Traxxas Updates Many RTR Models with LiPos, Telemetry, And More

Nov 02, 2012 1 Comment by

Traxxas has announced that many of their models have now been updated with Power Cell LiPo batteries, a 2/3-Cell LiPo Balance Charger (#2935), and some models even received their new TQi transmitter with Docking Base as standard equipment. Check out all the details in the press release below:

VXL Models

Designed from the start for high-voltage, high-capacity LiPo packs, Traxxas’ VXL brushless models now include genuine Traxxas Power Cell LiPo batteries—the only LiPos certified to deliver the full performance potential of Traxxas’ VXL brushless models. The Rustler, Bandit, and Stampede VXL each include a 3300mAh Power Cell pack; Slash VXL includes a 4200mAh battery. Each LiPo-equipped model arrives with Low Voltage Detection activated to assure maximum battery life and prevent over-discharging. Charging care is just as important to LiPo life and performance, so a 2-Cell / 3-Cell LiPo Balance charger is also included. Just plug the battery’s balance plug into the charger and you’re on the way to another run—no programming or settings required. Every time the pack is charged, the cells are charged individually to precisely balance voltage for optimum performance, run time, and cycle life. Experience the ultimate in electric horsepower with the only models designed for LiPo power from the start, and genuine Power Cell LiPo technology on board.

This heavy-duty setup gives E-Maxx and E-Revo wheel-lifting torque and brutally quick acceleration on the way to over 65mph—and you can prove it! Add your iPhone or iPod touch (sold separately), and the Traxxas Link application (free on the Apple App store) displays speed, temperature, voltage, and rpm data on a customizable, recordable virtual dashboard. E-Maxx and E-Revo arrive Ready-To-Race with all the necessary telemetry sensors installed. Traxxas Link also lets you adjust the TQi’s pro-level features quickly and easily with its intuitive, high-def, touch-screen interface. While you hone performance with Traxxas Link, recharge the Power Cell LiPos with the included LiPo Balance Chargers for a perfect charge every time, no setting or programming required.

Slash 4X4 VXL and Stampede 4X4 VXL

Designed from the start for high-voltage, high-capacity LiPo packs, Traxxas’ Slash 4X4 and Stampede 4X4 models now include genuine Traxxas Power Cell LiPo batteries—the only LiPos certified to deliver the full performance potential of Traxxas’ 4X4 Velineon-powered brushless models. The LiPo-equipped models arrive with Low Voltage Detection activated to assure maximum battery life and prevent over-discharging. Charging care is just as important to LiPo life and performance, so a 2-Cell / 3-Cell LiPo Balance charger is also included. Just plug the battery’s balance connector into the charger and you’re on the way to another run—no programming or settings required. Every time the pack is charged, the cells are charged individually to precisely balance voltage for optimum performance, run time, and cycle life.

Traxxas Spartan

With its included Power Cell LiPo 5000mAh LiPo packs on board, the Traxxas Spartan is the world’s fastest Ready-To-Race boat right out of the box. The howling fury of 50+ mph across the water with 6S LiPo power will make even the most insatiable, power-hungry enthusiasts jump up and take notice. The clean, modern hull design is built up in layers for maximum rigidity where it matters most; the transom and ride pad. The integrated battery trays securely hold a variety of battery configurations, including the largest high-capacity LiPos. The optimized rudder configuration carves amazing full-throttle turns. Everything about Spartan means business: the super-rigid, 36-inch deep-V hull; smooth, cable drive efficiency; innovative water-cooling system; and precision aluminum and stainless steel drive controls.

5707L Spartan with VXL-6s Marine speed control, (2) Power Cell LiPo 5000mAh 3S batteries, (2) 2S / 3S LiPo Balance Chargers, 540XL brushless motor, TQi 2.4GHz radio system, Ready-ToRace® MSRP $599.99

Summit

There’s only one way to improve the unstoppable Summit: give it a pair of Power Cell 5000mAh 7.4-volt LiPo batteries for even more rock-busting torque and extended run-time on the trail! Summit scored the title of “Best Innovation” from the readers of RC Car Action Magazine, and earned the trophy with new technology never before seen in R/C. Equipped with the first-ever remote locking differential system (patent pending), Summit lets you lock and unlock the front and rear differentials right from the transmitter. In high gear, Summit blazes down the track or trail and attacks jumps at speed as its long-travel, Revo-base suspension soaks up the harshest terrain.

When the trail ends in an impossible climb there’s no need to turn around; just drop the transmission into low gear for a super-low 70:1 gear ratio and lock the front and rear T-Lock differentials for maximum traction. Summit’s proven 16.8 volt EVX-2 waterproof speed control delivers massive torque through a powerful Titan 775 motor, and safeguards the included Power Cell LiPo batteries with Low Voltage Detection.

5607L Summit 4WD electric monster truck, Ready-To-Drive® with 4-channel radio system, (2) 5000mAh 2-cell LiPo batteries, (2) LiPo balance chargers MSRP $724.99
