PRODUCT REVIEW: Traxxas Slash 4×4 #68086-21

Here is a nice un-boxing video done by  Netcruzer from the forum. Follow his thread for more updates. Be sure to check out is channel for other cool content.

I got hooked on hobby grade RC and racing thru Traxxas in the mid-90s.  Stadium Trucks, Buggies, Nitro, On-Road, TRX PRO stuff, back when Traxxas used to actually compete in RC racing, and I won my local class championships running Traxxas.  They are quite different now, recycling ancient designs and all RTR, but they still make some really cool vehicles.

My only outdoor RC basher right now is the 1:10 scale Summit.  Awesome machine, but I was craving something a little faster, smaller, and something you only need 1 batt charged up to run with.

Here I’m unboxing my new Short Course Truck. The newest Traxxas Slash 4×4 (68086-21) with LCG chassis, Stability Management (TSM) and On-Board Audio (OBA).  It’s pretty awesome. More setup, upgrades, and running videos will be done later.   Thanks for watching.

First setup video is online now. Basic stuff of course, but I’m not making this for people who already know about it.
