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!

The starter battery stays with the EZ-Start, eliminating the need to carry the speed-robbing weight of extra batteries on-board.
The World's Most Advanced Ready-To-Race Radio System
Slayer Pro 4X4 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 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.
Suspension & Chassis Innovation From The Award-Winning Revo 3.3
Eight National Championship titles have proven the superior design of the Revo-Spec rocker-actuated suspension system that mirrors the huge travel and plush damping of the full-size Pro 4X4 short course race trucks. Full-time 4-Wheel-Drive delivers track-gripping traction for hard hitting acceleration through the turns and precise control that lets you thread the needle through the traffic. The geometry of the patent-pending suspension design multiplies the total wheel travel to soak up big hits that would sideline other trucks. The suspension action is light and supple over small bumps, but when bigger jolts compress the suspension farther, the progressive rocker geometry instantly increases spring and damping rates to absorb the impact. And it's fully adjustable; ride height, progressive rate, and damping can all be fine tuned independently. This no-compromise setup is simply not possible with conventional suspension designs.
Slayer Pro 4X4 is built on the long-wheelbase 3D semi-monocoque chassis originally developed for the Revo 3.3. Formed from 3mm 6061 aluminum, the chassis is blue-anodized and T6 hardened for strength. The integrated battery box accepts 4 AA cells or a 5-cell rechargeable receiver pack (sold separately). The ultra-compact throttle servo mount ties rigidly into the chassis and supports the air filter, and the low-profile receiver box protects our latest 5-channel 2.4GHz Traxxas Link-enabled micro receiver. A blue-anodized crimp nut locks the antenna tube in place, so it stays put no matter how rough the racing gets, and an integrated roll hoop/carrying handle protects the TRX 3.3 engine from rollover abuse.
Authentic Pro 4X4 Looks
With four full-size trucks in TORC competition, Traxxas knows how an R/C short-course racer should look and handle. Slayer Pro 4X4's full-fendered bodywork captures the look of the full-size Pro 4X4 race machines, and the chrome split-spoke wheels have a bead-lock look just like the real deal. For a track-ready look that performs, unique treads molded in a specially formulated rubber compound give Slayer Pro 4X4 the perfect balance of forward traction and slip-angle in turns. Four Race Replica body styles are offered, each fully decorated with graphics licensed from the full-size trucks.
