Today I will present the unmanned ground vehicle the fastest I’ve ever seen. The black and white unmanned truck Slash Fox 4WD 1/10 scale Traxxas is as impressive as its name might suggest. Read this article to learn all about this monster truck midrange able to achieve above-average speeds. If it were a little larger, you could drive it to get to work!
Traxxas Slash Fox offers the advantages of a classic monster truck and a super-fast race car. I was immediately impressed by the size of the truck, even though I was somewhat concerned about the tires that are smaller than trucks and Stampede Traxxas Summit.I’ll talk more later in this article.
I really liked the elegant black and white style of Slash Fox. It is obviously quite heavy, but not as heavy as the Summit. I could not believe my eyes when I read about the large box of Fox, he could reach the speed of 100 km / h. This seems to me completely crazy! I was anxious to go outside in a large open space for me to realize the speed of the car.
How long does it take to assemble the Traxxas Slash Fox?
Like all other unmanned Traxxas truck I recently tried, no assembly is required. Just charge the battery for about 45 minutes before using.
What are the batteries used in the Slash Traxxas truck Fox and how much is needed?
Fox works with a rechargeable NiMH iD 3000 mAh and 8.4 V (supplied), and the transmitter with four AA batteries (not included).For the Fox reaches its maximum speed, you need to use a more powerful battery (LiPo like iD battery 5000 mAh 11.1V and I used).Check Batteries and Chargers section below for more information.
What are the characteristics of mobility and range of Slash Traxxas truck Fox?
According to what is written on the box, the Fox can reach the insane speed of over 100 km / h (over 60 mi / h) when a more powerful battery. The battery supplied allows the truck to rush to 65 km / h (over 40 mi / h). It’s crazy! As to the scope, I could easily drive the truck at a distance of 300 feet, no problem. I bet I could do it even further if I had more space to drive this little car.
Slash Traxxas truck Fox he offers sound and light effects?
This truck has no lighting effects, but it makes racing sounds and classic automobile.
What is the age range suggested for users Slash Fox Traxxas truck?
The recommended age to play with the Fox (as with the Stampede and Summit) is 14 years old. This is the recommended minimum age to play with this vehicle without adult supervision. In my opinion, because of the incredible speed it can reach, it is not suitable for children under 14 years. In fact, some adults with driving licenses should not lead the meteor for the same reason. You really have to be focused!
On a scale of 0-5, how does the truck Slash Fox Traxxas impressive?
I give an excellent rating of 4.5 / 5 in Traxxas Slash Fox. He deserves this rating mainly for its impressive speed and elegant style. Overall, the Traxxas Slash Fox is a ROV really great and super fun to drive
Test and set
Fox was more difficult to drive than I had expected. When you have an unmanned truck can darken to 100 km / h, not bad need space to fly it. AGAINST YOU I play with the truck on a busy road with real cars and real trucks for several reasons. First, it could be very dangerous. You also risk damaging your toy and the vehicle of someone. Use care when playing with this truck. I had trouble finding a suitable place to fly it. I typically try this kind of unmanned vehicle in a local park or in my alley, but Fox is going too fast for me to lead him into a narrow alley, and the local park is usually crowded with people. This is not usually a problem, but I did not feel like running into someone with a rapid unmanned truck, and the idea of having a group of children running around in the park behind the Slash Fox did not like especially.
I found some quieter moments to try the truck, but wherever I go, I never had enough space to take full advantage of its capabilities. Fox goes so fast it must constantly do change direction even if you have a soccer field. If you intend to purchase a Fox, try to locate large open spaces for the lead. Canada is full of this kind of space, but if you live in town, you will have more difficulty finding a great place.
The Fox is a remote-controlled toys the most fun I’ve tried. There is nothing better than a blazing speed to make things even more fun, and Fox holds much the same way if he happens to skidding and swerving. It is much more efficient on a dry, flat and paved on a bumpy and wet ground (grass, earth, etc.). The only time I struggled to keep Fox on its four wheels, this is when I flew on a sloping road. She was paved, but as it was wet that day, it was a little too slippery for the Fox can go downhill with confidence. By cons, back up the hill was a real pleasure. Fox climbed the coast at full speed, with traction and control close to perfection. Only when he descended the slope that I lost control of the truck and it was skidding before reversing. Fox is fun, but it is not perfect.
Take a look at some of the accessories supplied with the Fox (tools, stickers, quick charger and additional parts) on the right picture. There are not as many as for the Summit, but there is enough to repair, improve or decorate your vehicle.
The emitter of Fox is between the Stampede and the Summit. Once again, it is a model of 2.4 GHz with the same system of direction and acceleration than others. The location of the on / off button and the four AA batteries is also the same. The only extra features on this remote compared to the Stampede are the multifunction control (to adjust Traxxas stability management system that allows to easily control the Fox when driving on slippery surfaces such as ice, snow, the earth and the cabinet wet or very smooth concrete), the “Neutral” button (which controls the neutral position of the accelerator control between 50/50 and 70/30 to give more space to the forward position) and the “Menu” button red top of the remote control next to the knob. This remote control has no option of low and high speed (unlike that of the Summit truck) or T-Lock locking differentials. As I said earlier, although it is equipped with Traxxas stability management system, I have not found that Fox offered the best skid control. Once, I tried the Fox, and he hurtled at high speed into my lane, I braked suddenly and made a slip 40 ft. It works pretty well. He only knocked once when I drove over a speed bump at full speed with my camera attached to the front to capture the action from the driver’s seat. The truck has lost some of its stability during the jump because of the extra weight in the front. Watch my video below to see for yourself how much fun it is to be at the wheel of the Fox!
Pros and cons
The biggest advantage of the Traxxas Slash Fox is its speed. If you like rush at full speed, the truck you need. I’ve never seen anything like it.Fox can go as fast as some motor vehicles! Of course, you do not have to drive at full speed, and you can adjust the control parameters to reduce the maximum speed for safer driving and easier control.But who would do that?
The only downside of this truck is simply the space to enjoy. As I have said many times in this article, the biggest difficulty is to find an open space large enough to take full advantage of the capabilities of the truck, which makes sense when you have a remote-controlled truck can darken 100 km / h. Find a large space to drive your truck (as the Utah salt flats), and all your problems will be solved!
Batteries and Chargers
The battery required for this vehicle is a rechargeable NiMH battery iD Power Cell 8.4 V to 7 cell 3000 mAh (illustrated left). There should be about 45 minutes to load the vehicle with the quick charger (included; shown below) or the multipurpose feeder EZ-Peak More Traxxas (shown somewhat lower).This battery should get you about 15 minutes. To go faster, use a Traxxas battery more powerful. There are several compatible models.
The Stampede is offered with a quick charger that plugs into a standard cigarette lighter (shown at right). I advise you NOT to recharge the battery while driving, as this could be very dangerous. It could even be that the vehicle caught fire or the battery explodes. Therefore, you might want to purchase a power adapter AC / DC Traxxas that would allow you to use this charger with a standard wall outlet (shown at far right).
Even better, you could buy an EZ-Peak charger More Traxxas, which is safe and easy to use. These chargers operate through a system called “automatic battery identification iD”, which automatically recognizes the iD Traxxas battery you use (and adapt to). The charger can then optimize the loading conditions of the battery used, which is very convenient. Simply connect the battery (or cell) in the EZ-Peak charger and press the “Start” button and let it down for 2 seconds. You do not need to know everything about batteries to optimize the performance of your batteries and your vehicle.
If the batteries you use are not type iD, you can still load them using the EZ-Peak charger. However, you must manually change the settings to get proper loading. This is rather easy to do; Moreover, the charger recognizes the battery type used (NiMH or lithium polymer) and will adjust accordingly in the presence of iD battery. You can even get an extra battery EZ-Peak Traxxas, allowing you to charge two battery packs at once. This is particularly useful if your vehicle needs two separate sets of batteries to operate.
I loved the Traxxas Slash Fox, and I think most of the unmanned vehicle enthusiasts will share my enthusiasm. I would not recommend this Traxxas vehicle to beginners midrange. In my view, beginners should rather choose a more low-end model. By cons, if you already have some experience of Traxxas vehicles steering, a large enough field to drive at full speed and the budget to buy it, I highly recommend it. Remember that the higher the price of the truck, the higher we go from a hobby to passion. I think the Traxxas Slash Fox suits enthusiasts unmanned vehicles. If you are one of them, you are sure to have fun like crazy with this truck!
