since i got here first, i will tell you this, everyone is going to say put rpm all the way around, i did that on my emaxx brushless and haven't broken a thing, but listen to this, i bought a erevo brushless and everything on that thing is bone stock a arms and everything and i still havent broken anything on it, leave it stock until you break something THEN see if you can get the rpm one to replace it, complete waste of money changing to rpm before i broke anything.
i would lower the body change the shock oil to 45 wt ,i dont know if it has lvd but i would go lipo but welcome to family and nice truck
Good winter truck. Fun in the snow. I've had mine for a year. And i just broke my second rear shock tower. I do stay brushed in winter. Then a brushless combo for summer.
I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.
got a new body for the maxx
before and after
RPM is totally worth it, the E-revo has stronger parts and will not break in a crash that would devistate a MAXX (sad but generally true). RPM is totally worth the money, at least A-Arms. Their towers and Carriers flex to much, but A-Arms, skid plates, and rod ends are totoally worth the money at any time. And if you replace it before it breaks, you dont have to sepend time waiting to repair a broken truck
This parrot is NO MORE!!! This is an ex-parrot!!!

Need some advice guys. Just ordered some 6500mah 50c 2s lipos (first set of lipos). I have a onxy 245 charger that charges at 0.8A, 1.5A, 3A, & 5A. Which amp rate would be best for charging these batteries. And also any advice on being on the safe side of handling lipos?
Got my first set of lipos 3/13. Ordered them 12/30/12. Got them pretty darn quick even with the new years holiday in the way. Anyways... to answer my own question... I did some research and figured that I had to max out my charger at 5a for these batteries. I tried them out in the snow and all I can say is WOWW!!!! What a difference. Im gonna be investing in a lipo bag real soon just to be on the safe side. After that I'll be looking to get into a brushless setup. Im thinking of going with the CC MM2200Kv package. Bad idea or good idea?
6500mah is huge. Whats your runtime.
If you plan to not use it in wet conditions then the MMM1 would good and it would be cheaper too if you can look around for it on eBay.

Nice choice on the paddles, what offset are those rims? I have paddles on my 5s maxx and it tears up the beach.
