Traxxas Slash 4X4 VXL Brushless 1/10 4WD RTR Short Course Truck (Fox)
My radio wouldnt bind, seems like this is a huge problem with Traxxas radios. I'm gonna tinker with it a bit to see if I can get it working before I wait forever for a replacement. I'm using a different tx/rx for the moment.

The truck is solid, quick and a blast to bash around. It handles the skate park near me with ease and screams in the dirt.

Get the aluminum shock caps immediately, the plastic ones leak and crack. The high CG chassis this comes with is best if you're bashing around in dirt or grass but tends by nature to cause rollover if you're on pavement. Upgrade knuckles and drive arms if you're going to put more power in it, and regardless get a fan for the motor and esc to prevent thermal shutdown if you drive like a drunken idiot (like me). Radio problems aside this is a seriously fun wheeler for the price.

What a fun and fast truck. I recommend upgrading the shocks, axles, and adding a cooling fan if you are running the Traxxas 3cell LiPo Battery. This things screams speed.

I have had a bunch of these over the years. They are by far the best out of the box truck. They can take a beating and stop so hard on any surface. Long run times with a good battery and you can have a lot of fun with this truck without feeling like you're abusing it.

I really love the slash 4x4 I used to have a 2wd but with this 4x4 OMG it's a lot more fun and can be controlled much better that a 2wd I really love the body on it I've been getting a lot of compliments on it and I gave them your website where I got it from in case they wanted to purchase one. But I really love this slash 4x4 I also purchased a battery charger which I also love it's easy to use. Thank you Again Hobbies

I think this is a stellar vehicle, but if you're planning on running it hard, keep in mind it'll get very expensive. I've planned on racing this version at the track, however, it's not nearly ready box stock.

Plan on doing the Stage 3 upgrades because running it hard and fast, whether at the track or off-road, things WILL break. A LOT. I didn't get a full battery cycle out of it before the shock cap broke off and spilt oil everywhere.

I did the Stage 3 upgrades and it rips now and is much tougher. I recommend this immediately because as we all know, RCs break all the time! This isn't an exception. Of you want something tougher out of the box, GET THE SLASH ULTIMATE EDITION.

As for this rig, I love the Fox Edition body and most of the components are great.

Recommended upgrades:
-LCG Chassis
-Titanium turnbuckles
-TRX hubs, casters, etc
-GTX Suspension (w/ TLR oil-45wgt in the front and 40wgt in the rear)
-A arms/suspension arms

Otherwise, this thing is rad and easily upgradable, just gets expensive. As for amainhobbies.com, there's no other company I do more business with unless they don't have a product I want (can get). Amain's customer service is THE BEST, and not many companies boast this type of service anymore. They are so helpful and ALWAYS available!!!

One of the best Traxxas Vehicles. Why?
Fast, light weight, stable, powerful and fun. Needs only a single 2S or 3S battery.
It has tons of upgrades and parts availability. You can even make it a super start ultra speed buggy with a conversion.
Love it for years.

New to the RC world…just took my brand new Slash 4x4 out on the grass with no hills and ended up breaking the plastic from arms…very disappointed…tried calling customer support but of course they are closed on a Saturday??? Anyways for the first ten minutes it was awesome…very fast and very responsive however I didn’t think I would have experienced such a breakdown on day 1! I understand stuff happens but I didn’t run the truck hard at all! 1 roll over and the front end is effed! Frustrated but not quitting…

All four stub axles broke in the first four days. Very disappointed paying $380 for this truck and every time I take it out it breaks. Now I ordered extreme heavy duty parts to see if that will last longer.

Throw out the radio gear it is never going to work. 2009 wants its sweatshop mistake back. The traxxas app also putrid rot a solid display of mopishness. Don't waste your time just discard radio gear. If it does work don't worry it won't work twice. Two kits in a row. Traxxas is bad and junky like hpi rs4 sport 3 put them out of business yet they still sell it I didn't want to steer that's for rich kids. 2009 forever don't waste your patience or time and money. Horrid lack of quality. Shame on them. Warranty is not worth dealing with.
