Well here's my new project
Light weight chassis
FLM hybrid bulkhead/ diff
Ss mods 3.3 crankshaft
Davis diesel connecting rod
New backing plate
New crank case
New cooling head
Proline masher tires
That is all I have right now ill keep posting updates
Could you guys give me input on what else to buy or do thanks
Oh and I need a name lol thanks guys
Name: B-maxx (Bash-maxx)
Gotta have rpm towers.
"I like rc cars"....."WHAT? YOU'RE KIDDING!"
Ok guys I need help, the chassis I have is a 4909 and I need to decide what tranny I can put on it, I don't think I'll want a reverse one because they break easy but I don't know what tranny I can use with the older style drive shafts??? Or how can I make this work??
My other question is
What servos do you guy think I should use for the throttle and the steering???
I think to keep things simple you should choose a tranny with output shafts
the same diameter as your diff's output shaft (pinion gear).
I prefer the black 2.5 trannys but mating 5mm output shafts of the black tranny
up to E Maxx diffs 6mm pinion gears was a bit tricky.
Do you know if your diffs use 5 or 6mm drivecups?
Bash, Crash, Upgrade, Repeat..
What you think about this one:
And for throttle:
Maybe a Traxxas 2075 (Waterproof) or a 2070(no waterproof)
2070 (no waterproof)
Just my suggestion
P.S: Looking nice

Well I have traxxas Cvds that are now connected to a 4909 tranny that I took the reverse out of, I put on Aluminum shock towers , traxxas battery box, aluminum chassis braces. That's as far as I got today and I forgot to take pictures lol but I will later
Oh DBG thanks man that's the servos that will be going into the truck
Got some more parts today
Blue heavy duty springs
Hoping traxxas red toe links
I haven't decided on a crab yet it might be the os .21tm not sure yet
keep us updated john, maybe some pics?
Yeah sorry man ill get the pics today I left the truck at my buddy's house when I went Over to show him, I'm picking it up today but thanks man
And I found an os 11k card to go on the 3.3!!!!!!
Coming along nicely buddy. I really like those blue control arms.
I have that same fuel tank on my shelf queen, those are oldies but goodies.

Have u thought about installing robinson racing steel gears in your trans? They make that already tough trans freakin nuke proof
If your using the FLM ult hybrid rear with their diff and a stock front diff then you are going to have a problem with gear ratio. The rear is an 1/8th scale diff. Not sure what the ratio's are but they are different.
Oh we'll I wasn't thinking about that, so do you think the best is just to buy another bulkhead system
ooh i got a name Max Zilla !!!!!!!
Hey I like that name lol
Well it's between bash-maxx or maxx Zillia....
I LOVE my hybrids. I cheated and put stock diffs in the bulks that were intended for buggy diffs and they have held up just fine. I will likely finally buy some buggy diffs once I get my brushless rig up and running though.
Formerly Wildjones before forum upgrade
Ok it gives me some thing to think about, are big bore schlock a good choice??
Ok thanks man
Nice Build, That looks really cool, but I have a question I have yet to figure out, what exactly is Bashing?
Yes I am new to Nitro Traxxas stuff actually New to the Entire RC Hobby I just got disgusted with the cheap CHEAP 4.8V rc I bought to entertain the cats always Dead or unable to run in lawn and seen a Traxxas T-Maxx on Ebay for a Rediculously ( I mean it to Rediculous) low price so I thought I would give it a shot and have not been so happy with a Purchase I have ever made on Impulse, but sadly now I am Hooked hard core and have this insane Craving that I must drive my T-Maxx daily or I get Withdrawl Issues. But back to the Thread, I am quite impressed with some of the items and am excited to hear how it turns out and especially how that carb works with the 3.3 as i will be going 3.3 as soon as I wear out my new 2.5 i installed a couple weeks ago. Got it at a Steal too.
Well bashing is not racing it's back yard fun! There's not a big definition for it but you run it hard have fun and replace or upgrade anything that breaks lol thanks guys
Well my next update will be soon
I see so what I do pretty much is Bashing, ya I ran into my 2.5 I am selling the neighbor and busted my Front Bulkhead and his (well mine still Throttle/Brake Servo) as a matter of fact the sun is out no rain so I better get out and start playing a bit
T-Maxx 3.3 :)
Ok I've never messed with big bore shocks what the differences between stock?? I'm about to get some but not sure yet
Aluminum bodies and aluminum shock caps and tinitride shock shafts
Ok thanks so I have a question about the carb settings.... So with my 11k card should put it to traxxas break-in settings to break it in????
Any one got an idea????
