Among the many attributes of the advanced brushless motor are:
- Higher speed range - No mechanical limitation imposed by brushes
- Less maintenance as there are no brushes
- Higher efficiency, as there is no voltage drop across brushes
- High output-power to size ratio
- Longer operational usage on a full charge
The Traxxas electric vehicles come equipped with Power Cell battery packs. Nitro-powered models have a charger and a battery. The charger comes with the EZ-Start electric starting system.

Using proportional control, operators can regulate the throttle and steering over a long range by way of a 2.4-Ghz radio.What is the Traxxas 8s X-Maxx vehicle?

RTR stands for "Ready To Run" in radio-control-car terminology. As opposed to some units where the operator puts the unit together piece by piece, coming in a kit, RTR cars come fully assembled. All that is required for immediate use is an initial charge of about 30 minutes and batteries for the radio system. If you want to begin operation of the vehicle quickly, or you dont want to build the vehicle yourself, select an RTR vehicle.What are some Traxxas RC car options?Some of the common Traxxas vehicles are the Traxxas TRX-4 Tactical Unit, the Traxxas E-Maxx Brushless: 1/10 Scale Electric Monster Truck, the E-Revo truck such as the Traxxas E‑Revo Brushless, and the Traxxas Slash 4x4.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Traxxas.
