This is the Traxxas Slash VXL 1/10 Scale RTR Electric 2WD Short-Course Truck. Introducing the latest member of the VXL family; the award winning, best-selling Traxxas Slash, now with extreme Velineon Brushless Power! Slash VXL crushes the competition with brute force acceleration and unmatched top speed. With the included Power Cell 7-cell NiMh battery, the Slash VXL rockets over 40mph. Install an optional 3S LiPo pack, and the Slash VXL blasts past 60mph! Slash VXL includes the Velineon Brushless Power System with LiPo-ready VXL-3s speed control and high-rpm Velineon 3500 motor.

But Traxxas didn’t stop there; for steering precision at maximum speed, the Slash VXL includes a new dual-bellcrank steering system with integrated servo-saver (originally developed for Slash 4X4). Heavy-duty universal-joint driveshafts were engineered to handle the massive brushless torque. Re-tuned suspension tightens up the handling for those high-speed runs. 60+mph performance requires long-range control, and Slash VXL delivers with the switch on and drive convenience of the TQi 2.4GHz high-output radio system with Traxxas Link. Slash VXL: because at Traxxas, having fun means going faster than everyone else!

TQi Radio System
The Traxxas® TQi™ radio system arrives with a full complement of tuning features, long-range 2.4GHz signal, and proven Traxxas reliability for rock-solid performance. It's so advanced, it doesn't even need an external antenna. The TQi radio system is equipped with superior Direct Sequence Spread-Spectrum (DSSS) technology, fully programmable features, and the convenience of patent-pending Traxxas Link™ automatic model recognition. The transmitter’s easy-to-use design provides the instant, worry-free, turn-it-on-and-go driving fun you expect from Traxxas, while also delivering pro-level tuning features for those who wish to explore the expanded tuning possibilities. The Multi-Function knob on the face of the transmitter can be programmed to control a variety of functions such as steering exponential, steering and braking dual rate, and throttle trim. Other tuning options include end point adjustment, servo reversing, and sub trim adjustment. The TQi 2.4GHz transmitter pumps out a strong, clear signal for optimum range. The 13ms frame rate and near zero latency results in instant steering and throttle response along with precise, smooth control. The TQi is compatible with the optional TQi Docking Base and Traxxas Link application.

Traxxas Slash VXL Brushless 1/10 RTR 2WD Short-Course Truck (w/TQi 2.4GHz, Batte
Traxxas is truly the king of "RTR!" I'm somewhat new to RC and decided to go with the Traxxas Slash VXL 2WD ready to race short-course truck kit. I was looking for a highly durable short course truck with a brushless motor already installed that I could take right out of the box and bash it on the first day I got it with out having to buy anything extra. This RTR kit lived up to everything I wanted. It comes all you need to have fun: a 2.4ghz radio, brushless motor, battery and an overnight charger. It's very quick, incredibly durable, and the components are water-proof...Out of the box, ready to run! It's great for back yard bash sessions and is just plain fun! And that's what RC is all about! Although I'm not really interested in racing this particular truck, I'll bet with a few upgrades (Lipo battery, RPM parts) this truck would be very competitive on the track. I highly, highly recommend this kit to absolutely anyone! From the beginner who's just getting into RC or short-course, to the pro-racer who just wants something to have some fun with in the back yard or on the track!)

i got this truck for Christmas last year and i thought it was a good truck and it is but it is too heavy for going over the jumps at my house. it has no traction i slide all over the place. the tranny is a pain to get to and the drive lines start to wear out THEN YOU PUT A LITTLE PIECE OF TOOTHPICK IN THE PLACE WERE IT IS WEARING OUT AND A LITTLE BIT OF GLUE AND THAT FIXED MY PROBLEM.)

this car is not is good for carpet racing, it cant catch the sc10, or losi xxx-sct. the chassis is way too high to handle the sharp turns. i would recommend getting this car for a dirt track or bashing. i would say that this is a lot more durable than a sc10 or xxx-sct.)
