TRAXXAS FACTORY FIVE HOT RODS
The Traxxas Factory Five Hot Rods honor the early days of hot rodding when big power, bright chrome, and curved steel ruled the streets. Like their full-size Factory Five counterparts, the Traxxas ‘33 Coupe and ‘35 Truck combine modern chassis design with eye-catching gorgeous bodies. Riding on the 4-Tec 3.0 chassis, the Traxxas Hot Rods offer blistering speed and razor-sharp reflexes with timeless good looks. Beautiful to behold and even more fun to drive, the Traxxas Factory Five Hot Rods add a classic touch to your RC experience.
A steeply-raked chrome grille flows into the long narrow hood and aggressively chopped roof. Chrome headlights flank the sculpted fenders with full running boards. Deep, lustrous paint and wild graphics complete the package. The look is pure classic hot rod and Traxxas brings this timeless style to life in 1/10 scale.
NEW 4-TEC 3.0 HOT ROD CHASSIS
The 4-Tec 3.0 chassis wheelbase is extended to 300mm and outfitted with ultra low-profile suspension. This allows for highly accurate, deep-cut body lines and exacting proportions throughout both models. The rigid modular platform delivers ultimate steering precision and nearly infinite tuning potential. No classic hot rod ever handled this well.
Factory-installed LED lighting adds another layer of scale detail to the sculpted Hot Rod bodies. Brilliant white LEDs illuminate the headlight housings to lead the way with red tail light lenses for the competition as you blow past them. Naturally everything’s waterproof to keep the fun going, regardless of weather conditions.
Insightful design touches and precision engineering, combined with a low-CG, mid-motor configuration and fully adjustable suspension, make the Traxxas Factory Five Hot Rods as exciting and capable as the real thing.
The 4-Tec platform’s new 3.0 spec is larger than the previous 4-Tec with an extended wheelbase, larger wheels and tires, and a wider track that enhances stability and handling. Proven GTR Shocks deliver road-tuned handling with full adjustability.
Look beneath the Hot Rods’ classic 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.
Replica Tires and Wheels
Larger 4-Tec 3.0 tires and matte-black Salt Flat-style wheels with mirror chrome trim rings provide increased stability and improved handling. The replica brake discs incorporate standard 12 mm wheel hexes and feature red brake calipers.
Clipless Front Body Mount
Both Hot Rod bodies preserve their flowing hoodline without body posts using a front latch built into the shock tower. When it’s time to change the battery, just remove the two rear clips and the entire body slides off in seconds.
The 4-Tec’s high tech suspension 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.
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.
Oil-Filled GTR Shocks
Low-profile GTR shocks provide the ultimate combination of performance and scale accurate appearance. Features include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and threaded bodies for precise ride height and preload adjustment.
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.
High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
A high-performance hot rod 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.
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.
Molded Wire Retainer
A simple wire clip would look out of place with this high tech chassis. Traxxas engineers designed a trick molded wire retainer to keep wiring secured safely out of the way.
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.
Fixed Gear Mesh System
Setting the perfect gear mesh can be a complicated and arduous process. Traxxas 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.
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.
