Features Overview

Titan® 12-Turn 550 Modified Motor:
The Bandit features a powerful Titan 12T 550 modified motor with internal cooling fan - an industry first for a high-performance Ready-To-Race® buggy. The Titan's oversized armature (30% larger compared to 540-sized armatures) features 12 turns of pure copper wire for big torque and increased power-handling capabilities. The integrated cooling fan lowers running temperatures for more fun behind the wheel. The Titan 12T requires very little maintenance and provides consistent torque and high speeds run-after-run, without fading. Beyond the specs, the Titan 12T is made for dirt-roosting torque, lightning-quick acceleration, big-air jumps, and just about any other 4-wheel fun that demands real horsepower.

XL-5 Waterproof Electronic Speed Control:
Designed and engineered by Traxxas, the XL-5 Electronic Speed Control handles the elements while smoothly supplying power to the motor. This high-performance ESC packs impressive features that are normally only found on high-end replacement units. The XL-5 features a completely waterproof design, three throttle profiles, low voltage detection, Thermal Shutdown Protection, 4-7 cell NiMH and 2-cell LiPo compatibility, and built-in BEC. High frequency operation combined with ultra-low resistance make the XL-5 an efficient and ultra-smooth fully proportional speed control. The exclusive and patented Training Mode™ profile reduces the overall power output of the XL-5 by 50%, making it easier for young or new drivers to develop their control skills before unleashing full-power.

Traxxas 4-amp DC Peak Detecting Fast Charger:
Bandit includes a 4-amp peak detecting charger for quick, convenient, hassle-free charging. The charger uses a 12-Volt DC power outlet for charging charging in the field. The brilliant LED provides charging status while the battery charges. The peak-detecting charger is optimized for charging Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery packs. Just plug the included Power Cell battery in for a perfect charge, run after run.

3-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security:
The TQ 2.4GHz micro receiver fits easily into almost any vehicle, and features dual channel-1 steering outputs. The integrated LINK button makes it fast and easy to bind the receiver, and the two-color LED indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and convenience. In the event of signal loss due to an accidental transmitter switch-off or depleted batteries, the receiver will automatically return the throttle to neutral and hold the last commanded steering position. The Fail Safe programming is conveniently built-in and does not need to be set or activated.

Torque-Control™ Slipper Clutch:
The Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction pads and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent traction control. The friction material remains stable across a wide temperature range to provide smooth, linear engagement you can count on, run after run. Spur gears remove and replace easily without altering the slipper adjustment.

Included Optional Pinion Gear:
The Bandit reaches its blistering 35+mph top speed on-road using the optional 31-tooth pinion gear (included) and a 7-cell 8.4V battery pack (sold separately). Out of the box, the installed 21-tooth pinion gear is just right for all-around, on or off-road action.

ProGraphix® Body:
The Bandit's fully trimmed and painted ProGraphix bodies turn heads everywhere they go with their stunning looks and bold paint designs. Decals come pre-applied to save you time and get you driving just minutes out of the box. Traxxas' ProGraphix bodies are the hottest looking bodies around and are only available on Traxxas Ready-to-Race® models.

Brushless Ready Magnum 272™ Transmission:
The Bandit's Magnum 272 transmission features metal gears riding on ultra-smooth sealed ball bearings. Combined with the smooth 48-pitch gears, power transfers quietly to the durable telescoping U-joint driveshafts. The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks. Best of all, the Magnum 272 is built Traxxas Tough™ to handle massive brushless power without the need for costly upgrades.
