Low-CG Chassis. High Volume Shocks. LiPo Power.
This is the Definition of Ultimate Performance
The next-generation Slash 4X4 Ultimate unleashes Ready-To-Race® performance at the highest level. LiPo power is standard equipment. The included 5000mAh Power Cell LiPo delivers high capacity, 40+mph speed, and fast charging to keep track time up and lap times down. The all-new Low-CG (center of gravity) chassis provides superior handling and maximum corner speed. Rough-track control is enhanced by new high-volume, hard-anodized GTR shocks with PTFE-coated bores that provide smooth suspension action and consistent damping, lap after lap. Slash 4X4 Ultimate’s low-CG design and state-of-the-art suspension combine to deliver lightning-fast steering, composed handling, and precision control that set the standard for short-course performance. The TQi 2.4GHz Radio System with Docking Base and Slash 4X4 Ultimate’s factory installed telemetry sensors enable real-time data capture and set the standard for tuning ease and versatility. To truly make this the Ultimate Slash 4X4, the specs are completed with nearly every factory option available, from aluminum suspension components to a sealed, silicone-filled differential. Simply put, it’s the best of the best.
NEW High-Capacity GTR Shocks
Performance-proven in extreme terrain by the Revo and Summit models, Traxxas GTR shocks represent the peak of suspension technology and now set the standard for short-course damping and control. Shock length has been customized for Slash 4X4 Ultimate to deliver track-ready suspension travel, and the hard-anodized shock bodies have 13mm bores to hold 76% more oil than the standard Slash 4X4's Ultra Shocks. The GTR shocks feature PTFE-coated bores for nearly frictionless piston travel, and their slick titanium-nitride coated shafts resist scuffing, increase durability, and eliminate "stiction." The shocks are sealed by unique X-rings to keep oil in and dirt out for smooth, consistent damping and plush suspension action, lap after lap. Between runs, spring reload and ride height changes are as simple as turning the threaded spring collars--no clips or spacers required.
All New Low-CG Chassis
Slash 4X4 Ultimate's performance refinements begin with an all-new Low-CG (low center of gravity) chassis that's unlike anything you've seen before. The battery and electronics are held as deep in the chassis as possible to position weight low in the chassis. Arrow-straight, hard-charging acceleration with Extreme Brushless Power and 4WD requires a chassis that won't flex under load. To offer the necessary rigidity, the chassis is reinforced by integrated ribs that form a triangulated structure optimized for the loads imparted by the suspension and powertrain. Underneath, the chassis is ultra-smooth to reduce drag and prevent snags whether you're blasting through whoops on the track or blazing trails in your backyard. The low-CG design dramatically increases corner speed and stability no matter where you drive. On the racecourse, Slash 4X4 Ultimate's low center of gravity allows high-output Velineon brushless power to be channeled into the track with superior traction, resulting in harder launches and faster lap times.
Power Cell LiPo and Charger Included
The ultimate Slash 4X4 deserves the ultimate battery, and Traxxas delivers with a competition-grade 2-cell, 5000mAh Power Cell LiPo battery. The 5000mAh capacity extends run time for more laps and more fun from every charge, while the exclusive High Current Connector and Maxx Cable wire make certain every watt flows to the Velineon VXL-3s speed control with the lowest possible electrical resistance. Within the Power Cell LiPo's semi-rigid case, extra-large solder tabs increase durability and further reduce electrical resistance. And since charging care is critical to LiPo life and performance, Slash 4X4 Ultimate includes 2-Cell / 3-Cell LiPo Balance charger. Just plug the battery’s balance connector into the charger, and you’re on the way to another run—no programming or setting required.
Factory Installed Telemetry Sensors
Slash 4X4 Ultimate is fully equipped with telemetry sensors that allow the exclusive Traxxas Link application to record real-time telemetry data as you drive. The Traxxas Link dashboard comes to life showing you speed, battery voltage, RPM, and temperature. The application automatically detects and recognizes Traxxas Link sensors for easy set up and configuration. The dashboard is fully customizable with either dial or digital readout gauges. Up to nine gauges can be displayed at once. Set threshold warnings and log maximums, minimums, or averages. Use the recording function to document your dashboard view, with sound, so that you can keep your eyes on your driving and not miss a single apex. If you forget to record, simply touch Instant Replay anytime to capture the previous minute of fun and unexpected triumphs. The recordings can be named, saved, and shared with others.
TQi: The Next Generation of Traxxas 2.4GHz Control
Slash 4X4 Ultimate is equipped with the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race® radio system.

When it's time to go all-out for speed, the Velineon power system is ready to send high-output 3-cell LiPo power to all four tires and blast the Slash 4X4 Ultimate past 60mph.
Velineon 3500 Brushless Motor
Extreme performance is standard equipment with the sensorless Velineon motor. Ultra high-temperature Neodymium magnets, high-speed ball bearings, and a precision-balanced rotor deliver power and long life with near zero maintenance. Just drive--since there are no brushes or commutator to wear out, you always get the same blistering acceleration and ballistic top speed every time you hit the track.
Larger pinion gear/smaller spur gear combinations are for high-speed running on hard, smooth surfaces only.
Ultra Efficient Shaft-Driven 4WD
The Slash 4X4 Ultimate uses just three gear meshes to drive all four wheels, eliminating the need for a multi-gear transmission. The highly efficient drivetrain spins effortlessly on rubber-sealed ball bearings, and is integrated seamlessly into the Slash 4X4 Ultimate's unique Low-CG chassis for optimum performance and easy maintenance. The center driveshaft is formed from extruded aluminum and extremely lightweight, contributing to the Slash 4X4 Ultimate's right-now acceleration. There are no dogbones to wear, no drive cups to wobble. The extrusion process creates internal splines that fit directly and securely onto the input shafts of the front and rear drive assemblies. The shaft runs perfectly straight and true and superior rigidity and durability. Traxxas engineers highlighted this important innovation with vivid blue anodizing and a laser-etched Traxxas logo.
Old designs made servicing of 4-wheel drive vehicles cumbersome and time-consuming. Traxxas has a better way. The Slash 4X4 Ultimate's modular design allows the entire front section to be removed with just five screws, and the rear assembly with just four screws. In less than a minute using a power screwdriver, you have full access for easy service and adjustment.
