Default new guy here

Hello fellow rc people the names Hollow and I'm new here. So I figure its only right to let everyone know what I'm working with. Right now I am currently building a t maxx 4907 chassis. Weird story on how this all came into play. I bought a old t maxx pro .15 off a friend for 50 bucks and the thing was horrible. Had a blown motor with no backing plate missing 3 springs and a few misc brokken pieces that I just tossed. I have a nitro sport pro .15 that I stole a few parts from and I got the maxx running kind of. I then realized that it was a total beef cake and started to upgrade things. First upgrade I got was 3.3 arms towers and the belcrank steering. Once all that was put on the old frame I realixed a few things. The steering was interfering with the reverse servo and my gas tank was busted. So I started a new build. I figured might as well so I bought a 4907 chassis and swaped my old skool 4910 parts over. I am currently at a stand still because of funds but ill post pics of my current progress.

It wasn't too bad mine was before the 3.3 lol. About 8 or 9 years ago. It's all fun just takes time . It was a little here little there type project. Racers edge chassis, proline wide arms and shock towers, forward only conversion,sirio 18,etc etc. My son in law is running it now with a 3.3 in it.

I believe you need 10 posts first. Go to the FAQ's it will explain exactly how.

I got a ue tmaxx all made by robin of unlimited engineering.



I think you either need 10 or 30 posts before pics.

Uploading pics from phone. For iPhone
Download photobucket
Sign up
Go to upload media
Tap all pics you want uploaded
Let upload
Tap image
Tap I bottom right corner
Tap image code (then says copied)
Paste it in here
For more images repeat the 4 steps


I recommend using these parts / prices on eBay.
Diffs 3.3 rebuilt and shim (will last a long time) 20 for both
Traxxas cvds 15-60
Traxxas center cvd 10-30
3.3 trans gray/grey 10-30
Rpm fr knuckle or tekno 15-25
Flm Or ue towers 30-50
Rpm arms truetrac rear20-40
3.3 grey/gray bulks 15-20 for both ft/rr
4 ofna shocks. 25-40
New tmaxx extended chassis 10-25
Traxxas red tube turnbuckle 15-20

This is a basic roller

You can pick most of this stuff up cheap on eBay
This would be a good low budget bash/race setup.
