    Dman's Tmaxx

    Hey guys,
    This thread is about my Tmaxx, I got it a few months back as a roller and I replaced some old parts and I chucked on a Team Associated .18, its an older .15 version that has been upgraded alot here are the upgrades that are on it-
    *Built with stainless steel screws
    *Newer 4mm thick chassis
    *Robinson Racing Products hardened steel 72t spur gear & 19T hardened steel clutch bell
    *Pro-Line Ford Excursion SUV body
    *Dynamite aluminum front & rear upper and lower A-arms (silver)
    *Traxxas stainless hinge pins with e-clips
    *M.I.P center chrome CVD driveshafts
    *Dynamite chrome CVD drive axles front & rear
    *RPM front hubs with the larger bearings
    *RPM front & rear shock towers (black) with SUV type body mounts
    *4 Hot Bodies aluminum big bore shocks with Racers edge springs
    *Upgraded Tuned Pipe
    *GPM Maxx aluminium battery box
    *Team Associated .18 Pro with new Sullivan Tiger Drive Electric Start
    *Team associated S2008 MG servo

    Here some pics of it from about a month ago when I completed it-





    It has gotten dirty and its pretty fun to drive. Heres a vid of it in action-


    And how it looked after that-



    ATM I have changed the shocks to 4 big bores and I've got a Sullivan TigerDrive electric starter because my pull starter broke and the truck is waiting for some FLM aluminium chassis braces that a guy on Nitrocarnage.com is sending me so when I get that I'll get some mopre recent pics up.

    I'm after a rear skid plate for mine. The front and rears are different, I have 3 fronts but no rears.

    I also have lots of other spares, if you need something just ask. I might have what you need.

    Cheers, Brett.

    I know it's a bit crappy but it should clean up ok. Maybe even paint it blue like the battery box.
    Got to love it for free!

    Nah its fine I'm just going to chuck on some stickers and mount it. I havent drove the truck since I got your rx box because I took the engine off to clean it but I couldn't be bothered finishing cleaning it because I had my MGT to drive. haha

    Do you have any countersunk screws that hold the skid plates to the chassis braces?

    Cheers, Brett.

    I was watching it on ebay, not a single bid! The T-Maxx is just not worth much and the start price was way to high.

    It's only worth what it means to you! I know you love it!

    Cheers, Brett.

    Yea I think I did put the price a bit too high but I didnt want to sell it for too low or else I'd always regret it. I took it for a spin yesterday, I'm gonna change the gearing from 19/72 to 22/72, the truck is too slow for my liking with the current gearing. I also want to get new 1/8 buggy shocks for it but I'm not sure. I've also gotta get some more body clips, everytime I drive I lose about 2 clips, the clips might end up costing me more than the fuel at this rate.
