Craniac dives headfirst into the ring, with a bone chilling look, innovative features, and of course, enough torque to grind anything into the dust. Craniac is one headstrong monster truck! Crushing cars, catching big air, and wheelies have never been this much fun. Craniac’s unique style, capability, and Traxxas-tough durability is unmatched.
Craniac’s unique style, capability, and Traxxas-tough durability is unmatched. When it comes to speed, the Titan 12-turn 550 modified motor and racing-style Magnum 272 transmission launch Craniac to speeds over 30mph (with optional accessories). 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.
Precision 2.4GHz Control Radio System
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.
Traxxas 4-amp DC Peak Detecting Fast Charger!
For quick, convenient, hassle-free charging, a 4amp DC fast charger is included to maximize runtime and minimize down time.

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.
