1/10 Scale 4-Tec 2.0 AWD Chassis - Brushed!
Choose your own body, battery, and charger (sold separately) to create your custom ride!

The 4-Tec 2.0 AWD chassis provides the ultimate on-road driving experience. The high-tech chassis keeps weight positioned as low as possible for a crisp, responsive feel. The modular interlocking design allows easy maintenance while providing unprecedented rigidity and tight tolerances. A smooth undertray reduces drag and prevents snags on expansion joints while the finely tuned suspension keeps the wheels glued to the pavement for maximum on-road performance. The waterproof XL-5 electronic speed control channels power to the Titan® 12-turn motor for four wheel tire-spinning acceleration and blistering 30+mph* top speed. This is one chassis that begs to be driven hard!

Brushless Ready
Some vehicles claim to be "brushless compatible," but neglect to mention the long list of parts required to handle the extra power. At Traxxas, we build our vehicles tough enough to be brushless ready out of the box. The 4-Tec 2.0 chassis allows the massive VXL-3s power system to drop right in with minimal modifications. Overkill? Perhaps, but we can't resist going 70+mph. We don't think you'll resist either, so the drivetrain is built to handle the horsepower and speed.

Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 1/10 Brushed RTR Touring Car Chassis (NO Body)
Very impressed with this! Installed some drift wheels on it, and added a Honda Civic Type R (FD-2) body on it. I really like the fact that it is a shaft driven AWD because the belt-driven cars only seem to do well on smooth, clean surfaces (But there are still some high-end belt-driven on-roads). So far there are no durability related issues, but there is something that I would like to point out. The rear body posts are a bit short, so it may require some mods to it if you are choosing a taller body than what Traxxas has. What I did fix that was to put the bottom of the body posts to the highest position and take the top of the body post off (remove 4 screws that are lined up horizontally) and change the screws to 3x30mm screws. I also put some spacers on the screws to make all screws at the same height. Something else that I have noticed is that the wheel offset is a little wide for the Type R body that I'm using (especially in the rear, you can see it stick out if you look at the back of the car). However, if you are thinking about getting this, these issues should by no means convince you not to get it. The body posts are an easy fix, and only requires around 5 dollars extra, which is well worth it for the chassis's price tag of $205, and the wheels can still be used. Overall, here is a simplified summary of what I think:
- Great Price
- No Body (allows most 190mm and 200mm touring and drift car bodies)
- Nice and simple chassis design (only requires a few screws to take the car apart into three pieces)
- Smooth chassis (better airflow, doesn't snag on uneven surfaces, and allows the bottom of the chassis to slide right over)
- Shaft Driven (strong, nice for bashing)
- Cool, scale replica touring wheels
- Great aftermarket support (can get tons of great upgrade parts: Eg. from Yeah Racing, Integy...)
- Amazing Customer Service
- Driftable (well-balanced chassis and weight evenly spread out makes it very easy to control around corners) (most cheap drift wheels fit)

- Low rear body post for some bodies
- Rear wheels stick out a bit
- Sometimes problematic electronics (but no need to worry, Traxxas Customer Service is very friendly and almost always replaces problematic parts)

Overall, please get this car if you are thinking about it. I would recommend this to everyone (even beginners, the car isn't complicated), and if you have only driven off-road trucks, I suggest you try it out because I never realized how fun it is until I got one (had a Traxxas Slash 2wd, 2 TRX4s, and a UDR before). Try it out if you haven't already (or try any in the line of 4 Tec 2.0s)!

I have converted this into an fwd (yes, I am aware that I have an fwd rear-engine layout) by just taking off the two rear driveshafts (to match the body, Hondas are all fwd). So far the only issue that I have with it being an fwd is the tires. They feel like grippy drift tires after some good use, so definitely get a different set of tires for it if you can. I think that having stickier tires will help tons with the understeer. I still think that this is an amazing car, but I would prefer it if it came with better tires or no tires at all and reducing the price.

Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 1/10 Brushed RTR Touring Car Chassis (NO Body)
Purchased this after the car I originally wanted had been out of stock. That being said I got a castle sw4/6900kv combo when I purchased the car instead of going the VXL route as I spent a similar amount for a much better power plant. I ran it for about 20 mins on the brushed stock electronics just to give it a rip before throwing the castle in. With the castle on 70/29 gearing it’s wild. I can’t imagine what it’s gonna do on the 50/35!

Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 1/10 Brushed RTR Touring Car Chassis (NO Body)
I love this set up very well built and very sturdy. I have other on road cars. But this one is becoming one of my favorites. You also can’t beat the price. I have to say I’m always impressed with Traxxas.

Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 1/10 Brushed RTR Touring Car Chassis (NO Body)
I have had several traxxas models in the past, lately I've steered towards racing so I haven't purchased many RTR kits. I picked this 4 tec up to try on-road racing in a spec 4 tec class. This is a fun little car to mess with. It's fairly easy to work, maintenance access was thought out. On road it handles well and is easy to slide around but also easy to control.

After trying it out I went through and swapped diff/shock oils, radio, and the steering servo. I was surprised too actually see the diffs filled and it did feel like there was 30k front and 10k rear. Much better than just some grease. The shocks were filled properly and felt right.

The steering servo lists what the replacement gears part number is right on the case. None of the screws on mine were overtightened or stripped out.

The only negatives I can think of... To adjust the wheelbase you have to cut the rear control arms and keep the cutoff. I didn't like that, should have just done some plastic washers included with the control arms already short.

There isn't really any different shock mounting positions.

The diff outputs and center driveshaft seem a touch off center, just makes it loud and vibrates a bit, probably more a concern if you are trying to go brushless and do 70mph.

I would like to get another and build a rally car, I think with a little bit of cutting and some cheap mods this would make a great scale rally car chassis.

Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 1/10 Brushed RTR Touring Car Chassis (NO Body)
What intrest me is that this is simular to a HPI Sport3 i had already tore down and built back up (parts were hit or miss). all the other TC's i've had the honor to build be it VBC, AE, Tamiya, Schumacher, MST, Xray are all really swell fast and nimble, now the fun of a kit like this Traxxas,
i don't care who manufactures what, if it intrests me i'm remodeling it or using whom ever's nifty hop ups. alot of GPM parts are going on here and they have stepped up their product quite substantially since years past, RC has come a long way in awsome manufacturing products, and Traxxas is one of them. what's grand about kits like this one is that, and i believe you could actually throw this RC car across the street and not be able to break anything(maybe).
i dig different, i dig this, and can't wait to put a Mamba X in this ride.
4-Tec 4 me.
