Traxxas Spartan

Traxxas Spartan

This is one radio-control toy that doesn't disappoint: Out of the box, the 36-inch-long boat creates a lake-rippling wake at speeds up to 50 mph. It's almost as good as the real thing. Even better, add the TQi docking base, and link it to your iPhone for an extra $70. When you download the Traxxas Link app, you can find out more information about your Spartan, including its speed out on the lake.
