This is my first time painting a body. The masking didn't go as well as I would have liked. I had a little painting running under the masks for the flames, but I still think it turned out OK for my first try.

Here is my brand new T-Maxx. Just got it a few weeks ago and have only run about 1/2 gallon through it so far.
I took the Clear TXT body I had lying around and painted it up for the T-Maxx. I also mounted some HotBodies Padlock tires and a new RPM front bumper. But other than that It's all stock.
Notice the front window has been completely cut out and replaced with a nylon screen. A guy at my LHS gave me the idea. I think it looks great!
Here's my Sportmaxx with 2 speed upgrade, 4 Trinity Black Springs, Traxxas Tuned Pipe and Sporttraxx tires mounted on Chrome Sportmaxx wheels.
Playing around on some leftover sand.
Gettng some air at the local track.
Bashing on the homemade pvc and masonite ramp...it's portable!
Looking cool on the DiggerMaxx Style Stand (get the plans HERE)
window cut out with window screen shoe gooed to the inside

Hope you enjoy....

its been a while since I updated my picture here. It looks nothing like it did when I bought it almost 5 months ago. I just finished painting my first body on it 2 days ago. Check it out.
And a pic of my favorite part.......the skull skid plate.
I like this pic of 1 of my Es and 1 T
4 MAXXES, 2 "T"s & 2 "E"s and now 3 REVOs, 2 Buggies & 2 18th Brushless
with all the other pictures, I figure I should show mine:
it's basically a stock original T maxx, other than widemaxx front suspension, custom rear limited slip differential, custom front skidplate, custom throttle servo mount(broke both ends ears off somehow) it's not shown in the picture, but it's just a chunk of the same aluminum I used for the skidplate in a 1" strip wrapped around the servo, pretty simple, oh, and it has RPM wheels, which I keep forgetting about since it came with them, I got it used for $200 back in april(it was stock back then), I have the stock wheels too, just need to find some money to spend on a second set of tires...
about the skidplate, you probably realized it's pretty thin aluminum, I'm aware of that and it does bend pretty easy, I found some really hard steel sheet metal(heat treated) and made a chunk to go in the important part of the skidplate, so it's basically indestructable underneith, and the angled part is rolled over on the edges so that gives it some strength(came up with that idea after the pictures were taken), and wrapping it around the bumper adds quite a bit of strength too, and smooths it out, it's been a work in progress
the body is as low as it can go without hitting the bumper mounts(it's been trimmed since the picture so it doesn't hang below the front bumper anymore), well it's actually resting on them, but it works, I busted a front shock tower with the body up higher, and the body mounts got bent backward with it up higher, so I decided to lower it a bunch and it's worked great since, oh, and there's a lot less paint on it now too, I decided to stop caring what it looks like and just beat the snot out of it
