The Titan 12T 550 modified motor pumps out incredible mod-motor power with virtually maintenance-free operation, and long-lasting performance. The Titan’s integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through vent tunnels molded into the motor plate to keep temperatures down. A cooler running motor equates to faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life. The XL-5 Electronic Speed Control offers high current handling, EZ-Set one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control. Once reserved for high-end replacement ESCs, the XL-5 comes standard with three drive profiles, low voltage detection, thermal shutdown protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance. The patented Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for unrestricted current flow with today’s high-power batteries.
4-amp DC Peak Detecting Fast Charger
For quick, convenient, hassle-free charging, a 4-amp DC fast charger is included to maximize runtime and minimize down time. The included NiMH charger uses a 12-Volt DC power outlet for universal high-output charging. The brilliant LED provides charging status as soon as the battery is connected. The charger is optimized for charging your Traxxas iD Power Cell NiMH battery. Peak-detection circuitry makes sure the battery receives a full charge every time. The status LED flashes green to indicate when charging is in progress, then turns solid green when charging is complete for foolproof charging, peak performance, and maximum runtime.
To charge from a wall outlet, check out theTraxxas 2976 AC wall adapter.
Traxxas Power Cell NiMH Battery with iD
Slash 4X4 includes a Traxxas iDTM Power CellTM Battery Pack optimized for free-flowing power and maximum punch with premium quality, low-resistance cells; flexible, silicone-jacketed 12-gauge wire; heavy-duty welded tabs; and Traxxas High-Current Connectors. Traxxas iD chargers (sold separately) auto-detect iD-equipped Power Cell batteries and automatically set and optimize charge settings. Precision assembly with attractive, individually wrapped cells and clear overwrap complete the package.
XL-5 Waterproof Electronic Speed Control
The XL-5 Electronic Speed Control handles the elements while smoothly supplying power to the motor. This high-performance ESC packs impressive features that are normally only found on more expensive high-end replacement units. The XL-5 features a completely waterproof design, three throttle profiles, low voltage detection, Thermal Shutdown Protection, 4-7 cell NiMH and 2-cell LiPo compatibility, and built-in BEC. High frequency operation combined with ultra-low resistance make the XL-5 an efficient and ultra-smooth fully proportional speed control. The exclusive and patented Training Mode reduces the overall power output of the XL-5 by 50%, making it easier for young or new drivers to develop their control skills before unleashing full-power.
The Slash 4X4 never shies away from an adventure and, thanks to its fully waterproof electronics, neither will you. Experience 4X4 fun year-round no matter what the weather conditions. Water, mud, and snow don’t slow down the Slash 4X4; its electronic speed control, receiver box, and high-torque digital steering servo are all waterproof for no-worry fun. Drive the Slash 4X4 where you want, when you want – the only limit is your imagination.
Old designs made servicing of 4-wheel drive vehicles cumbersome and time-consuming. Traxxas has a better way. Modular design allows the entire front section to be removed with just 5 screws, and the rear assembly with just 4 screws. In less than a minute using a power screwdriver, you have full access for easy service and adjustment.
Precision 2.4GHz Control
Switch on the power and drive! That’s all there is to it with the TQ 2.4GHz radio system. There are no frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. Race multiple vehicles side by side without interference. The TQ’s advanced programming provides long-range control with smooth, glitch-free performance. The TQ’s ergonomic design is comfortable for all day driving with an internal antenna that is impervious to damage.
High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
An all-terrain truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance, and Traxxas delivers with the #2056 high-torque servo. This waterproof steering servo uses O-ring seals to keep the fun going when things get wet. Waterproof for all-weather action, the #2056 servo provides 80 oz-in of steering muscle. That’s twice the power of typical “standard” servos.
The Slash 4X4 chassis features a long 12.75″ wheelbase for added stability while offering nearly 3″ of terrain-conquering ground clearance. The chassis includes drain holes and a battery tray channel for routing servo wires to the receiver. Optional bosses in the chassis make it easy to upgrade to the Extreme Power of the Velineon Brushless Power System. For race track competition, a transponder mount is located under the front shock tower when every second counts.
Slash Short Course Tires
Realistic looks, realistic performance. Slash’s tires come pre-mounted to color-matching Split Spoke SCT wheels and have excellent grip in the dirt and just the right amount of slide on pavement.
Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks
The Slash’s oil-filled Ultra Shocks utilize X-ring technology for a perfect seal and super-smooth performance. They are fully tunable with a wide range of oils, springs, and pistons. Features include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and spring clips to precisely change the ride height and spring pre-load. They can be renewed in minutes with our inexpensive rebuild kits.
Slash 4X4’s telescoping, universal-joint driveshafts may look familiar but they have evolved for increased strength and articulation. Traxxas U-joint driveshafts allow for maximum suspension movement resulting in longer travel and tighter turning. Extra material and design tweaks greatly increase torque handling.
Sealed Steel-Gear Differentials
Slash 4X4’s differentials represent the state of the art in power handling and efficiency. Steel gears in the differentials are ready to handle brushless power without costly upgrades. Precision silicone gaskets and X-ring seals allow the diffs to be tuned for specific running conditions by varying the viscosity of the fluid inside them. Differential access for tuning is quick and easy. Just remove the front or rear cover and the entire differential slides right out.
Optimum-Geometry Steering with Integrated Servo Saver
No part of the Slash 4X4 was overlooked in the quest for durability, precision, and performance. The dual-bellcrank design pivots smoothly in the harshest conditions, and an integrated cam-type servo saver protects the servo gears from crash impacts without sacrificing steering precision.
Heavy-Duty 32-Pitch Gears
Extreme brushless horsepower is never an afterthought at Traxxas. The Slash 4X4 driveline is built to handle power for today and accommodate future power upgrades down the road. The spur gear features rugged 0.8 module/32-pitch teeth for total reliability no matter how much power you pour on.
The Slash’s ultra-plush suspension swallows up jumps and delivers incredible rough-track control. All that travel gives Slash 4X4 a truly authentic look and handling response that accurately simulates real-world short course racing. The fully-optimized front axle carrier is a result of computer modeling that allowed engineers to design for maximum articulation without binding or interference. Tight steering response is always there, even at the extreme ranges of the suspension travel.
Torque-Control Slipper Clutch
Another Traxxas exclusive, Slash 4X4’s patented slipper clutch design uses special semi-metallic friction material and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent traction control. The slipper is easily adjusted without disassembly or removal, and the unique 3-pad design is proven rugged in Traxxas’ most powerful electric and nitro vehicles. It’s the perfect complement to Velineon brushless power and 4WD, offering the ultimate in traction control.
The Traxxas Slash set the standard for Short Course RC style and the Slash 4X4 carries it to the next level with an even more aggressive and realistic stance. Sharper edges, bolder curves, and proportions that scream speed signal the horsepower that lurks beneath. Body mounting holes are identical to the 2WD Slash.
