Brushless Power

With an extremely brushless motor the Traxxas was built for pure speed. Reaching speeds up to 60 mph making it one of Traxxas’ fastest trucks out there. Apart from being remarkably fast the Slash comes equipped with some top notch safety features such as the low voltage protection and water proof electronics you can drive this truck in any condition. With a very resistant chassis it helps it decrease drag and prevents snags.

High-Performance 4×4 Short Course Truck

The Traxxas Slash packs durability, performance, and fun into this short course truck. Outfitted with the powerful Brushless motor and bulletproof reliability of the waterproof VXL electronic speed control, the Slash takes on any high-flying, fender-banging, all-weather adventure you can throw at it. Grab your transmitter, rip some 4-wheel roost, and discover why nothing else is built like a Slash!

TSM (Traxxas Stability Management)

Thanks to the TSM you are capable of using it rougher surfaces and in slippery ones too. Based on you’re preference you can either tune it or completely turn it off. The best part is that it doesn’t affect you’re battery life in any way.

Modular Simplicity

Old chassis designs made servicing of 4-wheel drive vehicles cumbersome and time-consuming. Traxxas has a better way. The Modular design allows the entire front section to be removed with just 5 screws, and the rear assembly with just 4 screws. In less than a minute using a power screwdriver, you have full access for easy service and adjustment.
