Readers’ Rides: Traxxas E-Maxx [September 2012]

Aug 02, 2012 7 Comments by









Traxxas E-Maxx: Joe has us all seeing red with this amazing E-Maxx with an Ultimate Engineering Super Maxx conversation.  He spent the last couple of years collecting parts to build this truck using an insane amount of UE aluminum parts.  Inside, a Hitec 5990TG servo steers all that heavy metal under the control of a Spektrum DX3R Pro.  For motivation, Joe installed a Tekin RX8 and 2250Kv motor powered by a pair of Turnigy LiFe packs.  To finish off this behemoth of a project, he had nearly the entire truck custom anodized red and black with marble anodizing on the wheels and tranny case.

        Thanks Erich!! It sure was fun to build and it drives great!

        Thanks for the sweet prize! Going to try my hand at SC racing this winter so that is going to be handy to have a awesome Novak ESC to run.

        RC Car Action rocks! Love getting the mag in the mail box every month.
