    Some E-Maxx Damage

    Was playing with my E-Maxx at work today, running in our Aircraft hanger pretty fun floor is polished so really slide around alot big fun can drift an E-Maxx all day, until you slide under a trailer and smack the trailer axle. I was probably running half speed at the time just due to you can run full speed on this surface is just like ice.

    Good Stuff


    Ouch


    Might should have turned to the left instead…




    Bulk head cracked and busted


    Bent my sway bars

    I think a little 1/10 TC with slick drift tires would be awesome for use on a polished floor like that, perhaps one of traxxas's vxl based items per chance?...

    very easy to fit the bumper.. just cut the summit bumper mount.where it bends around so that the part the bumper screws to was still there and screwed it to the stock e-maxx bumper mount.. will post pictures when i do the rebuild..


    No it did not break the chassie, only bulk heads..

    How do you like the sway bars? I'm new to the sport and I've been looking for E-MAXX 3908 BL swaybars and haven't seen them until this post.....

    here is a little how to.. I am sure it can be done better but hey it is a start..

    the stock summit bumper mount I cut.

    It is broken from the wreck but i am gonna use it until i get another bumper mount.

    Summit bumper mount on E-maxx bumper mounts.






    very clean fit, and space between truck and bumper looks correct.




    The rear bumper.. The body is cut where I had it mounted on my E-Revo so it would clear the wing. no need to cut the body to make summit bumper fit.




    Very easy install. Works great and the light are a big help at night..

    Thanks for the pics, I think I may do this. I need some lights and its either the summit bumper or some leds of ebay. I like the ebay leds, just dont know where to mount them.

    Hi There,

    RPM arms held up? I got tru track on my E/T's but stocks up front, i've only broke one lower arm so far, head on collision of 2 emaxx. since I've added aluminum bulks I add the rpm to the front,

    The thing is so they really offer free replacement if you break them? if not i might stick with the stocks I can buy a full set for the price of 2 rpm's, although my slash has had RPM for 2 years nothing and i've had some wild crashes on the track

    Nice bumper tale makes me wish I was driving my maxx right now. Recently sheared one of the front bumper screws that go into the bulkhead no plastic broken, oi.
    Can't drive it, leading me insane, dream it!
