As a long time supporter of traxxas trucks when they have the right money invested in them but a long time hater of the stock product for beginners, (ie more user friendly carb would be nice and some updates to the tires to something that could be used and a actual high tq steering servo and alluminum bodied shocks) I really hope this doesn't dissapoint. I have owned 4 maxxes over the years and those have been must upgrades. I understand costs are an issue but look at what HPI did to their truck for the same price.

Don't forget the drive train. PLastic parts in the drive train just does not cut it guys. Produce something that does not have to be upgraded right out of the box.

The proline race really gets under my skin if you are talking about the maxx challenge. Its an MT race with a 10 minute A main for MT's and 30 minute A mains for 1/8 scales and 1/10 scale trucks, not exactly what some people drove across the country for.

Gearhead, I imagine it still would have. For around 1k total investment, a maxx can be a SICK race truck and that 1k includes the 400 to buy the truck. You could cut some corners and do it for a few 100 less but at the same time, why not give it the best. I still run plastic arms and sliders on my race truck for weight savings and they last me just fine. As an RTR truck though, it leaves things to be desired for a noob who is going to break the truck several times over and then get a bad taste in his mouth so to speak over durability. Just a few essential upgrades would make an all around happier customer from an RTR standpoint. Just so the guys who are learning can make mistakes like they will and not break.

The Maxx has displayed it is a winner time and time again on the track. We have proven we have an awesome truck that is a winner with parts you can buy over the counter.

Has anyone else?

I think you misunderstood JR. The maxx is a great truck with a superior product support network. Traxxas is at the forfront of customer service without a doubt. But to say that the T-Maxx won both events is a bit misleading. The events in question were rained out prior to the mains being run. Yes they did TQ and due to that they were awarded the win. Could a "Stock" T-maxx have won the events? Yes depending on the drivers involved it is possible I suppose.

As far as your question JR. No, no one has steped up to the plate.

I can understand what you are saying Maxx but remember, every big race goes off the TQ winning if the event is rained out.

Is this the winners fault or should they be faulted for winning?

I think most people don't want to take the time to setup and learn to drive a T-Maxx. Fortunatly, everyone is lucky that Steve has posted his setup which is a HUGE headstart in getting one ready to race. With a little practice and one setup similar to Slaydens anyone can be competitive (even in the unlimited class).

But back to the topic at hand. 1 HR until the big news.
