Review of the Traxxas E Maxx
22.29 mph (using 6-cells), 30 mph (using 7-cells), 1/10 Electric Monster RC Truck
Quality: 5 stars
Overall rating: 4.5 stars (excellent)
* 5 stars is the highest
There seems to be no other electric rc truck that comes close to the awesome Traxxas E Maxx, except maybe for the Tamiya TXT-1. Even the popular nitro trucks have a hard time comparing to the E Maxx when it comes to acceleration and overall fun.
The E Maxx has so much torque and acceleration that it can pull wheelies from a standing start, and out accelerate and out pull the original T Maxx nitro truck.
And at 10.07 pounds, this monster truck will crush anything in its path.
The emaxx uses two 14 volt 550 size motors wired in parallel. Two 6-cell battery packs provide the 14 volt power supply to the high quality Novak electronic speed controller (forward, braking, reverse). All this power is put to the ground via 4 wheel drive. 1rst gear provides a lot of low end torque for mountain climbing, while 2nd gear pushes the emaxx to speeds of 23 miles per hour. Use 7 cell batteries and the emaxx will do 30 miles per hour (as fast as the original T maxx).
And considering the high quality parts and technology (i.e. 4 wheel drive, 2 speed transmission, ball bearings, 8 oil filled shocks, Novak speed controller, professionally painted body, 3 channel radio control system) all for a street price of $339, this truck is cheap.
Review of the E-Maxx from Radio Control Car Action Magazine:
Instructions - Good
Voted as Radio Control Car Action Truck of the Year 2001!
Review of the E-Maxx from the forum of Traxxas:
I have both. The E is a lot easier to deal
with than the T. Sure, the T has higher top speed but the E has gobs
more torque and can out accelerate and out climb the T any day of the
week. Plus the E is al ot more noobie friendly than nitro. I have had
more fun with my E in the 3 months I have had it than I have had with
the T in the 2 and 1/2 years I've owned it. The only thing I found my T
to excel in was a drag race, but that gets old real quick.
