Traxxas Slash 4x4 VXL w/On-Board Audio & TSM Stability Management

Summer is finally here, so it’s time to get outdoors, hit the dirt course and tear it up with the Traxxas Slash 4x4 VXL w/On-Board Audio & TSM Stability Management! This sporty truck comes in red, black, blue or white and comes fully assembled and ready to race with a Traxxas 7-cell 8.4-volt Power Cell iD battery pack, DC charger, Velineon Brushless Power System and a Race Replica painted body. Take this bad boy out and challenge your friends to race, but as you tear past them with the screaming sound of a Pro-4 engine, they’ll never know what hit ‘em. This dominant piece of engineering is any racer’s dream, but the powerful engine and sporty look aren’t the only things it has to offer.

State-of-the-art TSM Stability Management

Traxxas Stability Management allows you to enjoy the power, speed and acceleration that was built into the Slash 4x4 by making it easy to control on slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete and even ice and snow. Fire it off the starting line, and TSM goes into effect by sensing the truck’s direction and making steering corrections to provide straight-ahead full-throttle acceleration without fishtailing, spinouts or loss of control. TSM acts as the perfect on-board co-pilot that “feels” what the vehicle is doing and makes corrections for movements that even you can’t detect before it gets out of control.

On-Board Audio System

The audio system on board uses sounds that have been sampled from Traxxas team trucks. The ON/OFF button and volume controls allow you to adjust the system settings from stealth mode to wide-open. Runtime is not compromised as this system uses a very minimal amount of power from the battery, but it still produces intuitive sounds that respond to throttle input from the transmitter. This groundbreaking audio system delivers the full short course experience with the powerful and loud sounds of a 900 horsepower engine ripping through the gears.

This truck is perfect for any avid RC truck racer and is a must have for recreational use during the summer, when the terrain is at its optimal conditions. This is designed for the most experienced racers, so be sure you’re up to the challenge before you go out and take it for a spin. As always, be sure to have fun, keep punching that throttle and run your competition off the road with the Traxxas Slash 4x4 VXL!

Product Spotlight: AFX Super International 4-Lane Mega G+ HO Slot Car Track Set w/Tri-Power System

If you think slot car racing was hot back in the 1960s, it's sizzling now. AFX, the top name in the industry years ago is still at the forefront today, has just re-released their amazing, 4-lane Super International Slot Car Racing Set. AFX is the undisputed leader in this area for both quality and value, which means you don't have to pay the most but can still have the best! The design upgrades done to the ultra-lightweight Mega G+ Chassis, perfectly paired to the Tri-power Packs, two of which are included in the set, result in the finest out of the box slot car racing experience you could have. Seriously! These cars go fast, they're tough and durable, and the system lets drivers choose from three different levels of challenging action. This is done at the mere flip of a switch, which alters the speed of the car being adjusted.

Tri-Power Makes A Huge Difference

Beginners can have the pleasure usually only reserved for those with a certain amount of acquired slot car racing skill. This lets everyone learn to drive at their own pace without all the frustration of having your car fly off at every turn. At the beginners level, your car should stay on the track in 95% of the turns, no matter how much throttle is being applied. At intermediate, it's about 65% of the time, while at expert you've got full speed control.

International Competition

The International 4-Lane Mega G+ HO Set has been almost impossible to find for almost a year.  RC Superstore has them back in stock now at a great price, along with your favorite aftermarket cars and accessories. You get 86 pieces of track, the highest quality track made, which equals 50 linear feet. While most setups call for four lanes, you can go with just two lanes and get twice the distance. With the track supplied, you can build no less than 18 different world-class international racing track replicas.

Of course, you're free to build any configuration you'd like. The track-layout examples supplied with the set will all fit comfortably on a standard sized ping pong table, which will also give you the perfect height above floor level for your races. This system is especially appreciated by families whose members are at various skill levels, since the skill level requirements for each car can be individually adjusted.

Looks Aren't Everything, But…

This slot car set looks fantastic, is made to take plenty of abuse and still keep rolling and, in case you forgot, it's the fastest kid on the block! The fact that you can copy so many different International Speedways keeps things interesting and lets you dazzle your friends with your knowledge of International Racing! By the way, the power packs supplied with the system are directional, meaning you can change the direction the cars travel by just switching the direction of the plug. You should expect no less from the slot car industry's undisputed leader. After decades of technological advancements since "the good old days," these new slot car sets are a huge leap ahead from 60 years ago. This particular 4-lane Mega G+ race set upgrade was more than a full year in the making. Enjoy.

Product Spotlight: Traxxas Slash 2WD RTR Short Course Truck w/ On-Board Audio

RC off-road racing will never be the same, now that Traxxas has come out with the all-new Slash Short-Course Racing Truck that features a groundbreaking onboard audio system. If you've had experience driving the original RTR (Ready-To-Run) Slash you know that this award-winning 2WD race truck leaves little room for improvement. Somehow, though, with the addition of a realistic on-board audio system that precisely duplicates the sounds made by an actual, full-sized, 900+ hp Pro 4X4 race truck, the whole driving experience is improved immensely.

As Real as it Gets

This 1/10th-scale version is designed to match the characteristics of a full-sized 4X4 racer, from the giant-travel, 4-wheel, independent suspension that lets you fly through the jumps and rip around turns at full bore to the realistic tires that bite just right. When you advance the throttle on your Slash R/C Truck, the on-board audio immediately comes to life with the actual sounds you'd hear when throttling up its full-sized big brother. As you can imagine, 900+ horsepower of throaty throttle waiting to be unleashed is impressive, but when you hit the switch and start ripping down the course, whether at the track or in your own backyard, you'll hear realistic engine sounds as your truck goes through the gears with unequaled and impassioned power! You've never raced like this before.

Ready to Run Right Now

This truck is plug-'n-play. It comes ready to roll right out of the box, and is equipped with the most technologically advanced radio control system of any RTR racer. There are no channels to choose and no frequencies to manage. You just turn it on and the truck and controller communicate with each other automatically. Not only is the controller extremely precise in sending signals to the race truck, even with a hidden, internal antenna, but the immediate response capability extends to the motor sounds as well. You have to hear this monster in action to truly appreciate how great Traxxas has managed to replicate the authentic sounds of a real Pro 4X4 race truck in action.

Designed to Go Anywhere, Rain or Shine

Both the racer’s electronics and the audio components are weather sealed against the elements. Off-roading has never been more fun. The extra tall ground clearance lets you go where ordinary RC 4X4s would fear to tread. The powerful 12-Turn 550 modified Titan motor is virtually maintenance free. An extra feature that enhances the awesome audio effect is the ability to rev up the motor while in neutral. It also has a special "training" mode that, with the flip of a switch, limits full throttle down to 50%. That way, everybody can get in on the action.

Check out the videos on our site to hear it for yourself.  It sounds even more impressive in person!
