  • Extreme Brushless Horsepower!
  • Top Speed: 70+mph!
 

The Rustler® VXL combines Velineon® extreme brushless horsepower with 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.

The Velineon Brushless Power system takes the guesswork out of enjoying the benefits of world-class brushless power. The system components work together as an optimized package, engineered from the start to deliver the ultimate in efficiency, speed, and run time. With the Rustler VXL, Your battery selection determines your speed and skill level. Velineon accepts the widest range of battery types, including 3-cell Lithium Polymer packs (3S LiPo packs). These packs pump out over 11 volts of power for intense, skill level 5 speeds beyond 70mph! Nothing else even comes close. Built-in low-voltage detection in the VXL-3s™ Electronic Speed Control conveniently helps you maintain your LiPo battery packs in top condition.

The quest for ultimate speed began with the battery connector. As today’s batteries store more and more energy inside their cells, traditional battery connectors became a roadblock, unable to deliver all the energy the battery is capable of outputting. The new Traxxas High-Current Connector and Maxx® Cable 12-gauge wire opens the door for unrestricted current flow.

The Velineon 3500 Brushless Motor is precision-matched for use in the 1/10th scale Rustler, delivering the perfect balance of brutal horsepower and efficiency. The sensorless design works with the sophisticated circuitry in the VXL-3s Electronic Speed Control for smooth starts and precise control, without the need for additional sensors and wiring. Since there are no brushes or commutator to cause friction and wear, Velineon brushless power is always fast, run after run.

The Velineon VXL-3s forward/reverse electronic speed control simplifies brushless technology with easy operation that gives you all the control you need for maximum fun. Quickly choose from 3 drive profiles in exactly the same manner as other Traxxas electronic speed controls (such as the XL-5). Profiles include: Sport, Race, and Training Mode (patent pending). Training Mode™ limits full-throttle power to 50% allowing young or new drivers to safely develop their control skills before unleashing the full-throttle capability of the Velineon system. Rustler VXL’s performance can be tailored for drivers of any age and experience. High-frequency transistors and advanced circuit design deliver incredibly smooth and refined throttle control. With the VXL-3s you have the flexibility to use conventional brushed motors, brushless motors, and sensored brushless motors. The VXL-3s auto detects the motor type for you. High-current capacity (320 amps peak) and two-stage thermal protection frees you from motor limits.

The Rustler VXL is equipped to handle serious horsepower with features such as the advanced Revo®-spec Torque-Control™ slipper clutch. The patent-pending design delivers smooth operation, precise adjustment, and consistent traction control, even when tortured with massive amounts of horsepower. New upgrades to the Rustler VXL include high-grade hex hardware, precision metal turnbuckle links with heavy-duty rod ends, and larger 5x11mm rubber-sealed ball bearings at the wheels. The transmission is beefed-up as well with tough new steel gears. With so much speed available, the Rustler VXL is equipped with an all-new digital high-torque steering servo for lightning-quick steering response and confidence-inspiring precision.

Revo®-spec Torque-Control™ Slipper Clutch
Revo technology is utilized to manage the increased power from the Velineon 3500 brushless motor. The Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction material and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent yet adjustable traction control. The semi-metallic friction material remains stable across a wide temperature range to provide smooth, linear engagement you can count on, run after run. Spur gears can be removed and replaced without altering the slipper adjustment.

Included Optional Pinion Gear
The Rustler VXL reaches a scorching 70+mph top speed using an optional 31-tooth pinion gear, 76-tooth spur gear, and a 3-cell 11.1V Lithium-polymer battery pack (sold separately).

Installing the included optional 28-tooth pinion gear opens the door to breakneck 60+mph speeds!

Magnum 272™ Transmission
The Rustler VXL's Magnum 272 transmission is assembled with new all metal gear internals riding on ultra-smooth sealed ball bearings. Combined with the smooth 48-pitch gears, power is delivered quietly to the durable telescoping U-joint driveshafts. The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks.

Planetary Gear Differential
The composite Traxxas planetary gear differential now features a steel ring gear with a nylon housing for long life.  It uses hardened steel internal gears for maximum strength during rigorous off-road bashing. This type of differential requires virtually no maintenance and its efficient design puts maximum tire-shredding torque to the wheels.

New Yokes with Telescopic Driveshafts
Rustler VXL features new drive yokes which are designed to provide maximum durability to withstand the extreme power of the Velineon Brushless Power System. The slider driveshafts are extremely durable, and they allow greater articulation for increased suspension travel.

Powder Coated White Springs
New white springs feature a race-tuned spring rate for more responsive handling and the long-lasting, white powder coated finish sets Rustler apart from the pack.

Securely Mounted Electronics
The ESC and receiver are screwed to the chassis for ultimate mounting security. There's no servo tape to loosen over time with dirt, heat, and collisions.

ProGraphix® Bodies
The new low-profile, aggressive Rustler VXL's body comes fully trimmed and painted. The rear wing mounts to the body using countersunk aluminum hardware for unmatched strength. The Rustler VXL ProGraphix body is available in red, blue, black, and silver. 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 Ready-to-Race® models.

Digital High-Torque Steering Servo
A race truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance. An included Traxxas digital high-torque, ball bearing steering servo comes standard for precision control, quick response, and unmatched torque. It has over 50% more torque than the 2055 it is replacing and it's 25% faster! That's 125 oz-in torque, 0.16-second speed!

Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks™
Rustler's oil-filled Ultra Shocks utilize X-ring technology for a perfect seal and super-smooth performance. They are fully tunable with a wide range of oils, springs, and pistons.
