    First, the picture needs to be uploaded to a web host; like photobucket, flicker, or even a locked folder on facebook (like I do). Then after it is uploaded; you view the picture online, right click, and select "copy image location". At this point you come back to the forum and select the third icon from the right; the one that says "image" when you hover over it, and paste your image location into the box in the popup, then click "ok". Then the picture will be shown like this:

    Ya, me niether. they probaly have to be resized to 480x600 pixles. upload them to your photo site (photobucket or whatever) and copy the direct link given by hovering over the pic. Then make sure privacy settings are public and just post the direct link on the forum and we can visit it like a normal web link insted of trying to embed them. only solution i can come up with.

    i didnt buy the maxx. i think the motors were just about to give up. not really alot of power left in them. i will probably just get a new one. the guys was wanting 300 i offered 225 and he said that he would go as low as 280 so for a little more change i will just go get a new one. what is the newest modle out.

    Yeah... I found a lot of that when I was shopping for a Summit. They started out at a decent price but once I added the cost of parts to get them up to snuff I was only $50-100 off from a brand new one--- with a warranty. lol

    I don't think Tower has a charger I would use...

    Here is what my buddy has done to his Maxx:
    RPM arms at all 4 corners
    RPM skids
    RPM bumpers
    Green seal bearings in the knuckles

    He is planning on getting a wheelie bar soon... he keeps tearing up the back half of his bodies from dragging them on the ground.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Ya, with stock ur basically just risking that weelie bar for nothing unless you like doing the reverse slam to drive thing, whitch is fine if you dont mind replacing the motors and slipper pads alot. not likely ur gonna damage the drive line with the stock power, maybe strip the wimpy 14mm hexs.

    I usually recommend an iCharger 106B or a 206B with a power supply... probably the last charger you will ever buy. Lots of power and really good software so batteries are treated nicely.

    But, if you just want something to get you by...
