The RC in this article has proven to us that it is worthy of being called our top recommended RC in the under $200 price range.

How To Replace A Traxxas Slash Motor

How to replace a Traxxas Slash motor

The Traxxas Slash is a waterproof, hobby grade RC vehicle.

We tell people that the Slash is an awesome off – road vehicle, but it is not a submarine or a boat!

While we tell people this, it does not mean we always listen to our own advice. ๐Ÿ™‚

After months of bashing the Slash and ignoring our own advice, we finally blew the motor on our Slash. We were overly impressed with the stock motor, so we went ahead and replaced the motor with a new stock motor.

If you like to bash the Slash as much as we do, you will eventually need to know how to replace a Traxxas Slash motor.

In this article, we walk you step by step through the process of replacing the motor with accompanying pictures.

And of course we included a video!

How Fast Is The Traxxas Slash?

How fast is the Traxxas Slash

We love to do speed tests on RC vehicles!

We want to ensure that when a RC manufacturer makes a claim that their RC goes xxx mph that they are telling the truth.

In How Fast Is The Traxxas Slash, we break out the radar gun to put Traxxxas’s claim of 20 mph “out of the box” for the Traxxas Slash 2wd to the test.

This Slash is a large 1/10 scale RC that is built with top notch Traxxas quality. Hitting the 20 mph mark without going brush-less will be pretty impressive.

The Slash is one of our top recommended RC’s in the under $250 range!

Will it pass the speed test?
