Traxxas have just released details on another fast4x4 monster truck called the Hoss. Yes, it looks like the new Maxx truck. It purportedly has a bulletproof drivetrain (like the Maxx) and is capable of 60mph + (like the Maxx) on a 3s battery (the Maxx needs a 4s battery for this)
Unlike the Maxx this seems to be base3d on a beefed up slash 4×4 platform, but with a big 540XL brushless motor which appears notably longer than a standard motor. the “Big Block” motor if you like. Now while on the surface this model seems to be cutting the grass on the Maxx, or even canablilising it’ sales, it is priced at a full $70 USD cheaper than the Maxx, so a more budget friendly (ish) variant.
I am digging the reinforced, and quick connect body, but it’s not exactly a new innovation any more. Stability control etc is becoming expected on these kinds of models now, but it is a welcome addition to the truck. All in all I suppose it’s aimed as a fun, fast, cheaper monster truck since the Maxx is a little more on the expensive side these days.
