    Proper Maxx

    Well a few nights ago I came across a .35 engine with a prop on it, which was sitting on top of my old maxx chassis. A little lightbulb came on and Proper Maxx was born. Kind of fun to drive different for sure.







    Not to be eh?

    Here is a short clip of it in action (In the shop buzzing around) here

    It is a handful to say the least I have not yet got it up to speed not enough room where I have been playing. I will be building a shroud around the prop to help direct air and protect the prop from flips, and in case it gets near anybody (Saftey first ALWAYS)

    put some wings on it so it just barely skims the ground. then you can still use the wheels to steer and use the wings fly off jumps.
