The Traxxas 1/16 Summit VXL is scaled down from its big brother the Traxxas 1/10 Summit which simply looks great. This bad boy isn’t all about looks, with capable speeds of 45Mph (72Kph) and goes 25Mph (40Kph) straight out of the box with no modification, now that’s fast! Great size, doesn’t take up too much space in the garage and is easy to transport.
Traxxas has designed the chassis so it can fit 2 batteries, you know what they say “more is better.” 2 batteries will give this beast unbeatable torque and speed, have you ever seen another ‘Mini’ sized car do a standing back flip? Well, the Traxxas 1/16 Summit can! (Skip to 0:17 in the video).
Hobbies Direct recommends using the Traxxas’s Patented Training mode as it limits the power output of the model to 50% which makes practising much easier and safer and is also a great idea when giving your friends a try.
Hobbies Direct stocks 100% of the spare parts for the Traxxas 1/16 Summit VXL meaning more fun-time and less downtime.
Traxxas Stability Management
TSM - Traxxas Stability Management is built-in to the Traxxas' latest receivers. It has a gyro that detects when the car is sliding out off course and instantly corrects it to keep it where you want it to go.
Traxxas' patented Training Mode is a fantastic way to learn how to drive an RC car, once set to Training Mode the power output of the car gets reduced to 50%.
The Velineon VXL-3m speed control is loaded with high-grade technology to deliver maximum power to the motor. When running a LiPo battery the two-stage low voltage detection prevents the battery from being over-discharged, and advanced circuit design gives smooth power delivery at any speed.
