Traxxas has just announced their new coming model - the Rally VXL 1/16th Scale Brushless Rally Racer. The new model is estimated to arrive @rcMart at late October. Don’t forget to check our RSS section for updated news.
The throttle is wide open. All four tires howl as they slide across the asphalt. You finesse the input, work the steering wheel. Now you’re perfectly balanced between slip and grip as you carve through the turn sideways, emerging from clouds of tire smoke to scream on to the next corner. This is asphalt rally racing gymkhana style, and the Traxxas Rally VXL is the only R/C vehicle designed to give you the experience of hanging it out in the turns and powering down the straights with the perfect blend of speed, power, and traction. The specially tuned suspension and tire compounds let you ride the slip angle with thrilling precision, putting your skills to the test as you master the art, right in your own driveway. The Velineon® brushless power system combines with 4-wheel drive to give the Traxxas Rally VXL road-ripping muscle that rivals the full-scale racers. Officially licensed BFGoodrich® rally tires deliver authentic style and performance, and the tough, wide-body design features cutting-edge graphics that could only come from Traxxas. Get ready for a new kind of R/C driving excitement with the Traxxas Rally VXL.
Revo Innovation, Tuned for the Street!
The Traxxas 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 ball-bearings 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.
The Traxxas Rally VXL shreds the competition with class-leading speed and power. Right out of the box, the Rally thrills with 30+mph on the included 6-cell NiMH battery. Install an optional, second 6-cell battery to unleash the Velineon Brushless Power System’s full fury, and the Rally jumps to over 50mph. That kind of blacktop-searing speed is usually reserved for expensive LiPo power, but the Rally reaches its full performance potential with affordable, proven-safe NiMH packs. It’s never been so easy to go so fast!
Rally VXL includes the Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz High Output radio system with Traxxas Link™. This new system offers the unbeatable convenience of “no channels, no crystals” 2.4Ghz technology, and the long-range security of a high-output signal—but that’s just the beginning. The new, patent-pending Traxxas Link technology stores settings for up to 20 Traxxas Link-enabled models, with no naming or “model memory” settings required. Just power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! The new TQ 2.4GHz High Output radio is also fully adjustable; steering and throttle end points can be set precisely, and the Multi-Function knob can be programmed to control Steering Sensitivity (Expo), Throttle Sensitivity (Expo), Steering Percentage (Dual Rate), Braking Percentage (Dual Rate), or Throttle Trim.
Velineon Brushless Power
Built specifically for Traxxas 1/16 scale models, the VXL-3m speed control and Velineon® 380 motor represent the latest in brushless technology. Fully LiPo compatible with low-voltage detection for 2S and 3S packs and rated for 6-12 NiMH cells, this potent, powerful combo gives the Rally precise throttle control and blistering top speed. Patent-pending Training Mode™ lets new drivers hone their skills at 50% throttle. This allows young or new drivers to safely develop their control skills before unleashing 50+mph speed with the touch of the EZ-Set® button. Big speed requires big horsepower, so the Rally carries the largest motor in the “mini” category. The Velineon 380 features high-speed ball bearings, Sintered rotor, Neodymium magnets, and Gold plated 3.5mm connectors. It all adds up to 50,000 rpm of pure power and track-searing speed!
Waterproof Electronics For No-Limits R/C Excitement
Just like full-size rally racers, the Traxxas Rally doesn’t slow down for rain; the waterproof servo and o-ring-sealed receiver box let you keep on racing, even in wet weather that parks lesser cars on the bench. The patent-pending sealed receiver box houses Traxxas’ latest 2.4GHz Traxxas Link receiver and can accept aftermarket receivers as well, without compromising the model’s waterproof properties. The new VXL-3m electronic speed control and high-torque digital micro servo are sealed against the elements to give you total driving freedom.
The Traxxas Rally VXL is fully assembled with TQ radio system, Velineon brushless power system, painted and decaled body, pre-glued tires, and detailed instructions. A Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery and charger are also included, making the Rally truly Ready-To-Race. Designed specifically for the high-power needs of the Velineon brushless system, the potent Power Cell pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas’ exclusive High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run. Traxxas backs the Rally and all of our products with top-notch support that is second to none. A staff of skilled representatives is on-hand to answer your questions via phone, website, or e-mail. Unmatched parts support allows the Rally to be serviced with parts and support from thousands of hobby dealers worldwide.
