Truck of the Week: 3/17/2013 Traxxas 1/16 Slash

The words Traxxas and scaler don’t normally go together, but an innovative RCer from Austria by the name of Daniel Siegl thought outside the proverbial box and created a cool custom creation that does indeed bring rock crawling style scale to a Traxxas truck. Daniel started with a 1/16-scale Slash and stretched it using Hot Racing’s chassis. He then swapped out the short shocks for Losi Mini Rock Crawler upgrade shocks. The body is a Nikko Nissan Titan hard plastic shell pulled from a toy-grade machine. The detailed interior is from a HPI Mini Desert Truck. The differentials are locked using Traxxas’ optional diff lockers. A Castle Creations Sidewinder 3 and Robbe Roxxy outrunner brushless motor provide a good blend of torque for crawling and speed for cruising. Daniel has put his truck to good use and even traveled all the way to California to participate in a RECON G6 event.
