A New Category Of Off-Road Excitement
sets the standard for power, performance and innovation. Now, for the first
time, all the speed, quality and capability you expect from Traxxas is available
in 1/16 scale with the new 1/16 E-Revo VXL. At 14 inches long, E-Revo VXL is
about half the size of the 1/10-scale E-Revo. But don't call it a "mini"—this is
a whole new category of R/C performance and fun that no mere mini-model can
match. Beneath the factory-finished polycarbonate shell, you'll find the winning
suspension technology of the seven-time National Champion Traxxas Revo®,
screaming Velineon® brushless-motor power, and the convention-busting innovation
of the E-Revo.
Proven Traxxas Innovation
No detail was overlooked in our mission to bring all the capability,
durability, and excitement of Traxxas' award-winning models to 1/16 scale for
fast, affordable R/C fun. The E-Revo VXL is built on the race-winning,
track-proven innovation of the Revo and E-Revo models. The standard-bearer of
design excellence, the Revo's F1-inspired, rocker-actuated suspension has been
expertly adapted to 1/16 scale with all its functionality and performance
intact, right down to the oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks. This superior
technology provides capability, performance, and tuning functions at the
absolute pinnacle of truck design. The suspension and electronics are fully
integrated into the semi-monocoque chassis design that stunned the world when it
debuted with the E-Revo. Intricately molded as a single piece, the chassis
balances strength and weight, function and aesthetics, convenience and
performance to far surpass the standards of the "mini" category. In 1/16 scale,
it is an even more impressive achievement of packaging and performance
optimization that could only come from Traxxas, The Fastest Name In Radio
Some mini-models are "fast for a mini." That's not good enough for Traxxas.
The 1/16 E-Revo VXL is just plain fast. At 30+mph with the
included 6-cell NiMH battery, E-Revo VXL is nearly twice as fast as most mini
models, and faster than most electric RTR trucks of any scale. Install a second
6-cell battery to unleash the Velineon Brushless Power System's full fury, and
E-Revo VXL jumps to over 50mph—all with proven-safe NiMH packs. No other RTR
truck, regardless of scale, makes it so easy and affordable to experience this
level of high speed and wheelie-popping power.
Velineon Brushless Power
and built specifically for Traxxas 1/16 scale models, the
VXL-3m speed control and Velineon® 380 motor represent the latest in brushless
technology. Fully LiPo compatible with low-voltage detection for 2S and 3S packs
and rated for 6-12 NiMH cells, this potent, powerful combo gives E-Revo VXL
precise throttle control and blistering top speed. Patent-pending Training Mode™
lets new drivers hone their skills at 50% throttle. When drivers' ed is through,
full power and 50+mph is unleashed with a touch of the EZ-Set® button. Big speed
requires big horsepower, so E-Revo VXL and Slash 4WD VXL carry the largest motor
in the "mini" category. The Velineon 380 is built to the same no-compromise
specs as the Velineon 3500 found in Traxxas' 70+mph 1/10 scale VXL models.
High-speed ball bearings. Sintered rotor. Neodymium magnets. Gold plated 3.5mm
connectors. It all adds up to 50,000 rpm of pure power and track-searing speed!
Waterproof Electronics For
No-Limits R/C Excitement
a hallmark of Traxxas vehicles, E-Revo VXL is the latest model to be equipped
with fully waterproof electronics to keep the fun rolling in water, mud and snow
while lesser cars stay on the bench. The patent-pending sealed receiver box
houses Traxxas' newest 4-channel micro receiver and can accept aftermarket
receivers as well, without compromising the 1/16 VXL models' waterproof
properties. The new VXL-3m electronic speed control and high-torque, digital
micro servo are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom go places
other cars wouldn't dare to venture.

Ball Suspension 1/16 E-Revo VXL features pivot-ball suspension for smooth suspension
articulation and easy adjustment. Rubber-sealed ball bearings ward off dirt and
debris as they increase precision and reduce friction, and the oversized 8x12mm
inboard bearings maximize durability. For extra security, the heavy-duty axle
carriers are designed so the universal-joint axles' crosspins are captured by
the inner bearings—another example of Traxxas' attention to every detail.
Driveshafts 1/16 E-Revo VXL is fully equipped with telescoping, universal-joint axles
for optimum drivetrain efficiency and maximum power transfer. The

home. Traxxas' innovative, ground-breaking waterproof receiver box puts 1/16 E-Revo
VXL in a league of its own. The antenna and servo wires route neatly through a
special watertight seal (patent pending). To protect the receiver from dust and
water a custom shaped blue O-ring seals the receiver box. Thanks to the unique
design, the receiver can be removed for service and even aftermarket receivers
can be used, without losing the sealing properties of the box.
Channel Micro Receiver
Traxxas' 4-channel micro receiver provides reliable reception as it saves
weight, and dual channel-1 inputs allow you to install dual steering servos
without the need for a bulky Y-harness. The receiver is fully
protected from the elements by 1/16 E-Revo VXL's waterproof receiver box.
Waterproof Steering Servo Small but powerful, the 1/16 E-Revo VXL's 2080 servo cranks out 41.7
oz.-in. of tire-turning torque with digital circuitry for responsive
control—even in water, mud and snow, thanks to its o-ring-sealed waterproof
Tires & Wheels
Each corner of the 1/16 E-Revo VXL is equipped with soft-compound Talon tires
that are mounted and pre-glued on impressive 53mm Gemini chrome wheels. 12mm
mounting hexes open the door to additional wheel and tire combos to tune
traction for specific surfaces—even foam tires for carpet racing.
1/16 E-Revo VXL already blows the rest away with its 30+mph out-of-the-box speed
using the included 6-cell Power Cell NiMH battery pack—but that's just the
beginning of 1/16 E-Revo VXL's speed story. The chassis' dual battery
compartments let you add a second NiMH battery pack and Traxxas series connector

Artfully designed intakes and exits allow cooling air to circulate through the
battery enclosures to lower the temperature of the batteries for maximum
run-time and "punch." Nothing was overlooked in carrying over all the design
innovation of the E-Revo into 1/16 scale.
With over 50mm of suspension travel, 1/16 E-Revo VXL offers the most
articulation possible for bump and jump handling capability that leaves other
trucks far behind. Tunable progressive damping rates, independent ride height
adjustment, and the absolute highest level of control for any situation put
Traxxas 1/16-scale models far ahead of the pack.
1/16 E-Revo VXL's super-smooth oil-filled shocks damp the suspension and
maintain control no matter how rugged the terrain. They are fully tuneable and
include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and threaded spring pre-load
collars for quick ride height adjustments.
A defining feature of the E-Revo, expertly executed in 1/16 scale—the unique
Revo®-Spec suspension geometry provides true progressive rate performance that's
light over the small bumps and tightens when compressed to resist bottoming out
over large jumps. Spring and damping rates increase automatically for small-bump
compliance without compromising shock-absorbing performance for big hits.
The 1/16 E-Revo VXL's fully trimmed and painted ProGraphix body is available in
Red, Blue, Black, and Silver themes. Decals are also applied to save you time
and get you driving just minutes out of the box. Traxxas' ProGraphix bodies are
the hottest looking bodies around and are only available on Traxxas
