This is the Traxxas Sledge 1/8 scale 4WD brushless monster truck. Fully assembled, Ready-To-Race, with TQi 2.4GHz radio system, VXL-6s brushless power system, and ProGraphix clipless body.
REDEFINING 1/8 SCALE OFF-ROAD
Engineered. Tested. Built to a higher standard. The all-new Sledge is made to exceed your expectations for quality, toughness, and fun. The rock-solid chassis, massive steel drivetrain, ferocious 6s power, and race-inspired handling leave everything else in the dust.
ENGINEERED FOR 6s POWER
Sledge is the only truck in this class with a properly sized, 6s-capable driveline. Bigger gears. More steel. Basically bombproof. Sledge smashes the status quo to be the new standard for extreme 6s durability.
SUPERIOR CHASSIS STRENGTH
Sledge is engineered to have the strongest chassis in the class. The triangulated chassis structure integrates a deep-formed aluminum plate with a multi-point composite truss system and the patent-pending full-length T-Bar. Built on a solid foundation, Sledge is strongest where it matters most.
NEW CLIPLESS BODY
Remove and replace the body in just seconds with exclusive patent-pending clipless body solutions engineered by Traxxas. Sledge’s clipless body goes on smoothly with a satisfying snap. The body is designed to come off when you release it.
Sledge is equipped with a high-performance metal gear servo that packs massive torque inside a heat dissipating aluminum center case. Powerful and reliable steering authority is assured with no upgrade required.
VXL-6s POWER SYSTEM
The Velineon VXL-6s features new hardware and new tuning specifically for the 2000kV motor. Together they deliver substantially more power under the curve for increased mid-range punch and hard-charging acceleration you can see and feel.
Premium Sledgehammer tires are standard equipment. No tire upgrade required. Durable foam inserts are designed to not bunch up or break down. Patent-pending Traxxas innovation improves the tire bonding process to reduce the chance of a blown-out bead while exploring the upper range of Sledge’s capability.
RICH PROGRAPHIX PAINT
Sledge's bold and bright ProGraphix body uses screened-on graphics that won't chip or peel for custom looks that last, run after run.
HIGH DOWNFORCE WING
Sledge's high-downforce wing puts the wind to work with molded-in wear pads to protect the wing against ground-scraping wheelies.
If things go upside-down, Sledge's Think roof skids take the damage to keep your body looking fresh.
Large-bore GT-Maxx aluminum shocks mount to the towers with 4mm screws for superior strength. X-ring seals glide on large-diameter shafts, and the spring retainers are secured with screws to stay put.
