The Traxxas Stampede XL-5® Rock-Crushing Torque!

Stampede XL-5 Named,
"Best Electric Monster Truck for 2006"
- Xtreme RC Cars (Jan, 2007)
The best-selling Stampede was the first high-performance monster truck and it's legendary ruggedness has made the Stampede name synonymous for monster truck driving fun.
Today, the Stampede has a hot new look, innovative features, and of course, more power to boost the fun quotient even higher. Combine the increased horsepower with the tall, drive-over-anything ground clearance; ultra-tough suspension; and easy operation, Stampede will quickly become your favorite for all kinds of monster truck action. Stampede is still the first name in high-performance monster trucks.
The Stampede is one monster truck that doesn’t know when to quit! Crushing cars, catching big air, and popping wheelies have never been this much fun. There is no other truck available that offers Stampede’s unique style, capability, and reputation for durability. When it comes to speed, the Titan 12-turn 550 modified motor and racing-style Magnum 272™ transmission propel the Stampede to speeds over 30mph*. The integrated cooling fan in the Titan 12T pulls air through the motor keeping it cool. Airflow is routed through cooling channels molded into the motor plate. A cooler running motor delivers faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life.
Stampede benefits from it's family lineage incorporating advanced Revo® technology to bolster performance. The Magnum 272 transmission is fully sealed and comes equipped with efficient and precise ball bearings and an advanced Revo®-Spec Torque-Control™ slipper clutch. Revo-spec Talon™ 2.8" tires provide sure-footed traction no matter how extreme the terrain is. The aggressive Talon tires are pre-glued and mounted on bold 2.8" All-Star™ mirror-chrome wheels. Based on the proven Revo Talon tires, the versatile 2.8" Talons grip the pavement, tear through rocks, and have the ability to kick-up massive roosts. The tires include performance-tuned foam inserts that provide extra stability on any surface.
To harness the power of the 12-turn motor, Traxxas bolted in the high-performance XL-5 electronic speed control. With ultra-smooth, high-frequency operation and high-power handing capability, the XL-5 makes the Stampede as fast as it looks. EZ-Set® one-button setup makes it easy to adjust or change profiles. Traxxas' exclusive Training Mode™ profile cuts total power output in half and leaves the brakes at full strength. It’s the first controller of its kind that has a 50% power profile. Training Mode is designed for young or first time drivers that want to learn the ropes before unleashing the full power of the mighty Titan 12T motor. This makes the Stampede perfect for almost any age driver or skill level.
The quest for ultimate speed began with the battery connector. As today’s batteries store more and more energy inside their cells, traditional battery connectors became a roadblock, unable to deliver all the energy the battery is capable of outputting. The new Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for unrestricted current flow.

The Stampede comes fully loaded with innovative performance options like a fiber-composite chassis designed for exceptional rigidity and enormous ground clearance. Battery removal is made easy by the quick-release battery hold down latch. In addition, the factory-installed planetary differential never needs adjusting! Just take the Stampede out of the box, charge up a battery, and go have fun! If you’re looking for an all-terrain truck that is perfect for monster bashing or wheelie-popping thrills, look no further. Stampede is all you need. Fresh Stampede graphics are available in black, red, gunmetal, or blue. Traxxas ProGraphix® bodies are known for their stunning looks and long-lasting durability, and they are exclusively found on Traxxas Ready-To-Race® vehicles.
