The amazingly versatile 1/10 Summit all-terrain truck astounded audiences upon its release and now the 1/16 Summit VXL 4WD is set to make just as much of an impact, only in a smaller-scale environment!
The 1/16 Summit VXL harnesses the awesome power of the Velineon brushless motor system to produce jaw-dropping power and speed! 25+ mph out of the box and over 40mph once hopped up with an additional battery pack, 1/16 Summit VXL goes faster than many models twice its size. Don’t confuse this machine with other toy-type 1/16 RC models; with design based on the multi-National Championship winning Revo, its features have been optimised from the original to give unrivalled performance, without sacrificing quality or precision.
Revo-spec suspension geometry gives progressive rate performance that’s light over the smaller bumps and instantly tightens when compressed to prevent bottoming-out when the jumps get more extreme. Coupled to an integrated fibre-composite chassis, 1/16 Summit’s modular design incorporates built-in battery compartments with cooling vents to maximise battery output. Sealed silicone-filled differentials mark an industry first in this scale and can be tuned to differing track conditions. A heavy-duty transmission with Torque-control slipper clutch and extreme-duty drive shafts ensure the 1/16 Summit VXL can forge ahead where others simply cannot follow!
Traxxas electronics are used throughout for that ‘dialled-in’ feel. From the high output, multi-function 2.4GHz TQ radio system, to the high-torque digital steering servo, you’ll feel firmly in control. Already mentioned and at the heart of this system, the Velineon brushless motor and VXL-3m electronic speed controller combination provide ballistic performance. With ‘EZ-Set’ one button set-up and 3 mode settings as standard, and makes tailoring the system to your growing skill level a breeze!
1/16 Summit VXL features the same SUV-style body as its bigger brother and combines the ExoCage wraparound frame for added protection. Canyon AT tyres provide that all-important grip and feature angular lugs designed to conquer dirt, grass, roots and rocks with ease, factory-joined to beadlock-style Geode chromed wheels to beat the toughest terrain into submission!
Like all Traxxas vehicles, the 1/16 Summit VXL 4WD is backed up with spares support that is second to none and this includes many option parts to further race-tune and enhance the performance and looks of your ride!
1/16 Summit VXL 4WD is supplied fully assembled and ready-to-race with included Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz 2-channel multi-function radio system, Traxxas Power Cell 7.2V NiMH battery pack (with high-current connector) and AC charger, plus a stunning *body with factory-applied decals.
