    Big Block E-Maxx With Xo-1 full electric. Straight for the XO-1

    I installed the Xo-1 system in my Emaxx today . The the black can and esc straight from one of my Xo-1's
    That motor looks really huge in a e maxx and took some modding to do. I have used all the sensors except
    For the rpm speed which I will order for the max. I have the esc unlocked and the smallest pinion I could get on there is a 28 tooth lol. I ran it today and the motor temp did not pass 87f .
    Will post pics later

    Nice!! I'd like to see your mount... Also did you cut the back of the esc with the capacitors or did you trim the chassis to get it to fit... Are you planning on doing speed runs?

    Thanks making a video today. I have driven it a few times a I love it! I have had revos summits. Savage flux and pretty much Every thing you can name, but the emaxx with this combo is so fun. I can run in tall grass and it still keeps cool, had so much Fun with this truck

    See a lot of stock components on the car, can't imagine that's going to last too long surely.....

    Well I have a summit, slash 4wd with a mamba on 6s and never had a problem. All in the driving and throttle control.
    I have driven this over 5 times so far and everything is good so far.

    Btw this motor does not fit I had to make it work and a 28 pinion is the smallest it will accept but still runs at good temps

    A stock Slash 4x4 on 6s mamba not breaking diffs and drive shafts??
    Then you're surely not using all power, and at the same time driving very uhm - conservatively

    Lol sometimes I get it to full but its hard with all that power but I look at it like this if I have a 700hp engine in my real car
    And I I just stomp on the gas all the way every time I drive something's gonna break and I can't blame it on the ride
    Only think I have with steel shafts is my xo-1 and my savage flux other than that everything is plastic

    I'm curious.
    You claim on FB
    I can run 65+ with no heat issues
    Is that mph or kmh?
    Seems real fast for an E-maxx on stock (really soft) suspension and Trencher 40..

    Trenches by surprise hold up to speed really well and they are not taped, a guy at my local shop has run his max at 77 and they balloon but hold up really good

    Sorry - but I look at an E-Maxx that's hardly ever been run. Not a scratch on any parts, nearly unused Trencher 40 (still sharp edges on thread pattern).
    If this setup was ever driven, I should be surprised. It could be, that it was slowly babied for a short distance, but that would be it.
    In case this setup was giving a fair amount of throttle, the torque would bend drive shafts on the spot, eat the diffs and maybe even kill the transmission too.
    And 70 mph on Trencher 40 and that soft suspension - that'll be the day.

    I wouldn't know any "padrino"
    Actually I find it really inspiring when someone post a build - that's how I got inspired to my EMBUE build.
    But when someone post and claim extra ordinary facts such as a brandnew looking, without a single scratch E-Maxx doing 65 mph (sorry, not 70 mph) on Trencher 40 and really, really soft red springs my internal BS alarm goes off

    I could be all wrong though - so let's see this monster do some bashing and speedruns then
