that was beyond fast!ordered these last night received the tires today!
Wow that's fast. Let me know how you like them compared to badlands. I'm running mashers but was eyeing out some badlands. The regular trenches are too big, I'm gonna run them on another rig 1/8 scale.
I'm also still trying to find the hr bell crank for my maxx
Shows you price isn't everything! I paid 28.00 on the 12th and still no delivery!
Hey 50togo do those proline tires stink? i didnt smell anything when the package is closed but i hear when you open them up until you wash them they stink bad.
what wheels are you putting those on? i like the look of those but i'm leaning to the trencher x's.

I took the castle bec off and made a 4700 16v glitch buster and works much better then the smaller novak buster!
I bet stormer has a set
Didn't notice any stink. The mashers are going on my revo. My daughter wont part with the Trenchers!
yeah i bet stormer has a set haha.
Mashers on the revo would be nice as well.
what wheels you planning on using?
DEU 8:18 ESV
Desperado's black chrome 1/2" offset
Hey mike if you need a chrome set zero offset let me know
I should of taken pics but I bent the wires back over the capacitor to keep from breaking then soldered them then shrink wrap and then 1/2" shrink wrap over the top. Should hold up good!
nice wheels you choose there, same what i was going to pick i think it was those. I looked at a set online that were mounted to trenchers x's that were not too much. Havent found the need to tape just yet but i dont mind unglueing only thing i have a hard time is glueing just right.
50 sent over a message to you.

Big trenchers would need taping!
picked up a gh aluminum horn. Had to drill and tap the 3mm threads to match the stick horn
That was stock horn not stick. Spell check
That new hole doesn't look bad for eyeballing it!
Makes you wonder what stormer is thinking
I can't even find it on stormer??
They probably took it down. Hate when they say it went out and it didn't. Wont return email still
Hey 50 what springs are you ruining in the maxx? I know you run 80 wt oil.
Gosh spell check owns me.....running
They are stiffer white springs I took.off my t maxx. Tried some searching but not sure what they are!
well at least my gpm chassis braces came in!
stormer received the flm braces .who wants to bet they will give me a hard time on the refund! no word from stormer or HR in the mail
Installing the braces
Now that looks stronger!
I trimmed the horn so I had room to put a nut on the bolt and able to get a wrench on it!

looking good on the chassis braces there. do you have plasti dip on your esc connector? looks like it from the second picture.
Man you have too many CD's there. looks like over 1K!
DEU 8:18 ESV
That where I had the bec wired up to and put plastic dip over it. The glitch buster I made is working good so far!
so the glitch buster is if you have a servo that requires high voltage right? I've heard of that and wondering if thats the only reason why you need one or am i missing something? I know you run a Savox servo single since its got x4's more than the stock 2075 has.
DEU 8:18 ESV
I bought a few 4700uf 16v capacitors on ebay cheap and made my own. Worked good on the savox in the max didn't want to run the bec if I didn't have to. Now I have an extra for my revo
!good to have to lighten the load off the esc making the servo more responsive. Cheap fix I made two stronger ones for the price of one novak glitch buster that is too small to.help
So this makes no sense! The novak glitch buster didn't help and the 4700 16v I made works good but I just checked the novak and its a 5600 10v
Wow, your Maxx looks really good, you are a steller mechanic on your Maxx ! New Chasis braces look good with the blue color scheme and the servo along with the horn are perfect upgrades as well. I had my maxx out today and hit a "jump" off a snowpile, got about five feet airbourne, and as a result one of my stock servos gears stripped right out. I have to get an upgraded Servo. Its a must. I'm going to sell the four stock servos I have ( pair of the 2056 and a pair 2075 ) and get like a really really good , solid, strong servo. I want the absolute best. Anyone have any ideas? I'm just worried that as soon as I get it, i'll have a difficult time find a horn that works and a BEC or glitch buster that will make it work perfectly. Looking good 50 !
save your money for a hitec! this savox is noisy and the hitec works fine without a bec or glitch buster .any aluminum horn for a hitec will work
I agree with 50, I have a hitec hs7955tg on my roadmaxx. Also got the pc programmer for it whitch is pretty cool. No complaints i love it. Worked fine without a glitchbuster but i added one just for security.
I put the novak buster on my revo with the hitec because it was sitting around. Sure wont hurt!
Went out bashing. Someone took a shovel and did some major trail damage. Trail had a nice downhill jump now you have to hit it uphill
Hey I recognise those Chassis Braces LOL. HAd them on my truck pretty much from the get go and I am very happy with how they have held up.
Always get a 2nd Opinion!
Thats good to know!
It's all coming together now mate .
Rock n Rolla !
It was a good ride no.broken parts! Lost a few body clips even with the circular ones that go around the.post
Diffs held up great the horn fell off even with loctite and tight bolts .will have to put a center bolt in there .
She was doing some 12 foot drops and a few landings on the roof. Time for the bug body stock body is pretty beat
The traxxas aluminum toe links came in!
Wheres that hr bellcrank?
