From Traxxas:

The Traxxas Ford® Fiesta® ST Rally VXL dominates the track with agile handling, AWD traction, and the 60+ mph speed of the legendary Velineon® brushless power system. Rally’s officially licensed clipless body and high-grip gravel tires offer the full rally racing experience. Additionally, Fiesta ST Rally now comes standard with Traxxas’ Extreme Heavy Duty Upgrade parts for game-changing strength and durability.


Fiesta ST Rally VXL’s Velineon 3s brushless power system delivers the ultimate in efficiency, speed, and run-time with precise and responsive throttle control. Rally VXL transforms 3s LiPo power into lightning-fast speed and tire-melting acceleration. This is brushless performance done the Traxxas way: brutally fast and easy to use.


Rally’s factory-installed Extreme Heavy Duty Upgrade parts replace key drivetrain and suspension components with beefed-up parts made for ultimate strength and durability. From the HD shock towers to the steel wheel hubs, this is the strongest driveline ever offered in a Rally.


Rally’s innovative clipless body features secure mounting with quick and easy removal. No posts, no clips—just drop the body onto the chassis and snap it into place for a secure hold. When it’s time to change the battery, release the side tabs and lift up to access the chassis in just seconds.


Engineered for maximum strength, Rally VXL comes factory-fortified with a full complement of Extreme Heavy Duty driveline and suspension parts designed to work together as a complete package. Rally’s heavy duty overhaul sets a new standard for durability at skate parks, racetracks, and backyards.

Dual-Profile Rear Wing

Fiesta ST Rally VXL’s prominent dual-profile rear wing is optimized to reduce drag while providing downforce for high-speed stability. The injection-molded wing features multiple reinforced mounting points for increased durability in case of rollovers.

Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks

Rally VXL’s oil-filled Ultra Shocks utilize X-rings for a perfect seal and super-smooth performance. Adjust the ride height and pre-load on the white powder-coated springs with the included spacer clips. Ultra Shocks are fully tunable with a wide range of oils, springs, and pistons available.

Hex Hardware

Rally’s hex-drive hardware provides a more positive and secure connection than other fasteners. The black-oxide coating provides a rust resistant high-tech look and feel.

Long-Travel Suspension

Fiesta ST Rally has huge amounts of seemingly bottomless, ultra-plush suspension travel to swallow up jumps and delivers incredible control. Performance-optimized suspension components provide maximum articulation without binding or interference.

Extreme Suspension Components

Rally VXL comes factory outfitted with Extreme Heavy Duty Upgrade parts for ultimate strength and durability. The axle carriers, C-hubs, and steering blocks are beefed up with more material and stronger construction.

Velineon Power System

The waterproof Velineon VXL-3s speed control is packed with technology to deliver maximum power. A large heat sink, integrated on/off switch, and three programmable drive profiles top the feature list. The sensorless Velineon 3500 kV motor delivers extreme performance with nearly zero maintenance. Ultra high-temperature neodymium magnets, high-speed bearings, and a precision, 4-pole balanced rotor deliver smooth running and long life.

Clipless Body

Rally uses a rugged clipless body latching system for secure mounting and easy removal. The latching system incorporates an internal body cage that greatly strengthens the body for long life. The body comes pre-painted and cut with decals already applied.

5-Channel Receiver with Fail-Safe Security

In the event of signal loss due to an accidental transmitter switch-off or depleted batteries, the receiver automatically returns the throttle to neutral and holds the last commanded steering position. The fail-safe programming is conveniently built-in and does not need to be activated.

Traxxas High-Current Connector

The patented High-Current Connectors funnel maximum power to the vehicle’s electronics. High-Current Connectors also provide the quickest, safest charge for Traxxas batteries.

Rugged Battery Hold-Down

An innovative battery hold-down features a tough latch for solid locking action to keep batteries secure no matter how wild the action gets.

Waterproof Receiver Box

Rally’s waterproof receiver box keeps the receiver safe and dry while still allowing easy access for maintenance. The antenna and servo wires route neatly through a patented water-tight seal for true all-weather fun.

Perfect Weight Bias

Each component on the Rally VXL chassis is positioned for optimal weight distribution and space utilization. The result is perfect weight bias for neutral handling precision. The bulk of the mass is distributed down the centerline of the chassis for smooth, stable cornering.

Steel 4 mm Turnbuckles

Rally VXL uses modified versions of the heavy duty steel 4 mm turnbuckles developed for the Slash® 4X4. Broad flat sections make toe and camber adjustments easy with the included wrench. The fully captured rod ends take a beating and won’t pop apart during rigorous off-road pounding.

Digital High-Torque Waterproof Servo

Rally VXL’s extreme speed and quick reflexes require a steering servo that’s both strong and fast. The 2075 digital high-torque servo features 125 oz-in of torque and ball bearings for powerful and precise steering authority.

Dual Bellcrank Steering with Servo Saver

Rally’s dual-bellcrank design pivots smoothly even in the harshest conditions. An integrated cam-type servo saver protects the steering servo from crash impacts without sacrificing steering precision.

High Approach Angle Bumper

Rally’s smooth under tray reduces snags while the high approach angle front bumper allows the vehicle to clear driveways and expansion joints without raising the overall height of the vehicle or its low center of gravity.

Race Inspired Tires and Wheels

Rally’s unique directional tire tread pattern is captured in high-grip rubber for the ultimate bite on or off the pavement. Equal parts style and strength, the rugged rally wheels feature a 12-spoke rally replica design in the same offset as Slash 4X4 wheels.

Heavy Duty Slipper Clutch

Rally’s slipper clutch features high-temperature aluminum pads for superior power handling. The slipper clutch delivers equal power distribution front to rear for instant throttle response through the drive system and aggressive four-wheel-drive grip.

32-Pitch Gears

Designed from the start to handle big brushless horsepower, Rally VXL’s driveline uses a rugged spur gear with large 0.8 module (32-pitch) teeth for reliability no matter how much power you pour on.

Extruded Aluminum Driveshaft

A one-piece extruded aluminum driveshaft is both strong and lightweight. Internal splines fit directly onto the input shafts of the front and rear drive assemblies. The driveshaft runs straight and true for ultra-smooth driveline operation.

Maxx-Duty Driveshafts

Rally’s Maxx-duty® driveshafts with beefed-up U-joints are built to handle brushless power without breaking a sweat. Large 6 mm axles key into the included steel wheel hexes for unmatched strength and durability.

Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings

Maximizing speed requires as little friction as possible. Rally VXL rides on precision rubber-sealed bearings for super low-friction performance and maximum protection in dusty environments.

Sealed Steel-Gear Differentials

Rally VXL’s heavy duty front and rear oil-filled differentials utilize steel-gear internals for maximum durability. Silicone gaskets and X-ring seals allow you to tune the amount of locking action by varying the viscosity of the fluid inside the differentials.
