Traxxas Slash 4×4 LCG Platinum and Ultimate

Traxxas Slash 4x4 Platinum and Ultimate EditionsMeet the next generation Traxxas Slash 4×4 Platinum and Ultimate Edition RC short course trucks! Both feature an all new LCG (Low Center of Gravity) chassis and hard anodized, high volume GTR aluminum shocks. The result is what Traxxas calls the ultimate in short course racing performance. The Platinum Edition arrives fully assembled and ready to complete with your choice of radio, receiver and battery. In place of the radio system, the Platinum Edition is loaded with Traxxas‘ premium option parts and accessories. Standard equipment includes machined aluminum suspension components, front and rear swaybars, and a clear body ready for your own signature paint style. The Slash 4×4 Ultimate Edition features all of the performance parts of the Platinum with the addition of a Traxxas TQi radio system, 5000mah LiPo battery pack, 2-3 cell battery charger and factory installed telemetry sensors for use with the Traxxas Link iPhone app and docking station.

New Performance-Optimized Low-CG Chassis
Slash 4X4 Platinum’s performance refinements begin with an all-new low center of gravity (CG) chassis that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before. The battery (not included) and electronics are held as low as possible to position weight low in the chassis. Extreme Brushless Power and 4WD require a chassis that won’t flex under load for arrow-straight, hard-charging acceleration. To offer the required rigidity, smoothly integrated ribs form a triangulated structure that’s 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 the 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 track, the low center of gravity allows the Slash 4X4 Ultimate to put Velineon power down with superior traction, resulting in harder launches and faster lap times.

High-Volume GTR Shocks
Traxxas GTR shocks represent the peak of suspension technology and now set the standard for short-course damping and control. Shock length has been customized for Slash 4X4 Platinum to deliver track-ready suspension travel, and the hard-anodized shock bodies have 13mm bores to hold over 70% more oil than the standard Slash 4X4’s Ultra Shocks. The GTR shocks feature PTFE-coated bores for nearly frictionless piston travel, and their slick titanium-nitride coated shafts resist scuffing, increase durability, and eliminate “stiction.” The shocks are sealed by unique X-rings to keep oil in and dirt out for smooth, consistent damping and plush suspension action, lap after lap.

High-Strength, High-Precision Aluminum Components
Traxxas’ premium-quality aluminum components add strength and beauty to the Platinum Edition without compromising the track-bred suspension geometry built into Slash 4X4. The Platinum Edition’s steering blocks, C-hubs, and rear hub carriers are all contructed of lightweight, high-strength aluminum for superior durability and rigidity. Computer-controlled machining gives these parts incredible precision, while and a brilliant-blue anodized finish adds high-tech style. Laser-etched logos on the C-hubs show your truck is equipped with genuine Traxxas performance parts.

Velineon Brushless Horsepower
The Traxxas Velineon power system gives the Platinum Edition competition-ready power to match its track-bred handling. The Velineon system is optimized for smooth, high-speed performance and refined control to help you hug the fast line and precisely meter out power at the edge of traction. Low Voltage Detection (LVD) is built in and activated right out of the box, making the Platinum Edition ready for high-output LiPo batteries (there’s no better choice than genuine Traxxas Power Cell LiPos–click here to see the options). If you’re putting in laps with NiMH packs, LVD can be turned off. On practice days, reverse control lets you back away from the pipes; on race day, lock out reverse to follow the rules while everyone else follows you. The VXL-3s speed control makes setting the throttle mode as easy as pressing the EZ-Set button.
