Yes it is. Its got the titan 12t motor which is fair. The traxxas slash vxl comes with the velineon brushless motor and an vxl3s esc. 100 dollars more but well worth it. You will want to upgrade later and it will cost about 150 extra. And the vxl comes with a 4x4 steering system which is quite the upgrade

Why on earth is the "normal" price of that slash almost 500 dollars???? That is the "basic" version now, it sells for 230 at my hobbyshop.

Slash is the greatest truck. Get the VXL version. You won't be dissapointed.
However XL-5 is good too its just not waterproof engine and slower but all over is great.
You can bash it!
You can smash it!
But you can't destroy it!

Русский Слаш, sorry to contradict you but whether XL-5/Titan or VXL-3S/Velineon, both of these versions of the Traxxas Slash are waterproof. I know, I have them both.

pnvv, I like my Losi vehicle very much but Traxxas vehicles seem to give you that 'joie de vivre.'
