Here’s How the Traxxas X-Maxx Flips Itself Back Over [VIDEO]

The new Traxxas X-Maxx can turn itself over if you flip it–but how? The Traxxas Stability Management system detects when the truck is upside-down and enables the self-righting system. To activate it, hold the transmitter’s SET button. The X-Maxx will automatically alternate between forward and reverse throttle to rock the truck back and forth until it flips back over—three or four cycles usually does the trick.

Click to see it in action in the clips below, it’s pretty cool. Remember, all the throttle action is automatic when you hit the SET button, that’s not a driver pumping the trigger.
