VELINEON BRUSHLESS POWER SYSTEM
The Velineon Brushless Power system takes the guesswork out of enjoying the benefits of world-class brushless power. The system components work together as an optimized package, engineered from the start to deliver the ultimate in efficiency, speed, and run time..
STEEL MAGNUM 272™ TRANSMISSION
Bandit's Magnum 272 transmission is assembled with new all metal gear internals riding on ultra-smooth sealed ball bearings. Combined with the smooth 48-pitch gears, power is delivered quietly to the durable telescoping U-joint driveshafts. The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks.
OIL-FILLED ULTRA SHOCKS
Ultra Shocks™ deliver silky-smooth performance and precise damping control with racing-style clip-on spring pre-load spacers. High-tech X-ring seals provide superior sealing and reduced friction.
PRE-GLUED TIRES ON BLACK-CHROME WHEELS
Bandit VXL comes with stylish 2.2 Tracer™ black-chrome five-spoke wheels. Performance-designed Alias™ 2.2 rear tires feature a step-pin design and come pre-glued from the factory. Alias ribbed front tires offer superior directional control, the tire combination provider sure-footed traction on a variety of off-road terrains.
No assembly is required. Bandit VXL is Ready-To-Drive®, right out of the box.
Traxxas High-Current Connector
Bandit VXL's Velineon Brushless Power System features the new Traxxas High-Current Connector. Designed to handle high-current applications, the Traxxas Connector effortlessly funnels your battery's total power to the electronics to keep things running cool and at full capacity.
Maxx® Cable 12-Gauge
This super-flexible, high current, low-resistance 12-gauge wire acts like a series of giant pipes, flowing energy in and out of the electronic speed control. The Traxxas Connector combined with Maxx cable is a better engineered solution for extracting all the power your battery has to give.
|Revo-Spec Torque-Control Slipper Clutch
The Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction material and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heart and provide consistent traction control.
Heavy-Duty Hub Carriers & Steering Blocks
Bandit VXL features all new ball bearing front steering blocks and rear hub carriers. They utilize large 5x11mm ball bearings for long-term precision performance, smooth operation, and increased durability.
Adjustable Steel Turnbuckles
Factory fitted, heavy-duty steel turnbuckles allow camber and toe tuning. Bandit VXL is completely adjustable right out of the box to fine tune handling agility and high-speed performance. Captured rod ends provide unmatch durability.
High-performance bellcrank steering system minimizes bump steer to increase cornering stability.
|Included Optional Pinion Gear
Out of the box, the installed 26-tooth pinion gear is just right for all-around, on of off-road action. Installing the included optional 28-tooth pinion gear boosts the speed to 45+mph! The Bandit VXL reaches a scorching 70+mph top speed using an accessory 33-tooth pinion gear and a 3-call 11.1V Lithium-polymer battery pack (sold separately).
Planetary Gear Differential
The composite Traxxas planetary gear differential now features a steel ring gear with a nylon housing for long life. It uses hardened steel internal gears for maximum strength during rigorous off-road bashing. This type of differential requires virtually no maintenance and its efficient design puts maximum tire-shredding torque to the wheels.
|Digital High-Torque Steering Servo
A race truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance. An included Traxxas digital high-torque, ball bearing steering servo comes standard for precision control, quick response, and unmatched torque. It has over 50% more torque then the 2075 standard servo and it's 25% faster! That's 125 oz-in torque, 0.16-second speed!
The aggressive Bandit VXL's body comes fully trimmed and painted. The Bandit VXL ProGraphix body is available in red, blue, and silver. Traxxas' ProGraphix bodies are the hottest looking bodies around and are only available on Traxxas Ready-to-Race® models.
Yokes with Telescopic Driveshafts
Bandit VXL features drive yokes which are designed to provide maximum durability to withstand the extreme power of the Velineon Brushless Power System. The slider driveshafts are extremely durable, and they allow greater articulation for increased suspension travel.
Securely Mounted Electronics
The ESC and receiver are screwed to the chassis for ultimate mounting security. There's no servo tape to loosen over time with dirt, heat, and collisions.
|Powder Coated White Springs
New white springs feature a race-tuned spring rate for more responsive handling and the long-lasting, white powder coated finish sets Bandit VXL apart from the pack.
Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks™
Bandit VXL's oil-filled Ultra Shocks utilize X-ring technology for a perfect seal and super-smooth performance. They are fully tunable with a wide range of oils, springs, and pistons. Features include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and spring clips to precisely change the ride height and spring pre load. They can be renewed in minutes with our inexpensive rebuild kits.
Pro-quality, high-grade, metric hex-drive hardware is used throughout for extra strength, and easy maintenance and repair. The black-oxide rust-resistant finish provides a high tech look and feel.
|Suspension Tie Bar
The composite tie bar strengthens the front bulkhead and suspension arms for increased durability.
