With 30+ volts of extreme 8s power, X-Maxx defies physics, unleashing jaw-dropping acceleration and 50+ mph speed. Belted Sledgehammer® tires conquer the most extreme terrain while providing unrivaled high-speed stability. Built to take brutal punishment in stride, X-Maxx is the definition of Traxxas Tough.
Size Wins

Size Wins

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 tires, long-arm suspension, and huge ground clearance dwarf the surroundings for virtually unstoppable monster truck fun.

Extreme Power

Extreme Power

At Traxxas, too much power is never enough! The durability of the VXL-8s is matched only by the sheer ferocity of its 8s 30+ volt LiPo muscle. The speed-tuned 1200XL Big Block 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 Drivetrain

All-Metal Drivetrain

X-Maxx puts its massive power to the ground through an all-metal 8s driveline backed by the revolutionary Cush Drive® system, high-strength extruded aluminum center shaft, and our strongest steel driveshafts ever. The Torque-Biasing Center Drive improves driveline durability and drives huge steel 4-gear differentials.

Belted Sledgehammer Tires

Belted Tires

X-Maxx’s belted Sledgehammer tires deliver game-changing stability and control whether you’re slinging mud or setting speed records. The wide, open-block tread design won’t clog up with dirt or debris and the lightweight belting maintains the tire’s shape for a larger contact patch, more grip, and responsive handling at any speed.


Insightful engineering and precise integration of innovative solutions set X-Maxx in an all-new category of superior performance. It’s as satisfying and rewarding to use as it is fun and exciting to drive.


The full X-Maxx experience of strength, power, and agility relies on all the carefully engineered details that emerge when you peel back the layers.
