Wow...I didn't expect this...

I didn't think that RC Rock Crawling would get this popular. I got into RC back in '04, and when I got to Korea, I switched to the rocks because it's slower, and with a T-Maxx, going slower means fewer parts break. As opposed to hitting a manhole cover doing mach 2. I will admit...I've been under a rock for the last couple of years, but I'm beginning to come around to being social again.

This is my T-Maxx that I use for a rock crawler, currently not running. But here's some pics from it's time in Korea:






And yes, in pic 3, that's clutch smoke.

Tmaxx w/ big block Ofna Picco 26 MAX
single speed lockout in tranny,
IMEX K-Rock Crawler Tires with Maximizer Performance beadlocks and rock rings
Integy Chassis and skids
RPM A-Arms and wear plates
Pro-Line Shocks and springs
Header and Muffler made by someone...forgot who.
OFNA Failsafe
"Revo Rollover" fuel loop
VG Racing full cage
Fastlane Machine bulkhead/diff hybrids
Robinson Racing double disc clutch
Futaba digital radio
steel CV shafts and propeller shafts ( I forget who made them)
steel hexes


and millions of dollars spent on other stuff that I can't remember.

Actually, since I started crawling with it, nothing has broken. It probably runs better than it did as a speeder. It actually does run, but the header worked loose and I haven't got around to fixing it yet. But it's reliable as hell otherwise.
