Race like a monster
Get ready to rock with this heavy-duty, extreme radio controlled car. Everything you need is included in the box, so there's no need to wait around on the start line - get racing straight away!

The Rock Crawler 3XL features heavy duty suspension, designed for off-road use but it's equally at ease racing around on tarmac drives or pathways. The vehicle has a large transmitter with a finger trigger for precise speed control. On the right hand side of the remote is a rotary dial with a small rotation angle for precision steering. The remote’s 2.4GHz frequency allows multiple vehicles to be raced simultaneously without the risk of radio interference.


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun Purchase for my 6 year old son, who loves it. Easy to control and useable straight from the box (after charging the batteries). Each wheel is independently sprung, with plenty of ground clearance, big tyres and a fairly tough, flexible body that hopefully won't break too easily. We have only used outdoors. It's fairly quick and you would need lots of room inside to avoid hitting walls, etc. It handled grass, flowerbeds and a series of obsticles up to 3 inches high with ease. Overall very happy with this purchase And certainly a hit with my son.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Offroad Car for 10 Year Old I bought this as a Christmas present for my 10 year old who had asked for his first radio controlled car. With such a choice I managed to nail him down to an Offroad style vehicle, which I was pleased to hear as this would be equipped with big tyres and bumpers to prevent damage! I looked at others both more and less expensive but settled on this, as the price offered more features than cheaper models but wasn't as technical as more expensive ones (as a first RC car he literally wants to be able to make it go forward and backwards and left and right without being so fast that he can't control it). Well it does what it says on the tin and then some. This is a great vehicle which seems to be capable of anything. The manual says it goes about 5mph and that seems about right. It also says it can't be driven on grass but it definitely can, provided it's not wet otherwise the vehicle just wheel spins. It easily climbs up and down kerbs and because it doesn't go too fast it doesn't get damaged and the big tyres absorb most of the impacts and provide great ground clearance for rocks, etc. Took it to a shingle beach yesterday and it coped easily with rocks and drops its own size. As for charging, the manual says the first two charges should be for 2 hours and thereafter each charge should take about 45 mins. There is a handy light on the charger which is red when charging the flat battery pack for the car itself (the controller takes AA batteries) and which turns green when the battery is charged. It's currently taking about 40 minutes to recharge my sons and he got a full hour of use at the beach, which is another massive plus point for this model. All in all spectacularly good value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing car, great fun The best remote control car, great fun. Drives brilliantly over rough ground, up and over pavements. Nice sturdy car and good suspension. My son has played with this non stop. Rechargable battery pack, which takes approx 30 to charge for 20 mins play. Good value as not over priced

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price Bought 2 of these at £49.99 each for my sons Xmas presents. Great fun and pretty sturdy. Really good at crawling over some large rocks and fairly easy to control, even for my 5 year old.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great vehicle for the first ten minutes Unfortunately the steering failed within minutes of being used. Waiting for a replacement. However, staff in the shop could not have been more helpful and happily agreed to exchange for a different vehicle or we could wait for new stock to arrive. The ratings are based on this vehicle only. Our other grandson has one that has been brilliant which is why we bought this in the first place. Our experience of the other vehicle would have been five stars across the board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing RC truck I got this for my 8 year old son who has not put it down since getting it. Because it's rechargeable, it means that we're not constantly changing the batteries and it charges up in no time. The truck has amazing suspension so can easily drive on dirt, sand, grass and rocks, it even went easily over the snow and will bump up and down curbs with no problem at all. It's easy to control and very fast too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big value My husband brought his boys two monster trucks that should have worked together and don’t , so I ordered this one mainly for the price , half price at just £25 . It works with the other monster truck and it’s a fun big truck that can easily get up kerbs , not very fast but still good fun and gets the boys away from their computer games for half an hour

On this occasion, Maplin does not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.
