I have had a Electric 4-tec for awhile now and I recently decided to jump to the big guy. so I grabbed a E-maxx, but it sounds a little loud, right out of the box it sounded kind of rough like there was a grind but i dont know if this is common for the E-maxx right out of the box, I also cant get any wheelies either. is there anything I have to do? or is something wrong with my truck?

Check pinons for proper adj. tighten grub screws. Ajd. slipper clutch (per manual) glue tires, check all electricals connection. Adj ESC (per manual).If you put some grease in the transmission, use thin (light). The bigger things are the bigger they sound.
Don't force it, get a BIGGER HAMMER

Yeah, what he said!
I had to tighten my spur gear, but it should wheelie easily with fresh batteries.

E-Maxx tranny will be noisy. Its just something to get used to. You can go wiht 48 pitch gears to help quiet it down, but due to the torque placed on the gears, I wouldnt recomend it.

The E-Maxx is a little louder than most r/c's, but ours quieted down bigtime when we adjusted the slipper to a 1/4 turn out from locked down as advised in the manual. Also adjusted the pinion/spur gear lash. This made it much quieter and performed noticeably better. The other adjustment you may have overlooked for better performance is to disconnect the motors and adjust the speed control for maximum voltage using a volt meter. Now My daughter with her E-Maxx is right on the tail of her brother's XXXT (with a stock motor)in a drag race.

My truck is and always has been loud from day one and I have done all I can to reduce noise without buying something.
