This is the Traxxas 1/16 Rally VXL 4WD Brushless RTR Rally Racer. Get ready for a new kind of R/C excitement! The new Traxxas 1/16 Rally VXL is built for gymkhana style on-road action with a lowered stance, tough wide-body styling, and officially-licensed BFGoodrich rally tires. The Rally VXL is the only R/C vehicle designed to give you the experience of hanging it out in the turns and hustling down the straights with the perfect blend of speed, power, and all-wheel drive traction. The specially tuned suspension and tire compounds let you ride the slip angle with thrilling precision, drifting the car sideways through turns and putting your skills to the test as you master rally-style driving right in your own driveway.

The Velineon® brushless power system combines with 4-wheel drive to give the Traxxas Rally asphalt-shredding muscle to rival full-scale racers and a driving experience that’s like nothing else in R/C. The Rally VXL utilizes Revo’s F-1 inspired, rocker-actuated suspension system which has been expertly engineered for 1/16 Gymkhana racing right down to the oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks and rally-tuned progressive-rate springs. The all-wheel drive system rides on full ball bearings and delivers smooth efficient power through the Torque-Control™ slipper clutch, planetary gear differentials, and Traxxas’ proven telescoping u-joint drive shafts. The suspension and driveline are fully integrated into the compact chassis. Intricately molded as a single piece, the chassis balances strength, weight, function, and style in an impressive achievement of packaging and performance optimization that could only come from Traxxas.

Extreme Velineon Brushless Power & Waterproof Electronics
The Rally VXL’s high-power Velineon® 380 brushless motor is the largest in its class and uses high-strength Neodymium magnets, a sintered rotor, and high-rpm ball bearings for lasting performance. The VXL-3m speed control features the latest low-resistance/high-cur rent FETs and Traxxas’ exclusive High-Current Connector for ultra-efficient power flow. Built-in Low Voltage Detection makes the Velineon V XL-3m ready for 2S and 3S LiPo packs. Add a Traxxas Speed Connector and a second inexpensive Series 1 Power Cell NiMH battery pack for instant access to 50+ mph speeds. Fully waterproof electronics are a Traxxas exclusive that opens the door to new driving and sliding adventures on rain-soaked asphalt.

Traxxas 1/16 Rally VXL 4WD Brushless RTR Rally Racer w/TQ 2.4GHz 2-Channel Radio
Who ever this adam ripply guy is, he is not telling the truth. Traxxas cars are of top quality and no one denies that (exept for this ripply dude). But he probably never owned one. If you read any of his other reviews, they all say the same thing, "10 seconds later the wheel hub blew up". I own three traxxas cars, a traxxas rustler, a very old hawk 2, and a slash 4x4. I have never had a problem with a wheel bearing blowing up. Even with the small steering bearings after they had rusted onto the steering crank assembely (it turns out salt water from the ocean does that), it took a vise clamp with me hanging of the crank to blow a very tiny bearing(5mmx8mmx2.5mm)into little tiny peices. There is no way you will be able to blow a wheel hub bearing(5x8x4mm). Also from the way I've heard, traxxas's customer service is the best in the buisiness(I not sure because as I am still running the original electronics for my hawk which was made in 1987). Normaly companies wont even send you a new part unless it didn't work from the beginning. After all this, I believe that this rally will be a big hit and it may also start a new trend like the slash did(traxxas WAS the first to create a sc truck, everyone else coppied traxxas's design). For that reason and the reasons listed above, I rate the 1/16 rally vxl with a total of ten stars(you wont see the other five but that is why I am telling you). Any body who doesn't rate it with 5 stars and is legit probably had a bad experiance with traxxas and should give them a second chance, we all have our days, mabey that was traxxas's, after all, it is extremely hard to keep millions of people happy, every company has problems with it!)

this car is the most fun per dollar ive ever put into this hobby. we have a racing series here in houston and have abour 25 guys thatll come out and race these. really thick shock oil (like 5k diff oil), heavy springs, and lots of shock limiters to go with some sticky shoes is all this thing needs to be a rally racer! very fun, very quick, cant wait to get another bpack charged and in the car!)

This is a super fun car for any beginner It has a super fast servo and motor. It also comes with everything you need to run it. of course if you are running it on exssesive power and smashing it into the curb and runing it all thru the street and grass the electronics are not gonna hold up but thats with any rc car, the only real downside to this kit is that they give you a wall chargerthat takes like 6 hours to charge. luckily you can get a good charger for like 40.00 to charge nimh)

Played with one of these at the local hobby shop. Very nice car.

Adam Ripley is an idiot, $200 on aluminum hubs? Not likely.

Traxxas is definitely not pro stuff, but it's good quality, and great for people who just want to get into hobby-grade RC.

Lots of fun in this little beast ;))

Traxxas 1/16 Rally VXL 4WD Brushless RTR Rally Racer w/TQ 2.4GHz 2-Channel Radio
i just watched a few reviews on youtube and this seems to be another well-put together product by traxxas. i have never had a problem with traxxas and theyve always been very helpful. i have owned a traxxas tmaxx 2.5, the 1/10 two wheel drive slash and the 1/16 brushed edition slash. the only problems i have had with these vehicles are with the tmaxx i blew the motor and i sent it back with no problem and recieved the 3.3 motor, and then it got run over by a car and estroyed the front end, other than that the truck was great. the two wheel drive slash blew a drive shaft after i had owned it for a year and a couple rusty bearings but thats it. ive had that truck fer almost 2 years now and im still runnin it with no problems. i also cracked the front shock tower and havent replaced it and its still holdin strong. the only problem ive had with the 1/16 slash is the steering servo fried and ive replaced the motor twice but other than that all my traxxas trucks are perfect and ive never run into problems with replacing parts through the company. traxxas is a great brand and for now they are all i will run)
