Question Weird Gorillamaxx chassis...G1? Original? Prototype? Has anyone seen this before? - 08.04.2009, 09:11 PM

[Here] is the link to the info/picture page...


Here are some pictures from that page...
(notice the dull finish, the lack of lightening cut-outs, the "bolt-on" raised edges of the chassis, only 7 battery slots, and the weird/generic packaging graphics/font)

The one with the lip around the bottom chassis plate is the original G-maxx chassis. The dull one is the G2.

I had both of those at one time or another.


I can't decide if its more fun
to make it...
or break it...

All those pictures are the G1 chassis - just no lip is installed in a couple of the pictures. I still have a purple G1, actually. The G2 aluminum lower plate had bent edges instead of the lip piece, and also could accomodate 8 nimh cells per side (G1 only held 7 cells). A couple pictures even show the old Gorilla shock towers, too. :)

HiAmp! Man he tried a lot of different set-ups and helped up paved the way! I'm sure Mike remembers him well.

Thats definitely the G-Maxx chassis that started it for GorillaMaxx.

I used to have a purple G1 once...

Hmm... They can be considered collectors items now, but they are dated and created for the original E-Maxx. Not sure it would work on the newer maxx. I'm betting $200+ or higher if NIP... Look at the price of the G3R chassis...


Dafni: Great find on the new avatar. I solute you!
