Traxxas Hoss 4x4 VXL - A hard-charging 3S Monster Truck
The Hoss 4x4 VXL is a fast monster truck, ready to blast off with a wheelie with a quick squeeze of your trigger finger. As a true Monster Truck the Hoss can handle everything - rough terrain, speed runs on tarmac, or catching some serious air in the skate park. With 70mm ground clearance, fat 5.3" Sledgehammer tires, 3S LiPo power and an efficient 4x4 system the Hoss is ready for everything!
The monster truck comes with all the quality gear you'd expect from a Traxxas VXL - like the TQi 2.4 Ghz transmitter, Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) system which helps you stay in control at full speed, and the Traxxas Self-Righting system, which lets the car get back on its wheels by itself, should it take a tumble and land on its roof. The wheelie bar is standard as well - trust us, you'll need it!
But not only that, with the Hoss, Traxxas is adding a ton of the design solutions and upgrades used in the bigger models: The power comes from the Velineon 540XL motor used in the bigger Maxx, and the VXL-3S ESC now comes with a fan to aid with keeping the electronics cool. The wheelbase is longer to improve stability and the honeycomb structure of the chassis makes it more rigid. To protect the car is uses an internal cage to support the body, has reinforced, high-approach front and rear bumpers, nerf bars for side protection and roof and tailgate skids.
The 4x4 system also contains a few surprises - instead of the usual slipper clutch, the Hoss uses a Torque-Biasing Center Drive with a steel spur gear, heavy-duty axles and an aluminium center driveshaft. Power is sent to the ground through the 5.3" Sledgehammer tires and should you take a tumble, the patented Traxxas Self-Righting feature will allow the car to get back on its wheels by its own in most cases. Simply click a button on the TQi controller and it's back on its wheels in seconds!
