Innovation Insightful engineering and precise integration of innovative solutions set X-Maxx in an all-new category of superior performance. ItÕs as satisfying and rewarding to use as it is fun and exciting to drive.
At the end of the day, size always wins. X-Maxx plows over obstacles and muscles through extreme terrain that leaves lesser trucks stranded. Mammoth 8-inch tall tyres, long-arm suspension, and huge ground clearance dwarf the surroundings for virtually unstoppable monster truck fun.
At Traxxas, too much power is never enough! The durability of the new VXL-8s is matched only by the sheer ferocity of its 8s 30+ volt dual LiPo muscle. The speed-tuned 1200XL Big Blockª motor propels X-Maxx with brutal authority and exacting quickness that warps your senses. No matter what you have driven in the past, nothing will prepare you for X-Maxx.
X-Maxx puts the power to the ground through tough all-steel drivetrain gears, the revolutionary Cush Drive system, and our strongest driveshafts ever. The all-new Torque-Biasing Center Drive improves driveline durability and drives larger module ring and pinion gears on the toughest differentials we have ever produced.
Traxxas engineers reimagined every aspect of the X-Maxx to make it the worldÕs toughest, hardest charging, Ready-To-Drive¨ monster truck. The modular design makes maintenance a breeze and adds strength where itÕs needed most. X-Maxx gets you off the workbench and out having fun because thatÕs what itÕs all about.
The new VXL-8s speed control is an all-new Traxxas design that incorporates advanced microprocessor control with sophisticated software for smooth responsive performance and a rich feature set. The VXL-8s delivers real-time telemetry to the Traxxas Link app with the optional TQi Wireless Module (part #6511, sold separately). The all-new Velineon 1200XL Big Blockª brushless motor puts out blistering 50+mph speed and massive stump-pulling torque.
Integrated Wheelie Bar
A wheelie bar is mandatory equipment for X-MaxxÕs staggering acceleration. The wheelie bar helps prevent backflips under full-throttle acceleration and flexes to absorb impacts on less-than-perfect landings. Best of all, it features a convenient handle to transport X-Maxx to your next adventure.
TQI Radio System
The fully-featured Traxxas TQi 2.4GHz radio system delivers superior speed, precision, and control. It is Traxxas Link enabled so you can add a module (part #6511, sold separately) and connect wirelessly to the Traxxas Link app using your smart phone. The Traxxas Link app allows you to adjust your settings and view real time telemetry.
Traxxas Stability Management TSM¨ works behind the scenes to help harness X-MaxxÕs brutal power for maximum acceleration and ultimate control. Adjust the amount of assistance from off to 100% right from your transmitter.
X-MaxxÕs rugged and direct driveline reduces rotational mass and delivers superior durability. The driveline lies completely shielded inside the chassis for worry-free running, safe from rocks and other debris
Toque Biasing Center Drive
The cast alloy Torque-Biasing Center Drive improves driveline durability and controls front-to-rear power distribution for absolutely mind-bending four-wheel drive acceleration. ItÕs tuned to allow instant, wheels-up punch off the line and seamless, virtually invisible operation at speed.
Pioneered by X-Maxx, this patent-pending Traxxas innovation flips the X-Maxx back onto its wheels after a roll over. In most situations, the fun does not have to stop just to rescue an upside down truck.
Water? Mud? Snow? X-Maxx says, ÒBring it on!Ó Traxxas was first to offer patented innovative waterproofing solutions to extend your fun into environments that were previously off limits to lesser trucks.
Traditional clip and post body mounting solutions would not survive in an X-Maxx world. Instead, X-Maxx uses an innovative body latching system that secures the body firmly and easily.
New Body Reinforcement
With intense 8s power, X-Maxx will spend a lot of time reared-up on two wheels. Body reinforcement has been added where it is needed most for extra protection during rollovers or when self-righting.
Easy Battery Access
Traxxas engineers paid special attention to make sure the touch points on X-Maxx are easy to use. The snap-lock battery retainers are integrated into the chassis and keep a firm, secure grip on the batteries. A conventional pin or latch system would have been out of place on something as radical as the X-Maxx.
4S LiPo Batteries and EZ-Pack Charger
For 50+mph tyre-scorching 30+volt power, Traxxas developed new 4-cell 6700mAh iD LiPo battery packs and the new 4s capable EZ-Peak Live multi-chemistry charger.
Modular Chassis Design
The interlocking modular chassis design keeps the motor and the gear drive together as a unit to virtually eliminate gear-crunching chassis flex. Plus, the design provides easy access to critical components, making any needed maintenance or repairs a snap to perform.
New 8s-Rated Tyres
The wheels and tyres are massive and so is the grip from the hyper-aggressive all-terrain tread. Traxxas specially-engineered a new tyre compound and mounting system to cope with X-Maxx's ferocious speed. Full-throttle tyre-squealing acceleration is more fun than ever without the worry of ripping a tyre off the bead. Our engineers overlooked nothing to ensure X-Maxx delivers the bulletproof durability you expect from a Traxxas truck.
GTX Aluminium Shocks
X-Maxx's four enormous high-performance oil-filled GTX aluminium shocks smooth out the roughest terrain for the super-plush ride that made Maxx trucks famous. The large oil volume dissipates heat for all-day shredding while an integrated wiper seal keeps the shafts clean, reducing seal wear for long life.
Shock Tower Design
X-Maxx's shock towers introduce an exclusive Traxxas look that offers rigid, triangulated structure and an authentic off-road look that fills in the wheel openings of the truck. They also serve as a convenient carry handles and provide level supports for the X-Maxx when placed upside down for cleaning.
Rock-Solid Motor Mount with Dual Cooling Fans
The all-new motor mount design cradles the motor so it canÕt flex on the mount. Gear mesh is held firmly in place by keyed pins so thereÕs no need for tricky adjustments. Eliminating flex means longer gear life, even in the most punishing conditions. The new dual-fan assembly helps cool the motor for extended run times and maximum fun.
Achieving X-Maxx's huge suspension travel, tight turning circle, and incredible strength required hundreds of hours of modeling, development, and testing to package all of that capability in these sophisticated components. Exciting visual form follows unsurpassed function and performance.
Waterproof From the Start
Waterproofing our models has never been an afterthought at Traxxas. Patented Traxxas innovation seals out the water so that your playground doesnÕt end when the fun involves water, snow, and mud. Dirty truck? Just hose it off. The new style box allows fast radio access without removal.
Double Shear Connections
X-Maxx uses double shear connections when the mission requires incredible strength. Suspension hinge points, shock mounting, and even the steering servo output shaft are engineered to redefine Traxxas Tough. Captured, high-strength steel suspension pins are used throughout and will never unscrew or Òback outÓ.
A new servo was created to deliver the strength and the torque necessary to give X-Maxx unmatched steering authority. The quick steering and tight turning circle, combined with advanced suspension geometry, gives X-Maxx nimbleness and control that you might not expect from such a large vehicle.
X-Maxx is equipped with new energy-absorbing impact cushions behind the front and rear bumpers to help soften the blows and make X-Maxx even more durable in demanding situationsÑeven the unexpected ones.
New CV Driveshafts
Traxxas armed the X-Maxx with our strongest driveshafts to harness the twisting power of the motorÕs extreme torque. This rugged design maximizes suspension travel, steering angles, and overall durability. The differential outputs are splined for incredible strength, and they center bolt to the differential for easy cleaning and service. Splined wheel hexes eliminate axle pins that require through holes that create a weak point in shafts.
Shock-Absorbing Cush Drive
Conventional slipper clutches could not withstand the monster torque loads of the 8s X-Maxx. Instead, our engineers adapted the revolutionary Cush Drive system from the 100mph XO-1 Supercar and strengthened it with a steel spur gear. Instead of slipping, the Cush Drive sends pure uninterrupted power straight to the Torque-Biasing Center Drive for unimaginable acceleration.
Aluminium Splined Driveshaft
The tough aluminium center driveshaft carries the power to the front and rear differentials. Splined drives are used throughout for precise engagement, incredible strength, and smooth running.
New Maxx-Duty Sealed Diffs
The new X-Maxx differentials feature our largest module steel ring and pinion gears ever to handle the rigors of challenging off-road situations. The differentials are sealed and filled with heavyweight oil, which gives the feel of limited-slip differentials. What the driver feels is confidence as the X-Maxx power slides through turns with massive roost and total control.
Full Contact Sealed Bearings
X-Maxx features full contact sealed bearings in outboard locations to keep out the grime and grit. Less downtime for cleaning and maintaining bearings equals more run time for X-Maxx.
Torque-Biasing Center Drive
The all new Torque-Biasing Center Drive absorbs shocks to improve driveline durability. The Center Drive also distributes power to all four wheels for mind-bending four-wheel drive acceleration without the side effects of a typical center differential. Center differentials allow tyres in the air to balloon uncontrollably, while the Torque-Biasing Center Drive allows wheelies off the line with seamless power distributed to all four wheels.
New Wheels and Maxx tyres
Maxx tyres features a unique tread pattern with multiple layers of biting edges for sure-footed traction on just about any surface. The heavy duty rubber compound is specially formulated to resist tearing and bonds exceptionally well with TraxxasÕ Ultra Premium tyre glue. The 2.8Ó wheels have a large glue surface for bead mounting and utilize a 17mm hex mounting pattern with a flanged locknut.
