Traxxas Slash 4X4 Platinum Edition With Low-CG Chassis And Hard-Anodized GTR Aluminum Shocks

Nov 12, 2012 2 Comments by

This new truck not only features a low-cg chassis and GTR aluminum shocks, but it also comes with a Velineon brushless power system, officially-licensed BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A tires, and front and rear swaybars. Check out all the info below:

The next-generation Slash 4X4 Platinum Edition pushes the performance envelope farther than ever with a redesigned Low-CG chassis that delivers superior handling, maximum corner speed, and lightning fast steering response. Higher speeds make the suspension work harder, so the Platinum Edition includes GTR hard-anodized aluminum shocks with PTFE-coated 13mm bores and titanium-nitride shafts for smooth, consistent damping lap after lap. The Platinum Edition then checks off nearly every box on the Slash 4X4 option sheet to deliver the ultimate in short-course racing performance. The final touches are up to you; Slash 4X4 Platinum Edition is fully assembled and ready to complete with your radio system and battery, and the clear body let’s you apply your signature style.

  • NEW Low-CG chassis design
  • NEW Hard-anodized GTR aluminum shocks with PTFE-coated 13mm bores and 3.5mm titanium-nitride shafts
