 Product Description

Traxxas Stability ManagementTM

Traxxas Stability ManagementTM (TSM) makes it possible to  experience all the extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered  into Traxxas models by making it much easier to control the vehicle on common  slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow.  Punch it off the line and TSM goes to work sensing the vehicle’s direction and  making steering corrections to provide straight-ahead fullthrottle acceleration  without fishtailing, spinouts, and loss of control. TSM also works during  cornering, first making intuitive corrections to maintain the vehicle’s line,  then hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds.  Braking is dramatically improved as TSM works to keep Traxxas trucks arrow  straight until they come to a complete stop. Traxxas TSM gives all the benefits  modern electronic stabilization has to offer without intruding on driving fun  or introducing unexpected side effects that can be found on other systems such  as drastically reduced turning radius, braking assistance that times out  (quits), throttle restrictions, and an overall disconnected driving feel.  Traxxas engineers developed superior tuning algorithms that run on high-speed,  precision electronic components to create a system that works invisibly, in the  background, without ever limiting throttle. TSM can be fine tuned (or turned  off) for different surfaces by simply adjusting the multi-function knob on the  TQi transmitter, or by adjusting the slider in the Traxxas Link app. The result  is driving faster, with more ease, and having more fun. In fact, the driver may  not even realize how much TSM is helping until it is turned off and their  driving skills are tested without it!

Everything is waterproof and Traxxas-tough as you’d expect. This is short course performance on a whole new level! (click here for more details)

 

 

Precision 2.4GHz Control   Traxxas Slash 4X4 is equipped with the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race® radio system. The all-new Traxxas® TQi™ arrives with a full complement of tuning features and offers the unbeatable convenience of "no channels, no crystals" 2.4GHz technology—but that's just the beginning. Automatic model recognition instantly recalls your settings for up to 30 Traxxas Link-enabled models. Just switch on and drive, no naming or "model memory" settings required. Power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! The TQi 2.4GHz transmitter is fully adjustable: steering and throttle end points can be set precisely and the Multi-Function knob can be programmed to control Traxxas Stability Management (TSM), Steering Sensitivity (Expo), Throttle Sensitivity (Expo), Steering Percentage (Dual Rate), Braking Percentage (Dual Rate), or Throttle Trim. TQi's ergonomic case design provides all-day driving comfort, and the unique internal antenna contributes to its sleek, modern look.

Training Mode™ Traxxas' exclusive patented Training Mode let's everyone get in on the racing action. Just press a button to  limit full-throttle power to 50%. This allows young or new drivers to  safely develop their control skills before unlocking full power Traxxas Slash 4X4. Training mode even makes it easy to hand the  transmitter over to your friends who have never driven a radio  controlled truck before.

5-channel Micro Receiver w/ Fail Safe The TQi 2.4GHz micro receiver fits easily into any vehicle, and features dual channel-1 outputs for easy installation in vehicles with dual steering servos—no Y-harness necessary! 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. Traxxas Link Model Memory allows the receiver to recognize up to thirty TQi 2.4Ghz Traxxas Link enabled transmitters—just switch on and drive. In the event of signal loss due to an accidental 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 built-in and does not need to be set or activated. Three telemetry ports are incorporated in the 5-channel receiver to allow real-time data to be transmitted from your Traxxas model to the TQi transmitter.

 

Sealed Watertight Receiver Box   Slash 4X4's receiver is fully enclosed for protection from the elements. The antenna and servo wires route neatly through a patented 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 box.

 

  Modular Simplicity

Old designs made servicing of 4-wheel drive vehicles cumbersome and time-consuming. Traxxas has a better way. The Slash 4X4's modular design allows the entire front section to be removed with just five screws, and the rear assembly with just four screws. In less than a minute using a power screwdriver, you have full access for easy service and adjustment.

Traxxas High-Current Connector   The patented Traxxas High-Current Connectors are designed to handle high-current applications and funnel maximum power to your vehicle’s electronics.

 

Maxx Cable 12-Gauge Wire   This  super-flexible, high-current, low-resistance 12-gauge, wire acts like a  series of giant pipes, flowing energy in and out of the electronic  speed control. The patented Traxxas Connector combined with Maxx cable  is a better engineered solution for extracting all the power your  battery has to give.

 

Hex Hardware   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.

 

Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings   Precision 5x11mm rubber-sealed bearings offer the ultimate in super low-friction performance and maximum protection in dirty environments. They are used in all exposed locations on the truck and are virtually maintenance free.

 

Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks™   High-speed off-road action requires rugged, responsive shocks that can take abuse. Traxxas Ultra Shocks are proven tough as stock equipment for Traxxas Maxx trucks. The high-volume body yields large oil capacity, and a silicone bladder separates oil from air within the shock for consistent damping action, even during all-day off-road sessions. Dual X-ring seals give super-smooth performance without weeping or leaking, and Ultra Shocks are fully tunable with a wide range of oils, springs, and pistons.

 

Digital High-Torque Waterproof Steering Servo   A race truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance. A Traxxas digital high-torque, ball bearing steering servo comes standard for precision control, quick response, and unmatched torque—all in a waterproof case. It has over 50% more torque than the Rustler's 2056 servo and is 25% faster! That's 125 oz-in torque, 0.16-second speed!

 

Extruded Aluminum Driveshaft   Slash 4X4's center driveshaft is formed from extruded aluminum. There are no dogbones to wear, no drive cups to wobble. The extrusion process allows the shaft to be hollow and lightweight with internal splines that fit directly and securely onto the input shafts of the front and rear drive assemblies. The shaft runs perfectly straight and true and offers superior durability. Traxxas engineers highlighted this important innovation with vivid blue anodizing and a laser-etched Traxxas logo.

 

Single-Screw Motor Access Inspired by the innovative E-Revo, Slash 4X4 features a unique mount  that holds the Velineon 3500 motor securely yet releases instantly with  just one screw. Gear-mesh adjustments are fast and easy and the motor  can be removed in just seconds.

 

Revo-Spec® Differentials   Race-proven in the 7-time National Champion Revo, Slash 4X4's differentials represent the state of the art in power handling and efficiency. 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. The Slash 4X4 let's you focus on having fun driving at the racetrack instead of being chained to the workbench scrambling through complex assemblies.

 

New Heavy-Duty Driveshafts   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. The shafts can even be used to upgrade Slash and other Traxxas models!

 

Revo®-Spec 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.

 

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.

 

MXL-6s Brushless Power System Compatible   Slash 4X4's chassis is designed to allow the massive MXL-6s brushless power system—which normally motivates trucks twice the weight of the Slash 4X4—to simply drop right in with virtually no modification. Overkill? Perhaps, but we couldn't resist going 80+mph. We don't think you will resist either, so the drivetrain is built to handle the horsepower and speed (standard chassis pictured).

 

Long-Travel Suspension   Slash 4X4 has huge amounts of seemingly bottomless, ultra-plush suspension travel for suspension action that 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. Double-shear tie rods and camber links simply can't pop off, so you always stay in control. Robust construction wards off crash damage, and oversized 10x15mm inboard bearings and 5x11mm outboard bearings are incredibly durable and smooth.

 

Optimum-Geometry Steering   with Integrated Servo Saver   No part of Slash 4X4 was overlooked in the quest for durability, precision, and performance. The new dual-bellcrank design pivots on rubber-sealed ball bearings for smooth action in the harshest conditions, and an integrated cam-type servo saver protects the servo gears from crash impacts without sacrificing steering precision.

 

Heavy-Duty 4mm Turnbuckles   Slash 4X4's turnbuckles have broad flats that make it easy to set toe-in and camber. The tough steel construction is ultra durable and the captured rod ends won't pop apart during rigorous off-road pounding.

 

Progressive Springs   New progressive rate springs are lighter through the initial range of travel to maintain traction and composure over the usual track ruts and bumps. Hit the big jumps and the springs tighten up to prevent bottoming the chassis at the extreme ranges of the suspension travel.

 

Aggressive Short Course Body   The Traxxas Slash set the standard for Short Course R/C 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.

Unmatched Customer Support and Parts Availability   Unparalleled Traxxas support comes standard with every Traxxas model. Traxxas offers the most extensive product support base in the industry and provides unrivaled parts availability.
