The Fastest Electric Stadium Truck
You Can Buy - 70+MPH!!!

Newest Version!

The Traxxas Rustler® VXL is the perfect combination of unbelievable brushless power with the excitement and toughness that are the reasons why the Rustler has been the best-selling stadium truck year after year. When it comes to just pure raw speed, the Velineon Brushless Power System takes the Rustler VXL to places that are just mind-blowing fast. With a 3-cell LiPo battery, speeds over 70mph are well within reach. Plus, the new Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) allows you to utilize all of the extreme power and acceleration that was engineered into the Rustler 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.

You’ll be amazed at the powerful acceleration that gets the Rustler to those lightning-fast speeds. Even straight out of the box with only an 8.4V NiMh battery, the Rustler VXL can hit speeds over 40mph. Plus, setting up the ESC is easy. It can be programmed with just the touch of a button for whatever size and type of battery you prefer.

Speed Chart

So exactly how does the Rustler VXL produce so much amazing power? Well, it starts with something very simple but often overlooked – the battery connector. Traditional connectors just don’t have the ability to transfer energy efficiently due to resistance and poor design. This resistance keeps the battery’s full potential from being delivered to the motor and results in unnecessary heat build-up. But the special Traxxas High-Current Connector is specially designed for today’s high-output power systems that run on high-capacity NiMh and LiPo batteries. With the Traxxas High-Current Connector, power loss due to resistance is a thing of the past.

Also responsible for the Rustler’s scary-fast speeds are the 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. And, you can vary your set-up based on what you’re doing or on what level you're at. The 3 drive profiles available are: 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 truck before making it jump, fly, and zip down the straight-aways.

If you’re going to have all of that power, you have to have a transmission and drive-train that can handle the extreme loads. The Rustler VXL is perfectly equipped with features such as its advanced Revo-spec Torque-Control slipper clutch, added steel gears to the transmission, rigid chassis, larger rubber-sealed ball-bearings, and precision metal turnbuckle links. Other sturdy features are the high-grade hex hardware used throughout and a digital high-torque steering servo for super-quick steering response.

Of all the upgrades to the Traxxas Rustler VXL, the newest and coolest may be the addition of the all-new TQi telemety-ready crystal-free radio system. The TQi is a Ready-to-Race 2-Channel 2.4Ghz Radio System that is compatible with their new wireless module (part #6511) that can turn your iPad®, iPhone®, or iPod touch® into an amazing source of real-time telemetry data as well as being a powerful tuning tool for your Traxxas truck! With so many features built into one truck, the choice should be easy. Get your Rustler VXL today and get the best Traxxas prices on the Internet at RC Hobby Explosion!

They made it happen! July 17, 2015
Reviewer: Rebecca Thompson from Castle Rock, CO United States  
I needed my gift to be shipped to a different location than I was in.  RC Hobby worked through everything with me and was able to make it happen.  Even though it was the busy holiday season, my son will have his Christmas wish because RC Hobby took the time to help me out!  Thank you so much!!

Traxxas Rustler VXL RTR July 17, 2015
Reviewer: Rexford Agonoy from Honolulu, HI United States  
Received product with left rear shock disconnected so there was shock oil all over RC car when I opened box and I don't have any shock oil so I'm forced to go buy some off eBay and wait another 2 weeks before I can even use this RC. Other than that everything else is excellent!

Update: got an email from RC Hobby Explosion saying to call Traxxas, and Traxxas offered to ship me some free shock oil. 5 stars for both companies! Great Cust. serv.! Will be ordering the brushless E-maxx or the Stampede 4x4 VXL from u guys soon!
