Precision 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. To customize the Nitro Sport's controls, the transmitter's factory servo directions can be easily reversed through the simple programming system.
Bold New Styling
With its custom look, no one would ever guess the Nitro Sport is Traxxas' most affordable nitro truck. The aggressive body design and cutting-edge graphics scream power and performance, but there's no painting, trimming or mounting required. Nitro Sport arrives 100% Ready-To-Race®. For unmatched strength, the rear wing mounts to the body using countersunk aluminum hardware.
Alias™ 2.8" Pre-Glued Tires with Foam Inserts
Nitro Sport is equipped with impressive 2.8" Twin-Spoke™ mirror-chrome wheels, Alias step-pin rear tires and Alias ribbed tires up front. The Twin-Spoke wheels feature a lightweight horizontal bead that holds the tire to the rim even under extreme rpm. Performance-designed foam inserts are standard and all tires come pre-glued from the factory to get you rolling right out of the box.
TRX® Pro.15 Engine
The TRX Pro.15, known for easy tuning, smooth idle, and reliable running, features true ABC (Aluminum piston, Brass sleeve with Chrome plating) construction, a heavy-duty connecting rod, and smooth ball bearings. EZ-Start® electric starting brings the engine to life quickly and safely at the touch of a button, and the TRX Pro .15's wide and predictable tuning latitude make it the perfect engine for the first-time nitro enthusiast. The TRX Pro.15 also gives you the peace-of-mind of the Traxxas Lifetime Engine Replacement Plan, and down the road, affordably upgrades to the powerful racing performance of the TRX 2.5R Racing Engine.
The TRX Pro.15 carburetor features a larger 6mm intake bore for better breathing. Double O-ring sealing on both the low and high speed needle adjustments helps to eliminate air leaks. The carburetor barrel has a dust cap for extra protection against dirt.
The TRX Pro.15's durable aluminum piston features an oil groove in the top. The oil groove promotes better sealing and compression. It also increases the lubrication between the cylinder sleeve and the piston, reducing wear and heat.
The special channeled-beam connecting rod offers greater strength and long-lasting performance. The channeled design has an extra benefit of directing the oil flow down to the crankshaft bushing.
The TRX Pro.15 uses precision steel ball bearings for high performance, high-RPM durability. The ball bearings are sealed to keep dirt out, and they reduce friction for ultra-responsive performance.
EZ-Start® Electric Starting System
The EZ-Start system offers the convenience of one-handed operation and complete on-board, push-button electric starting. The Traxxas EZ-Start lights your glow plug and starts your engine quickly and smoothly at the push of a button. Traxxas' exclusive Smart Start® technology monitors critical starting functions, automatically sensing and diagnosing potential problems for trouble free engine starting every time! LEDs provide real-time status, even alerting you when a glow plug has failed.
Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Nitro Sport includes a complete set of efficient rubber-sealed ball bearings at all four corners, in addition to the ball bearing transmission, for smooth, long-lasting and precise driving. In dirt and nitro environments, rubber-sealed ball bearings provide the ultimate protection.
Fiber-Composite / 6061-T6 Aluminum Chassis
The fiber-composite upper chassis deck stabilizes the fuel tank and ties in to the 6061-T6 lower aluminum chassis. The dual-plane design decreases chassis flex allowing the suspension to effectively soak up the bumps. The blue-anodized aluminum chassis acts like a heat sink to draw additional heat away from the engine, and features countersunk screw holes to prevent speed-robbing drag.
High-Torque Steering Servo
A high-speed stadium truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance. An included Traxxas high-torque steering servo comes standard for enhanced steering authority and reliability.
Adjustable Slipper Clutch
The slipper clutch on the Nitro Sport is fully adjustable to control the power output to the rear wheels for increased traction control on a wide variety of surfaces. It also protects the transmission during high-impact jump landings.
Planetary Gear Differential
Nitro Sport's gear differential is the best choice for drivers who want performance and fun without maintenance and adjustment headaches. The hardened-steel gears of the planetary gear design are built to last. They require no adjustment and are virtually maintenance free.
Magnum 281™ Transmission
The Nitro Magnum 281 transmission is built Nitro Tough™ with 32 pitch gears, metal top gear, and smooth-running, long-lasting precision ball bearings. This proven, track-tested, three-gear design is built for high performance driving applications.
Durable slider driveshafts transfer the power from the transmission to the rear wheels, and they allow greater articulation for increased suspension travel. Smooth-turning universal joints on both ends of the driveshaft minimize wear and maximize efficiency.
Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks™
Traxxas Nitro Sport's oil-filled Ultra Shocks feature gray shock bodies, white powder coated springs, and are fully tunable for race-inspired performance. The spring pre-load is adjustable via precise clip-on spacers making it easy to know that each shock is adjusted to the same spec. Rubber pressure bladders prevent air pockets and foaming common with bladderless designs. Double o-ring seals in the shock body prevent leaking.
To suit any driving style and environment the Nitro Sport is fully adjustable from the turnbuckles to the numerous shock mounting positions. The rear anti-squat is also adjustable using the optional anti-squat wedges (part #1934).
