View Full Version : XL-5 slash,,,

I recently ordered an XL-5 for one of my other trucks thnking it came with the Traxxas connector. Well it did come with it but the Traxxas connector was not installed. The XL-5 had the old Tamiya connector installed. Is this going to be the case with the Slash or will the XL-5 have the Traxxas connector installed? The XL-5 is a nice ESC for low cost bashing I don't see why Traxxas doesn't sell it with the Traxxas connector installed. :cool:

Thats not completely true. The replacement ESC that traxxas sent me after my first one was defective did not have the connector installed, it was just in the box. And I got it straight from traxxas.

Yep, that's the way it comes. Not that I mind having to hook it up myself. It just surprised me. The XL-5 is a nice little ESC for the 90% of RC folks who just want to by an RTR and bash the crap out of it. Traxxas should let people know they will need to attach the Traxxas connector if they want to use it.

... Is this going to be the case with the Slash or will the XL-5 have the Traxxas connector installed? ...It should come with a pre-installed Traxxas connector.
The XL-5 electronic speed control comes equipped with the revolutionary Traxxas High-Current Connectors.

I ordered the XL-5 about a month ago from my LHS and it came with the connector but I had to cut the Tamiya one off and install the Traxxas one. No big deal if you have the tools to do the job.
