Powerful New Look Nitro
4-Tec has hot new look with complex, innovative body graphics that reflect the
style and speed of the underlying chassis. New grey parts and white
powder-coated springs brighten the chassis and make it easier to appreciate the
detailed engineering that makes it all work. The 2.0 Mesh wheels offer classic

appearance feature is the sight of the giant TRX 3.3 machined cooling head
thrusting itself above the body. The look of power is unmistakable.
EXTREME POWER FOR EXPERT DRIVERS
Nitro 4-Tec 3.3 is not for everyone. This product is capable of extreme
speed and acceleration! It carries our highest skill level rating (5) and is
intended for expert drivers only. Experience with nitro-powered radio
controlled models is required. The driver must exercise all caution and

nearby. Full-speed operation requires a large running area free of obstacles
and closed-off to pedestrian and automobile traffic.

horsepower and breathtaking top speed right out of the box with no downside.
Nitro 4-Tec is a complete package that is fully assembled and Ready-To-Race®
