Traxxas 1/16 Slash XL2.5 4WD (TQ/7.2V/DC Chg) RedNow you can experience the fun of wheel-to-wheel Slash 4X4 racing 1/16 scale with high-torque Titan 550 power--the largest motor in the "mini" class by far! At 14 inches long, the 1/16 Slash 4X4 is about half the size of the 1/10-scale Slash 4X4. But don't call it a "mini"-this is a whole new category of R/C performance and fun that no mere mini-model can match. Short-course styling that captures the attitude of the full-size Traxxas TORC-series racer is just the beginning. Beneath the Race Replica polycarbonate shell, you'll find the winning suspension technology of the eight-time National Champion Traxxas Revo® and the convention-busting innovation of the E-Revo.
Leave it to Traxxas to put the huge torque of a the Titan 550 motor into the 1/16 Slash 4X4! The powerful Titan 12T 550 modified is the same motor used in Traxxas' larger 1/10 scale models. The Titan 12T is designed for consistent torque and high speeds run after run. The XL-2.5 electronic speed control features patented Traxxas' High-Current Connector for ultra-efficient power flow. The XL-2.5 Electronic Speed Control offers high current handling, EZ-Set® one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control. Three drive profiles, low voltage detection, thermal shutdown protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance are all features you might expect to only be available on an expensive replacement ESC. Fully waterproof electronics are a Traxxas exclusive that opens the door to new driving adventures on rain-soaked asphalt.
The 1/16 Slash 4X4 doesn't slow down for rain. The waterproof servo and o-ring-sealed receiver box let you keep on racing, even in wet weather that parks lesser cars on the bench. The patent-pending sealed receiver box houses Traxxas' proven micro receiver and can accept aftermarket receivers as well, without compromising the model's waterproof properties. The new XL-2.5 electronic speed control and high-torque digital micro servo are sealed against the elements to give you total driving freedom.
As the Traxxas models are sold Worldwide and they are to be used outside the included charger only runs from a 12v cigar socket in a car, this is fine when you are out and about but not so convienient when using from home, so we sell a converter that you can use from the mains and plug the charger into, please see this optional purchase below.
