great to see you here, I follow your thread on traxxas forum. also your thread has influenced my e-maxx build and purchases. also love your vid's.

_paralyzed_ 11.29.2009 04:05 AM

stock diffs? get some 1/8's in there.

Popoxx 11.29.2009 06:40 AM

Thanks Ron E :happy: Do you have a build thread somewhere ?

_paralyzed_ : I use a 4s setup so the diffs hold out :party: I think I replaced them both only twice since I have bought my maxx. But sure, if I had been on 6s I would have used FLM hybrid bulks + 1/8' diffs :yes:

Buzzsaw46 12.08.2009 04:05 AM

Nice Vids!!

I have replaced my diffs only once, FLM Hybrids rule:yipi:

What's new ? :

- UE diff (6 spyders) with black anodized cases
- UE Monoblock black anodized
- Proline Ford F-650 body
- IMEX Swamp Dawg tires
- Turnigy 4500mAh 3S2P 30C LiFePo4 packs
- and some minor mods...

I made an Excel file in which I listed all the parts needed to build this maxx (screw by screw, bearing by bearing, washer by washer...), where to buy them and how much they cost. PM me with your mail if you want it.

I will post lots of pics of the 6s build tonight :happy:

It's time to test it now !!

Ron E 05.05.2010 12:20 PM

wow, looks great...

i'd like a copy of your build sheet.

wouldn't mind some new vid's also... about to take a break with my 5th scales now and get back to my e-maxx's. I think a flm chassis might be next. love your truck, great build.

Popoxx 05.06.2010 04:38 PM

Thanks Ron :happy:
These little maxxs are great :mdr:
You can't go wrong with a FLM chassis ! I hope my file will help you. I will make a vid asap !

"Some" build pics !

The first step was to anodize some parts in black to match my color theme. It's 1offRC (http://1offrc.com/) which did it, they made a great job and their service is excellent !

http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x...BP1060814B.jpg

The Monoblock didn't fit well the FLM 3905 chassis, I've had to dremel a bit the 4 bottom screws (chassis braces side) of the Mono and the rear notches of the chassis :

I needed a longer center rear dogbone, the UE "DogBone for Monoblock with the Thunder or Lightning Chassis" fits but it's a tad shorter IMO. The O'Donnell dogbone is longer but I use the UE one which seems stronger. I will test both though if needed.

http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x.../P1060729B.jpg

http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x.../P1060888B.jpg

I replaced the FLM drive cups with the Traxxas Drive Cups Inner Revo (5153R) which are longer. And I use HPI rubber O-rings to secure the dogbones.


Second step was the assembly of the UE diffs. As I use the stock driveshafts (I will use the Summit ones if the stock ones don't hold out 6s), I needed to replace the UE output drive cups (on top of the pic) by Traxxas stub axles (I cut the threaded part) :

http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x.../P1060677B.jpg

I use Ofna diff oil (7k front & 5k rear), Acer Racing bearings and Gorilla Snawt (for ring and pinion gears). And voilą ! :

http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x.../P1060878B.jpg

http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x.../P1060890B.jpg

It was really long to shim them, I hope I did it correctly :whistle:

Popoxx 05.06.2010 04:41 PM

Some minor mods :

- IMEX Swamp Dawg tires vs Proline Mashers :

http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x.../P1060541B.jpg

http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x.../P1060542B.jpg

http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x.../P1060543B.jpg

These tires are really more hard than the Masher ones, so hard that I couldn't turn them inside out to tape them ! We'll see if they hold out with my new 6s setup !

- I added protections (to flatten the bottom of my maxx and to hide the silver color of the ti skids) and chassis braces (to reinforce the chassis - I know it's pretty useless but I like the idea :lol: ):

The last parcel I received was the LiFePo4 packs.

http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x.../P1070063B.jpg

I charged the packs, they were well balanced.

I will use a 65/22 FGR for the 1st test.
