The Traxxas Bandit VXL Brushless Buggy sets new standards and defies expectations with a level of power that has to be seen to be believed. Powered by the Velineon Brushless Power System, the Bandit VXL has such brutally sharp acceleration that you may need to adjust settings on the included 2.4Ghz TQi radio to keep this amazing buggy under control! Just FYI, the TQi radio system has a long list of tuning features so you can make any adjustment you can imagine and dial in your Bandit to your driving style and preferences. And, you can vary your set-up based on what you’re doing or on what level you're at. There are 3 available drive profiles: Sport, Race, and Training. The training mode is perfect for beginners as it limits the throttle to 50% total power output, giving new racers a chance to learn to drive and handle their buggy before making it jump, fly, and zip down the straight-aways. Plus, the new Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) allows you to utilize all of the extreme power and acceleration that was engineered into the Bandit VXL by making it easier to control on slippery surfaces, loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow. Punch it off the line and TSM senses the vehicle’s direction and makes steering corrections to provide straight-ahead, full-throttle acceleration without spinouts, fish-tailing, and loss of control.

But let’s get back to the incredible power and speed of the Bandit VXL. How fast do you want to go? – 40, 50, 60 . . . 70+mph? No matter what your speed preference, the Traxxas Bandit VXL can handle it. With only a 2-cell 7.4V LiPo, you can easily break speeds of 40mph. Make the jump to 3-cell 11.1V LiPo power and you unleash a beast that is just a thrill to watch and experience. The combination of mind-blowing speed and responsive handling makes this a real driver’s machine.

The main 2 components of the Velineon Brushless Power System are its motor and ESC. The Velineon 3500 Brushless Motor uses a sensorless design that receives input from the technologically sophisticated circuitry in the VXL-3s ESC to give precision punch on the throttle and smooth operation run after run. With such a perfectly optimized package, you don’t have to try and match up aftermarket motors and electronic speed controls to try and find the best combination. Traxxas has already done the work for you, so you can spend more time racing and enjoying the pure adrenaline rush of driving the Bandit VXL.

The Bandit VXL is a ready to run model that just requires 4 AA alkaline batteries for the transmitter. Charge your battery and you’re ready to race in no time. Get your Traxxas Bandit VXL and get the best Traxxas prices on the Internet at RC Hobby Explosion today!

Nice machine! Quick delivery. September 9, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ft. Walton Beach, FL United States  
The car is very fast and responsive, fun to operate.  RCHobbyExplosion was very helpful and called to say that they had a newer model in stock that was a big improvement over the one we ordered.  Thanks for the heads up and a great deal on a good RC.
