SEMA Show 2010: Traxxas Ford Fiesta and BOSS 302

At the SEMA Show there are lots of toys. Sometimes they are real life toys for boys of all ages, not just those with a driver’s license. Traxxas, maker of high end remote control cars has always been on hand with their off-road racing RC vehicles that take reality and scale it down.

This year they rolled out some new licensed Ford models of their cars including the Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta and showed off a new concept of a 2012 BOSS 302 Mustang RC car. The Traxxas booth was crowded with enthusiasts asking questions about the two new products too.

The officially licensed special-edition Fiesta replica features Ken Block/Monster Energy graphics of Ken Block’s full-size Ford Fiesta competition car. Beneath the bodywork, Traxxas’ race-proven technology, full-time 4WD, and a tire-spinning brushless electric motor.

The suspension underneath these things is as high tech if not more than the real thing too. The Fiesta utilizes Traxxas’ award-winning Revo’s F-1 inspired, rocker-actuated suspension system. I has oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks and rally-tuned progressive-rate springs. The all-wheel drive system rides on full ball-bearings and delivers smooth, efficient power through a torque control slipper clutch, planetary gear differentials, and Traxxas’ proven telescoping u-joint drive shafts.

Right out of the box, the Fiesta thrills with 30+mph on the included 6-cell NiMH battery. Install an optional, second 6-cell battery to unleash the Velineon Brushless Power System’s full fury, and speeds jump to over 50mph with affordable, proven-safe NiMH packs.

The Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta is fully assembled with TQ radio system, Velineon brushless power system, painted and decaled body, pre-glued tires, and detailed instructions. A Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery and charger are also included, making the Gymkhana Fiesta truly Ready-To-Race.

As to the 2012 BOSS 302, we are told that Ford has to approve the licensing and it too will be off to the races. Nice.
