Titan® 12-Turn 550 Modified Motor
1/16 Slash 4X4 includes a powerful Titan 12T 550 modified motor with
internal cooling fan - an industry first for this class of truck! The
Titan's oversized armature (30% larger compared to 540-sized armatures)
features 12 turns of pure copper wire for big torque and increased
power-handling capabilities. The integrated cooling fan lowers running
temperatures for more fun behind the wheel. The Titan 12T requires very
little maintenance and provides consistent torque and high speeds
run-after-run, without fading.
The unique Revo®-Spec suspension geometry multiplies the
suspension travel to lengths normally found on larger models. It
provides true progressive rate performance that's light over the small
bumps and instantly tightens when compressed to resist bottoming out
over large jumps.
Oil-Filled GTR Shocks™
1/16 Slash 4X4 's super-smooth oil-filled shocks damp the suspension
and maintain control no matter how rugged the terrain. They are fully
tuneable and include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and
threaded spring pre-load collars for quick ride height adjustments.
All-Terrain Tires & Wheels
Each corner of the 1/16 Slash 4X4 comes wrapped in all-terrain tires,
pre-glued and mounted onto beadlock-style wheels. The tires deliver the
perfect balance of forward traction and side bite on asphalt, dirt, and
any other surface you throw at them. 12mm mounting hexes open the door
to additional wheel and tire combos to tune traction for specific
Race Replica Painted Bodies
1/16 Slash 4X4 rolls out of the box ready for action with a factory-finished and mounted ProGraphix™ race replica body. Decals come pre-applied, so its Ready-to-Race® as soon as you are.
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 channels or 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.
The TQ 2.4GHz micro receiver fits easily into almost any vehicle, and
features dual channel-1 steering outputs. The integrated LINK button
makes it fast and easy to bind the receiver, and the two-color LED
indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and
convenience. In the event of signal loss due to an accidental
transmitter switch-off or depleted batteries, 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.
Ball-Bearing Transmission With Torque Control Slipper Clutch
1/16 Slash 4X4's high-efficiency, heavy-duty transmission is built for brushless power when you're ready to Power Up.
An adjustable slipper clutch lets you tailor power delivery to suit the
terrain and your driving style, and turns every watt of Titan power
into pure performance.
Full-Time 4WD With Sealed, Silicone-Filled Differentials
silicone-filled differentials resist "unloading" for superior
performance and authentic handling as you drift the 1/16 Slash 4X4
through corners with precision and control. The viscosity of the
differential fluid has been carefully tuned for exciting on-road
performance, and the shaft-driven 4WD system delivers instant
acceleration with proven efficiency and durability.
Pivot Ball Suspension
1/16 Slash's pivot-ball suspension provides smooth suspension
articulation and easy adjustment. Rubber-sealed ball bearings ward off
dirt and increase precision while reducing friction and maximizing
durability. For extra security, the heavy-duty axle carriers capture the
universal-joint axles' crosspins with inner bearings—another example of
Traxxas' attention to every detail.
Slash features telescoping, universal-joint axles for optimum
drivetrain efficiency and maximum power transfer. The true-curvilinear
spline design operates freely, and the oversized U-joints set the
standard for strength and high-power durability.
Mud. Water. Snow. 1/16 Slash 4X4's waterproof electronics and fully
sealed receiver box let you make tracks in conditions that leave other
trucks parked at home. The antenna and servo wires route neatly through a
special watertight seal. To protect the receiver from dust and water a
custom shaped blue O-ring seals the receiver box.
Digital High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo
but powerful, the 1/16 Slash 4X4's 2080 servo cranks out 41.7 oz.-in.
of tire-turning torque with digital circuitry for responsive
control—even in water, mud and snow, thanks to its o-ring-sealed
Power Cell Series 1 NiMH Battery Pack with iD™
1/16 Slash 4X4 comes fully assembled and Ready-To-Race®
with an included iD Power Cell NiMH battery and 2-amp peak detecting DC
fast charger. This potent pack features heavy-duty construction,
16-gauge wires and Traxxas' exclusive patented High-Current Connector
for efficient power transfer, run after run. Everything you need to
power-up is in the box. Accessory Traxxas iD chargers (sold separately)
auto-detect Traxxas iD Power Cell batteries and automatically set and
optimize charge settings for unmatched charging safety and simplicity.
Your Traxxas RC vehicle and battery are equipped with the Traxxas iD
High-Current Connector*. Designed to handle high-current applications
and funnel maximum power to your vehicle’s electronics, the Traxxas iD
High-Current Connector also enables the charger and battery to
communicate. This means optimum charge settings specific to your battery
for quicker, safer, more complete charging and extended battery life.
Traxxas iD High-Current Connectors let you get the quickest, safest
charge for your battery.
Traxxas 2-amp DC Peak Detecting Fast Charger!
Slash 4X4 includes a 2-amp peak detecting charger for quick,
convenient, hassle-free charging. The charger uses a 12-Volt DC power
outlet for charging charging in the field. The brilliant LED provides
charging status while the battery charges. The peak-detecting charger is
optimized for charging Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery packs. Just plug
the included Power Cell battery in for a perfect charge, run after run.
Dual Battery Compartments
The 1/16 Slash 4X4 unleashes its full speed potential
with the included Power Cell battery pack, but for extended run time
and more "punch," the chassis' dual battery compartments let you add a
second NiMH battery pack and patented Traxxas parallel connector (both sold separately) to double the available battery capacity.
Quick-Release Battery Doors
Traxxas uses an innovative solution for easy battery installation.
Quick release doors snap open and closed in seconds for fast and easy
battery loading. There are no clips to lose in the field and the
potential for fast battery changes during pit stops opens the door for a
whole new class of electric racing.
Battery Cooling Vents
Artfully designed intakes and exits allow cooling air to circulate
through the battery enclosures to lower the temperature of the batteries
for maximum run-time and "punch."
Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Precision rubber-sealed bearings offer the ultimate in low-friction
performance and maximum protection in dirty environments. They are used
in all exposed locations and are virtually maintenance free.
Progressive Rate Travel
The unique suspension geometry increases wheel travel to lengths
normally found on larger models. Springs and shocks absorb small bumps
with ease, but stiffen progressively to resist bottoming out over large
Pro-quality, high-grade, metric hex-drive hardware is used throughout
for extra strength, and easy maintenance and repair. The black-oxide
rust-resistant finish provides a high tech-look and feel.
