    Thumbs up Just ordered a MODEL 39085 E-Maxx Brushless!

    Hey guys,

    I can't wait to get my hands on this truck. I am a huge Traxxas fan and am excited to be part of the E-maxx family.

    I ordered it today from TH.com w/$61 off coupon!

    Anyone else own one of the NEW MODEL 39085?

    How are they treating you?

    I only have 4 runs on the lipos. They do get better after 5 or 6 full packs.
    The last time i had the maxx out i got 40 min, with out hitting the cut off.
    Then again it all depends on how heavy your finger is.
    Make sure to brake in your slipper before you go all out.Slipper brake in the manual you get with your new maxx.

    Congrats! I love my 3908! I converted it to the mmm2. I have been averaging between 50-65 minute run times with my lipos. I run 5s most of the time it seems to be that happy medium for the truck. Plenty of power.

    Snowfighter- looks good!

    Thanks Aspengt. When the weather brakes here in NH i can get out and try out the Summit axles. Might be able to raise the punch control from 80% with out to many worries i hope.

    I love the roll cage, it weighs almost nothing so it doesn't effect the handling. And it's saved me from numerous repairs on a lot of bashing sessions.

    The 39085 has waterproof electronics.Go in the products page and click electric and then on the Brushless E maxx. There you will find all the info you are looking for.

    Great advice! I broke mine the first time out! I recommend immediately replacing both. RPM or FLM!

    Ah, Ok, I've already got a MM2 in mine. (fried my MM1 with a bit too much wet racing.)

    As to the rear shock tower breaking, yep, they bust fairly easy. However I found a carefully placed Zip tie adds enough extra bracing that they don't break as easy. (did 20 bashing sessions on my 2nd one and it did not break, finally installed an RPM one) for piece of mind.

    Congrats. Remember to take it easy for the first few packs to brake in the slipper with stock gearing.With 2s lipos or the nihm that come with your truck.
    Had my out for the 5th time today and got over 40min. of run time with a few speed runs up the road with two spc 2s 6500 lipos.

    Awesome! Remember lipo packs (if your getting new ones) Take a few charge cycles to break in. So the power and run time will increase after 5-10 runs.
    Man i need more than 50 characters.

    First thoughts? Man this thing is HUGE!!!





    Second thoughts? I LOVE IT!!! I am really impressed with the handling on this truck. Out of the box it is tuned perfectly.

    I didn't run it with the included batteries because I already had 2 5000mah 3s lipos ready to go! lol

    This truck is fantastic. It is the most refined machine I have ever purchased from Traxxas.

    A+++++

    Sure, you rate your new truck with A+++++, but what about your dog and cat. How do you rate them? When I got my truck years ago, it didn't come with house pets. I'll bet you that's the difference between a 3908 and a 39085. With the new 39085 Emax, you get officially certified Traxxas house pets. (lol)

    I can tell you this....my traxxas cats are very surprised how fast my maxx chasses them through the bushes. haha

    Didnt read thread, but if you get lipos you'll need better drive shafts.

    stock drive shafts on 4s.no issues.i believe it just comes down to throttle control.gotta roll into it.especially if running lipos.even recommended from traxxas.

    Punch control settings helps from snapping stock drive shafts. 100% Being easiest on drive line.

    I have / had them on for a season and worked great, BUT, I went and upgraded to the Aluminum ones as they give much more support to the bulkheads. The blue ones get stacked on top of the stock skid plates meaning you have one screw going through 2 plastic plates and into the plastic bulkhead and chassie. I chose to replace it with the aluminum after I broke the front and rear bulkheads. I LOVE RPM, but I don't like the design.

    So do you think that buying this RPM is a good way to protect the chassis?. A few days ago, I broke the front par of the Chassis and I donŽt want to do it again.

    Yes, if it is a MM2, you (by direction of Castle) are suppose to disconnect the fan from the receiver when using the truck in water/snow. If it is a MM1, you can't run your truck in water due to the MM1 not being water proof.

    I got mine about a month ago from tower hobbies with coupon also. So far is great! Took it to the sand dunes bone stock on 4s and did some jumps and did some pretty big crashes and also ran through some big puddles (got some okay videos).... Nothing broke so far! I was lucky to find some traxxas steel drive shafts at the hobby shop for $17!
