Traxxas Stability Management
Traxxas Stability Management makes it possible to experience all the extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered into Traxxas models by making them much easier to control on common slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow. Punch it off the line and TSM goes to work sensing the vehicle’s direction and making steering corrections to provide straight-ahead full-throttle acceleration without fishtailing, spinouts, or loss of control. TSM also works during cornering, first making intuitive corrections to maintain the vehicle’s line, then hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. Braking is dramatically improved as TSM works to keep the vehicle arrow straight until it comes to a complete stop. Traxxas TSM gives all the benefits of modern electronic stabilization without intruding on driving fun or introducing unwanted and a disconnected driving feel. Traxxas engineers developed superior tuning algorithms that run on high-speed, precision electronic components to create a system that works invisibly, in the background, without ever limiting throttle. TSM can be fine-tuned (or turned off) for different surfaces by simply adjusting the multi-function knob on the TQi transmitter, or by adjusting the slider in the Traxxas Link app. The result is driving faster, with more ease, and having more fun. You may not even realize how much it is helping until you try to drive without it.
The World’s Most Advanced Ready-To-Race® Radio System
Now Connects Wirelessly to the Traxxas Link App
The Traxxas TQi paired with the Traxxas Link App is the most advanced, Ready-to-Race® radio system available. Now, TQi connects wirelessly to the latest Traxxas Link App for the ultimate in ease-of-use and control. The TQi radio system is equipped with the Traxxas Link Wireless Module to unlock exciting features such as instant Bluetooth® connectivity; access to the full range of powerful TQi tuning and telemetry tools through an intuitive high-definition graphical interface; and the ability to have a friend remotely monitor real-time telemetry while you focus on mashing the throttle. Your co-driver can even make adjustments for you, remotely, while you drive. No other radio system can do that. Just like the speed and performance Traxxas engineers into the vehicles, the power and capability of TQi and Traxxas Link expands your fun into all-new territory.
Factory-Equipped Real-Time Telemetry
Slash 4X4 Ultimate includes factory-installed telemetry sensors enabling Traxxas Link to collect and record real-time telemetry data as you drive. The Traxxas Link dashboard comes to life showing you speed, battery voltage, RPM, and temperature. The application automatically detects and recognizes Traxxas Link sensors for easy set up and configuration. The dashboard is fully customizable with either dial or digital readout gauges. Up to nine gauges can be displayed at once. Set threshold warnings and log maximums, minimums, or averages. Use the recording function to document your dashboard view, with sound, so that you can keep your eyes on your driving and not miss a single apex. If you forget to record, simply touch Instant Replay anytime to capture the previous minute of fun and unexpected triumphs. The recordings can be named, saved, and shared with others. The powerful Traxxas Link App is available on Google Play and the App Store.
5-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security
The TQi 2.4GHz micro receiver uses an integrated LINK button for fast and easy binding to the receiver, and the two-color LED indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and convenience. Traxxas Link Model Memory allows the receiver to recognize up to thirty TQi 2.4GHz Traxxas Link enabled transmitters—just switch on and drive. In the event of signal loss due to an accidental switch-off or depleted batteries, the receiver will automatically return the throttle to neutral and hold the last commanded steering position. The Fail Safe programming is built-in and does not need to be set or activated. Three telemetry ports are incorporated in the 5-channel receiver to allow real-time data to be transmitted from your Traxxas model to the TQi transmitter.
High-Output Brushless Power
Slash 4X4 Ultimate’s Velineon Brushless Power system unleashes outrageous electric power without limitations or boundaries. Pour in the voltage and out comes the speed in tidal waves of force harnessed by precision throttle control. Sheer, brutal power combined with four-corner grip results in tire-melting acceleration and lightning fast speed. The Velineon 3s Brushless Power System’s components work together as an optimized package, from the patented Traxxas High-Current connector to the custom-wound motor. Engineered to perform, the Velineon system delivers the ultimate in efficiency, speed, and run-time with precision throttle response and refined control. It’s brushless performance the Traxxas way: wicked fast and easy to use. Just plug it in and it works, no special knowledge or programming skills required.

Old designs made servicing of 4-wheel drive vehicles cumbersome and time-consuming. Traxxas has a better way. The Slash 4X4 Ultimate’s modular design allows the entire front section to be removed with just five screws, and the rear assembly with just four screws. In less than a minute using a power screwdriver, you have full access for easy service and adjustment.
High-Speed Metal Gear Servo
The Slash 4X4 Ultimate needs a fast and powerful servo to match its lightning-quick reflexes. New to the Slash Ultimate is the fully waterproof #2075R digital metal gear servo. This servo combines commanding steering authority with the superior durability of all-metal gears for the ultimate driving experience.
Ultra-Efficient Shaft-Driven 4WD
The Slash 4X4 Ultimate uses just three gear meshes to drive all four wheels, eliminating the need for a multi-gear transmission. The highly efficient drivetrain spins effortlessly on rubber-sealed ball bearings, and is integrated seamlessly into the Slash 4X4 Ultimate’s unique low-CG chassis for optimum performance and easy maintenance. The center driveshaft is formed from extruded aluminum and extremely lightweight, contributing to the Slash 4X4 Ultimate’s right-now acceleration. There are no dogbones to wear, no drive cups to wobble and the shaft runs perfectly straight and true with superior rigidity and durability.
Slash 4X4 Ultimate’s performance refinements begin with a dark charcoal gray low-CG (low center of gravity) chassis. The battery and electronics are held 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 race course, 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.
High-Capacity GTR Shocks
Traxxas GTR shocks represent the peak of suspension technology. The blue PTFE-coated aluminum shock bodies have 13 mm bores to hold over 70% more oil than the standard Slash Ultra Shocks and their slick titanium-nitride coated shafts resist scuffing, increase durability, and eliminate “stiction.” The shocks are sealed by X-rings to keep oil in and dirt out for smooth, consistent damping, and plush suspension action, lap after lap. Between runs, spring preload and ride height changes are as simple as turning the threaded spring collars–no clips or spacers required.
Race Anywhere With Waterproof Electronics
Only Traxxas lets you experience brushless-powered 4WD short course excitement year-round, no matter what mother nature has to offer. Water, mud, and snow don’t slow down full-size full racers or the Traxxas Slash 4X4 Ultimate. Its VXL-3s speed control and high-torque digital steering servo are waterproof, and the 5-channel Traxxas Link receiver is housed in an O-ring sealed enclosure for no-worry fun in wet conditions that add excitement to short course racing in any scale. Drive the Slash 4X4 Ultimate where you want, when you want—the only limit is your imagination.
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.
Heavy-Duty Composite Arms
All-new heavy-duty suspension arms are stronger than ever before. Molded from a tough new composite material, the arms stand up to even the most punishing drivers and resist breakage for non-stop fun behind the wheel.
Extreme Heavy-Duty Driveshafts
Slash 4X4 Ultimate’s extreme heavy-duty driveshafts are beefed up in critical areas for even more outrageous power handling. The larger diameter half shafts offer the same articulation and suspension travel, but are rated for even more tire-shredding torque.
Authentic Short Course Style
Traxxas Slash sets the standard for short course RC style. Slash 4X4 Ultimate carries it to the next level with an even more aggressive and realistic stance. Sharper edges and bolder curves scream speed and reflect the horsepower that lurks beneath. Slash 4X4 Ultimate rides on soft-compound S1 rubber, giving it realistic performance and enhanced control.
