Pro 2WD Short Course Performance!
Nitro Slash Award-Winning TRX 3.3 Power!
Proven Slash performance. Legendary TRX 3.3 Power! As only Traxxas can, heavyweight horsepower is combined with a lightweight 2WD chassis to deliver astounding performance and over-the-top fun. The award-winning TRX 3.3 engine gives the Nitro Slash tire-melting thrust that is far more than any driver needs–and exactly what every driver wants. It takes Traxxas-Tough durability and a stout drivetrain to handle the TRX 3.3’s outrageous output. Nitro Slash delivers with proven components that have made the Slash the standard for durability, and fun. The extra large capacity of the 150cc fuel tank keeps the action running longer between fill ups and the exclusive EZ-Start electric starting system makes starting as easy as pressing a button.

The TRX 3.3 Racing Engine features a precision composite slide carburetor, PowerTune™ cooling head, dyno-proven IPS crankshaft, multi-port rear exhaust, and the starting convenience of the exclusive Traxxas EZ-Start® system. It’s competition-proven power with convenience and reliability for all-day driving fun. The TRX 3.3 engine is an investment in performance for years to come, fully protected by the exclusive Traxxas Lifetime Engine Replacement Plan.
Accelerate Faster/Corner Faster/Brake Harder/Stay in Control
Traxxas Stability Management TSM® allows you to experience all the extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered into your Nitro Slash making it 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, and loss of control. TSM also works during cornering, first making intuitive corrections to maintain your line, and then allowing you to hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. Braking is dramatically improved as TSM works to keep you arrow straight until you come to a complete stop.
The World’s Most Advanced Ready-To-Race® Radio System
Nitro Slash is equipped with the world’s most advanced Ready-To-Race® radio system. The all-new Traxxas® TQi™ arrives with a full complement of tuning features and offers the unbeatable convenience of “no channels, no crystals” 2.4GHz technology—but that’s just the beginning. Automatic model recognition instantly recalls your settings for up to 30 Traxxas Link-enabled models. Just switch on and drive, no naming or “model memory” settings required. Power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! The new TQi 2.4GHz transmitter is fully adjustable: steering and throttle end points can be set precisely, and the Multi-Function knob can be programmed to control Steering Sensitivity (Expo), Throttle Sensitivity (Expo), Steering Percentage (Dual Rate), Braking Percentage (Dual Rate), or Throttle Trim. TQi’s ergonomic case design provides all-day driving comfort, and the unique internal antenna contributes to its sleek, modern look.
Traxxas Link Wireless Module Compatible
The TQi’s most important new feature may already be in your pocket. The TQi can be equipped with an Traxxas Link Wireless Module (#6511, sold separately) that turns your Android, iPad® iPhone® or iPod touch® (sold separately) into a powerful tuning tool for your Traxxas model. The full-color display combines with the free Traxxas Link™ App to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that unlocks the mysteries of optimizing your radio system for ultimate vehicle control. Traxxas Link also opens the door to telemetry capability when you add optional sensors to your model. The Traxxas Link Application is available on Google Play and the App Store.
Built Traxxas Tough™
Nitro Slash is not only built to perform with its adjustable slipper clutch, disc brake, and race-inspired suspension geometry, it’s also built Traxxas Tough™ for all-day driving fun. Nitro Slash’s robust design keeps annoying breakage to a minimum so that the action can keep going on and on. The rugged 6061-T6 aluminum chassis forms a rock-solid backbone that also draws heat away from the engine. Full rubber-sealed ball bearings provide the ultimate protection and low maintenance for nitro environments. The Magnum 281™ transmission uses a steel-composite planetary gear differential with built-to-last hardened steel gears. The gear diff requires no time-consuming adjustment and is virtually maintenance free. The oil-filled Ultra Shocks™ use exclusive X-ring seal technology for reduced friction and superior leak resistance. Traxxas engineers are dedicated to keeping you on the throttle, not on the workbench.
