Default Have an old E-maxx, getting back into it.

I used to be pretty into RC cars, and im thinking of getting back into them. I have a traxxas E-maxx with novak brushless system that I got like 4 years ago, and the brushless i got about 2 years ago. The car is pretty screwed= the whole front end is jacked up, it barrely turns, the two front wheels are facing each other. On the Chassis, the antenna holder broke, so the antenna is just flopping around right now. And the shocks are screwed up. I was just gunna ask if anybody has any suggestions on what to do and how to fix it, because I was thinking of getting a gorilla MAXX racing suspension to fix the front end, but it was a little expensive, so im open to ideas on that. And I was also looking into getting some Road Rage tires and just a new plastic chassis for the car. Thanks for any advice. And if you guys think its more worth it to buy a new car, just tell me, im open to the idea.

i would totally just suggest you get a new e-maxx 3905 roller(not electronics) or a e-revo roller i see them go on ebay for 110 ive also seen a 3905 e-maxx roller go for 70. just pay attention to ebay and at the bottom of the front rctech page scroll down and look for the wanted adds. and post new thread for wanting e-maxx roller or something like that. that is probably going to be the best and easiest way of doing it. sounds like the car you have needs a lot of work.

I bought a used Emaxx a couple of yrs ago and its taken a bunch to get it in shape. I replaced bulks, diffs, drive axles and strg knuckles with stuff from a 3.3 and the diffs from a 16.8. Even off Ebay, that cost about half again what I paid for it used. Yours sounds like it has otehr probs as well. I would look for another, a 16.8 roller or rtr if your electronics are not too good.

At least that way, the upgrades you wind up making are improving things instead of fixing probs. I have an older G2R and the revo front end - they're not real good to bash - arms break too easy - have to buy RPM, and I've even broken a few if them.
