    Hey hurley747, thanks for all the info!!! Today, I was able to try it for the first time... I've been reading a lot and trying a few softwares until I found two that I like... This is the video of the first run:



    I have to run many more tests before I actually do something useful but I'm on the right track... I'm so happy!!!

    Yup, I will practice a few more days/weeks with the pen... Then I will start with some acrylic sheets and they I'll work with aluminum... It's going to take some time, but I'm confidet I'll make something nice...

    Yeah... I'm afraid I don't have time anymore to finish my custom projects... Maybe some day I'll go back and finish it...

    You know, I would really like to finish it soon, I'm only missing the two custom chassis braces and that's it, it's simple, but I need time to run a few tests on the CNC machine and I don't have it right now... And the guy who did all the previous parts is no longer working for me due to a few misunderstandings... I'll see what I can do, I already spent too much time and money to leave it unfinished...

    When you finish it you should sell the blue prints to people if they want to build their own
    I blame it all on speedpede09

    My point of view in this hobby was not and will never be business related... When it's done I can give the plans for free...

    I haven't had the time to make the two lower chassis braces, that's the only thing I'm missing... Soon...

    Not right now because it's disassembled... But, here's a chassis comparison, Mini-Maxx on the left, full size T-Maxx in the middle, full size E-Maxx on the right...

    Not yet, but pretty soon, I left the vintage area for a few weeks to go back to all these projects, I'm working hard to finish them now... Btw, have you seen my latest project?

    Finally, I designed the chassis braces... I drew them like 10 times over the past few months until I got something I like...



    Will be done in aluminum 7075, same as the chassis, but 8mm thick instead of 4mm...

    Hopefully I will have them by next week, the CNC shops (I'm using two) are not busy now (summer time here) and they are working fast...

    I like it, are going to have any of it Anodized? Or a straight up polished build?
    Look out for the tree/crunch!

    LiPo? Naw NITRO!!

    Yes, the chassis, the battery trays, motor mount and steering posts are already anodized in silver, check a few pages back... The chassis braces and battery tray posts will be anodized too...
