New from Traxxas:

Officially licensed from Ford, the number-one domestic auto maker, Traxxas’ new Ford Fiesta radio-controlled model captures the distinctive look and exciting performance of the popular compact. The model is based on the innovative Traxxas 1/16 Rally platform, an impressive street machine with F1-inspired suspension, full-time 4WD, and waterproof electronics—all fully assembled and Ready-To-Race®! The R/C Ford Fiesta is built for high-performance autocross action with a lowered stance, tough wide-body styling, and satin-chrome Split Spoke wheels. Hang it out in the turns and hustle down the straights with the perfect blend of speed, power, and traction—4WD makes it easy to drive like a pro. The rocker-actuated suspension system has been expertly engineered for high-performance street driving right down to the oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks and firm, road-tuned springs. The all-wheel drive system rides on full ball-bearings and delivers smooth efficient power through Traxxas’ Torque-Control™ slipper clutch and proven telescoping u-joint drive shafts. Intricately molded as a single piece, the chassis balances strength, weight, function, and style in an impressive achievement of packaging and performance optimization that could only come from Traxxas.

Titan Power & Waterproof Electronics

Traxxas’ Ford Fiesta model is equipped with a powerful Titan 12T 550 modified, the same motor used in Traxxas’ larger 1/10 scale models. The Titan 12T is designed for consistent torque and high speeds run after run. The XL-2.5 electronic speed control features Traxxas’ High-Current Connector for ultra-efficient power flow. Fully waterproof electronics are a Traxxas exclusive that opens the door to new driving adventures on rain-soaked asphalt.

New Media Editor About Jason: I’m on the west coast which the hot bed of RC. As such, I really enjoy being able to bang fenders and rub elbows with many of RC’s most elite racers. I’ve competed at many large events (done pretty well too) and I have found myself returning to the recently reinvigorated 1/10-scale electric off-road racing scene.
