Desert-racing legend and Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame member Rob MacCachren has one of the longest and most storied careers in motorsports—he won his first off-road championship at just 8 years old! In his nearly 40 years of racing, Rob’s long tally of wins includes three Borg Warner Cup wins, three Governor’s Cup wins, three consecutive Pro 2WD championships (2008-2010), and ten SCORE Baja victories (five each in the Baja 500 and Baja 1000). And now, Rob’s signature Mopar/RAM Pro 2WD is the latest Traxxas Slash Race Replica model!

Slash is truly brushless ready with a waterproof digital steering servo, full ball bearings, metal gear transmission, Torque-Control™ slipper clutch, planetary gear differential, and heavy-duty metal turnbuckles.

    That $460 is MSRP. The actual street price will be much lower.

    I agree. $460 is ridiculus. But, unless you want to buy off traxxas.com, it sells on ebay RTR with 7 cell battery and charger for $255.
