Traxxas Nitro Slash

Our own 3DBill stopped by the Hobby Town in Orland Park, IL. and snapped a few pictures of the new Traxxas Nitro Slash. First impressions were decent, though he’s not a nitro guy at all. Apparently he’s waiting for a gas version. I don’t suggest holding your breath on that one. I’m not so sure I like the looks of that battery box hanging out back there. The way we play demo derby, I hope that thing is bullet proof.

Enjoy the pics.
