    yeah i know what you mean i dont prefer so much alum so i will do my best to not have any if at all possible. Running my emaxx and merv is more of a stress reliever than anything right now.

    Hey 50, that is some serious damage you daughter picked up. Always sad to see someone's rig broken. Hope you manage to get it fixed soon.

    Thats a bummer 50, Some alum skids might have saved it. Integy actually makes some pretty good titanium ones.

    The tbone would help but the plastic skids holding it all together is definetly a weak point on the maxx. I,ve seen pics of a few of them on here in two pcs. I have some tbones, i dont much care for the look of them but from what i read they work good.Might put them on my basher.

    Looks sweet! Now you have a little work to do. Thats what my roadmaxx started out as. I put the chassis braces on it and leaned it up against the wall and admired it for weeks untill i started buying all the rest of the parts. A little heavier but it wont break.

    ooh man i thought this build/switch over was done and you posted the completed product? j/k. its good that tmaxx stuff fits and to have those extra. I know i didnt buy a extra set of skids because i thought since mine is doing so good right now i wont need them later on well i should have been getting some parts for the emaxx for later use.

    That is a nice chassis and braces for sure.

    Mate...what your thoughts so far on that chassis? A worthy upgrade...I am toying with the idea of getting myself one.

    Yes. Dog bones and cups. Although they are stock size my pinion is 8mm

    I use this foam in my erbe and merv
    Would be better if it was one piece but this foam is pretty dense and hard

    Do you have the traxxas center cvd? Had an issue with my FLM ones popping out cause they are short. Got some traxxas cvd's and it's too long lol.

    I measured the chassis to the stock one. Seemed pretty close

    Stock is telescopic though, right? Looks like I may have to take the truck apart to figure this out?

    Thats great! Sounds like a good idea. Once she starts wrenching on it, she might go a little easier on it too. But now that its much stronger she might not.
