Traxxas’ award-winning Slash 2WD short course truck is also available as an unassembled kit, allowing to enjoy building one yourself. The kit targets entry-level as well as experienced modellers that want to build the truck from the ground up with all the required parts and electronics included in the box. However the battery and charger are sold separately. Owners get the convenience of a TQ 2.4GHz radio system, a powerful Titan brushed electric motor, and a waterproof XL-5 electronic speed control. All the parts are organised neatly in labelled bags with a fully illustrated colour manual to make building rewarding and fun. The Slash assembly kit is perfect for drivers of almost any age or skill level and the kit’s clear body comes pre-cut and ready to paint. Along with the standard decals and window masking, the kit includes special custom masking to make your wildest custom designs a reality. All you need is some polycarbonate paint to complete the truck. Other features include the Magnum 272 transmission that rocks all metal gears riding on ultra-smooth sealed ball bearings. This tough and efficient design transfers power from the motor to the wheels through durable telescoping U-joint driveshafts for maximum articulation. The kit is rounded out by satin-finish 5-spoke wheels with pre-glued BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A tyres. The tyres deliver the perfect balance of forward traction and side bite on asphalt, dirt, and any other surface thrown at them.
