There is also another company called Traxxas, and their popular model, the 1/10 Traxxas E-Maxx. This is a twin motor, twin battery, 1/10 electric 4x4 truck that goes 23 mph out of the box.

1/10 4x4 Gas Monster Truck

Similar to their electric counterparts except that these are powered by more powerful 2-stroke gas engines. This means more speed and longer run times. Simply stop for a short pit stop for fuel and keep on running.

1/10 4x4 gas monster trucks are recommended for those who want more speed than the 4x4 electric trucks. One of the most popular brand and model is the 1/10 Traxxas T-Maxx 2.5. This model goes over 40+ mph out of the box, without any modifications.

1/8 4x4 Nitro Monster Truck

1/8 scale are simply bigger and faster than 1/10 scale nitro monster trucks. These have bigger and more powerful nitro engines. Bigger truck tires and suspension system also makes these trucks more stable over rough terrain. Most have 2-speed transmissions (some even have reverse). And then there are some with awesome 3-speed transmissions.

Popular models are the HPI Nitro Savage 25, Tamiya TNX, and Kyosho Mad Force. The HPI Nitro Savage 25 goes well over 40 mph.
