This is the Traxxas Bandit VXL Brushless Electric Ready-to-Race RC
Buggy with Traxxas Stability Management (TSM), the TQi Link-Enabled
Radio System and flashy new color schemes (battery & charger sold
separately – See recommended battery and charger combos below).
The Bandit VXL comes equipped with the Velineon Extreme Brushless
Power System, capable of 45+MPH with a 7-cell NiMH battery, or 70
+MPH just by changing the pinion gear and running a 3S lipo battery. As
always, this Traxxas vehicle is on the cutting-edge of power, performance,
and value.

The Bandit VXL brushless buggy is a low-slung, lightweight speed machine
that's rocket fast on pavement and rips incredible roost off-road. Get a
couple of Traxxas Bandits together and the race is on. These buggies are
drivers' machines that will put your skills to the test with mind-blowing top
speed and lightning quick handling response.

Traxxas Stability Management

The Bandit VXL expands the Extreme Sports Buggy Legacy with even more
power than you ever thought possible. The addition of Traxxas Stability
Management lets your Bandit VXL unleash all the power that is engineered
into your off-road warrior. Arrow-straight acceleration and braking are
now at your fingertips, by simply adjusting the Multi-Function Knob on
your transmitter. Hit the throttle, brake true, and charge hard into the

TSM helps provide straight ahead full-throttle acceleration on slippery
surfaces, without fishtailing, spinouts, and loss of control. High speed
cornering and control is also made possible as TSM makes corrections in
the background for you, without intruding on your fun, or creating
unexpected side effects.

Everything is waterproof and Traxxas-tough as you?d expect.

TSM Benefits

· TSM makes Traxxas vehicles easier to drive, particularly on loose

· TSM makes driving more fun by allowing the driver to accelerate
harder and drive faster with much greater control

· TSM works to stabilize vehicles over rough surfaces as the gyro
effect of the spinning front tires continues to ?steer? when the
vehicle is in the air

· TSM dramatically improves braking performance, preventing the
vehicle from spinning out

· TSM allows faster cornering speeds

· TSM never restricts throttle (or fun!)

· TSM allows the driver to accelerate harder when exiting a turn

· TSM works invisibly in the background

· The driver maintains their connected feel with the vehicle

· The amount of TSM assistance is fully adjustable

· TSM can be turned off or adjusted from the TQi Transmitter

· TSM is fully compatible with Traxxas Link

· TSM does not require any complicated set up or instructions.

Out of the box, the Velineon Brushless Power System is optimized to put
down the tire-melting horsepower, neck-snapping speed, and precision
throttle response you expect from brushless. Most of all, it's brushless done
the Traxxas way: wicked fast and easy to use. Just plug it in for an instant
rush of power and adrenaline.

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. With the Bandit VXL, your
battery selection determines your speed and skill level. Velineon accepts
the widest range of battery types, including 3-cell Lithium Polymer packs
(3S LiPo packs). These packs pump out over 11 volts of power for intense,
skill level 5 speeds beyond 70mph! Nothing else even comes close. Built-
in low-voltage detection in the VXL-3s Electronic Speed Control
conveniently helps you maintain your LiPo battery packs in top condition.

The World's Most Advanced Ready-To-Race Radio System
Bandit VXL is equipped with the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race
radio system. The all-new Traxxas TQi arrives with a full complement of
tuning features and offers the unbeatable convenience of “no channels, no
crystals” 2.4GHz technology – but that's just the beginning. Automatic
model recognition instantly recalls your settings for up to 30 Traxxas Link-
enabled models. Just switch on and drive, no naming or “model memory”
settings required. Power up the transmitter and the model you want to
drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! The new
TQi 2.4GHz transmitter is 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.
TQi's ergonomic case design provides all-day driving comfort, and the
unique internal antenna contributes to its sleek, modern look.

Traxxas Link Wireless Module Compatible
The TQi's most important new feature may already be in your pocket. The
TQi can be equipped with an Traxxas Link Wireless Module (#6511, sold
separately ) that turns your Android device, iPad,
iPhone, or iPod touch (sold separately) into a powerful tuning tool for your
Traxxas model. The full-color display combines with the free Traxxas Link
App to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user
interface that unlocks the mysteries of optimizing your radio system for
ultimate vehicle control. Traxxas Link also opens the door to telemetry
capability when you add optional sensors to your model.

Sealed Electronics Extend Your Driving Fun
Traxxas shocked enthusiasts with the release of their exclusive watertight,
sealed electronics that provide the freedom to drive where you want to
drive through water, mud, snow, and other wet-running conditions that
wouldn't have been possible before. Now the Traxxas Bandit VXL is
Ready-To-Race with this waterproof technology. The VXL-3s speed
control, high torque servo, and mini receiver are sealed against the
elements giving you the freedom go places you might not have thought
possible. It opens up a whole new world of adventure and fun. Wet muddy
tracks are no problem for the Bandit VXL.

The Velineon 3500 Brushless Motor is precision-matched for use in the
1/10th scale Bandit, delivering the perfect balance of brutal horsepower
and efficiency. The sensorless design works with the sophisticated
circuitry in the VXL-3s Electronic Speed Control for smooth starts and
precise control, without the need for additional sensors and wiring. Since
there are no brushes or commutator to cause friction and wear, Velineon
brushless power is always fast, run after run.

The Velineon VXL-3s forward/reverse electronic speed control simplifies
brushless technology with easy operation that gives you all the control you
need for maximum fun. Quickly choose from 3 drive profiles in exactly the
same manner as other Traxxas electronic speed controls (such as the XL-
5). Profiles include: Sport, Race, and Training Mode (patented). Training
Mode limits full-throttle power to 50% allowing young or new drivers to
safely develop their control skills before unleashing the full-throttle
capability of the Velineon system. Bandit VXL's performance can be
tailored for drivers of any age and experience. High-frequency transistors
and advanced circuit design deliver incredibly smooth and refined throttle
control. High-current capacity (320 amps peak) and two-stage thermal
protection frees you from motor limits.

The Bandit VXL is equipped to handle serious horsepower with features
such as the advanced Revo-Spec Torque-Control slipper clutch. The
patent-pending design delivers smooth operation, precise adjustment, and
consistent traction control, even when tortured with massive amounts of
horsepower. New upgrades to the Bandit VXL include high-grade hex
hardware, precision metal turnbuckle links with heavy-duty rod ends, and
larger 5x11mm rubber-sealed ball bearings at the wheels. The transmission
is beefed-up as well with tough new steel gears. With so much speed
available, the Bandit VXL is equipped with an all-new digital high-torque
steering waterproof servo (#2075) for lightning-quick steering response
and confidence-inspiring precision.
