This is the Pro-Line Pre-Built Performance Transmission for the Traxxas Slash 2WD, Stampede 2WD, Rustler, and Bandit vehicles. This will work on XL-5 and VXL 2WD versions of these models. This is lighter and has less rotating mass than the stock transmission, meaning you will get faster acceleration and greater overall performance!
The Traxxas Slash is one of the most important and successful vehicles in the History of RC because it brought affordable scale realism to the masses. Since its release, racers have been modifying and hopping up every aspect of the vehicle to improve its performance but they have always been stuck with the heavy, non-adjustable and non-racing inspired transmission. Until now! After over a year of design, development and testing, Pro-Line is proud to release the Performance Transmission, which has been specifically designed to bring your Slash up to racing specifications. Every feature you would expect to find in a high-end race transmission is now available for your Slash. This new Performance Transmission is also a great addition to your Electric Stampede 2WD, Electric Rustler, and Bandit*!

Pre-Assembled - Install and Go!
Transmissions are complicated and have a lot of moving parts. Pro-Line has done the work for you and pre-assembled the transmission to get you to the track faster! All you have to do is Install and Go! The Sealed, Oil-filled Differential has been pre-filled with 5,000 weight diff oil and the slipper system has been pre-set for proper performance.
Sealed, Oil-Filled Gear Differential
The single biggest feature and upgrade over the stock transmission is Pro-Line’s Performance Differential. The design is based off of 1/8 scale buggy style sealed differentials and is completely tunable to current track conditions by changing the weight of the diff oil. The Differential features super smooth Steel Internal Diff Gears for the ultimate in durability, and 4 O-Rings and a Diff Gasket that seals against fluid leakage. You will be amazed at how smooth the differential is and how much it improves the performance of your vehicle.
Race Inspired Slipper System with Vented Discs
The Performance Transmission features a proven, race style slipper pad and plate system that is more consistent, lighter and runs truer than the stock slipper design. The plates are Hard Anodized Aluminum with Vent Holes, which reduces heat and improves slipper consistency. Pro-Line’s 86t Spur Gear is extra wide for durability and is not offset like the stock spur gear. This eliminates the wobbly spur gears! The Clear hard plastic Gear Cover has a removable rubber cap for easy access to adjust the tension on the slipper system. Adjustments can be made with the same 7mm tool that you use to remove wheel nuts.
Lightweight Transmission and Gears
Pro-Line’s new Performance Transmission has 20% less rotating mass and is over 20% lighter overall than the stock transmission. This allows quicker acceleration, less work for the motor and faster lap times. The bottom Diff Case Gear and Idler Gear are made out of super durable and lightweight high impact plastic, while the Top Gear is super strong Steel.
3mm Thick Aluminum Motor Plate, Full Ball Bearings, & Other Awesome Features
There are so many other awesome features that make Pro-Line’s Performance Transmission a must have. The motor mounts to 3mm thick Aluminum Motor Plate with cooling fins and a machined P-L logo, all of which acts as a huge heat sink to keep your motor running cool. High quality Ball Bearings are used throughout the Transmission and the Differential spins on huge 10mm x 16mm x 5mm Ball Bearings for incredible load capability. The Toe Block is molded separate from the Transmission Case allowing for quicker and easier access to the Transmission when tuning the Differential Oil. The separate Toe Block also opens up the possibility for different tuning blocks (Toe Angle and Anti-Squat) to be used at some point in the future. The Hardened Steel Outdrive Shafts will accept the stock axles, as well as any aftermarket CVD’s or drive shafts that you might have for your vehicle.
Pro-Line’s Performance Transmission is the ultimate upgrade for your Slash 2WD, Electric Stampede 2WD, Electric Rustler or Bandit*! No other company offers anything close to this type of performance upgrade for your transmission, so be the first at your track to take down the competition with your Pro-Line ProTrac, PowerStroke, and Transmission -upgraded Slash! These upgrades will transform your vehicle into a True Racing Machine.
