Ive had my slash for a couple months now and I have ppl ask me if its a 2 speed because it goes so fast. But I can't hear it shift…… So how do I find out????
If it's electric then nope because electric motor doesn't have gears in it, if nitro, then yes, it does.
The Slash just has a one speed. It's a simple and very tough transmission. You shouldn't have to many problems with it, maybe the occasional broken pin.
From Traxxas' Slash webpage:
