    What is that bar connecting your front and rear bulkheads together?

    Nice build! How are the integy arms holding up
    With all that aluminum I would think you would be using atleast 80wt

    larry0071 : that aluminium bar is here to prevent bending my shock tower ! hehe :P

    50togo : The integy arms is tuff enough... no problem, no cracks or bending...
    I know... with all that aluminium my truck is an heavyweight ! I will test with 50wt front & 60wt rear with ultra firm springs

    Nice looking rig and set-up. Yip, the bracing between the shock towers definitely helps. No more rear shock tower bending inwards.

    Mugs' embe

    Don't think he is around on these forums anymore, but have to give credit were credit is due, as my braces are a revised version of what petraeus did on his EMBE.
    Always get a 2nd Opinion!

    Those tires (Pro-line Badlands) are the best I used so far ! in any condition... street, grass, sand, gravel... maybe not mud :P but I don't even try. I don't see any cons... just pro !!

    In the second vid I use sand paddles (Pro-line Sling Shot). Good tires for the effects in the sand... but I was not able to climb the hill more than with the Badlands. So... for me, I think this is not a good purchase. Badlands for ever ! = : D

    I use my emaxx a lot in gravel and sand pits, and i found i could climb way higher with the center diff it really helps keep the front end down. I might try 60k diff oil in the sand pit just to see if it will climb any better.

    Another trick is to start fast and let off the throttle a little at the top if its a high traction surface. the truck has so much traction and power it just flips back over if you keep accelerating.

    Cool Maxx Adam, I will try the second option first... I try to climb fast, slow but i don't try to combine fast and slow :P
    What do you mean " i found i could climb way higher with the center diff it really helps keep the front end down" ? with another center diff ?

    Thanks for the advice

    So 20 days later how much of you integy stuff is bent? I hate to be the barer of bad new but you might want to start saving up for new replacement parts. If they all have lasted this long I would be impressed and I wouldn't expect much of it too last much longer. Here are some bulks from a few years ago that were never crashed and driven mostly at low speed.
    Found this searching for my pictures.

    Here are mine.




    You get the point.

    Yeah custmemaxx1, you might have completely reason... Integy make some crap things but you have to check for different quality. My bulkhead is forged aluminum... I never bent one but I bent some aluminum shock tower. This is the reason I put a brace between the 2 shock towers. You pay for what you get! :P

    Anyway, I bought FLM parts yesterday so I think my Maxx will be much stronger

    FLM10700 Low CG Chassis
    FLM17750 Ultimate Front Hybrid Bulk
    FLM18750 Ultimate Rear Hybrid Bulk
    FLM19000 Ajustable Shock Tower X2
    FLM11000 Bulkhead Braces Front & Rear

    I will keep Integy A-Arms cause it never bent or broke at the moment.

    I certainly don't wish you to brake any parts but I just try to spread the word. I can't believe that they are still in buisiness. I havn't seen anyone argue that Integy is anything but junk. But some how they still are selling parts every day! It just blows my mind.

    yeah! Integy parts look attractive, beautiful colors and specs are interesting but this is not the real deal ! :P When you put theses parts on your truck and do some bash...it don't last long ! I think Integy try to sell parts for a moderate use not for abuse :P but for a price that is a little bit too high! If you are a serious basher ... go with FLM but take your $$$ :P

    Looking good! Glad to help
    Here's a tip I picked up from emaxxbrushless - put the servo in from the top and reduces the angle of the link to the bellcrank!

    Thanks, UE makes nice stuff, but 525.00 or 625.00 is a lot for a chassis.
