;e 4-Tec 2.0 is set up to endure the
neighborhood, not a carpet track,
so there’s more daylight between
the chassis and the ground than a
competition tourer. Note
the kick-up on the front
bumper, too—it won’t
catch on expansion joints,
sidewalk gaps, etc.
From the top, it’s easy to see the di;erence in front- and rear-tire widths. ;e
battery tray is long enough for a 7-cell flat NiMH pack, and the quick-release
battery strap snaps into place without any clips to lose. Want to upgrade to Velineon
brushless power? Molded posts in the chassis make it an easy drop-in install.
Like the Slash 4X4 and Stampede 4X4, the 4- Tec 2.0’s
chassis is modular for easy maintenance. You'll find Slash
4X4 di;erentials at both ends of the car, making the
4-Tec 2.0 brushless ready.
Out of the box, the

Fixed-length camber links and tie rods make camber and toe settings goofproof.
Traxxas knows that many will want to tune, and turnbuckles will be o ;ered as an
option. ;ere are also holes in the arms for droop screws, and if drifting is your thing,
you can remove the steering stops (circled) and move the tie rods to the forward
position for extra-long steering throw.
Along with the factory-installed posts for the Ford G T body,
Traxxas includes a trick set of posts that can be adjusted for
width and fore/aft position to suit any aftermarket body (or to
compensate for a misdrilled post hole).
