Traxxas Slayer Pro 4X4

Traxxas have updated their Slayer chassis with the release of the Pro 4×4 version. Based on the previous and very successful Slayer, this latest version features a new chassis and wishbones that give it a 30mm longer wheelbase and 26mm wider track than the original car. Now with a 10% larger footprint, this car’s new longer wheelbase chassis and wide track stance deliver enhanced stability in rough conditions and radically improved high speed cornering. Extreme TRX 3.3 power punches hard and revs fast to rip past the competition and the amazing Revo-Spec linkage-based suspension and hard-anodized GTR shocks deliver seemingly bottomless suspension travel that simulates the handling and jumping ability of full-size Pro 4X4 trucks. Slayer Pro 4X4’s new bodywork and officially licensed BF Goodrich or Kumho tires bring together scale looks and 50+mph performance for all-day fun, excitement, and competition.
