Traxxas Motor ESC Velinion Update Dollar Hobbyz

Last year, Traxxas changed the design of the Velineon VXL-3s ESC and 3500 motor. It’s important to choose the right combination because the old versions and new versions are not cross-compatible. Not sure which one you need? Check out the info below!

Old Version:
ESC: Part #3355X
Bottom is completely flat, and the fans run horizontally when looking at it from the front.

Motor: Part #3351
Wires are smooth (no texture) and has white Traxxas lettering

New Version:
ESC: Part #3355R
Bottom has a curved section carved out of the rear and the fans run vertically when looking at it from the front. It will have 3355R written on the front.

Motor: Part #3351R
3351R will be written on the motor cover, and wires will have “braided” texture.

This will affect many Traxxas models: Bandit, Stampede VXL, Rally, Rustler, Slash Platinum, Slash Ultimate and Slash VXL all come with this combo.
