With factory installed telemetry sensors, Traxxas Link collects and records real-time telemetry data as you drive. The Traxxas Link dashboard comes to life showing you speed, battery voltage, RPM, and temperature. The application automatically detects and recognizes Traxxas Link sensors for easy set up and configuration. The dashboard is fully customizable with either dial or digital readout gauges. Up to nine gauges can be displayed at once. Set threshold warnings and log maximums, minimums, or averages. Use the recording function to document your dashboard view, with sound, so that you can keep your eyes on your driving and not miss a single apex. If you forget to record, simply touch Instant Replay anytime to capture the previous minute of fun and unexpected triumphs. The recordings can be named, saved, and shared with others.
Intuitive iPhone and iPod touch Interface
Traxxas Link makes it easy to learn, understand, and access the powerful tuning options built into every Traxxas TQi radio system. Control your Drive Effects settings such as steering and throttle sensitivity; steering percentage; braking strength; and throttle trim by simply touching and dragging the sliders on the screen, or enabling the Multi-Function knob on the transmitter. Everything happens live, on-the-fly, giving you instant feedback on your changes.
5-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security
The TQi 2.4GHz micro receiver fits easily into any vehicle, and features dual channel-1 outputs for easy installation in vehicles with dual steering servos—no Y-harness necessary! The integrated LINK button makes it fast and easy to bind the receiver, and the two-color LED indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and convenience. Traxxas Link Model Memory allows the receiver to recognize up to thirty TQi 2.4Ghz Traxxas Link enabled transmitters—just switch on and drive. In the event of signal loss due to an accidental switch-off or depleted batteries, the receiver will automatically return the throttle to neutral and hold the last commanded steering position. The Fail Safe programming is built-in and does not need to be set or activated. Three telemetry ports are incorporated in the 5-channel receiver to allow real-time data to be transmitted from your Traxxas model to the TQi transmitter.
TRX® 3.3 Racing Engine
The TRX 3.3 produces an extreme 60% more peak horsepower compared to the TRX 2.5! The overall power under the curve is nearly 50% greater to deliver the smooth, linear power output TRX® engines are famous for. The TRX 3.3 Racing Engine is equipped with EZ-Start® push-button electric starting and simple, reliable tuning from the two-needle composite slide carburetor. The easy-revving broad powerband pushes Nitro 4-Tec™ 3.3 well beyond 70mph! Plus it’s backed by the support and reliability you expect from Traxxas including the Exclusive Lifetime Engine Replacement Plan.
EZ-Start® Electric Starting
Only the Traxxas EZ-Start offers the pure convenience of true 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 realtime status, even alerting you when a glow plug has failed.
Resonator™ Blue-Anodized Aluminum Tuned Pipe
The Traxxas Resonator aluminum tuned pipe is precision-engineered to maximize power output from the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine. The silicone stinger cover provides extra safety. Improved top-end power, enhanced bottom-end punch and smooth, linear power are the combined result of the laser-etched Resonator tuned pipe and the extreme horsepower of the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine.
New Gray Components
Fresh, high-contrast gray chassis components cover the upper deck of the chassis and connect to the 6061 T6 blue-anodized aluminum chassis. The dual-plane chassis layout makes for a solid platform that is able to stand up to sweltering speeds.
Wide Rear Belt and Large Pulleys
A wide rear belt was designed to handle the massive power output from the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine. And, to compensate for the increased power, oversized pulleys were implemented to push Nitro 4-Tec 3.3 beyond the 70mph mark.
Oil-filled Ultra Shocks™
Oil-filled Ultra Shocks with new gray shock bodies powder-coated white springs deliver silky-smooth performance and precise damping control with racing-style clip-on pre-load spring spacers. High-tech and long-lasting X-ring seals provide superior sealing and reduced friction.
Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Efficient rubber-sealed ball bearings throughout ensure smooth, long-lasting and precise performance. They provide ultimate protection to minimize maintenance in high-speed, nitro environments.
Gear Differentials with Ball Bearings
Bearing supported differentials are supported by the housings, not the output shafts, eliminating destruction of the internal differential components caused by belt tension.
Adjustable Steel Turnbuckles
Steel turnbuckles with durable captured rod ends allow the adjustment of toe-in and camber. Nitro 4-Tec’s adjustability provides a wide-range of setup options to suit virtually any on-road condition.
High-Impact Bumper w/Foam Attachments
Designed specifically to protect the front end of the Nitro 4-Tec 3.3 this bumper can handle a tremendous amount of abuse. To add to the protection, a rough foam attachment is included.
Center-Mounted Fuel Tank
The centrally mounted fuel tank is secured low in the center of the chassis so that the car’s handling is not affected as the fuel level changes. The central location provides excellent balance and an extremely low center of gravity.
