Step by step my 2nd monster is waking up !!! (pics, vids and lists) - 11.23.2009, 12:12 PM

I have started this thread on the Traxxas forum in November, 2008.
I wanted to share it with you, enlightened members of RC-Monster forum !!

Here is the original thread : http://monster.traxxas.com/showthread.php?t=446979.

And here are the latest pics I took today :













And face to face with my E-Maxx :


And my vids : http://www.youtube.com/user/123456saucisse.

The build thread has started in November but the truck was RTR only in May...
I just used it about ten times
We will see if it will still look great after a bash session in a skate park

These are common tire/rim setups for these 1/10-scale MTs
And I like these setups, work great. I don't like huge tires such as 40 series ones. Personal choice, hey !

It's common, in that picture they just looked small. It really is personal preference, I like my tires HUGE.

ive been thinking about a new set of bash tyres, the talons never ware out but are made from thin rubber and tear off the rims.
wanting some 40 series mashers but have to think of a way to prevent ballooning (tape is no good), thought about cutting a few slits in them and running a ring of fishing line around them in the slits made in the tread, thus concealing the line from damage and providing a strong anti-ballooning device.

Zack taped his 40 series Mashers and he says there is no ballooning :http://www.rc-monster.com/forum/show...=19881&page=23 (post 342). As you can see there are already some slits so it will be easy to install fishing lines or sturdy rubber bands.

I will soon test new bash tires : IMEX Swamp Dawg (http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXWFW0) still with Maximizer beadlocks.

New vid !!

It was cold outside (again...) but I couldn't resist
Enjoy : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_X_Gdy2tD4.

Broken parts :
- Rear bumper mount
- Body
- Tool box

And no stripped spur gear thanks to the HPP bracket
