What can you do with the Traxxas Link App?
Only Traxxas gives you the power to unlock the full potential of the Traxxas TQi Radio System with Traxxas Link, the custom application that integrates your Android, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with the TQi transmitter. Gone are the clunky controls and blocky monochrome graphics of yesterday's radio systems. This powerful App gives you complete control over the operation and tuning of your Traxxas radio controlled model with an intuitive, high-definition graphical user interface. Install Traxxas Link telemetry sensors on the model, and Traxxas Link displays real-time data such as speed, RPM, temperature, and battery voltage with stunning graphics. Traxxas builds the world's fastest Ready-To-Race radio-controlled models, capable of speeds that exceed 100mph. That level of performance demands precision control. Traxxas Link gives you the tools for exacting adjustment and superior control while always keeping you informed on your model's status and speed.
Traxxas Stability Management
Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) allows you to experience all the extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered into your Traxxas model by making it much easier to control the vehicle on common slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow. 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 your vehicle arrow straight until it comes to a complete stop.
How does it Work?
Traxxas Stability Management is included in select Traxxas vehicles. TQi receivers with TSM have a new part number, 6533. TQi transmitters updated with the latest firmware allow you to adjust the amount of assistance provided by TSM using the Multi-Function knob. More assistance tightens the control, virtually eliminating fishtailing and sliding. Less assistance allows the vehicle to be more loose for controlled power slides and “steering” with the throttle. TSM never restricts throttle input. The driver always has complete control of the power. TSM can easily be turned off by simply turning the multi-function knob counterclockwise to its stop. TSM can also be adjusted in the Traxxas Link application. The control icon is in the “Garage” in Traxxas Link and also the Drive Effects screen. Each model has a specific software load, custom tuned to the model. Traxxas Link remembers TSM setting when the driver uses the same transmitter and switches between various models equipped with TSM.
Available in the Apple App Store, Traxxas Link offers exciting features to exploit the full capabilities of the DTS-1 Drag Timing System. When combined with the DTS-1, Traxxas Link allows you to capture all the nuances of Pro drag racing competition. Traxxas Link will fill in your time slip with reaction time, elapsed time, and trap speed in actual miles per hour. Keep a run history on each of your models. Share time slips and setup race events with your friends. Dial in your ETs and any two cars can compete fairly, regardless of their top speeds! Race like the pros, using staging strategy to pressure your opponent. Only Traxxas makes drag racing so easy, accurate, fast, and fun!
Traxxas Link makes it easy to learn, understand, and access the powerful tuning options built into every Traxxas TQi radio system. Control your Drive Effect 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. With Traxxas Link, everything happens live, on-the-fly, giving you instant feedback on the changes you are making. Once you have created the perfect control settings for your model, save them as a profile that you can restore later, use on another model, or share with friends. If the track conditions change, simply re-tune your Drive Effects and save them as new profile.
Traxxas Link collects and records real-time telemetry data as you drive. When you equip your model with sensors, 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. 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 and saved to compare, review, and share with friends.
The Model configuration settings provide a beautifully simple, visual interface to fine tune servo adjustments such as sub-trims, endpoints, and servo reversing. Choose your servo by touching the channel icon. Model Setups can be customized to adjust for vehicle modifications such as changing the pinion gear or installing different tires. Just select the modifications from the list. Traxxas Link also gives you instant access to Training Mode, and even includes an adjustment to set how fast the model can drive in Training Mode. It's perfect when you want to quickly and easily share your vehicle with a driver that is not yet ready to experience the full top speed your vehicle is capable of.
Traxxas Link simplifies organization of your vehicle collection. The TQi radio system automatically keeps track of what vehicles it has bound to and what settings were used for each. Traxxas Link provides a visual interface to see the transmitter's model history, name the models, customize their settings, attach profiles, and lock them into memory. With Traxxas Link and the TQi radio system, there's never a need to try and remember which model in memory needs to be selected to drive. Simply choose a model and any previously bound transmitter, power them up, and start having fun. Traxxas Link recognizes the model and picks everything up right where you left off. An unlimited number of vehicles can be permanently stored. The factory settings for all Traxxas models are pre programmed so adding a new Traxxas model to your transmitter is a snap. Traxxas models factory equipped with TQi Traxxas Link receivers are detected and configured automatically.
Traxxas Link is also a handy tool for finding the hobby shop or Traxxas retailer closest to you and pinpointing them on a map. Access support tools, vehicle information, updates, built in contextual help and more.
