Show Spares and Option Parts

The iON XT shares the same spare parts list as the existing models for easy parts availability, plus the Maverick iON range has been updated with new-spec electronics! The Maverick iON kits lead the way with fantastic brand new top-spec features: a Maverick Element 1200mAh Ni-MH battery, MTX-248 2.GHz radio and a 2-in-1 waterproof MSRS-248 receiver/speed controller. 

The motor fitted in the Maverick iON XT is the reliable MM-28 370-size motor, bolted to an aluminum motor mount for extra drivetrain durability and improved heat dissipation, so drivers can keep having fun for hours and hours! The 4WD drivetrain uses ball bearings throughout to give drivers maximum runtime and efficiency, and features a molded gear cover to keep dirt and debris away from the gears. Front and rear gear differentials easily transfer the motors power to durable driveshafts and finally to the grippy rubber wheels at all four corners.

The Maverick iON XT features a complete set of gold-colored shock caps for the oil-filled shock absorbers. These add an extra bit of color and style to the chassis, just to make it look that much cooler! The suspension also features dual-wishbone independent suspension front and rear, with reliable C-hub style front hubs and extra-strong single-piece rear hubs. The strong MS-28 servo controls the steering through a dual-point steering system that features and integrated servo saver to protect the servo against crash damage. 

Finishing off every Maverick iON XT is and fully detailed, completely painted and stickered body with a design that not only looks amazing, it provides additional protection for the chassis components.

Please could you tell me the range of the Maverick Ion XT? We're looking for something with around 100m+
Asked by Christine Jameson on 15th September 2016

Range isn't quoted for these, however it's likely to be several hundred metres in real world conditions.

We've never had one go out of range...! I think it would go out of sight before it went out of range

Hello, I am looking at the 'Maverick Ion XT' for my 10 year old nephew. Would you say that it is a manageable first R/C car? can the acceleration be adjusted on the trigger? If you think it would be a handful do you have another suggestion for an 'off road' RC car. Thank you for your assistance. Regards.
Asked by Heme Nt on 9th May 2017

Yes, we'd recommend this for a first time vehicle. We've used them ourselves on several primary school open days and they are ideal for smaller hands (aswell as us big kids!!).

Hi, What is the Tamiya male to female converter for in the combo, and is it necessary? Thanks
Asked by Stephen Malin on 24th October 2017

Yes, that converts from normal Tamiya down to Mini Tamiya, as used on this vehicle. It allows you to use the fast charger.  Pretty much all fast chargers will normally come with a standard sized Tamiya connector, rather than the mini version.

how long does the battery last? how long does it take to charge? can I get an extra battery sent to Northern Ireland for a Maverick Ion XT BRAND: MAVERICK PART NUMBER: MV12808
Asked by David W Mcafee on 30th March 2019

Battery life is around 10-15 mins and they take around 6 hours to charge on the included charger.  On a fast charger it would take around 45 mins to charge.

Yes you can run more than one at a time no problem

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

How much runtime should I expect from the 1700mAh battery in the combo pack and is the standard battery included with the car compatible with the fast charger in the combo pack?
Asked by Matt Bailey on 22nd April 2021

I'd say about 15 - 20 mins run time on this battery , yes you still get the standard battery included.
