Traxxas T-Maxx 2.5 Review &
Buying Tips

Review and Buyer's Guide: The 1/10 scale T-Maxx 2.5 (RTR) is a fast monster truck with a powerful TRX 2.5 gas/nitro engine. This remote controlled truck has a top speed of over 40 mph, definitely one of the fastest among ready-to-run monster trucks (MT).

“The T-Maxx consistently launched itself like a caged animal with its front wheels raised, and it accelerated at an impressive rate. The high-revving engine and tall gearing got it to the finish line first every time.”
- R/C Nitro Magazine, April 2003

T-Maxx Review

The Traxxas T-Maxx exploded the hobby of gas powered rc monster trucks. It was probably the first 1/10 scale 4x4 gas powered rc truck to exceed the 40 miles per hour barrier. The heart of the T-Maxx is the award winning TRX 2.5 racing engine producing over 1.3 horsepower!

The TRX 2.5 racing engine is the 2003 Readers' Choice Award for Best Nitro Engine of R/C Car Action Magazine.

"The TRX 2.5 blows away every other small-block engine we tested!" - RC Nitro Magazine, April 2003

“The incredible TRX 2.5 engine...pumps out enough power to shame many "sport" big-block engines. The R/C Nitro dyno-test confirmed more than 1hp (1.33 to be exact) from the mighty mill, and it has no trouble pushing the T-Maxx past 40mph - and that's with electric starting!"- R/C Car Action Magazine, September 2003

“The TRX 2.5 T-Maxx manual deserves recognition for being the best in the industry. The term 'manual' doesn't really do it justice; it's more like a 'getting started in nitro' book!” - R/C Car Action Magazine, September 2003

The T-Maxx is 2003 Truck of the Year. The TRX 2.5 is 2003 Engine of the Year.

And if that is not enough, how about a 2-speed transmission (w/ forward and reverse), full ball bearings, disc brakes, 8 oil filled shock absorbers, pre-painted rc truck body and rubber racing truck tires.

The TMaxx is simply a must have. Imaging blasting through dirt tracks at 40+ mph and flying 10 feet in the air over large jumps.

And best of all, it is a ready-to-run model, perfectly packaged for newcomers and experience modelers.
