Traxxas Stability Management
Traxxas Stability Management TSM makes it easier to control your vehicle on slippery surfaces such as 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 loss of control. When cornering, TSM makes intuitive corrections to maintain the vehicle’s line, then hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. TSM also improves braking performance by keeping the front wheels arrow straight until they come to a complete stop.
The World's Most Advanced Ready-To-Race Radio System
The radio system is the sole connection between the driver and machine. It has to be precise, comfortable, powerful, and reliable. The Traxxas TQi radio system arrives with a full complement of tuning features; long-range, high-output, 2.4GHz signal, and proven Traxxas reliability for rock-solid performance.
Traxxas Link Wireless Module Compatible
The TQi's most important feature may already be in your pocket. Equip the TQi with a Traxxas Link Wireless Module (#6511, sold separately) and turn mobile device into a powerful tuning tool. The full-color display combines with the free Traxxas Link App to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that optimizes your radio system for ultimate vehicle control. Traxxas Link also opens the door to telemetry capability when you add optional sensors to your model. The Traxxas Link Application is available on Google Play and the App Store.
5-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security
The TSM TQi 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. Traxxas Link Model Memory allows the receiver to recognize up to thirty TQi 2.4Ghz Traxxas Link enabled transmitters. 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. The 5-channel receiver features three telemetry ports to allow real-time data to be transmitted from your vehicle to the TQi transmitter.
Patented Sealed Watertight Receiver Box
Stampede VXL's receiver is fully enclosed to protect it from the elements. The antenna and servo wires route neatly through a special watertight seal and a custom blue O-ring seals the receiver box to protect the receiver from water. The receiver can be removed for service and aftermarket receivers can be installed without losing the sealing properties of the box.

Heavy-Duty Hub Carriers & Steering Blocks
Stampede VXL features all ball bearing front steering blocks and rear hub carriers. They utilize large 5x11 mm ball bearings for long-term precision performance, smooth operation, and increased durability.
Adjustable Steel Turnbuckles
Factory fitted, heavy-duty steel turnbuckles allow camber and toe tuning. Stampede VXL is completely adjustable right out of the box to fine tune handling agility and high-speed performance. Captured rod ends provide unmatched durability and they simply won't pop off.
Talon 2.8" Pre-Glued Tires with Foam Inserts
The advanced Talon tread pattern provides excellent traction and proven durability! The soft compound rubber hooks up for maximum acceleration and great grip on a wide variety of surfaces: dirt, grass, pavement, and rocks.
The black-chrome All-Star wheels feature a lightweight horizontal bead that holds the tire to the rim even under extreme rpm. Performance-designed foam inserts are standard and all tires come pre-glued from the factory to get you rolling right out of the box.
Adjustable Wheelie Bar
Stampede VXL uses a patented wheelie bar when four position adjustments for wheelie control or for wheelies on command. The durable nylon composite mount offers an extra level of protection for the motor and transmission case.
Torque-Control Slipper Clutch
The Torque-Control slipper clutch utilizes special semi-metallic friction material and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent yet adjustable traction control. The semi-metallic friction material remains stable across a wide temperature range to provide smooth, linear engagement you can count on. Spur gears can be removed and replaced without altering the slipper adjustment.
Included Optional Pinion Gear
Stampede reaches a scorching 65+mph top speed using an optional 30-tooth pinion gear, 83-tooth spur gear, and a 3-cell 11.1V Lithium-polymer battery pack (sold separately). Out of the box, the installed 19-tooth pinion gear is just right for all-around, wheelie popping, on or off-road action.
Precision Transmission Case
Stampede's Pro Series Magnum 272R transmission is engineered for extreme strength with its rugged, reinforced case. The case halves engage precisely to seal out dirt and debris, and create a rigid structure to support the motor, suspension arms, and optional wheelie bar. The thick 3.2 mm T-6 aluminum motor plate resists flex and acts as a heatsink.
All-Metal Internal Gears
Stampede VXL's race-ready Magnum 272R transmission is built for massive torque with high-strength steel input, idler, and differential gears and large-diameter bearings. The input gear is keyed and press fit onto the top shaft for greater precision and strength than a pin-mounted gear.
Sealed Beveled-Gear Differential
Stampede VXL's heavy-duty steel-gear differential is X-ring and gasket-sealed and filled with grease for all-around performance. It's easy to tune the differential's locking action by adding different viscosity silicone oil to suit surface traction.
The Magnum 272R's easily removable differential makes maintenance and tuning easier than ever. Disconnect the driveshafts and open the hatch to release the differential in just minutes.
Yokes with Telescopic Driveshafts
Stampede VXL’s drive yokes provide maximum durability to withstand the extreme power of the Velineon Brushless Power System. The slider driveshafts are extremely durable and allow greater articulation for increased suspension travel.
Powder Coated White Springs
White springs feature a race-tuned spring rate for more responsive handling and the long-lasting, white powder coated finish sets Stampede VXL apart from the pack.
Stampede VXL's fully trimmed and painted ProGraphix body comes with pre-applied decals to save you time and get you driving just minutes out of the box. Traxxas' ProGraphix bodies are the toughest, hottest looking bodies around.
Digital High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
A monster truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance. A Traxxas #2075 digital high-torque, ball bearing steering servo comes standard for precise control, quick response, and unmatched torque—all in a waterproof case.
Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks
Stampede's oil-filled Ultra Shocks utilize X-ring technology for a perfect seal and super-smooth performance. They are fully tunable with a wide range of oils, springs, and pistons. Features include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and spring clips to precisely change the ride height and spring pre-load. They can be renewed in minutes with our inexpensive rebuild kits.
Suspension Tie Bar
The composite tie bar strengthens the front bulkhead and suspension arms for increased durability.
Stampede VXL uses pro-quality, high-grade, metric hex-drive hardware for extra strength and easy maintenance and repair. The black-oxide rust-resistant finish provides a high tech look and feel.
Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Precision 5x11 mm rubber-sealed bearings offer super low-friction performance and maximum protection in dirty environments. They are used in all exposed locations on the truck and provide virtually maintenance free reliability.
