Fatbax was a series, which debuted in the 2004 First Editions series. All 10 cars had giant rear wheels and tiny front wheels. The cars themselves were wedge-shaped and often had exaggerated engine sizes. Because of their large rear wheels, they could not fit on Hot Wheels racing tracks, and could only work on very few playsets.
The cars with this odd design caused a financial loss for Mattel and the sales of Fatbax cars were low, rendering the series unsuccessful. They were found in stores at around 2004-2005. Most Fatbax cars have not been produced again since their initial release; the only two Fatbax cars to see a second release were the Shelby Cobra 427 S/C and the Plymouth Barracuda.
The rear wheels have all the same size on every Fatbax model.
