes it something we keep watching over and over again.
