70054-1 - Slash: 1/16 Scale 4WD Electric Short Course Racing Truck. Ready-To-Race® with TQ 2.4GHz radio system, Titan® 550 motor and XL-2.5 ESC. Includes: 6-Cell NiMH 1200mAh Traxxas® battery
XL-2.5 Waterproof Electronic Speed ControlDesigned and engineered by Traxxas, the XL-2.5 Electronic Speed Control is completely waterproof for all-weather RC driving fun. This high-performance ESC is packed with impressive specifications that are normally only found on more expensive high-end replacement units. The XL-2.5 features three throttle profiles, Thermal Shutdown Protection, 6-7 cell NiMH compatibility, and built-in BEC. High-frequency operation combined with ultra-low resistance make the XL-2.5 an efficient and ultra-smooth fully proportional speed control. The XL-2.5 is manufactured by Traxxas to ensure the highest level of quality and support.
Titan® 12-Turn 550 Modified Motor1/16 Slash 4X4 includes a powerful Titan 12T 550 modified motor with internal cooling fan - an industry first for this class of truck! The Titan's oversized armature (30% larger compared to 540-sized armatures) features 12 turns of pure copper wire for big torque and increased power-handling capabilities. The integrated cooling fan lowers running temperatures for more fun behind the wheel. The Titan 12T requires very little maintenance and provides consistent torque and high speeds run-after-run, without fading.
Revo-Spec SuspensionThe 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.
Oil-Filled GTR Shocks™1/16 Slash 4X4 '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.
All-Terrain Tires & WheelsEach corner of the 1/16 Slash 4X4 comes wrapped in all-terrain tires, pre-glued and mounted onto 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. 12 mm mounting hexes open the door to additional wheel and tire combos to tune traction for specific surfaces.
Race Replica Painted Bodies1/16 Slash 4X4 rolls out of the box ready for action with a factory-finished and mounted ProGraphix™ race replica body. Decals come pre-applied, so its Ready-to-Race® as soon as you are.
Precision 2.4GHz ControlSwitch on the power and drive! That's all there is to it with the TQ™ 2.4GHz radio system. There are no channels or frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. Race multiple vehicles side by side without interference. The TQ's advanced programming provides long-range control with smooth, glitch-free performance. The TQ's ergonomic design is comfortable for all day driving with an internal antenna that is impervious to damage.
3-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe SecurityThe TQ 2.4GHz micro receiver fits easily into almost any vehicle, and features dual channel-1 steering outputs. The integrated LINK button makes it fast and easy to bind the receiver, and the two-color LED indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and convenience. In the event of signal loss due to an accidental transmitter switch-off or depleted batteries, the receiver will automatically return the throttle to neutral and hold the last commanded steering position. The Fail Safe programming is conveniently built-in and does not need to be set or activated.
Ball-Bearing Transmission With Torque Control Slipper Clutch1/16 Slash 4X4's high-efficiency, heavy-duty transmission is built for brushless power when you're ready to Power Up. An adjustable slipper clutch lets you tailor power delivery to suit the terrain and your driving style, and turns every watt of Titan power into pure performance.
Full-Time 4WD With Sealed, Silicone-Filled DifferentialsSealed, silicone-filled differentials resist "unloading" for superior performance and authentic handling as you drift the 1/16 Slash 4X4 through corners with precision and control. The viscosity of the differential fluid has been carefully tuned for exciting on-road performance, and the shaft-driven 4WD system delivers instant acceleration with proven efficiency and durability.
Pivot Ball SuspensionThe 1/16 Slash's pivot-ball suspension provides smooth suspension articulation and easy adjustment. Rubber-sealed ball bearings ward off dirt and increase precision while reducing friction and maximizing durability. For extra security, the heavy-duty axle carriers capture the universal-joint axles' crosspins with inner bearings—another example of Traxxas' attention to every detail.
Universal-Joint Driveshafts1/16 Slash features 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.
Waterproof ElectronicsMud. Water. Snow. 1/16 Slash 4X4's waterproof electronics and fully sealed receiver box let you make tracks in conditions that leave other trucks parked at home. The antenna and servo wires route neatly through a special watertight seal. To protect the receiver from dust and water a custom shaped blue O-ring seals the receiver box.
Digital High-Torque Waterproof Steering ServoSmall but powerful, the 1/16 Slash 4X4'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 waterproof construction.
Power Cell Series 1 NiMH Battery Pack with iD®1/16 Slash 4X4 comes fully assembled and Ready-To-Race® with an included iD Power Cell NiMH battery and 2-amp peak detecting DC fast charger. This potent pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas' exclusive patented High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run. Everything you need to power-up is in the box. Accessory Traxxas iD chargers (sold separately) auto-detect Traxxas iD Power Cell batteries and automatically set and optimize charge settings for unmatched charging safety and simplicity.
Traxxas High-Current ConnectorsYour Traxxas RC vehicle and battery are equipped with the Traxxas iD High-Current Connector*. Designed to handle high-current applications and funnel maximum power to your vehicle’s electronics, the Traxxas iD High-Current Connector also enables the charger and battery to communicate. This means optimum charge settings specific to your battery for quicker, safer, more complete charging and extended battery life. Traxxas iD High-Current Connectors let you get the quickest, safest charge for your battery.
Traxxas 2-amp DC Peak Detecting Fast Charger!1/16 Slash 4X4 includes a 2-amp peak detecting charger for quick, convenient, hassle-free charging. The charger uses a 12-Volt DC power outlet for charging charging in the field. The brilliant LED provides charging status while the battery charges. The peak-detecting charger is optimized for charging Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery packs. Just plug the included Power Cell battery in for a perfect charge, run after run.
Dual Battery CompartmentsThe 1/16 Slash 4X4 unleashes its full speed potential with the included Power Cell battery pack, but for extended run time and more "punch," the chassis' dual battery compartments let you add a second NiMH battery pack and patented Traxxas parallel connector (both sold separately) to double the available battery capacity.
Quick-Release Battery DoorsTraxxas 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 racing.
Battery Cooling VentsArtfully 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."
Rubber-Sealed Ball BearingsPrecision rubber-sealed bearings offer the ultimate in low-friction performance and maximum protection in dirty environments. They are used in all exposed locations and are virtually maintenance free.
Progressive Rate TravelThe unique suspension geometry increases wheel travel to lengths normally found on larger models. Springs and shocks absorb small bumps with ease, but stiffen progressively to resist bottoming out over large jumps.
Hex HardwarePro-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.
