Any Monster Truck fans out there? Well I’ve got something you may like…info on Traxxas’ line of Monster Jam Replica RC Trucks!
If you don’t know what Monster Jam is, it is awesome demolition-style monster truck action!! I’m talking about 4-ton trucks defying gravity and crushing buses and cars beneath them. If you are a fan of real monster trucks and the Monster Jam as well as an RC enthusiast, you probably like RC Monster Trucks as well.
The newest models to the line are the Captain’s Curse®, Monster Mutt® and Maximum Destruction®! They join the legendary Grave Digger® and the Advance Auto Parts Grinder™ in Traxxas’ exclusive line of officially licensed Monster Jam models, each fully assembled and Ready-to-Race®. Grave Digger even includes custom molded green ladder bars and bumpers to capture the menacing look of Monster Jam’s fiercest competitor, and Monster Mutt roars into action with ears and tongue, just like the full-size fan favorite. New tires developed specifically for the Monster Jam models emulate the “hand carved” look of the full-size treads, and new deep-dish wheels with bead-lock detailing complete the aggressive, authentic look.
I just think these are so cool. I’ve always loved watching Monster Jam on TV and seeing the truck crushing the small cars like they were toys. When it comes to speed, the Titan 12-turn 550 modified motor and racing-style Magnum 272™ transmission propel the Grave Digger and Grinder to speeds over 30mph with the right setup – 7-cell battery and included, optional 23-tooth pinion gear.. The integrated cooling fan in the Titan 12T pulls air through the motor keeping it cool. Airflow is routed through cooling channels molded into the motor plate. A cooler running motor delivers faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life.
These vehicles come with Traxxas’ exclusive watertight, sealed electronics that provide the freedom to drive where you want. The new Monster Jam models come fully loaded with innovative performance options like a fiber-composite chassis designed for exceptional rigidity and enormous ground clearance.
