By popular demand, the legendary Traktion Drive is back! This system gives your electric vehicle a ‘nitro feel’ and improves consistency by reducing the instant acceleration of modern electric systems. Traktion Drive employs a special clutch shoe and spring design to ‘PUSH’ the shoes into the clutch bell. So it’s engaged at zero RPM and has no lag but still provides some ‘give’ on hard acceleration or impacts. It’s extremely helpful on loose or rough tracks as the Traktion Drive will smooth the power delivery as the vehicle traverses through bumps. If you’re a nitro and electric racer, this system will make transitioning between the two vehicles easier as your electric vehicle will feel more like a nitro.
Slip amount is adjusted by using different diameter springs. Use lighter springs (0.8mm, 0.9mm diameter) for better traction (more slip) on loose tracks. Use thicker springs (1.0mm, 1.1mm diameter) on higher grip tracks. The Traktion Drive kit is compatible with our EB48 series buggies as well as most 1/8th scale electric vehicles that use a 5mm shaft. The adapter is light, made from hardened steel, spins true, and is easy to set up.
This system uses standard 3 shoe clutch bells, purchased separately. Please see the special requirements below.

I'm new here in Pensacola and I called around to a few places to find certain things for my car. And ended up here at kings. I was amazing by the amount of product they car. And the young man behind the counter was so helpful and polite. Me and my sone got what we need and found a few other great info that we really needed.
Thank y'all so much
I live in Texas and have used King's website for a few purchases now, and every time they make sure to get my order shipped as fast as possible. Every order I have received has been packed perfectly and securely. I highly recommend them!
Great experience! They had a rare item in stock. Packaged very well and shipped promptly. I will definitely order from them again.
I’ve ordered online and now I’ve been in person. Stellar service and very knowledgeable. Corey and the guys know and love what they do. I’ll be back next year for sure!
Great Products - got my RC Porsche from them - through their ebay store - fast shipment - well packed - great service. Very happy with purchase from King Cobra!
When into the shop on a whim with my son because I’ve been wanting to get back into RC cars. We ended up walking out with an Arrma Granite Mega by recommendation of Corey. He was a great help and answered all my questions. They only thing I was dissatisfied with was I asked about the run and charge time on the battery and was told about 20-30 minutes run time depending with about an hour to recharge the battery. The recharge time for the battery is about 3.5 hours with the charger that comes with the kit. The truck is a lot of fun, great to learn on and plenty fast for my 4 year old. I would recommend immediately buying another battery or upgrading to a LiPO battery and better charger.
I purchased an Axial SCX24 online. It was a quick and easy process, quick shipping, and the only place I could find with the one I wanted in stock! I'll definitely be using them again!
I have had such a wonderful experience with these guys. Over the last few weeks I have ordered an extremely large amount of product from them and I have been taken care of on each question I've asked and each concern that I've had. The real standout of the team so far, is Amanda (Mandie). I have been on the phone with her multiple times over the last few days because of a few little questions that I've had and she has gone above and beyond to help me every single time. I feel like this is a relationship that I will have with this company for a long time and look forward to doing business with them in the future.
These days, it's hard to find customer based businesses that take things seriously and these guys have it for sure. Excellent place and very trustworthy!
Great place!! My husband and I go there almost weekly, the staff is also very helpful. If you want a family feel atmosphere where they know you by name and always very helpful swing in and say hi you won’t regret it.
