    Lol... When I got my E-Maxx I took some pictures of it before I drove it because I liked it so much. That was a fun day! Too bad they're not digital...

    after the first few times the body gets scraped it is nerve recking (my babys getting hurt) but then they start add up in pride you when your out there with your buddys
    yep you see them scapes there this thing rolled about 20 times and walked it with just a few scrapes

    i have come to the conclusion that sliding on your lid is pretty tough on your lid but when you roll and then just back on your wheels it not really bad

    So, why won't this thing wheelie? Front wheels don't come off of the ground at all - in either gear. Using 2 new GP3300's from Radio Shack with a Duratrax Twin Charger. Tried two different charge cycles. Tires are glued. Tried on carpet, grass, dirt and concrete.

    You might have to tighten the spur gear, remove the gear cover and try to tighten the nut on the big gear, that is the spur gear.

    wow.. after adjusting the slipper, it has no problem doing a wheelie. I tightened the nut all the way down (spring totally compressed) then backed it out between 1/4 and 1/2 turn. Sound about right?

    I am SOOO happy with the E-Maxx. I had a touring car of another brand - which I had trouble with from day one. Because of those problems and due to limited places to run it... finally sold the thing on flea-bay. My son wants an E-maxx now... lol. Looks like I'll really be broke now! Thanks for the comments and help.
