Based on the Stampede, Craniac brings a new face to monster truck action. Craniac is a heavy-hitter with legendary ruggedness and a whole new attitude, ready to jump into the ring and take on its arch rival Craniac! It’s pure monster truck driving fun.
Craniac takes the fight seriously with massive torque ready to grind opponents into the dust. Combine the horsepower with the tall, drive-over-anything ground clearance; ultra-tough suspension; exclusive waterproof electronics and easy operation, Craniac quickly crushes its way to the top of the podium leaving a mass of carnage on the arena floor.
When it comes to speed, the Titan 12-turn 550 modified motor and racing-style Magnum 272™ transmission launch Craniac to speeds over 30mph*. The integrated cooling fan in the Titan 12T pulls air through the motor keeping it cool. Airflow is routed through cooling channels molded into the motor plate. A cooler running motor delivers faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life.
Craniac benefits from its Traxxas heritage incorporating advanced Revo® technology to bolster performance. The Magnum 272 transmission is fully sealed and comes equipped with efficient and precise ball bearings and an advanced Revo®-Spec Torque-Control™ slipper clutch. Monster truck tires provide sure-footed traction no matter how extreme the terrain. The monster truck tires are pre-glued and mounted on solid satin-finished wheels. The tires grip the pavement, tear through rocks, and have the ability to kick-up massive roost. The tires include performance-tuned foam inserts that provide extra stability on any surface. Wherever your next grudge match lands Craniac will be ready.
With the TQ™ 2.4GHz radio system, you just switch on a drive. There are no channels or frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. The TQ's ergonomic design is comfortable for all-day driving, and its sleek lines are enhanced by an internal antenna that is impervious to damage.
For quick, convenient, hassle-free charging, a 4amp DC fast charger is included to maximize runtime and minimize down time. The included NiMH charger uses a 12-Volt DC power outlet for universal high-output charging. The brilliant LED provides charging status as soon as the battery is connected. The charger is optimized for charging your Traxxas iD Power Cell NiMH battery. Peak-detection circuitry makes sure the battery receives a full charge every time. The status LED flashes green to indicate when charging is in progress, then turns solid green when charging is complete for foolproof charging, peak performance, and maximum runtime.
Craniac includes a Traxxas iDTM Power CellTM Battery Packs are optimized for free-flowing power and maximum punch with premium quality, low-resistance cells; flexible, silicone-jacketed 12-gauge wire; heavy-duty welded tabs; and Traxxas High-Current Connectors. Traxxas iD chargers (sold separately) auto-detect iD-equipped Power Cell batteries and automatically set and optimize charge settings. Precision assembly with attractive, individually wrapped cells and clear overwrap complete the package.
