This is the Traxxas Velineon VXL-3S Velineon Waterproof ESC. This is the replacement for the ESC found in many of the 1/10 brushless trucks, designed for use with the Velineon 3500 motor. See full list of compatible trucks below.

The Velineon VXL-3s forward/reverse electronic speed control simplifies brushless technology with easy, built-in profiles. It sets up, operates, and programs just like the Traxxas XL-5 family of ESCs so there's no tricky new procedures to learn. Traxxas' exclusive patented Training Mode is also included to limit full throttle to 50% for young or inexperienced drivers. For the most advanced users, the VXL-3s is equipped with two-stage low voltage detection to allow LiPo battery use, including powerful 11.1-volt 3S packs!


  • Patented Traxxas High-Current Connector eliminates a common bottleneck and maintains pure, unrestricted power flow from the battery to the brushless power system.
  • Built-in two-stage low voltage detection for Lithium Polymer (LiPo) battery use provides a clear signal to the driver that the battery pack is nearing its minimum voltage threshold.
  • Widest range of battery options ranging from 4-cell NiMH or NiCad packs all the way up to 3S LiPo battery packs (11.1 volt)
  • The patented Training Mode is an exclusive Traxxas feature that reduces the overall power output of the VXL-3s by 50%, making it easier for new or younger drivers to control their model. When they're ready, simply change profiles to unleash full-throttle action.
  • The EZ-Set push-button setup operates and programs just like other Traxxas speed controls such as the XL-5. This eliminates the need to learn a new set of procedures.
  • The VXL-3s is programmable with three drive profiles:
    • Sport Mode - Fwd / Brake / Rev
    • Race Mode - Fwd / Brake
    • Training Mode - 50% Fwd / Brake / 50% Rev
  • Multi-color LED provides clear feedback
  • Two-stage thermal shutdown protection protects the VXL-3s from overheating.
  • Locked Rotor Protection prevents system damage by cutting power if the vehicle is stuck or the motor is bound.
  • Battery Over-Voltage Protection causes the ESC to go into failsafe mode if the maximum input voltage is exceeded.
  • Water resistent case design uses rubber seals and o-rings to protect against damage caused by water and moisture.
  • Micro-fin aluminum heatsink dissipates heat.
  • The built-in auxiliary fan output powers a snap-on accessory fan for increased cooling capacity during extreme use. A handy clasp on the speed control case keeps the wire neatly in place until you are ready to use it.
  • MOSFET design provides high-current output (320 amp peak) with incredibly low resistance (.00075 Ohm).
  • Gold plated 3.5mm bullet connectors on 12-gauge Maxx Cable flow full power to the motor without performance strangling resistance.
