RPM ESC Cage For Traxxas VXL-3S Electronic Speed Controllers



Latest from RPM:

An interesting design idea came in from RPM customer Ryan K. for an electronic speed controller (ESC) cage to help protect and retain the Traxxas VXL-3S ESC (Traxxas #3355X). We were shocked to discover that the primary speed controller shipped with most Traxxas VXL brushless systems has two tiny mounting tabs holding it in place. After some quick research, we found these tabs break off quite often, leading to potential damage of a $220 (SRP) speed control.

Our solution is a simple, yet strong and effective one. We eliminated the use of the two undersized mounting tabs on the ESC in favor of a complete cage system that solidly locks it in place. Our ESC Cage is the most effective, durable and best protection for your speed control possible. By completely surrounding and capturing the VXL-3S ESC, damage from broken tabs and ejection from the vehicle has been completely eliminated.

The RPM VXL-3S ESC Cage works perfectly even if one or both mounting tabs have already been broken or cut off! Now there is no reason to rely on unpredictable adhesives or zip ties to protect and retain your speed controller when our ESC Cage will lock it in place with 100% confidence each and every time!

Each RPM ESC Cage is made from our incredibly strong, ultra lightweight blend of engineering grade nylons and factory-backed by our industry-leading limited lifetime warranty. RPM molded products are made with pride in the USA!

#70602 ESC Cage for Traxxas VXL-3S ESCs – Black
#70605 ESC Cage for Traxxas VXL-3S ESCs – Blue

Suggested Retail Price - $9.95 ea.

Tech Notes:

RPM VXL-3S ESC Cages are designed for the Traxxas VXL-3S ESC (Traxxas #3355X) only. While our ESC Cage will fit a variety of applications, they have been tested and only guaranteed to fit the following vehicles in stock form only – Stampede 4x4, Slash 4x4, Slash 2wd & Rally. Also fits the following vehicles as long as Traxxas #3725 Mounting Plate (stock item on VXL models) is used – Rustler, Stampede 2wd & Bandit.
