    My new EMBE

    I picked this truck up as a roller with all the aluminum and RPM upgrades already installed. The truck was practically new with 2 runs on it.. I also got all the stock parts for the truck another set of tires and wheels. A brand new Tmaxx 3.3 transmission and brand new T maxx chassis. All for 320.00 shipped! I wasnt going to let this one get away I had bought a MM off ebay a while back waiting on a deal for a Maxx roller to come along. This is what I ended up with







    Im currently running 2 Gens Ace 50c 5000Mah 2s lipos. It runs really well now that I got the bugs worked out of the esc. I purchased some Sky 40c 4000mah 3s lipos so those will be here sometime this week... Cant wait!

    The cage is from rc solutions. Extremely light and very durable. Only problem is on the back part of the "cab" on the cage is when you flip the truck over the cage pokes through the body. But other than that its a great cage. I'd recommend this one over the welded tube kind

    Also I don't have the body sitting right on top of the cage so that is my fault as to why the cage makes holes I'm the body lol

    My truck is a brushless edition roller with a brushed Maxx body. So I am assuming everything is the same

    I don't know why I said 3905 that's the older chassis I lent 3903. Either way this cage fits both 3908 and 3903. Same specs for both

    Bought a few things last night. Got a new esc fan mine took a dump, got a wheelie bar and the rubber tires for it. And some new body mounts cause I can't put the body pins in anymore they are so tore up lol and last I got the rubber body clip retainers. Next couple things I'm getting will most likely be some tires and wheels and a new body.

    Has anyone tries to run clod tires and wheels on a Maxx yet?

    According to my tape measure from the front bulk head mounting holes to the rear bulk head mounting holes I got 17 3/4 inches. Give or take a fuzz. I couldnt get the tape measure down in there real good. Dont want to take it off cause its kinda time consuming lol. I really dont know why they would say it doesnt fit. Im curious to find out as well. Let me know when you find out.
