The Traxxas Maxx 1/10 Brushless RTR 4WD Monster Truck is the next evolution of the popular X-Maxx basher, now scaled down and expertly packaged into a lighter lighter, more compact 1/10 scale model. Despite being smaller in size, this model sacrifices nothing when it comes to power and durability.
THE MAXX® EXPERIENCE Extreme power. Extreme durability. Extreme fun! This is the foundation that the Maxx Experience is built upon. With a new Maxx platform that is smaller and lighter, Traxxas engineers took the speed to 60+ mph, tuned it for even higher performance, and doubled-down on strength and durability. Maxx is once again reshaping monster truck fun and excitement.
60+ MPH MAXX® MUSCLE Traxxas Velineon brushless power hits hard with massive 4s punch and effortless wheelies on demand. Maxx feels like an unstoppable force of nature as top speeds reach an awe-inspiring 60+ mph.** Advanced 32-bit microprocessor-control constantly monitors the output for efficient, long-running performance. The high-output 540XL motor features a beefy, 5mm shaft, aluminum heat sink, and a powerful fan. Of course it’s all fully protected with Traxxas’ innovative waterproofing.
TRAXXAS TOUGH Maxx is engineered to withstand extreme punishment and intense driving action. Impact absorbing suspension arms soak up the hits with ease. The heavy-duty driveline components have been proven in vehicles larger and heavier than Maxx, so there is plenty of strength to spare. The Maxx chassis absorbs and dissipates impact energy across the entire structure. Huge threaded-aluminum GT-Maxx shocks with large diameter shafts manage suspension damping. Maxx invites you to explore new ways to drive hard and have fun!

Ive jumped this thing and rolled it so many times. Its a tank. Ive only ran it on 3s and its plenty of power to jump but if you wanna back flip you want to go to 4s.
Three things to fix((besides the shocks)before you have issue are:
1:The fans are prone to break, the whole fan will come out of the fan's housing (like the blades and shaft)and hit the top of the fan casing breaking your blades. Really easy to fix just need a 2mm hex screw and 5.5mm box nut. Drill a hole in the middle of each fan casings(in the top) put the box nut inside the housing and it wont let the fan come out far enough to break blades!
2: The rear differential cover comes loose.. and only gets worse over time after jumping cause it hits the ground constantly. I put a dab of super glue on each screw for the cover and it works perfect. screws dont get stuck and they are still able to be tightened and dont loosen up!!
3:The top cover for the gears is prone to letting sand and fine dirt in. you need to seal it up with grease. be sure to get where the motor mount meets the cover.
Purchased two of these Monster Trucks. One for my self and another for a gift. We love these trucks but we found all the weak spots on the first run. If you purchase this car, also order replacement or upgrade axles. Also check for loose screws. They will break. Other then that, they are quite enjoyable.
Delivery was fast and arrived with no damage to box and item. I was anxious to start playing. Using 3s battery imfoundmitmto be pretty fast, fast enough for me to get used to. I’ll purchase 4s in the near future once I’m used to the Maxx. I love the color scheme and the Maxx feels strong and beefy. Haven’t done any big jumps yet, but that’s coming soon.
Just got this thing from Hobby Town in Omaha NE and had it out one time. I was driving it slowly in training mode to get used to it and crashed it once. I noticed it wasn’t sitting level and upon closer inspection the left a-arm pivot pin had popped out and another part was misaligned. I took it home and stared digging in. I found that the entire front differential housing had broken in half, the pivot pin was bent, and another part was cracked! All from a low speed crash! I had to order these part direct from traxxas at a cost of $27.00, on top of the almost $560 price I paid for it just a few days ago, holy crap! And now I have to wait to drive this truck until I get the parts. I bought this truck because all the reviews said it was durable, unfortunately it is not durable at all.
