joins the Maverick RC family!
Maverick RC's reputation for affordable fun continues with the hugely impressive ATOM! This 1/18th scale monster truck gives you the thrilling excitement of much larger RC trucks in a package that fits in the palm of your hand! 4WD grip and large off-road tires mean you can turn anywhere you go into your own RC playground!
A strong shaft drivetrain and 3-gear differentials get power to the ground through all four wheels for amazing stability and handling. The ATOM is fitted with a cage-reinforced custom screen printed truck body, available in four colors for monster truck scale looks. Each ATOM comes with body color-matched shocks, a motor heatsink and wheel centre accessories! Performance block tread rubber tires provide grip and control, aided by the color-matched sprung shock absorbers.
The Maverick ATOM also features all-new electronics with fantastic top-spec features: a Maverick Element 1300mAh Li-ion battery with a convenient USB charger, MTX-200 2.GHz radio and a 2-in-1 water-resistant MSRS-200 receiver/speed and light controller. Impressive top speed and acceleration are provided by the 380-size motor with a color-matched heatsink for outstanding fun and racing action!
Each ATOM comes standard with LED Driving lights pre-installed in both the bumper and roof cage! Even when the sun goes down you can continue to have fun with the ATOM!
REAL STEERING WHEEL CONTROLLER!
The MTX-200 transmitter makes for a fantastic driving experience with great throttle and steering response. The color-matched foam steering wheel is comfortable to hold and gives a great driving feel. The included steering and throttle trims allow you to setup the car with ease.
All you need is 3 x AA batteries for the transmitter. Check below for more information.
IT'S SO EASY AND FUN TO DRIVE!
To drive the ATOM, simply pick up the controller with your left hand, put your left index finger into the trigger area, and then put your right hand on the steering wheel – it’s as natural as driving a real car! It takes seconds to get used to this easy operation, and pretty soon you'll be racing with your friends!
ELEMENT 1300mAh Li-ion BATTERY PACK!
The included high-capacity 1300mAh Li-ion battery pack gives excellent runtime, with 7.4v providing the ATOM with all the power you'll need. The pack is easy to access thanks to the quick-release battery strap system.
A closer look under the hood
The motor fitted in the Maverick ATOM is the reliable MM-200 380-size motor, so drivers can keep having fun for hours and hours! The 4WD drivetrain uses ball bearings on the axles to give drivers maximum runtime and efficiency and features an enclosed gear cover to keep dirt and debris away from the gears. Front and rear gear differentials, connected with a heavy-duty hexagonal steel centre shaft, easily transfer the motor's power to durable driveshafts and finally to the grippy rubber wheels at all four corners.
The strong MS-200 servo controls the steering through a dual-point bellcrank system with an integrated shock-absorbing servo saver to help protect against crash damage. Rugged duel-wishbone suspension is paired with super reliable C-hub steering hubs and one-piece rear hubs.
The honey-combed chassis is lightweight and provides the super strong backbone of the ATOM Monster Truck. Side Impact bars protect the lower edge of the bodywork. All four color-matched shock absorbers include a threaded body allowing you to easily adjust your shock setup on the go!
Meet the Fleet!
The ATOM nails the awesome Monster Truck look and performance in equal measures - and we're also giving you a choice of eye-catching colors to take home all housed within the tough cage reinforced, yet flexible bodyshell:

Every Maverick ATOM features a fully detailed and painted body with driver and co-pilot figures and a design that not only looks amazing, it provides additional protection for the chassis components.
