The World's Most Advanced Ready-To-Race Radio System
1/16 E-Revo VXL is equipped with the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race radio system. The Traxxas TQi arrives with a full complement of tuning features and offers the unbeatable convenience of "no channels, no crystals" 2.4Ghz technology—but that's just the beginning. Automatic model recognition instantly recalls your settings for up to 30 Traxxas Link-enabled models. Just switch on and drive, no naming or "model memory" settings required. Power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! The TQi 2.4GHz transmitter is fully adjustable: steering and throttle end points can be set precisely, and the Multi-Function knob can be programmed to control Steering Sensitivity (Expo), Throttle Sensitivity (Expo), Steering Percentage (Dual Rate), Braking Percentage (Dual Rate), or Throttle Trim. TQi's ergonomic case design provides all-day driving comfort, and the unique internal antenna contributes to its sleek, modern look.
TQi Docking Base Compatible
The TQi's most important feature may already be in your pocket. The TQi can be equipped with an optional Docking Base (TRA6510) that turns your iPhone or iPod touch (sold separately) into a powerful tuning tool for your Traxxas model. The full-color display combines with the free Traxxas Link App (on the App Store) to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that unlocks the mysteries of optimizing your radio system for ultimate vehicle control. Traxxas Link also opens the door to telemetry capability and allows you to add optional sensors to your model.

I like it so much, I got a second one. I have not broken a part yet, and have had it almost 3 months now.
I think this is going to be a new standard in quality. Way to go Traxxas! And Amain had a great price with questions answered easily and quick delivery.
I strongly recommend it.)
truck is fast, flat screams i always manage to lose some body pins when i flip over, ive worn out the front body mount posts twice, need to get aluminum ones if they are available. ive switched the shock oil to 35 wt , handles better now. it takes some abuse! great product. new sheriff in town for minis.)
Late last year I sold them all, and kept but one thing... my MERV. It is without a doubt, pound for pound the most amazing little car I have ever owned and just keeps on bringing me RC joy, even though I am out of the hobby now really. Brilliant. Jumped and backflipped her over 12 feet, smashed her around and put her through hell. Amazing build and strength. Brilliant.
If you are thinking of a 1/16 don't hesitate, this is the best you can get.
The upgrades that take it from good to great are front hubs, MUST get Lipo's, and center diff to make it able to be driven. Without center diff on Lipo's the car is not drivable, too much power and always on it's head :/
I also have a mini Hitec servo on mine as after about 1,000 crashes I trased the stock one.
Anyhow, brilliant car.)
