XL-2.5 Waterproof Electronic Speed Control
Designed and engineered by Traxxas, the XL-2.5 Electronic Speed Control is completely waterproof for all-weather R/C driving fun. This high-performance ESC is packed with impressive specifications that are normally only found on more expensive high-end replacement units. The XL-2.5 features three throttle profiles, Thermal Shutdown Protection, 6-8 cell NiMH compatibility, and built-in BEC. High-frequency operation combined with ultra-low resistance make the XL-2.5 an efficient and ultra-smooth fully proportional speed control. The XL-2.5 is manufactured by Traxxas to ensure the highest level of quality and support.
Titan® 12-Turn 550 Modified Motor
Ford® Fiesta includes 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.
Performance-Tuned, F1-Inspired Suspension
The Ford Fiesta's innovative linkage-based suspension geometry increases spring and damping rates in proportion to cornering forces for perfectly balanced handling. The design is competition-proven by the 8-time National Champion Revo, and is specially configured for on-road action with new stiffer springs and piston specs for firmer damping and roll-resistance. The laydown shocks also lower the chassis' center of gravity for lightning-quick turning response.
Oil-Filled GTR Shocks™
Specially tuned for high-performance on-road driving, the super-smooth oil-filled shocks maintain control through extreme maneuvers. Threaded spring collars allow quick and accurate pre-load adjustment, and the shock's spring and damping rates have been carefully chosen specifically for the Ford Fiesta.
Tires & Wheels
For authentic sport handling, the slick tires are molded in a specially formulated compound that delivers the perfect blend of slip and grip to drift through turns and shred the straights. The tires are factory-glued to satin Split-Spoke wheels for an authentic look. The rims feature 12mm hexes that give the Ford Fiesta full compatibility with a wide array of aftermarket rim and tire combinations.
Officially Licensed Ford Fiesta Body and Graphics
The Ford Fiesta's exclusive body design features an aggressive, muscular shape wrapped in custom graphics that complement the unique Fiesta colors. Decals are applied to get you driving just minutes out of the box.
Four-Channel Micro Receiver
Traxxas' 4-channel micro receiver provides reliable reception as it saves weight, and dual channel-1 inputs allow you to install dual steering servos without the need for a bulky Y-harness. The receiver is fully protected from the elements by Ford Fiesta's waterproof receiver box.
Patented Traxxas High-Current Connectors
Adapters waste power! Connect-all systems pinch off power like a kinked garden hose. Get the most from your battery with a Patented Traxxas High Current Connector. It actually has less resistance than an equal length of wire, so you get pure power transfer for maximum speed, punch, and runtime.

Ball-Bearing Transmission With Torque Control Slipper Clutch
The Ford Fiesta's high-efficiency, heavy-duty transmission is built for brushless power. An adjustable slipper clutch lets you tailor power delivery to suit the terrain and your driving style, and precision ball-bearings make certain every watt of Velineon power is turned into pure speed.
Sealed Silicone-Filled Differentials
The Ford Fiesta's sealed, silicone-filled differentials resist "unloading" for superior performance and authentic handling as you drift through the corners with precision and control. The viscosity of the differential fluid has been precisely tuned for exciting on-road performance.
Pivot Ball Suspension
The Ford Fiesta features pivot-ball suspension for smooth suspension articulation and easy adjustment. Rubber-sealed ball bearings ward off dirt and debris as they increase precision and reduce friction, and the oversized 8x12mm inboard bearings maximize durability. For extra security, the heavy-duty axle carriers are designed so the universal-joint axles' crosspins are captured by the inner bearings—another example of Traxxas' attention to every detail.
Performance on-road driving requires smooth, efficient power delivery as the car drifts through turns and powers from challenge to challenge with sustained steering input. Chattering dogbones won't cut it! Traxxas steps up with fully equipped telescoping universal-joint axles for optimum drivetrain efficiency and maximum power transfer. The true-curvilinear spline design operates freely, and the oversized U-joints set the standard for strength and high-power durability.
The Ford Fiesta's waterproof electronics open the door to wild sliding maneuvers on rain-soaked pavement. The antenna and servo wires route neatly through the receiver box's special watertight seal (patent pending). To protect the receiver from dust and water, a custom shaped blue O-ring seals the receiver box. Thanks to the unique design, the receiver can be removed for service and even aftermarket receivers can be used, without losing the sealing properties of the box.
Digital High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
Small but powerful, the Ford Fiesta's 2080 servo cranks out 41.7 oz.-in. of tire-turning torque with digital circuitry for responsive steering and precise control as you slide through turns. Waterproof, o-ring-sealed construction locks out moisture, dirt, and debris.
Dual Battery Compartments
The Ford Fiesta unleashes its full speed potential with the included Power Cell battery pack, but for extended run time and more "punch," the chassis' dual battery compartments let you add a second NiMH battery pack and Traxxas parallel connector (both sold separately) to double the available battery capacity.
Traxxas Power Cell Series 1 NiMH Battery Pack
The Ford Fiesta is fully assembled and Ready-To-Race® with an included Power Cell NiMH battery and charger. This potent pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Patented Traxxas' exclusive High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run. A convenient wall charger is also included. Everything you need to power-up is in the box.
Quick-Release Battery Doors
Traxxas uses an innovative solution for easy battery installation. Quick release doors snap open and closed in seconds for fast and easy battery loading. There are no clips to lose in the field and the potential for fast battery changes during pit stops opens the door for a whole new class of electric racing.
Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Precision rubber-sealed bearings offer the ultimate in low-friction performance and maximum protection in dirty environments. They are used in all exposed locations and are virtually maintenance free.
Pro-quality, high-grade, metric hex-drive hardware is used throughout for extra strength, and easy maintenance and repair. The black-oxide rust-resistant finish provides a high tech-look and feel.
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.
