Traxxas Slash models
Originally, this model was released in 2008, and they come in RTR (Ready To Run) form. This could easily be one of the most widespread rc off-road models families, so I’m just going to introduce some of the most important models.
- Nitro Slash was first introduced in 2013. It features single-speed transmission and it is utilizing TRX 3.3 Racing Engine. What could separate it from other similar models is that it is pretty fast considered it is just one of the off-road vehicles, and those are usually slower than racing car models. If you’d replace the nitro engine with a HPI 15CC gasoline engine you would have a wonderful ride. Not quite a gas powered 1/5 scale rc car but still the smallest fuel powered rc car.
- Slash 4X4 made its debut in 2009, and ever since then, it has been one of the best known off-road Slash models. It is 1/10 scale race car, and has almost no similarities to the Slash models which featured two-wheel drive. In best case, this rc model can reach the speed of 80 Mph.
Traxxas Revo models
- Slayer Pro 4X4 is one of the gas powered rc cars that is capable of reaching top speed over 50 Mph. Also, there is new version available, and it was released in 2010. This improved version features new tires and new shells as well.
- Summit was introduced in 2009, but no matter how durable it looks, it is not made for conquering the biggest rocks. Chassis, together with many other features, was transferred from other Revo model, called E-Revo, so if you’re familiar with it, than you know that Summit has EVX-2 waterproof electronic speed control system. Similar to many other models, Summit was re-designed in 2010, and it was slightly improved.
