Some of you may recall the photos leaked by the folks over at Speed Energy Drinks back in August of what looked to be a new Traxxas Slash body. Well Traxxas is proud to make it official, meet the Traxxas Slash Robby Gordon Edition! Robby Gordon is well known for versatile driving skills that have earned him success in everything from NASCAR to short-course off-road racing. Robby got his start as a desert racer in 1986, and he remains a force in this unique brand of high-speed, high-endurance competition. Unmistakable in his tough black and vivid orange race trucks, Robby is a fan favorite and a top contender when the green flag drops on the famous Dakar Rally. And now you can drive Robby’s ride yourself with the Traxxas Robby Gordon Edition Dakar Slash!
The award-winning Traxxas Slash RC short course truck puts you in the driver’s seat for intense, high-flying off-road action. Robby’s full-size Dakar truck embodies the spirit of Traxxas RC with its 6.0 liter LS2 V8 racing engine, sand-shredding horsepower, 20-inch suspension travel, and desert-conquering durability. The Dakar Slash brings all the action home so you can experience high-speed head-to-head competition no matter where the terrain takes you–even water, mud, and snow thanks to Traxxas’ exclusive waterproof electronics!
