The Number-One Selling
R/C Monster Truck of All Time!
2.5 Racing Engine
"The TRX 2.5 blows away every other small block engine we’ve ever tested!"
--R/C Nitro Magazine
“Best Nitro Engine” --RC Car Action Magazine Readers’ Choice Award
The TRX 2.5 Racing Engine is nothing short of amazing. It comes loaded with all
the hottest performance goodies. The two-needle composite slide carburetor,
trick porting, and free-flowing rear exhaust deliver unmatched, class-leading
horsepower that rips huge wheelies and pushes the T-Maxx past 40mph! Plus only
the TRX 2.5 has the push-button starting convenience of the EZ-Start® Electric
Air Intake System
The TRX 2.5 Racing Engine uses a high-volume air intake system with a two-stage
air filter. The filter housing and neck are designed to mate seamlessly with the
carburetor to eliminate turbulence in the air-flow going into the engine.
Call it a factory 'works' pipe. The header and pipe length and shape are dyno-tuned
for the TRX 2.5 to bring out the most power over the broadest RPM range. All
that means is you can nail the throttle hard at any speed and get some serious
Electric Starting System
The Traxxas EZ-Start consists of an onboard drive unit that lights the glow plug
and spins the engine for easy push-button starting from the handheld control
module. The controller contains diagnostic LEDs that provide real-time status of
the glow plug and starter motor. It tells you if the glow plug is bad and
protects the starter motor from overloading. The EZ-Start system is powered by a
standard rechargeable 7.2 volt battery pack. Once you’ve used the EZ-Start
system, you may never go back to pull-starters again!
T-Maxx’s fully enclosed transmission features two-speeds forward and two-speeds
reverse with a speed-sensitive reverse lockout. It provides racing-truck
acceleration in low gear and 40+mph top speeds in high gear. Shifting is hard,
fast, and automatic with an adjustable shift point! Just push a button on the
TQ-3 transmitter to shift into reverse. Only the patented T-Maxx design allows
full proportional control of throttle and braking, along with two-speed
shifting, in both forward and reverse gears (patent# 6367345).
T-Maxx is equipped with an adjustable slipper clutch to absorb drivetrain shocks
and protect against damage, especially after those 30-foot jumps you just
couldn’t resist. Standard spur gears are used to allow easy changes to the
T-Maxx uses a disc brake mounted forward of the transmission to provide powerful
4-wheel braking action and sure-footed stopping power. A fiberglass-composite
disc and stainless steel pads are used for long life and reliability.
The large diameter slider driveshafts are made to take abuse. With real u-joints
at each end and variable-length sliding half shafts, our driveshafts allow
longer suspension travel, no binding, and less friction than metal 'dog-bone'
shafts. The Traxxas driveshaft material absorbs impacts and stress loads that
break skinny metal drive shafts. It’s a superior, better-engineered solution.
New differential case is strengthened for more precise gear alignment.
Hardened-steel ring and pinion gears have been precisely engineered to deliver
quiet, efficient operation and reliable performance. The integrated planetary
gear differentials also use hardened steel gears for tough, virtually
maintenance-free running. They’re made to take the rigorous off-road pounding
that comes so naturally for a T-Maxx.
A big truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance. The
included Traxxas high-torque servo delivers over 80 in/oz of torque.
The bellcrank steering system provides precise steering geometry for correct
Ackerman and almost no bump steer, even with T-Maxx’s huge suspension travel.
The supplied bellcrank bushings can replaced with ball-bearings for even
smoother steering performance.
Famous Maxx® Suspension
One of the hallmarks of the T-Maxx is its incredible WideMaxx 4-wheel
independent suspension. Wicked long travel, nearly 4 inches at each wheel, is
ready to take on just about the roughest terrain you can imagine. Eight
oil-filled shocks (2 at each wheel) deliver that plush feel and 'bottomless'
suspension travel T-Maxx is famous for. The WideMaxx is fully tuneable for the
track with up to 10 shock-mounting positions, adjustable front caster angle,
front and rear toe, and front and rear camber angles.
Traxxas oil-filled Ultra Shocks are fully tuneable for race-inspired
performance. The spring pre-load is adjustable via precise clip-on spacers
making it easy to know that each shock is adjusted to the same spec. Rubber
pressure bladders prevent air pockets and foaming common with bladderless
designs. Double o-ring seals in the shock body prevent leaking.
The 3.2mm aluminum chassis is formed from durable 6061-T6 aluminum and then
anodized in beautiful blue. Besides forming a rigid backbone for the rest of the
truck, the aluminum acts like a heat sink to draw additional heat away from the
engine. All of the systems and components are neatly arranged on the chassis for
easy cleaning and servicing.
The unique T-Maxx chassis design offers maximum center ground clearance (over 4
inches) to eliminate the high-centering and chassis dragging that plague
flat-chassis monster trucks. Plus it maintains that tall, authentic monster
The new extended wheelbase T-Maxx body comes fully trimmed and painted. Decals
are also applied to save time and get you driving just minutes out of the box.
Traxxas' ProGraphix bodies are the hottest looking bodies around and are only
available on Traxxas Ready-to-Race® models. Available in red, blue, black, and
Now rubber-sealed! Nothing less than the precision of smooth-running ball
bearings is good enough for T-Maxx. Faster performance, less maintenance, and no
need to plan for a costly upgrade are just a few of the benefits.
Wheels and Tires
The wheels are molded from durable nylon and carefully engineered be strong with
the least amount of weight. The monster 5.75"h x 3.5"w tires use foam inserts so
that the tire carcass can be thinner and lighter. The wheels feature a metalized
finish that provides the realistic look of real aluminum without the weight. It
all adds up to lower rotating mass and quicker acceleration.
The T-Maxx isn’t just made of plastic. Its parts are molded from various types
of composite-filled nylon that strike the perfect balance of rigidity and
resistance to breakage. Traxxas has been perfecting the formula for years! We
can’t promise that you’ll never, ever break something, but you can count on the
T-Maxx for superior durability and you’ll be amazed at the kinds of crashes and
daredevil stunts it can withstand.
T-Maxx includes the TQ-3 pistol grip radio system, a precision throttle servo,
and a high-torque digital steering servo. The dedicated channels provide full
control over T-Maxx's throttle/braking, steering, and shifting functions with
the optional two-speed gear set installed. The TQ-3 delivers up to a
quarter-mile range, electronic trim controls, low-battery indicator,
servo-reversing, and the exclusive grip-mounted 3rd channel switch.
