Rustler VXL combines Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) and Velineon extreme horsepower with the proven fun and durability that made Rustler the number-1 selling electric stadium racer. The Velineon Brushless Power System launches Rustler VXL to new heights with speeds of 70mph and beyond! Hardcore, wheel-standing acceleration completely blows everything else away. Rustler’s low, wide stance provides razor-sharp handling and phenomenal grip with TSM keeping you in firm control. Go ahead, rip full throttle! Rustler kicks up towering roosts of mud and its waterproof electronics ensure that no adventure is out of reach, no matter how extreme!
Traxxas Stability Management
Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) lets you experience the Rustler's extreme power, speed, and acceleration by making it much easier to control on slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow. Go ahead, punch it off the line! TSM senses the vehicle’s direction and makes steering corrections to provide full throttle acceleration without fishtailing or spinouts. When cornering, TSM intuitively corrects the vehicle’s line for faster exit speeds. TSM even improves braking by keeping the truck arrow straight until you reach a complete stop. TSM does all this without intruding on driving fun or introducing unexpected side effects. TSM can be fine-tuned (or turned off) for different surfaces by simply adjusting the multi-function knob on the TQi transmitter, or by adjusting the slider in the Traxxas Link app. Drive faster and have more fun with TSM. You may not even realize how much it is helping until you try to drive without it.
