ESC Cage for the Traxxas VXL-3S ESC
Black ESC Cage for the VXL-3S ESCAn 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 Blue ESC Cage for the VXL-3S ESCoff 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 Black ESC Cage for the VXL-3S ESCfrom 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!


Black ESC Cage for the VXL-3S ESCEach 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!


Tech Notes: RPM VXL-3S ESC Cages are designed for the original Traxxas VXL-3S ESC (Traxxas #3355X) only. It is not compatible with newer versions of the VXL-3S ESC (Traxxas #3355R).

RPM Gearbox Housing and Rear Mounts
(Fits Traxxas 2wd Slash, 2wd Stampede, e-Rustler & Bandit)
Blue Gearbox Housing and MountsThe RPM Hybrid Gearbox Housing and Rear Mounts for Traxxas 2wd vehicles is designed to solve a multitude of issues with stock and other aftermarket transmission housings. Our gearbox housing and mounts are a blend of aluminum and molded nylon parts for the perfect combination of strength, durability and heat dissipation. Check out this awesome list of included features:

 Aluminum Motor Plate

  • Manufactured in the USA from 3mm thick, 6061 T6 aluminum for serious strength and durability.
  • Green Gearbox Housing and MountsLocks in gear mesh for worry-free pinion to spur settings, eliminating fears of exploding spur and pinion gears from an overheated stock transmission case.
  • Offers significant motor heat dissipation for cooler motor temperatures, unlike stock plastic motor plates that insulate the motor.
  • Not integrated with the rear bumper mounts, meaning rear impacts will not bend the motor plate, (when used with a rear bumper or bumper mounting system such as RPM #80902 or #80905).

Molded Gearbox HousingsBlack Gearbox Housing and Mounts

  • Molded from our blend of bulletproof nylons in three popular color choices for guaranteed durability, strength and style.
  • Retains stock bumper mounting holes for positive, solid support of any bumper or wheelie bars you may choose.
  • Retains a stock “cover” for the motor, adding motor protection where most aftermarket housings leave the motor completely exposed to rear impacts.
  • We modified our housing to eliminate the huge bottom hole in the stock housing, keeping your internal gears cleaner, longer.
  • Quiet! With a completely enclosed gearbox housing, you’ll no longer have the loudest transmission on the track.
  • Redesigned exterior features are smoother; making it less likely dirt will adhere or build up on the case.
  • Separate housing and rear mounts means transmission maintenance won’t affect suspension settings.

Blue Gearbox Housing - AssembledMolded Rear Mounts (0° & 3° Rear Mounts Included)

  • Separate from the gearbox housing and easy to access. Each mount is individually accessible and removable without removing the transmission or vice versa. Simply unbolt 2 screws (and a hinge pin) to remove an A-arm mount or 6 screws to remove the transmission!
  • Sold with two sets of rear mounts in each package – 0° and 3° rear mounts are included.
  • Molded from the RPM blend of ultra durable, long lasting, bulletproof nylons.
  • Molded mounts means tighter tolerances and less slop than with machined components for better camber and toe angle retention.

Each RPM Gearbox Housing kit is available in black, green or blue and comes will all necessary mounting hardware and instructions. Whether racing or bashing, the RPM Gearbox Housing is one of the least expensive yet most valuable options you can buy! Every RPM Gearbox Housing kit is proudly designed and manufactured in the USA! Get yours today!

RPM Rear End - Shown with optional Accessories (not included)

Tech Notes: RPM Gearbox Housings do not include internal components (gears bearings, shafts, etc.). Internal components (either stock or aftermarket) must be transferred to the RPM Gearbox Housing from the stock Traxxas transmission. RPM #73612 replaces stock Traxxas #3691 (or #3691A).
