Modified Muscle
The Titan 12T 550 modified motor pumps out incredible power with virtually maintenance-free operation, and long-lasting performance. The Titan's integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through vent tunnels molded into the motor plate to keep temperatures down. A cooler running motor equates to faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life. The XL-5 Electronic Speed Control offers high current handling, EZ-Set® one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control. Once reserved for high-end replacement ESCs, the XL-5 comes standard with three drive profiles, low voltage detection, thermal shutdown protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance. The patented Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for unrestricted current flow with today's high-power batteries.

MODEL 24054-4: Fully assembled, waterproof, Ready-To-Race®, with TQ™ 2.4GHz radio system, 
XL-5 Electronic Speed Control, and ProGraphix® painted body

 

 

tq 2.4ghz 2-channel transmitterPrecision 2.4GHz Control 
Switch on the power and drive! That's all there is to it with the TQ™ 2.4GHz radio system. There are no frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. Race multiple vehicles side by side without interference. The TQ's advanced programming provides long-range control with smooth, glitch-free performance. The TQ's ergonomic design is comfortable for all day driving with an internal antenna that is impervious to damage.


 

Waterproof Receiver Box
Bandit's innovative waterproof receiver box allows easy access to the receiver for maintenance. The unique patented design holds a 3-channel micro receiver that saves weight and provides reliable, long-range RC performance.


 

3-channel micro receiver
3-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security

The TQ 2.4GHz micro receiver fits easily into almost any vehicle, and features dual channel-1 steering outputs. The integrated LINK button makes it fast and easy to bind the receiver, and the two-color LED indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and convenience. In the event of signal loss due to an accidental transmitter switch-off or depleted batteries, the receiver will automatically return the throttle to neutral and hold the last commanded steering position. The Fail Safe programming is conveniently built-in and does not need to be set or activated.

 

High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
high torque 2056 steering servo A high speed race buggy needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance, and Traxxas delivers with the #2056 high-torque servo. This waterproof steering servo uses O-ring seals to keep the fun going when things get wet. Waterproof for all-weather action, the #2056 provides 80 oz-in of steering muscle. That's twice the power of typical "standard" servos.

 

securely mounted electronics
Securely Mounted Electronics

The ESC and watertight receiver box are screwed to the chassis for ultimate mounting security. There's no servo tape to loosen over time with dirt, heat, and collisions.

 

torque control slipper clutchTorque-Control™ Slipper Clutch
The Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction pads and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent traction control. The friction material remains stable across a wide temperature range to provide smooth, linear engagement you can count on, run after run. Spur gears remove and replace easily without altering the slipper adjustment.

 

alias tires on tracer wheelsAlias™ Tires and Tracer™ Wheels
The Bandit rides on stylish 2.2" Tracer™ mirror-chrome five-spoke wheels with pre-glued tires and foam inserts. Alias™ step-pin rear tires and ribbed front tires keep the Bandit firmly planted on extreme off-road terrain.

The industry standard 2.2" Tracer wheels accept a wide array of accessory tires including the Traxxas Anaconda 2.2" street tires for Bandit and other buggies.

 

anaconda tiresAnaconda 2.2" Tires (sold separately) 
Transform your Bandit into a menacing street machine with available Anaconda 2.2" street treads. These sticky, high-traction tires offer aggressive handling on paved surfaces. This proven design features large tread blocks to provide incredible grip and long-wearing performance. Buy them pre-glued and ready to install for instant on-road action.

 

optional pinion gear

Included Optional Pinion Gear

The Bandit reaches its blistering 35+mph top speed on-road using the optional 31-tooth pinion gear (included) and a 7-cell 8.4V battery pack (sold separately). Out of the box, the installed 21-tooth pinion gear is just right for all-around, on or off-road action.

ProGraphix® Body 
The Bandit's fully trimmed and painted ProGraphix body turns heads everywhere it goes with its bold new paint design. Decals come pre-applied to save you time and get you driving just minutes out of the box. Traxxas' ProGraphix bodies are the hottest looking bodies around and are only available on Traxxas Ready-to-Race® models.

 

Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks™
oilBandit's oil-filled Ultra Shocks utilize X-ring technology for a perfect seal and silky-smooth performance. They are easy to customize with a wide range of high-performance oils, springs, and pistons available. Features include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and spring clips to change precisely the ride height and spring pre-load tension. If their performance ever fades, refresh them in minutes with our inexpensive rebuild kits.

 

Powder Coated White Springs
White springs are race-tuned for more responsive handling and the long-lasting, white powder coated finish sets Bandit apart from the pack.

 

bandit motor mount

Motor Mount with Cooling Channels
The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks. The molded motor plate includes finned cooling channels where the motor mounts to the motor plate. The cooling channels work in conjunction with the internal Titan 12T motor fan to pull air through the motor for superior cooling.

 

magnum transmission cut-awayBrushless Ready Magnum 272™ Transmission
The Bandit's Magnum 272 transmission features metal gears riding on ultra-smooth sealed ball bearings. Combined with the smooth 48-pitch gears, power transfers quietly to the durable telescoping U-joint driveshafts. The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks. Best of all, the Magnum 272 is built Traxxas Tough™ to handle massive brushless power without the need for costly upgrades.

 

planetary gear differential

Brushless Ready Planetary Gear Differential
The Traxxas planetary gear differential uses hardened steel internal gears for maximum strength during rigorous off-road bashing. This type of differential requires virtually no maintenance and its efficient design puts maximum tire-shredding power to the wheels.

 

steering bellcranksBellcrank Steering
A 35+mph buggy needs a sophisticated steering design to provide razor-sharp handling and accurate steering response. The Bandit’s high-performance bellcrank steering system minimizes bump steer to increase cornering stability.

 

telescoping driveshaftsTelescoping Driveshafts
Slider driveshafts are extremely durable and allow greater articulation for increased suspension travel.
