How To Build A Slash Dragster

Turn your 2WD Slash into a Classic Hot Rod Wheelie Machine

The Traxxas Slash is the most popular short course RC truck of all time. You’ve likely seen Slash trucks at your local RC racetrack, skate park, or in backyards across the country. The Slash is renowned for its rugged off-road capability, durability, and no-nonsense attitude.

The Slash moves easily from dirt to tarmac with hundreds of accessories available, but what happens when you push its versatility to the extreme? Watch what happens when a 2WD Slash transforms from off-road beast into a wheelie-popping dragster.
