Traxxas Slayer Pro 4X4: The Next Generation Of Nitro Short-Course Performance!
Short-Course Action With Incredible Power, Authentic Handling, and Serious Speed!
Bigger. Faster. Louder. The new Slayer Pro 4X4 delivers the screaming sound and ballistic thrust that every nitro driver craves. Now with a 10% larger footprint, Slayer Pro 4X4’s new longer wheelbase chassis and wide track stance deliver enhanced stability in rough conditions and radically improved high speed cornering for incredible side-by-side, fender-banging racing action. Extreme TRX 3.3 power punches hard and revs fast to rip past the competition.
The amazing Revo-Spec linkage-based suspension and hard-anodised GTR shocks deliver seemingly bottomless suspension travel that simulates the handling and jumping ability of full-size Pro 4X4 trucks. Slayer Pro 4X4’s new bodywork and officially licensed BFGoodrich or Kumho tyres bring together scale looks and 50+mph performance for all-day fun, excitement, and competition. It’s the nitro short-course truck that could only come from Traxxas, The Fastest Name In Radio Control.
Extreme Power TRX 3.3 Racing Engine
For those who like their horsepower raw and screaming at the red line, Slayer Pro 4X4 delivers with the award-winning nitro fury of the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine. The Slayer Pro 4X4 punches hard with massive torque off the line and a wide powerband – bury the throttle at anytime to send all four tyres into a raging fury of roosting dirt.
The TRX 3.3 Racing Engine features a precision composite slide carburettor, 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.
EZ-Start Electric Starting
Maximum power, maximum convenience – that’s how Traxxas does nitro. Only the Traxxas EZ-Start offers the pure convenience of true one-handed operation and complete on-board, push-button electric starting. The Traxxas EZ-Start lights your glow plug and starts your engine quickly and smoothly at the push of a button.
Traxxas’ exclusive Smart Start technology monitors critical starting functions, automatically sensing and diagnosing potential problems for trouble-free engine starting every time! LEDs provide real-time status, even alerting you when a glow plug has failed. Slayer Pro 4X4 includes the required 6-cell battery and charger to power the EZ-Start system for total convenience. The starter battery stays with the EZ-Start, eliminating the need to carry the speed-robbing weight of extra batteries on-board.
2.4GHz Convenience and Control
Slayer Pro 4X4 includes the Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz High Output radio system with Traxxas Link. This new system offers the unbeatable convenience of â€œno channels, no crystalsâ€ 2.4Ghz technology, and the long-range security of a high-output signal – but that’s just the beginning. The new, patent-pending Traxxas Link technology stores settings for up to 20 Traxxas Link-enabled models, with no naming or â€œmodel memoryâ€ settings required. Just power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialled in immediately!
The new TQ 2.4GHz High Output radio is also fully adjustable; steering and throttle end points can be set precisely, and the Multi-Function knob can be programmed to control Steering Sensitivity (Expo), Throttle Sensitivity (Expo), Steering Percentage (Dual Rate), Braking Percentage (Dual Rate), or Throttle Trim.
Suspension & Chassis Innovation From The Award-Winning Revo 3.3
Eight National Championship titles have proven the superior design of the Revo-Spec rocker-actuated suspension system that mirrors the huge travel and plush damping of the full-size Pro 4X4 short course race trucks. Full-time 4-Wheel-Drive delivers track-gripping traction for hard hitting acceleration through the turns and precise control that lets you thread the needle through the traffic.
The geometry of the patent-pending suspension design multiplies the total wheel travel to soak up big hits that would sideline other trucks. The suspension action is light and supple over small bumps, but when bigger jolts compress the suspension farther, the progressive rocker geometry instantly increases spring and damping rates to absorb the impact. And it’s fully adjustable; ride height, progressive rate, and damping can all be fine tuned independently. This no-compromise setup is simply not possible with conventional suspension designs.
Slayer Pro 4X4 is built on the long-wheelbase 3D semi-monocoque chassis originally developed for the Revo 3.3. Formed from 3mm 6061 aluminum, the chassis is blue-anodised and T6 hardened for strength. The integrated battery box accepts 4 AA cells or a 5-cell rechargeable receiver pack (sold separately). The ultra-compact throttle servo mount ties rigidly into the chassis and supports the air filter, and the low-profile receiver box protects our latest 5-channel 2.4GHz Traxxas Link-enabled micro receiver. A blue-anodized crimp nut locks the antenna tube in place, so it stays put no matter how rough the racing gets, and an integrated roll hoop/carrying handle protects the TRX 3.3 engine from rollover abuse.
Authentic Pro 4X4 Looks
With four full-size trucks in TORC competition, Traxxas knows how an R/C short-course racer should look and handle. Slayer Pro 4X4’s full-fendered bodywork captures the look of the full-size Pro 4X4 race machines, and the chrome split-spoke wheels have a bead-lock look just like the real deal. For a track-ready look that performs, officially-licensed BFGoodrich and Kumho treads moulded in a specially formulated rubber compound give Slayer Pro 4X4 the perfect balance of forward traction and slip-angle in turns.
Four Race Replica body styles are offered, each fully decorated with graphics licensed from the full-size trucks. Whether you choose the Mark or Mike Jenkins Edition (Traxxas), Greg Adler Edition (4 Wheel Parts) or Scott Douglas/Mike Oberg Edition (Amsoil), you’ll discover R/C racing has never been so real.
