Meet the New Hoss

 

 

Grab a fistful of throttle and the Hoss 4X4 VXL's Velineon 540XL motor delivers massive torque to wheelie on command and hold the front end high as long as you dare. Pitch the Hoss into a turn and slide through sideways in a cloud of dirt—all four tires dig in and drive hard no matter how rough the terrain, and the Traxxas Stability Management system keeps you in control. The rugged, reinforced pickup body covers proven performance tech, with Velineon brushless horsepower and heavy-duty shaft-driven 4WD. The Hoss delivers unmatched versatility as the aggressive Sledgehammer™ tires blast through dirt, sand, mud, and snow. Drive harder, go faster, hang tougher—legendary Traxxas durability is engineered into every component. Nothing stops the Hoss!

Velineon® 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.
 

 

EXTREME SLEDGEHAMMER GRIP
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!
 

 

ROCK-SOLID DRIVETRAIN
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.
 

 

TORQUE-BIASING CENTER DRIVE
Torque-Biasing Center Drive
The Torque-Biasing Center Drive absorbs shocks to improve driveline durability. The center drive also distributes power to all four wheels for mind-bending four-wheel drive acceleration without the side effects of a typical center differential. Center differentials allow tires in the air to balloon uncontrollably, while the Torque-Biasing Center Drive allows wheelies off the line with seamless power distributed to all four wheels.
