The Traxxas Slash VXL Short Course Truck is one of the best RC cars in the 2WD class. It is powered by a powerful 4-pole Velineon 550 3500 rpm AC motor. Water-resistant* electronics are a matter of course. The advantage is the presence of TSM stabilization. The Traxxas Slash RC car reaches speeds of up to 70 km/h! The Magnum 272R transmission is new.


The new chassis has a special design that enables lower storage of the drive battery and engine. The rigidity of the chassis is ensured by the proven spatial construction, which is light and strong at the same time. The chassis is made of high-quality nylon filled with carbon fibers. The tires are glued to the discs, the high-quality rubber compound of the tires ensures excellent grip on all surfaces. The GTR's oil-filled large volume aluminium/teflon shock absorbers have an exclusive X-ring to reduce friction with excellent resistance to oil leakage, the low center of gravity gives the car great handling.

Shock absorbers

Ultra Shocks oil shocks feature an exclusive X-Ring to reduce friction with excellent resistance to oil leakage. By filling the damper with silicone oil of a different viscosity, you can adjust the damping efficiency. Ground clearance is affected by spring preload.

Magnum 272R gearbox

The 2WD drive is realized through the new Magnum 272R gearbox modified for high performance. The transmission includes an aluminum bed with a tightly defined intermediate tooth, metal gears and a differential for distributing power to the rear wheels. All gearbox shafts are housed in quality encapsulated bearings. An integrated, adjustable friction clutch will allow minor slippage during acceleration, absorbing the initial shock of the engine and thereby protecting other components.

Servo steering

Digital Traxxas servo 2075 high-torque waterproof with DC motor and nylon gears has a torque of 9.0 and a speed of 0.17 s/60°@ 6.0 V. For water resistance*, the servo box and the output 1000 edges are fitted with seals. Two ball bearings provide very smooth operation.

Powerful AC motor

The Velineon 550 AC motor is precisely tuned for use in 1:10 RC cars. It provides car models with the perfect balance between performance and optimal efficiency. Another advantage is the long service life, which is determined only by ball bearings. The bearings can be purchased as part of the service kit under order number TRA3352R.

The motor is of the 550 series, has a 4-pole design, which provides up to twice the torque compared to the two-pole version. The rotor is dynamically balanced and wrapped with Kevlar fabric to increase strength.

Traxxas TQi RC kit with Bluetooth ready

Traxxas has prepared for you a completely new series of two-channel RC kits with Bluetooth connectivity. The Bluetooth module (sold separately) will allow you to connect the RC model with the clear graphic application Traxxas Link, which you can install on your smartphone for free.

The Traxxas Link app for Apple devices is available for free on the AppStore , the app for Google Android devices is free on GooglePlay .


The Traxxas Link App is a powerful application that gives you complete control over the operation and tuning of your Traxxas RC model with stunning visualization and absolute accuracy of settings. Traxxas Link can display telemetry data that the model provides in real time, such as speed, rpm, temperature, battery voltage and model roll. (Telemetry provided varies by specific model type). You can share settings of RC models, you can create any number of profiles for a specific track or users, e.g. children. All in the app with the brilliant graphics that come naturally from Traxxas.

Telemetry options vary by model. It may be necessary to install telemetry sensors to obtain telemetry data. Compatible telemetry parts with this model can be found in the "Accessories - Telemetry" section. More information on telemetry installation here.

Traxxas TQi receiver

RC receiver Traxxas TQi 5 channel. TSM with telemetry for Traxxas TQi transmitters. Simple operation, pairing with a button. LED status indication. 3-axis MEMS sensors are integrated in the receiver for learning the position of the receiver.

The 5-channel receiver is also equipped with two connectors for connecting telemetry sensors RPM (revolutions) and V/T (voltage / temperature).

Furthermore, a telemetry extension module can be connected to the 4-pin connector, into which you can connect up to 6 more sensors, including a very accurate GPS speed sensor.


Traxxas Stability Management

The Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) stability system allows you to experience not only power, speed, acceleration and cornering at extreme speed, but also guarantees much easier steering and control on slippery surfaces such as dust, smooth concrete or even ice and snow.

The receiver has a MEMS 3-axis gyro and an accelerometer, which evaluates the movement of the model on the order of 100 times per second and corrects the model's direction of travel by appropriate interventions in the steering of the front wheels. Traxxas TSM does not limit engine power - you have 100% control over engine power. Algorithms are tuned for each model separately. The level of assistance is set using the multi-function controller on the transmitter or possibly in the Traxxas Link application.

Wireless connection with the phone

By adding a Bluetooth module to the transmitter, you get the function of wireless connection of the RC model with the Traxxas Link application, which you can install on your phone for free. We recommend a phone holder for attaching the phone to the transmitter.

A clear graphic application enables simple model settings. The telemetry provided by the model can also be viewed in the application. Telemetry options for specific models are listed in our Traxxas RC Models Telemetry blog.

LED lighting

Equip the model with a complete set of LED lighting for a breathtaking ride day and night. Thanks to this lighting, your model will become a real gem. High-luminosity diodes are not only effective, but also provide a strong stream of light. At the same time, the lighting provides a better overview of the model's position.

Accessories for normal operation

For normal operation of the Traxxas RC car, you need bolt glue, good quality tire glue, silicone shock oil and a set of screwdrivers. We recommend an affordable set of tools for cars from our range.

The thread or head of the screw is dripped with screw glue, which fixes it and the vibrations caused by driving prevent the screw connection from loosening. The screw adhesive has a special composition that allows the screw connection to be easily loosened with an adequate torque without damaging the screw head. Never use ordinary instant glue, it might be impossible to loosen a screw stuck like this!

Tire glue is used to glue the tires to the disc rim. It is always necessary that the tire is firmly stuck to the wheel rim all the way around! If the tire is not glued all the way around, it may tear. Tire glue has a special composition that is able to glue materials such as rubber or nylon, and at the same time, after hardening, the glue is flexible. Never use ordinary instant glue - it is not flexible after hardening and cracks would gradually form in the tire around the rims!

Sometimes it is necessary to add silicone oil to the dampers of the model. During normal operation, there are only slight leaks of silicone oil on the piston rods of the shock absorber. In the event that the surface of the damper pistons or the condition of the seals is in poor condition, the oil leakage may be large. For these cases, so-called repair kits are supplied. In the range of tuning parts, piston rods with an extremely hard TiN (titanium nitride) coating are delivered to all shock absorbers. Piston rods with a TiN surface are easily recognized by their golden-green color.
