That is sweet! I have the Pro-Line CJ-8 body on my T-Maxx. Even though I have a Scout, I think the EB body is about as close as I will get to a Scout body. That body is too cool!

Well since we're on the subject I'm looking at buying a t-maxx used and if anyone has advice on this deal let me know....

Quote:
Top-O-line shocks (AL bodys, caps, with the theading to adjust hight and stiffness)

AL Front upper and Lower control arms.

Titanium front diff stabilizer.

EXTREAMLY Beefy AL Chassis (should be best you can buy)..

New Gas tank w/ seals.

New motor... (Traxxis repair exchange programe... new maybe has 1/2 gallon through it) Stock motor but I have a perf. Muffler and intake.

I have 2 sets of tires...
1 set has crome tri-stars with monster claw tires and the other set has the crome fanblades with paddle tires (for snow and sand)

I just got a compleat look over at the shop with new one way bearing, new needle valve one the carb, 90* fitting, rebuild front servo, and some other small miss stuff. It has not been run since them repairs.

It also has a AL rear skid plate, and Brand new front plastic one.

Also, I will include and controler, battary w/ starter, my tool box w/ all the tools (small screwdrivers, plyers, etc etc, and will include some spair parts and a fuel quirt bottle. Ill toss in the quick charger for the starter battary. It can be pluged into a house Or it has little aligator clips so you can charge off a car battary! The I have a lot of mis. stuff.

The stock plastic body is alittle beaten but (cracks) but as you see in the pics it looks and works fine. Stuff that I did not include in the last posts was I have the stock rims and tires, but I think one or two are damaged. I have a Subaru WRX body all painted, decaled and I cut some air vent holes in it. I you want I also have a Hummer body. It is just painted (but really horribly) and not even cut out. Finally, I have the kit to make a "SUV" body work on it. It is still in the package and never used.
Guy want $450 and it seems like a pretty good deal. I'm not into this junk for racing or anything I just want to spool both ends, add a tube chasis, and beat the crap out of it. Any info is appreciated.

Stock motor is gay.

Check out local hobby shops for consignment cars. I would much rather buy a car that I can look at, and see whats going on with it. There are tons of T-Maxx's out there so you can be pickey.

I would buy a new one just because they are fun to assembly

Why do you say that??? Is it just because an aftermarket motor or the new 2.5 will run circles around it???

I really don't care if the top speed is 30 or 40. This bitch is going to run the same trails my jeep does

bigdude,
I dont run nitro (electric only), but $450 sounds steep for a used rebuilt truck, especially since new trucks are under $400. Granted there are a few parts on it, like the shocks and frame, but for what you would want to do with it, a new stocker or a used (save some $$) sounds like the way to go.

But what about the fact that they are $500 new and don't come with paddle tires

Here is why you buy new: go look in Gen Tech. Look at all that horse shit, backwards booty fab that adults are doing to shit they have to ride around in. Now imagine how good they were at putting things together when they were kids Thats who you would be buying a used T-Maxx from


Paddle tires suck on the rocks. I used some mini BFG look-a-likes on my NMT in moab, seemed to work well, but everything stick on that crap.

Also,
the aluminum parts on the truck only mean that more expensive parts will break instead of the cheap arms. The al skidplate is nice, but you can get them cheap. as for paddles or other tires, try _bay you will probably be able to pick up what you want very cheap.
Where did $500 come from? towerhobbies.com shows $399 for a new 2.5 Tmaxx

Personaly I would not get a t-max. The 2nd clutch in the transmission makes the truck feel spongy in its starts. Just think that there are better offerings out there. That having been said Associated's new monster should be out soon and that is bigger and has a larger engine.
The HPI has a larger engine and more suspension.
The XTM (haven't seen one in real life yet) looks like a good chassis.
If I were to get a nitro MT I would get either the Kyosho mad force (three speed tranny, solid axles and .21 power), or the HPI.
Go here and check prices, that seems steep.

$399 w/ new tires/rims/tools so I figured ~$500. Is that out of the question???

And LAME I live in FL where spools and paddle tires will be the shit for climbing at the beach I'm going to look around on the net for the kyosho, soid axles sound cool.


I appreciate the honest responses.

*edit* no reverse in the kyosho so that scraps it

You don't really need reverse, but it is nice to have.
Does anyone want to host a pic of my highly modded USA-1. It will climb most stairs.
If you want to play on the rocks with it make sure to get a spool in the back.

You are a dip aren't you? Did you even bother to look at the pic. let alone the site it came from to make that determination?
Tell you what, look it up and tell me how dumb you really are.

Yeah, really , if you confuse a Bronco with a Sammy, you're mental.


RC Cars kick ass. My brother had a gas Vette that would do 70 mph (So he claimed). Seeing it run a few times, I believe it

I'd love to get one, but don't have the $$$ to play around with right now.
