Do you want to increase your Traxxas E-Revo VXL’s performance with lithium polymer (Li-Po) batteries? We’ve road tested a selection of high end Thunder Power RC Li-Pos that will work out of the box with the E-Revo VXL, including a setup that gives it way too much power to reasonably control.
Please note: the Traxxas E-Revo VXL features dual battery bays which gives you the option of running two Li-Po packs in parallel for increased runtime. You must not wire them in series, or you might damage / destroy the batteries and speed controller. You can use this Deans wire harness to safely run Li-Po batteries in parallel.
Economy Setup – 1 or 2 (parallel) x TP-1750-2SP45
At the time of writing, we only have a few of these generation 4 batteries left in stock. If you want to give your E-Revo VXL a boost in performance for a very modest cost, you can pick up one or two of these G4 batteries.
Mid Range Setup – 1 or 2 (parallel) x TP1300-2SPP65
A pair of TP1300-2SPP65 Li-Po batteries will provide an ample boost in power over the stock NiMh batteries. You can use either one pack alone or two packs wired in parallel. Running two packs in parallel will give a more noticeable increase in performance because the voltage drop under load will be less. Using two packs will also double the runtime.
Insane Setup – 1 or 2 (parallel) x TP1300-3SPP45
One or two TP1300-3SPP45 Li-Po batteries will provide more power than most drivers can reasonably control. You will have to be extremely careful with the trigger if you run these packs, as the E-Revo VXL will flip over with all but the slightest touch on the gas. If you’re interested in having more power than you’ll ever need, you can run either one of these packs or two in parallel.
