The NEW E-maxx snow bash!

I bought a E-maxx 16.8v a few weeks ago and today i got to test the "water-proof" electronics. It passed with flying colors. I even ran it into a deep (5 inches) puddle and it did great. no hiccups. I ran 6 batteries through it and she is holding strong. It absolutely rips, we clocked it on dry pavement. It tops out at 41 mph. (buddy is a cop, LOL) Mods: RPM- A Arms, shock towers, skid plates. 64 tooth spur gear, 14 tooth pinion, venom 5000 mah batts (and some 3000 mah's) I also snapped a few pics of my truck... because i'm the R-F pic ***** lately.

Here she is...

Are you running lipos in your emaxx? i have the same thing and im running batteries that are cheaper and more powerfull than the ones your running right now... they might be something you would want to look into.

Oh the joys of a radio controlled hobby. Fun to mess with but quite expensive.

I have Rhino 4900mah 20c 2s batteries. Not sure if youre running lipos already but If you run lipos you will have to have a Low Voltage Cutoff. The LVC is about $25 and the batteries are about $40 a piece. I will get a link for the batteries and the LVC.

The only problem with these batteries is you will need to do some minor trimming. I can post some pictures if you like of the trimming I had to do. You should get a little more run time with these batteries because they hold a little bit more that 5000mah in them. They have great punch. If youre running the Traxxas connectors you'll need a set of female connectors for the batteries because they come with deans.

Heres the batteries:

^This place is in Hong Kong and they rape you with shipping. ($25)

Low Voltage Cutoff:

Not sure if youre running lipos already but if your not youll need a balancer. I have a good balancer that was fairly cheap. Ill get a link for it too.

LOL. I've owned three emaxxs and never have burned a motor or esc up. They are great trucks. RC is expensive. Period. I'm getting a muggy for racing unless I find a good race setup for the maxx
