Telluride: A great town in the Rocky Mountains that symbolizes rugged adventure, extreme terrain, and outdoor fun. The Traxxas Telluride 4X4 captures that spirit in a new off-road adventure RC vehicle that is engineered to go to places in the farthest reaches of your imagination. Pack it in your RV, load it in your Jeep, take it on the trails. 4-wheel drive traction, specially tuned differentials, and long-arm suspension give it sure-footed rock crawling prowess. Off the rocks, the XL-5 ESC and Titan 550 motor dish out high-speed driving excitement. It’s all waterproof, so the fun keeps going through water crossings, mud, and even new mountain snow. The Traxxas Telluride 4X4 is fully assembled, painted, and ready to run with included 7-cell 8.4V NiMH battery pack and charger.
Chassis Optimized for Versatility and Fun
The Traxxas Telluride 4X4 is built on the proven performance of the advanced shaft-driven 4WD system and innovative modular design of the award-winning Slash 4X4. The chassis fully integrates the electronics and battery compartment for an efficient and compact layout, and maintains the high center ground clearance that gives the Telluride 4X4 its high-riding look. The extra clearance drastically increases the off-road versatility allowing you to tackle extreme terrain and bigger obstacles.
Ultra Efficient Shaft-Driven 4WD
The Traxxas Telluride 4X4 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 unique chassis for optimum performance and easy maintenance. There are no dogbones to wear, no drive cups to wobble. A single center driveshaft connects the front and rear drive assemblies for maximum power transfer. The shaft runs perfectly straight and true and offers superior durability. A clear cover shows off the center driveshaft while keeping dirt and debris away from the shaft.
Old designs made servicing of 4-wheel drive vehicles cumbersome and time-consuming. Traxxas has a better way. 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.
Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz Radio
The Traxxas Telluride 4X4 is equipped with the new TQ 2.4GHz radio system. The TQ’s modern design features an internal antenna for a sleek look, and an ergonomic grip for all-day driving comfort. 2.4GHz technology means there’s no need to worry about frequency conflicts, no matter how many other drivers you’re racing with. Just switch on and drive — the TQ automatically locates and locks onto an open frequency.
Sealed Electronics Extend Your Driving Fun
Only Traxxas lets you experience 4WD excitement year-round, no matter what Mother Nature has to offer. Water, mud, and snow don’t slow down the Telluride 4X4; its electronic speed control, receiver box, and high-torque digital steering servo are all waterproof for worry-free fun in wet conditions that send other trucks back to the workbench. Drive the Telluride 4X4 where you want, when you want—the only limit is your imagination. To harness the torque of the Titan 12-turn motor, Traxxas bolted in the high-performance, waterproof XL-5 electronic speed control. With ultra-smooth, high-frequency operation and high-power handing capability, the XL-5 delivers trail-climbing torque. EZ-Set one-button setup makes it easy to adjust or change profiles. Traxxas’ exclusive Training Mode profile cuts total power output in half and leaves the brakes at full strength. It’s the first controller of its kind that has a 50% power profile. Training Mode is designed for young or first time drivers that want to learn the ropes before unleashing the full power of the mighty Titan 12T motor.

Performance tuned foam inserts help keep the truck firmly planted through the most extreme power-sliding turns and on the most demanding off-road terrain.
Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks
High-speed off-road action requires rugged, responsive shocks that can take abuse. Traxxas Ultra Shocks are proven tough as stock equipment for Traxxas Maxx trucks. The high-volume body yields large oil capacity, and a silicone bladder separates oil from air within the shock for consistent damping action, even during all-day off-road sessions. Dual X-ring seals give super-smooth performance without weeping or leaking, and Ultra Shocks are fully tunable with a wide range of oils, springs, and pistons.
Powder Coated White Springs
The springs feature an optimized spring rate for responsive handling and the long-lasting white powder coated finish sets the Telluride 4X4 apart from the pack.

Telluride 4X4’s telescoping, universal-joint driveshafts may look familiar but they have evolved for increased strength and articulation. Traxxas U-joint driveshafts allow for maximum suspension movement resulting in longer travel and tighter turning. Extra material and design tweaks greatly increase torque handling.
The Traxxas Telluride 4X4 has huge amounts of seemingly bottomless, ultra-plush suspension travel for suspension action that swallows up jumps and delivers incredible rough-trail control. The fully-optimized front axle carrier is a result of computer modeling that allowed engineers to design for maximum articulation without binding or interference. Tight steering response is always there, even at the extreme ranges of the suspension travel. Double-shear tie rods and camber links simply can’t pop off, so you always stay in control. Robust construction wards off crash damage, and oversized 10x15mm inboard bearings and 5x11mm outboard bearings are incredibly durable and smooth.
No part of the Telluride 4X4 was overlooked in the quest for durability, precision, and performance. The dual-bellcrank design pivots smoothly in the harshest conditions, and an integrated cam-type servo saver protects the servo gears from crash impacts without sacrificing steering precision.
High-Stall Gear Clutch
Another Traxxas exclusive, Telluride 4X4’s high-stall clutch is designed to protect the driveline in high RPM situations. When jumping off a rock pile or launching off a jump, the high-stall clutch absorbs the initial shock to keep the gears safe and the fun going.
Fiber Composite Arms
Solid, durable camber links take the guess work out of set-up and are captured to keep you on the trail even when the going gets rough. Captured rod ends provide unmatched durability and they simply won’t pop off.
The Telluride 4X4’s fully trimmed and painted ProGraphix body is available in red, blue, green, and orange. Decals are also applied to save you time and get you driving just minutes out of the box. Traxxas ProGraphix bodies are the hottest looking bodies around and are only available on Traxxas Ready-To-Race and Ready-To-Drive models.
