Build your own Traxxas Slash 2WD
The Slash truck is one of the world's best-selling remote-controlled cars, and now you finally have the opportunity to build your very own from scratch. Building your own car is not only a great way to learn about mechanics but also makes driving the car even more fun afterwards.
The Slash Assembly kit includes everything you need except paint and tools - even all the electronics for the car, except for batteries and a charger. Simply follow the detailed step-by-step manual, choose your favourite colour for the body and you're ready to get building!
The Slash 2WD chassis fully integrates the electronics and battery compartment for an efficient and compact layout, and maintains the high center ground clearance that gives Slash its short course truck stance. The high ground clearance drastically increases the off-road versatility that allows you to tackle terrain and grass. The waterproof ESC and receiver allow the Slash to blast through puddles, mow through mud and shred snow for wild all-weather fun.
The XL-5 ESC of the Slash 2WD can run on a wide range of voltages, making it really easy to get to grips with the new car on cheaper, less powerful 7.2V NiMH batteries, and simply purchasing more powerful 8.4V batteries once the driver is experiences enough to handle it. This makes it a really good starting point for kids for example, as they can start out slow and upgrade as they learn, rather than getting bored or having to get a new, more powerful car to keep them entertained.
Titan Power, unstoppable driving
With the included Titan 12T motor and XL-5 ESC the 1/10 Slash 2WD offers strong performance that makes the car a total blast to drive, while still being an easy way to get started in RC cars. The integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through vent tunnels molded into the motor plate to keep temperatures down for faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life. The XL-5 Electronic Speed Control offers high current handling, EZ-Set one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control. The XL-5 comes standard with three drive profiles, low voltage detection, thermal shutdown protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance - all features that were previously reserved for significantly more expensive cars. The patented Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for unrestricted current flow with todays high-power batteries.
Delivered with all electronics, except batteries and charger
The Traxxas Slash 2WD 1/10 assembly kit comes with a Traxxas TQ 2.4 GHz radio system and receiver, XL-5 ESC, Titan 12T motor and 2056 Water-Proof high-torque Servo. The clear body is pre-cut and comes with masking tape for the windows and decals, making the paint job a breeze. Tires and wheels are included, but you'll need some tire glue or CA glue for them as well.

We recommend using Traxxas EZ-Peak Fast Chargers and Traxxas 8.4V NiMH or 2S LiPo batteries with a minimum capacity of 3000 mAh. To maximise speed and run-time we recommend the Traxxas Power Cell 7.4V 5000mAh 2S LiPo Battery (requires EZ-Peak Charger) or the Traxxas Power Cell 8.4V 3000mAh NiMH Battery. For children we recommend Traxxas Power Cell 7.2V 3000 mAh NiMH Batteri.
*Top speed of 48+ km/h with 7-cell battery and included optional 23-tooth pinion gear.
