This is the Traxxas Summit VXL 1/16 scale 4WD Electric Monster Truck with a TQ 2.4GHz 2-ch radio, VXL-3m ESC, and a Velineon 380 Brushless Motor included. Barely as tall as a sole tire on the original 1/10 scale Traxxas Summit, the new 1/16 scale Summit VXL will make you forget all about its fun and super convenient size, while its screaming brushless horsepower, massive suspension travel, and 4-wheel drive traction tackle impossible terrain and turn "no way" into "no problem."

With the included TQ 2.4GHz radio system you simply switch on and drive. There aren't any channels or frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. The TQ's sleek lines are enhanced by an internal antenna that is impervious to damage and its ergonomic design is comfortable for all-day driving. To customize the controls, the transmitter's factory servo directions can be easily reversed using the TQ's simple programming system.

The 1/16 scale Traxxas Summit VXL is built on the proven innovation of the 1/16 scale Slash VXL 4WD and 1/16 scale E-Revo VXL models and dialed in with a multi-terrain setup for exceptional versatility and fun. Long-wheelbase rear suspension arms put an extra 10mm between the axles for superior stability. The unique inboard suspension has been equipped with long-travel rockers for maximum ground clearance and traction in rough terrain. New Geode 2.2" chrome rims hold its Canyon AT tires with the same aggressive tread pattern as the "big" Summit to deliver tenacious off-road traction.

The VXL-3m speed control and Velineon 380 motor were built specifically for Traxxas 1/16 scale models and represent the latest in brushless technology. Fully LiPo compatible rated for 6-12 NiMH cells and with low-voltage detection for 2S and 3S packs, this potent, powerful combo gives the Summit VXL blistering top speed and precise throttle control. Traxxas' patent-pending Training Mode lets new drivers hone their skills at 50% throttle. When they're ready, full power and 40+mph is unleashed with a touch of the EZ-Set button.

Summit VXL looks ready for anything because it is ready for anything! The patent-pending sealed receiver box houses a Traxxas 2.4GHz receiver and can accept aftermarket receivers as well, without compromising the Summit VXL's waterproof properties. Fully waterproof electronics to keep the fun rolling through water, mud, and snow while lesser trucks stay on the bench. The new VXL-3m electronic speed control and high-torque, digital micro servo are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom to go places other cars wouldn't dare to venture.

The 1/16 scale Traxxas Summit VXL is fully assembled with a TQ 2.4GHz radio system, painted and decaled body, Velineon brushless power system, pre-glued tires, and detailed instructions. A Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery and charger are also included, making the Summit VXL truly Ready-To-Race. Designed specifically for the high-power needs of the Velineon brushless system, the potent Power Cell pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas exclusive High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run.
