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. The XL-5 comes standard with three drive profiles, low voltage detection, thermal shutdown protection, and gold-plated connectors.
Battery and Charger Included!
Bandit includes a powerful 8.4-volt Power Cell rechargeable NiMH battery pack to reach its blazing 35+mph top speed. This high-capacity 3000mAh pack provides extended run times and powerful acceleration with premium NiMH cells. A fast and powerful 4-amp 12V DC charger (up to 10x faster than conventional trickle chargers) comes in the box for quick charging in the field. An optional #2976 40-watt AC adapter (sold separately) transforms a common wall outlet into a robust power source for the included 4-amp NiMH fast charger.
