Maxx Slash punches harder and faster with brutal 6s power and 70+mph speed. Low center of gravity and new belted tires keep it all in control.

Being big is good. Being the perfect size for maximum performance is best. Maxx Slash is the perfect size to power aggressively over the roughest terrain imaginable, yet it is still feels light, responsive, and agile.

The Maxx platform has already proven it’s synonymous with durability. The engineering on Maxx Slash continues to innovate, adding even more strength for critical 6s power handling and faster, harder-hitting action.

Maxx SC belted tires limit high-speed tire expansion for a larger, flatter contact patch and game-changing precision and control. Tyre uniformity is critical for stability, especially at the top of its 70+ mph speed range.
