Traxxas Stability Management
Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) makes it possible to experience all the extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered into Traxxas models by making it much easier to control the vehicle on common slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow. Punch it off the line and TSM goes to work sensing the vehicle’s direction and making steering corrections to provide straight-ahead full-throttle acceleration without fishtailing, spinouts, and loss of control. TSM also works during cornering, first making intuitive corrections to maintain the vehicle’s line, then hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. Braking is dramatically improved as TSM works to keep Traxxas trucks arrow straight until they come to a complete stop. Traxxas TSM gives all the benefits modern electronic stabilization has to offer without intruding on driving fun or introducing unexpected side effects that can be found on other systems such as drastically reduced turning radius, braking assistance that times out (quits), throttle restrictions, and an overall disconnected driving feel. Traxxas engineers developed superior tuning algorithms that run on high-speed, precision electronic components to create a system that works invisibly, in the background, without ever limiting throttle. TSM can be fine tuned (or turned off) for different surfaces by simply adjusting the multi-function knob on the TQi transmitter, or by adjusting the slider in the Traxxas Link app. The result is driving faster, with more ease, and having more fun. In fact, the driver may not even realize how much TSM is helping until it is turned off and their driving skills are tested without it!

Nitro Slash Award-Winning TRX 3.3 Power!
Proven Slash performance. Legendary TRX-3.3 Power! As only Traxxas can, heavyweight horsepower is combined with a lightweight 2WD chassis to deliver astounding performance and over-the-top fun. The award-winning TRX-3.3 engine gives the Nitro Slash tire-melting thrust that is far more than any driver needs--and exactly what every driver wants. It takes Traxxas-Tough durability and a stout drivetrain to handle the TRX-3.3’s outrageous output. Nitro Slash delivers with proven components that have made the Slash the standard for durability, and fun. The extra large capacity of the 150cc fuel tank keeps the action running longer between fill ups and the exclusive EZ-Start electric starting system makes starting as easy as pressing a button.

EZ-Start Electric Starting
With EZ-Start, there’s no need for starter cords, glow starters or their hassles. Instead, all you have to do is insert the EZ-Start into the starter port and push the start button. It only takes one hand! The Traxxas EZ-Start lights the glow plug and starts the engine in seconds, and exclusive Smart Start technology monitors critical starting functions, automatically sensing and diagnosing potential problems for troublefree engine starting every time. LEDs provide realtime status, even alerting you when a glow plug has failed.

Precision 2.4GHz Control Radio System
With the TQ 2.4GHz radio system, you just switch on and 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. To customize the Nitro Slash’s controls, the transmitter’s factory servo directions can be easily reversed through the simple programming system.

The World's Most Advanced Ready-To-Race Radio System
Nitro Slash is equipped with the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race radio system. The all-new Traxxas TQi arrives with a full complement of tuning features and offers the unbeatable convenience of "no channels, no crystals" 2.4GHz technology - but that's just the beginning. Automatic model recognition instantly recalls your settings for up to 30 Traxxas Link-enabled models. Just switch on and drive, no naming or "model memory" settings required. Power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! The new TQi 2.4GHz transmitter is fully adjustable: steering and throttle end points can be set precisely, and the Multi-Function knob can be programmed to control the TSM setting, Steering Sensitivity (Expo), Throttle Sensitivity (Expo), Steering Percentage (Dual Rate), Braking Percentage (Dual Rate), or Throttle Trim. TQi's ergonomic case design provides all-day driving comfort, and the unique internal antenna contributes to its sleek, modern look.

Traxxas Link Wireless Module Compatible
The TQi's most important new feature may already be in your pocket. The TQi can be equipped with an Traxxas Link Wireless Module (#6511, sold separately) that turns your Android, iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, (sold separately) into a powerful tuning tool for your Traxxas model. The full-color display combines with the free Traxxas Link App to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that unlocks the mysteries of optimizing your radio system for ultimate vehicle control. Traxxas Link also opens the door to telemetry capability when you add optional sensors to your model. The Traxxas Link Application is available on Google Play and the App Store.

Built Traxxas Tough
Nitro Slash is not only built to perform with its adjustable slipper clutch, disc brake, and race-inspired suspension geometry, it's also built Traxxas Tough for all-day driving fun. Nitro Slash's robust design keeps annoying breakage to a minimum so that the action can keep going on and on. The rugged 6061-T6 aluminum chassis forms a rock-solid backbone that also draws heat away from the engine. Full rubber-sealed ball bearings provide the ultimate protection and low maintenance for nitro environments. The Magnum 281 transmission uses a steel-composite planetary gear differential with built-to-last hardened steel gears. The gear diff requires no time-consuming adjustment and is virtually maintenance free. The oil-filled Ultra Shocks use exclusive X-ring seal technology for reduced friction and superior leak resistance. Traxxas engineers are dedicated to keeping you on the throttle, not on the workbench.

Nitro Slash comes as a complete package with professional factory assembly; installed high-power pistol grip radio system; a detailed setup and tuning DVD to acquaint you to starting, racing, and maintenance; and one of the most powerful Ready-To-Race engines available. Plus, Nitro Slash is backed by a team of R/C pros who aim to provide the highest level of factory support possible. Traxxas is there every step of the way to answer questions and help you get the most from your Nitro Slash.

Shipped Fast. Good truck. November 2, 2015
Reviewer: Brett from Sandy, UT United States  
I would suggest getting some rechargeable AA batteries as they will drain quick.

The EZ Start has worked great so far. Much easier than the bump and start method.

The glow plug wrench that Traxxas gives you is too short. I have difficulty replacing glow plug with cooling head protector on. Going to get something better.

Clutch spring broke on me pretty quick.  Adjusted clutch from 'trailing edge' to 'leading edge'. So far no problems.

After the first couple rides, check for any loose screws. I had a screw wiggle out of one of the shocks.

Any plastic pieces that break, try to replace with stronger after-market if possible. RPM makes good parts.

I have flipped this thing many times and seems pretty durable. When you start running into curbs, deep sand, and huge holes be prepared for some increased maintenance.

Great price on this site.
