Default How to make the E-maxx 16.8v +50mph ?! some help

Hi guys .........

i wonder how to make the e-maxx +50 mph ?? i still didnt buy it but i am looking for some help so that i can buy it all at once ... coz in my country dont sell traxxas stuff

- SO i have been looking for a dealer who is going to fix the VXL-3s on the new e-maxx ... but i didnt find ... any one knows who ??!!

- ALSO Buying only the VXL-3s will make the e-maxx +50mph ? or should i buy with it lipo battery ? or buying the most powerful lipo battery is enough without VXL-3s ??

Advice me guys ... wish you all the best

byyyyyy

Get a Castle Creations Monster Max and a Neu 1515 1Y with two 3s lipo packs wired for 6s.

check out www.rc-monster.com for all your needs.

since you need to ask what it will take to make an e maxx go 50+ i am assuming that you are not experienced in modifing rc cars and can also assume that you probably the best driver yet.
with that said if you do buy the proper motor, batteries and esc to do so you might want to save up to replace all the parts you are going to break when it gets out of control and wrecks.
even a good driver will have a very hard time controlling an e maxx at 50+ and will still wreck it if he isnt very careful.
one vxl motor and a 3s pack will not make it go that fast. i have heard of guys doing twin vxl motors with two 3s packs and they are supposedly very fast. like badassrevo said, get a nue motor,mamba monster esc and some good 2 or 3 s lipos depending on what motor you go with.
another good choice would be a novak 6.5 hv system but it will only get it up to about 38 or so if geared for speed runs.
