its a 1.5d I just got a couple weeks ago, but it runs the MM real hot about 10 min of bashing and need to stop for 10. Need my monster ! The 1y can go all day with the MM. Those are Neu 30c packs I got from Diversity Air. They wouldnt fit in the stock 3905 chassis (too long) had to grind a chassis all up, but fit nice in the gmaxx.

Nice truck.

Looking at the underbelly, can you put something in there to smoothen out the area where the skids are connected to the chassis? It looks like it might get snagged into something and rip it off. Like a flat piece of aluminum stretching from the front skid to the rear. Kind of a center skid, sort of.

lol no lack Neil, Joe and Patric said only use good batterys for the Monster so out went the Max(min)Amps in came the highest amps I could find that didnt break the bank.... George, Yeah i know, it surely will catch on something sooner or later, I have a piece of carbon that was a middle for the 3905 braces I was going to try to pop on the middle to cover the exposed tranny bottom but something longer would be ideal. Maybe time to invest in a CF sheet.

Nice truck, how does it handle? Is the upper deck thick enough not to flex?

thanks, no credit to me, I just screwed the stuff together. It handles really nice with the 8x 8ight shocks and knuckle head towers and the LCG with all the lipos. The top chassis tray is pretty thick, I was pleasantly surprised. When its all screwed together theres no flex, alot better than I thought it would be when I purchased the kit. For the price id say its pretty good, except that bottom skid plate lip issues.

Well that's great to hear....I know what to get if my G2 fails

My only concern is my A123 will be too big to be mounted on those narrow tray...

wow... Nice build Jay..
I'm running mine on 8s and breaking parts, I hope / wish you better luck than Iím having..

Sweat builds for sure... Love the Lipo's... those cost almost as much as the chassis itself..

So where's the video (??)

Have a great one and very cool sir...

Impressive! When you said 10s 5000mah, and I saw the MM, I said "Wow, I can see his next thread title, 'MM Super-overvoltage testing: Mission Failed!'"
Nice rig, 5s 10000mah will be powerful, but quite heavy I might add, (tell me something I don't already know, you're probably saying as you read this...)

Being 2 5s 5000mah, they must cost more than the chassis!

LOL ! No havent driven it that way, Those 5s 5ks are for my truggy (1 at a time) , but I will when the Monster max is back, just because I can There are huge parks out here and the family goes and hangs out all day, I bring all my rc toys trucks, planes, boats and it would be fun to chase the kids and geese for over an hour on 1 charge but id probably snap the chassis if I jumped. I usually drive that motor with 4s 5k and it weighs in less than stock now.

4s
