WELL I'M A HAPPY PERSON TODAY GOT ME A NEW RC TRUCK!!!!
NEW TO TRAXXAS, PREVIOUS RC WAS YEARS AGO WITH MY RC10GT WHICH I STILL HAVE.
HAPPY TO BE HERE LOOKING FORWARD TO MAKING SOME NEW FRIENDS.
WHAT I GOT TODAY:
#2933 Traxxas EZ-Peakô Plus LiPo-Compatible Balance Charger
#2869 7600mah 7.4v 2-Cell 25C LiPO Battery X2
SO THATS MY START
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO JUMP INTO THIS AWESOME BEAST?
first of all WELCOME TO THE ADDICTION. lol.
from what you said it sounds like you should be good to get settled in here. have fun and post pics!!!
3908 emaxx, brushed... slash 2wd... whats next?
I bought my first e-Maxx a year ago, it's been a blast so far. Be prepared to have lots of fun.
mostly have fun. as you break things you can upgrade.
I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.
you have everything as of right now. you'll like the emaxx for sure. i got mine a few months back
DEU 8:18 ESV
Had good first day!!!
Fricken thing has some power!!!
Was cool to set up training mode and let my 7 year old have a whirl at it!
ooh yes it does have tons of power for a 12-14lbs rc
DEU 8:18 ESV
the training mode is pretty sweet idea. so dads can't be like nooo its too fast
Only other thing they Telemetry was not showwing up on my phone
unless you buy all the extra sensors from traxxas. the emaxx brushless edition does not come with all the sensors installed. like RPM AND SPEED, MPH, VOLTAGE. if you go up to the top on this page and click on (Products) then on the right side click to look at the (Transmitters) and at the bottom of the list it says TQI Telemetry. click that and that will explain everything that you have to do to get your truck hooked up and working with your transmitter. hope i helped
Thanks Davy, when its coming out of the box no time to read, when there's playing to be had!!!
I found info, found what i need ,thanks a bunch, just so much activities!
I also found that the docking base made the experience better as I jammed to some tunes on my iPhone as I wash bashing up my street. Can't believe in 40!

CONGRATS!! You're going to enjoy this ride!
no problem baddad, the only car that comes out of the box with all the telemetry is the XO-1. its pretty pricey when your looking to get all that telemetry stuff. there are wiring harness's and a bunch of extra stuff along with just the sensors and i also believe for the rpm sensor you might have to get a different gear box cover due to the extra component in there but i am not 100% sure about that.
if you are an overall basher and arent worried about speed too much much just look into a radar gun and a IR heat gun. old school haha

Welcome to world of e-maxx. I bought my first one about 8 months ago. Did a lot of upgrades to it and liked it so much I built another one from scratch with just about all the best strongest parts and modifications you can do one of these things. Have fun with it.
Double posted pics sorry

First thing I got was wheels and tires, brushless power and li po's ripped my tires pretty quick. I just order some mashers on desperado wheels, seems to be a good in btween to trenchers and badlands. they should also last a long time as well. the 1/2 offset makes the truck a little more stable.
You may have to tighten your slipper, mine was way to loose and I wore it out in a few days.
Just bought some blue wheels for my wheelie bar and ordering parts for telemetry
Thinking about trying to find different truck body to paint up like fire truck and light it up... Just for night time show and cruising up and down the street.... I use to be a firefighter but I could go for police car or truck.
I have looked around I like
Need some headlights / breaklights maybes some grill lights rd and blue
That would look pretty sweet .
Rock n Rolla !
Well looks like get all parts for my telemetry will be here tues. except 6521 temp sensor long which is backordered. I believe I have to have in order to run any of it.
My dad turned 68 in august and seems to have everything needed except toys so I bought him a heli,course he is my hero so I had to have one,two,three,wasn't to nimmble with them so bought myself an e-maxx mmm,bandit vxl,and another brand nitro,needless to say I'm hooked and no intervention could seperate me from the fun I'm having.Getting my nephew into the hobby/sport now.

drive it like you own it,full throttle
Yeah I can't wait! It will be here tues. thanks for the push Mr. Davy!
Look like I may need some shock towers and a body in a week or so. Played pretty,hard last couple days!
Yeah Tarus I got a A.R. Drone I love.and my dad is hot and heavy into airplanes, I use to play with an old nitro from another company . I will eventually cave into planes but got to have a truck to pull the trailer plane will be in. Thought about another nitro car but this brushless is so awesome and much cleaner, much cleaner. Plus I can take it out in morning without ticking off the neighbors.
So I got all my stuff for my telemetry. I recently moved to new house so my work bench is no where in site I hope to rebuild it and then put my telemetry together with pics once I build my cabinets / workbench
welcome to the embe club. I just recently joined myself except I built mine piece by piece. what a blast it has been to build and drive! have fun! I'm about two hours south of you btw
EB48.3, ET48.3, Proline SCB
Have to purchase a Traxxas banner now
I like it mate...I wish I had space to build an RC shed. Well done .
Rock n Rolla !
