Thanks jordan... I saw in your nice build thread that you like the dark shells too
Here are the options that I use in my E-Maxx currently
I resolved the problem with my Futaba 3PM receiver ! I had connected in the wrong way the wire between the ESC and the receiver
I tested on-road my new setup it works perfectly ! No steering problem : no bzzz, no crrrr, no sriii : And in fact the body posts of the steering bellcrank prevent the chassis braces that I have dremeled from bending (I hope !).
With the FLM center driveshafts my E-Maxx makes a different noise more smooth And with the new thick shock oil, when I landed after a jump, there is also a different noise : bom rather than kling (noise of the ti skidplates which touch the ground ).
I'm waiting for the Gorillamaxx straps and the FLM 3906 center skid plate and I will be ready for bashing
I will post an on-road video tomorrow (yes yes on-road ) !
Long life to Traxxas E-Maxx ! (yes I know mine is not very "stock"...).
i just noticed your upgrades did not include anything to do with the diffs? so im assuming your having no probs whatsoever?
Exactly ! I never encountered problems with the 3905 and 3906 stock diffs
Maybe I'm lucky because lots of people upgrade their diffs
I never had issues with the old tmaxx3.3 spec diffs, when I was running the hvmaxx 6.5 system- it just isnt that 'violent' towards the diffs. With the more powerful systems using neu motors and such, you soon start asking questions about diff upgrades... One plus to the hvmaxx- good speed without brutal power that kills the diffs.
READ THE FAQ!

New vid !
The first vid of a 3905 FLM E-Maxx : http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=u4zw64BbH0k
Nothing outstanding, just wheelies, very little jumps and skiddings
I can't wait to receive the straps and the skidplate to go bash !!!
glad to see that you dont encounter any probs with your diffs. but just like sui neil says, the hvmaxx is more tamed compared to those more powerful motors. i got to see that in your onroad video. but when its offroad, it seems plenty fast. keep up the great work.
Yeepee !! I received the Gorillamaxx straps and the FLM 3906 center skidplate :
After 5 minutes (easier than the chassis assembly) :
Let's go bash !!!!! I will post a vid tonight
New vid !!
The first bash session with my FLM E-Maxx It was great !!
Vid : http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=xP5DLXbs-bo.
Note : don't forget to click on the "regarder cette video en haute qualité" button below the vid to watch it in high definition
The FLM chassis handles well !! Despite all the crashes I bent nothing
And no problem with the chassis braces despite the dremel work ! Good investment finally
However the Gorillamaxx straps sucks, and the rear turnbuckles too (I break them both every session ). I'm going to buy the Traxxas option turnbuckles and stronger straps !
oh wow that is a lovley place to bash. where in france are you?
Salut popoxx, très jolie machine que voilà ! Pour les straps je prendrais des modèles assez longs afin de pouvoir fair le tour complet des compartiment d'accus non ? J'avais fait un sujet là-dessus sur MMT
edit : sympa ton spot en plus, exactement comme je les aime... mais attention aux arbres assassins !

I live near Paris (~20 km), in a city surrounded with forests I took this vid in a moutain bike track that I found in a forest some months ago !
But my favorite place is the Fontainebleau forest (~100 km from my home). I can climb and run my E-Maxx there it's great
Everytime he post one of these vids I get envious of his bash site.
E-Maxx Neu1515 1y/MGM 5s
love the bash site,completely awesome.
FERRITE RINGS PM ME!
Thanks all It's true I'm lucky, all these forests for me and my E-Maxx
Salut beetlebiz, c'est sympa de voir un autre frenchie (on doit être 3-4 ici ), mais parle en anglais si tu peux sinon tu vas te faire engueuler (t'as un lien sur MMT ?).
Translation : welcome beetlebiz, it's great to see another French here (we are 3 or 4 on this forum ), but speak in English if you can because you are going to get into trouble (you have a link for your thread on MMT ?).
Great vid !!!! One of my favorite songs. Got to love the foo fighters!! My maxx is a tree magnet, I could not go near that place. Good job.
Ever hear this? That toy truck cost how much?!?!
Popoxx, i have to go near Paris, in Senlis
Is it near your home ?
Traxxas E-maxx 3905 HV 6.5
Im not sure the optional traxxas tubes will be much stronger than the stockers since they are aluminium, I would look into something from Lunsford maybe.
The gorillamaxx straps do suck abit yeah- you can buy more heavyduty items from ebay, look for velcro straps, or velcro brand straps.
I am SuicideNeil, please dont shoot.
71 km from my home...Originally Posted by forgefeu
Finally I bought the RPM True-Track system Thanks for the link thoughOriginally Posted by thedude
For the straps I'm going to buy thicker backpack straps
Thanks Rnemhrd My E-Maxx is also a tree magnet but this is the trees which are afraid of my Maxx, not the contraryOriginally Posted by Rnemhrd

You have a belt and an E-Maxx ? So you can do that :
It was really easy to make these straps
Now it's time to meet new trees !!!!
I received the RPM True-Track system and the Integy rear bumpers (yes I said Integy ) !
Now I think I ended to upgrade my E-maxx (I know I said that often...), but there is another type of upgrade I have to do : lipo ! (for Christmas ).
Here is the ultimate option list for bashers (ANY TERRAIN. ANY CHALLENGE. MY TRUCK ):
It's time to buy new truck ? ...
Wow very nice bash site and jumps with good landings. I especially liked the part where you messed up a landing, tumbled a bit, and then it was straight onto another jump like nothing happened! haha good work.
And your option lists looks pretty similar to what I have installed on my truck, but 3906 spec. Works really well!
when you took the anodizing off, did you have to do any polishing with the dremel, or just let the parts soak?
Thanks anson The bash session of this weekend was cool too I "met a tree" and I broke a part of the steering bellcrank system. But of course I had a spare part
jkelly2900 : I just put the parts in the water to rinse them and I clean them with a rag. But if you remove the anodizing of a big part, you can sand it with a thin sandpaper (or appropriate dremel tip) and polish it to have a cool look
good truck !
bashing powaaa !
Bon courage pour la suite ami Français !
New Vid - Skate Park Session !!
My first Skate Park session : http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=Wb2t-WHFzGU
That was great There were lots of people who were amazed by the power of my truck and what it could do There were also "all pro" people who said to me that their RC cars (bought at Toys"R"Us) were as powerful as my E-Maxx
Watch the whole vid there is a nice jump at the end And you will notice some slides on the half-pipe
I just destroyed the front RPM skid/wear plate and one rear lower arm... I "encountered" a wall For a "concrete session" it's not bad
I must say that looks sweet. Me I just run at construction sites and areas for new home construction.
Where'd that tree come from?!?!?!?!?!
You shure have an sick e-maxx their..hoe do you like your 6-cell GP 3300 ? what kinda run times are you getting with them
Great truck good to see some one build up a real basher not a shelf queen
MMM/FLM 3905 E-Maxx
popoxx, how do you like the shock setup? what wieght oil are you running? does it bottom out alot?
Emaxx 3905 FS in the market place.
ho-ju : Thanks
traxxas basher : thanks My 6-cell GP3300mAh batteries are the best Nimh batteries I know, they are powerful, durable and reliable. For bashing I get 25-30 minutes with one pair and 15 minutes for racing. But they are old now, I'm going to buy 2s lipo batteries
trxbeast193 : my shock setup is really appropriate for my driving style. I use the Traxxas big bore shocks with Mugen Shock Oil 600Cst (= ~50Wt) for rear and front. But obviously, with the jumps I try, whatever my shock setup, I'm obliged to bottom out. That's why I use an oil not too much thick and the RPM skid/wear plates with my titanium skidplates
badd to the bone!!!
FERRITE RINGS PM ME!
That was perfect.. Nice job..
Rally, Slash 4X4, Summit 1/16
great thread, what's left besides lipo's?
FERRITE RINGS PM ME!
I can't wait to get my Novak. Those runtimes make me so excited! I also love how smooth the power was with yours.
E-Maxx 3905 w Novak 6.5/ VXL Rusty/VXL pede/ slash
Always like watching your videos. That last jump was pretty nice, good SAFE landing.
Also liked the mono down the ramp at about 1:30 hehe.
Good vid. Good music. Nice driving. Great job!!!!!!! Looked like a lot of fun. The last jump was SICK! You need a No Fear sticker on that rig.
Ever hear this? That toy truck cost how much?!?!
Thanks a lot all for the positive comments
Behind the fun, there is a sad reality... :
And behind this sad reality, there is a lot of fun
You are so cool,you have the bravest stunt trick with an E-Maxx that I have ever seen, you own the emaxx scene......:-)
Keep it coming.
