Crank Up the Fun!!
Grab the throttle and the On-Board Audio System roars to life,
projecting the actual engine sounds from a 900+ horsepower Pro 4X4 short
course truck. Prepare to experience the beat of every piston stroke,
feel the gear shifts under acceleration, and hear the horsepower as the
RPM's scream through the power band. Bash it, crash it, and get it wet.
No need to hold back...the sound system is just as rugged as the Slash
itself. Flip the rocker switch on the supplied 3-channel TQ 2.4 GHz
transmitter to put the truck in neutral to rev up the engine. The
precision audio and throttle response connects you to the truck for a
whole new driving experience. Traxxas On-Board Audio is the exciting new
dimension in Radio Controlled fun!
The award-winning Traxxas Slash Short-Course Race Truck puts you in
the drivers seat for intense fender-to-fender, high-flying off-road
action. The full-scale Short-Course Race Trucks embody the spirit of
Traxxas R/C with their extreme 900+ horsepower racing engines
full-throttle, dirt-roosting power slides, giant suspension travel, and
Supercross-style big-air jumps. The Traxxas Slash brings all the action
home so you can experience the high-speed head-to-head competition at
the track or in your own backyard. The Slash was inspired by the TORC
(The Off-Road Championship) Pro 2WD class. The Pro 2WD class specifies
rear-wheel drive trucks purpose built to fly over jumps and rip
full-throttle through the turns. The Traxxas Slash hangs it out for an
all new way to challenge your driving skills. The 4-wheel independent
suspension has been carefully tuned to replicate the Pro 2 driving and
handling experience as closely as possible. The scale appearing tires
provide just the right amount of bite and thick, blinding clouds of dirt
When the racing action cools down, the Traxxas Slash is well-equipped
to tackle all of your off-track driving adventures. The long travel
suspension and oil-filled shocks easily absorb jumps and rough terrain.
The unique chassis design provides huge center ground clearance to drive
over deep ruts, rocks, and other obstacles that leave ordinary R/C
trucks stuck. The tires use advanced tread design and sophisticated
rubber compounds to provide incredible grip off-road with enough
versatility to also perform well on concrete and asphalt. The fenders
cover the tires so you bang against your driving buddies without getting
The Revo-spec Torque-Control™ slipper clutch design delivers smooth
operation, precise adjustment, and consistent traction control. The
bellcrank steering system virtually eliminates bump steer for precise
handling and control. A digital steering servo delivers lightning fast
The Titan 12T 550 modified motor is designed for incredible mod-motor
power output with virtually maintenance-free operation, and
long-lasting performance. The Titan 12T 550 motor's integrated cooling
fan pulls cool air through the motor to keep temperatures down. Airflow
is routed through vent tunnels molded in the motor plate. A cooler
running motor equates to faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended
motor life. The XL-5 Electronic Speed Control offers high current
handling, EZ-Set® one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control.
Three drive profiles, low voltage detection, thermal shutdown
protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance are
all features you might expect to only be available on an expensive
replacement ESC. As today's batteries store more and more energy inside
their cells, traditional battery connectors could no longer keep up. The
included patented Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for
unrestricted current flow.
Precision 2.4GHz Control Radio System
With the TQ™ 2.4GHz 3-channel radio system, you just switch on a
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.
The included 3-channel TQ 2.4GHz transmitter is equipped with a
rocker switch that enhances the On-Board Audio by allowing the model to
be placed in "neutral", so the engine can be revved. After 10-seconds of
no throttle input, the engine shuts down. When it's time to start the
engine, just tap the throttle to feel and hear the surge of horsepower
as the engine starts.
Traxxas' exclusive patented Training Mode let's everyone get in on
the racing action. Just press a button to limit full-throttle power to
50%. This allows young or new drivers to safely develop their control
skills before unlocking full power to the mighty Titan 12T motor. The
Slash is perfect for drivers at all experience levels. Training mode
even makes it easy to hand the transmitter over to your friends who have
never driven a radio controlled truck before.
