The Traktion Drive is here! Finally, a cost effective, compact and lightweight slipper system that provides instant power while protecting your drivetrain and improving traction. Tekno took the revolutionary Electri-Clutch system and expanded it into the most flexible power delivery option available for 1/8th scale electric vehicles. Now Tekno RC has EVERYONE covered!

If you want direct drive and motor brakes - CHECK! If you want clutch and mechanical brakes - CHECK! If you want direct drive and mechanical brakes - CHECK! All this with better traction and drivetrain protection. Here's how it works - the Elektri-Clutch system works similar to a traditional nitro clutch where the springs 'PULL' the shoes to the center.

The Traktion Drive employs a new clutch shoe design coupled with a different spring design to 'PUSH' the shoes into the clutch bell, so it's engaged at 0 RPM! This equals 0 lag! Slip amount is adjusted by the thickness of the springs. Use lighter springs (0.8mm, 0.9mm) for better traction on loose tracks. Use thicker springs (1.0mm, 1.1mm) for higher grip tracks.
