Unleashed Speed! 70+mph!



Blink and You?ll Miss It.
It?s the fastest, and most-powerful Ready-To-Race? model ever created, the 70+mph Nitro 4-Tec 3.3. Combine the Extreme Power of the TRX? 3.3 Racing Engine with an asphalt-hugging, lightweight chassis, and a raging fury of wickedly fast acceleration and supersonic speed is unleashed. Peg the throttle and all four tires claw for traction as Nitro 4-Tec 3.3 re-writes the record books and breaks through the 70mph barrier. In the asphalt jungle, Nitro 4-Tec 3.3 is the reigning king.


Nitro 4-Tec 3.3 didn?t take any shortcuts to the top. The TRX 3.3 Racing Engine delivers peak horsepower with a factory-installed performance-tuned aluminum pipe that?s been beautifully blue-anodized and laser etched. New precision hex hardware adds high-tech flair and makes servicing easy. The new ball-bearing equipped bellcrank steering system tightens the response for expert handling. The efficient 3-belt drive system has been enhanced for the extra speed and power with larger pulleys and a wider rear belt.


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 styling that withstands the test of time. Of course, the most exciting 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.



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 accept full responsibility for their own safety, and the safety of others nearby. Full-speed operation requires a large running area free of obstacles and closed-off to pedestrian and automobile traffic.


Only Traxxas makes it possible to experience this kind of world-class 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? with an installed, high-power pistol-grip radio system. The body is painted with incredible new graphics and the tires are pre-glued with hard foam inserts. Even the decals are applied.

The TRX 3.3 Racing Engine has the convenience of Traxxas EZ-Start? push-button electric starting. It includes built-in diagnostics to monitor your glow plug condition and starting functions. There?s no easier way to start an engine.

Full Traxxas support is included. Experienced pros are with you every step of the way to answer questions and help you get the most performance from your model. Toll-free* support is available via telephone, e-mail, or online. The electronic components are protected by the Traxxas Lifetime Electronics Warranty. The TRX 3.3 Racing Engine is backed by the Lifetime Engine Replacement Plan that makes it simple and affordable to maintain peak engine power down the road.

Where EXTREME Power Meets Technology!

TRX? 3.3 Racing Engine
The TRX 3.3 produces an extreme 60% more peak horsepower compared to the TRX 2.5! The overall power under the curve is nearly 50% greater to deliver the smooth, linear power output TRX? engines are famous for. The TRX 3.3 Racing Engine is equipped with EZ-Start? push-button electric starting and simple, reliable tuning from the two-needle composite slide carburetor. The easy-revving broad powerband pushes Nitro 4-Tec? 3.3 well beyond 70mph! Plus it?s backed by the support and reliability you expect from Traxxas including the Exclusive Lifetime Engine Replacement Plan.

EZ-Start? Electric Starting
Only the Traxxas EZ-Start offers the pure convenience of true one-handed operation and complete on-board, push-button electric starting. The Traxxas EZ-Start lights your glow plug and starts your engine quickly and smoothly at the push of a button. Traxxas? exclusive Smart Start? technology monitors critical starting functions, automatically sensing and diagnosing potential problems for trouble-free engine starting every time! LEDs provide realtime status, even alerting you when a glow plug has failed.

Resonator? Blue-Anodized Aluminum Tuned Pipe
The Traxxas Resonator aluminum tuned pipe is precision-engineered to maximize power output from the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine. The silicone stinger cover provides extra safety. Improved top-end power, enhanced bottom-end punch and smooth, linear power are the combined result of the laser-etched Resonator tuned pipe and the extreme horsepower of the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine.

Precision Hex Hardware
Precision, high-grade metric hex hardware with black oxide, rust-resistant finish adds durability and extra strength.

New ProGraphix? Body Graphics
High-tech new graphics compliment Nitro 4-Tec 3.3?s blistering speed, and they are available in four colors; red, blue, white, and black.

New Gray Components
Fresh, high-contrast gray chassis components cover the upper deck of the chassis and connect to the 6061 T6 blue-anodized aluminum chassis. The dual-plane chassis layout makes for a solid platform that is able to stand up to sweltering speeds.

Ball Bearing Bellcranks
Precision ball bearing bellcranks give a new meaning to control. Feel the road with every input and carve new lines with expert accuracy.

New Receiver Box
An enclosed receiver box provides premium protection against fuel spills, dirt and dust.

Wide Rear Belt and Large Pulleys
A wide rear belt was designed to handle the massive power output from the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine. And, to compensate for the increased power, oversized pulleys were implemented to push Nitro 4-Tec 3.3 beyond the 70mph mark.

Oil-filled Ultra Shocks?
Oil-filled Ultra Shocks with new gray shock bodies powder-coated white springs deliver silky-smooth performance and precise damping control with racing-style clip-on pre-load spring spacers. High-tech and long-lasting X-ring seals provide superior sealing and reduced friction.

Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Efficient rubber-sealed ball bearings throughout ensure smooth, long-lasting and precise performance. They provide ultimate protection to minimize maintenance in high-speed, nitro environments.

All-Wheel-Drive Driveline
An efficient, three-belt all-wheel-drive system delivers smooth power to the front and rear hardened-steel planetary gear differentials.

Adjustable Two-Speed Transmission
The adjustable two-speed transmission delivers blistering acceleration in first gear and automatically shifts into second gear for 70+mph speeds!

Pre-Glued Tires on Mesh Wheels
High-performance, directional racing tires come pre-glued on 2.0-inch mesh wheels. Contoured-foam inserts strengthen the sidewalls and keep the tires on the asphalt.

Gear Differentials with Ball Bearings
Bearing supported differentials are supported by the housings, not the output shafts, eliminating destruction of the internal differential components caused by belt tension.

Adjustable Steel Turnbuckles
Steel turnbuckles with durable captured rod ends allow the adjustment of tow-in and camber. Nitro 4-Tec?s adjustability provides a wide-range of setup options to suit virtually any on-road condition.

U-Joint Driveshafts
Power is transferred via smooth, slider-style U-joint driveshafts from the differentials to the wheels for reliable power delivery.

High-Impact Bumper w/Foam Attachments
Designed specifically to protect the front end of the Nitro 4-Tec 3.3 this bumper can handle a tremendous amount of abuse. To add to the protection, a rough foam attachment is included.

Center-Mounted Fuel Tank
The centrally mounted fuel tank is secured low in the center of the chassis so that the car?s handling is not affected as the fuel level changes. The central location provides excellent balance and an extremely low center of gravity.

Countersunk 6061-T6 Aluminum Chassis
Fully countersunk, 2.5mm 6061-T6 aluminum chassis integrates the engine mount and top plate giving Nitro 4-Tec 3.3 the most rigid chassis structure in its class.
