Performance Transmission by Pro-Line
This product was added to our catalog on July 17, 2012.
This is an optional Pro-Line Performance Transmission, and is intended for use with the Traxxas Slash, Electric Stampede, Electric Rustler and Bandit vehicles. The 2WD Slash is one of the most important and successful vehicles in the history of RC because it brought affordable scale realism to the masses. Since its release, racers have been modifying and hopping up every aspect of the vehicle to improve its performance, but they have always been stuck with the heavy, non-adjustable, non-racing inspired transmission...until now! After over a year of design, development and testing, the Pro-Line Performance Transmission is here to bring your Slash up to racing specifications. Every feature you would expect to find in a high-end race transmission is now available for your Slash. When you combine the transmission with the PowerStroke shock system and ProTrac suspension kit, will help to transform your truck into a true racing machine. The Performance Transmission is also a great addition to your Electric Stampede 2WD, Electric Rustler or Bandit*!
Pre-Assembled – Install and Go
Transmissions are complicated and have a lot of moving parts. Pro-Line has done the work for you and pre-assembled the transmission to get you to the track faster! All you have to do is Install and Go! The Sealed, Oil-filled Differential has been pre-filled with 5,000 wt. diff oil and the slipper system has been pre-set for proper performance.
Sealed, Oil-Filled Gear Differential
The single biggest feature and upgrade over the stock transmission is Pro-Line’s Performance Differential. The design is based off of 1/8 Buggy style sealed differentials and is completely tunable to current track conditions by changing the weight of the diff oil. The differential features super smooth steel internal diff gears for the ultimate in durability, and 4 O-Rings and a diff gasket that seals against fluid leakage. You will be amazed at how smooth the differential is and how much it improves the performance of your vehicle.
Race Inspired Slipper System with Vented Discs
The Performance Transmission features a proven, race style slipper pad and plate system that is more consistent, lighter and runs truer than the stock slipper design. The plates are hard anodized aluminum with vent holes, which reduces heat and improves slipper consistency. Pro-Line’s 86t Spur Gear is extra wide for durability and is not offset like the stock spur gear. No more wobbly spur gears! The clear hard plastic gear cover has a removable rubber cap for easy access to adjust the tension on the slipper system. Adjustments can be made with the same 7mm tool that you use to remove wheel nuts.
Lightweight Transmission and Gears
Pro-Line’s new Performance Transmission has 20% less rotating mass and is over 20% lighter overall than the stock transmission. This allows quicker acceleration, less work for the motor and faster lap times. The bottom diff case gear and idler gear are made out of super durable and lightweight high impact plastic, while the top gear is super strong steel.
3mm Thick Aluminum Motor Plate, Full Ball Bearings, & Other Awesome Features
There are so many other awesome features that make Pro-Line’s Performance Transmission a must have. The motor mounts to 3mm thick Aluminum Motor Plate with cooling fins and a machined P-L logo, all of which acts as a huge heat sink to keep your motor running cool. High quality Ball Bearings are used throughout the transmission and the differential spins on huge 10mm x 16mm x 5mm Ball Bearings for incredible load capability. The toe block is molded separate from the transmission case allowing for quicker and easier access to the transmission when tuning the differential oil. The separate toe block also opens up the possibility for different tuning blocks (Toe Angle and Anti-Squat) to be used at some point in the future. The hardened steel outdrive shafts will accept the stock axles, as well as any aftermarket CVD’s or drive shafts that you might have for your vehicle.

So after getting the trans on and running it two times all of the plastic. yes plastic internal gears have stripped. I have called and talked to proline and there have been issues with the gears. Proline customer service is great and they have replaced the parts. Problem is the parts themselves. I believe the upgraded idler gear will with stand some abuse as its metal now, however the diff case is still plastic. Everything else is awesome about the trans except the internal gears. Replace with a Hot Racing (Part #TE38Pro) steel idler gear and aluminum diff case with hardened gear. this diff is freakin awesome, only on ebay though. Guy had fast shipping and it was only 35 bucks. Definitely worth the price for headache free difff.
Put this on a new Proline pro-2 chassis and it fits wonderfully. One big problem: if you want to put an aftermarket bumper like an RPM( .... or any bumper from the looks of it) on this transmission be prepared to shim and have a bear of a time mounting it centered. Luckily there's a set of screws that come in the trans kit that helped a bit in this problem. I used a couple of plastic 1/8th suspension alignment (like associated part ASC9273) to line the bumper up on center and used the ultra long screws to screw the RPM bumper to the Proline plate. Will see how many hits it lasts as I liked the look of a bumper on the truck. Proline should definitely try to get a mount setup option available. Side note: Proline customer service is fantastic. The trans I received did not have the rear arm mount plate in the package. Called up same day and they shipped out for free within the week. Awesome service!)
