Traxxas Slash 2WD Parts

Out of the box, the Traxxas Slash 2WD VXL already boasts some pretty impressive performance figures, as does the Traxxas XL-5. Both of these vehicles also come in several different configurations, including as RC truck kits that you can build on your own. You may want to consider additional batteries as well as a 4-Amp charger, so that you don't ever get caught in a situation where your power packs aren't charged up.

Additional replacement parts, like cooling fans, are a vital choice for anyone who plans to do any serious riding. There's a risk that your vehicle could overheat and these excellent components can help to reduce that risk. Fortunately, Traxxas' designers have taken years worth of data into account and planned for a number of potential maladies so that you can get the most out of your scale models without worrying about them.

You'll even be able to find a hex and nut driver set, so you'll have the tools that you need if you have to open up your vehicle. It comes in a convenient pouch with a handle, so you could bring it with you to the track. In fact, you'll probably want to stock up on many different types of replacement parts and bring them with you so you could do any necessary work while you're in the pits.

Traxxas Slash Brushless Upgrade

While the Traxxas Slash 2WD XL-5 is already an impressive piece of equipment, there's no reason that you can't invest in further upgrades to make it all the better. Consider, in particular, brushless motor upgrades so you won't have to concern yourself with motor brushes. Brushless motor upgrades will last longer than other types of motor kits, due in no small part to the fact that they have essentially fewer components than those with brushes. There's nothing for the electric motor to grind down even if you have a habit of pushing your vehicle's speed to its real world prototype limits.

Some scale model motorists have taken to referring to these upgrades as hop-ups because of how much extra power they can give an already beefy truck.
