The Slash 4X4 is a short-course truck done the Traxxas way: dirt-spitting, bump-jumping fun right out of the box, with a radio system that virtually anyone can master. For control, it’s equipped with a low-CG chassis, a new steering system, and Traxxas Stability Management. For power, the Slash boasts the Velineon 3500 brushless motor with new shaft drive, plus an OBA, or onboard audio system, that mimics the sound of a Ford Racing V8 engine. And to ensure it can handle any terrain you throw at it, this four-wheel-drive truck features BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A tires and brand-new racing suspension.
Note:Each vehicle color—Black, Blue, Red, and Silver—will be chosen at random as we fulfill each order.
Traxxas Stability Management, introduced by the company in 2015, acts as an invisible co-pilot to give you intuitive control of the Slash VXL. TSM will constantly measure the attitude of the vehicle and make corrections to keep your Slash pointing in the direction you want it to go at blistering speeds. And thanks to the Velineon 3500 brushless motor, the vehicle can hit out-of-box speeds of up to 40 miles per hour with the included 4,200-megahertz Series 4 7-cell battery pack. This power truly comes alive with the OBA, which works proportionally with the speed controller so that the engine revs in tandem with the speed of the vehicle. There’s even a launch/burnout setting. Simply flip a switch, and the audio system will begin revving while the vehicle is stationary. Flip the switch again to set the tires in motion, spinning and revving wildly.
The two-channel Traxxas TQi offers an advanced design that makes using it easy. Radio programming is accomplished with just two buttons. TQi has all the basic features, like servo reversing and trims, but can also do much more: endpoint adjustment, throttle, and steering sensitivity are all features that can be assigned to the Multi-Function Knob, which combines with an ergonomic grip to make for a rock-solid radio. For the full experience, you can purchase the TQi docking base, which is compatible with most Apple and Android devices. Once you’ve downloaded the Traxxas app, you’ll have visual access to real-time telemetry data, customizable dashboards, steering, and anti-lock braking rates, plus the ability to manage the profiles of up to 30 different Traxxas models, meaning your entire lineup of Traxxas RC cars can be controlled with one device.
