Serum posts!!

for the shafts I use Losi 8ight- t 2.0 shafts and dxr8 stub axles. You have to mill out your outer bearing slot for bigger bearings.8x16. I have an online friend that does it, I can get you in touch with him. That goes for anybody. I have been waiting to post this info up on my thread. I still have a few steps before my maxx is perfect.

Sounds like a serious tweak Kcaz! Is UE out of business? no more 8mm CVD's from them?

I stranded some time ago on using buggy steering knuckles on RPM arms for my previous max.. It used beefy 14mm balls (combination of a hard coated aluminum ball and a steel threaded screw).

Lol, yeh, indeed. I'm getting the cars up and running again, and thought of the warm and gentle atmosphere of this lovely forum. I now have 2 lovely sons, so i've got a hell of an excuse to get them up and running again.

The oldest one is totally into trucks, speed and loves to wrench. Youngest one is too young to realize anything.. :)

Hey Guys,

@Serum Yes this Shocks are very nice. I use tow rear (~120mm long) set of them. You can buy them in one bag with everything in it. You must look, that you buy the set's with the TiNi Shockshaft because there are diffrent set on the market.
This is the part no.: T08689
I use the Asso Shock Bushing 89083. The hole is a littel bit to small for the UE Shockmount. I file out them a littel bit and now they work perfekt.

@Kcaz25 are the Losi 2.0 Driveshafts and Axels still working with the truetrack?
Can I see some pictures of your truck?

I found my new Brushless System for my truck. I use the Xerun150A ESC and a Tenshock X812L with 2150kv. It was to heavy for my buggy but it must works gerat at the Maxx.

I think my Maxx will run again this year but it is still a lot of work.

Hello!

I have some small new so I want to show you some photos.

First I change the UE Upper Arms. (Thx Serum!)

I think I must polish them again, but now I have some good tips. I love this forum!
Then I installed the new Slipper. This is the Hot Racing Alu Slipper and I love this Part. It is much better then the stock one. I use it now since 3 years with now issuse. The Spur gear is still my first one and 6 years old.


and build it together

I use loctite to hold the Pads on the Slipper.




And here is the new Motor for this Truck.

If klick on the Pictures you can see it in a bigger size.
Now I only need a new Motormount, Bumpers, Skidplates, Body, ESC, Turnbuckles and Wheels.

RC in general is pretty expensive for me :)
But luckily it is my only hobby ( until I have an 1:1 car I am afraid :) )

Hey Mr. E-Maxx,
Just caught your thread and read through it.
UE (Unlimited Engineering) does have 8mm and 6mm Cvds in stock right now.
Unfortunately these newer Cvds from UE were made in China in order to keep the price down. Still the toughest Cvds available. They're a direct fit for your UE diffs drive cups if you use the older 3906 rpm knuckles and not the newer brushless Emaxx RPM knuckles.

Some late advice: GA (Great Assembly) bulkheads are the best you can buy.
They're $150 for the thick 7075 bulks shipped free in the U.S.
You can also get the GA 6061 bulks for $95, both sets come with bulk spacers. FLM sales 6061 bulkheads.

I hate to see an EZRun motor or Esc in a cool Maxx truck. Get a tekin set up, that's what I've used in all my Gorillamaxx G4 trucks. Never had a single issue. Runs strong, runs hard.
Those shocks look pretty cool, are they 16mm with aluminum bodies and collars? How do they work out for you on big jumps?
I have Proline Powerstroke shocks in my 3 Gorillamaxx trucks.
Best shocks available for the Maxx trucks especially at the track.

I've built some pretty cool Emaxx and if you have any questions you can hit me up.
Ps, Gorillamaxx is out of business, been so for more than 6,7 years now.
UE is still in business and you can order a full set of 8mm Cvds right now if you like, as long as you live in the US, I've heard that Robyn (owner of UE, doesn't ship outside the U.S.).


[1] Gorillamaxx G4 w/Flexteks
[1] Gorillamaxx G4 w/RacerX
[1] Gorillamaxx G4 w/G3.3

Hey Guys,

@ ruudxd you are rigth. Rc is very expensive. I have 3 car's now. A DEX408V2, D8T Tessmann with Tekno and my E-Maxx. For me 3 car's are to much. I will sold my DEX soon.
And the spur is the Stock Plastik one and 7 years old now.

@tinuss ture words. I love it to see all this nice parts and ideas in the Maxx world.

@ Justinbolin Last Year I want buy some GA Bulks and UE Shafts but they didn't ship to germany so I must buy what I can get here.
The Tenshock Motor is very nice in a Monster. It is a 6Pole Motor and has a lot of torque. Obvious more then the Tekin in my D8T. (2000kv) You can't compare this Motor with a Hobbywing. I have tested the Tenshock in the D8T on my local race Track and it was way over powerd on 4s. But I think in a Monster with bigger wheels this motor is the rigth choice.
I never run the Truck with Team C Shocks, but they feel very nice and smoth.

Hi Guys!

@tinuss thanks for that offer. I will get back to you if I need some help.

I got some new Parts for my Maxx today!

Here is the new FLM Motormount with a Tenshock X812L 6Pole motor.


The new front Bulkheads made by FLM too.

I love these new Bulks. They fit definitely better then the TRX Bulks.

And the new Skidplates.


The V-Maxx Skidplates have very nice detail. For Exsample a little hole for the Diffinputshaft. Or some weight reduction.

Here my new Custrom Shocktower for my D8T Tessmann Race Truggy.

Awesome work Mike. I love it!

Hi Guys!

Thanks Mike!

I need some help with my Diffs. I have some UE Ultralite Diffs with 6 Spyder Gears. Now my Outdrives had a lot of play so I need a new bevel-gear and Diff Case. I think Ofna Hyper 7.5 or Hyper SSe must be rigth. Are HB Diffs better then the Hyper Diffs?
Does anyone have experience with it?
