Uploaded a couple of pics will get some more when my new kits come in.

First up the T-Maxx 3.3 currently down with a broken half shaft (driveshaft)



Next up the Summit



And last but not least this is what happens after a day of hard bashing haha my poor poor t-maxx has been through so much abuse and just keeps begging for more

Cool cars, and i looked at the Axials too.
I never heard of that brand before, but that's due to the different countries we live in.
They do some crazy stuff with that truggy,going on slopes and angles of 45o and more... :woohoo:

But you are right on the broken parts, Traxxas parts do break from time to time, but there's nothing like jumping and bashing with the Off-road cars.
When i got my Monstertruck, it was winter and i made snowchains and additional lights to begin with. Driving at night through the snow! :woohoo: :woohoo:
And I was so glad i bought a waterproof rc car then!





But the looks became a lot better in time,imo. :P

Yeah the axials will be fun cant wait for them to be here. and yeah some traxxas parts are real cheap haha. Before i even broke my t-maxx in i installed after market a arms on it. but just thinking in the year and a half ive had the t-maxx ive gone through.

1 Cooling Head
1 One Way Bearing (it welded itself to the shaft)
2 Rear Driveshafts

which I don't think is to bad really considering the jumps I take it off of and the rough landings I have had

I'd have expected more damage, seeing the beating my car has had, but that must be even harder with your T-maxx.
I gotto practice more, before i get a car like that...
First time i tried a skating park, was bad, but no damage!
And when i made my ramp, the first time i tried it, it was a bit too high, and my car was rocketed straight upwards. :ohmy:
Only keeping the hood in place was and is pretty hard.
I was glad when my Bull-bar and my rear wheeliebar arrived, for they have kept me from doing some real damage.

Them Axials must have a great torque, i am still amazed by the power with which they climb the rocks in the vids on their site.

Yeah the axials are really amazing, I kept seeing them at my hobby shop they have an indoor rock course and they are just so capable its amazing the things these trucks can go through.

Only bad thing is im going to have to waterproof it which kinda sucks but o well gonna have to buy some plasti dip and dip the Servo, ESC etc.

as far as your truck man i know what you mean traxxas stuff just takes a beating and keeps on going which is why i have always been a traxxas fan, yeah some parts are crap but its the stuff that matters that holds up and thats the important part haha


The SCX10 Trail Honcho out performed that actual crawler in my opinion and the Trail Honcho is only running stock 1.9 tires.

I don't mind a bit of RC car action now and then. Im partial to HPI cars. I have a Baja 5SC gas truck and a brushless electric (insanely overpowered right of the box!)Savage Flux HP. They both need a dust off and to driven again.
