Hey I have a mini-giant too (AKA A-tech Mini Monster)! I tried to not crawl with it and that was a bad idea. Check out this video I made of it when I just got my crappy old Rustler.

This forum is totally awesome; weíve got some of the brightest gentlemen in the industry here willing to exchange ideas and rederrick. Itís apparent that you donít have a crawler but youíre looking for ideas. Thatís cool.. But you may want to think about phrasing your questions differently in the future.

If you ask for help you will get it! lotís of it (most great advise)
If you ask for a showdown IE (Bring it!) we will call you to the mat every time.

Boys will be boys..

Welcome to the Forum CM, I hope you enjoy your visits here, I know I always do.


Nothing!.. Hahahahaaa..

I have seen some pretty cool videos of nitro crawlers. This was 3 or 4 years ago though and I haven't seen many since and I suppose that is mainly due to most people going electric. It was pretty cool watching savages crawl though.


Savage: FLM Conversion, 6s, MMM, CC 1520.
Mini-T Pro: Micro Pro 6800kv, Lipo, HS-81mg, Dirt Hawgs
M18MT: Quark 33A, Y22S 6000kv, FP 2s Lipo
LRP S8-BX: RC-M Conversion, Tekin RX8 B1600KV, 6S.

Hey guys, this is a somewhat interesting project. I am not a nitro fan, but lets try and help him out. I have half a dozen maxx trucks and so do alot of other members here. Lets see what we can do for him!

Wild shot in the dark idea here:

If you really want a low ratio, and do not mind making some stuff, you could adapt a new emaxx tranny to the tmaxx. That way you could use the optional wide ratio 2 speed setup. It gets a low gear in 1st, very low. You would have to make up some sort of mech brake mount. And would not have reverse, and would need to add a shift servo if you wanted to use high and low gears.

Sounds interesting to me...

Nah, I could care less what you run. Not like I have to hear or smell it!!!

I like to see other peoples custom projects, nitro or electric. It beats looking at pics of peoples bolt together vehicles, no fun in that!!!

Also, try the crawler forums for max based crawlers and gear reduction ideas:

http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/index.php

We do love custom vehicles and trying new things, but this is a 99% electric forum after all. A nice reduction box of some sort would be cool, as would truggy ratio diffs to lower the overall drive ratio- need some FLM hybrid bulks, UE ultralites, or the LST/Muggy diffs for that.

I don't know how you would make it fit on a Maxx, but the portal axles from RC4WD would help lower your speed. They have a ratio of 1.5:1.
