This is the Traxxas Rustler VXL 10th scale stadium truck with TQi Traxxas link enabled, 2.4GHz radio system and Traxxas stability managment, includes iD Technology.
Rustler VXL combines Traxxas Stability Management with Velineon extreme brushless horsepower and the proven fun and durability that have made Rustler the number-1 selling electric stadium racer. The new Velineon Brushless Power System launches Rustler VXL to new heights with speed potential that reaches beyond 70mph! Hardcore, wheel-standing acceleration completely blows everything else away. Out of the box, Velineon is optimized to actually deliver the tire-melting horsepower, benchmark speed, and precision throttle response you expect from brushless. Best of all, it's brushless done the Traxxas way: wicked fast and easy to use. There's no tricky programming to figure out or a glossary of new vocabulary to learn. Just plug it in and it works.
Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) makes it possible to experience all the extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered into Traxxas models by making it much easier to control the vehicle on common slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow. Punch it off the line and TSM goes to work sensing the vehicle’s direction and making steering corrections to provide straight-ahead fullthrottle acceleration without fishtailing, spinouts, and loss of control. TSM also works during cornering, first making intuitive corrections to maintain the vehicle’s line, then hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. Braking is dramatically improved as TSM works to keep Traxxas trucks arrow straight until they come to a complete stop. Traxxas TSM. The result is driving faster, with more ease, and having more fun. In fact, the driver may not even realize how much TSM is helping until it is turned off and their driving skills are tested without it!
Note: The DuraTrax Element 3900kV Brushless System is an ideal, affordable upgrade for this vehicle.

This is a pretty fun car! Love all the different options, SUPER fast, plenty of room for mods. Wish it came with a wall charger, but really nothing to complain about. Super satisfied, would buy another if I had the $
Recommended to buy: Yes
what is the charging speed of this rc
Is should take about 45 minutes with the stock DC charger and the stock NiMh pack for a complete charge.
What battery do you recommend for a longer period drive?
If you have the ID charger part number TRA2970 then we would highly recommend the Traxxas 5800mAh 7.4-volt 2-cell 25C LiPo with iD Auto Battery Identification part number TRA2843X.
Does the Traxxas Rustler come assembled or unassembled? If unassembled, what things would I need to assemble?
Yes this truck does come assembled and all items required to operate it are included.
What temperature should my ESC and motor not exceed? What motor fan works on the Rustler VXL?
The motor should not exceed 180 degrees and the ESC should be about 155. For a motor fan (INTT8074BLUE) should be sufficient.
What motor fan would fit the Rustler VXL?
The only one that we see available is (INTT8074BLUE).
