A New Category Of Off-Road Excitement
Slash set the standard short-course power, performance and versatility. Now you
can experience the fun of wheel-to-wheel Slash racing 1/16 scale—with Velineon
brushless power and 4WD! At 14 inches long, the new 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD is about
half the size of the 1/10-scale Slash. But don't call it a "mini"—this is a
whole new category of R/C performance and fun that no mere mini-model can match.
Short-course styling that captures the attitude of the full-size Traxxas TORC-series
racer is just the beginning. Beneath the factory-finished polycarbonate shell,
you'll find the winning suspension technology of the seven-time National
Champion Traxxas Revo®, screaming Velineon® brushless-motor power, and the
convention-busting innovation of the E-Revo.
Proven Traxxas Innovation
No detail was overlooked in our mission to bring all the capability,
durability, and excitement of Traxxas' award-winning models to 1/16 scale for
fast, affordable R/C fun. The Slash VXL 4WD is built on the race-winning,
track-proven innovation of the Revo and E-Revo models. The standard-bearer of
design excellence, the Revo's F1-inspired, rocker-actuated suspension has been
expertly adapted to 1/16 scale with all its functionality and performance
intact, right down to the oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks. This superior
technology provides capability, performance, and tuning functions at the
absolute pinnacle of truck design.The suspension and
electronics are fully integrated into the semi-monocoque chassis design that
stunned the world when it debuted with the E-Revo. Intricately molded as a
single piece, the chassis balances strength and weight, function and aesthetics,
convenience and performance to far surpass the standards of the "mini" category.
In 1/16 scale, it is an even more impressive achievement of packaging and
performance optimization that could only come from Traxxas, The Fastest Name In
Some mini-models are "fast for a mini." That's not good enough for Traxxas.
The 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD is just plain fast. At 30+mph with the included
6-cell NiMH battery, Slash VXL is nearly twice as fast as most mini models, and
faster than most electric RTR trucks of any scale. Install a second 6-cell
battery to unleash the Velineon Brushless Power System's full fury, and Slash
VXL jumps to over 50mph—all with proven-safe NiMH packs. No other RTR truck,
regardless of scale, makes it so easy and affordable to experience this level of
high speed and wheelie-popping power.
Velineon Brushless Power
All-new and built specifically for Traxxas 1/16 scale models, the VXL-3m
speed control and Velineon® 380 motor represent the latest in brushless
technology. Fully LiPo compatible with low-voltage detection for 2S and 3S packs
and rated for 6-12 NiMH cells, this potent, powerful combo gives E-Revo VXL and
Slash VXL 4WD precise throttle control and blistering top speed. Patent-pending
Training Mode™ lets new drivers hone their skills at 50% throttle. When drivers'
ed is through, full power and 50+mph is unleashed with a touch of the EZ-Set®
button. Big speed requires big horsepower, so E-Revo VXL and Slash 4WD VXL carry
the largest motor in the "mini" category.
Velineon 380 is built to the same no-compromise specs as the Velineon 3500 found
in Traxxas' 70+mph 1/10 scale VXL models. High-speed ball bearings. Sintered
rotor. Neodymium magnets. Gold plated 3.5mm connectors. It all adds up to 50,000
rpm of pure power and track-searing speed!
Waterproof Electronics For
No-Limits R/C Excitement
a hallmark of Traxxas vehicles, Slash VXL 4WD is the latest model to be equipped
with fully waterproof electronics to keep the fun rolling in water, mud and snow
while lesser cars stay on the bench. The patent-pending sealed receiver box
houses Traxxas' newest 4-channel micro receiver and can accept aftermarket
receivers as well, without compromising the 1/16 VXL models' waterproof
properties. The new VXL-3m electronic speed control and high-torque, digital
micro servo are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom go places
other cars wouldn't dare to venture.
The 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD is fully assembled with TQ radio system, Velineon
brushless power system, painted and decaled body, pre-glued tires, and detailed
instructions. A Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery and charger is also included,
making the Slash VXL truly Ready-To-Race®. Designed specifically for the
high-power needs of the Velineon brushless system, the potent Power Cell pack
features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas' exclusive
High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run. Traxxas
backs the Slash VXL 4WD and all of our products with top-notch support that is
second to none. A staff of skilled representatives is on-hand to answer your
questions via phone, website, or e-mail. Unmatched parts support allows the
Slash to be serviced with parts and support from thousands of hobby dealers
worldwide. Your investment is also protected by the Traxxas Lifetime Electronics
Warranty. Traxxas goes the extra mile to ensure that your R/C experience is easy
and fun (and fast!). Follow the details link above to go in depth on all the
Slash VXL 4WD performance benefits and also be sure to check out the videos page
to see it in action for yourself.

electronics, keeping things running cool and at full capacity.
Transmission With Slipper Clutch
1/16 Slash VXL 4WD's high-efficiency, heavy-duty transmission is built for
brushless power. An adjustable slipper clutch lets you tailor power delivery to
suit the terrain and your driving style, and precision ball-bearings make
certain every watt of Velineon power is turned into pure speed.
Silicone-Filled Differentials An industry first! Only Traxxas offers the superior
power-handling and tuning capability of sealed differentials in 1/16 scale. The
heavy-duty, steel-gear diffs are factory-filled with premium silicone fluid to
prevent unloading and maintain maximum traction and control. It's a Traxxas
innovation you won't find on any other mini-model.
Ball Suspension 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD feature pivot-ball suspension for smooth suspension
articulation and easy adjustment. Rubber-sealed ball bearings ward off dirt and
debris as they increase precision and reduce friction, and the oversized 8x12mm
inboard bearings maximize durability. For extra security, the heavy-duty axle
carriers are designed so the universal-joint axles' crosspins are captured by
the inner bearings—another example of Traxxas' attention to every detail.
Driveshafts 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD is fully equipped with telescoping, universal-joint axles
for optimum drivetrain efficiency and maximum power transfer. The
true-curvilinear spline design operates freely, and the oversized U-joints set
the standard for strength and high-power durability.
Mud. Water. Snow. 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD's waterproof electronics and fully sealed
receiver box let you make tracks in conditions that leave other trucks parked at
home. Traxxas' innovative, ground-breaking waterproof receiver box puts 1/16
Slash VXL 4WD in a league of its own. The antenna and servo wires route neatly
through a special watertight seal (patent pending). To protect the receiver from
dust and water a custom shaped blue O-ring seals the receiver box. Thanks to the
unique design, the receiver can be removed for service and even aftermarket
receivers can be used, without losing the sealing properties of the box.
Channel Micro Receiver
Traxxas' 4-channel micro receiver provides reliable reception as it saves
weight, and dual channel-1 inputs allow you to install dual steering servos
without the need for a bulky Y-harness. The receiver is fully
protected from the elements by 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD's waterproof receiver box.
Waterproof Steering Servo Small but powerful, the 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD's 2080 servo
cranks out 41.7 oz.-in. of tire-turning torque with digital circuitry for
responsive control—even in water, mud and snow, thanks to its o-ring-sealed
Tires & Wheels
Designed for all-terrain action, each corner of the 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD is
equipped with soft-compound tires that are mounted and pre-glued on impressive
beadlock-style wheels. The tires deliver the perfect balance of forward traction
and side bite on asphalt, dirt, and any other surface you throw at them. 12mm
mounting hexes open the door to additional wheel and tire combos to tune
traction for specific surfaces—even foam tires for carpet racing.
1/16 Slash VXL 4WD already blows the rest away with its 30+mph out-of-the-box
speed using the included 6-cell Power Cell NiMH battery pack—but that's just the
beginning of 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD's speed story. The chassis' dual battery
compartments let you add a second NiMH battery pack and Traxxas series connector
(both sold separately) for 14.4 volts of power. Install the included "speed
pinion," and top speed jumps to 50+ mph. All of this incredible performance
comes with safe, inexpensive NiMH power!
Series 1 NiMH Battery Pack
The 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD is fully assembled and Ready-To-Race®, right down to the
included Power Cell battery and wall charger. Designed exclusively for Traxxas'
1/16 models, the Power Cell Series 1 pack features heavy-duty construction,
flexible silicone-jacketed wires and Traxxas' High Current Connector for
positive plug-in with zero-loss efficiency.
1/16 Slash VXL 4WD uses an innovative solution for easy battery installation.
Quick release doors snap open and closed in seconds for fast and easy battery
loading. There are no clips to lose in the field and the potential for fast
battery changes during pit stops opens the door for a whole new class of
electric short-course truck racing.
Artfully designed intakes and exits allow cooling air to circulate through the
battery enclosures to lower the temperature of the batteries for maximum
run-time and "punch." Nothing was overlooked in carrying over all the design
innovation of the ultimate E-Revo chassis platform.
Innovative linkage-based suspension geometry multiplies suspension travel and
increases spring and damping rates as the shocks are compressed for instant
small-bump compliance without compromising shock-absorbing performance for big
1/16 Slash VXL 4WD's super-smooth oil-filled shocks damp the suspension and
maintain control no matter how rugged the terrain. They are fully tuneable and
include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and threaded spring pre-load
collars for quick ride height adjustments.
The unique Revo®-Spec suspension geometry multiplies the suspension travel to
lengths normally found on larger models. It provides true progressive rate
performance that's light over the small bumps and instantly tightens when
compressed to resist bottoming out over large jumps.
No need for a paint or sticker session; 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD 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 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD
Prographix bodies are available in the Traxxas red theme as well as three race
replica versions: Scott Douglas/Mike Oberg Edition (Amsoil®), Rick Huseman
Edition (Fabtech®) and Jerry Whelchel Edition (Chett Huffman Motorsports).
Precision rubber-sealed bearings offer the ultimate in low-friction performance
and maximum protection in dirty environments. They are used in all exposed
locations on the truck and are virtually maintenance free.
Pro-quality, high-grade, metric hex-drive hardware is used throughout for extra
strength, and easy maintenance and repair. The black-oxide rust-resistant finish
provides a high-tech look and feel.
The included TQ radio system includes a high-power transmitter with a specially
designed comfort grip, a precise high-torque steering servo, and a compact
receiver for up to a quarter-mile range. The perfectly balanced TQ transmitter
features servo reversing, a low battery indicator, electronic trim control, and
it is digitally proportional for precise steering and throttle control.
