Almost finished with the number two truck's upgrade/rebuild for brushless combo! I've had lots of fun with this upgrade too.

All those shiny parts!

I prefer Traxxas's slipper system tho. Worked pretty well for me and even adapted it to my crawlers when possible.

I like that servo saver pretty good it is what I am using now. But Central Maxx has a new one that is like the UE Gen IV but a threaded body. The Gen IV is pretty good too.

I installed the Hot-Racing aluminum bearing saver steering kit on the FLM upgrade truck. I chose to remove the anodized colors and polish the aluminum instead.

Well, it's time to start the upgrade for the number-one-truck. This was my first E-MAXX - it is a 3905. The top pic was how it looked after it's first aftermarket purchase - a new body. The last pic is how it looks now. The aluminum chassis will be anodized black to begin the brushless upgrade process.

If this is the right manual, it says it comes with grease stock?

Thanks you Ruudxd! I will review the manual and see what I can find. Well, the silicone oil is an option. Thank you again for your help - sir!

Well, as soon I discover another process to upload more pics, I will show pictures of the progress for number 1&2 FLM upgraded trucks - plus the V-MAXX chassis build. As usual, it's been fun to build and upgrade the trucks.
