Good afternoon all.
After buying first one and then soon after a second E-Maxx this summer, and spending all my dough upgrading, I finally manned up to write my first post after reading thousands.
My BL-converted 3903 basher has been upgraded with Trenchers, RPM arms, RPM bulkheads, Big Bores, T-Bone bumpers and wheeliebar - and probably a ton of other goodies. But thats not the issue - I just needed you to understand why I am even pondering the following silly project.
See - I bought a spare 3905 and stripped it down to the smallest components, as I wanted to use it as spare parts. Eventually I assembled it again and here the story starts. I wanna do something different with this one - not just have another basher.
Sooo....I'm gonna go 6S via either a Mamba Monster or the (Hobbywing) Yakuza Boss 160 Sensored M6 combo. I've already shorted the shocks, and installed the next-to hardest integy springs. I got my hands on some nice Pro-line Road Rages and the 17 mm hex conversion. I will gear it with 28/65 which should top me out at 65 mph (~100 kph).
Here is what I got at the moment:
Now, obviously I am thinking in the lines of a road-going 2nd E-maxx - and how to make this a fun build, and gain something "different". Other ideas are RWD for drifting, locking the rear diff for moar drifting, stupid(tm) slick tires, etc.
What do you guys think, and do you have any other ideas - or inspiration you are willing to share. I know that the driveshafts and the rear diff will be sore points, but im hoping that slick tyres and a feather light triggerfinger will help.
