In 2005, DC Shoes co-founder Ken Block entered his first pro rally race. At the end of the season, he was named Rally America Rookie of the Year. Today, Ken Block is one of the most recognized names in motorsports. Beyond his success in the Rally America and World Rally Championship series, Block is best known for his gymkhana skills, as over 110 million online video views will attest. In his specially-prepared Ford Fiesta Gymkhana car, Block combines laser-precise driving with tire-smoking fury to perform seemingly impossible moves. His on-road acrobatics require a vehicle that can deliver intense power through all four wheels, with the responsiveness and “feel” that only a finely tuned machine can provide. You can experience the challenge and satisfaction of executing that perfect slide between the pylons with the Traxxas radio controlled Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta. This officially licensed special-edition race replica features the unmistakable Ken Block/Monster Energy graphics of Ken Block’s full-size Ford Fiesta competition car. Beneath the bodywork, Traxxas’ race-proven technology, full-time 4WD, and tire-spinning Titan 550 high-torque motor allow you to thread the needle through the course with scalpel-like precision. The fun lasts for hours as you perfect the throttle and steering inputs to make each tire-blistering slide more perfect than the last.
Revo Innovation, Tuned For The Street
The Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta utilizes the award-winning Revo’s F-1 inspired, rocker-actuated suspension system which has been expertly engineered for 1/16 Gymkhana driving right down to the oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks and rally-tuned springs. The all-wheel drive system rides on full ball-bearings and delivers smooth, efficient power through the Torque Control slipper clutch, sealed bevel-gear differentials, and Traxxas’ proven telescoping u-joint drive shafts. The suspension and driveline are fully integrated into the compact chassis. 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.
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 and delivers the smooth throttle control needed for precise gymkhana-style driving. 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 a high-performance speed control.
The #7308 Ken Block Gymkhana 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.
Waterproof Electronics For No-Limits R/C Excitement
Just like Ken Block, the Gymkhana 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.
The Ken Block Gymkhana 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 Gymkhana 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. Traxxas backs the Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta and all of our products with top-notch support that is second to none.
