Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 Mustang GT RTR kit

Traxxas’ 4-Tec 2.0 all-wheel drive chassis is soon also available with a Mustang GT body shell. Taking the proven 4-Tec name to the next level the shaft-driven 4WD chassis is of a modular design, making maintenance and tuning a breeze. The wide tub chassis allows for massive space for the sealed receiver box, waterproof motor, speed controller, steering servo and battery while rigid suspension parts with pre-set geometry make the best out of the semi-slick high-grip tyres. The sealed, hardened steel bevel limited slip differentials allow the use of high-performance option motors with the kit coming with a standard 550-size 12T brushed variant. Included in the ready-to-run package is also a TQi 2.4GHz radio system and a Traxxas 7-cell NiMH battery. The kit is rounded out by an officially licensed Ford Mustang GT body shell.
