Traxxas Ford Mustang Boss 302 Review – Electric Beast

Welcome to the Traxxas Ford Mustang Boss 302 Review. Here you can check out the all new RTR Electric Boss 302 Ford Mustang.

See pictures, videos, learn about the different upgrades, parts, and pro’s/con’s.

The Traxxas Boss 302 is fully designed and inspired by.. you guessed it the actual real size Ford Mustang. It is made by one of the most popular rc car manufacturers in the world today – Traxxas.

It has an array of features and fun things that any rc enthusiast would be interested in.



traxxas ford mustang boss 302

First off, the Traxass Boss 302 is 1/16 scale – this means it’s 1/16 the size of the actual real Ford Mustang. But don’t let that small size full you, the Traxxas Ford Mustang Boss 302 is an electric beast that goes very fast.

There are two different models for the Traxxas Boss 302 RC car. Basically Traxxas offers two electric motors…

  • The Titan 550 Brushless electric motor.
  • Or the Velineon 380 Brushless electric motor.

Traxxas says the Velineon electric motor is capable of 30 + mph right out of the box – very impressive. They also assure you, with a couple of optional upgrades you can reach speeds over 50 mph! Now that’s pretty crazy for a small electric rc car.

One of the cool things about the Traxxas Ford Mustang is that it’s 4WD or 4×4. In other words you get 4 wheel drive which helps for better overall control and maneuvering. If you’re interested in 4×4 check out RC Monster trucks.

traxxas ford mustang boss 302You know you’re buying quality when the Traxxas Boss 302’s chassis and suspension is modeled after the award winning Traxxas Revo and Traxxas E Revo.

You also get the new 2.4 GHz radio controller and waterproof internals. Check out the rest of the features near the end of the page.

(Note: check out how to clean and maintain your brushless motor if you buy the Boss 302).

Looks Super Cool!

One thing that strikes you right away about the Traxxas Mustang Boss 302 is how really good it looks.

Traxxas did a bang up job on the decals, paint and overall rc car body. The rc car tires look sick with really cool looking rims, this is great work here folks… looks like the real thing!

Price point $$$

The Traxxas Ford Mustang Boss 302 is more expensive then you’d think it would be because of it’s size. But just like we said, just because it’s small doesn’t mean it ain’t powerful – remember most of what you’re paying for is the electric motor.

Depending where you buy rc cars from online you can get the Traxxas Boss 302 anywhere from $200 to $300 bucks– remember there was two models, hence the large price gap.

It’s more for the velineon traxxas boss model. You can find these on online rc hobby shops.

Boss 302 RC Car Bodies

There are even some places online where you can buy clear body shells and make or paint your own design on them, so that’s another cool option if you’re the creative type.


  • Very fast – 30 + mph out of the box
  • Couple upgrades and you can go 50 + Mph!!!

Rating & Recommendation

traxxas ford mustang boss 302

I give the Traxxas Ford Mustang Boss 302 a good 4.5 out of 5.0.  Although not as fast as most nitro rc cars it’s super fast for a 1/16 scale electric remote control car. It looks like the real thing and is small and compact and great for rc drifting.

This electric ready to run rc car is meant for beginners or intermediates – it’s easy to learn on electric rc cars because they don’t require crazy maintenance. If you’re on the fence I say go for it, or you can check out something similar such as the Traxxas Rally.

It’s only when you get better and more confident that you upgrade to rc nitro cars and even start learning how to tune a nitro engine.
