    Thumbs up My Emaxx Brushless build!!

    Alright guys. I was going to build a ERBE, but then I decided I wanted to build a EMBE. I'm starting from scratch, so it is going to take a while and i'm not the richest person in the world. So far I got a brand new chassis, proline trencher x tires on 1/2 offset desperado rims, a thunder ac6 charger, and a traxxas 2.4GHz transmitter and reciever.

    Alright over the past week I got my bulks and screw kit in. I would upload pictures but photobucket won't let me so maybe later. Any suggestions on what to order next?

    Get the brushless emaxx spec diffs f/r. Dont be fooled, all diffs are alittle different on all the different models, even if they look identical. You want the ones w the hd diff cup and x bracing w the side metal inserts. Also, aluinum skids to mount to aluminum bulks. That way you should be ok w stock chassis braces. Makes that weak link where chassis mounts to bulks stronger. Flm towers gives u some shock mounting options. Speaking of shocks, get some real good ones, its a very heavy truck, and most of us w them weigh them down w 2 big heavy batteries and most shocks cant handle it, not even bigbores. Id like 8 rear losi ten-t shocks myself. Check ebay. That should be enough for now!

    yea he is. The nitro truck diffs may look the same but they are not as durable as the brushles power. They just can't handle it. So buy e-maxx brushless diffs.

    as far as shocks go, I'd recommend a set of 4 ofna LX2 rear buggy shocks. They are way larger than stock and offer excellent damping with only 4 shocks required.

    Got the rc screwz kit today. Still doesn't look like it has all the screws. I guess I will find out when I actually open it up. For example I was looking for the servo mounting screws but couldn't find them.

    I know certain screws only are not included but i think the servo screws should be included. I think motor screws are not included which i just used my nitro engine mount screws and worked good. I checked mine today before running since i was taking vid didnt want something flying off lol.
