Traxxas Slash VXL 1/10 RTR 2WD Short Course Truck (Fox Racing)
Well this fox edition was purchased for my older brother as a Christmas gift. So it’s not opened yet. I purchased the Hawaiian vxl 2wd and it still my favorite rc to drive. The only difference I’ve noticed between fox and Hawaiian is the rim color, body, and tread patten, I can’t remember the name of the tires but I loved both! The bfg Goodrich ones definitely gave me a more scale look.
I remember when I first put a 35c 2s in mine and it was nothing but smiles. So after like 5 charges ran through I felt I was man enough for 3s, and of course I started off with a full trigger squeeze... it was epic the tsm kept it straight and it blew the tires off for about 10-15’ then front tires lifted up back number scrapped it came down about halfway then literally flipped on its lid and slide down my street for about 30-40’!! I felt nothing but excitement! So I ran to it and did it probably 4-5 more times. Slash vxl 2wd is and amazingly fun and extremely durable rc! From beginner to basher to racer it works! I could keep going but I think after reading this you’ll understand how I feel about slash vxl 2wd.

I got 2 of these slashes. The kids love em but they seem to break a lil easy. A rear hub broke in the rear on both and one servo stripped out. Everythings good though because amain has got your back. There customer service is top notch! Over all I'm pleased witht them

This thing is fast, with the stock gearing and a 2S it’s nice and controllable while not being too insane, with a 3S things get rowdy and with the included gearing for 60mph it’s insane! Even geared high it still doesn’t overheat and is still very quick off the line. The RWD makes maintenance a bit easier and looks great shooting dirt 10 feet out the back when drifting.

Traxxas Slash VXL 1/10 RTR 2WD Short Course Truck (Fox Racing)
Ordered my truck on a Saturday night and it was delivered Wednesday. Everything I ordered was in the box in perfect condition, I’m very impressed how fast I received my order, although I didn’t get a packing slip in the box, no big deal. Fast delivery, great service and price’s. I’ll be ordering from them again!!! Oh, the truck on 3S is unreal, so fast no need for the optional gear, maybe on the road. If you can drive this truck at full throttle on a short backyard course with 3S your bad O!!!

Traxxas Slash VXL 1/10 RTR 2WD Short Course Truck (Fox Racing)
WOW! Seriously this thing is great on 2S, insane on 3s. I know a lot of people complain that this isn't the best shortcourse truck, sure if you are a full-time racer at your track there are better options. But after adding the LCG chassis and some better tires from proline it sticks like glue. But the best part, I can hand the controller to my 6yr old and let her bash away stress free. Damn near bulletproof.
