It's by a company called Xtreme. I just installed it last night and it's SO cool looking!!!! Went together really well, too!

If you don't have an upgraded chassis, I would REALLY consider this one...

TPhalen: Just ran the E-Maxx with the SR + twin stock Titan motors... it sucked!!! I was smoked by a kid running the stock EVX set-up. I'm planning to get twin good motors since the local track have now considered an "open" class for monster trucks to give way for those with Clodz and Jugz with mod motors... what motors do you suggest for (parallel) set-up with my Super Rooster?? Also what gearing (pinion) with the stock 66T spur?? I was looking at Kyosho AF 17x2s with the 5x5mm brushes however they're not available here... could I just go for standard (brush) Yokomo Pro Stock II 17s instead?? Thanks.

Heh heh....

Impulsive: the twin Titan motors will NOT work well with the SR's. The Titans are a 14.4v system, while the SR's are a 12v. You WILL need to upgrade the motors to regular 05 size stock or modified motors.

I finished my Xtreme chassis conversion this weekend. 18 cells, dual 9x2's, dual LRP v7.1 ESC's...thing LOOKS bad ass!!! I will run it later this week, I hope. I have to find a way to charge the 9 cell packs (my Millinium only does 8...?!?!)

Sometime in early Feb (I think it's the 16th & 17th) Lake Perris R/C Raceway is gonna have an outdoor race. We should get some T/E-Maxxes out there to do a little demo....

At long last the weather finally permitted me to run the mighty emaxx again (its been too cold lately). Damn that truck is awesome. Me and my friend set up a 4 foot ramp at a 60 degree incline and sent that thing soaring. It must have been at least 8 feet in the air! and it soaked up the landings beautifully. This marks the first time that I have driven the truck and not broke a single part!

Hey Tony, have you talked with KG from Wild hobbies lately? Let me know when you get your care package. It should prove to be a very worthy hop-up.

Default What I need

That's one thing I need.....Stickers. It's been a pain trying to get anything done with my local sticker places. I noticed you mentioned a hardcore .21 kit in a previous post. Do you use any of the JT Racing Products line?

Initially, I was going to purchase a Hardcore .21 conversion since I could get a good price on it. Kerry and Adam turned me on to the JT kit, and they actually hooked me up with a JT .21 conversion. I'm trying to get some of the other JT products to complete the conversion (I'm not that big on mixing and matching companies products)....price or not, I'd rather support someone who is willing to let me run their setups. I will be hitting alot of the E/T-Maxx races this year, so, if you get some stickers or whatever I'd be more than happy to display them!

I just installed the Pro-Line suspension
kit on my TMaxx. They did a good job on
the kit. I only race my truck on asphalt
parking lot tracks, in S Florida.. With
Pro-Line Road Hawg tires this will be
killer. Anyone have an exhaust pipe
recomendation, CVEC, Stinger, Paris? I
have an OS .15 CV on it now with a CVEC
pipe.
Yes guys, you want to swap out the stock
steering servo for a REAL decent one, and
maybe try an aluminum steering bell-crank
with bearings, like MegaTechs, makes for
quick response.
