This is the Traxxas Rustler 4x4 VXL Brushless Ready-to-Run Stadium Truck without Battery or Charger. Built from the ground up, incorporating all of the latest Traxxas innovations, the Rustler 4x4 VXL is equipped with a new chassis, clipless body mounting, self-righting, and is capable of 65+ MPH on 3S LiPo power.
The all-new Rustler 4X4 VXL is a hard-charging wheelie machine that captures the speed and classic style of the number-one-selling Rustler and injects it with brutal 4-wheel drive performance, increased durability, and even more fun! Bury the throttle and the Rustler 4X4 VXL launches its front wheels skyward as it shreds the ground underneath. Beneath the sleek clipless body, the heavy-duty driveline delivers extreme Velineon brushless horsepower. The larger Talon EXT wheels and tires provide versatility and grip for any terrain, from backyard trails to concrete skate parks. Rustler 4X4 VXL destroys convention to become the new performance and fun standard for 4X4 stadium trucks!
The all-new low-CG chassis positions the weight low for aggressive handling. The wheelbase has been lengthened 20mm for the perfect balance of stability and quick response. Brushless Velineon power flows through a larger Revo-Spec slipper clutch and new extreme heavy-duty driveshafts to ensure performance and strength.
The Rustler 4X4 VXL uses Traxxas patented Self-Righting feature to keep the fun going, even when you get carried away with the wheelies or land that big trick upside down. Simply press a button on the TQi transmitter and, in most circumstances, the Rustler 4X4 VXL will be back on its wheels in just seconds and ready for more action!
Clipless Body Mounting
Similar to the flagship E-Revo, the Rustler 4X4 VXL uses a clipless body latching system for secure mounting and fast, one-handed removal and installation. The sleek, aerodynamic body features a rugged internal structure and external rollover protection for long life and Traxxas-Tough durability.
Revo-Spec Oil-Filled Differentials
The Rustler 4x4 VXL's heavy-duty front and rear oil-filled differentials utilize steel-gear internals for maximum durability. The sealed design allows for tuning of the locking action by varying the viscosity of the diff fluid used.
New, Heavy-Duty Suspension Arms
All-new heavy-duty suspension arms are beefed up to take the abuse of today's bashing. Made from a tough new composite material, these arms are made to keep the Rustler 4x4 going strong.
Extreme Heavy-Duty Driveshafts
The new Rustler 4x4 driveshafts are also strengthened in critical areas to handle the torque of this machine. The larger diameter half shafts offer the same articulation and suspension travel, but are rated for more power than ever before.
Optimum-Geometry Steering with Integrated Servo Saver
A dual-bellcrank design pivots on rubber-sealed ball bearings for smooth action in the harshest conditions. The integrated cam-type servo saver protects the servo gears from crash impacts without sacrificing steering precision.
A wheelie bar is an absolute necessity on a vehicle with the power and speed potential of the Rustler 4x4 VXL. The reinforced wheelie bar provides additional impact resistance for the bumper and also protects the wing during 100-foot wheelies!
