TXT-1 VS E-MAXX
Both the RC models are highly popular amongst the RC hobbyists. Therefore
one is often posed with a dilemma of which one to buy? If some important
points are considered then the choice becomes easier depending upon
the convenience, experience and budget. E-Maxx is used for racing and
the TXT to climb steep hills and rocks. For backyard bashing trucks
are fun to drive.
As regards to assembly TXT is a good choice for those who like to build
their own RC kits. TXT needs to be built up and radio system needs to
be installed as well. In contrast, the E-Maxx comes as Ready-to-Run
(RTR), which means it is fully assembled and includes a radio system.
The E-Maxx is a lot cheaper than the TXT to get up and running. Therefore
people with limited budgets should opt for an E-maxx. The E-Maxx has
enormous hop-up potential because there are many aftermarket parts available
for the E-Maxx. In contrast, there are very few hop-ups available for
the TXT. Traxxas parts are easier to obtain and cheaper in the USA than
Tamiya parts. If you live in the USA this is something to consider.
Thus parts support is more efficient in E-maxx. So is the speed for
E-maxx. The E-Maxx is faster than the TXT.
Another feature where E-maxx excels is jumping. E-Maxx is unbelievable
at jumping because its high speed allows you to obtain "big air" and
its suspension easily absorbs the impact of massive jumps. In contrast,
the TXT doesn't move fast enough in stock form to make it fun to jump.
However, if modified motors and an ESC are installed into the TXT it
can also be fun to jump and its cantilever suspension easily absorbs
the force of large jumps too.
Both the E-Maxx and TXT are good at climbing reasonably steep hills
in stock form, but with a few modifications either can be made to climb
a lot better. In any event, the TXT maintains a climbing edge over the
Both trucks will go over nearly any terrain, but the TXT is a better
rock crawler because it has massive amounts of articulation and solid
axles. Generally speaking, solid-axle trucks are better for rock crawling
than independent suspension trucks. The E-Maxx is excellent on the race
truck and Maxx Truck racing is very popular in the USA. The TXT does
not perform as well on the race track as the E-Maxx and TXT racing is
NOT popular in the USA.
The TXT has limited gearing choices in comparison to the E-Maxx. Also,
it is difficult to change pinion gears on the TXT in comparison to the
E-Maxx. To change pinion gears on the TXT you parts of the central
gearbox should be removed, which is a hassle.
As regards to durability, both the E-Maxx and TXT are durable and can
take a lot of abuse and require little effort to maintain. Similarly,
both trucks can take backyard bashing and are great for general use.
The TXT is a very scale realistic model in comparison to the E-Maxx.
Also, some people claim that only solid-axle trucks are true monster
