The next generation of extreme brushless horsepower is here, Ready-To-Race® from Traxxas—and now waterproof! Velineon™ is the ultimate brushless system delivering the tire melting horsepower, supercharged speeds, and ease of use that you expect from Traxxas. Just plug it in and it works.

The key to the Velineon’s extreme power output is total system optimization. Each component, from the Traxxas high-current battery connector, to the powerful Velineon 3500 brushless motor, is carefully engineered to work with other system components to eliminate restriction and allow maximum power flow. High-frequency transistors and advanced circuit design delivers incredibly smooth and refined throttle control. The Velineon system accepts the widest range of battery types, including 3-cell Lithium Polymer packs (3S LiPo packs). Built-in low-voltage detection in the VXL-3s electronic speed control helps keep LiPo battery packs in top condition.

Traxxas’ exclusive waterproof technology allows the Velineon system to operate in wet conditions, including mud and snow, with no special precautions required. You decide where the Velineon powered adventure leads—the only limits are your imagination.

Traxxas VXL-3S Velineon Brushless Power System Combo (Waterproof)
my boss bought this combo, and it is very fast with a 2s lipo, and putting a 3s is like nitrous. And amainhobbies.com has the best price on this combo, and great shipping prices. This combo is so sick I just ordered one , I chose it over the mamba max, for the simple fact it's waterproof and cheaper than the MM.

Traxxas VXL-3S Velineon Brushless Power System Combo (Waterproof)
I purchased this power system combo back in 2010. It has been installed in two 2WD traxxas slash. I have ran too many gear ratios to remember them all. the first truck I owned was for two and a half / three years and it got to the point that the truck was abused beyond rebuilding and cost effect was to spend another $200.00 on a basic slash and install the esc motor in the new truck. only modification made. To date the motor still runs strong as day one no problems with the esc at all. I use 2s and 3s lipo's in all my vehicles traxxas and non traxxas I swap out the connectors to make them compatible. I beat the snot out of all my trucks including my slash. I have replace about every part except the esc and motor. would recommend this to anyone from beginner to expert.

between your gearing and the size wheels you are running, your problem lies there, esc's and motors don't just burn up especially with products from a renouned company.

Traxxas VXL-3S Velineon Brushless Power System Combo (Waterproof)
Sounds like you may have a lemon but also you may have 1) reverse polarity on your battery plugs or 2) same on receiver wire to esc --3) a short in your system somewhere 4) an over-volted battery?--Are you certain you don't?!? That system is made for 7.2 volts--no? One thing about Traxxas is they have had GREAT customer support whenever I called them.

I have this set up on my slash 4x4 such a good combo. I have been running dual 3000 mah batteries and this thing flies down the street its also a really got combo because it something does go wrong you can send it to traxxas and they will send you a new one for free i dont know any other companies that will do that if you are looking to run 3s lipo put a vxl3s fan on it. that will keep temps down by 30 degrees. i have had this combo for over 5 months and never had a problem with it. :)

Got this motor / speed control and placed in my slash 2wd. Almost too fast for the medium sized indoor track I run on for my abilities. When I run at 1/2 to 3/4 thottle I seem to do alright. Full throttle causes chaos! I wish Traxxas would make same motor but in different turns such as 13.5 and a 17.5 turn. Being able to adjust throttle punch and such would also be nice. For the money, very nice system.

Traxxas VXL-3S Velineon Brushless Power System Combo (Waterproof)
This ESC/Motor Combo is crazy powerful!! After I put it in my Slash, I ran with the same Nimh battery I had with the normal XL-5, and I noticed that not only did it run faster but it actually made the battery runtime last longer. Then I just got a 3S Lipo in it & it screams, on top of pulling uncontrollable wheelies! On top of that, it's waterproof like all Traxxas products, unlike the mamba max. I was originally gonna go with the Mamba Max, but after consulting my local hobby shop & hearing about the dozens of problems with the Mamba compared to one remote problem with the Velineon, I gotta say the Velineon was the best choice.

I still have the same old generation velineon from a few years ago. Plenty fast especially on 3s. Still run it in the same old traxxas slash 4x4 with the HCG chassis. I can only imagine they've improved.

Traxxas VXL-3S Velineon Brushless Power System Combo (Waterproof)
I do not personally own this combo, but my friend with whom I often drive, does. His Velineon system has outlasted three of my own: a Castle MMP 3800Kv and two Viper Copperhead 5100Kv combos. He now has it on 3S and it SCREAMS. I'm gonna break down and buy one now because it's just as fast as any of my other systems, less expensive than most, and it is JUST SO RELIABLE!
Don't bother with brand names - put this combo on 3S and NO ONE will be able to tell the difference as long as your body shell is on!

Worst I ever had every Traxxas vxl I have died 7 esc & 4 motors & because I live in Australia Traxxas gives no warranty. I can send back $50 to fix each & $30 post.I changed to mamba max pro on all.Castle gives warranty no questions asked if they die they replace I only pay the post.
Two of the esc were only one month old same with two motors no warranty thanks for nothing Traxxas & there not water proof one died in the lite rain. Buy castle.

Replaced my burnt up Titan motor with this bad boy and wow did it bring life back into my 2wd Rustler. This upgrade is simply amazing and if you are teetering on pulling the trigger. Just hit that add to cart button because this is worth it!

I've owned the original esc and two original motors. The esc and motor is still working and was given to my great nephew 9 years ago which he still bashes around with. That Stampede was rebuilt with all aluminum parts and rollcage. On 3s it needs the wheely bar!!! The other motor I put into my Aquacraft Rio EP with a 120amp turnigy boat esc. With 3s that boat is 70+ mph now. Hit a rock and the boat was full of water and so was the motor. Dried it out and it still runs flawlessly!!!

This came with my Slash 2wd VXL. It's really powerful and easy to use. I've never had a problem with it. I've used 2s Lipo for most of the time that I've had it. Now I'm using it in my TLR 22SCT with a 86T Spur and 17T pinion which I race in an open class. It's got plenty of power for racing and is very reliable. The only downside is that the ESC is larger than most, but it's also water proof and that's a plus.
