The name synonymous with American sports car excellence: Corvette. Traxxas delivers the spirit and excitement of the all-new mid-engine Corvette in exacting scale detail on the new, larger 4-Tec 3.0 chassis. The new Traxxas 4-Tec 3.0 puts supercar performance in your hands with a new long-wheelbase, wide-track design. The faceted, Corvette Stingray body and its massive side intakes are duplicated to the millimeter. The simulated LT2 V8 is visible beneath the rear hatch. Authentic black-chrome wheels fill the fenders. Beautiful to display—with Traxxas performance that demands you to drive
Every detail of the Stingray is faithfully captured. Beneath the rear “glass,” the engine bay shows off a realistic recreation of the 16-valve V8. Replica wheels shine in stealthy black chrome, and wide tires fill out the rear fender wheels to match the full-size machine’s muscular stance.
NEW LARGER 4-TEC 3.0 CHASSIS
The new 4-Tec® 3.0 chassis features a longer wheelbase and wider track developed specifically for the Corvette Stingray. In addition to ensuring accurate proportions, the longer, wider footprint improves stability and refines handling to deliver the steering precision and balanced feel of the mid-engine ‘Vette.
NEW CLIPLESS BODY MOUNTING
The Stingray’s meticulously detailed shape is unmarred by out-of-scale posts or clips. Instead, an integrated quick-release system secures the body invisibly. The hidden mechanism delivers a secure hold, and releases in seconds to provide chassis access.
The Traxxas 4-Tec 3.0 AWD Chassis is the perfect complement to the Corvette Stingray. Insightful design touches and precision engineering, combined with a low-CG, mid-motor configuration and fully adjustable suspension, make the Traxxas Stingray as exciting and capable as the real thing.
The 4-Tec platform’s new 3.0 spec is over 15% larger than the previous 4-Tec with an extended wheelbase, larger wheels and tires, and a wider track that enhances stability and handling. Proven Ultra Shocks deliver road-tuned handling with full adjustability.
Look beneath the Corvette Stingray’s exotic lines to reveal the individual design details that make the 4-Tec 3.0 chassis so rewarding. Traxxas examined every detail in order to create a dynamic, high-tech vehicle that’s as easy to operate as it is exciting to drive.
Detailed Replica Body
With 68 years of design history behind the new Corvette, it was important to capture every angle and line precisely. Traxxas meticulously recreates the new Stingray body with stunning accuracy. From injection-molded inserts to the LED-ready lenses, Traxxas sets a new standard for scale RC detail.
New Clipless Body Mounting System
The Stingray’s sculpted body incorporates mounts into the internal frame. There are no unsightly body posts to ruin the flow, just the sleek lines of the striking mid-engine Corvette. When it’s time to change the battery, just reach under the model to release the secure front and rear latches and the entire body releases in seconds.
Replica Tires and Wheels
The Corvette’s larger 4-Tec 3.0 tires and detailed black-chrome replica wheels provide increased stability and improved handling. The replica brake discs incorporate standard 12 mm wheel hexes and feature red brake calipers. The brake calipers even switch from leading to trailing orientation to give your ride that fully authentic look.
Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks
4-Tec 3.0 rides on oil-filled Ultra Shocks utilizing X-ring technology for a perfect seal and silky-smooth performance. They are fully tunable with a wide range of oils, springs, and pistons. Features include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and spring clips to precisely change the ride height and spring pre-load. Redesigned shock caps feature hollow balls for better articulation and durability.
High Performance Suspension Adjustments
The 4-Tec features a high angle steering option with separate mounting holes in the linkages. With minor modifications, high angle steering allows your Corvette Stingray to rotate further for epic drifting around corners. The high tech suspension also features bosses molded into the arms to adjust droop. Suspension droop is the amount of downward travel on the wheels. Droop adjustment allows the 4-Tec 3.0 to be tuned for better stability in the corners.
Integrated Servo Saver
Conventional servo savers earned a reputation for sloppy steering in on-road cars. The 4-Tec 3.0 incorporates the servo saver into the horn for precise and responsive handling in all situations. An integrated collar allows the spring tension to be adjusted for personalized settings or track conditions.
Waterproof Receiver Box
Real world driving requires dealing with the elements. The 4-Tec 3.0 comes fully protected with a patented waterproof receiver box. The innovative receiver box keeps the micro receiver dry, even in the worst weather.
High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
A high-performance car needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance, and Traxxas delivers with the 2075 high-torque servo. This waterproof steering servo uses O-ring seals to keep the fun going when things get wet. Waterproof for all-weather action, the 2075 provides 125 oz-in of steering muscle.
Molded Wire Retainer
A simple wire clip would look out of place with this futuristic high tech chassis. Traxxas engineers designed a trick molded wire retainer to keep wiring secured safely out of the way.
Fixed Gear Mesh System
Setting the perfect gear mesh can be a complicated and arduous process. The Traxxas Corvette Stingray eliminates the hassle with its innovative fixed positioning system. Use the convenient chart included in the user manual to select the proper hole for your pinion gear.
The Traxxas iD® High-Current Connector funnels maximum power from your battery to the 4-Tec’s electronics. This innovative connector also enables your iD-equipped charger and battery to communicate. This ensures optimum charge settings specific to your battery for quicker, safer, more complete charging and extended battery life. Click here to find a battery and charger for your 4-Tec.
The 4-Tec 3.0 uses pro-quality, high-grade, metric hex-drive hardware throughout for extra strength and easy maintenance and repair. The black-oxide rust-resistant finish provides a high tech look and feel.
Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Precise rubber-sealed bearings offer super low-friction performance and maximum protection in dusty environments. These virtually maintenance free bearings are used in all exposed locations on the car.
One-piece steel driveshafts save weight and send power directly to the wheels for lightning quick response times. Extended drive cups allow for maximum articulation and ultimate durability.
Steel Center Driveshaft
4-Tec 3.0 distributes power to all four wheels through a one-piece center driveshaft. There are no dogbones to wear and no drive cups to wobble. The steel driveshaft runs straight and true with a center support bearing to handle the high RPM of Velineon brushless upgrades.
Proven Sealed Differentials
The 4-Tec 3.0 chassis features the same sealed, beveled-gear differential in the front and rear as the ultra-rugged Slash 4X4. Tune the performance by varying the viscosity of the fluid inside.
