The Traxxas Slash short-course race truck puts you in the driver's seat for intense fender-to-fender, high-flying off-road action. Bring home the thrill of 900+ horsepower full-scale racing and head-to-head competition to your own backyard. The rear-wheel drive Slash is purpose built to fly over jumps and rip full-throttle through the turns. The Slash hangs it out for an all new way to challenge your driving skills. The 4-wheel independent suspension and racing tires carefully replicate real world driving and handling experience as closely as possible.
The Slash's exclusive watertight, sealed electronics provide the freedom to drive through water, mud, snow, and other wet-running conditions. The XL-5 electronic speed control and the mini receiver are sealed against the elements. It opens up a whole new world of adventure and fun.
Switch on the power and drive! That's all there is to it with the TQ™ 2.4GHz radio system. There are no frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. Race multiple vehicles side by side without interference. The TQ's advanced programming provides long-range control with smooth, glitch-free performance. The TQ's ergonomic design is comfortable for all day driving with an internal antenna that is impervious to damage.
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.
The Traxxas Slash is built for extreme Velineon™ brushless horsepower (sold separately). Simply bolt it in and a 7-cell NiMH battery boosts speed to 40+mph. Add an 11.1-volt LiPo battery and you have the potential to double your speed. Bigger roosts and longer hang-time are right at your fingertips. The included steel transmission gears, full ball bearings, and high-quality metal turnbuckle links are the winning setup for brushless durability. The factory-installed planetary differential is Traxxas-tough with hardened steel gears that never need adjusting! Perfect for long-lasting, all-day fun. An accessory battery hold down (5827X) is available for use with large capacity LiPo battery packs that can extend speed and run time. Compare the durability and features to others and you'll see that only Traxxas makes them truly brushless ready.
The Traxxas Slash model #58024 comes fully-assembled and Ready-To-Race® with the TQ 2.4GHz radio system installed and adjusted, XL-5 power system, a painted and decaled body, pre-glued tires, and detailed instructions. Simply add the battery and charger of your choice (sold separately) and 4 AA batteries to get the action started.
