VXL-3M ESC and Velineon 380 Motor
$100.00

Boost your 1/16 model to 50+mph! Traxxas makes it easy with the Velineon® VXL-3m brushless power system. It sets up, operates, and programs just like the Traxxas XL-5™ family of speed controls so there's no tricky new procedures to learn. Experience top speeds of 30+mph with a single battery—add a second pack and series connector to unleash 50+mph! Traxxas' exclusive patent-pending Training Mode™ is also included to limit full throttle to 50% for young or inexperienced drivers. For the most advanced users, the VXL-3m is equipped with two-stage low voltage detection to allow LiPo battery use, including powerful 11.1-volt 3S packs!

VXL-3M

  • Traxxas High-Current Connector maintains pure, unrestricted power flow from the battery to the brushless power system.
  • Built-in two-stage low voltage detection for Lithium Polymer (LiPo) battery use provides a clear signal to the driver that the battery pack is nearing its minimum voltage threshold.
  • Wide range of battery options, including 6-12 cell NiMH or NiCad packs
  • The patent-pending Training Mode™ is an exclusive Traxxas feature that reduces the overall power output of the VXL-3m by 50%, making it easier for new or younger drivers to control their model. When they're ready, simply change profiles to unleash full-throttle action.
  • Advanced circuit design allows sensorless brushless motors to operate with the smoothness and precision of the best brushed systems. There's no need for additional sensor wiring and hardware complexity.
  • The EZ-Set® push-button setup operates and programs just like other Traxxas speed controls such as the XL-5. This eliminates the need to learn a new set of procedures.
  • The VXL-3m is programmable with three drive profiles:
    • Sport Mode — Fwd / Brake / Rev
    • Race Mode — Fwd / Brake
    • Training Mode™ — 50% Fwd / Brake / 50% Rev
  • Multi-color LED provides clear feedback
    • Two-stage thermal shutdown protection protects the VXL-3m from overheating.
    • Locked Rotor Protection™ prevents system damage by cutting power if the vehicle is stuck or the motor is bound.
    • Battery Over-Voltage Protection™ causes the ESC to go into failsafe mode if the maximum input voltage is exceeded.
  • Water resistent case design uses rubber seals and o-rings to protect against damage caused by water and moisture.
  • Micro-fin aluminum heatsink dissipates heat.
  • MOSFET design provides high-current output (326 amp peak) with incredibly low resistance (.0005 Ω).
  • Gold plated 3.5mm bullet connectors on 16-gauge Maxx® Cable flow full power to the motor without performance-strangling resistance.
