Maverick unveils new SCT & 1/8 buggy



The All-New Maverick TimberWolf and DesertWolf are Coming Soon! From the minds at Maverick comes the awesome TimberWolf 4WD short course truck and DesertWolf buggy, a pair of fun, fast and durable vehicles you can take anywhere! Using a modern & lightweight design and the most powerful electronics we can fit in the chassis, the TimberWolf and DesertWolf have been created from the ground up for low weight, high power and maximum toughness. With the newest advances in racing-style suspension and super-strong materials, these are no-compromise, extra-tough and extra-fast vehicles that are equally at home at any bashing area or your local track.


The all-new Wolf range from Maverick merges the latest racing design with lightweight construction and extra-powerful electronics to give you loads of fun! The TimberWolf and DesertWolf are both fitted with powerful electronics such as a 4000Kv brushless motor and waterproof 3S capable speed controller that combine to give you amazing acceleration and top speed!


The Maverick Wolves feature a durable 4WD shaft drivetrain that is equipped with 3 diffs: one at the front, rear and middle of the chassis, all equipped with strong metal gears to handle the power from the motor. All of the drivetrain components rotate on sealed ball bearings, and the Wolves features universal driveshafts at the front for extra efficiency. A waterproof, 3S capable speed controller powers the 4000Kv brushless motor, and the receiver rests within a water-resistant box for protection from the elements.


The suspension has been designed from the ground up just for the Maverick Wolf series. It’s derived from race-proven designs and made from the strongest materials available, so it’s tough and reliable on any type of terrain, whether you’re blasting down a trail, hitting the jumps or driving on a racetrack!

The TimberWolf takes its styling from current full-scale racing trucks, with an aerodynamically designed racing body, front and rear crash bumpers, front skidplate, mudflaps, 6-spoke beadlock-style wheels and multi-level tri-pin racing tires to help to make the Timberwolf look and drive like a real racing truck.


The DesertWolf definitely looks the part of a racing buggy, too – a large racing wing provides downforce at the rear, subtly anodized shock towers secure threaded shock absorbers in place and 7-spoke twist-style wheels are wrapped with chunky racing tires for supreme ground control. Topping off the DesertWolf is the world’s first reversible racing buggy body! You can now choose to have a sleek traditional style buggy body with an aerodynamic cockpit or a modern cab-forward body for more front downforce – all you have to do is turn the body around to completely change the look of the car!


The Maverick Wolves: beautiful, tough and deadly!
