Traxxas Slash 4x4 Brushed

By: Tim Gluth

Four-wheeled power at a lower price.

Traxxas has added a new Slash model to their lineup that's aimed at providing fun and performance at a lower cost. The Slash 4x4 packs in everything you'd find in their 2WD version but adds the benefit of four-wheel drive.

Powered by a brushed Titan 12T, 550-size motor, and XL-5 ESC, the Slash 4x4 can put out steady, solid power and tackle a wide array of terrain types. From the backyard to the track, this new short course truck (SCT) offering would be an excellent option for those new to the hobby.

Waterproof electronics can be found throughout this model, meaning the fun doesn't need to stop when wet weather appears. Two body and wheel color combinations are available on this Slash model (orange/red/black and green/blue/black), each with eye-catching graphics.
