Traxxas Slash VXL 2WD - The classic truck with extra punch!
Since the original 2WD Traxxas Slash was introduced it has set the standard for RWD Short Course Trucks - now the VXL version not only offers a brushless Velineon 3500kv motor and 3S compatible ESC, but also brings the Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) system to the platform, benefiting everyone trying to get all that power through the rear wheels, while thrashing it round a gravel track. With VXL brushless power and TSM, the Slash VXL’s can offer both tire-shredding power while still being incredibly agile and easy to control.
The Velineon components are optimized to work together, engineered from the start to deliver superior efficiency, speed and run time. Using the different types of battery, you can adjust the power of the Slash VXL to adjust it to your skill level, making it easy to get to grips with the car with less power, and unlock more power as your skills develop. The Slash VXL accepts a wide range of battery types, from 7.2V NiMH to 11.1V 3S LiPo packs. These packs pump out over 11 volts of power for speeds beyond 100+ km/h! The built-in low-voltage detection in the VXL-3s ESC helps you maintain your LiPo battery packs in top condition.
