Where Power Meets Technology® For those who like their horsepower raw and screaming at the red line, the Traxxas Nitro Slash delivers with the award-winning nitro fury of the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine. The Traxxas Nitro Slash punches hard with massive torque off the line and a wide powerband—bury the throttle at anytime to send the rear S1 compound tires into a raging fury of roosting dirt. 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 Traxxas 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.

Built Traxxas Tough™

The Traxxas 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. Traxxas 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.
