The Magnum 272R uses a new low-profile housing with a rock-solid 3.2 mm aluminum motor plate. A hardened steel top shaft and all-metal gears send power to a sealed, silicone-filled 4-gear differential for maximum traction. A removable panel gives you easy access to the differential for tuning with different viscosity fluids. Originally developed for the hard-hitting Drag Slash, the Magnum 272R delivers competition-grade performance for your Bandit VXL. Learn more.
The Velineon brushless motor and electronic speed control (ESC) deliver the ultimate in efficiency, speed, and run time. With the Bandit VXL, your battery selection determines your speed and skill level. Velineon accepts a wide range of batteries, including powerful 3-cell LiPo packs. These packs pump out over 11 volts of power for intense, skill level 5 speeds beyond 70 mph! Built-in low-voltage detection in the VXL-3s™ ESC helps you maintain your LiPo packs in top condition.
Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) works behind the scenes to help prevent spinouts and loss of control on slippery surfaces. TSM senses the vehicle’s direction and makes steering corrections to provide full throttle acceleration without fishtailing or spinouts. When cornering, TSM intuitively corrects the vehicle’s line for faster exit speeds. Learn more
