The Traxxas Drag Slash has been engineered with thoughtful features and innovative performance to win at any level of skill and experience. The Pro Series Magnum 272R gearbox is engineered for massive torque. The proven Velineon power system delivers strong, reliable muscle to lay down the quickest passes. The exclusive Drag Mode and Trans Brake provide incredible versatility—and Drag Slash does it all with classic Chevy C10 style. This is no prep racing the Traxxas way.
ALL-NEW PRO SERIES MAGNUM 272R™
The Magnum 272R transmission is built for hard-hitting torque. The 272R features a blue-anodized aluminum motor plate, all-metal gears, and a sealed silicone-filled 4-gear differential tuned specifically for drag racing with 500K heavy-weight diff fluid.
TSM WITH DRAG RACE MODE
It’s easy to drive like a pro with Traxxas Stability Management. TSM makes racing more fun by allowing the driver to experience the fastest possible straight line acceleration with incredible stability and precise control. After you cross the finish line, TSM dramatically improves braking performance and helps prevent spin outs.
TRAXXAS TRANS BRAKE
Think you’re quick on the trigger? This is quicker. Hold the TQi transmitter’s Trans Brake Switch and set the throttle at the starting line – when the flag drops, release the switch for the quickest launch every time.
ULTIMATE TRACTION AND CONTROL
Scale realism meets engineered performance. Ultra-wide Mickey Thompson ET Drag Slicks feature an innovative carcass design and molded high-density foam inserts for massive traction off the line and down the track.
Traxxas combines legendary Slash durability with the latest high-tech features to create a world-class drag racer. Wrapped in a beautiful fully-detailed Chevrolet C10 body, the result is nothing short of perfection.
The Velineon VXL-3s system is paired with optimized gearing to take advantage of the maximum torque output from the Velineon 3500 motor. The VXL-3s system delivers strong, reliable muscle to lay down the quickest passes, run after run.
Drag Slash stuns at the strip with its perfectly-stanced ’67 Chevy C10 body, available in six colors. The classic C10 shape is tubbed to accept super-wide slicks, and fully detailed with a molded grille, rear wing, and LED-ready light buckets.
An extended length wheelie bar with 5 fixed levels of adjustment provides ultimate rigidity and arrow straight launches in any track conditions. Two sizes of wheels are included to further refine tuning. From low and mean to wild, wheels-up action the full length of the track, Drag Slash does it all.
Not every drag race takes place on a smooth prepared track; that’s just part of the “no prep” scene. The Drag Slash’s waterproof electronics are ready to take on any back street grudge match, regardless of rain or water on the track.
Look beneath the striking C10 body to reveal the design details that make Drag Slash the Quickest on the Street™. Traxxas examined every detail in order to create a dynamic, high-tech truck that's as fast on the strip as it is fun to drive.
DEEPLY RECESSED AND DETAILED BED
Drag Slash’s Chevy C10 body recreates the flat-plate tinwork of full-size draggers with a recessed bed that’s realistically “tubbed” to hug wide Mickey Thompson slicks. Functional, authentic details like this make Drag Slash the best-looking no-prep racer on the strip.
The Pro Street-style wing is a functional part of the Chevy C10’s drag-prepped design. The wing is injection molded for durability and strength. At speed, the wing generates traction-enhancing downforce and reduces drag-inducing turbulence.
DRAG-TUNED ULTRA SHOCKS
Ultra Shocks are proven performers on Traxxas’ hardest-hitting off-roaders. Drag Slash’s Ultra Shocks are strip-ready with stiffer springs, thicker silicone oil, and custom bump stops optimized to provide smooth ride control and race-winning grip.
If a run goes wrong, Drag Slash can take the hit with its chassis-mounted front bumper. Firm foam pads the body as the heavy-duty upper and lower bumper supports protect the front suspension.
ALL-METAL INTERNAL GEARS
The race-ready transmission is built for massive torque with high-strength steel input, idler, and differential gears and large-diameter bearings. The input gear is keyed and press fit onto the top shaft for greater precision and strength than a pin-mounted gear.
Fortified for hard launches and superior durability, the Drag Slash’s Extreme-Duty driveshafts are 20% larger than standard Slash driveshafts for outrageous power handling. The larger diameter shafts offer the same articulation and suspension travel, but are rated for even more tire-shredding torque.
