We Scaled Down Everything...Except the Power!
Brushless Performance, 4WD Traction
and Slash Styling—Now in 1/16th Scale!
A New Category Of Off-Road Excitement
Traxxas Slash set the standard short-course power, performance and versatility. Now you can experience the fun of wheel-to-wheel Slash racing 1/16 scale—with Velineon brushless power and 4WD! At 14 inches long, the new 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD is about half the size of the 1/10-scale Slash. But don't call it a "mini"—this is a whole new category of R/C performance and fun that no mere mini-model can match. Short-course styling that captures the attitude of the full-size Traxxas TORC-series racer is just the beginning. Beneath the factory-finished polycarbonate shell, you'll find the winning suspension technology of the seven-time National Champion Traxxas Revo®, screaming Velineon® brushless-motor power, and the convention-busting innovation of the E-Revo.
Proven Traxxas Innovation
No detail was overlooked in our mission to bring all the capability, durability, and excitement of Traxxas' award-winning models to 1/16 scale for fast, affordable R/C fun. The Slash VXL 4WD is built on the race-winning, track-proven innovation of the Revo and E-Revo models. The standard-bearer of design excellence, the Revo's F1-inspired, rocker-actuated suspension has been expertly adapted to 1/16 scale with all its functionality and performance intact, right down to the oil-filled, threaded-body GTR shocks. This superior technology provides capability, performance, and tuning functions at the absolute pinnacle of truck design. The suspension and electronics are fully integrated into the semi-monocoque chassis design that stunned the world when it debuted with the E-Revo. Intricately molded as a single piece, the chassis balances strength and weight, function and aesthetics, convenience and performance to far surpass the standards of the "mini" category. In 1/16 scale, it is an even more impressive achievement of packaging and performance optimization that could only come from Traxxas, The Fastest Name In Radio Control®.
Some mini-models are "fast for a mini." That's not good enough for Traxxas. The 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD is just plain fast. At 30+mph with the included 6-cell NiMH battery, Slash VXL is nearly twice as fast as most mini models, and faster than most electric RTR trucks of any scale. Install a second 6-cell battery to unleash the Velineon Brushless Power System's full fury, and Slash VXL jumps to over 50mph—all with proven-safe NiMH packs. No other RTR truck, regardless of scale, makes it so easy and affordable to experience this level of high speed and wheelie-popping power.
Velineon Brushless Power
All-new and built specifically for Traxxas 1/16 scale models, the VXL-3m speed control and Velineon® 380 motor represent the latest in brushless technology. Fully LiPo compatible with low-voltage detection for 2S and 3S packs and rated for 6-12 NiMH cells, this potent, powerful combo gives 1/16 E-Revo VXL and 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD precise throttle control and blistering top speed. Patent-pending Training Mode™ lets new drivers hone their skills at 50% throttle. When drivers' ed is through, full power and 50+mph is unleashed with a touch of the EZ-Set® button. Big speed requires big horsepower, so E-Revo VXL and Slash 4WD VXL carry the largest motor in the "mini" category. The Velineon 380 is built to the same no-compromise specs as the Velineon 3500 found in Traxxas' 70+mph 1/10 scale VXL models. High-speed ball bearings. Sintered rotor. Neodymium magnets. Gold plated 3.5mm connectors. It all adds up to 50,000 rpm of pure power and track-searing speed!
Waterproof Electronics For No-Limits R/C Excitement
Now a hallmark of Traxxas vehicles, Slash VXL 4WD is the latest model to be equipped with fully waterproof electronics to keep the fun rolling in water, mud and snow while lesser cars stay on the bench. The patent-pending sealed receiver box houses Traxxas' newest 4-channel micro receiver and can accept aftermarket receivers as well, without compromising the 1/16 VXL models' waterproof properties. The new VXL-3m electronic speed control and high-torque, digital micro servo are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom go places other cars wouldn't dare to venture.
The 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD is fully assembled with TQ radio system, Velineon brushless power system, painted and decaled body, pre-glued tires, and detailed instructions. A Traxxas Power Cell NiMH battery and charger is also included, making the Slash VXL truly Ready-To-Race®. Designed specifically for the high-power needs of the Velineon brushless system, the potent Power Cell pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas' exclusive High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run. Traxxas backs the Slash VXL 4WD and all of our products with top-notch support that is second to none. A staff of skilled representatives is on-hand to answer your questions via phone, website, or e-mail. Unmatched parts support allows the Slash to be serviced with parts and support from thousands of hobby dealers worldwide.

All the precision and performance of the 1/16 Slash VXL 4WD (#7005), now with Titan® 380 brushed-motor power! All the features of the 1/16 VXL Slash are built into the brushed version, including waterproof electronics, full ball bearings, brushless-ready transmission, oil-filled shocks—the works. The only difference is the power system, which features the new Titan 380 motor and XL-2.5 Electronic Speed Control.
