Traxxas Adds Monster Mutt And Maximum Destruction Models To Monster Jam Lineup

Feb 09, 2011 1 Comment by

Traxxas, the Official Hobby Class Radio Control Truck of Monster Jam, is proud to announce the release of two additional exciting Monster Jam models: the Monster Mutt™, and the Maximum Destruction™! Fully assembled and Ready-to-Race®, the 1/10 scale Monster Mutt and Maximum Destruction models feature pre-applied decals with officially licensed graphics to precisely duplicate the full-size monster machines. New tires developed specifically for the Monster Jam models emulate the “hand carved” look of the full-size treads, and new deep-dish wheels with bead-lock detailing complete the aggressive, authentic look.

Crushing cars, catching big air, and popping wheelies has never been this much fun, and Traxxas’ new Monster Jam models make the action more realistic than ever. When it comes to speed, the Titan 12-turn 550 modified motor and racing-style Magnum 272™ transmission propel the Monster Mutt and Maximum Destruction to speeds over 30mph*. The integrated cooling fan in the Titan 12T pulls air through the motor keeping it cool. Airflow is routed through cooling channels molded into the motor plate. A cooler running motor delivers faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life.

Sealed Electronics Extend Your Driving Fun

Traxxas shocked enthusiasts with the release of our exclusive watertight, sealed electronics that provide the freedom to drive where you want to drive through water, mud, snow, and other wet-running conditions that wouldn’t have been possible before. The Monster Jam models’ XL-5 electronic speed control and the mini receiver are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom go places you might not have thought possible. It opens up a whole new world of adventure and fun.­

To harness the power of the 12-turn motor, Traxxas bolted in the high-performance, waterproof XL-5 electronic speed control. Ultra-smooth, high-frequency operation and high-power handing capability, are standard features. EZ-Set® one-button setup makes it easy to adjust or change profiles. Traxxas’ exclusive Training Mode™ profile cuts total power output in half and leaves the brakes at full strength. It’s the first controller of its kind that has a 50% power profile. Training Mode is designed for young or first time drivers that want to learn the ropes before unleashing the full power of the mighty Titan 12T motor. This makes the Monster Mutt and Maximum Destruction perfect for almost any age driver or skill level.

The quest for ultimate speed began with the battery connector. As today’s batteries store more and more energy inside their cells, traditional battery connectors became a roadblock, unable to deliver all the energy the battery is capable of outputting. The new Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for unrestricted current flow.­

The new Monster Jam models come fully loaded with innovative performance options like a fiber-composite chassis designed for exceptional rigidity and enormous ground clearance. Battery removal is made easy by the quick-release battery hold down latch. In addition, the factory-installed planetary differential never needs adjusting! Just take the truck out of the box, charge up a battery, and go have fun! If you’re looking for an all-terrain truck that is perfect for monster bashing or wheelie-popping thrills, look no further.
