Traxxas Bandit & Stampede VXL TSM RTR kits

Traxxas Bandit & Stampede VXL TSM RTR kits

Traxxas have upgraded VXL Brushless RTR kits available such as the Bandit 1/10th 2WD buggy and the Stampede 2WD truck. Both are proven platforms and around for some time and they feature powerful brushless systems, capable of propelling the cars to speeds of more than 110km/h, they include TQi 2.4GHz radio systems, 7-cell NiMH battery packs and suitable chargers. New to both kits is the Traxxas Stability Management that helps providing straight ahead full-throttle acceleration on slippery surfaces, without fishtailing, spinouts, and loss of control. High speed cornering and control is also made possible as TSM makes corrections in the background, without intruding on fun, or creating unexpected side effects. Both kits will hit the stores very soon.
