New from Traxxas:

Exciting Velineon® Brushless Performance and Gymkhana Rally Thrills!

Get ready for a new kind of R/C excitement! The new Traxxas 1/16 Rally VXL is built for gymkhana-style on-road action with a lowered stance, tough wide-body styling, and officially-licensed BFGoodrich® rally tires. The Rally VXL is the only R/C vehicle designed to give you the experience of hanging it out in the turns and hustling down the straights with the perfect blend of speed, power, and all-wheel drive traction. The specially tuned suspension and tire compounds let you ride the slip angle with thrilling precision, drifting the car sideways through turns and putting your skills to the test as you master rally-style driving right in your own driveway. The Velineon® brushless power system combines with 4-wheel drive to give the Traxxas Rally asphalt-shredding muscle to rival full-scale racers and a driving experience that’s like nothing else in R/C.

The Rally VXL utilizes Revo’s F-1 inspired, rocker-actuated suspension system which has been expertly engineered for 1/16 Gymkhana racing right down to the oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks and rally-tuned progressive-rate springs. The all-wheel drive system rides on full ballbearings and delivers smooth efficient power through the Torque-Control™ slipper clutch, planetary gear differentials, and Traxxas’ proven telescoping u-joint drive shafts. The suspension and driveline are fully integrated into the compact chassis. Intricately molded as a single piece, the chassis balances strength, weight, function, and style in an impressive achievement of packaging and performance optimization that could only come from Traxxas.

Extreme Velineon Brushless Power & Waterproof Electronics

The Rally VXL’s high-power Velineon® 380 brushless motor is the largest in its class and uses high-strength Neodymium magnets, a sintered rotor, and high-rpm ball bearings for lasting performance. The VXL-3m speed control features the latest low-resistance/high-cur rent FETs and Traxxas’ exclusive High-Current Connector for ultra-efficient power flow. Built-in Low Voltage Detection makes the Velineon V XL-3m ready for 2S and 3S LiPo packs. Add a Traxxas Speed Connector and a second inexpensive Series 1 Power Cell NiMH battery pack for instant access to 50+ mph speeds. Fully waterproof electronics are a Traxxas exclusive that opens the door to new driving and sliding a dventures on rain-soaked asphalt.
