Traxxas 8S X-Maxx 4WD Is The Most Badass RC Monster Truck Ever Made


RC cars and trucks have come a long way since I was a kid. Take this Traxxas 8S X-Maxx 4WD monster truck for example. Not only does it weigh a whopping 20 lbs, but it can reach top speeds of over 50mph. I repeat, 50mph!!!

Other than its incredible size and speed, the Traxxas 8S X-Maxx possesses the ability to always stay upright, even on sharp turns and quick starts. It can do so because it features the Traxxas Stability Management system, which gives it complete control over almost every terrain. If you have ever flipped your RC truck and had to walk 200 yards to turn it upright again, you know just how nice it is for your vehicle to always stay upright.

It is hard for photos to do this truck justice, but this one definitely shows how the Traxxas stacks up against the competition.


LOL. That isn’t even a fair fight.
