Traxxas Deegan 38 Ford Fiesta ST Rally

Traxxas has introduced an all new 1/10th scale rally car platform with the Deegan 38 Ford Fiesta ST Rally. Featuring a brushed 550 motor and 2S LiPo compatibility, the Deegan 38 Ford Fiesta is a great basher on any terrain. Let's take a quick look!

Low Aggressive Stance. Fully Ready to Run

The all new Deegan 38 Ford Fiesta Rally ST features a Titan 12T 550 brushed motor, a TQ 2.4GHz transmitter, a 7-cell NiMH 3000mAh battery with Traxxas iD connector, and a 2056 high-torque steering servo. The included LX-5 speed control is designed for a 7-cell NiMH or 2S LiPo, and the shocks are oil filled with powder-coated progressive rate springs.

This is basically a Traxxas Rally VXL with the updated and licensed Deegan Ford Fiesta body and a brushed motor instead of the brushless VXL configuration. The ready to run configuration retails for $299.95 and is scheduled for release in late March.

I wonder why they didn't make it brushless? To keep price down maybe?

300 still seems like a lot for a brushed car

What exactly is "all new" about this platform? Looks like the same old Rally chassis to me that is roughly 3 years old and not one single improvement to the design/geometry that I can see... what am I missing?

Tires/paint scheme are hardly platform specific IMO

Yes, I guess you're right. It's a new offering from Traxxas even though the chassis is the same as I stated in the article. I'll be more mindful of using the word New on these news pieces. Thanks.

didn't mean to take a stab at you Matt, it's just marketing ploy (in general) that has somewhat annoyed me and I know Traxxas isn't alone in making claims of "All New" stuff which in reality isn't anything new... I kinda have a greater appreciation for the Tamiya "Re-released" stuff, that would be more appropriate where I think this Ford Fiesta is more like a re-re of the original Traxxas Rally... though I'm sure all the money Traxxas paid to get licensing to market the Fiesta wasn't cheap I just have a greater appreciation for redirecting some money toward actual product improvement. Otherwise it's like putting "lipstick on a pig" when the only changes are body/wheels.
