hello! I just ran my e-maxx for the first time with my mamba monster ESC, I plugged in 3300mah 3s lipos in series, all I can say is I didn't get killed in a train wreck or mauled by a bear. Pics!
and the rear
I thought this was unusual
Still unaccounted for is a complete suspension arm I would like to find it to recover my pivot ball! Also not a single RPM product was broken that day. Credit also goes to big bore shocks that didn't even get bent, it decided to be a man and tear itself out of the shock tower. We clocked it at 49 MPH but the curb still refused to get out of the way . Thanks for reading, I will get a damage report in a few days and it will certainly be running before snow fall.
I like turtles.
That's a bad one
I think you zigged, when you should have zagged ;-p

Yeh when you drive on 6S you don't go full throttle unless in a big open field.
Going down the street doesn't work; it only needs to get slightly off balance and it's all over.
Welcome to the world of 6s Lipo's. Make for great fun, but one slip-up and there is carnage. Since I upgraded to Aluminium Bulkheads, shock towers, shocks & skid plates, the carnage has been considerably less frequent and less severe.
that reminds me of when i hit a guard rail at about 50 but your chassis isnt in half =P, nice crash though man now you have an amazing excuse to upgrade.
Nothing can beat 6s Power. Awsome fun. Time for upgrade.
As bad as the damage looks I think my list of replacement parts might be as little as bulkheads, skid plates, and a chassis. I literally have 7 pairs of extra suspension arms, a steering assembly, steering knuckles, and a full set of shocks in my spare parts box. My concern is the screws removed themself from the ACNCM bulkheads in the rear, they might have torn out the threads. If so I have plastic bulkheads as spares but they are not a reliable replacement. Given that almost every suspension pin is probably ruined I'm going to buy "ejector pins" from the hardware store.
edit: the body was brand new until I ran it twice on 4s lipo, and this once on 6s lipo, it is pretty much finished, I am sad about the body and the tire
