The 4-Tec's Titan 12T 550 modified motor pumps out incredible mod-motor power with virtually maintenance-free operation and long-lasting performance. The Titan's integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through the motor to keep temperatures down. A cooler running motor equates to faster speeds, more time behind the wheel, and extended motor life. The XL-5 Electronic Speed Control offers high current handling, EZ-Set one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control. Three drive profiles, low voltage detection, thermal shutdown protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance are all features you might expect to only be available on an expensive replacement ESC. As today's batteries store more and more energy inside their cells, traditional battery connectors could no longer keep up. The included patented Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for unrestricted current flow.
High Performance Modular Chassis
The all-new high-tech 4-Tec 2.0 chassis keeps weight positioned as low as possible for a crisp, responsive feel. Three interlocking modules provide unprecedented rigidity and tight tolerances. Not only is the chassis stiffer and more responsive, it’s easy to disassemble.
Adjustable Body Mounts
Traxxas-exclusive adjustable body mounts allow easy installation of popular 200mm bodies. Body posts may be shifted forward and backward and side to side to accommodate most pre-drilled mounting holes. A set of fixed body mounts also comes with the vehicle.
Lengthen or shorten the wheelbase for the perfect body fit. With slight modification, rear suspension arms can be moved 3mm in either direction.
A completely smooth undertray cuts through the air with reduced aerodynamic drag. The smooth chassis resists snags on uneven pavement and expansion joints. The angled front bumper keeps the chassis’ stance low, while still allowing it to pass over bumps and up driveways with ease.
Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks
4-Tec 2.0 rides on oil-filled Ultra Shocks utilizing X-ring technology for a perfect seal and silky-smooth performance. They are fully tunable with a wide range of oils, springs, and pistons. Features include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and spring clips to precisely change the ride height and spring pre-load. Redesigned shock caps feature hollow balls for better articulation durability.
Adjustable Battery Hold Down
A quick-release, dual-height battery mount accommodates a wide range of batteries including long format NiMH and LiPo battery packs.
Traxxas High-Current Connectors
Designed to handle high-current applications and funnel maximum power to the electronics, the Traxxas iD High-Current Connector also allows the battery to communicate with optional iD-equipped chargers (sold separately). Traxxas iD chargers automatically configure and optimize the charger settings for a perfect charge every time. Traxxas iD chargers provide the quickest, safest charge for your battery so you can unleash the maximum power and runtime for your Traxxas vehicle.
Molded Wire Retainer
A simple wire clip would look out of place on this futuristic high tech chassis. Traxxas engineers designed a sleek molded wire retainer to keep motor wires secured safely out of the way.
Precise 2.4GHz Control
With the TQ 2.4GHz radio system, you just switch on and drive. There are no channels or frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. The TQ's ergonomic design is comfortable for all-day driving, and its sleek lines are enhanced by an internal antenna that is impervious to damage.
Waterproof Receiver Box
Real world driving requires dealing with the elements. The Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 comes fully protected with a patented waterproof receiver box. The innovative receiver box keeps the micro receiver dry, even in the worst weather.
Three Channel Micro Receiver
A three channel Traxxas micro receiver gives you additional room to grow! The 3-channel micro receiver features two steering servo ports, eliminating the need for a Y-harness.
Waterproof Steering Servo
A high-performance chassis needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance and Traxxas delivers with the 2075 high-torque servo. This waterproof steering servo uses O-ring seals to keep the fun going when things get wet. Waterproof for all-weather action, the 2075 provides 125 oz-in of steering muscle.
Fixed Gear Mesh System
Setting the perfect gear mesh can be a complicated and arduous process. The Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 eliminates the hassle with its innovative fixed positioning system. Use the convenient chart included in the user manual to select the proper hold for your pinion gear.
Proven Sealed Differentials
The 4-Tec 2.0 chassis features the same sealed, beveled-gear differentials in the front and rear as the ultra-rugged Slash 4X4. Tune the performance by varying the viscosity of the fluid inside.
One-piece steel driveshafts save weight and send power directly to the wheels for lightning quick response times. Extended drive cups allow for maximum articulation and ultimate durability.
A lightweight aluminum driveshaft distributes power to all four wheels and reduces rotational mass for faster acceleration off the line. There are no dogbones to wear and no drive cups to wobble. The shaft runs perfectly straight and with superior rigidity and durability.
High Performance Suspension Adjustments
A high angle steering option allows your vehicle to rotate further for epic drifting around corners. The high tech suspension also features bosses molded into the arms to adjust droop. Suspension droop is the amount of downward travel on the wheels. Droop adjustment allows the 4-Tec 2.0 to be tuned for better cornering stability.
New Dual-Bellcrank Steering System
Dual steering bellcranks with optimized geometry virtually eliminate bump steer to increase stability in the corners. An integrated servo saver mounts securely to the servo to protect the gears from crash damage without compromising steering precision.
Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Precise rubber-sealed bearings offer the ultimate in super low-friction performance and maximum protection in dirty environments.
Pro-quality, high-grade, metric hex-drive hardware is used throughout for extra strength, easy maintenance and quick repair. The black-oxide rust-resistant finish provides a high tech look and feel.
Dual Rear Camber Link Mounts
The rear suspension features dual mounting points for the camber links to accommodate different bodies. Use the traditional high mount for standard bodies or the low-profile mount for sleek bodies like the Ford GT.
Replica Tires and Wheels
Sticky street tires wrap around gorgeous replica wheels with lug nut details (patents pending). The replica brake discs incorporate standard 12mm wheel hexes and feature red brake calipers. The brake calipers even switch from leading to trailing orientation, allowing you to keep an authentic scale look for the body of your choice.
Some vehicles claim to be "brushless compatible," but neglect to mention the long list of parts required to handle the extra power. At Traxxas, vehicles are built tough enough to be brushless-ready out of the box. The 4-Tec 2.0 chassis allows the massive VXL-3s power system to drop right in with minimal modifications. Overkill? Perhaps, but we can't resist going 70+mph. We don't think you'll resist either, so the drivetrain is built to handle the horsepower and speed.
100% Fully Assembled
The Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 rolls out of the box pre-assembled with a factory-adjusted TQ 2.4GHz radio, XL-5 ESC, Titan 12-Turn 550 modified motor, and detailed instructions.
