Traxxas RTR 1/16 Ford Fiesta

Feb 10, 2011 3 Comments by

Officially licensed from Ford, the number-one domestic auto maker, Traxxas’ new 1/16 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 Modified Muscle and XL-2.5 ESC

Leave it to Traxxas to put the huge torque of a the Titan 550 motor into the 1/16 Fiesta! The powerful Titan 12T 550 modified is 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.

Waterproof Electronics For No-Limits R/C Excitement

The 1/16 Ford Fiesta doesn’t slow down for rain. The waterproof servo and o-ring-sealed receiver box let you keep on racing, even in wet weather that parks lesser cars on the bench. The patent-pending sealed receiver box houses Traxxas’ proven micro receiver and can accept aftermarket receivers as well, without compromising the model’s waterproof properties. The new XL-2.5 electronic speed control and high-torque digital micro servo are sealed against the elements to give you total driving freedom.

100% Ready-To-Race®

The 1/16 Ford Fiesta is fully assembled with TQ radio system, painted and decaled body, pre-glued tires, and detailed instructions. A Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery and charger are also included, making the Fiesta truly Ready-To-Race. Designed specifically for the high-power needs of Traxxas vehicles, the potent Power Cell pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas’ exclusive High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run.

    Man is that the best Traxxis can do with the Fiesta body! Looks like a Japanese cartoon car. I know im not alone when I say I wish HPI or Tamiya would have beat Traxxis to the punch.
