Stampede? has always been the first name in monster truck fun, but with Velineon? brushless power on board , the ground-pounding, high-speed wheelie popping antics are completely over-the-top. The included wheelie bar keeps the altitude in check but with this kind of power, the wheelies don?t stop just because your going over 50mph. If you have you're nerve, and the skill, the fun is just getting started! With a top speed of over 65mph, the Velineon Brushless Power System is designed to let you explore the outer limits of what?s possible with brushless. Chances are you?ve never experienced throttle response and speed like this in a monster truck. Tough and unbelievably fast, Stampede is the ultimate play truck that?s always at hand, ready for instant R/C fun. No matter what kind of R/C racing you?re into, a Stampede VXL belongs in your arsenal.
Stampede was the first high-performance monster truck and now Stampede VXL is setting new, previously unthinkable speed benchmarks. The world of electric monster trucks will never be the same!
Out of the box, the Velineon Brushless Power System is optimized to put down the rock-crushing torque, massive horsepower, and precision throttle response you expect from brushless. Most of all, it?s brushless done the Traxxas way: brutally fast and easy to use. Just plug it in and satisfy your need for extreme horsepower.
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 Stampede VXL, your battery selection determines your speed and skill level. Velineon accepts the widest range of battery types, including the latest 3-cell Lithium Polymer packs (3S LiPo packs). These packs pump out over 11 volts of power for intense, skill level 5 speeds beyond 65mph! 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 Stampede, 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 full of muscle, 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. Stampede 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 Stampede 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 Stampede 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 its huge monster truck tires, the Stampede VXL benefits most from the all-new digital high-torque steering servo. 125 in-oz of torque deliver lightning-quick steering response with confidence-inspiring precision.
The Stampede VXL is 100% Ready-To-Drive? right out of the box with the TQ? 2-channel radio system, and the Velineon Brushless Power System. Just take the Stampede VXL out of the box, charge up a battery, and go have fun! Stampede VXL is the ultimate thrill ride that is perfect for monster bashing or wheelie-popping madness. Hot new Stampede VXL graphics combine with the black-chrome wheels for a mean monster truck stance.
