Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer Pro-Scale RTR

Traxxas have introduced their new Unlimited Desert Racer Pro-Scale ready-to-run truck. The 694mm long off-road truck offers extreme scale realism with performance to match as it features an independent front suspension, 4-link rear solid axle and a capable 4WD drivetrain. The core of the truck is the inverted tub chassis that allows to replace batteries without removing the body or drop the entire motor and transmission assembly as a single unit. The design also concentrates weight as low as possible for exceptional handling. The versatile battery compartment allows the use of dual 2S or 3S LiPos or a single 4S brick.

The rear solid axle, centre torque-biased drive and front diff are equipped with tough steel gears and heavy duty front CVDs and Pro-Scale driveshafts transfer the power to the wheels. New extreme-travel GTR shock absorbers are threaded to adjust ride height on a single high performance spring at each corner as a separate slave shock provides additional damping action and doubles the oil capacity for the smoothest action possible. Realistic swaybars and suspension limiter straps round out the package. As for the power train, the truck is propelled by the new VXL-6s speed controller with telemetry and the 2200kV brushless motor is capable of providing speed of up to 80km/h. Taking care of the control of the truck is a heavy duty waterproof metal gear servo and a TQi radio system. The truck is rounded off by a Pro-Scale body with realistic interior, moulded body details, functional spares and a set of replica BFGoodrich tyres and wheels. According to Traxxas the vehicle will hit stores in March.
