Looking good so far, and just the motivation I need to dust off my ole' maxx and have some fun. Been putting off my projects for too long now.
Mine have lasted me almost a year, which i'm fine with. I just don't want to buy a kit just for 1 part of it. Especially if it's a wear & tear item.
Check out the exploded view.
Noticed my pivot ball dust boots are torn up now, is it possible to get just the boots and not a whole kit? All i've found was http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXUTH5&P=7
Well that is a fail, market an item for the Emaxx and not even test fit it first? I still haven't installed my skids due to the lack of tranny coverage on the center skid.
Dremel with a sanding drum.
The manual says to use a garden hose or compressed air to clean it...As for me, the cleanest my truck has gotten was when I drove it through a puddle :p
I bought my 3903 from tower almost a year ago and it came with the TQi, no dock though. I just wish it worked with android devices :thumbdown: Otherwise i'd actually use it.
If your very new to the hobby, I would start with something a bit simpler like the Stampede. The Emaxx is fantastic, but it is also big, heavy, and a bit complex to work on...then again, that's half...
Looking forward to the video. :p
Big Bores, but change out the springs since the ones that come with the BB are the same as stock shocks, which are very soft.
Yea I recognize that guy, those bulk screws have everything for a Maxx truck? And are the stainless soft metal?
I know theres some guys over on the crawler forums that use them, they've all said good things.
I had a similar problem, I drove my Emaxx in snow twice in my yard, and all the screws and some of the metal steering linkage is rusting already. I've never had an RC rust this fast. I was thinking...
If you're looking for good piggybacks, I've heard great things about the Gmade ones.
Sounds like the 3906 model. Is the chassis black?
The user manual says to use a garden hose or compressed air. But the most i've ever cleaned mine was with an air compressor a couple times, so my Emaxx has 7 month old dirt crusted on. :p ...
The Onyx 245 is always a good choice.
Don't worry about the motors getting wet, brushed motors by themselves are already waterproof. Your receiver/esc/servos however are not.
I got the right parts, it's just like M n M's. I do a lot of "crawling" over rocks and logs so my underside gets beat up...somethings bound to get hung up in there eventually. I know i'm always...
Well I bought the RPM skid plates, and I don't like how it leaves part of the transmission uncovered, whereas the stocker covered it nicely. Kinda stupid of RPM to leave it exposed like that if you...
I've been irking to drive my maxx in snow...well we got a dusting yesterday and the truck is still broken.:thumbdown: I gotta get around to ordering new parts.
Yea I was concerned about the RPM flex, I would rather have a cheap and easy to replace tower break then something like the bulks. But there's still the bent shaft problems.
Already was planning...
Only took a head on collision with a horse trailer. Darn thing jumped right out in front of me:eek:
Two bent shock shafts...
You'll love the Emaxx if you get it, i've had mine for about 6 months now and only problem I've had was blown shock caps. But part of the hobby is breaking parts and upgrading.
