Titan® 12-Turn 550 Modified Motor
1/16 Slash 4X4 includes a powerful Titan 12T 550 modified motor with internal cooling fan. The Titan's over-sized armature (30% larger compared to 540-sized armatures) is equipped with 12-turns of pure copper wire for big torque and increased power-handling capabilities. Lower running temperatures are achieved with the integrated cooling fan. The Titan 12T requires very little maintenance and is designed for consistent torque and high speeds from run to run, without fading.
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.
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 & Wheels
Designed for all-terrain action, each corner of the 1/16 Slash 4X4 is equipped with pre-glued all-terrain tires 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.
Race Replica Painted Bodies
No need for a paint or sticker session; 1/16 Slash 4X4 rolls out of the box ready for action with a factory-finished and mounted Race Replica body and decals already applied for you, so its Ready-to-Race®. Traxxas 1/16 Slash 4X4 is available in four Rrace Replica versions: Mike Jenkins (Traxxas #47), Mark Jenkins (Traxxas #25), Scott Douglas Edition (Amsoil®), and Greg Adler (4 Wheel Parts).
Precision 2.4GHz Control
Switch 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.
The 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 Clutch
1/16 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 precision ball-bearings make certain every ounce of Titan torque is transferred to the wheels.
Full-Time 4WD With Sealed, Silicone-Filled Differentials
Sealed, 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 Suspension
The 1/16 Slash 4X4 features 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.
High-performance on-road driving requires smooth, efficient power delivery as the car drifts through turns and powers from challenge to challenge with sustained steering input. Chattering dogbones won't cut it! Traxxas steps up with fully equipped 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.
