ESC Cage for the Traxxas VXL-3S ESC – Black
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
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!
