Following up their release of the Traxxas Slash 4X4 Platinum Edition, Traxxas has now released a Slash 4X4 Ultimate short course truck that comes standard with a LCG chassis, 13mm GTR aluminum shocks, and even a Power Cell 5000mAh 2-cell LiPo battery and charger.  Check out all the features in the press release below:

The next-generation Slash 4X4 Ultimate unleashes Ready-To-Race® performance at the highest level. LiPo power is standard equipment. The included 5000mAh Power Cell LiPo delivers higher capacity, increased speed, and faster charging to keep track time up and lap times down. The all-new Low-CG (center of gravity) chassis provides superior handling and maximum corner speed. Rough-track control is enhanced by new high-volume, hard-anodized GTR shocks with PTFE-coated bores that provide smooth suspension action and consistent damping, lap after lap. Slash 4X4 Ultimate’s low-CG design and state-of-the-art suspension combine to deliver lightning-fast steering, composed handling, and precision control that set the standard for short-course performance. The TQi 2.4GHz Radio System with Docking Base and Slash 4X4 Ultimate’s factoryinstalled telemetry sensors enable real-time data capture and set the standard for tuning ease and versatility. To truly make this the Ultimate Slash 4X4, the specs are completed with nearly every factory option available, from aluminum suspension components to a sealed, silicone-filled differential. Simply put, it’s the best of the best.
