Sledge (#95096-4)
Built for 6s

Engineered for 6s Power

Sledge is the only truck in this class with a properly sized, 6s-capable driveline. Bigger gears. More steel. Basically bombproof. Sledge smashes the status quo to be the new standard for extreme 6s durability.

Engineered Tough

Superior Chassis Strength

Sledge is engineered to have the strongest chassis in the class. The triangulated chassis structure integrates a deep-formed aluminum plate with a multi-point composite truss system and the patent-pending full-length T-Bar. Built on a solid foundation, Sledge is strongest where it matters most.

Clipless Body

Clipless Body

Remove and replace the body in just seconds with exclusive patent-pending clipless body solutions engineered by Traxxas. Sledge’s clipless body goes on smoothly with a satisfying snap. The body is designed to come off when YOU release it.

Monster Servo

Monster Servo

Sledge is equipped with a high-performance metal gear servo that packs massive torque inside a heat dissipating aluminum center case. Powerful and reliable steering authority is assured with no upgrade required.

6s Power

VXL-6s Power System

The Velineon VXL-6s features new hardware and new tuning specifically for the 2000 kV motor. Together they deliver substantially more power under the curve for increased mid-range punch and hard-charging acceleration you can see and feel.

Belted Sledgehammer Tires

Belted Sledgehammer Tires

Sledge’s belted Sledgehammer® tires deliver game-changing stability and control whether you’re slinging mud or setting speed records. The wide, open-block tread design won’t clog up with dirt or debris and the lightweight belting maintains the tire’s shape for a larger contact patch, more grip, and responsive handling at any speed.
