    Wow that's fast. Let me know how you like them compared to badlands. I'm running mashers but was eyeing out some badlands. The regular trenches are too big, I'm gonna run them on another rig 1/8 scale.

    I'm also still trying to find the hr bell crank for my maxx

    Hey 50togo do those proline tires stink? i didnt smell anything when the package is closed but i hear when you open them up until you wash them they stink bad.
    what wheels are you putting those on? i like the look of those but i'm leaning to the trencher x's.

    I should of taken pics but I bent the wires back over the capacitor to keep from breaking then soldered them then shrink wrap and then 1/2" shrink wrap over the top. Should hold up good!

    nice wheels you choose there, same what i was going to pick i think it was those. I looked at a set online that were mounted to trenchers x's that were not too much. Havent found the need to tape just yet but i dont mind unglueing only thing i have a hard time is glueing just right.

    50 sent over a message to you.

    That was stock horn not stick. Spell check
    That new hole doesn't look bad for eyeballing it!

    Makes you wonder what stormer is thinking

    Installing the braces

    Now that looks stronger!


    I trimmed the horn so I had room to put a nut on the bolt and able to get a wrench on it!

    looking good on the chassis braces there. do you have plasti dip on your esc connector? looks like it from the second picture.
    Man you have too many CD's there. looks like over 1K!

    so the glitch buster is if you have a servo that requires high voltage right? I've heard of that and wondering if thats the only reason why you need one or am i missing something? I know you run a Savox servo single since its got x4's more than the stock 2075 has.

    I bought a few 4700uf 16v capacitors on ebay cheap and made my own. Worked good on the savox in the max didn't want to run the bec if I didn't have to. Now I have an extra for my revo
    !good to have to lighten the load off the esc making the servo more responsive. Cheap fix I made two stronger ones for the price of one novak glitch buster that is too small to.help

    More like.high.current like a savox 1231 turning. Drains so much power the esc shuts down

    So this makes no sense! The novak glitch buster didn't help and the 4700 16v I made works good but I just checked the novak and its a 5600 10v
    Go figure!

    Wow, your Maxx looks really good, you are a steller mechanic on your Maxx ! New Chasis braces look good with the blue color scheme and the servo along with the horn are perfect upgrades as well. I had my maxx out today and hit a "jump" off a snowpile, got about five feet airbourne, and as a result one of my stock servos gears stripped right out. I have to get an upgraded Servo. Its a must. I'm going to sell the four stock servos I have ( pair of the 2056 and a pair 2075 ) and get like a really really good , solid, strong servo. I want the absolute best. Anyone have any ideas? I'm just worried that as soon as I get it, i'll have a difficult time find a horn that works and a BEC or glitch buster that will make it work perfectly. Looking good 50 !

    thanks!
    save your money for a hitec! this savox is noisy and the hitec works fine without a bec or glitch buster .any aluminum horn for a hitec will work

    I agree with 50, I have a hitec hs7955tg on my roadmaxx. Also got the pc programmer for it whitch is pretty cool. No complaints i love it. Worked fine without a glitchbuster but i added one just for security.
