    Never have I been so envious of one single man and his RC. Sure I can build one just like everyone else and we can race all day long. But you, you have something that I simply will not be able to get in the States, the most wonderful scenery ever.

    Have you considered the Summit? I know that you have a serious amount invested into your E-Maxx, but some of the new features are really up the alley of what you do. Remote locking differentials and two speed transmission could serve you well on your hikes.

    By the way, don't ever stop. Your photos make up a majority of my wallpapers and screen saver pics. Thank you.
    I don't have a witty signature.

    Yes, I have considered the Summit of course, the series brings many improvements we have been applying to Emaxx long time, and my Emaxx already has three years and many miles.
    If I had to buy a new car and did not know the Emaxx, this would be my choice. Lockable differentials are very helpful in a fall on a slope.
    I doubt whether it will be good and effective suspension. That of my Emaxx, as I have the setup now seems unbeatable.
    We are using a 10/72 relationship and I would like the summit were even slower in first gear .. Finally, wait for some evidence to decide.

    hummm, let him down?

    ... and we can take it you have fully mastered tricky driving with one hand, but how do you do this with thick gloves on too? Ice-axe in one hand, 3PM/DX3 in the other - brilliant!

    It is difficult to estimate the miles in my emaxx but it is very possible that has traveled more than 600. Many parts have been changed or improved.
    With regard to driving on ice and winter, I can not use thick gloves but some bikers windstopper gloves are perfect for this in the left hand , and ski gloves ,a little thicker on the right hand.
    unfortunately I can not have an ice-axe in the hands while driving emaxx, which greatly restricts the maximum gradient.
    Down these channels must exercise extreme caution.

    I can not always enjoy good weather on my hikes,
    I think this is a good example of the worst snow I could find in those 60 outings
    High temperature (8 ºC), recent snow. Heavy as to get to skate the hexagons on the wheels.
    These images are of the mountain trek number 64, dec 2008. 3 weeks before the unexpected wave of cold.

    Trail Emaxx: #64. Linza Refuge. Linza cabin.

    Blocking hexagons rim.


    Bad weather, but will get worse throughout the morning.


    Turning a hill


    It is not a cross-country skiing track, is the 'normal' long distance footpath to Linza Pass.


    Bivouac small shelter.


    The pictures are not very sharp, the contrast and light conditions were really tough

    amazing man. I think you should get a summit when it comes out. It would be perfect for you. Also, what kind of camera do you use? I do wildlife photography, and shoot a D80and a 200-400VR

    -Yes, we need to be in very good mood to respond to comments from hikers, all very funny. I have a very curious collection of these comments, but they are slang expressions that are not easily translatable into English.
    -He talked about the camera in this thread, it's a Panasonic Lumix FZ7, previously used a Nikon Coolpix 5400. We need a camera with a single objetive lens, easy to store in the jacket.

    In this last weekend I started this route shortly after 7 am with a very low temperature -13 º C [8 F] and excellent snow conditions, which culminated in the summit . quite easy in August. Soon more photos and two short videos. This is a panoramic view from the top.
    I do not know if it will be complete in the forum, is 1200 * 369 pix.
    You can see the traces of emaxx a few meters.


    And a photo of the same day, while climbing to the summit, to which I have special affection.

    # 66 mountain hike. Contrast snow.
    Powder snow in the morning in a blizzard and shortly after,
    icy snow under a splendid sun.

    Testing a combination of mixed tires: nail in the front tires. Chains and nails in the rear.
    Good handling and traction.


    high battery consumption on the forest trail, more than double what it had calculated.


    In these conditions it was impossible to continue.


    Climbing a small hill. Not by the left, very soft snow.


    Much better rock and icy snow.


    running on snow


    in the tundra?, not really.

    About the batteries I have something in this post, currently up to 35,000 mah in several twin packs of 6 Nimh elements .
    In this next hike #67 I tried ascension to a peak in winter conditions that despite not being able to achieve,
    let me fond memories and unforgettable images.I leave you with some of these.

    Hike #67 Lakora. Western Pyrenees . French-Spanish border.
    Antenna up.


    My emaxx prepared for winter. Nails ,Chains ,rubber profiles changed.


    Above the clouds covering France.


    Good morning, sun.


    Totally icy snow. like stones.


    A little higher


    a little closer ..


    Although fitted with crampons, the passage of this ridge without ice axe is something dangerous driving a emaxx.
    Both hands on the TQ3 do not provide a position to maintain the balance in case of trouble.


    No, this picture is not mine.
    The photo was taken by {DavidWil}, a colleague in a mountain forum , a couple of hours later.
    From this position you can see the rocky mountain ridge at the bottom of the image that I could not overcome.



    At the top of the slope.

    Down the snowy peak. At the bottom of the image, the mountain refuge of Belagua.

    The best rc flight simulator, Emaxx :looks a bit and close your eyes.

    Second attempt at the same mountain, on the other side. a few weeks later.

    Taking advantage of the proximity of a ski station, with a splendid time and temperature really cold,
    I start the route #68 in the same place where I started the first route in this series,
    the mountain port of La Pierre St Martin in the French border .

    Hike #68. Pierre Saint Martin - Arlas. West Pyrenees.
    Link http://www.rc-hiking.com/arlas.htm
    Link (eng) http://www.google.com/translate?lang....com/arlas.htm

    Perfect icy snow. Arlas peak in the foreground and Anie mountain in the background. crampons are essential, and nails in the tires.
    picture is also very similar to the first thing I did, make about three years.
    Going down the first hill, I took the photo of crampons & Emaxx published in this same thread a few days ago.


    I wanted to ascend the first hill on the right, but it was not possible
    due to a side slope not suitable to step without axle ice.


    Running quietly above the clouds, after gaining some altitude.


    Anie peak, that even I failed to climb with the truck after two attempts.


    zoom in closer.


    Turning to the limit.


    Playing on the ice climbing. only the nails in the tires are effective.


    Lowering a very strong frost ramp


    A full speed in second gear on the plains of Larra.


    Sinkholes on a limestone soil covered with snow. Beautiful traps for the Emaxx.


    A short video of a climb on a slippery floor.

    I would like to say thanks for making this thread 'trucktrail'. I am inspired to do the same thing where I live here in the Ozarks Mtns in the states.

    One thing I would like to add to the other comments that I don't think I seen. Maybe Traxxas could sponsor you. Traxxas could send you a Summit with spare parts and you send them some pictures and video. HPI's endurance run with the 5b made me look twice at my getting one. Why not a Summit in its element?

    What do you guys think about seeing a Factory Sponsored Summit running in that scenery?

    Bad weather?. where?
    Sometimes the sun does not do everything we want.

    First winter snow close to home.


    and first blizzard


    A bit of fog.

    -


    Snow turned into rain after just 200 meters down the slope



    broken rear link in wetlands, bad place to do it.


    The worst conditions found to date. Col des Moines.
    This image is not blurry or out of focus.


    Natural Park of 'Peñas de Aia'.


    Strong rain.

    It is a high risk of carrying two batteries 12.000mah and that one did not function properly or is damaged after two hours of walking.
    Also the cost of replacing a Lipo 12,000 is much higher.
    Moreover, Lipos do not support either the cold or shock,
    in the mountain paths can not always dispense the care they need,
    in this sense I think the NiMh are more robust ,less sensitive and until recently, much cheaper.


    What has been changed in this 4 years old Emaxx 3906 after traveling == 500 miles?.
    While this is not true for the new model,
    I think it's interesting to know which parts have proven to be the weakest in the previous emaxx, at least in the type of activity that I usually do.

    This is a rough list of broken pieces or improved in 4 years.
    Miising 2 titan motors , 1 lower chassis and up to 35 NiMH batteries,
    a number of different RC packs and Rc standard parts available in my local hobby store.
    All no mechanical broken parts,that have been changed, they have generally been due to falls on the slopes before taking the car insured with an expandable strap.
    In 2008 for various reasons I had to reduce spending and take advantage of previously purchased items. I still left some.

    Hike 69. Mount Ernio.
    Less snow than in other routes, it is a small mountain near my house. We will not have to climb over 500 meters, but the walk is very beautiful and interesting.
    It is an excursion which I made with emaxx on other occasions. In this ,due to the recent snow will find much mud.

    Leaving shortly after dawn.


    Soon starts a little snow and mud.


    Shortly before arriving at a mountain pass we'll have to go through these slabs of rock


    Picturesque mountain village in the valley below. (-600 meters)


    climbing towards the summit. Not permitted to fall....


    Whenever there is any interest in the emaxx on this route, it is quite common.


    Last part of the climb, there are no more than 300 meters to the summit.


    Initiated the descent , on this side there is more snow. It is necessary to secure the car.


    During the descent, a bit of rocky area.


    And more much mud.



    In the next Route 70, to Cortaplana mountain, we find real snow. An excess. starting at 12 º C below zero (10 F)

    Mountain Hike number 70, Cortaplana. Western Pyrenees.
    An easy mountain in summer, not far from a refuge,
    which in winter conditions presents a very different and interesting scenario.

    Another way to warm tires to evaporate moisture from the sponge.
    Oops, not above 70 ºC for two days


    12 º C below zero (10 F). Beginning of the hike, 07:45 am.
    Ice axle are not necessary but crampons are recommended.


    Within minutes a slight rise begins, at the moment very soft.



    This is a bit harder to climb with the Emaxx, It is a long diagonal toward a mountain pass, with increasing inclination.
    return descent is a bit risky.



    Running over the snow on a small icy lake.
    Background shows part of the slope that we have to climb


    This is.


    (Small crawling video near this area http://video.google.es/videoplay?doc...79238782786124 )

    No emaxx, but it shows the route from the first zigzag up the current position.
    Treated, underexposed image in the tire tracks


    Small snow slides


    A beautiful part of the way towards the mountain pass


    Highlighted image of the mountain route to the summit.
    The plate of snow more inclined, after the first rocks, maybe I should not pass.
    It took too much time ensuring the passage and decide to do .



    More photos of this "winter" tour in the next post,greetings to all.

    Hello everyone. We presented pictures of the 2nd part of the Hike number 70 to the mountain called Cortaplana ( Western Pyreenes, Spain )

    Despite the fact that there is much, much snow in the Pyrenees this year
    the temperature has risen a little, and no longer is in excellent condition for my emaxx.

    In this image, near the top there is good balance between traction and steering on the icy snow.


    We are in the highest part, is now almost flat and we need to get to the vertex, indicated by a small arrow.


    View from the top of the peak cortaplana showing the mountain trail that I followed with emaxx.


    The drop,the will on the other side of the mountain to avoid a dangerous step.


    In many places it is advisable to ensure the Emaxx with a small flange and a retractable cord


    I begin to descend into the valley and I am looking for the lower slope.


    That was it. Even with the car insured in my belt, there was a small slip.




    Final part of the slope, extremely slippery, and snow melting.
    Down at the bottom of the image , the parking of 1/1 ....


    Small footprints, big footprints at the bottom of the mountain hike.


    Best regards, We encourage everyone to make mountain routes with your Emaxx.

    Trucktrial, These photos are the coolest I have ever seen!!!

    You are so lucky!!! I think I am going to get an e-maxx soon to go hiking with it in colorado.

    Good job keep the pics coming!!!

    What did you use to lock your differentials?

    also do you have some pics of the the chassis and electronics?

    It has already been mentioned elsewhere in this thread, we now estimate between 600 and 650 miles traveled.

    I do not have too many photos of the interior, but these two are a very effective and easy way to prevent splashing into the old 3906 model,
    only in the event of heavy snow blizzards I found moisture inside.



    the top should be flexible and exactly match the body inside. Currently are finished with sponge rubber.


    Differentials are locked with the spool diff traxxas specific to this model, coupled with a Robinson Racing differential gears and Mip CVD
    are a perfect set for this use, practically indestructible.

    I leave with you a photo of the last mountain hike this Sunday and 6 minutes of video on a path down a mountain
    with the camera along the TQ3.

    Looking for the best path to go down?. What path?


    This, I found it.



    6 minutes short video of the descent, but now the easiest part, within the path.

    Excuse the movements and quality, but was filmed while walking and driving the Emaxx in quite severe weather conditions

    destination, just behind that mountain lit by the sun, height 600m above


    Start climbing up the easy slopes of icy snow.


    Details of used tires; chains, screwed nails, enhanced profiles, emptying of 1 in 2.
