Products

T-Maxx

The T-Maxx is a monster truck model successful enough to add an entire category of formalized racing to the industry. Previously there was no monster truck class of radio control racing. [Radio Operated Auto Racing|ROAR], the leading sanctioner of racing in the USA, is creating an entirely new class to include the monster trucks, mostly due the popularity of the T-Maxx.

The design of the T-Maxx, like many other hobby class models, has been revised since it introduction. The first revision lenghened the suspension arms and added a more powerful motor, thus becoming the T-Maxx 2.5. Further revisions received their own names, but were essentially the same truck.

The Sport Maxx model omitted the differential and drivetrain to the front wheels. The reverse capability was also left out. The S-Maxx (or Stadium Maxx) was essentially the same as the Sport Maxx, but it came with a different body shell, more race oriented tires and a two speed transmission.

In 2005, Traxxas began sponsorship of a full-size T-Maxx monster truck to promote the radio controlled version.

E-Maxx

The E-Maxx is the electric brother to the T-Maxx. It shares the same suspension and differential parts as the T-Maxx, but is better suited to rock crawling and low-noise areas. The E-Maxx runs on two 7.2 volt battery packs, using a total of 14.4 volts to run the system.

Revo

The Revo is a monster truck with a more recent design than the T-Maxx. Notable changes include the shock system, a complex aluminum chassis, and the addition of an electronically controlled reverse.

Jato

The Jato is Traxxas' newest nitro model based on the rear wheel drive stadium truck format popular in the industry. Features that make it stand out from others include the "EZ Start" system, an automatic two speed gearbox, larger than standard wheels and tires, a 55 mph top speed, and class leading suspension travel. The Jato, as it comes out of the box, is not legal to race alongside more traditional stadium trucks in industry sanctioned events, but many local clubs allow it.

EZ Start

Traxxas brought onboard electric starting systems into widespread use for nitro fuel powered models. Most of their nitro powered models carry this "EZ Start" system. It consists of a small electric motor and a wiring harness to start the two-stroke nitro engine in a way similar to full size automobiles. The starter battery is kept separate from the model in a wand-like device. When plug on the wand is inserted into the vehicle's receiver, the user presses the button on the wand, and the electric motor spins the engine until ignition, or until the battery drains.

Customizing

Traxxas is a top retailer in the hobby level radio control market. Their sturdy designs, while not always well-suited for racing, make many customizations and modifications possible. The E-Maxx has been used as a base chassis by the US Troops in post-invasion Iraq as a bomb scout [1]. Ultimate Traxxas describes the complete customization of many of Traxxas' land models.
