From Traxxas:

The Traxxas Raptor R™ is the newest member of the innovative Traxxas Pro Scale® lineup. Superb scale detail and proportion combine with 4X4 traction and extreme Velineon® brushless horsepower to faithfully capture the Raptor R™ driving experience. Only Traxxas Pro Scale® delivers both the exacting realism and unbeatable speed and durability performance drivers demand.


Only Traxxas Pro Scale combines pro-level performance with the look and feel of a real Ford Raptor R. The Traxxas Raptor R stops the show with a Ford-licensed body and molded replica parts for maximum scale authenticity. Velineon® brushless horsepower and an extreme heavy duty 4WD driveline give Raptor R performance credentials to match its stunning looks.


The Extreme Heavy Duty Upgrade Kit comes pre-installed on Raptor R to withstand the brutal punishment of high-power brushless systems. Raptor R’s driveshafts and suspension components are beefed up with extra material and overbuilt construction to form a nearly indestructible driveline.


High-flying stunts and 60+ mph desert speed runs won’t upset Raptor R’s tough clipless body. Locking tabs hold the body tightly, but release in just seconds to access the chassis. Raptor R’s hidden latching system maximizes convenience and scale realism by removing traditional body clips which would interrupt the body’s clean lines.



Raptor R sets the standard for scale detail with injection-molded parts for enhanced realism. Unique front and rear bumpers integrate neatly with the body for a clean look and strong impact resistance. The deep-inset front grille features bold Ford lettering and replica marker lights. Tough side mirrors, a hood vent, and rear tailgate panel complete the package.

Larger Diameter BFGoodrich® Tires

Oversize BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO2 are 5mm taller than standard Slash tires to replicate look and stance of the full-size Raptor R’s meaty 37″ treads. The replica Ford option wheels with beadlock trim feature the same 2.2″ outer and 3″ inner diameter as conventional short course truck wheels.

Molded Body Reinforcements

Raptor R’s clipless body latches are neatly integrated into molded body reinforcements that look great and protect the body. Unlike traditional posts and clips, Raptor R’s body reinforcements spread impact forces over a wide area to minimize the risk of pull-through damage.

Impact Absorbing Bumpers

Raptor R’s front and rear bumpers look as good as they perform. In addition to their integrated LED lighting, the bumpers are built Traxxas-Tough™ to absorb impact damage and give the truck a menacing stance.

4mm Steel Turnbuckles

Raptor R uses the same steel 4 mm turnbuckles developed for the Slash® 4X4. Broad flat sections make toe and camber adjustments easy with the included wrench. The fully captured rod ends take a beating and won’t pop apart during rigorous off-road pounding.


Oil-filled Ultra Shocks™ utilize dual X-ring technology for a perfect seal and silky-smooth performance. The large oil capacity and rugged design soaks up big jumps and off-road abuse for smooth driving performance. They are easy to tune with a wide range of available oils, springs, and pistons.

Extreme-Duty Suspension Components

Raptor R comes outfitted with the Extreme Heavy Duty Upgrade Kit already installed for ultimate strength and durability. The axle carriers C-hubs, and steering blocks are beefed up with more material and stronger construction.

Fixed Gear Adapter

Fixed gear adapters take the guesswork out of setting your gear mesh. The fixed positioning keeps the gear mesh tight, even after the harshest landings. The innovative motor mount keeps the Velineon motor locked firmly in place with just a single screw for easy maintenance.

Velineon 3500 Motor

A sensorless Velineon 3500 kV motor delivers extreme performance with nearly zero maintenance. Ultra high-temperature neodymium magnets, high-speed bearings, and a precision, 4-pole balanced rotor deliver smooth running and long life. Read More.


The waterproof Velineon VXL-3s® speed control is packed with technology to deliver maximum power. Large heat sink, integrated on/off switch, and three programmable drive profiles top the feature list. Two-stage low voltage detection allows full LiPo compatibility, including powerful 11.1-volt 3s packs! Read More.

5-Channel Receiver with Failsafe

The TQi 2.4 GHz radio system stores up to thirty models in memory, allowing you to use one transmitter for your entire RC garage. In the event of signal loss, the receiver automatically returns the throttle to neutral and holds the last steering position.

Waterproof Receiver Box

Raptor R incorporates a compact, waterproof receiver box to save weight and provide a clean, high-tech appearance. The antenna and servo wires route neatly through a patented watertight seal to protect the receiver from water. No matter what the weather, Raptor R is ready for action!

Chassis Nerf Bars

Rugged side nerf bars protect the chassis from rocks and other impacts. They also provide side support for the body for door to door racing action and impact protection.

Digital High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo

Raptor R’s extreme 60+ mph speed and quick reflexes require a steering servo that’s both strong and fast. The included digital high-speed, high-torque servo features ball bearings for precise control and quick reflexes.

Modular Chassis

Raptor R’s all-new modular chassis features front and rear bulkheads that remove easily with just a few screws. In less than a minute using a power screwdriver, you’ll have full access for easy service and adjustment.

Optimum-Geometry Steering with Integrated Servo Saver

A dual-bellcrank design pivots on rubber-sealed ball bearings for smooth action in the harshest conditions. The integrated cam-type servo saver protects the servo gears from crash impacts without sacrificing steering precision.

Heavy Duty Suspension Arms

Molded from our toughest composite material, Raptor R’s heavy duty suspension arms provide just the right amount of flex to resist breaking—even in cold weather! From skate parks to 10-foot ramps, these suspension arms stand up to even the most punishing drivers for non-stop fun behind the wheel.

Progressive Rate Springs

Progressive rate springs are lighter through the initial range of travel to maintain traction and composure over small ruts and bumps. Hit the big jumps and the springs tighten up to prevent bottoming the chassis at the upper limits of the suspension travel.

Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings

Precision rubber-sealed bearings offer the ultimate in super low-friction performance and maximum protection in dusty environments. They are used in all exposed locations on the truck and are virtually maintenance free.

Torque-Control™ Slipper Clutch

Raptor R’s patented slipper clutch design uses semi-metallic friction pads and a finned aluminum pressure plate to dissipate heat and provide consistent traction control. The slipper is easily adjusted without disassembly or removal, and the unique 3-pad design is proven tough in Traxxas’ most powerful vehicles.

Large 32-Pitch Gears

Designed from the start to handle big brushless horsepower, Raptor R’s 4X4 driveline uses a rugged spur gear with large 0.8 module/32-pitch teeth for reliability no matter how much power you pour on.

Extruded Aluminum Driveshaft

A one-piece extruded aluminum driveshaft is both strong and lightweight. Internal splines fit directly onto the input shafts of the front and rear drive assemblies. Altogether, this shaft runs straight and true for ultra-smooth driveline operation.

MAXX®-Duty Driveshafts

Raptor R’s huge-diameter driveshafts and upgraded U-joints are built to handle extreme Velineon® brushless power with ease. Large 6mm axles key into the included steel wheel hexes for unmatched strength and durability.

Sealed Steel-Gear Differentials

Proven front and rear oil-filled differentials utilize steel-gear internals for maximum durability. Silicone gaskets and X-ring seals allow you to tune the amount of locking action by varying the viscosity of the fluid inside the differentials.
