I think another way of looking at it is by thinking of real car engines.
You get small block V8's and you get big block V8's
They could both be 4.0 litre engines, but the actual dimensions of...
Checked out the CB and there is absolutely no resistance at all.
This weekend I'll play more with the tuning.
aaah thanks...will check it out :)
Thanks...I'll try leaning out the HSN a little and then turning the LSN again...if that fails I'll look at the plug.
Funny thing is that the idle is as slow as it will go, but the truck still...
That is how i did start tuning the LSN, but when the pinch test is applied and correct, the pull acceleration is very very sluggish and only once the revs are quite high does the t-maxx seem to come...
I'm having trouble tuning my 2.5R and I'm hoping it's not at the end of its life yet because compression seems good.
Basically I tune as per the manual, starting off at factory settings, and then...
I'm situated at a power sapping 1500m above sea-level so I reckon the figures I got in my car are quite decent
0-60 in 7.9s
1/4 mi. in 16.4s
Car is a Renault Clio and makes 125hp at the wheels...
Tower have the 3.3 Maxx at about $482...take a look on the just announced page
Traxxas Just Announced Page :D
Maybe, but if that doesn't come out you can always just buy the upgrade parts from the Traxxas shop or wherever sells Traxxas stock:)
There are quite a few differences between the T-Maxx 2.5R and T-Maxx 3.3 and these include
- Revo spec drive shafts
- Different gearing in the tranny
- Revo tyres
and of course the...
You could exchange a brand new engine if you really wanted to:)
Hehe, I did the exact same thing, including a link to the ERP page:p
Have a look at my $600 thread.
Nitronaught gave a few good ideas on what to upgrade, and then when the time comes just throw in a 3.3 and your maxx will be ready for it
Well I already have the Traxxas FOC, Big Bore shocks and 50wt oil with Trinity black springs I have $94 for other stuff:D
I've just seen on the homepage that there is a TRX 3.3 which got me...
I've got $600 to spend on my T-Maxx 2.5 and that includes a bigger more powerful engine and whatever is needed to support that engine so it doesn't rip the truck apart.
Any change can be spent on...
Any suggestions of diffs then?
Would a spool in the rear diff be a bad idea?
Thanks...good point on the spur gear:)
I've been looking on Towerhobbies...Now to find a friend who also wants to make a big purchase and we can save on shipping.
I think I'm gonna stick with...
You think I'll need new gears too?
I've got a Traxxas FOC conversion done, and from what I've heard, the stock tranny is pretty tough.
I was planning on maybe getting a hardened steel spur...
I saw this kit for $244.95
Link to Maxx Big Block Conversion
1. Ofna .25 Force Engine w/Pullstart
2. Racer's edge lightweight chassis
3. Steel Rear Drive Shaft
I'm about this close --> <-- to getting a big block conversion done on my t-maxx.
I've been giving the Ofna .26 MAX engine a good looking at as it's priced okay and is a straight drop in (well...
I bought my maxx second hand from a racer who'd moved on to Revos.
It cames supplied with Both those shocks and the ones installed were the Big Bores...I think that is saying something:)
Very good choice...looking good in that Blue.
I also picked that body:D
My Cuda Maxx
I read that it was
4 turns for the HSN
LSN screw to be flush.:D
Although that setting made my engine run at 350F :o , really had to richen the HSN by about 2.5 turns.
But surely AWD will get the T-maxx off the line quicker than the RWD S-maxx?
Because it's a 23cc and the TRX motor is 2.5cc...almost 10 times smaller.
