Robby Gordon is well known for versatile driving skills that have earned him success in everything from NASCAR to short-course off-road racing. Robby got his start as a desert racer in 1986, and he remains a force in this unique brand of high-speed, high-endurance competition. Unmistakable in his tough black and vivid orange race trucks, Robby is a fan favorite and a top contender when the green flag drops on the famous Dakar Rally. And now you can drive Robby’s ride yourself with the Traxxas Robby Gordon Edition Dakar Slash!
The award-winning Traxxas Slash puts you in the driver’s seat for intense, high-flying off-road action. 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. 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!
Precision 2.4GHz Control Radio System
With the TQ™ 2.4GHz radio system, you just switch on and drive. There are no channels or frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. The TQ’s ergonomic design is comfortable for all-day driving, and lightweight with just four AA batteries on board (batteries not included). The TQ scores on style with its black-chrome wheel and smoothly integrated handle, and the internal-antenna design gives the transmitter a sleek profile while shielding the antenna from damage.
4-amp DC Peak Detecting Fast Charger
For quick, convenient, hassle-free charging, a 4amp DC fast charger is included to maximize runtime and minimize down time. The included NiMH charger uses a 12-Volt DC power outlet for universal high-output charging. The brilliant LED provides charging status as soon as the battery is connected. The charger is optimized for charging your Traxxas iD Power Cell NiMH battery. Peak-detection circuitry makes sure the battery receives a full charge every time. The status LED flashes green to indicate when charging is in progress, then turns solid green when charging is complete for foolproof charging, peak performance, and maximum runtime.
Traxxas Power Cell NiMH Battery with iD
Robby Gordon Dakar Edition Slash includes a Traxxas iDTM Power CellTM Battery Packs are optimized for free-flowing power and maximum punch with premium quality, low-resistance cells; flexible, silicone-jacketed 12-gauge wire; heavy-duty welded tabs; and Traxxas High-Current Connectors. Traxxas iD chargers (sold separately) auto-detect iD-equipped Power Cell batteries and automatically set and optimize charge settings. Precision assembly with attractive, individually wrapped cells and clear overwrap complete the package.
The Dakar Slash is fully equipped for off-road adventure. The long-travel suspension and oil-filled shocks easily absorb jumps and rough terrain. 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. Advanced tread design and sophisticated rubber compounds provide incredible off-road grip with the versatility to perform well on concrete and asphalt. 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.
Waterproof Electronics Extend Your Driving Fun
Traxxas gives you the freedom to drive where you want to drive, even through water, mud, snow, and other wet-running conditions never possible before. The proven XL-5 speed control and high-torque 2075 steering servo are impervious to water, and the 2.4GHz mini receiver is protected against the elements in a unique o-ring sealed enclosure, 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. 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. The XL-5 Speed Control offers high current handling, EZ-Set® one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control. 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. The Patented 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.
Traxxas’ exclusive patented Training Mode let’s everyone get in on the racing action. Just press a button to limit full-throttle power to 50%. This allows young or inexperienced drivers to safely develop their control skills before unlocking the Dakar Slash’s full power and speed capabiltiy. Training mode even makes it easy to hand the transmitter over to your friends who have never driven a radio-controlled truck before.
The Dakar Slash is ready to make the jump to extreme Velineon™ brushless horsepower, no modifications required. The Velineon power system (sold separately) installs in minutes and boosts the Dakar Slash’s top speed to over 40mph with the included 7-cell NiMH battery. Add an 11.1V Traxxas Power Cell LiPo battery (sold separately), and unleash over 60mph! Bigger roosts, higher speeds, and higher jumps are right at your fingertips. The Magnum 272 transmission’s steel gears, full ball bearings, universal-joint driveshafts, and Torque Control slipper clutch are all rated for extreme brushless horsepower–exactly what you need for peak power delivery and long-lasting, all-day fun.
