    unless you buy all the extra sensors from traxxas. the emaxx brushless edition does not come with all the sensors installed. like RPM AND SPEED, MPH, VOLTAGE. if you go up to the top on this page and click on (Products) then on the right side click to look at the (Transmitters) and at the bottom of the list it says TQI Telemetry. click that and that will explain everything that you have to do to get your truck hooked up and working with your transmitter. hope i helped

    Thanks Davy, when its coming out of the box no time to read, when there's playing to be had!!!

    I found info, found what i need ,thanks a bunch, just so much activities!

    I also found that the docking base made the experience better as I jammed to some tunes on my iPhone as I wash bashing up my street. Can't believe in 40!

    no problem baddad, the only car that comes out of the box with all the telemetry is the XO-1. its pretty pricey when your looking to get all that telemetry stuff. there are wiring harness's and a bunch of extra stuff along with just the sensors and i also believe for the rpm sensor you might have to get a different gear box cover due to the extra component in there but i am not 100% sure about that.

    if you are an overall basher and arent worried about speed too much much just look into a radar gun and a IR heat gun. old school haha

    Welcome to world of e-maxx. I bought my first one about 8 months ago. Did a lot of upgrades to it and liked it so much I built another one from scratch with just about all the best strongest parts and modifications you can do one of these things. Have fun with it.

    First thing I got was wheels and tires, brushless power and li po's ripped my tires pretty quick. I just order some mashers on desperado wheels, seems to be a good in btween to trenchers and badlands. they should also last a long time as well. the 1/2 offset makes the truck a little more stable.

    You may have to tighten your slipper, mine was way to loose and I wore it out in a few days.

    Yeah I can't wait! It will be here tues. thanks for the push Mr. Davy!

    Look like I may need some shock towers and a body in a week or so. Played pretty,hard last couple days!


    Yeah Tarus I got a A.R. Drone I love.and my dad is hot and heavy into airplanes, I use to play with an old nitro from another company . I will eventually cave into planes but got to have a truck to pull the trailer plane will be in. Thought about another nitro car but this brushless is so awesome and much cleaner, much cleaner. Plus I can take it out in morning without ticking off the neighbors.
