Ground Shipping Items

Some RC Planet's products can only be transported under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only, and cannot be shipped outside of the US. These products include:

  • Non-Water Based Paint and Paint Thinner
  • Petroleum-Based Oil
  • Aerosol Type Products
  • Traction Compounds
  • Tire and Body Cleaners
  • Epoxy / Accelerators / Debonder

The US Postal Service will not transport ORM-D items, and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.


For All Shipments: Special labeling requirements are needed to safely transport any Lithium products. Certain large Lithium Batteries will always require HazMat handling and will only ship via Fedex. If you would like to know more about FedEx and the safety precautions taken when transporting Lithium Batteries, please refer to the FedEx guidelines.

International Shipments: Lithium Batteries are regulated as HAZMAT (Hazardous Material) products and can be dangerous if not packaged properly for transportation. In smaller quantities, Lithium Batteries can be shipped via DHL without applying a HAZMAT fee. If you'd like to ship more than 2 Lithium Batteries, a HAZMAT fee will be applied for transportation. Please note that DHL only allows transportation of HAZMAT / Dangerous Goods to specific countries, some of which have limited service areas.

The US Postal Service prohibits international mailing of Lithium Batteries, as well as electronic devices that contain Lithium Batteries. These new regulations also prohibit shipments to or from Army, Fleet, and Diplomatic Post Offices. Because of these regulations, no US Postal Service shipping options will be available during checkout.

Domestic Shipments: Both FedEx and the US Postal Service are available as shipping carriers for most Lithium Batteries and electronic devices containing Lithium Batteries. Please note that the US Postal Service has a limit of three batteries per shipment; you can refer to the Domestic Mail Manual for further information.


Fuel is classified as a "flammable" liquid. RC Planet can transport limited quantities of flammable liquid under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only. For larger quantities of fuel (Example: case quantities), it must be transported under HAZMAT. Transporting as HAZMAT means that the amount of fuel is considered hazardous and will be subject to shipping by Ground services, including a HAZMAT fee for the special transportation. Fuel cannot ship outside of the US.

Please note that the US Postal Service does not transport Fuel and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

Rocket Motors

Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets are classified as »Toy Propellant Devices« and can only be transported through Surface Mail with the US Postal Service's Parcel Post. FedEx does not transport Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets. Please note that FedEx will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

International Shipping Restriction Batteries:

Due to circumstances and regulations that are beyond RC Planet's control, batteries cannot ship outside of the US when using the United States Postal Service as the shipping provider. However, RC Planet can ship batteries internationally using DHL International, but the quantity cannot exceed a total of 2 batteries with a capacity of 5000mah maximum. Unfortunately we are currently unable to ship this item to APO/FPO addresses and apologize for the inconvenience.

Reviews for Traxxas Rustler XL-5 with ID Technology TRA37054-1

R Robert


My dad and I like this car

I bought this for my father. He picked it out. I don't like how the front wheels have too much play but we plan on building this all custom. It is very fast for a brushed system fun to drive. I recommend getting something to protect the motor or wheelie bar

A Heather


Great Car!!

My brother bought this car and he Loves it!!
It goes great on road and off road, we don't drive it in tall grass because it can overheat,
and it could be really bad.
(which is probably what happened to H William)
Besides that it is a great car! I would recommend it! Its very fast and fun!

A Paul


Awesome CAR

This is a great car. best 189 dollars i ever spent!
I would totally recommend this car to anyone!
The other rating by H William is not true, i have never had any engine problems.
He probably had a bad engine or drove it in tall grass and overheated it. not Traxxas's fault.
My sisters have a slash and a stampede and my car is way faster, if you want a fast car, get this one! :)
The slash and stampede are awesome too.

H William

Questions and answers about Traxxas Rustler XL-5 with ID Technology TRA37054-1

From Customer | 2017-06-14 17:02:41

What do the consider the rustler to be? The slash is a short course I believe and in another question you said that the two are very similar, so would that mean the rustler is just an open wheeled short course truck?


The Rustler is considered to be a Stadium style truck, they are similar because they use a lot of the same parts on both models. The differential and gear box are exactly the same along with shocks, steering parts, hub carriers, etc. Rustler has larger tires and is a bit wider so it will handle a bit better, the short course has a larger body that seems to be able to take a beating and protects it a bit more. Both are fun so you can't go wrong with either.

From Customer | 2017-03-14 15:22:42

What brushed motor upgrade would you recommend?


Honestly the stock 12t is about the best you can get until you convert to a brushless motor and ESC.

From Customer | 2017-02-18 20:44:19

Can you us lipo battery with the regular wrestler and if so which battery would you recommend for fastest speed.


Yes, you can use a lipo pack in the Rustler XL-5 but you are limited to 2s packs only. We would recommend the Traxxas 5800mAh 7.4-volt 2-cell 25C LiPo with iD Auto Battery Identification part # TRA2843X.

From Customer | 2017-01-26 20:24:57

If i put a castle creations sidewinder sct with a 23t pineon and a 90t spur and also a 5000mah 3s lipo how fast will it go?


According to the "R/C Vehicle Speed Calculator" this set up would get you about 38 mph. If you went with a 83T spur then you could get about 42 mph according to the "R/C Vehicle Speed Calculator". We have heard of people using a 35/76 gearing on 3S and getting about 62mph.

From Customer | 2016-09-25 13:10:33

Does this car come with the remote control or 'radio system'? I can't determine from the product if it does. Can you run 2 of these side by side - does the remote control have different channels? If it doesn't include the remote which one would you recommend for the Traxxas Rustler XL-5? Thank you.


Yes these do come with the transmitter and receiver pre installed. Since they run on the 2.4 Ghz you can run multiples at the same time with out any issues. Once the receiver and transmitter are bound then each time you turn them on it will scan all frequencies and lock on an open one. All you need for this is 4 AA batteries for the transmitter and you are set.
