Pro-Scale is a new Traxxas innovation that captures true-scale realism and combines it with extreme 6s LiPo power and 50+ mph performance. The Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer faithfully captures the look and feel of Trophy Trucks and Unlimited Trick Trucks as they charge hard across the desert at full speed.
The Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer is engineered on an authentic, true to scale 4-wheel drive desert race truck chassis. The 4-link solid rear axle design provides huge suspension travel with authentic driving dynamics. From the cantilever sway bars to the 8 GTR shocks, Traxxas has accurately reproduced a true unlimited desert race chassis in both form and function.
6S EXTREME POWER
The 50+ mph Unlimited Desert Racer delivers its pro-level performance with brutal 6s power. The VXL-6s ESC combines massive power handling with high-tech telemetry features. An ultra-tough drivetrain harnesses the extreme power to make it easy to control and fun to drive.
RUGGED TUBE CAGE
The beautifully sculpted tube framework integrates fully with the chassis and suspension to form an incredibly strong lightweight structure for the shocks and suspension components to mount. The realistic design even includes the “tin” panels so the race chassis looks just as good with the body off for pre-race practice runs.
EASY ACCESS DESIGN
The unique inverted tub chassis helps maintain authentic true-scale design while still allowing easy access to critical components underneath the truck.
TRAXXAS STABILITY MANAGEMENT
Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) keeps the front end locked on course, allowing the driver to accelerate hard and straight and even slide out the rear with confidence. TSM never kills the fun by cutting throttle or slowing down the truck. Adjust the amount of assistance from off to 100% right from your transmitter.
TWIN GTR SHOCKSTwin GTR shocks at each corner replicate full-scale desert truck performance in perfect scale detail while delivering a plush ride through deep whoops and the roughest sections of the course.
Only slightly shorter than the X-Maxx, the Unlimited Desert Racer’s large footprint is right-sized to offer increased capability and 6s power-handling off-road, while still being easy and convenient to handle and transport.
EXTREME SUSPENSION TRAVEL
The key to the Unlimited Desert Racer’s phenomenal off-road ability lies in its extreme suspension travel and ground clearance. The plush, seemingly bottomless travel is built to soak up whoops and washboard ruts with ease. The suspension does the work while the chassis remains steady and composed.
4-LINK REAR SUSPENSION
Massive trailing arms and heavy-duty linkages, along with the functional limiting straps, keep the solid axle firmly in control. The precision- engineered 4-link geometry rewards driver finesse with responsive and predictable handling as you rotate the truck and steer with the throttle through the tight sections of the course.
HEAVY-DUTY STEEL DRIVETRAIN
The drive system uses thick steel axles and an all steel-gear drivetrain to drive all four wheels. Heavy-duty center driveshafts transfer power to heavy-duty steel ring and pinion gears front and rear. 4-wheel drive delivers maximum acceleration off road.
DIRECT DRIVE TRANSMISSION
Large steel spur and pinion gears provide the ultimate in toughness and durability. The Torque-Biasing Center Drive distributes power between the front and rear drives for maximum traction on any surface. There’s no clutch to slip, just instant power on tap when you need it. The entire transmission and motor remove as a single unit for easy maintenance.
SECURE BATTERY COMPARTMENT
A heavy-duty battery latch locks into place to secure batteries inside the compartment. An outer skid plate keeps debris out of the battery compartment and adds a second layer of security to help protect the batteries.
The versatile battery compartment accommodates single 4s LiPo packs or dual 2s or 3s LiPo packs. A rugged battery strap locks into place to hold even the largest batteries securely. The strap attaches firmly to the frame so there are no clips to lose.
FIXED BATTERY CONNECTORS
Fixed battery connectors make battery installation a breeze. The innovative design allows a range of single and dual-battery configurations to be used.
SOLID REAR AXLE
The unlimited desert race chassis’ unique solid rear axle design combines with the 4-link geometry to eliminate torque twist. It puts 6s power to the ground like nothing else, tracking arrow straight while accelerating and then rotating on demand for effortless on-throttle power slides. The authentic true-scale driving dynamics challenge your skill behind the wheel in fun and exciting new ways.
BFGOODRICH® TIRES AND WHEELS
Aggressive replica BFGoodrich® KR3 tires ride on tough 17mm hex Desert Race wheels (Fox•) or licensed Method® Racing wheels (RIGID•) with bright beadlock rings. The tires are scale replicas of the 40 inch tires used on the top trucks in the desert.
REALISTIC SIDE PLATES
Realistic chassis side plates (tin work) mount directly to the roll cage for true Pro-Scale realism. Functionally, they add structural rigidity and help keep debris out of the cockpit Remove the body and the desert race chassis looks even more amazing and realistic
The highly detailed interior with driver figures enhances the realism to the point that you might think you are looking at a real truck while driving. Switches, radios, safety gear, shifter, navigation…it’s all there!
MOLDED BODY DETAILS
From bumper to bumper, beautiful precision-molded details continue the Pro-Scale theme. The replica brake calipers and discs, floor jack with handle, batteries, fans, oil cans, fire extinguishers, and shock reservoirs provide the perfect scale touches.
Like a true desert race truck chassis, two spare wheels and tires are mounted on the rear frame. Identical to the other four, each is fully functional and ready to mount. The spare driveshaft mounted to the frame is not just for looks. It is a functional spare for installation on the truck if needed.
PROTECTIVE SKID PLATES
Integral to the inverted tub chassis, tough skid plates keep out debris and protect vital vehicle components. The two-piece design includes a separate door for the battery compartment that snaps in and out of position in just seconds.
Impact absorbing front and rear bumpers soak up the hits to protect the chassis and provide rigid support for the fixed body.
FIXED GEAR MESH
Proper gear mesh is critical with high-torque 6s power systems. A thick aluminum motor plate with reliable fixed-pin gear mesh settings are used for perfect alignment.
DUAL BELLCRANK STEERING
Built for the rigors of desert racing, fixed-length steering links are mounted to dual bellcranks with an integrated servo saver for precise, reliable steering.
A heavy-duty, splined driveshaft channels power to the front differential while rear power is transferred via a fixed-length aluminum and steel driveshaft. The realistic fixed-length driveshaft provides superior strength, reduces driveline lash, and lowers rotational mass for improved response.
TORQUE-BIASING CENTER DRIVE
The Torque-Biasing Center Drive distributes power between the front and rear axles for maximum traction on any surface. There’s no clutch to slip, just instant power on tap when you need it.
REALISTIC SWAY BAR
The cantilever sway bars are actuated by pushrods for precise control and realistic performance and tuning.
NEW VXL- 6S ESC WITH TELEMETRY
Fortified to handle extreme 6s LiPo power, the VXL-6s speed control flows current to the motor through Maxx Cable wiring with large 6mm connectors. LED status lights keep you fully informed on the ESC’s status and a heavy-duty fan keeps temperatures under control. The high-tech VXL-6s speed control provides real-time telemetry using the Traxxas Link app while retaining Traxxas’ easy one-button programming simplicity.
2200kV BRUSHLESS MOTOR
The 2200kV brushless motor transforms 22+ volts of LiPo power into 50+ mph speed and desert shredding torque for the ultimate in Pro-Scale performance.
WATERPROOF METAL GEAR SERVO
The digital 2075X metal-gear servo provides precise input and powerful torque. It’s fully waterproof to make all-weather adventures a reality and it’s further protected from damage underneath the tough skid plates.
TQi RADIO SYSTEM
The fully featured Traxxas TQi 2.4GHz radio system delivers the superior speed, precision, and control required for the Desert Racer’s immersive driving experience. The transmitter is Traxxas Link enabled, making it easy to pair a smartphone with the optional #6511 Wireless Module. The Traxxas Link app opens up a whole world of tuning options and also displays real-time telemetry from the ESC.
WATERPROOF FROM THE START
Patented Traxxas innovation seals out the water so that the fun doesn’t end in water, snow and mud. Dirty truck? Just hose it off. The ESC, servo and receiver box are all fully waterproof.
