Slash 4x4 Ultimate Brushless - 2.4GHz TQi Premium
Top offering in the Slash 4X4 line-up and adapted from the multi award-winning Slash 4X4 short-course race truck, Slash 4X4 Ultimate has been optimised to give an out of the box, competition-ready package that’s hard to beat!
Still featuring all that makes the Slash 4X4 such an unprecedented race truck, Ultimate heaps the icing on the cake with a package of key upgrades fitted as standard to give you a machine that’s at the pinnacle of race-truck performance. Already tough fibre-composite front and rear hubs are replaced by blue anodised T6 aluminium upgrades, as are the wheel nuts, Big Bore aluminium bodied shocks with titanium-nitride (TiN) shafts are fitted for even smoother damping, front and rear sway bars for increased stability, softer S1 compound race-replica tyres for enhanced grip, Series 4 Ni-MH race pack and there’s even an optional centre diff that can be fitted in place of the standard Torque-control slipper-clutch when required!
In addition to the new, Slash 4X4 Ultimate continues to sport all the key ingredients that have made it so popular; waterproofed electronics, the optimised Velineon brushless power system that helps push this machine to speeds in excess of 60mph, an efficient all-shaft driven system with heavy-duty telescoping drive shafts for efficient power transfer, Revo-spec differentials and the already mentioned Torque-control slipper-clutch, metric hex hardware throughout, etc., and all controlled by the Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz multi-function radio system with 2075 digital high speed/high torque ballraced steering servo for unrivalled precision and control.
Slash 4X4 Ultimate is as much about appearance as it is performance and you have five fully licensed race-replica body shells to choose from, supplied pre-painted and decorated from the factory. Even the tyres are scale and feature fully licensed versions of the BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A and Kumho Road Venture MT pattern rubber as applicable for the ultimate in scale looks!
Like all Traxxas vehicles, Slash 4X4 Ultimate is backed up with spares support that is second to none and this includes many option parts to further race-tune and enhance the performance and looks of your ride!
Slash 4X4 Ultimate is supplied fully assembled and ready-to-race with included Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz 2-channel radio system, Traxxas Series 4 Power Cell 8.4V NiMH battery pack (with high-current connector) and AC charger, plus a stunning fully licensed, *pre-painted body with factory-applied decals and optional 18T pinion gear.
*Body supplied in one of 5 fully licensed options; Mark Jenkins Edition, Scott Douglas/Mike Oberg Edition, Greg Adler Edition, Mike Jenkins Edition & Jerry Whelchel Edition.
