NHRA 1/8th Electric RTR Funny Car by Traxxas w/2.4Ghz TQi Radio
This product was added to our catalog on June 9, 2012.This is the Traxxas NHRA 1/8th Electric Funny Car. No motorsport offers as much sheer power and performance as NHRA drag racing. Cubic-inch for cubic-inch, a single funny car produces more horsepower than the first 8 rows of cars in a stock-car race, and the drivers pull more than five G's when they launch, accelerating faster than a fighter jet! In fact, NHRA funny cars reach speeds in excess of 300mph in the time it takes tread this sentence!
The Traxxas NHRA Funny Car Race Replica brings NHRA drag racing to life the Traxxas way, with outrageous horsepower, intense speed, and the unmatched realism and authenticity that only comes from being both fans and dedicated participants in NHRA drag racing. The Traxxas NHRA Funny Car accurately captures the total racing experience with realistic staging action on the start line. After your burnout, shake up your opponent by being the last one to roll into the stage beam. When the lights go green, release the launch control for a perfect reaction time. You’ve already set your wheelie bar and used the multi-function knob on your transmitter to fine-tune the launch for maximum traction and acceleration. From there, it’s up to you to keep it full throttle down the track and across the finish line!
Over the Top Brushless Horsepower!
NHRA Funny Cars are famous for their fire-breathing 8000 horsepower engines that deliver massive thrust and propel them to speeds over 300mph in just 4 seconds. When the light goes green, the new ET-3S brushless power system responds in an instant and unloads a massive blast of extreme power that rockets the Traxxas NHRA Funny Car to the finish line. There are no brushes to wear out so you can dial in consistent times and blazing speed, pass after pass. Traxxas’ patent pending "Staging Mode" function allows the Traxxas Funny Car to creep right up to the starting line without giving up a millimeter to your opponent, while the "Launch Control" function lets you dial in your torque to tune your launch for varying temperatures and track conditions.
The Traxxas Funny Car is equipped with the TQi, the world’s most advanced Ready-To-Race radio system. The TQi radio system arrives with a full complement of tuning features including steering and throttle sensitivity; steering percentage; braking strength; servo end points, and more. The unique 4-channel transmitter allows you to select Burnout, Stage, and Race Modes. When you’re ready to pull the trigger and race, the Launch Control switch lets you hold full throttle then drop the switch to launch. As the tree counts down use the multi-function knob to dial in the ET-3S speed control’s torque settings for the quickest launches. Tune for temperature and track conditions just like the pros. The TQi's long-range, high-output, 2.4GHz signal combines with proven Traxxas reliability for rock-solid performance. The TQi is so advanced, it doesn’t even need an external antenna!

Received the John Force Green version and am blown away by the car.
Have picked up a Traxxas 3S 6400mah 25C lipo for it and am waiting on the optional pinion to get it right up to top speeds.
For a car that has cost me $449 all up inc shipping, it is excellent value for money!
Well built and runs an awesome Castle made motor and esc.
