In 2005, DC Shoes co-founder Ken Block entered his first pro rally race. At the end of the season, he was named Rally America Rookie of the Year. Today, Ken Block is one of the most recognized names in motorsports. Beyond his success in the Rally America and World Rally Championship series, Block is best known for his gymkhana skills, as over 85 million online video views will attest. In his specially-prepared Ford Fiesta Gymkhana car, Block combines laser-precise driving with tire-smoking fury to perform seemingly impossible moves. His on-road acrobatics require a vehicle that can deliver intense power through all four wheels, with the responsiveness and "feel" that only a finely tuned machine can provide. You can experience the challenge and satisfaction of executing that perfect slide between the pylons with the Traxxas radio controlled Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta. This officially licensed special-edition race replica features the unmistakable 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 tire-spinning brushless horsepower thread the needle through the course with scalpel-like precision. The fun lasts for hours as you perfect the throttle and steering inputs to make each tire-blistering slide more perfect than the last.
Revo Innovation, Tuned For The Street
The Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta utilizes the award-winning Revo's F-1 inspired, rocker-actuated suspension system which has been expertly engineered for 1/16 Gymkhana driving right down to the 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 the Torque Control slipper clutch, planetary gear differentials, and Traxxas' proven telescoping u-joint drive shafts. The suspension and driveline are fully integrated into the compact chassis. Intricately molded as a single piece, the chassis balances strength, weight, function and style in an impressive achievement of packaging and performance optimization that could only come from Traxxas.
Velineon Brushless Speed and Power
The Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta's VXL-3m speed control and Velineon® 380 motor represent the latest in brushless technology and shred the competition with class-leading speed and power. 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. It's never been so easy to go so fast! Fully LiPo compatible with low-voltage detection for 2S and 3S packs and rated for 6-12 NiMH cells, the potent, powerful Velineon power system gives you precise throttle control and blistering top speed. Patent-pending Training Mode™ lets new drivers hone their skills at 50% throttle. This allows young or new drivers to safely develop their control skills before unleashing 50+mph speed with the touch of the EZ-Set® button. Big speed requires big horsepower, so the Gymkhana Fiesta carries the largest motor in its size category. The Velineon 380 features high-speed ball bearings, Sintered rotor, Neodymium magnets, and Gold plated 3.5mm connectors. It all adds up to 50,000 rpm of pure power and track-searing speed!
Waterproof Electronics For No-Limits R/C Excitement
Just like Ken Block, the Gymkhana Fiesta doesn't slow down for rain; the waterproof servo and o-ring-sealed receiver box let you keep on racing, even in wet weather that parks lesser cars on the bench. The patent-pending sealed receiver box houses Traxxas' latest 2.4GHz Traxxas Link receiver and can accept aftermarket receivers as well, without compromising the model's waterproof properties. The new VXL-3m electronic speed control and high-torque digital micro servo are sealed against the elements to give you total driving freedom.
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. Designed specifically for the high-power needs of the Velineon brushless system, the potent Power Cell pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas' exclusive High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run. Traxxas backs the Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta and all of our products with top-notch support that is second to none.

Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta, Fully assembled, Ready-To-Race®,
with TQ™ 2.4GHz High Output radio system with Traxxas Link™, Velineon® 380 motor, VXL-3m ESC, 7.2 volt NiMH battery & charger, and ProGraphix® painted body.
The Next Generation of Traxxas 2.4GHz Technology
Traxxas introduces the next generation of 2.4GHz radio system performance and it's available now with the Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta. The new Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz computerized High Output radio systems are equipped with superior Direct Sequence Spread-Spectrum (DSSS) technology, fully programmable features, and the convenience of patent-pending Traxxas Link™ automatic model recognition. Forget about crystals and frequency conflicts! The transmitter's easy-to-use design provides the instant, worry-free, turn-it-on-and-go driving fun you expect from Traxxas, while also delivering a full compliment of pro-level tuning features for those who wish to explore the expanded tuning possibilities. The Multi-Function knob on the face of the transmitter can be programmed to control a variety of functions such as steering exponential, steering and braking dual rate, and throttle trim. Access is through a simple menu tree controlled by a two-button interface. Other tuning options include end point adjustment, servo reversing, and sub trim adjustment. Top-level performance is what you expect from Traxxas, so the new TQ 2.4GHz High Output pumps out a strong, clear signal for optimum range. The 13ms frame rate and near zero latency results in instant steering and throttle response along with precise, smooth control.
The exclusive Traxxas Link™ automatic model recognition software is a breakthrough in "model memory" that makes it easier than ever to enjoy multiple Traxxas Link enabled models without juggling transmitters or scrolling through complex menus searching for model names. Each time the transmitter is bound to a new receiver, it saves that receiver in its memory, along with all the model settings assigned to that receiver. The next time that transmitter and any previously bound receiver (up to 20!) are switched on, the transmitter automatically recalls the settings for that receiver. Just power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! Up to 20 Traxxas Link enabled receivers and 20 Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz High Output transmitters can be cross bound together making it possible to grab ANY transmitter and ANY vehicle from the group, switch them on, and start driving. It's perfect for when you have lots of vehicles you want to drive but don't want to have to keep up with which transmitter belongs to which model. Traxxas Link does it for you, seamlessly behind the scenes.
5-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security
The TQ 2.4GHz High Output's micro receiver fits easily into any vehicle, and features dual channel-1 outputs for easy installation in vehicles with dual steering servos—no Y-harness necessary! The integrated LINK button makes it fast and easy to bind the receiver, and the two-color LED indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and convenience. Traxxas Link allows the receiver to recognize up to twenty TQ 2.4Ghz Traxxas Link enabled transmitters—just switch on and drive. In the event of signal loss due to an accidental switch-off or depleted batteries, the receiver will automatically return the throttle to neutral and hold the last commanded steering position. The Fail Safe programming is built-in and does not need to be set or activated.

Gymkhana-Tuned, F1-Inspired Suspension
The Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta's innovative linkage-based suspension geometry increases spring and damping rates in proportion to cornering forces for perfectly balanced handling. The design is competition-proven by the 8-time National Champion Revo, and is specially configured for on-road action with new stiffer springs and piston specs for firmer damping and roll-resistance. The laydown shocks also lower the chassis' center of gravity for lightning-quick turning response.
