Suspension & Chassis Innovation
From The Award-Winning Revo

Seven consecutive national championships has proven the superior design of the Revo-Spec rocker-actuated suspension system that mirrors the huge travel and plush damping of the full-size Pro 4WD short course race trucks. Full-time 4-Wheel-Drive delivers track-gripping traction for hard hitting acceleration through the turns and precise control that lets you thread the needle through the traffic. The patent-pending suspension has greater travel than typical nitro buggies and trucks, and can soak up big hits that would sideline other trucks. The suspension action is light and supple over small bumps, but when bigger jolts compress the suspension farther, the progressive rocker geometry instantly increases spring and damping rates to absorb the impact. And it's fully adjustable; ride height, progressive rate, and damping can all be fine tuned independently. This no-compromise setup is simply not possible with conventional suspension designs.

Slayer is built on the 3D semi-monocoque chassis originally developed for the Revo. Formed from 3mm 6061 aluminum, the chassis is titanium-anodized and T6 hardened for strength. The integrated battery box accepts 4 AA cells or a 5-cell rechargeable receiver pack (sold separately). The ultra compact throttle servo mount ties rigidly into the chassis and supports the air filter, and the low-profile receiver box protects our latest 2216 4-channel micro receiver. A blue-anodized crimp nut locks the antenna tube in place, so it stays put no matter how rough the racing gets, and an integrated roll hoop/carrying handle spares the TRX 3.3 engine from rollover abuse.




Slayer Blasts Past 50mph With TRX 3.3 Power!

Pro 4WD racing demands maximum horsepower to turn up the heat on the race track. Slayer punches hard with massive TRX 3.3 power. With its huge, wide powerband, bury the throttle at anytime to send all four tires into a raging fury of roosting dirt. The championship-winning TRX 3.3 Racing Engine drives a low-mass 2-speed transmission for amazing acceleration and top speed. The transmission is forward-only, eliminating the extra components and weight of reverse for quick-revving performance—top speeds can exceed 45mph out of the box and 50+ with an optional clutch bell, with tire-shredding acceleration off the line. The 150cc fuel tank developed for the Revo® Platinum Edition delivers extra run time between fill ups for hours of driving fun, and a high-flow dual-stage air filter and Resonator™ mirror-polish aluminum tuned pipe keep the TRX 3.3 engine breathing clean and running its best. The TRX 3.3 engine is an investment in performance for years to come, fully protected by the exclusive Traxxas Lifetime Engine Replacement Plan.


Authentic Pro 4WD Looks

With three full-size trucks in TORC competition, Traxxas knows how an R/C short-course racer should look and handle. Slayer's full-fendered bodywork captures the look of Mike Jenkins #47 Pro 4WD race machine, and the satin-finish wheels have a bead-lock look just like the real deal. For a track-ready look that performs, Traxxas' engineers developed a multi-terrain tread design and specially formulated rubber compound to give Slayer the perfect balance of forward traction and slip-angle in turns. R/C racing has never been so real.

Superior Engineering and Innovation


TRX® 3.3 Racing Engine
No other engine combines power, reliability and convenience as well as the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine. This high-performance powerplant features a precision composite slide carburetor for easy tuning and crisp throttle response, PowerTune™ blue-anodized cooling head, dyno-proven IPS crankshaft and multi-port rear exhaust. The TRX 3.3 engine is also equipped with Traxxas’ exclusive EZ-Start® electric starting system that makes bringing the Slayer as easy as pushing a button.




EZ-Start® Electric Starting
With EZ-Start, there’s no need for starter cords, glow starters or their hassles. Instead, all you have to do is insert the EZ-Start into the starter port and push the start button. It only takes one hand! The Traxxas EZ-Start lights the glow plug and starts the engine in seconds, and exclusive Smart Start™ technology monitors critical starting functions, automatically sensing and diagnosing potential problems for troublefree engine starting every time. LEDs provide realtime status, even alerting you when a glow plug has failed.


Mirror-Polish Resonator
Dual-Chamber Aluminum Pipe

Nitro engines rely on properly shaped exhaust pipes for maximum power and efficiency. The Slayer’s Resonator™ pipe was shaped with data collected from hours of dyno testing. The dual-chamber design is precisely tuned for low-rpm torque to get the Slayer off the line quickly, and a big horsepower hit on the top end for screaming speed. A mirror-polish finish looks extra stylish, but it’s more than beautiful—it’s also easier to keep clean.


GTR Aluminum Shocks
High performance off-road racing demands the most from shock absorbers, so Slayer is equipped with aluminum shock bodies to resist heating and deformation no matter how hard the suspension is pumping. Threaded collars allow ride height to be adjusted quickly and easily, without tools.


Extra-long Suspension Travel
Slayer’s inboard shock system provides the most bump-eating suspension travel possible, as well as greater adjustability. Tunable progressive damping rates and independent ride height adjustment can be set quickly and easily.


Nearly 3-Inches of

Slayer rolls over rough terrain with 2.95 inches of daylight between the chassis and the ground, giving you the confidence to tackle the toughest terrain.


Short-Course Racing
Style Tires and Wheels

Slayer rolls out on authentic wheels and tires that perform as well as they look. The multi-surface tread pattern grips tenaciously on the street and roosts hard in the dirt, all while looking stylish on satin-finish wheels. A unique dual-diameter rim design allows for realistic sidewall proportions without compromising suspension clearance and articulation, and performance-tuned inserts help the soft-compound tires resist cornering and acceleration loads, allowing you to jump, bash, and powerslide at will.


Large High-Volume Dual-Stage Air Filter
The Slayer’s high-output TRX 3.3 engine breathes clean air through a new, larger air filter. The dual-stage design traps large particles in the outer element, while the inner element flows clean air to the engine. The new, larger diameter foam elements allow greater airflow, and more air means more horsepower.


150cc Fuel Tank
More fuel means more drive time between refills, and with 150cc on board, Slayer stretches every run. A pull handle makes it easy to yank the tank open for fast filling, and the tank is specially designed to maintain consistent fuel flow no matter how rough the driving conditions. A lowered sump keeps the fuel pickup submerged, and baffles prevent fuel from sloshing out of the sump.


Compact Receiver and Battery
Box with Integrated Personal
Transponder Mount

The compact radio box accepts 4 AA alkaline batteries or a 5-cell flat rechargeable receiver pack (sold separately). The on/off switch is built in, and a blue-anodized crimp nut holds the antenna tube tightly so rollovers won’t yank it out. Ready to race your Slayer? A transponder mount is integrated right into the receiver box.


Digital High-Torque Steering Servo
Slayer steers with precision and authority thanks to its digital high-torque servo. With 125 oz.-in. of torque, the 2070 servo has up to three times the power of many other RTR vehicles’ servos, with the precision centering and fine control only a digital servo can offer. And it’s fast, too; transit time is just 0.16 second, giving the Slayer instant response to your commands.


Four Channel Micro Receiver
Traxxas’ new 4-channel micro receiver provides reliable reception and saves weight. It’s protected from the elements by Slayer’s enclosed radio box.



Titanium-Anodized 3D
Semi-Monocoque Chassis

Slayer’s uniquely sculptured chassis is made from a single sheet of T6-hardened 6061 aluminum and anodized with a durable titanium-tone finish. First seen on the ground-breaking Revo, the innovative design’s integrated engine cradle and deep central channel give the Slayer incredible strength while reducing weight.


Chassis Nerf Bars
Real door-to-door racing is possible with Slayer thanks to these chassis nerf bars that let trucks rub together without tangling wheels and causing a crash. The nerf bars also support the body to prevent “parachuting” over jumps. Full-size short-course racing trucks often shed body panels during a race, but Slayer’s shell will stay put.


Realistic & Functional
Front and Rear Bumpers

More than mere styling pieces, Slayer’s tube-style front and rear bumpers provide crash protection while adding to the truck’s realistic looks. The bumpers are designed to flex and spring back from impacts to protect the chassis and body.


Auto-Shifting Two-Speed Transmission
It takes more than a powerful engine to give a truck eyeball-flattening acceleration and high top speed; gearing is critical. Slayer features custom transmission ratios specifically tailored to suit the short-course racing style wheels and tires, and a quick-shifting two-speed transmission for a fast blast off the line and all the full-throttle speed you can handle. The transmission’s shift point is fully adjustable so you can set it to engage second gear as early or late as you like.


Torque-Control™ Slipper Clutch
Dirt-spraying, wheel-spinning launches are a blast, but when you want more controlled power delivery, a slipper clutch is the feature you need. Instead of spinning the tires, the slipper clutch literally slips to absorb excess power until there’s enough traction to put it down on the ground. The Slayer’s Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction material and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent traction control. Gearing can be changed without altering the slipper adjustment, and a center ball bearing maintains precise, long-lasting alignment with near friction-free running and virtually zero maintenance.


Large Diameter Disc Brake
With more than 45mph on tap, Slayer demands the best brakes. Traxxas delivers with a big 42mm steel rotor and semi-metallic brake pads that provide four-wheel braking with fine control, whether you need to scrub just a little speed to sneak under another racer in a corner, or a big grab of whoa-power at the end of a parking lot speed run.


Sealed Limited-Slip Differentials
Slayer’s high-tech differentials are designed to handle the intense power of the TRX 3.3 engine with adjustable limited-slip action. The differentials are precision sealed with Traxxas X-ring seals to hold silicone fluid inside. The silicone lube constantly flows back into the gear teeth to provide resistance to power-robbing “unloading” that often affects grease-lubed differentials. By changing the viscosity of the fluid, the amount of limited-slip action can be changed. In short, Slayer’s silicone-filled diffs give you better traction, handling and control.


Super-Duty Driveshafts
It takes a strong drivetrain to channel TRX 3.3 power to the wheels. Slayer’s oversized, true-curvilinear telescoping driveshafts permit universal joints to be fitted on both ends of the driveshafts. Universal joints operate with greater efficiency and less wear than conventional dogbone designs, and also permit greater suspension travel without compromising power delivery. Smooth-turning and virtually maintenance free, Slayer’s Super Duty driveshafts are a perfect match for its high power and off-road mission.


Sealed Pivot Ball Suspension
A Traxxas hallmark since the debut of the Revo, Slayer’s exclusive rubber-sealed pivot-ball suspension is impervious to contamination from dirt and debris and more easily adjustable than conventional designs. Flexible rubber bellows seal the suspension pivots without hindering operation, and rubber-sealed bearings minimize friction while warding off contamination.


Tight-Handling Progressive-2 Rockers
Conventional stand-up shocks can’t provide the multi-rate performance of Slayer’s rocker-actuated shocks. Unlike standard designs that offer the same amount of spring rate no matter where the suspension is in its travel range, Slayer’s Revo-derived design steadily increases spring rate and damping force as the suspension is compressed, keeping you in control. In addition to these benefits, the shocks are rigidly mounted to the chassis, protected from dirt, rocks, and crash damage. For more on Traxxas’ exclusive inboard shock system, click here.


ProGraphix® Painted Bodies
No need for a paint or sticker session; Slayer rolls out of the box ready for action with a factory-finished and mounted ProGraphix body and decals already applied for you, so its Ready-to-Race®. Traxxas Slayer Prographix bodies are available in red and blue themes as well as two race replica versions: Scott Douglas/Mike Oberg Edition (Amsoil®) & Rick Huseman Edition (Fabtech®).


Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Slayer is built for extreme offroad use, so only the best rubber-sealed bearings will do. Traxxas’ precision ball-bearings resist dirt and dust to deliver lasting low-friction performance, run after run.


Hex Hardware
Professional-grade hex hardware is used throughout for maximum durability and convenient maintenance. A black-oxide coating resists corrosion and gives Slayer an all-business look.


TQ™ Radio System
Traxxas’ proven radio system keeps you in complete control with a high-power signal for excellent range—up to a quarter-mile! Well balanced and ergonomically designed for comfort, the TQ transmitter features servo reversing, electronic trim adjustment, an LED low-battery indicator and fully proportional, digital control for total command of steering, brake and throttle.
