New from Traxxas:

Introducing the latest member of the VXL family; the awardwinning, best-selling Traxxas Slash, now with extreme Velineon Brushless Power. Slash VXL crushes the competition with brute force acceleration and unmatched top speed. With the included Power Cell 7-cell NiMh battery, Slash VXL rockets to over 40mph. Install optional 3S LiPo power, and Slash VXL blasts past 60mph!

Slash VXL includes the Velineon Brushless Power System with LiPo-ready VXL-3s speed control and high-rpm Velineon 3500 motor. But we didn’t stop there; for steering precision at maximum speed, the Slash VXL includes a new dual-bellcrank steering system with integrated servo-saver (originally developed for Slash 4X4). New heavy-duty universal-joint driveshafts were engineered to handle the massive brushless torque. Re-tuned suspension tightens up the handling for those high-speed runs. 60+mph performance requires long-range control, and Slash VXL delivers with the switch on and drive convenience of the TQ 2.4GHz high-output radio system with Traxxas Link™. Slash VXL: because at Traxxas, our idea of having fun is going faster than everyone else!
