Over the past decade, Axial has been synonymous with crawlers and the scale trail community for creating vehicles that inspires endless adventure and creative freedom. Something interesting started to evolve and a trend began to appear, 4WD straight axle Monster Jam® Trucks. What better to build upon that trend than to offer one of the most striking trucks within Monster Jam®, MAX-D™. Since 2003, MAX-D™ has won 11 Monster Jam World Finals® championships and brought crowds to their feet with daredevil maneuvers and non-stop excitement. Amongst a lineup of Monster Jam® Trucks, the low slung futuristic SUV body with yellow, red and silver paint scheme combined with chrome spikes is an instant grabber.
SMT10™ TUBE FRAME CHASSIS
Axial went all out when designing the chassis and roll cage for the SMT10™ Max-D™ Monster Jam® Truck. Very similar to the modern era full size monster trucks, this chassis was developed for maximum strength and an extremely detailed appearance. The chassis offers many pivot points for suspension tuning. Scale realism and strength are achieved through triangulation of the chassis tubes, making it ready for maximum attack and hard core Monster Truck bashing.
The AR60 OCP-Axle™ is constructed from high strength composite material which has a low flex rate but is not as brittle as standard glass filled nylon. The combination of our axles and a true 4-link suspension gives you optimal performance for any terrain with the look of a real 1:1 vehicle.
• Off-center pumpkin design
• Axle tubes are reinforced with a boxed-in axle truss
• High strength composite material
• Updated steering knuckles for dual shear, also eliminates secondary bolt on plate
• Updated differential cover and servo mount for new look
HEAVY DUTY C-HUBS
Monster Jam® trucks are known for wild, high flying action, so we’ve strengthened the front c-hubs to help take on hard impacts from jumps and extreme bashing!
HEAVY DUTY HYDRAULIC RAM STYLE STEERING LINKS
For steering, we’ve designed a heavy duty tie rod, drag link, and simulated scale hydraulic ram steering link to help get the massive BKT tires pointed in the right direction so you can stay on course.
The servo saver helps protect the servo’s internal gears from damage during hard impacts.
TRAILING ARM / LEADING ARM 4-LINKED SUSPENSION
The SMT10™ features AR60 axles with trailing/leading arm 4-linked suspension and additional shock mounting positions.
RECEIVER BOX, WATERPROOF
The waterproof receiver box utilizes three different silicone seals: one for the antenna, one for the servo wires (includes three slots for three channels), and one acts as a gasket for the receiver box cover. No more stress when running in mud, water, or snow!
EASY ACCESS BATTERY TRAY
The battery tray can be easily accessed at the rear of the vehicle. To install your battery, remove one pin, swing out the tray door and slide the battery pack in. The tray is fully height adjustable with four screws, making room for most standard sized 2S and 3S LiPo battery packs.
ADJUSTABLE ALUMINUM 87-125mm SHOCKS
Made to tight tolerances, these aluminum shocks feature clear coated polished aluminum bodies and are threaded for quick ride height adjustments and pre-load tuning ability.
MULTIPLE SHOCK MOUNTING POSITIONS
We’ve included a variety of shock mounting points for additional suspension tuning options. There’s also additional mounting points on the cage and at the axle for moving your shocks to a more scale, vertical position if desired.
REAR SWAYBAR FOR ADDED STABILITY
A rear sway bar is included to help keep torque twist and body lean to a minimum during acceleration. A sway bar’s main function is to control body roll, yet still allow your shocks to move vertically with the changing terrain. The SMT10™ chassis design allows you to add an optional sway bar to the front.
WB8 HD DRIVESHAFTS
Updated design for larger diameter crosspin (2x11mm) for added strength. New center splined slider floats between each end, added material on this part reduces flex and fatigue.
Updated Dual Pad slipper system with 32 Pitch gearing. New slipper design uses a pad on each side of the spur gear for added surface area. More precise tuning and holding power. Stronger 32P gearing for high torque applications. 56T Spur / 11T Pinion RTR gearing for 3S. Includes 16T Pinion for 2S.
• Three gear layout
• Metal motor plate
• 32P gearing
• Heavy duty slipper
• Sealed gear cover
DUAL SLIPPER CLUTCH
Our dual slipper design uses a pad on each side of the spur gear for added surface area. This allows for more precise tuning and holding power. The spur gear features strong, 32 pitch gearing for high torque applications.
• Slipper design uses a pad on each side of the spur gear for added surface contact area
• More precise tuning and holding power
• Strong 32P gear pitch for high torque applications
