Traxxas Ford Mustang 5.0 Drag Slash RTR - Black
ENGINEERED TO WIN™
Traxxas Drag Slash® delivers the ultimate drag racing experience for racers of all skill levels. Innovative performance features like the exclusive Drag Mode with Trans Brake get Drag Slash off the line in record time. Proven Velineon® horsepower delivers strong, reliable launches through the fortified Pro Series Magnum 272R™ transmission for race-winning performance. Drag Slash does it all with the classic Fox-body Mustang style. This is no prep racing the Traxxas way.
ALL-NEW PRO SERIES MAGNUM 272R
The Magnum 272R transmission is built for hard-hitting torque. The 272R features a blue-anodized aluminum motor plate, all-metal gears, and a sealed silicone-filled 4-gear differential tuned specifically for drag racing with 500K heavy-weight diff fluid.
TSM WITH DRAG RACE MODE
It’s easy to drive like a pro with Traxxas Stability Management®. TSM makes racing more fun by allowing the driver to experience the fastest possible straight line acceleration with incredible stability and precise control. After you cross the finish line, TSM dramatically improves braking performance and helps prevent spin outs.
TRAXXAS TRANS BRAKE
Think you’re quick on the trigger? This is quicker. Hold the TQi transmitter’s Trans Brake Switch and set the throttle at the starting line – when the flag drops, release the switch for the quickest launch every time.
ULTIMATE TRACTION AND CONTROL
Scale realism meets engineered performance. Ultra-wide Mickey Thompson® ET Drag® Slicks feature an innovative carcass design and molded high-density foam inserts for massive traction off the line and down the track.
Traxxas combines legendary Slash durability with the latest high-tech features to create a world-class drag racer. Wrapped in a beautiful fully-detailed Chevrolet® C10 or Ford® Fox Mustang body, the result is nothing short of perfection.
FORD MUSTANG NOW AVAILABLE
The new Drag Slash Mustang allows Ford fans join the no prep drag racing scene in classic 80’s style. Modeled after the notchback 5.0 Mustang Fox body, the latest Drag Slash brings the full racing experience to drivers of all skill levels.
Look beneath Drag Slash’s striking body to reveal the design details that make Drag Slash the Quickest on the Street™. Traxxas examined every detail in order to create a dynamic, high-tech vehicle that’s as fast on the strip as it is fun to drive.
Rich ProGraphix® Paint
Drag Slash’s lustrous paint shines with a deep gloss and light-catching good looks beneath the durable, polycarbonate body. From the stand to the strip, the C10 and Fox Mustang Bodies turns heads with their dramatic presence.
Deeply Recessed and Detailed Bed
Drag Slash’s Chevy C10 body recreates the flat-plate tinwork of full-size draggers with a recessed bed that’s realistically “tubbed” to hug wide Mickey Thompson slicks. Functional, authentic details like this make Drag Slash the best-looking no-prep racer on the strip.
Drag Slash’s large Pro Street-style wing is a functional part of its drag-prepped design. The wing is injection molded for durability and strength. At speed, the wing generates traction-enhancing downforce and reduces drag-inducing turbulence.
If a run goes wrong, Drag Slash can take the hit with its chassis-mounted front bumper. Firm foam pads the body as the heavy-duty upper and lower bumper supports protect the front suspension.
Drag-Tuned Ultra Shocks
Ultra Shocks are proven performers on Traxxas’ hardest-hitting off-roaders. Drag Slash’s Ultra Shocks are strip-ready with stiffer springs, thicker silicone oil, and custom bump stops optimized to provide smooth ride control and race-winning grip.
Rugged 4mm steel turnbuckles make it easy to experiment with Drag Slash’s camber and toe-in, no disassembly required. Heavy-duty rod ends and captured, large-diameter pivot balls assure race-ready durability, and an adjustment wrench is included.
Adjustable Body Posts
Slam the body low for smooth tracks or raise it for rougher surfaces. Drag Slash lets you set the perfect ride height to suit track conditions. The front body posts are fully adjustable, and adjustable rear body posts are available as an accessory.
A low center of gravity improves stability and handling precision. The low-slung chassis allows the body to hug the track with an aggressive, aero stance for peak drag-racing performance, and sleek, modular design simplifies maintenance.
The difference between advancing and going home early boils down to traction off the line. Drag Slash gives you maximum control with a five-position wheelie bar and two choices of wheel size. The wheelie bar’s reinforced dual-ladder frame provides maximum rigidity to get the holeshot—and the win!
Fixed Gear Mesh
Drag Slash’s gear mesh stays perfectly set launch after launch, even as high-power drag launches try to force the gears apart. The rigid aluminum motor plate and fixed-mesh insert prevents motor movement for maximum reliability and precise gear mesh.
Different tracks require different levels of grip, that’s just part of no-prep racing. Drag Slash makes it easy to change your differential’s locking action by varying the fluid viscosity inside. Disconnect the driveshafts and open the hatch; you’ll be on your way to victory in minutes.
All-Metal Internal Gears
The race-ready transmission is built for massive torque with high-strength steel input, idler, and differential gears and large-diameter bearings. The input gear is keyed and press fit onto the top shaft for greater precision and strength than a pin-mounted gear.
Sealed Bevel-Gear Differential
The heavy-duty steel-gear differential is X-ring and gasket-sealed and silicone-filled to resist unloading under power. Oil viscosity is optimized for drag racing, and the diff is easy to refill with thicker or thinner fluid to suit track conditions.
Fortified for hard launches and superior durability, the Drag Slash’s Extreme-Duty driveshafts are 20% larger than standard Slash driveshafts for outrageous power handling. The larger diameter shafts offer the same articulation and suspension travel, but are rated for even more tire-shredding torque.
Precision Transmission Case
The Pro Series Magnum 272R transmission is engineered for strength with its rugged, reinforced case. The case halves engage precisely to seal out dirt and debris, and create a rigid structure to support the motor, suspension arms, and wheelie bar. The thick T-6 aluminum motor plate resists flex and acts as a heatsink.
The Pro Series differential is ball-bearing supported directly at the differential case, rather than mounting bearings on the differential outputs. This design better supports the differential, reduces bearing drag, and isolates differential action.
