    Well, finally started the upgrade for the number-one-truck. This was my first E-MAXX - it is a 3905. The Traxxas E-MAXX became my preference above other R.C.'s. The top pic was how it looked after it's first aftermarket purchase - a new body. The last pic is how it looks now. The aluminum chassis will be anodized black to begin the brushless upgrade process.

    Working on the # one truck upgrades still. Researching diffs again for the FLM hybrid chassis cases. Requires a bit more looking than preciously.

    Well, as soon I discover another process to upload more pics, I will show pictures of the progress for number 1&2 FLM upgraded trucks - plus the V-MAXX chassis build. It has been loads of fun you'll!

    Interesting thing since being in NorCal: there has been many R. C. stores closing in the region. Will have to go on line still for parts like I did in the Mid-West. Oh well, it's a fun hobby not a living though. Still making progress on the upgrades and will be posting more pics.

    Looking forward to posting these upgrades, cause there are two: but, a third E-MAXX is built from scratch. I'm looking for those brushless-combos like I was from the very beginning of this post! Still having fun though with the Traxxas' E-MAXX!

    I have been researching and having fun still. These are E-MAXXs, to me it's enjoyable still!:


















    Boy, these upgrades have been a lot of fun! Not finished yet though. Thank you again and again - Traxxas!

    Man these are impressive, I would be scared to run one and damage it. I would be interested in a weight total of one of these when your done just for curiosity, awesome job.

    Hey Rain Dawg!

    Your weight question is also one of the research directives I've had to do. I've talked to a major manufacture of brushless-combos regarding the weight issue. Yes, they provided the information. With all the non-Traxxas upgrades I've purchased, I yet had fun building so far cause' info has been provided.

    These E-MAXX builds became an alternative, not to Traxxas only, but to me. I use be founder and president of a car-club in California: that's why this E-MAXX hobby has been so much fun for me as well.

    I said this multiple times; "I am an E-MAXX fan" which is due to Traxxas' overall design of their E-MAXX R. C. Monster Truck!

    Hi Stack!

    I am looking for similar answers to your questions. I trust someone will assist you (us) with these questions.

    Ok guy's I hope this is what you were asking for. You need the 6533 receiver with blue tooth module and 6528 tx and no it's not water proof, it needs to go in the receiver box.Then you will need the (6521 long) or (6523 short) temp and volt sensors with the 6535 to secure the temp sensor to the motor. The 6541 is required unless unless you solder directly to the red esc battery wire. If you want speed and rpm you will need (6520 long) or (6522 short) and depending on which rig your installing on you might need this also 6537 which attaches to the spur gear cover and 6538 that mounts to the spur gear.

    Read the receiver it says where to connect volts and rpm and I put the red power tap connector inside my receiver box so it stays water proof not outside like the video shows. I hope this helps.

    2ch - ch1's steering
    ch2 - esc
    ch3 - fans or whatever
    ch4 - fans or whatever
    ch5 - fans or whatever

    I know this is for the slash but the procedure is pretty universal.

    Thanks Rain Dawg!

    You've helped me to recall what I had forgotten regarding one of those builds. I had purchased a receiver, I think, late last year or earlier this year. I trust this information will also assist Stack as well!

    No problem, looking forward to seeing the finished projects. Thanks goes to guy's like you and all the rest of the Emaxx owners who post and keep this truck alive.
