Introducing the all new Traxxas 1/10 HOSS 4x4 VXL Brushless Monster Truck!

The all-new 1:10 Scale Hoss 4X4 VXL unleashes extreme monster truck fun with the power and speed only Traxxas can deliver. Grab a fistful of throttle and the huge Velineon 540XL motor delivers a massive torque punch to wheelie on command, and then keeps pouring on the thrust for a 60+ MPH top speed. The Torque Biasing Center Drive and heavy-duty shaft-driven 4WD system transfers maximum power to the ultra-aggressive Sledgehammer™ tires. It’s built to absolutely shred any terrain, from dirt and sand to mud and snow. Pitch Hoss hard and fast into a turn and Traxxas Stability Management goes to work behind the scenes to help keep you solidly on track while you’re blazing new trails. Non-stop fun and performance always come first, so Hoss stays true to the Traxxas heritage of rugged strength and durability which is engineered into every component. Drive harder, go faster, hang tougher— Nothing stops the Hoss!

Check out the Traxxas Hoss 4x4 VXL RC Monster Truck doing what it does best!

Hoss 4x4 VXL Unique Features:

Traxxas Stability Management

Traxxas Stability Management (also referred to as TSM) is included in Traxxas' latest receivers. It incorporates an advanced gyro system that detects when the tyre' loses traction beyond the control of the user and instantly corrects it to keep you on course. 

Extreme Sledgehammer Grip

The Hoss VXL 4X4 relies on huge Sledgehammer tires to put its massive torque to the ground. The 5.3-inch tall Sledgehammers lift the Hoss skyward for superior ground clearance and a menacing stance. The open-block tread design clears away mud and debris for unrivaled traction on loose surfaces. Sledgehammer tires come pre-glued with performance foam inserts and they’re TSM-rated for speeds of 60mph and beyond!

540XL Torque

For those who believe “there’s no replacement for displacement,” Traxxas has built a monster truck for you. The new Hoss 4X4 VXL packs the same Velineon 540XL brushless motor found in the Maxx extreme monster truck. It’s the largest motor we’ve ever offered in a truck this size. The Velineon VXL-3s speed control rolls out the power smoothly utilizing large 6.5 mm connectors and an integrated cooling fan for fast, reliable fun.

Rock-Solid Drivetrain

A conventional 4-wheel drive system may work for your average RC truck, but average isn’t in the Traxxas vocabulary. We pored over every inch of the Hoss’ drivetrain, strengthening critical areas to handle the 540XL’s immense power. A Torque-Biasing Center Drive outfitted with a steel spur gear replaces a traditional slipper clutch along with a tough aluminum center driveshaft and beefed-up extreme-duty axles. The resulting Hoss drivetrain is a model of both efficiency and brute strength.
