This is the Traxxas Robby Gordon gordini Edition Dakar Slash with iD Technology included. Simply take it out of the box and you're ready for driving fun with factory-adjusted TQ 2.4GHz radio, XL-5 power system, and detailed instructions.
The award-winning Traxxas Slash puts you in the driver's seat for intense, high-flying off-road action. The Dakar Slash brings all the action home so you can experience high-speed head-to-head competition no matter where the terrain takes you--even water, mud, and snow thanks to Traxxas exclusive waterproof electronics! Robby's full-size Dakar truck embodies the spirit of Traxxas R/C with its 6.0 liter LS2 V8 racing engine, sand-shredding horsepower, 20-inch suspension travel, and desert-conquering durability. With the included TQ 2.4GHz radio system, you simply switch on and drive. The TQ's ergonomic design is comfortable for all-day driving, and its sleek lines are enhanced by an internal antenna that is impervious to damage. And best of all, there are no channels or frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun.
The Dakar Slash is fully equipped for off-road adventure. The unique chassis design provides huge center ground clearance to drive over deep ruts, rocks, and other obstacles that leave ordinary R/C trucks stuck on their low-slung chassis. The long-travel suspension and oil-filled shocks easily absorb jumps and rough terrain. In addition to capturing the square-shouldered look of the full-size truck, the Dakar Slash's full-coverage fenders let you race wheel to wheel without tangling tires. Advanced tread design and sophisticated rubber compounds provide incredible off-road grip with the versatility to perform well on concrete and asphalt.
With their groundbreaking waterproof electronics, Traxxas gives you the freedom to drive where you want to drive, even through water, snow, mud, and other wet-running conditions never possible before. The 2.4GHz mini receiver is protected against the elements in a unique o-ring sealed enclosure and the proven XL-5 speed control and high-torque 2075 steering servo are impervious to water, giving you the freedom to enjoy realistic all-weather desert-racing action.
The Titan 12T 550 modified motor delivers hard-hitting torque and high-RPM power to easily outperform "stock" motors. The XL-5 Speed Control offers high current handling, EZ-Set one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control. An integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through vent tunnels molded in the motor plate, keeping motor temperature down and power output high for faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life. Traxxas High-Current Connector's are standard to efficiently transfer every amp from the included Power Cell NiMH battery, and optional Power Cell LiPo packs. Three drive profiles, LiPo-ready low voltage detection, thermal overload protection, and incredibly low resistance--all features you expect to find only with expensive aftermarket speed controls.
Traxxas exclusive patent-pending Training Mode let's everyone get in on the racing action! All you'll need to do is simply press a button to limit full-throttle power to 50%. Training mode even makes it easy to hand the transmitter over to your friends who have never driven a radio-controlled truck before. Now young or inexperienced drivers to safely develop their control skills before unlocking the Dakar Slash's full power and speed capabiltiy
