The Traxxas EZ-Start® system brings the power, convenience and safety of push-button electric starting to the TRX 2.5, 2.5R, or 3.3 Racing Engines. Simply plug in the hand-held control unit, push the button, and the EZ-Start system automatically heats the glow plug and the lightweight, compact on-board drive spins the engine. Traxxas' exclusive Smart Start™ technology monitors critical starting functions, automatically sensing and diagnosing potential problems for trouble-free engine starting every time.
The EZ-Start® requires a fully-charged, 7.2-volt, 6-cell battery pack and a charger (not included). A single charge should provide a full day of starting.
Power for the EZ-Start system comes from a 7.2-volt rechargeable battery pack installed in the hand-held control unit.
The engine glow plug is heated automatically by the EZ?Start system, eliminating the need to keep up with a separate glow plug igniter.
The voltage to the glow plug is kept constant, regardless of the load placed on the starter by the starter motor.
The “Glow Plug” LED (light emitting diode) on the control unit indicates the condition of the glow plug.
The “Motor” LED indicates the status of the EZ-Start electric starter motor.
The cush drive mechanism in the drive unit prevents damage to the gears caused by engine kickback.
Smart Start™ protection circuitry prevents damage to the motor by cutting power if the load on the motor or other electronics exceeds safe limits.
