TRAXXAS 2008 E-Maxx
E-Maxx fans, your wait for a new Traxxas battery blaster is over! The new E-Maxx is built
on a whole new chassis, and the chassis configuration and drivetrain are optimized for
brushless power. The transmission is an all-new design that uses extra wide steel gears and
a Revo-spec slipper clutch. Other Revo touches include bellows-sealed pivot-ball suspension, true curvilinear telescoping driveshafts, and sealed diffs. To improve handling the chassis has been lengthened
30mm and the batteries angle in and down towards the truck’s centerline. The new E-Maxx is also ready
to take on the roughest terrain you can find–including water. The high-torque servos are waterproof and
the receiver sits in its own sealed box, so you can blast through mud and puddles without fear.
