    I knew this vid, this MT looks good and sounds good ! But this size is almost ridiculous in fact Hard to test it in your little backyard

    Of course if I build a 1/5 scale MT it will be BL
    This Neu 2230 is impressive It looks like a turbine

    Yeah its awesome! LOL I've got plenty of land to run it on if I had it. But not what I'm looking for and way to expensive.

    Good maybe you should do a big stretch BL savy!

    Yeah those motors are huge! That pictured 2230 has a gearbox on the end of it.

    This one I guess ? :



    It's a Voltcraft FSP power supply. Here are its specs :



    This setup is awesome

    I just need my ******* 5000mAh 2S1P 20C hardcase packs which are still out of stock (-386)

    Maybe even the rideable 1/3 scale with one of these: CLICK 2230! LOL
    Absolutely love this 1/3 scale. Good for the kids too.
    How much does it cost?

    LOL
    It begs, nae needs 6s, but I'd be terrified of the 6s electronic brakes. I would make every effort to run mech brakes and/or wait for CC to come out with the HVcarMonster that could more safely handle the 6s electronic brakes.

    Motor choice would be awesome by that time as well. Go with a CC 1518-1527 or maybe even a massive CC 1717! 1500-2000KV.

    Popoxx: Would you mind posting your parts list for this build like you did on your E-Maxx build?

    Awesome job on both builds!!! I'm drooling.

    Thanks, Don

    Popoxx: Which truck do you like more your ERBE or your EMAXX? I love my ERBE but I'm considering getting another truck and I'm looking pretty hard at the EMAXX and I was just wanting to know your thoughts on each truck.

    I have the E-Maxx and love it, for my second truck instead of buying a ERBE I will be doing a Popoxx inspired E-Revo build from the ground up just like him! I love both of his trucks, Popoxx I will be starting my build shortly!!!! I'm excited!!! btw any update of putting a E-Maxx Brushless body on your trucks?

    I prefer my E-Maxx just because you can upgrade it ad infinitum !!
    And that's what I like in this hobby ! I prefer testing upgrades and improving strength & reliability rather than run my MTs And I like the MT look of the E-Maxx. A stock ERBE is too pefect so it's not funny for me, and it's difficult to have a setup different from the other ERBE owners because the upgrade range isn't as important as the E-Maxx one's.
    mistercrash wouldn't agree with me given the number of pages of his build thread But I want to propose plug & play means of improving an E-Maxx / ERBE, so that most of people can do it themselves.

    From a driving/strength point of view, my upgraded MTs are equal (but a stock ERBE is really much sturdy than a stock EMBE !), they are both funny/easy to drive. Maybe my ERBE is easier to drive due to its light weight (11.3lb vs 12.7lb).

    So if you like upgrading and fixing, and if you like a "standard" MT design, the E-Maxx is perfect for you (but I hope you have enough cash ).

    I would like to do it but I have too many 3905 bodies in my tool box ! I have to destroy them before buying other bodies, maybe...

    I hope you're aware that it's more expensive (and longer) to start from scratch to build an ERBE rather than buying it directly and upgrading it step by step ? Except if you find good deals on ebay ! Can't wait the build thread I love them

    Whoa...I almost missed this part and had to read it again. So it is more expensive to build from scratch and only buying the parts (upgrades) I'd want? I thought it would be cheaper.

    How do you figure that it is more expensive? Instead of paying for all of the parts that you don't need (built into the price) and then when you order the upgrades you have a bunch of worthless parts laying around...that you paid for and aren't using... I know exactly what I want and will shop on e-bay for the core parts...

    Here are the numbers

    If i build one the way i want it:$779-$800 This is with all RPM parts Tekin RX8 2250 combo And Traxxas option parts and a little more...(No Radio or Batts) Most of us have those...

    Buy one stock: From RCPlanet $674.95

    So I spend another $120 to have a bulletproof truck.... Thats the way I will go...

    Now add the option parts to 674.95 and you get a little more than $780 Just my .02

    You said "how do you figure it's more expensive" then went on to say that it actually DID cost more to build one... What you should have said was building one let's you spend your money where you want to. I understand what you mean it's just funny your post sounds like you don't think it costs more to build one then you say it did cost more.

    If your just getting into electric or you don't have a 2.4ghz radio it's deffinatly cheaper to buy one stock. Or buy a roller, 2.4ghz radio and the brushless system you want. That's what I did and doing this WAS cheaper then buying a stock one.

    It is cheaper to buy the brand new kit, sell off the parts you dont want, then upgrade from there.

    Why do you think you see so many people on eBay (and here) parting out their RCs? The sum of the parts is worth more than the whole.

    I had the same idea. Thought it might be cheaper to build an emaxx from scratch to save some money. After I found all the parts i needed on eBay and added them all up, it was more than double what a new truck would cost.

    It is, however, more fun to build one from scratch. Of course, you could always just completely disassemble your new one once you get it.

    But we digress...

    Popoxx, thank you for this thread. Your project has inspired me to restore an erevo i bought off here. The information in this thread is most helpful.

    I cant wait to see any updates you have.

    Thanks SlashX Pics coming soon ! (March...).
    But don't expect original mods (except one ! ), it's hard to build a singular ERBE, unless you like painting bodies

    I'm not sure about that...Popoxx doesn't have a wing on his Revo for me to look at, I have one on my Maxx and a had to cut a notch in the back of the body, Not hard to do and it makes my truck look awesome. Here is a picture of my maxx with the wing.In the second picture you can see the the opening in the body somewhat. It is in the Back and center of the truck like this.]

    You're right, new holes are needed. And HobbyLover is right too, you need to widen openings for the bumpers. But you forgot one thing ! ... ERBE decals Pics here : http://monster.traxxas.com/showpost....&postcount=247.

    About the wing, obviously you need to cut a notch as HobbyLover did (nice maxx by the way ).

    You're welcome ! I think I will build a waterproof maxx or revo for the next winter, it's so frustrating not to run its MTs during the winter !
