I'd be careful with sites your not familiar with on a big purchase, but my LHS had the X-Maxx down to $735 so they could offload it.
I haven't touched my heavily modified E-Maxx since I got the X in January!
Then I guess I would say save your money for now and buy an X-Maxx when possible :thumbup:
Take a look at the X-Maxx, I have hardly touched my E-Maxx since getting one!
Somehow lost my fusible link in the sea of packages I get and try to hide from my wife, :lol: , hoping Traxxas support will be able to send me another one! Sent an email to them today.
My LHS said...
Great truck, no where near on the same level as my fully customized E-maxx- the X is much better! Haven't broken anything yet, but I don't do crazy jumps or much concrete.
Nice work! This should be a solid E-Maxx, ever since I did the FLM chassis on mine it rarely breaks... but I also only drive it on 5s.
I'm curious about this also, I have an X-Maxx that will eventually get new electronics so I planned to move the stock stuff into my E-Maxx. I worry about what tt3 mentioned...how will the truck hold...
Just FYI, a hobby store in my area had a new one on sale for $699 cause they just needed to offload it.
Wow, $120 for the set... I think these will be a replace as they break part. No issues with my arms yet, but lighter weight does sound good.
Get SPC batteries, price and punch are excellent. I run a 2s and a 3s which provides perfect power.
Is the fusible link still the fix or will they be replacing ESC's completely?
The good thing is these trucks have only been out about half a year so the short history is in your favor. As long as all the electronics work and the diffs sound ok anything else you may have to...
You never know what may have been done to the truck in the past either, so don't assume it is all stock specifications, best of luck!
Are they all the same stiffness, just diff colors?
Nice work! keep us updated on how the truck holds up
I've been waiting for this post to show up...looking forward to your results. The weight of the setup could prove to be an issue but it really depends on what kind of driving you do with it
I would take a look at the leopard motors as well, ran them in my E-Maxx & X01 and they were strong
I agree the skill level is due to size and power.
But I will say my son finds it much easier to drive than my brushless E-Maxx.
I run 21/63 gearing on 5s which is plenty of speed but not has hard on the drive line as 6s. Check out the SPC batteries, they run strong and pricing is good
Cool look with the matching body's, wish I still had my XO...decided to sell it to fund my X-Maxx!
I went through 2 chassis until finally upgraded to aluminum. You will need to do the bulk heads eventually too.
I did the brushed conversion a few years ago and never changed the motor mount, gearing wise I run 21/65 and its seems to be a good mix of low end power and high end speed.
You may want to factor in the X-Maxx...for the size of truck and a price getting near the high end E-Maxx its worth thinking about. I love mine
