Unhappy Duratrax Maximum ST

I have a Maximum ST. I am not entirely new to nitro but I dont know jack about this truck. Can anyone help me with some aftermarket parts, optional control arms if possible, tires and rims.

Wich type of tires work best for loose dirt and lots of gravel.

Do a search on tower hobbies for the maximum st, you will find many parts for it.

As for hop-ups, there aren't many if you have the St Pro version.

For tires, I stick mostly to Pro-line's but am open to suggestions.

I have a set of their street tires and just ordered a set of off road tires also.

The street tires are very sticky, and make my ST Pro handle like a dream...

If you have the stock ST, let me warn you. The chassis bends VERY easily, well, at least mine did. You will notice a HUGE increase in speed and acceleration if you pick up the DuraTrax bearing kit and the steel spur gear. Be careful though with the mesh between the clutch bell and spur gear if you get the steel one. It is very important that you get it just right or the spur gear will eat the clutch bell alive. Also, get a set of the MIP CVDs for it, they look great and help tremendlessly.

What are the part numbers for the MIP CVD's, and what is involved for the conversion.

I have heard of this before, but couldn't get anyone to answer my question on how to do it or what to order.

Here are links to the parts I suggested.

Bearing Set
CVD's (DuraTrax, not MIP)
Steel Spur Gear

As for the conversion to the CVD's, nothing is hard. Basically remove the dogbones and cups from the hub carriers and install the CVD in their places.

Greg,

Thanks for the info, my truck already had the CVD's from the factory. Although I think I need to replace one soon...

I already have the bearing sets and will place an order for the steel spur gear on my next order.
