Horsepower and torque, jumps and curves: The Traxxas Rustler VXL doesn’t just have it all—it does it all, too. That’s because this 1/10th-scale stadium truck is equipped with a gutsy brushless motor, oil-filled Ultra Shocks, watertight electronics, and Revo-spec Torque Control. And because this ready-to-drive car is controlled by the 2.4-gigahertz Traxxas TQi transmitter—which can be synced up with your Android or Apple iOS device—all the high-flying action is in your hands.
Note: You won’t be able to choose the color of car you receive. The color—black, blue, red, or silver—will be chosen at random as we fulfill each order. At checkout, you’ll have the option to add an accessories bundle, which includes an 11.1V 4200mAh hardcase LiPo with Traxxas plug, an e3 2–4 cell LiPo charger, a volt meter, a LiPo bag, and a 3S balance extension (+ $75).
Equipped with the Velineon 3500 brushless motor, which works with the car’s circuitry to give you superior control, the Traxxas Rustler VXL can reach out-of-box speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. And with the addition of a pinion gear, sold separately, the Rustler can achieve breakneck speeds of more than 70 miles per hour. You’ll also have three drive profiles to choose from: Sport, Race, and Training, each of which caters to varying experience levels.
The two-channel Traxxas TQi offers an advanced design that allows it to be paired with your Android or Apple iOS device through a simple app. Powered by four AA batteries, this long-range transmitter offers visual access to real-time telemetry data, customizable dashboards, steering and braking rate, and more. And it’s all programmable with just two buttons. Perhaps best of all, the Multi-Function knob allows you to control Steering Sensitivity (Expo), Throttle Sensitivity (Expo), Steering Percentage (Dual Rate), Braking Percentage (Dual Rate), or Throttle Trim. Once you’ve downloaded the app for your phone, you’ll have access to all this, plus the ability to manage the profiles of up to 30 different Traxxas models, meaning your entire lineup of Traxxas RC cars can be controlled with one device.
