New Slash 4x4 Ultimate Features
High-Volume, Hard-Anodized 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.
Performance-Optimized Low-CG Chassis
Slash 4X4 Ultimate's all-new Low-CG (low center of gravity) chassis holds the battery and electronics 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.
Lower CG, Higher Speeds, Lower Lap times
Slash 4X4 Ultimate's low center of gravity chassis is designed for the ultimate handling experience. The race-tuned ride height paired and high-performance GTR shocks deliver enhanced steering response and greater cornering speed for lower lap times. Slash 4X4 Ultimate feels planted and secure at speed as it delivers the authentic handling and realism that makes short-course racing such incredible fun. Off the track, Slash 4X4 Ultimate's full-time 4WD and rough-terrain capability allow you to tackle big obstacles and challenging conditions. No other short-course truck offer such versatility.
Perfect Weight Bias
Each of the Slash 4X4 Ultimate's components have been carefully positioned for a low center of gravity, optimal weight distribution, and efficient space utilization. The bulk of the mass is distributed down the centerline of the chassis and below the driveshaft for stable, high-speed cornering.
Integrated Personal Transponder Mount
A built-in transponder mount is expected on a truck with the track cred of the Slash 4X4 Ultimate. Bosses integrated into the chassis make it easy to mount the transponder with two screws, no tape required. And of course, the transponer mounts up front, so it gets to the finish line faster!
Old designs made servicing of 4-wheel drive vehicles cumbersome and time-consuming. Traxxas has a better way. Modular design allows the entire front section to be removed with just 5-screws, and the rear assembly with just 4-screws. In less than a minute using a power screwdriver you have full access for easy service and adjustment. Click the video tab (above left) to learn more about this feature!
Versatile Battery Compartment
The Slash 4X4 Ultimate adapts to multiple battery configurations to accept today's technology and tomorrow's innovations. 6 or 7-cell NiMH battery packs and a variety of LiPo battery configurations can be installed easly.

Included Performance Accessories
Included Silicone-Filled Center Differential
Slash 4X4 Ultimate rolls out of the box with a Revo-spec slipper clutch, and also includes a fully-assembled, sealed and silicone-filled Center Differential that can be used in place of the slipper clutch for enhanced track handling with smooth power delivery and maximum corner speed. Diff action can be adjusted by using different fluid viscosities for specific driving conditions. Slash 4X4's modular design allows you to install the diff in just minutes.
High Strength Machined Aluminum C-Hubs
Slash 4X4's unique C-Hub design is already Traxxas Tough; this artfully machined aluminum version is stronger still, and preserves the carefully engineered steering and suspension geometry for track-ready performance. The brilliant-blue anodized finish adds high-tech style, and the laser-etched logos show your truck is equipped with genuine Traxxas performance parts.
Aluminum Steering Blocks
Precision-machined for total steering accuracy and bulletproof strength, Traxxas Aluminum Steering Blocks further refine Slash 4X4 Ultimate's razor-sharp handling. Solid 6061 aluminum construction guarantees race-ready strength and stiffness.
Machined Aluminum Rear Hub Carriers
Traxxas aluminum stub axle carriers add both strength and beauty to the Ultimate without compromising the track-bred suspension geometry built into Slash 4X4.
Front and Rear Sway Bars
Sway bars reduce chassis roll and increase corner speed on high-traction surfaces—perfect for hard-packed tracks and pavement running. Slash 4X4 Ultimate features installed silver sway bars, and a stiffer set of black 'bars for extra-high-grip surfaces. The bar thicknesses are precisely tuned, and are easily adjusted for maximum cornering performance.
Officially Licensed S1 Compound
Slash 4X4's officially licensed BFGoodrich rubber returns for the Ultimate, molded in the latest S1 racing compound for even greater grip. Track-proven with the National Championship-winning Response Pro tires for Revo, the soft S1 compound is engineered for competition and gives Slash 4X4 Ultimate extra grip in all conditions.
