    The hot bodies shocks rock! Best shocks for the maxx now that the powerstrokes are discontinued

    I have CVD's on the way for the truck, I'm just going to run offset rims to make it a little wider.

    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    @the integy comments. I've been running the same bulkheads and servo mounts for 2 years now. Trust me, if I got a bad set of integy I wouldnt be running it. I've been racing for 4 years and know when to stop using a product.

    i really like it, not so much the wing but i like how you have the essentials. Are those arms RPM?
    A lot is two words. Alot is not a real word.

    Yes the arms are RPM. The wing really helps with downforce, it is also a quick handle for marshals at any race.

    I think you're gonna be disappointed with the Integy bulks. But other than that, that's one sweet ride. I highly recommend using FLM's or GA's, and the UE Gen IV servo saver too.

    I knew I forgot something. I have the proline performance servo saver. I've ran the integy bulks for 2 years. But once they go out my LHS has a nice set of Jet racing bulks that I wouldnt mind trying out.

    Not at all. All of the FLM parts are claimed to be lighter then stock, the only things that are heavier are the arms, engine/pipe, the RPM carriers and bulkheads

    Looks like a great race maxx. The only thing is though, it would probably be better with a jp-2 or jp-3 pipe. It would also look a lot better. Get the Hpi junk off of the T-maxx. Heh, anyways, good luck racing it. Oh, and your body is missing the stickers.
    I'm so smrt. D'oh!

    It looks like that thing should handle pretty darn well at the track. Let us know how it handles. Oh and it looks great.

    @rcmastermind-The HPI pipe gives me plenty of power, and I dont mind how it looks. Maybe later on in the season I'll try out something new. And the body never came with headlight/taillight stickers. next one I'll mask them off and paint them
    @chevy72tk- It is a hot bodies lightning staium truggy body.
    @t-maxx racer- I'm not exactly sure how long it is... I'll look into it.

    Wow, nice truck dude. Im also a racer (only for start of second year now). Looks like you know what your doing. Maybe you got some tips for me. I got a fairly stock t-maxx 3.3 with some hop ups (alum. bulkheads, foc, pullstart, crimefighter tires, hi torque steering servo, big bore shocks). Next upgrade will be a radio system. Got any ideas what to get? What other things should i do to my truck to make it better for racing?

    Practice is the key. Also, get your truck as light as possible and have it setup for your track. If you have msn add me and we can talk more.

    Thanks for the tips. I will start with taking the bumpers off, the battery box and get a reciever pack. What other things are necessary? I know the recievr box should come off, but i think it will be a good thing to keep in case fuel or water hit it. Are you a sponsored racer?

    Thanks.

    Now he's the real test question:
    How much does it weigh?

    Your truck looks a little on the heavy side to me, but the actual weight will tell all.
    It's funny until someone hurts themself then it's hilarious!

    @maxxrcer- I race Monster truck, 1/10 electric truck, and 1/10 2wd gas truck. I'd say eighth-ish in Canada. Dont know an official rank.
    @Big Trux- I'm not exact on the weight. But the fast lane machine stuff (shock towers, chassis) Are claimed to be lighter then stock. I also have lightened it by going to 4 shocks, removed battery box/receiver box, bumpers and the wheels and tires are alot lighter. I see your from calgary... Do you race at all?

    I run the aluminum ladder bars that you have to run with the chassis. From fast lane machine. They have the four points spread across the chassis for better all around support. Out of those two I suggest the integy ones, I've seen a set of those at my work (LHS) and they look really beefy. And yes, I have raced in the states before. Most likely you heard the name "tessman" in the states from Canada. The kid just turned 14 and is making a-mains already.

    Ahh. Cool. Yea that reminds me now, Ty Tessmann?? I think i talked his Dad at a race down here. They own a hobby shop right? Yea, great guys, great to see a family in the sport with such great sportsmanship. That kid is unreal. 14 I wish i had speed skills like him (dont we all). How you compare to him? When you racing in the states next?

    Yea, they own a hobby shop up here. I'm getting to be as fast as him. I have quite the ways to go though. In 2wd electric truck after a 5 min race I'll be about half a lap down. The next race in the states I plan to attend is the hot rod hobbies shootout. Sorry for the late reply on the thread, I dont have much computer time anymore.
