    The Dark Knight
    Designed for low traction dirt tracks the new Cougar KD raises the bar again. After a great performance at the European Off-Road Championships in Spain the KD prototype proved its pedigree. Both cars qualified for the ‘A’ Main, with Michal Orlowski finishing 3rd on the podium. The KD has the adjustability to be set up perfectly, from loose dirt to hard packed clay tracks as well as other low grip surfaces. Whether tight and twisty or open and flowing.
    The new Cougar KD, taking dirt seriously.

    This is the truck that started the monster truck phenomenon and brought car-crushing fun and excitement to fairgrounds and arenas everywhere!
    Traxxas faithfully captures the spirit and classic look of BIGFOOT No. 1 in amazing detail with this fully licensed replica. Relive the thrill of your first monster truck event with this classic powerhouse. Hammer the throttle for non-stop wheelies and crush the competition underneath its towering stance. Built Traxxas Tough™ for all-day fun, BIGFOOT comes out of the box fully assembled, waterproof, and Ready-To-Race®.

    The ingenious S6240RX saves weight and space by combining a digital high-speed metal geared servo with a 2-channel DSMR receiver in a single unit. The servo itself features the durability of metal gears and is capable of delivering lightning-fast transit times along with 208 oz-in of torque.
    The built-in SR2010 receiver is just as impressive. It gives racers a sense of response that feels almost instantaneous, especially when used with a DSMR radio capable of 5.5ms transmission. As if that weren't enough, the S6240RX packs all this capability into a servo case that is shorter than many standard 1/10-scale servos.

    1/10 4wd Rock Rey RTR AVC
    The 1/10th 2.2 Rock Rey Rock Racer is incredibly versatile. Not only can it take on rocks with ease, this monster can bash over pretty much anything, anywhere. Through mud and water—at staggering speeds over 40 MPH. It features AVC technology, too.
    At a Glance
    The 1/10th 2.2 Rock Rey™ Rock Racer is incredibly versatile. Not only can it take on rocks with ease, this monster can bash over pretty much anything, anywhere. Through mud and water—at staggering speeds over 40 MPH. It features AVC® technology, too.
    Realistic 4WD Chassis with Long-Travel Suspension
    The Rock Rey chassis is a brilliant blend of scale realism with functional 4WD capabilities. The foundation consists of a 3.5mm, hard-anodized aluminum chassis plate that is integrated with a realistic roll cage made of super-tough composite material. To this it adds a long-travel, independent front suspension and 4-link live rear axle that look and function exactly like their full-scale counterparts.
    LED Light Bar
    Twelve brilliant LEDs on the light bar cast more than enough light for running at night without placing a huge current demand on the battery.
    Dynamite® 2800Kv Brushless Power System
    The vehicle comes equipped with a Dynamite Fuze™ 2800Kv brushless motor and a waterproof 130A ESC. This potent combination can handle 2S or 3S LiPo batteries (sold separately) and will allow you to hurtle across the landscape at speeds of up to 40+ mph.
    Sealed, Heavy Duty Metal-Gear Transmission and Diffs
    The transmission, as well as the front and center diffs, are sealed against the elements and engineered to handle the abuse of a high-output brushless motor and punishing terrain. MOD 1 gears further increase the durability of this off-road beast.
    Coil-Over Oil-Filled Shocks
    The long-travel shocks do a fantastic job of soaking up the energy from big bumps and jumps. They also feature threaded shock bodies with adjustment collars so you can fine tune the pre-load settings of the coil-over springs. External bump stops on the rear provide plush landings on the hardest surfaces.
    Waterproof Electronics
    The receiver, servo and ESC are all waterproof so you can run anytime, rain or shine.
    Easy-Access Motor
    The motor can quickly be accessed for gear changes and servicing simply by removing three screws in the bottom of the chassis.
    Easy-Access Battery Compartment
    A convenient battery door in the back of the chassis makes it easy to swap batteries without having to remove the body or wrestle with battery straps.
    Bolt-On Body Panels and Detailed Interior
    The bolt-on body panels are incredibly durable and eliminate the need for body posts that might spoil the scale looks. You also get a molded interior that includes a driver and rider figure, both of which sport racing helmet and harness details.
    The Full-Throttle Freedom of AVC® Technology
    When you’re ready to let the brushless motor off the chain, don’t hold back. The receiver’s built-in AVC (Active Vehicle Control®) system will work behind the scenes, making hundreds of tiny throttle and steering adjustments per second, so more of the motor’s power is translated into ballistic speed and acceleration instead of just flying dirt. An AVC adjustment knob on the included DX2E transmitter lets you adjust how much traction control the system provides. You can even turn it off.
