Traxxas Drag Slash Review
Traxxas is no stranger to the drag strip and years ago released one of the coolest retro drag cars that had ever been created, and that was the Traxxas Funny Car. A couple of years later, Traxxas offered their "How to Drag Slash" conversion kit video, and it has been popular ever since. Now, it’s a few years later, and we have another purpose-built RC drag car, the Traxxas Drag Slash. The Drag Slash comes equipped with a high-power Traxxas Velineon power system. It also comes tuned for no-prep drag racing, making it one of the easiest ways to get into the RC drag scene.
