    Thats a bummer 50, I havent used powerstrokes or summit shafts so no expiriance with that combo, I would have tried to clue you in. Maybe time for those tvr ball shafts you were talking about. They look sweet.

    Those new shocks look awesome as well. You've got the top notch parts, and I would also agree an say that those shocks should be reproduced, i'm sure they'd be hot commodity.

    3 of the shocks was low on oil. Didn't see any leaks
    Look how big the shafts are compared to big bores!
    I used some shrink wrap to keep the dust boots on!
    They do look nice!
    Softer springs then what I am running now

    they have people that are texting while working and talking on the phone so they dont watch where the package is suppose to be sent to. they send packages to certain areas then go to another place then finally to the local post office is what i have been told. sometimes they just get scanned and it doesnt get scanned right and it messes up. People error here more likely not valuing their JOB!!!

    LOL yeah i see it at ups as well sometimes but not only mail places but all over the place i see it.

    50togo- I am liking those skids on there very nice with the rpm on there too. about how much more weight would you say it adds? i know the mmm system will haul it and all but what about landing with the added weight is what i am thinking, this should be right around bullet proof or should i say break proof just about.

    Front skid adds only 30 grams but strengthens another weak spot on the maxx
    T bone adds 57 grams

    Following emaxxbrushless's tip on battery boxes i picked up some kershaw battery boxes. I countersunk them using the three predrilled holes because they are stronger!


    Now that I have a flat surface (like the revo) I put some velcro on the battery boxes and body. No more body clips!

    well atleast the waiting is letting you get ideas to add to the new chassis. I got a email from tower yesterday for $25 off $50 again telling me they miss me or should i say miss my money lol. hard to decide what to get when it goes over alot, i can get a set of wheels free like that shoot unmounted then get some glue but still is not enough its like 32-34 all shipped not bad i would say. its not for my emaxx really well maybe 1 thing i have to get.

    Heh, I get those emails all the time, I only see them worth it if your buying a huge item or alot of stuff. The shipping prices they have are higher than others.

    That's the only good thing!
    That's a good deal at tower
    Was going to put the drive cups I took off my buggy when I noticed one has a hairline crack at the grub screw. Good thing I looked close!

    How do you like those new battery trays? I thought they were perfect for the chassis.

    my anty said it could be weather related why the post office is delaying alot of packages i dont watch tv lol so cant say for sure but she said its not the post office that she knows since she works for them in the bay area.

    flat rate shipping means they are not charging you for ordering more stuff say you order 10 things or 5 things its the same rate cost which is nice if you order alot of stuff but for like 2-3 things then its not so good.
