Default TMAX 3.3 IN MN

A question for you tmax owners. What do you guys think of this. I live in minnesota and want to buy a MT for me and my son. We want a truck we can drive in the winter as well as summer. That being said it is going to see some snow. I am thinking that with sealed gearbox and the plastic drive shafts there is less chance for drivetrain corrosion. I also plan on packing some heavy grease around the bearingsto help keep snow and water out. Any thoughts or suggestions on thid will be very helpful.

If you are running in cold weather you can wrap aluminum foil around the cooling head to keep the heat in.

You can also wrap water balloons or condoms, yes condoms, around your servos to keep the water out of them. Traxxas now has waterproof servos on the new emaxx and you could use those too. They are part number 2056.

How does this truck stack up to a HPI Savage X SS?

Monster GT.. I have the TMaxx and Revo also. All good trucks. For running in the snow and almost plowing snow, nothing matches the power of the MGT.. For snow, I recomend getting IMEX Swamp dog tires. Mine floats across snow!

Here is a pic of my MGT. Just a couple of mods.

personally i have had the best luck with the tmaxx. i live in a place that sees snow. i have played with mine with other friend that have savaged and all these other awesome 4x4 trucks but mines still smoked them in the snow rain averything. now that could be that i am a better driver then them but still. tmaxx is the way to go there are so much more stuff to get for it and make it a fun little project toy for even your son.

Thanks for the info, I eneded up getting a revo in the end. I think the drivelines are very similar to the tmaxx though. It tears butt through the snow man. I tried to get some AE black grease on all the exposed bearings so I am hoping we dont wreck to much from the snow.
