    yep spares
    i hope had to reuse the gasket the rrp8090 didn't have one! the other did

    didn't need any shims. started with .2mm in the pinion and .2 one the stock cup .was too tight ,took the pinion shim off ,then tried .1mm with no pinion shim ,then .1 on the pinion and no shim on the cup! then took that one off

    runtimes on my lipos only being 4000mah are 30mins+ each time.
    if you have the cash now to upgrade why not i upgraded only because someone broke my upper a arm on my merv so i picked up all the a arms and bumper. upgrades installing them is fun but then i always have to look at it when i am ready to run and say no its looking new again if i run its going to be all messed up again hahaha but part of the hobby that doesnt last i stick the pack in there and run it anyways.

    has anyone had a problem like this! when i assembled the front end when installing the summit axles the left side rubbed against the diff cup. the ring gear side has a bigger hole then the left side and was hitting . i opened it up a bit with the dremal and works fine now

    I was balancing the tires but some needed 12 grams of weight on one tire! need thicker lead tape!

    when i had my summit i did'nt see any rubbing issue in that area but, the previous owner use a longer grub screw pin and eat up the plastic around that area.

    Get the 8000 or the 50c's are a great deal. Shoot if I could I would get the 8000 for my emaxx though I don't think I would ever run that much mah so maybe the 6500 50c would audit me better and priced good as well.

    A stock E Maxx doesn't hold up well to 2/3s power..........
    Bulks, chassis, & shock towers all need upgrade.....

    The thing is I really like the look of the Maxx, but it just can't take a heavy beating........
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    i like that pic you posted know i see how much thick tread those trenchers have compared to the emaxx tire wow huge difference i see for me. I just like the trencher look the side walls and everything if i am going to move out in the bonnies then i need a tire like that then will be doing some rock crawling and a ton of dirt and mud more likely since the road is dirt well live on.
