High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo

A race buggy needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance, and Traxxas delivers with the #2056 high-torque servo. This waterproof steering servo uses O-ring seals to keep the fun going when things get wet. Waterproof for all-weather action, the #2056 provides 80 oz-in of steering muscle. That's twice the power of typical "standard" servos.

 



Waterproof Receiver Box


Bandit's innovative receiver box is fully waterproof, yet it's easy to access the receiver maintenance. The exclusive patent-pending design holds a 3-channel micro receiver that saves weight and provides reliable, long-range R/C performance.

Precision 2.4GHz Control

With the TQ 2.4GHz radio system, you just switch on and drive. There are no channels or frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. The TQ's ergonomic design is comfortable for all-day driving, and its sleek lines are enhanced by an internal antenna that is impervious to damage. To customize the controls, the transmitter's factory servo directions can be easily reversed using the TQ's simple programming system.



Securely Mounted Electronics


The ESC and watertight receiver box are screwed to the chassis for ultimate mounting security. There's no servo tape to loosen over time with dirt, heat, and collisions.
