The Slash VXL combines extreme brushless horsepower with the proven fun and durability that have made Slash the number-1 selling short course truck. Hardcore acceleration completely blows everything else away. Out of the box, Velineon is optimized to deliver the tire-melting horsepower, benchmark speed and precision throttle response you expect from brushless. Other upgrades in new dual bellcrank steering with integrated servo saver. Originally developed for Slash 4X4, the Slash VXL’s steering bellcranks feature optimized geometry and a cam-type servo-saver to protect the servo’s gears from crash damage without compromising steering precision. Also updated are the driveshafts, the Slash VXL stepping up with new, extra-strong telescoping universal-joint driveshafts. In combination with Slash’s Brushless Ready steel-gear transmission, the result is a Traxxas-Tough driveline that makes certain every watt of Velineon power is transformed into rocket-like thrust.
