Blast across the yard or over curbs and roots with the torque and power of the Titan 12-turn 550 motor. To harness the power of the 12-turn motor, Traxxas bolted in the high-performance, waterproof XL-5 electronic speed control.
Traxxas' exclusive patented Training Mode™ let's everyone get in on the racing action. Just press a button to limit full-throttle power to 50%. This allows young or new drivers to safely develop their control skills before unlocking full power of their Traxxas vehicle. Training mode even makes it easy to hand the transmitter over to your friends who have never driven a radio controlled truck before.
The TQ™ radio is designed for comfortable all-day fun. There are no channels or frequencies to manage, just switch it on and drive. Its sleek lines are enhanced by an internal antenna that is impervious to damage.
For quick, convenient, hassle-free charging, a 4-amp DC fast charger is included to maximize run time and minimize down time. The included NiMH charger uses a 12-Volt DC power outlet for high-output charging. An accessory AC to DC converter (#2976) is available separately for universal and convenient charging at home or on the go.
Traxxas Power Cell NiMH Battery with iD
Traxxas iD™ Power Cell™ Battery Packs are optimized for free-flowing power and maximum punch with premium quality, low-resistance cells; flexible, silicone-jacketed 12-gauge wire; heavy-duty welded tabs; and patented Traxxas High-Current Connectors.
Simple. Fast. Just plug in your iD™ battery and press Start. That’s it! Traxxas’ exclusive iD technology eliminates complicated charger programming by automatically configuring and optimizing the charge settings for Traxxas iD batteries. Charging faster means more fun time behind the wheel.
iD technology illustrated with optional Traxxas #2972 iD Charger and batteries, sold separately. Battery size, voltage and configuration may vary depending on vehicle.
Bandit’s chassis and suspension components are formed from an extremely durable and lightweight plastic composite that has been developed to withstand the abuse from the backyard to the track.
Bandit’s Magnum 272™ transmission is assembled with new all metal gear internals riding on ultra-smooth sealed ball bearings. Combined with the smooth 48-pitch gears, power is delivered quietly to the durable telescoping U-joint driveshafts. The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks.
High-speed off-road action requires rugged, responsive shocks that can take abuse. Traxxas Ultra Shocks are proven tough as stock equipment on the Traxxas Bandit. The high-volume body yields large oil capacity, and a silicone bladder separates oil from air within the shock for consistent damping action, even during all-day off-road sessions.
High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
Waterproof for all-weather action, the #2056 servo provides 80 oz-in of steering muscle. That's twice the power of typical "standard" servos.
