    Cool Emaxx flm-xl

    After selling my E-revo, decided to get another emaxx, so got a roller from ebay, and it came with a chassis extension. I decided to call it Emaxx FLM-XL.

    This piece adds 1.5 inch to the regular FLM chassis.



    FLM Bulkheads, FLM Shock tower, and to make it bulletproof Losi LST2 Diffs. A spacer is required to fit the losi diffs into the bulkheads. The collar also needs to be dremeled to fit the diff case.




    everything is in place, no binds, no gaps, the diff gears roll like butter

    New metal pads, 65 spur.


    Body is done. I know some tires are backwards, just wanted to see how it looks.



    Side to side with the regular FLM chassis.

    nice build - with that chassis extention mod you have a gap between the chassis and the rear bulk head assembly.

    just enough space to add a rear steering assembly
    simply mimick the front steering assembly and customize/fabricate as you go along.

    Nice bro. Looking into doing this mod! Tempted to buy the Fast Lane diff combo, but doing the LST2 mod would be allot cheaper.
    I've done the LST2 mod on my Erevo, and I've been bashing for almost a year with no diff issues!

    @Revoroller thanks.

    I decided to swap the shocks for the UE shocks, black spring on rear, blue ones at front with 70 wt oil all around it feels pretty solid.

    I have it, but went with traxxas motor mount instead, the flm motor mount makes the motor sits on one side (battery side) didn't like it that way, it takes too much room from the battery, also it makes that side heavier.

    That's what I was wondering also, I wasn't sure of how the holes lined up on the trans. I've seen some single vertical mounts somewhere.

    Some feedback on those UE shocks would be nice. Had my eye on them for a while now. Thanks.

    I really like your work, especially with the LST2 diff mod. If I built an eMaxx, this is definitely the way I would go. Do you have any pics of the diff from the side sitting in the bulkheads.

    What did you make your spacers from?

    Thanks.

    They work pretty good, I'll say 4 shocks is enough.

    the spacers are made from pvc, I'm thinking on another alternative for the spacers:
    1. Aluminum spacers, but have to find someone who can fabricate them for me.
    2. Custom made bulkheads to fit the LST2 diffs without needing the spacer
    3. Filling the gap on the bulkhead with some material so no spacer is needed.

    So far I love the mod, just spinning the tires by hand you can notice the difference.

    thanks for the comments.

    Your build has certainly opened my eyes to the eMAxx with your mods of the LST2 diff...I have become a fan of the FLM chassis to...and those UE Shocks look awesome.

    Do you do much big air jumping with these rigs? I'm thinking of one to go alongside my eRevo.

    It hasnīt seen big air, pretty much everything is flat around here, and there is no bmx tracks or parks to do it. I mostly run of road, on grass, and dirt.

    Got a new body for it.

    From left to right, hpi savage flux XL, the on in the middle is an emaxx ( looks small between the big boys), and the one to the right the emaxx XL.

    Really Nice. I do not know much about the one on the left, how do you find it compares to the EMX? (PM if you like to avoid any potential issues on this discussion, but for interest sake keen to hear your thoughts)

    hey couple quick questions for you. I've been eyeballing the monoblock for quite sometime now and wanted to see what you thought...do you like running with it? with the FLM extended chassis and the monoblock extension there is an added ~3" if i'm correct.

    1. are you still able to wheelie that thing?
    2. would you be able to tell me what dog bone (length) you used for the front and rear drive shafts since the ones that come with the FLM chassis will be too short now.
    3. is the body that you used (the f650) a regular emaxx body? I'm at 13.5" center-center for the wheels and the monoblock would add another 1.35" or so making it almost 15" and most bodies i see are for around 12-12.5"

    OH and thanks for making me want to finally register haha

    thanks!

    Welcome to the forum.

    I'll be glad to answer all your questions, once I get back home from a vacation trip. I don't have the truck with me can not do the measures. The body is a f650 for the emaxx, also have a gmc topkick for the savage xl, booth fit good.

    The more I look at your thread the more I want to build myself one...got myself some spare Losi LST2 difs on hand that I could use for this project.

    ok...

    1. Yes it will do wheelies without problems, even my HPI savage XL which is larger do wheelies.
    2. The front is stock FLM dogbone (68 mm), the rear is HPI (142 mm)
    3. The F650 body fits great, even better than on the stock FLM length chassis, it is for the emaxx, and the length of the body is 20". You are totally right on the measures, the stock FLM chassis is 13.5", and with the monoblock it stretches to 15"
