Aug 02, 2012 1 Comment by

The 30th Anniversary Grave Digger comes equipped with custom molded green ladder bars and bumpers, deep-dish wheels with a realistic bead-lock design, and a TQi 2.4GHz radio system. Check out the press release below for all the features:

Traxxas, the Official Hobby Class Radio Control Truck of Monster Jam, now offers five officially licensed Monster Jam models, each fully assembled and Ready-To-Race®. Choose from 30th Anniversary Grave Digger®, Grave Digger®, Captain’s Curse®, Monster Mutt, Maximum Destruction, and Advance Auto Parts Grinder™; all feature pre-applied decals with officially licensed graphics to precisely duplicate the full-size monster machines. To celebrate the legendary Grave Digger’s three decades of dominance as the ultimate monster truck, Traxxas presents the new 30th Anniversary Grave Digger® with TQi 2.4GHz radio system. This new Traxxas replica is the most detailed yet. The anniversary-edition Grave Digger’s purple metal-flake paint and flames are faithfully duplicated, and sinister skull graphics come to life with glowing red LED eyes. Chrome-bezel headlights with red LEDs of their own illuminate the Grave Digger’s path with crimson light.

The 30th Anniversary Grave Digger includes custom molded green ladder bars and bumpers to capture the menacing look of Monster Jam’s fiercest competitor. New tires developed specifically for the Monster Jam models emulate the “hand carved” look of the full-size treads, and new deep-dish wheels with bead-lock detailing complete the aggressive, authentic look.

30th Anniversary Grave Digger is equipped with the world’s most advanced Ready-To-Race® radio system. The all-new Traxxas® TQi™ arrives with a full complement of tuning features and offers the unbeatable convenience of “no channels, no crystals” 2.4GHz technology—but that’s just the beginning. Automatic model recognition instantly recalls your settings for up to 30 Traxxas Link-enabled models. Just switch on and drive, no naming or “model memory” settings required. Power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! The new TQi 2.4GHz transmitter is fully adjustable: steering and throttle end points can be set precisely, and the Multi-Function knob can be programmed to control Steering Sensitivity (Expo), Throttle Sensitivity (Expo), Steering Percentage (Dual Rate), Braking Percentage (Dual Rate), or Throttle Trim. TQi’s ergonomic case design provides all-day driving comfort, and the unique internal antenna contributes to its sleek, modern look.

The TQi’s most important new feature may already be in your pocket. The TQi can be equipped with an optional Docking Base (#6510) that turns your iPhone® or iPod touch® into a powerful tuning tool for your Traxxas model. The full-color display combines with the free Traxxas Link™ App (on the App Store) to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that unlocks the mysteries of optimizing your radio system for ultimate vehicle control. Traxxas Link also opens the door to telemetry capability when you add optional sensors to your model.

Crushing cars, catching big air, and popping wheelies has never been this much fun, and Traxxas’ new Monster Jam models make the action more realistic than ever. When it comes to speed, the Titan 12-turn 550 modified motor and racing-style Magnum 272™ transmission propel Grave Digger to speeds over 30mph*. The integrated cooling fan in the Titan 12T pulls air through the motor keeping it cool. Airflow is routed through cooling channels molded into the motor plate. A cooler running motor delivers faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life.

Traxxas shocked enthusiasts with the release of our exclusive watertight, sealed electronics that provide the freedom to drive where you want to drive through water, mud, snow, and other wet-running conditions that wouldn’t have been possible before. The Monster Jam models’ XL-5 electronic speed control and the mini receiver are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom go places you might not have thought possible. It opens up a whole new world of adventure and fun.

To harness the power of the 12-turn motor, Traxxas bolted in the high-performance, waterproof XL-5 electronic speed control. Ultra-smooth, high-frequency operation and high-power handing capability, are standard features. The XL-5 is LiPo-Ready thanks to the included Low-Voltage Detection. EZ-Set® one-button setup makes it easy to adjust or change profiles. Traxxas’ exclusive Training Mode™ profile cuts total power output in half and leaves the brakes at full strength. It’s the first controller of its kind that has a 50% power profile. Training Mode is designed for young or first time drivers that want to learn the ropes before unleashing the full power of the mighty Titan 12T motor. This makes Grave Digger perfect for almost any age driver or skill level.

The quest for ultimate speed began with the battery connector. As today’s batteries store more and more energy inside their cells, traditional battery connectors became a roadblock, unable to deliver all the energy the battery is capable of outputting. The new Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for unrestricted current flow.­

The 30th Anniversary Grave Digger comes fully loaded with innovative performance options like a fiber-composite chassis designed for exceptional rigidity and enormous ground clearance. Battery removal is made easy by the quick-release battery hold down latch. In addition, the factory-installed planetary differential never needs adjusting! Just take the truck out of the box, charge up a battery, and go have fun! If you’re looking for an all-terrain truck that is perfect for monster bashing or wheelie-popping thrills, look no further.
