Take a driving course and stop hitting stuff!LOL:p
Just kidding..I replaced mine with stainless screws and now they just shear off instead! Sorry I'm not much help.
You can call me "Old School", but I have a first gen. maxx with an OS .15 in it and have had nothing but great results. I have rebuilt the engine once (after 4 gallons of fuel) and haven't rebuilt...
DO-U-MAXX, Nice job man! I really like the looks of the scoop. I've never really liked cutting the winshield either. Here are the custom bumpers I made for mine out of 1/4 Alum.
Rumor has it that if you rev your engine really high with no load on the wheels, you can break the connecting rod that attaches to the piston. Basically this means your engine is junk and is gonna...
Westborough here.....1st. gen maxx w/ an O.S. and lots of mods.
My first mod was a spool and I wouldn't think of running without it. I've driven my buddies trucks and they just aren't as much fun without it. I bash & race with it and have had excellent results. I...
Here's what they look like.....I run them all over the place!
They hold up just fine!:cool:
SportTraxx would be my suggestion. These tires are lighter than stock, get great traction on all surfaces, and wear very well! You may want to get new rims too like sportmaxx or RPM stablemaxx.
$17 Megatech brakes......plus I just replaced my steering servo so the 2055 is now my new throttle/brake servo.
All I can say is WOW! The only problem is if I built a sweet ride like that, I'd be cleaning it more that I drove it! LOL
Here's a true story guys......
I got the maxx out at work and got ready to show off a bit for the co-workers. After putting in the fuel and checking batteries I ziptied on my nice clean motorsaver...
Go with the offset.....the wider the better! I run the first gen. maxx and it's helped tremendously!!! Also, with RPM's return policy you can't loose!:D
I have a simple question warren. Did you follow the directions and go through the setup? I'm not trying to sound rude but you did not mention this in your original post. This may be the reason for it...
I'll give you an A+ for creativity but I don't much care for the looks of them. Sorry but nice job anyway!:)
I used to paint my own when I raced electric. You guys are inspiring me to get back into it.....maybe I'll buy an airbrush? Talk about personalized!!! Awesome job everyone!:cool:
UndynamicP, go for the SportTraxx tires with 2 stage foams. They hold up great on all surfaces and have 40% less rotating mass. The truck actually turns better too! Get em' off buytraxxas.com
I've got this one
$24.99 at my lhs.....so far-so good!:D
I don't like running with the body off and I don't have a surplus like titaniumleg so painting to me would mean less time running. I run the pre-painted bodies. Very nice work everyone!!!
Rockerboi, the lsn doesn't control the idle, there is a seperate idle screw for that. It controls how much fuel the engine gets at low or no throttle. If it were too lean it would simply cut out upon...
This is not a pic of my truck but I came across it on a maxx site. This is what happens when your 1/10 meets a 1:1! OUCH!!!!
Sounds like you need to turn your LSN clockwise about 1/8 turn. Hows the idle? After a high speed run, stop and listen to the idle. It should remain steady. If it drops it's a good indication that...
Hey Big Bad TMAXX, Here are some rib dawgs from IMEX.
As far as tires go check here:
I'm on my second gallon of the new 20% Top Fuel and I also noticed that the...
