The Mini Mauler™ offers some of the best bang for your buck in a ready-to-run, mini monster truck package. But did you know that the Mini Mauler is upgradable for even more excitement? With the simple and inexpensive upgrades available, you can have your Mini Mauler tearing around at even faster speeds using whichever combination is right for you.

Battery Upgrade

The 5-cell, 6-volt Ni-MH rechargeable battery (HBZ1011) is the simplest and fastest upgrade available for the Mini Mauler, and offers a great increase in power and performance. To charge the battery, you’ll also need the 1.2-amp DC Peak Charger (HBZ1026). Once the battery is fully charged, just plug it in and you’ll notice the increased speed right away. It’s the first step in getting even more power from your Mini Mauler, and, in the long run, it’s less expensive than buying standard alkaline batteries.

Motor Upgrade

After you’ve picked up the rechargeable battery and charger, the next step for more speed and performance is the upgrade motor (HBZ3068). Offering more power for faster runs, the upgrade motor is fairly easy to install and will add noticeable punch to your power. The included 3-view drawing provides step-by-step instructions on how to install the upgrade motor in a short amount of time.

Ball Bearings

The final performance upgrade for your Mini Mauler is the ball bearing set (HBZ3049). The bearings require a little more work to install than the other upgrades, but they reduce rolling resistance and let you take full advantage of the new motor and battery. The bearing set includes four bearings for the wheels, as well as bearings for the transmission. Any of these upgrades makes a great addition to your Mini Mauler, and combining them lets you get the most out of your mini monster. So if you’ve been looking for a way to add even more performance to your Mini Mauler, check out one or all of these performance upgrades today.
