    Emaxx truggy?

    I have a 3908 Emaxx with the mamba monster system that I absolutely love. But I want to do some more work to it I want to make it a truggy my questions to you are what kind of wing mount tires body and whatever else I may need to do or buy do you suggest to make it more identical to a truggy Any pics or info would be great.

    Thanks Chris.

    A tekno rc wing mount works, proline bulldog body for tuggies will work, i use traxxas response pro tires and dosh wheels and they work good on everythinga
    That is my emaxx in the middle with the above items, and many more upgrades

    Get a aftermarket lcg chassis, preferably one with a center diff. That would be a great start.
    Man i need more than 50 characters.

    this would be a good start. swap your bulks over, get an 1/8 scale ofna center diff and build from there. Not cheap though.

    I'm doing the same kind of build. I just haven't had time to install my flm lcg chassis, wing, and have yet to decide on a body.

    Flm lcg chassis
    Ue makes a few chassis
    I've heard the gorilla-max chassis are the best out there

    The VMaxx uses all the stock parts. And you can install a CD if you want. But it also excepts the transmission.

    This chassis may lower cog but won't be near racing quality in my opinion if that is your intention. The flm 10700 is what I'm gonna use. Ill run it in the just for fun class as it still won't compete with real truggies.

    What do you mean by "racing quality".
    The VMaxx is lighter and stronger then the FLM10700

    By racing quality he means that it won't lower cog as much as an actual lcg chassis which lowers the tranny AND batteries

    i have the flm LCG chassis already and really like it, but I really want to add the 1/8 scale center diff. I added an 1/8 scale c/d to me ERBE and it really made a big difference in handling. I want to do the same for my emaxx. I bought the universal c/d kit from RCM and was going to see if I could in some way adapt it to the flm chassis. My thought was to drill the holes through the battery plate and mount the c/d to that but I think the battery plate is too thin to handle torque load. the other issue is the gearing. going to the c/d kit seems like it will cause the gear ratio to be too high.

    I can't recall how the LCG chasis looks underneath but I know when I was going to add the CD mount from centralemaxx I was told I can just drill and mount it to the FLM center skid plate (I have the regular FLM chasis). Does the LCG chasis not have that skid plate in the center? If it does, that would be plenty thick to take that load.

    If not wrong the center skid plate is optional, it doesn't comes with the chassis.

    The rcm skid plate will bolt to the flm lcg chassis but it will then take a little drilling/tapping to attach the battery tray. Think I am going to order the rcm chassis and braces and just go that way and sell the flm chassis. It will look cleaner in the long run. Hopefully the flm hybrid bulks will attach to the rcm chassis without too much difficulty.

    I ordered the vmax chassis and braces tonight. I will post up a thread that will show the build using this chassis along with the rcm 1/8 center diff and flm hybrid bulks. Still playing with gear ratios but I don't think the 2200kv motor is going to work.

    That's really nice and not a bad price will all the stock parts work with that?
