Traxxas 1/8 Funny Cars Make Debut For NHRA Fans



Latest from the NHRA:

NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing fans around the country have been awaiting a John Force Racing RC Funny Car model since the new, unique, and energetic partnership between Traxxas and John Force Racing was announced in early January of this year. Last Friday, fans at the 3rd annual NHRA Four-Wide Nationals got their first peek at the four JFR Traxxas Funny Cars during a photo shoot beside the Traxxas fan experience zone.

Traxxas revealed last week a collection of fully assembled, ready-to-race Traxxas RC Ford Mustang Funny Cars. The new models run 70-plus mph and are designed to convey realistic effects of the Funny Car class. The Funny Cars have all the current logos and paint schemes from the 2012 JFR Ford Mustang Funny Cars.

“I’m very excited about the new Traxxas RC Funny Cars. I know this is something that our fans have been hoping for and looking forward to since the beginning of the season, and so have I. Traxxas really outdid themselves on these, and I think they are going to be a huge hit. I can’t thank Traxxas and Mike Jenkins enough for creating these for our fans,” said John Force. “I’ve always loved RC cars since I was little, so now to see my Traxxas Ford Mustang Funny Car come together as an 1/8-scale version that everyone can race is pretty cool. I wish I would have had one of these when I was a kid!”

Sold separately is an authentic, portable, and affordable drag race timing and scoring system. The DTS-1 unfolds and turns smooth asphalt into your own personal dragstrip. Dual beams on the starting line allow competitors to pre-stage and stage with laser-precise accuracy with the option to set up either a Pro or Sportsman Tree.

These things are just too cool. I can't wait to see them at RCX in a couple of weeks.
