Summit Style, Brushless Performance, now in 1/16 scale!
Believe In The Impossible: Big Summit Fun in 1/16 Scale!
Barely as tall as a single tire on the 1/10 scale Summit, the new 1/16 Summit VXL will make you forget all about its super convenient and fun size while its massive suspension travel, screaming brushless horsepower, and 4-wheel drive traction tackle impossible terrain and turn no way into no problem. Traxxas engineers have managed to pack all the big Summit`s go-anywhere versatility into a smaller machine that knows no boundaries. Waterproof? Check. Velineon Brushless power system? Of course! Traxxas tough durability? You bet. Traxxas engineers built this one to run hard and fast with its all-new extreme duty driveshafts, rugged ExoCage body, beefed up suspension damping, and scale Canyon AT tyres. Add an extra battery and a Traxxas speed connector (sold separately) and top speed climbs to 40+mph. The 1/16 Summit’s just-right size lets you enjoy hours of off-road fun anywhere, anytime!
Proven Traxxas Innovation
No detail was overlooked in our mission to bring all the capability, durability, and excitement of Traxxas' award-winning models to 1/16 scale for fast, affordable R/C fun. The Summit is built on the race-winning, track-proven innovation of the Revo and E-Revo models. The standard-bearer of design excellence, the Revo's F1-inspired, rocker-actuated suspension has been expertly adapted to 1/16 scale with all its functionality and performance intact, right down to the oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks. This superior technology provides capability, performance, and tuning functions at the absolute pinnacle of truck design. The suspension and electronics are fully integrated into the semi-monocoque chassis design that stunned the world when it debuted with the E-Revo. Intricately molded as a single piece, the chassis balances strength and weight, function and aesthetics, convenience and performance to far surpass the standards of the "mini" category. In 1/16 scale, it is an even more impressive achievement of packaging and performance optimization that could only come from Traxxas, The Fastest Name In Radio Control®.
Unbeatable Speed and Performance
No "mini" model can match 1/16 Summit's class-leading speed and tire-spinning torque. Right out of the box, the potent Velineon Brushless Power System and included Power Cell NiMH battery push Summit past 25mph to outrun any "mini" (and many 1/10 scale RTR trucks). Install a second Power Cell battery to unleash the Velineon Brushless Power System's full fury, and Summit VXL jumps to over 40mph—all with proven-safe NiMH packs. Only Traxxas makes it so easy and affordable to experience this level of high speed, trail-taming torque, and wheelie-popping power.
Velineon Brushless Power
Built specifically for Traxxas 1/16 scale models, the VXL-3m speed control and Velineon® 380 motor represent the latest in brushless technology. Fully LiPo compatible with low-voltage detection for 2S and 3S packs and rated for 6-12 NiMH cells, this potent, powerful combo gives Summit VXL precise throttle control and blistering top speed. Patented Training Mode™ lets new drivers hone their skills at 50% throttle. When they're ready, full power and 40+mph is unleashed with a touch of the EZ-Set® button. Big speed requires big horsepower, so Summit VXL is equipped with the largest motor in the "mini" category. The Velineon 380 is built to the same no-compromise specs as the Velineon 3500 found in Traxxas' 70+mph 1/10 scale VXL models. High-speed ball bearings. Sintered rotor. Neodymium magnets. Gold plated 3.5mm connectors. It all adds up to 50,000 rpm of pure power for unbeatable torque, power, and speed!
Dual Battery Compartments
1/16 Summit VXL tops 25mph with its included 6-cell Power Cell NiMH battery pack—but that's just the beginning of Summit VXL's speed story. The chassis' dual battery compartments let you add a second NiMH battery pack and Traxxas series connector (both sold separately) for 14.4 volts of power. Install the included "speed pinion," and top speed jumps to 40+mph. All of this incredible performance comes with safe, inexpensive NiMH power!
The World's Most Advanced Ready-To-Race® Radio System
The 1/16 Summit is equipped with the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race® radio system. The Traxxas TQi arrives with a full complement of tuning features and offers the unbeatable convenience of "no channels, no crystals" 2.4GHz technology—but that's just the beginning. Automatic model recognition instantly recalls your settings for up to 30 Traxxas Link-enabled models. Just switch on and drive, no naming or "model memory" settings required. Power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! The TQi 2.4GHz transmitter is fully adjustable: steering and throttle end points can be set precisely, and the Multi-Function knob can be programmed to control Traxxas Stability Management (TSM), Steering Sensitivity (Expo), Throttle Sensitivity (Expo), Steering Percentage (Dual Rate), Braking Percentage (Dual Rate), or Throttle Trim. TQi's ergonomic case design provides all-day driving comfort, and the unique internal antenna contributes to its sleek, modern look.
Traxxas Link Wireless Module Compatible
The TQi's most important new feature may already be in your pocket. The TQi can be equipped with an Traxxas Link Wireless Module (#6511, sold separately) that turns your Android, iPad® iPhone® or iPod touch® (sold separately) into a powerful tuning tool for your Traxxas model. The full-color display combines with the free Traxxas Link™ App to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that unlocks the mysteries of optimizing your radio system for ultimate vehicle control. Traxxas Link also opens the door to telemetry capability when you add optional sensors to your model.
Traxxas Stability Management
Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) allows you to experience all the extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered into your 1/16 Summit making it much easier to control on common slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow. Punch it off the line and TSM goes to work sensing the vehicle’s direction and making steering corrections to provide straight-ahead full-throttle acceleration without fishtailing, spinouts, and loss of control. TSM also works during cornering, first making intuitive corrections to maintain your line, and then allowing you to hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. Braking is dramatically improved as TSM works to keep you arrow straight until you come to a complete stop.
The 1/16 Summit VXL is fully assembled with TQi 2.4GHz radio system, Velineon brushless power system, painted and decaled body, pre-glued tires, and detailed instructions. A Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery and 2-amp peak detecting charger are also included, making the Summit VXL truly Ready-To-Race. Designed specifically for the high-power needs of the Velineon brushless system, the potent Power Cell pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas' exclusive patented High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run. Traxxas backs the Summit VXL and all of our products with top-notch support that is second to none. A staff of skilled representatives is on-hand to answer your questions via phone, website, or e-mail. Unmatched parts support allows the Summit to be serviced with parts and support from thousands of hobby dealers worldwide. Your investment is also protected by the Traxxas Lifetime Electronics Warranty. Traxxas goes the extra mile to ensure that your R/C experience is easy and fun (and fast!).
