The new Ford GT captured the world’s attention with its unique, aerodynamically optimized shape, its extraordinarily powerful 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine, and a historic return after 50 years to win the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans. Innovation abounds and everything about the Ford GT is designed to deliver pure performance.
Traxxas has captured the Ford GT in a stunning 1/10 scale replica that is faithful to the beautiful and functional styling of the incredible flying buttress design. Every detail is there including the taillights and exhaust tips. Built to be driven, this Ford GT replica rests on the Traxxas 4-Tec™ 2.0 chassis that’s all-new from the ground up.
Traxxas captures the stunning beauty of the Ford GT with this fully licensed replica body. The sleek GT body is fully detailed with injection molded exhaust tips, tail lights, and features the signature buttresses. Specialized molding techniques (patent pending) were developed to capture the depth and detail of Ford’s original design. The Traxxas Ford GT looks just as good as it drives.
Sticky street tires feature an aggressive tread pattern and 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 to give your ride that fully authentic look.
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 and durability.
The 4-Tec 2.0 features a high angle steering option with separate mounting holes in the linkages. With minor modifications, high angle steering allows your Traxxas Ford GT 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 stability in the corners.
Conventional servo savers earned a reputation for sloppy steering in on-road cars. 4-Tec 2.0 changes all that with its integrated servo saver. The servo saver secures directly to provide precise and responsive handling in all situations. An integrated collar allows the spring tension to be adjusted for personalized settings or track conditions.
Real world driving requires dealing with the elements. The Traxxas Ford GT comes fully protected with a patented waterproof receiver box. The innovative receiver box keeps the micro receiver dry, even in the worst weather.
A high-performance car 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.
A simple wire clip would look out of place with this futuristic high tech chassis. Traxxas engineers designed a trick molded wire retainer to keep wiring secured safely out of the way.
Setting the perfect gear mesh can be a complicated and arduous process. The Traxxas Ford GT eliminates the hassle with its innovative fixed positioning system. Use the convenient chart included in the user manual to select the proper hole for your pinion gear.
The Traxxas Ford GT and included battery are equipped with the patented Traxxas iD High-Current Connector. Designed to handle high-current applications and funnel maximum power to your vehicle’s electronics, the Traxxas iD High-Current Connector also enables the charger and battery to communicate. This means optimum charge settings specific to your battery for quicker, safer, more complete charging and extended battery life.
The Traxxas Ford GT uses pro-quality, high-grade, metric hex-drive hardware throughout for extra strength and easy maintenance and repair. The black-oxide rust-resistant finish provides a high tech look and feel.
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.
Precise rubber-sealed bearings offer super low-friction performance and maximum protection in dusty environments. These virtually maintenance free bearings are used in all exposed locations on the car.
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.
4-Tec 2.0 distributes power to all four wheels through a one-piece center driveshaft. The lightweight aluminum driveshaft 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 with superior rigidity and durability.
The 4-Tec 2.0 chassis features the same sealed, beveled-gear differential in the rear as the ultra-rugged Slash 4X4. Tune the performance by varying the viscosity of the fluid inside.
