My pair of Gorillamaxx trucks - 08.22.2011, 11:56 PM

I haven't been around in some time, in fact far too long. Most of my time is spent on BYT but I love that this forum has a dedicated Gorillamaxx thread. Recently, I was fortunate enough to score some serious metal to complete my G4. BIG THANKS to Mike for parting with the highly coveted DUH towers.

Ultimate Maxx
Plan is to have an all around seriously powered Emaxx that can handle whatever I throw at it. The 6S Nanotech lipos make her scream and the Gmaxx suspension makes it unbelievable nimble.

Chassis & Components
Gorillamaxx G4
Unlimited Engineering Monoblock
FLM Hybrid bulks with HPI Lightning series differentials (43/13)
Gorillamaxx 3.3 suspension arms
DUH titanium shock towers
Unlimited Engineering Gen IV servo saver
RPM skid plates and bumpers

Electronics
MMM
Castle Creations 1520/1y 1600kv
Traxxas 2.4GHz TX/RX
Turnigy MG959 alloy servo x2
Castle Creations Blower Fan

Wheels, Tires & Suspension
HPI Tremor || Phaltline
Unlimited Engineering Racer X Supershocks

Battery
Turnigy NANOtech 3S 45C/90C 5000mAh x2

MISC
62t spur, 28t pinion
Hot Racing Double Slipper, Anodiz pads
Traxxas steel CVDs, HPI center CVDs
Lundsford titanium hinge pins

Stump-puller Maxx
I've called this one Stump-puller because the main goal is to pull my SUV. A lot of guys pull sedans with their Summits or modified nitros, but I'm going for 5,800 lbs. She is currently untested but all I need is a receiver, servo for the 2-spd trans and the dual 4S batteries.

Chassis & Components
Gorillamaxx G2
AcncM 7075 T6 aluminum bulkhead/skid/bumper combo
Ultramaxx 2-spd transmission
Integy aluminum diff cases FLM cups, spooled rear
Unlimited Engineering Knucklehead shock towers
RPM Arms and skid plates

Electronics
Dual Titan 775
Dual EVX-2
Traxxas 2.4GHz TX/RX
Futaba S3305 steering servo

Wheels, Tires & Suspension
RPM Stabl-Maxx wheels
R/C Raven aggressive tires
Team Bluestar aluminum threaded shocks

Battery
Turnigy 4S 20C 5000mAh x2

MISC
72t Robinson Racing slipper clutch
10t pinion
MIP center CVDs

Surprising how much longer the G4 chassis is over the standard length G2/G3

Hey Neil, fancy seeing you here,... :)

Bear in mind I added the monoblock to the G4 to give it extra stretch.

"Brooklin, NY" is in the states, isn't it?
So just get one from UE?
I mean, they are one of the few items that actually are in stock


edit:
By the way, by how much does that monoblock extend the chassis?

@Khalis:
Really love your trucks!
But for the stump puller you should have gotten two CC1717s when they were for sale last year

Tired of looking at Gorillamaxx trucks? Well not me.

I just sold more or less all parts from my Gorilla, besides the G4 chassis,Garc bulks and diffs, just to start over with a new Gorilla project. What else to do when the chassis is not available anymore

Excellent builds, and I would really love a set of 3,3 Gorilla arms on my coming build. George come back to us...

Sadly they are the older design rather than the swept back/forwards G3.3 design, but they are still rather tasty- the blue anodize will come off easily with some oven cleaner...

I won those arms, diffs, and towers.
Me and my nephews are going to build it with the blue G2 chassis I won from the same seller (Matt T.).
After I build this I'm going to put a monoblock ext on my G4 and shake off the moth balls and run it at my track, only 1 shelf queen at a time!
