I think by definition if you want to Max Cancel you have to be in hyper drive.
Maxima only has three special moves (if you count air.vapor cannon he has four). The cool thing is he does massive damage and his limit is his stocks (the more he has the more creative the combos can get). df.C has pretty good horizontal range as well.

-Crossup j.C, d.A, df.C, qcb+P/hcb+B.qcb+P -->
-Crossup j.C, d.A, df.C, Ex hcb+K.qcb+P, [DC] Ex qcb+P, (wire) df.C, dp+K *In theory, instead of the last dp+K you could do another Ex hcb+K etc...
