Officially Licensed Captain's Curse Body and Graphics
Traxxas' Monster Jam models fully capture the aggressive styling of their full-size counterparts, right down to the Captain's Curse high-energy graphics. And since it's Ready-To-Race, the body is trimmed, mounted, and decaled for you.
New Monster Jam Tires and Beadlock-Style Wheels
New tires developed specifically for the Monster Jam models emulate the "hand carved" look of the full-size treads, and are molded in a unique compound that hooks up for maximum acceleration and great grip on a wide variety of surfaces including dirt, grass, pavement, and rocks. New deep-dish wheels with bead-lock detailing complete the aggressive, authentic look.
Titan® 12-Turn 550 Modified Motor
Monster Jam models come with a powerful Titan 12T 550 modified motor with internal cooling fan. The Titan's over-sized armature (30% larger compared to 540-sized armatures) is equipped with 12-turns of pure copper wire for big torque and increased power-handling capabilities. Lower running temperatures are achieved with the integrated cooling fan. The Titan 12T requires very little maintenance and is designed for consistent torque and high speeds from run to run, without fading.
Beyond the specs, the Titan 12T is made for rock crushing torque, hardcore wheelie launches, explosive jumping, and just about any other 4-wheel fun that demands real horsepower.
Traxxas Power Cell Battery Included!
Captain's Curse includes a Power Cell Battery Pack to make sure you experience all the performance that's been engineered into your Traxxas model. Power Cell packs are optimized for free-flowing power and maximum punch with premium quality, low-resistance cells; flexible, silicone-jacketed 12-gauge wire; heavy-duty welded tabs; and Traxxas' high-output, gold plated, high-current connectors. Seven cells deliver 8.4 volts of motivation for maximum speed, and precision assembly with attractive, individually wrapped cells and clear overwrap complete the Traxxas Power Cell package.
XL-5 Waterproof Electronic Speed Control
Designed and engineered by Traxxas, the XL-5 Electronic Speed Control handles the elements while smoothly supplying power to the motor. This high-performance speed control is packed with impressive specifications that are normally only found on more expensive high-end replacement units. The XL-5 features a completely waterproof design, LiPo-Ready Low-Voltage Detection, three throttle profiles, Thermal Shutdown Protection, 4-8 cell compatibility, and built-in BEC. High frequency operation combined with ultra-low resistance make the XL-5 an efficient and ultra-smooth fully proportional speed control. An exclusive feature on the XL-5 is the patent pending Training Mode™. This profile reduces the overall power output of the XL-5 by 50% making it easier for young or new drivers to develop their control skills before unleashing full-power operation. The XL-5 is manufactured by Traxxas to ensure the highest level of quality and support. Low Voltage Detection is a new feature on Monster Jam replica models.

High-Torque Waterproof Digital Steering Servo
A monster truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance, and Traxxas delivers with the 2056 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 2056 provides 80 oz-in of steering muscle. That's twice the power of typical "standard" servos.
Waterproof Receiver Box
Traxxas' innovative receiver box is fully waterproof, yet it's easy to access the receiver maintenance. The exclusive patent-pending design holds a 4-channel micro receiver that saves weight and provides reliable, long-range R/C performance.
Four Channel Micro Receiver
A four channel Traxxas micro receiver gives you additional room to grow! The 4-channel micro receiver features two steering servo ports, eliminating the need for a Y-harness.
Securely Mounted Electronics
The ESC and watertight receiver box are screwed to the chassis for ultimate mounting security. There's no servo tape to loosen over time with dirt, heat, and collisions.
Revo®-Spec Torque-Control™ Slipper Clutch
Revo technology is utilized to manage the increased power from the Titan 12T motor. The Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction material and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent traction control. The semi-metallic friction material remains stable across a wide temperature range to provide smooth, linear engagement you can count on, run after run. Spur gears can be removed and replaced without altering the slipper adjustment.
Captain's Curse features white springs for realistic looks. Tough powder-coated finishes make sure the good looks last, while carefully selected spring rates deliver peak multi-terrain performance.
Included Optional Pinion Gear
Captain's Curse reaches their blistering 30+mph top speed on-road using the optional 23-tooth pinion gear (included) and supplied Power Cell 7-cell battery. Out of the box, the installed 19-tooth pinion gear is just right for all-around, wheelie-popping, off-road action.
Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks™
Traxxas' proven oil-filled Ultra Shocks utilize X-ring technology for a perfect seal and super-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. They can be renewed in minutes with our inexpensive rebuild kits.
Motor Mount with Cooling Channels
The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks. The molded motor plate now includes finned cooling channels where the motor mounts to the motor plate. The cooling channels work in conjunction with the internal Titan 12T motor fan to pull air through the motor for superior cooling.
Brushless Ready Magnum 272™ Transmission
Monster Jam fun requires a monster-tough drivetrain. The Magnum 272 transmission is assembled with all metal gear internals riding on ultra-smooth sealed ball bearings. Combined with the smooth 48-pitch gears, power is delivered quietly to the durable telescoping U-joint driveshafts. The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks.
Brushless Ready Planetary Gear Differential
The composite Traxxas planetary gear differential features a steel ring gear with a nylon gear housing for long life. It uses hardened steel internal gears for maximum strength during rigorous off-road bashing. This type of differential requires virtually no maintenance and its efficient design puts maximum tire-shredding torque to the wheels.
Fiber Composite Arms
Solid, durable camber links take the guess work out of set-up and are captured to keep you on the trail even when the going gets rough. Captured rod ends and one-piece camber links provide unmatched durability and they simply won't pop off.
Monster 4" Ground Clearance
With 4-inches of center ground clearance, Captain's Curse goes places other trucks can't! Traxxas Monster Jam models easily tackle real world obstacles such as tall grass, curbs, and rocks.
Telescoping Universal-Joint Driveshafts
Slider driveshafts are extremely durable, and they allow greater articulation for increased suspension travel. Universal joints on both ends of the shafts deliver smooth, chatter-free power delivery.
TQ Radio System
The included TQ radio system includes a high-power transmitter with a specially designed comfort grip, a precise high-torque steering servo, and a compact receiver. The perfectly balanced TQ transmitter features servo reversing, a low battery indicator, electronic trim control, and it is digitally proportional for precise steering and throttle control.
