    Nice radio. Congrats!!!

    Just make sure you reverse the throttle position on your radio and set the failsafe to 0% throttle.

    I know ! I read with attention all your posts (and other) about the 3PM settings for the 3905 E-Maxx

    And the failsafe function is just for HRS Mode (I use the PPM mode because I have the stock non-digital servos).

    Some black zip ties With my future black chassis I prefer to use black stuff (the harmony of colors... ).

    Looks great! How much more stuff are you waiting for before it is "finished" (they are never finished)

    Finished.... to install my new radio of course

    I'm waiting for 2075 servos and after my E-Maxx will be really finished (humor ).


    And at the end of the year : lipo ! I will buy the Hyperion Duo charger with two pairs of batteries (7.4V 2S2P 8000mAh at least). But I don't know yet which ones.

    Hopefully you'll get that fixed today. I can't go two days without running and if the truck is broke I can't sleep until it's fixed.

    Bad luck about the servo, I did that once to a 1/4scale item from hitec, wasnt best pleased. Metal gears servos are so much betterr- they dont need to be massively powerful to turn the truck, but metal doesnt break like plastic does...

    You can still set the failsafe in PPM mode while using analog servos. I used it before shifting to all-digital servos. Go to page 24 of your manual. The procedure is at the bottom of the page and reads like this,

    " How to Set the F/S Position (PPM mode)
    PPM mode only:
    *HRS mode: Set the F/S function by the fail safe function menu.
    1. Move and hold the throttle trigger to the F/S servo
    position you want to set (slow side). Then push the
    F/S switch on the transmitter.
    *The LED blinks green.
    Note: Always set the F/S position when turning on the transmitter power."

    just a suggestion if your really trying to make the ultimate basher why are you going to run traxxas servos specially being they have plastic gears. you could get a set of tower pro servos which are cheaper(2 for $25 free shipping) more powerful(200 in/oz) metal geared and all around a better servo. did i mention their also digital. and then spend a couple buck buy some plastidip to waterproof them and have a pretty much indestructable servo. i been running them for while in a couple of my rigs prolly like 3 years now with no issues. and i like to run through thick mud and 2 foot deep stream

    Do an ebay search for 'MG995, MG996r', that will give you the desired results; ********* has them too, though some models are stronger than others, torque wise.

    That's true, Traxxas servos are not the best for hard bashers...... and bad drivers But if you are a hard basher who drives well, Traxxas servos are excellent ! I use the Traxxas 2056 stock servos and I have never broken them... until a bad jump (which brought about a bad landing ). It was my fault.
    So I'm going to buy another Traxxas servos (the 2075'), with this spare part : http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...3&I=LXSGU0&P=K. I love the look of my E-Maxx with 2 servos. And if I buy aftermarket servos there will be problem of servo horns adaptation.
    Maybe it stupid, and sure there are lots of stonger and more powerful servos, but I love my Traxxas servos. It's my choice

    Thanks for your recommendation

    Whatever you do, please don't buy those Towerpro 995MG servos. Sure they're digital and claim 200oz-in and a sub .16 transit speed, but I've heard far to many horror stories about centering and overshooting issues, along with a short lifespan before the gears break or the motor dies to recommend them. Two Hitec 625MG's or TRX 2070's to replace your 2056's would be great, or if you wanted to go with a single servo set-up, a Hitec 645MG should work as well.

    Also, your shock socks are meant to have the ends tucked under the spring where it meets the retainer. Looks much cleaner that way.

    BTW, this is the best E-Maxx I have ever seen. Love reading your build thread.

    I sure wish I had that kinda terain to drive my trucks on. All I have around here in Ohio is flatlands. There's not even a track within 2 hours from me. Closest RC track is 2.5 hrs away

    The city I live in has about 60,000 people...not even a hobby shop here Closest one is an hour away.

    However, should be getting a house August 1st..big back yard. I'm thinking of taking up 1/4 of it for a track.

    Also, after getting settled in I'm thinking about starting my own RC shop here. I just cant see how a hobby shop would do bad..

    Anyways, awsome truck. I enjoyed the step by step with pic's and vids.
    E-Maxx 3905, E-Savage, Summit! Lots of batteries!

    Finally, I broke more than 2 servos... I broke also the head of 3 titanium screws. I managed to remove one of the screw, but it's mpossible to remove the others



    Because of two screws, I'm obliged to buy new rear bulks

    I noticed that the titanium screws of the bulks often break rather than bend. What about alu screws ? They bend or break ?

    I need your experience

    Video bonus !

    Here is a very short vid of one jump + a nice trick in a natural ramp

    Link : http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=RvIcSSF7teo.

    (I hate the websites which host the vids and which reduce the quality of the vids ).
