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 - the 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. Axial went all out when designing the chassis and roll cage for the SMT10 MAX-D Monster Jam Truck. Very similar to modern era full size monster trucks, this chassis was developed for maximum strength and an extremely detailed appearance.
SMT10™ TUBE FRAME CHASSIS: 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.
2.2 BKT MONSTER JAM TIRES: BKT has designed and developed the special BKT Monster Jam Tire, a purpose-built tire to handle the rigors of Monster Jam Truck racing and freestyle competition. The 1/10 scale BKT tire is modeled to provide scale realism and maximum performance for your Axial Monster Jam Truck.
HEAVY DUTY HYDRAULIC RAM STYLE STEERING LINKS: For steering, Axial 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.
TRAILING ARM 4-LINKED REAR SUSPENSION: The SMT10 features the proven AR60 axle with a trailing arm 4-linked rear suspension and additional shock mounting positions.
AR60 OCP-AXLE: 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 AR60 axles and a true 4-link suspension gives you optimal performance for any terrain with the look of a real 1:1 vehicle.

WB8 HD DRIVESHAFTS: Updated design for larger diameter crosspin (2x11mm) for added strength. Center splined slider floats between each end, added material on this part reduces flex and fatigue.
MULTIPLE SHOCK MOUNTING POSITIONS: Axial included a variety of shock mounting points for running dual shock setups and 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.
WATERPROOF RECEIVER BOX: 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.
