Traxxas Rustler
Modified Motor–Featuring a Titan 12T 550 modified motor, the Traxxas Rustler XL-5 reaches speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. This specific design comes with a cooling fan, which produces faster speeds, longer running times and extends the engine’s life.
Enhanced ESC–This model’s high-end ESC is waterproof, has three driving profiles and contains thermal shutdown protection. Its best feature, however, is the Traxxas Training Mode. This setting limits engine power to 50 percent as you, or the kids, get used to the car’s controls.
All-terrain performance–Because of the watertight electronics onboard this car, users can expand from dry, rugged terrain into mud, puddles, snow and other wet conditions. This model’s patented slipper clutch ensures consistent traction control across multiple surfaces.
Fast-Charging Battery–Batteries for the remote and car are included with the Rustler XL-5, but perhaps its best addition is the four-amp charger. This device supplements the car’s 10 to 15 minute battery life by providing a fast, full charge with LED feedback on the battery’s status.
Overall Efficiency–Fiber composite chassis form this car’s solid framework, while the inline battery position and low-resting servo steering system contribute to its low center of gravity. The live axle suspension, variable transmission and sealed ball bearings foster the car’s high-level stability and control.
