Strengthened Bulkheads with Steel X-Braces
Tough composite components and steel reinforced bulkheads maximize T-Maxx 3.3 durability for hardcore bashing. The front and rear bulkheads are strength-optimized for ruggedness and dependability when the going gets rough. Traxxas engineers reinforced critical areas to further enhance the legendary toughness that T-Maxx is famous for.
30mm Extended Chassis
With the incredible horsepower of the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine on tap, Traxxas engineers equipped the New T-Maxx 3.3 with a 30mm longer wheelbase for maximum stability. The 4mm thick aluminum chassis is formed from durable 6061-T6 aluminum and then anodized in brilliant blue. Besides forming a rigid backbone for the rest of the truck, the aluminum acts like a heat sink to draw additional heat away from the engine. All of the systems and components are neatly arranged on the chassis for easy cleaning and servicing.
Heavy-Duty Chassis Braces and Transmission Skid Plate
The long wheelbase T-Maxx 3.3 chassis combines heady-duty extended chassis braces and an integrated transmission skid plate to form a fully-boxed sub-frame that protects the center driveline and virtually eliminates power robbing chassis flex.

An included Traxxas digital high-torque, ball bearing steering servo comes standard for precision control, quick response, and unmatched torque. It has over 50% more torque than a standard high-torque servo and it's 25% faster! That's 125 oz-in torque with 0.16-second transit speed!
Tall 6.3" Maxx®-Sized Tires on 3.8"
Mirror-Chrome Hurricane™ Wheels
Pre-glued to 3.8" Mirror-Chrome Hurricane wheels, the soft compound Maxx tires are designed to maximize performance for all-terrain traction. On dirt the aggressive treads claw for traction providing superior bite and massive roosts, and on pavement the forgiving side grip allows the tire to power-slide while maintaining a sure-footed neutral feel.
Revo®-Spec Auto shifting Two-Speed Transmission
The heavy-duty forward-only two-speed is easy to adjust and delivers smooth and consistent shifts every time. A simple twist of a 2.0mm hex wrench and the shift point can be adjusted to shift earlier or later. To further the custom tuning experience, special close and standard ratio gear sets can be installed to tailor the gearing for your environment.
Revo®-Spec Torque-Control™ Slipper Clutch
The Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction material and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent traction control. The semi-metallic friction material remains stable across a wide temperature range to provide smooth, linear engagement you can count on, tank after tank. Spur gears can be removed and replaced without altering the slipper adjustment. A center ball bearing maintains precise, long-lasting alignment with near friction-free running and virtually zero maintenance. Only Traxxas has it!
Large Diameter Disc Brake
A large 42mm steel rotor spins between two unique semi-metallic brake pads which when engaged, bind the drilled steel disc for efficient 4 wheel braking action. The proven design provides fast fade free braking to bring T-Maxx 3.3 to a stop almost as quickly as it accelerates.
Building on the durability of the reliable and incredibly tough Revo drivetrain, T-Maxx 3.3 incorporates super-duty center, front, and rear driveshafts. The super-duty sealed driveshafts are rubber sealed to keep out dirt for consistently smooth performance. The true, constant velocity U-joint design allows huge deflection angles and there is no metal-to-metal friction to cause binding and wear.
Sealed Pivot Ball Suspension
Traxxas exclusive rubber sealed pivot balls maintain factory smooth performance even in the harshest environments. The unique design allows easy adjustment, proven performance, and unmatched reliability. The heavy-duty axle carriers use large diameter rubber sealed bearings for ultra-smooth, and practically maintenance-free running.
The unique T-Maxx chassis design offers maximum center ground clearance (over 4 inches) to eliminate the high-centering and chassis dragging that plague flat-chassis monster trucks. Plus it maintains that tall, authentic monster truck look.
Famous Maxx® Suspension
One of the hallmarks of the T-Maxx is its incredible WideMaxx 4-wheel independent suspension. Wicked long travel, nearly 4 inches at each wheel, is ready to take on just about the roughest terrain you can imagine. Eight oil-filled shocks (2 at each wheel) deliver that plush feel and 'bottomless' suspension travel T-Maxx is famous for. The suspension is fully tuneable for the track with up to 10 shock-mounting positions, adjustable front caster angle, front and rear toe, and front and rear camber angles.
Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks™
Traxxas oil-filled Ultra Shocks are fully tuneable for race-inspired performance. The spring pre-load is adjustable via precise clip-on spacers making it easy to know that each shock is adjusted to the same spec. Rubber pressure bladders prevent air pockets and foaming common with bladderless designs. Double o-ring seals in the shock body prevent leaking.
Adjustable Wheelie Bar
To handle extreme Maxx power, the adjustable Traxxas wheelie bar is mandatory equipment for the Extreme TRX® 3.3 horsepower! The wheelie bar has 4 snap-in adjustment positions that allow you to choose how extreme you want your action to be. In the down position, it keeps the front end of your Maxx truck planted to show off the incredible acceleration. Raise the wheelie bar to its full-up position and the action gets wild, with giant wheelies that hang on as long as you keep mashing the throttle! The unique design allows it to be easily removed in situations where you may not want the additional control.
Maxx-Sized ProGraphix® Body
The new extended wheelbase T-Maxx body comes fully trimmed and painted. Decals are also applied to save time and get you driving just minutes out of the box. Traxxas' ProGraphix bodies are the hottest looking bodies around and are only available on Traxxas Ready-to-Race® models. Available in red, blue, black, and white.
Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings
Precision rubber-sealed bearings offer the ultimate in super low-friction performance and maximum protection in dirt and nitro environments. They are used in all exposed locations on the truck and are virtually maintenance free.
