Traxxas Slash Short-Course RC Truck - Intense Short-Course Racing Action!
The award-winning Traxxas Slash short-course race truck puts you in the driver’s seat for intense fender-to-fender, high-flying off-road action. Full-scale short-course race trucks embody the spirit of Traxxas RC with their extreme 900+ horsepower racing engines full-throttle, dirt-roosting power slides, giant suspension travel, and 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 rear-wheel drive Slash is purpose built to fly over jumps and rip full-throttle through the turns. 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 real world 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 roost.

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 RC 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 tangled up.
Sealed Electronics Extend Your Driving Fun
Traxxas shocked enthusiasts with the release of our exclusive watertight, sealed electronics in the E-Maxx that provided the freedom to drive where you want to drive through water, mud, snow, and other wet-running conditions that wouldn't have been possible before. The proven XL-5 electronic speed control and the mini receiver are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom go places you might not have thought possible. It opens up a whole new world of adventure and fun. Wet muddy tracks are no problem for the Slash. The battery compartment makes it easy to install batteries and the clever design makes it quickly adaptable for either 6 or 7-cell running (hump packs or stick packs).
The Titan 12T 550 modified motor pumps out incredible mod-motor power with virtually maintenance-free operation, and long-lasting performance. The Titan's integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through vent tunnels molded into the motor plate to keep temperatures down. 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. Once reserved for high-end replacement ESCs, the XL-5 comes standard with three drive profiles, low voltage detection, thermal shutdown protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance. The patented Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for unrestricted current flow with today's high-power batteries.
Traxxas 4-amp DC Peak Detecting Fast Charger
For quick, convenient, hassle-free charging, a 4-amp DC fast charger is included to maximize runtime and minimize down time. The included NiMH charger uses a 12-Volt DC power outlet for universal high-output charging. The brilliant LED provides charging status as soon as the battery is connected. The charger is optimized for charging your Traxxas iD Power Cell NiMH battery. Peak-detection circuitry makes sure the battery receives a full charge every time. The status LED flashes green to indicate when charging is in progress, then turns solid green when charging is complete for foolproof charging, peak performance, and maximum runtime.
NiMH iD Power Cell BatteryTraxxas Power Cell NiMH Battery with iD
Slash's included 8.4V 3000mAh Power Cell battery pack is optimized for free-flowing power and maximum punch with premium quality, low-resistance cells; flexible, silicone-jacketed 12-gauge wire; heavy-duty welded tabs; and Traxxas High-Current Connectors. Traxxas iD chargers (sold separately) auto-detect iD-equipped Power Cell batteries and automatically set and optimize charge settings. Precision assembly with attractive, individually wrapped cells and clear overwrap complete the package.

NOTE: This car does 30mph when you fit the optional 23 tooth pinion gear, which is included in the pack. As standard it does around 25mph so that it's a little slower whilst you familiarise yourself with the car. Note: No RC car doing more than 20mph will survive a crash into a solid object like a kerb without damage. This product is absolutely not suitable for under 14s.
TRAXXAS READY TO RUN BATTERY AND CHARGER OPTIONS
This car comes with a 3000mah 8.4v Battery and a DC Fast Charger. The DC Charger has a "cigar lighter" style plug and can be used in almost every car in the UK. We optionally offer (in addition to the items in the box) the following items which you can add:
Extra Batteries - an extra 3000mah 8.4v Battery. These are available in both "Hump" and "Flat" styles. Both styles fit this car. The hump battery has more concentrated weight, the stick style spreads it over a wider area - it's purely personal preference which you use. Note that Traxxas cars use a heavy duty battery plug which isn't the standard "Tamiya" or "Deans-style" fitting used by other brands. Mains Power Supply - this is a 40 watt mains power supply with a UK plug. The unit allows you to use the included 12v charger in the house, whilst maintaining the high charge current for fast charging.
