At the end of the day, size always wins.
At Traxxas, too much power is never enough! The durability of the new VXL-8s is matched only by the sheer ferocity of its 8s 30+ volt dual LiPo muscle. The speed-tuned 1200XL Big Block™ motor propels
The interlocking modular chassis design keeps the motor and the gear drive together as a unit to virtually eliminate gear-crunching chassis flex. Plus, the design provides easy access to critical components, making any needed maintenance or repairs a snap to perform.
The wheels and tires are massive and so is the grip from the hyper-aggressive all-terrain tread. Traxxas specially-engineered a new tire compound and mounting system to cope with
The all-new motor mount design cradles the motor so it can’t flex on the mount. Gear mesh is held firmly in place by keyed pins so there’s no need for tricky adjustments. Eliminating flex means longer gear life, even in the most punishing conditions. The new dual-fan assembly helps cool the motor for extended run times and maximum fun.
Waterproofing our models has never been an afterthought at Traxxas. Patented Traxxas innovation seals out the water so that your playground doesn’t end when the fun involves water, snow, and mud. Dirty truck? Just hose it off. The new style box allows fast radio access without removal.
A new servo was created to deliver the strength and the torque necessary to give
Traxxas armed the
Conventional slipper clutches could not withstand the monster torque loads of the 8s
The tough aluminum center driveshaft carries the power to the front and rear differentials. Splined drives are used throughout for precise engagement, incredible strength, and smooth running.
The all new Torque-Biasing Center Drive absorbs shocks to improve driveline durability. The Center Drive also distributes power to all four wheels for mind-bending four-wheel drive acceleration without the side effects of a typical center differential. Center differentials allow tires in the air to balloon uncontrollably, while the Torque-Biasing Center Drive allows wheelies off the line with seamless power distributed to all four wheels.
