This is the Traxxas Rustler XL-5 Ready-to-Run 1/10 Scale Electric Stadium Truck with the ID Battery and DC 4-Amp Charger and LED Lights. The truck comes with the 3000mAh 7-Cell 8.4V flat battery pack with ID connector, 4-Amp DC charger, and waterproof electronics on the truck. These are great trucks for people new to R/C, and they are a great way for kids to get involved. This is one of the best beginner trucks we have and they are an unbelievable value. These make an excellent gift!
Included 7-Cell iD Battery Pack
Rustler XL-5 includes a genuine Power Cell Battery Pack with iD connector to make sure you experience all the performance that's been engineered into your Traxxas model. Power Cell packs are optimized for free-flowing power and maximum punch with premium quality, low-resistance cells; flexible, silicone-jacketed 12-gauge wire; heavy-duty welded tabs; and Traxxas' high-output, gold plated, high-current connectors. Precision assembly with attractive, individually wrapped cells and clear overwrap complete the Traxxas Power Cell package, and seven cells give Rustler 8.4 volts of motivation for maximum speed.
4-amp DC Peak Detecting Fast Charger!
For quick, convenient, hassle-free charging, a 4-amp DC fast charger is included to maximize runtime and minimize down time. The included NiMH charger uses a standard 12-Volt DC power outlet (a car accessory/cigarette lighter port) for universal high-output charging. The brilliant LED provides charging status as soon as the battery is connected. The charger is optimized for charging your Traxxas iD Power Cell NiMH battery. Peak-detection circuitry makes sure the battery receives a full charge every time. The status LED flashes green to indicate when charging is in progress, then turns solid green when charging is complete for foolproof charging, peak performance, and maximum runtime.
To charge from a wall outlet, check out the Traxxas 2976 AC wall adapter.
Rustler's LED lighting extends your fun long after dark. Four brilliant white lights illuminate the path ahead while dual red LEDs let you track Rustler's progress from behind. The lights are protected behind rugged bumpers and the entire system is waterproof for worry-free performance.
Titan 12-Turn 550 Modified Motor
Rustler's powerful Titan 12T 550 motor is made for rock-crushing torque, lightning-quick acceleration, hardcore wheelies, explosive jumping, and just about any other 4-wheel fun that demands real horsepower. The Titan's oversize armature features 12 turns of pure copper wire for big torque and increased power-handling. The integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through the motor to keep temperatures down for more fun behind the wheel. The Titan 12T requires very little maintenance and provides consistent torque and high speeds run-after-run.
XL-5 Waterproof Electronic Speed Control
The waterproof XL-5 Electronic Speed Control handles the elements while smoothly supplying power to the motor. The XL-5 features three throttle profiles, low voltage detection, Thermal Shutdown Protection, 4-7 cell NiMH and 2-cell LiPo compatibility, and built-in BEC. High frequency operation combined with ultra-low resistance make the XL-5 an efficient and ultra-smooth fully proportional speed control. The exclusive and patented Training Mode reduces the overall power output of the XL-5 by 50%, making it easier for young or new drivers to develop their control skills before unleashing full-power.
Traxxas High-Current Connector
The patented Traxxas High-Current Connectors funnel maximum power to your vehicle’s electronics. Traxxas High-Current Connectors let you get the quickest, safest charge for your battery so you can unleash the maximum power and runtime for your Traxxas vehicle.
Precision 2.4GHz Control
Switch on the power and drive! That's all there is to it with the TQ 2.4GHz radio system. There are no frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. Race multiple vehicles side by side without interference. The TQ's advanced programming provides long-range control with smooth, glitch-free performance. The TQ's ergonomic design is comfortable for all day driving with an internal antenna that is impervious to damage.
Waterproof Receiver Box
Rustler's innovative waterproof receiver box allows easy access to the receiver for maintenance. The unique patented design holds a 3-channel micro receiver that saves weight and provides reliable, long-range R/C performance.
3-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security
The TQ 2.4GHz micro receiver uses an integrated LINK button for fast and easy binding. A two-color LED indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and convenience. In the event of signal loss, the receiver will automatically return the throttle to neutral and hold the last commanded steering position. The Fail Safe programming is conveniently built-in and does not need to be set or activated.
High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
A race truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance, and Traxxas delivers with the 2056 high-torque servo. This waterproof steering servo uses O-ring seals to keep the fun going when things get wet. Waterproof for all-weather action, the 2056 provides 80 oz-in of steering muscle. That's twice the power of typical "standard" servos.
Alias Tires and Wheels
The Rustler rides on aggressive 2.8″ black and chrome 6-spoke wheels. Alias step-pin rear tires and ribbed front tires keep the Rustler firmly planted on extreme off-road terrain.
Included Optional Pinion Gear
The Rustler reaches its blistering 35+ mph top speed on-road using the optional 28-tooth pinion gear (included) and 7-cell 8.4V battery pack. Out of the box, the installed 16-tooth pinion gear is just right for all-around, on or off-road action.
The Rustler's fully trimmed and painted ProGraphix bodies turn heads everywhere they go with an aggressive look and bold paint designs. Decals come pre-applied to save you time and get you driving just minutes out of the box. Traxxas' ProGraphix bodies are the hottest looking bodies around and are only available on Traxxas Ready-to-Race models.
Torque-Control Slipper Clutch
The Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction pads and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent traction control. The friction material remains stable across a wide temperature range to provide smooth, linear engagement you can count on, run after run. Spur gears remove and replace easily without altering the slipper adjustment.
Brushless Ready Magnum 272 Transmission
The Rustler's Magnum 272 transmission features metal gears riding on ultra-smooth sealed ball bearings. Combined with the smooth 48-pitch gears, power transfers quietly to the durable telescoping U-joint driveshafts. The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks. Best of all, the Magnum 272 is built Traxxas Tough to handle massive brushless power without the need for costly upgrades
Slider driveshafts are extremely durable and allow greater articulation for increased suspension travel.
A 35+mph stadium truck needs a sophisticated steering design to provide razor-sharp handling and accurate steering response. The Rustler's high-performance bellcrank steering system minimizes bump steer to increase cornering stability.
Brushless-Ready Planetary Gear Differential
The planetary gear differential uses hardened steel internal gears for maximum strength during rigorous off-road bashing. This type of differential requires virtually no maintenance and its efficient design puts maximum tire-shredding power to the wheels.
