    Vintage Traxxas Electric Picture & Video Gallery

    Welcome to the Vintage Traxxas Electric Gallery, a place where everyone can show off pictures [& videos] of their vintage Traxxas vehicles. Feel free to list all of your current hop-ups, etc.


    Here are the rules :

    1: This thread is for pictures [& videos only], if you have a question for one of the people posting a picture or video, please send them an e-mail or a PM so the thread doesn't get cluttered with chit-chat. (if you are posting a picture [or video], please make sure your preferences are set to receive PM's from other members)

    2: Maximum picture size should be 640x480 (preferably smaller) so it will fit on most people's computer screens without scrolling, and to be considerate to those on a dial-up connection. Anything larger will be deleted.

    3: Anything off topic will be deleted.

    4: Any "dead" links - you guessed it - deleted.

    5. All song lyrics, statements made within the videos, and all other content must conform to all other applicable rules. [Added by cooleocool]

    Okay, enough with the rules - HAVE FUN!



    Misbehavin' wrote this nice FAQ on how to put pictures in your post.

    Here's my Traxxas Bullet that I won eBay and restored back to brand new condition. This is one neat buggy!

    Upgrades:
    Futaba MC210CB
    Futaba steering servo
    Traxxas TQ2
    Traxxas Stinger motor
    Losi rear tires







    It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand.

    I thought i'd show a couple of my SRT's, one will be my shelf queen and the other will be run and raced.
    first the shelf queen:
    [IMG][/IMG]
    second pic, look at the lack of scratches;

    Now for the racer, it had an alumnium Idler and delrin top gear on a Jato type slipper, with a velineon brushless on it

    I have others i hope to post soon, Including a Blue Eagle LS II, and a TRX3 thats supposed to be a Rick Vhelow prototype, It came with lots of handmade stuff like arms and gearboxes

    This here pic is my SRT in action at the 2005 Hank Perry 240 in Spokane Washington. Memorial weekend 2005. It's last outing was late 2006 at Scottsdale R/C Raceway in Arizona, and it's fixing to make another appearance in the next couple weeks here.

    My radness can not be quantified.

    I don't have pics of all of them, but here are a few past and present:

    one of my current TRX-1's


    my original SRT (sold it a few years ago)









    Another SRT (sold this one too)






    Blue Eagle. I have a NIP body for this one. Truck is 100% new at this point:






    LS-II






    NIB SRT









    Maybe this will be the year I take pics of the whole collection.

    Vintage SRT

    Here is my SRT.
    It won quite a few trophies in the early nineties and then i switched my focus to Helicopters. Decided to revive it with the new brushless technology and it rips.
    I turned the SRT into a 3 cell lipo powered Velineon monster!
    I ripped a fully worked Aluminum front end off a nitro rustler and put it on the SRT. It has a nice thick CF shock tower, Powerline aluminum A-arms, and Aluminum Castor Blocks, and ball bearings in the steering bellcranks. It was pretty much a direct swap except for the body mounts. They are lower on the srt.

    Then I went to the rear end. Opened up the tranny and put in all the VXL metal gears to hold up to the power. It was saddening pulling out the ball diff, but I think the velineon would strip the teeth on it. I also put in the new topshaft and new torque control slipper from the VXL. Added the new style drive yokes that the pin goes all the way through too.

    Updated all the radio equipment to JR and a Digital, High Torque metal gear steering servo.

    I have a couple Graphite Hawk 2 Race trucks that have the velineon system too. Pics will be up shortly.

    Cool

    This is my hawk 2 I rebuilt after buying it from a buddy. Had to of course replace all the electronics put a tazer 15 E.S.C. with a speed Gems pro. 16t double wound motor with futaba receiver and cervo. This car dosent have much torque on the start up but it takes verry little time to get up to speed this is a verry fast car now. Would like some help on gearing would like more torque & high speed is this possible? The car still has original 84 tooth spur gear and 18 tooth pinion gear.

    I'm Wondering what the value on a hawk runs. I might be selling one that I rebuilt ast year. Has a Reedy Radon motor, Tazer 15 esc And TQ3 radio.

    You should have this in the vintage area... but what the heck:

    Brand new 1994 stampede... the first year they came out... with the original box and everything.




    All original white chassis sledgehammer with all original but upgraded electronics. The electronics would have been what you would buy for this truck to upgrade when it was new. 20T stinger and XL1 ESC. Body is a real original sledge body too:



    All original black chassis sledgehammer with all original stock electronics. MSC and 540 motor. Body is a TBG reproduction but stickers and chrome bits are original:



    I also own these 2 ORIGINAL and unopened Sledgehammer sticker sheets... They are literally among my prize possessions:

    Here's my TRX-1. It's all vintage parts and several vintage upgrades as well. Even the electronics are new and from the same era. The body is used, it was the only one I could find after months of searching. After some new decals and some plastic polish, it really looked a lot better.

    The buggy should be finished in a few weeks!
