This is the Traxxas Rustler VXL 10th scale stadium truck with TQi Traxxas link enabled, 2.4GHz radio system and Traxxas stability management, includes iD Technology. The Rustler VXL rolls out of the box Ready-To-Race with the advanced TQi 2.4GHz 2-channel radio system and powerful Velineon Brushless Power System. Battery and charger sold separately.
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. 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) is as beneficial as the most modern electronic stabilizers without interfering with your driving adventures. Experience all the extreme power, acceleration and speed that was built into your RC. TSM senses the vehicle’s direction and makes steering corrections to provide full throttle acceleration without fishtailing or spinouts. When cornering, TSM intuitively corrects the vehicle’s line for faster exit speeds. TSM even improves braking by keeping the truck arrow straight until you reach a complete stop, making it easier than ever before to manage common slippery surfaces such as smooth concrete, loose dirt, and even snow and ice. The TSM has been designed to work in the background without limiting your throttle.
The Velineon brushless motor and electronic speed control work in tandem to deliver optimal speed, efficiency, and run times. Because Velineon accepts a wide range of battery types (including 3S LiPo packs), you are able to adjust your Bandit VXL's speed and skill level through your battery selection. Cruise at 30+mph using a 7.2V NiMH pack, or use a 3S LiPo pack to reach a blistering 65+mph! The choice is yours with the Bandit VXL.
Note: The DuraTrax Element 3900kV Brushless System is an ideal, affordable upgrade for this vehicle.
