There is some saying about necessity being the mother of invention. You’ve probably heard it. Anyway, there’s a reason why these sayings come to be. RPM became aware via customer named Ryan K. that Traxxas’ VXL-3S speed control was prone to breaking where it mounts to the chassis. The fix is their new two-piece cage that surrounds the speed control. It’s a simple, but clearly effective design. It also costs less than $10 and is available in blue and black.
Because it’s a specific fit, the cage only works with the Traxxas VXL-3S speed control. It is a direct fit for the Traxxas Stampede 4X4, Slash 4X4, Slash 2WD and Rally. It will also fit the Traxxas Rustler, 2WD Stampede and Bandit as long as Traxxas #3725 Mounting plate (stock item on VXL models) is used.
