This is the Traxxas Slash VXL Brushless 2WD Ready-to-Race 1/10 Scale Short Course RC Truck with Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) and TQi 2.4GHz Link radio system (Traxxas Bluetooth Link Module Compatible - Module sold separately), Velineon brushless power system and Magnum 272R transmission . The truck is capable of 40MPH with using a 7-cell NiMH battery, or 60+MPH with a 3S LiPo! Battery and charger are sold separately.
Traxxas Slash VXL 2WD
The Traxxas Slash VXL puts you in the driver’s seat for intense fender-to-fender, high-flying off-road action. Since its introduction, the Slash has set the standard for durability, performance, and technology. Traxxas Stability Management puts Slash VXL’s tire-shredding power to the ground while making it incredibly agile and easily controllable. Extreme Velineon brushless power provides screaming 60+mph† speed while the advanced TQi radio system keeps everything under precise control. With just one drive you will see why the Traxxas Slash VXL elevates short course performance to a whole new level.
Traxxas Stability Management
Traxxas Stability Management TSM makes it easier to control your vehicle on slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow. Punch it off the line and TSM senses the vehicle’s direction and makes steering corrections to provide straight-ahead full throttle acceleration without loss of control. When cornering, TSM makes intuitive corrections to maintain the vehicle’s line, then hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. TSM also improves braking performance by keeping the front wheels arrow straight until they come to a complete stop.
The World's Most Advanced Ready-To-Race Radio System
The radio system is the sole connection between the driver and machine. It has to be precise, comfortable, powerful, and reliable. The Traxxas TQi radio system arrives with a full complement of tuning features; long-range, high-output, 2.4GHz signal, and proven Traxxas reliability for rock-solid performance.
Traxxas Link Wireless Module Compatible
The TQi's most important feature may already be in your pocket. Equip the TQi with a Traxxas Link Wireless Module (6511, sold separately) and turn mobile device into a powerful tuning tool. The full-color display combines with the free Traxxas Link™ App to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that optimizes 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.
5-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security
The TSM TQi 2.4GHz micro receiver uses an integrated LINK button for fast and easy binding. A two-color LED indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and convenience. Traxxas Link Model Memory allows the receiver to recognize up to thirty TQi 2.4Ghz Traxxas Link enabled transmitters. In the event of signal loss, the receiver will automatically return the throttle to neutral and hold the last commanded steering position. The Fail Safe programming is conveniently built-in and does not need to be set or activated. The 5-channel receiver features three telemetry ports to allow real-time data to be transmitted from your vehicle to the TQi transmitter.
Sealed Watertight Receiver Box
Slash VXL's receiver is fully enclosed for protection from the elements. The antenna and servo wires route neatly through a special watertight seal, and a custom blue O-ring seals the receiver box to protect the receiver from water. The receiver can be removed for service and aftermarket receivers can be installed without losing the sealing properties of the patented receiver box.

Digital High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
A race truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance. The waterproof steering servo (#2075) uses O-ring seals to keep the fun going when things get wet. The Traxxas digital high-torque servo provides precise steering authority and speed for wheel-to-wheel racing in the back yard or on the track.
With Integrated Servo Saver
The Slash VXL's steering bellcranks feature optimized geometry and a cam-type servo-saver to protect the servo's gears from crash damage without compromising steering precision.
Brutal brushless horsepower would stress ordinary drivetrain components to their limits, so Slash VXL steps up with extra-strong telescoping universal-joint driveshafts. The Traxxas-Tough driveline makes certain every watt of Velineon power is transformed into rocket-like thrust.
Designed from the ground up, the new chassis features a 13.2″ wheelbase while offering over 3.5 inches of ground clearance. The new chassis includes drain holes and a battery tray channel for routing servo wires to the receiver.
Chassis Nerf Bars and Body Mounts
Integrated chassis nerf bars offer side body support for door to door racing action. The body mounts incorporate reinforced washers to support the short course truck body during big-air jumps and high-speed runs.
Adjustable Steel Turnbuckles
Factory fitted, heavy-duty steel turnbuckles allow camber and toe tuning. The Slash VXL is completely adjustable right out of the box to fine tune handling agility and high-speed performance. Captured rod ends provide unmatched durability and they simply won't pop off.
Precision Transmission Case
Slash's Pro Series Magnum 272R transmission is engineered for extreme strength with its rugged, reinforced case. The case halves engage precisely to seal out dirt and debris, and create a rigid structure to support the motor, suspension arms, and optional wheelie bar. The thick 3.2 mm T-6 aluminum motor plate resists flex and acts as a heatsink.
All-Metal Internal Gears
Slash VXL's race-ready Magnum 272R transmission is built for massive torque with high-strength steel input, idler, and differential gears and large-diameter bearings. The input gear is keyed and press fit onto the top shaft for greater precision and strength than a pin-mounted gear.
Sealed Beveled-Gear Differential
Slash VXL's heavy-duty steel-gear differential is X-ring and gasket-sealed and filled with grease for all-around performance. It's easy to tune the differential's locking action by adding different viscosity silicone oil to suit surface traction.
The Magnum 272R's easily removable differential makes maintenance and tuning easier than ever. Disconnect the driveshafts and open the hatch to release the differential in just minutes.
Torque-Control Slipper Clutch
The Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction material and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent traction control. The semi-metallic friction material remains stable across a wide temperature range to provide smooth, linear engagement you can count on, run after run. Spur gears can be removed and replaced without altering the slipper adjustment.
Heavy-Duty Hub Carriers & Steering Blocks
The Slash VXL features heavy-duty ball bearing front steering blocks and rear hub carriers. They utilize large 5x11 mm ball bearings for long-term precision performance, smooth operation, and increased durability.
Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Precision rubber-sealed bearings offer the ultimate in super low-friction performance and maximum protection in dusty environments. They are used in all exposed locations on the truck and are virtually maintenance free.
