Fatbax was a series introduced in 2004. All 10 cars had giant rear wheels and tiny front wheels, hence the Fatbax name ("fat backs"). 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; these were available in stores from 2004 through 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, both in 2005.

The rear wheels have all the same size on every Fatbax model.
