Experience the Speed, Power, and Adrenaline
of NHRA Drag Racing in 1/8 Scale!
Outrageous Horsepower, Intense Speed, and Unmatched Realism
Cubic-inch for cubic-inch, no motorsport offers as much sheer power and performance as NHRA drag racing. A single funny car produces more horsepower than the first 8 rows of cars in a stock-car race. Drivers pull more than five Gs when they launch, accelerating faster than a fighter jet. Over 300mph is achieved in about the time it takes to read this sentence.
The Traxxas Ford Mustang NHRA Funny Car Race Replica brings it all to life the Traxxas way with outrageous horsepower, intense speed, and the unmatched realism and authenticity that only comes from being both fans and dedicated participants in NHRA drag racing. The Traxxas NHRA Funny Car accurately captures the total racing experience with realistic staging action on the start line. After your burnout, shake up your opponent by being the last one to roll into the stage beam. When the lights go green, release the Launch Control for a perfect reaction time. You've already set your wheelie bar and used the multi-function knob on your transmitter to fine-tune the launch for maximum traction and acceleration. From there, it's up to you to keep it full throttle down the track and across the finish line.
Off the track, the realism continues with tilt-up licensed bodies developed from the full size CAD drawings, tube style chassis, super-sticky belted slicks, and accurate detailing. The front latch eliminates body clips for fast access to the battery compartment. The full suspension system is engineered to give the Traxxas NHRA Funny Car the ability to handle the ruts and bumps of real world track surfaces. Combined with the Traxxas DTS-1 Drag Timing System (sold separately) and the Traxxas Link application and Traxxas drag racing becomes a full-on simulation with timing so accurate, races are won and lost by a millisecond. Only Traxxas could bring this level of intense racing competition and all-out fun together in such a tightly engineered package.
Realistic "Tube" Chassis
The steel, welded-tube construction of the full-size John Force Racing Funny Cars is replicated by the Traxxas NHRA Funny Car's gleaming black-chrome chassis. Details including the front-mounted fuel tank (non-functional, of course) and driver's roll cage give the Funny Car authentic looks to match its realistic performance. The wheelie bar is a functional tuning aid that helps the Funny Car transfer weight to the rear wheels for a perfect launch.
Traxxas Stability Management
Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) allows you to experience all the extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered into the Traxxas Funnycar making it much easier to control on common slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, dust and even smooth concrete. Punch it off the line and TSM goes to work sensing the vehicle’s direction and making steering corrections to provide straight-ahead full-throttle acceleration without fishtailing, spinouts, and loss of control. TSM also works during cornering, first making intuitive corrections to maintain your line, and then allowing you to hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. Braking is dramatically improved as TSM works to keep you arrow straight until you come to a complete stop. TSM acts as your on-board co-pilot in the vehicle that “feels” what the vehicle is doing and makes corrections for vehicle movements that you cannot even detect, well before the vehicle gets out of control.
Traxxas TSM gives you all the benefits modern electronic stabilization has to offer without intruding on your driving fun. Traxxas engineers developed superior tuning algorithms that run on high-speed, precision electronic components to create a system that works invisibly, in the background, without ever limiting your throttle. TSM can be fine tuned (or turned off) for different surfaces by simply adjusting the multi-function knob on the TQi transmitter, or by adjusting the slider in the Traxxas link app. The result is that you are driving faster, with more ease, and having more fun,with that fully connected feeling at the controls that you expect. In fact, you may not even realize how much TSM is helping you until you turn it off and test your driving skills without it! (click here for more details)

TQi 2.4GHz Intelligent Transmitter
The World's Most Advanced Ready-To-Race® Radio System
The Traxxas Ford Mustang NHRA Funny Car is equipped with the TQi,™ the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race® radio system. The radio system is the sole connection between the driver and machine and the all-new Traxxas TQi has been engineered to be precise, comfortable, powerful, and reliable. The TQi radio system arrives with a full complement of tuning features including steering and throttle sensitivity, steering percentage, braking strength, servo end points, and more. The unique 4-channel transmitter allows you to select Burnout, Staging, and Race Modes. When you're ready to pull the trigger and race, the Launch Control switch lets you hold full throttle and flip the switch to launch. Use the multi-function knob to dial in the ET-3s speed control's torque settings for the quickest launches. Tune for temperature and track conditions just like the pro's. The TQi's long-range, high-output, 2.4GHz signal combines with proven Traxxas reliability for rock-solid performance.
Over-The-Top Brushless Horsepower
NHRA Funny Cars are famous for their fire-breathing 8000 horsepower engines that deliver massive thrust and propel them to speeds over 300mph in just 4-seconds. When the light goes green, the ET-3s brushless power system responds in an instant and unloads a massive blast of Extreme Power™ that rockets the Traxxas Ford Mustang NHRA Funny Car to the finish line. There are no brushes to wear out so you can dial in consistent times and blazing speed, pass after pass. Traxxas' exclusive Staging Mode (patent pending) allows the Traxxas NHRA Funny Car to creep into the stage beams of the DTS-1 timing system (sold separately) allowing you to execute authentic starting line strategy against your opponent.
MODEL 6907: Traxxas Ford Mustang NHRA Funny Car Race Replica, fully assembled, Ready-To-Race®, with 4-channel TQi™ 2.4GHz radio system, Traxxas ET-3s Brushless Power System, and Race Replica ProGraphix® painted body.
DTS-1 Drag Timing System
Capture the Total Drag Racing Experience
You've never seen anything like this before! Traxxas innovation takes your racing fun to a whole new level with an authentic, portable, and affordable drag race timing and scoring system. The DTS-1 Drag Timing System unfolds and turns any strip of smooth asphalt into your own personal drag strip. Everything has been scaled to re-create the entire drag racing experience with as much accuracy and realism as possible. The center point is the authentic Christmas tree with its super bright LED display and modern stage light configuration.
Dual beams on the starting line allow competitors to pre-stage and stage with laser precise accuracy. Depending on your quickness and skill, you can select either a pro or sportsman tree for the countdown. When the lights go green, the race is on; but don't jump the start or you'll be disqualified! At the end of the track, the finish line beams determine the winner with millisecond accuracy. Race up to 330 feet or the equivalent of a 1/4 scale quarter mile.
Want even more detail? Use the Traxxas Link App and your Android, iPhone or iPod touch and the DTS-1 creates digital time slips with your elapsed time, reaction time, and trap speed to a tenth of a mph. The DTS-1 adds a whole new dimension that takes your drag racing fun to an exciting, full-on simulation of the NHRA pro racing experience.
