    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!

    Fun build so far ya'll:

















    Just have to add the right brushless motor combo now! By the way, for all that are interested - I am an E-Maxx fan.

    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.

    Rain Dawg,

    Yep! The E-MAXX has been more fun, than a negative challenge, regarding progression in this Traxxas hobby. The popularity of the E-MAXX being manufactured (over the years with it's various upgrades) produced many after market parts to continue this monster truck's production by hobbyist. I think that may say something about the numerous people who purchased the Traxxas E-MAXX - due it's popularity.

    Okay - I know - many pictures, but it's an E-MAXX. That's why there are so many pics. This is E-MAXX #1 (my first upgrade for the 3905) being posted. Yes - Traxxas has inspired me!

    Rain Dawg, here's a picture of them prior to this last upgrade. Still looking at others as well to make this r. c.'s weight even less. However, this is a monster truck, so that’s why a certain brushless motor combo is an assignment as well. I like the E-MAXX monster trucks

    V-MAXX and E-MAXX is synonymous to me; cause' this is a chassis for E-MAXX:


















    Comma', it's obvious who inspired these builds: TRAXXAS E-MAXX.

    Working on these builds! A few years ago, I enhanced a certain vehicle I drove and assisted others in our car-club for auto shows. I was a privileged president of that car-club. One of the reasons I'm having fun with the Traxxas R. C. builds. Thank again Traxxas' for your E-MAXX!!

    Well - yet still upgrading Truck #1 and #2

















    I figured it out; hmm - all three E-MAXXs must have the same wheelie bars regarding this fun Traxxas hobby. Now, I can use all the original parts to rebuild the stock E-MAXXs. To me that's fun too! Okay, now remain E-MAXX FANS all of you in this forum. This is still one of the best R. C. Monster trucks ... period!

    Whew! It's been a few years accepting and supporting the E-MAXX and I'm still having fun ya'll!







    Okay, the MAXX is another nice R. C. Monster Truck via Traxxas. It's smaller, and a very small, similar version of the X-MAXX. However, I still like the Traxxas E-MAXX. I know there has to be more individuals that are yet interested in the E-MAXX. (Just my opinion-however)

    Very cool! My 3905 went into the light recently.

    Might have been the 3906 - I believe that came out first. Mine was circa 2000.

    I had alot of fun with it but couldn't find any parts to keep her running anymore. It was all original.

    TraxxasTigger,

    I bought two 3905 E-MAXX R. C. Monster Trucks in 2009 and gave one to one of my sons. Then one of my sons bought a 3905 and later he gave his to me.

    That giving and receiving of the E-MAXX 3905 inspired me to learn more about the E-MAXX. That's one of the reasons I have become a Traxxas E-MAXX fan.

    One more thing also, there is yet several stock-parts for the 3905 and aftermarket upgrade parts also online.

    I'm impressed with what you have and what you've done. I had the brushed twin titans - and the ESC went out. I think I even asked on here what I could do to save it. LHS's also didn't have any answers or ideas. I didn't get any beneficial answers - so off it went. It actually went with its brother (original tmaxx which is working) to a new home - as most parts can be used on both vehicles. The new owner (he builds and paints the real monster trucks) is friends with people in the monster truck realm and can pretty much make whatever he needs. They went to a good home.

    Mine had RPM arms and skid plates.

    They were replaced with a Maxx.

    I still have the OFNA Monster Pirate wheels and tires .. hoping to use them again!

    TraxxasTigger,

    Thank you for your exchange. I remember some of those OFNA parts as well that I purchased. The number one E-MAXX, which you may have seen in this forum, has OFNA's diffs. I needed 1/8th scale diffs for the three E-MAXX builds that I have. The builds are essentially 1/8th scale now.

    Oh - and have lots of fun with your MAXX!!

    This will be my first rebuild. I have those parts and they might as well be used for the first E-MAXX I purchased more than a decade ago! Traxxas' E-MAXX is a fun hobby to have.

    At lease from my research, the Orion R8 Pro X Extreme ESC is the best for what i want. Well - two of the four combos will be in the Maxx-Twinns. The fun in the hobby is research and building the trucks. So, I am having tons of fun.










    Yes, I am working on replacing some of the missing pics and I am showing pictures of the various brushless motor combos choices I am considering for these three, "fun to have E-MAXX" Monster Trucks.

    (1) Tekin GEN 2 2250 kv motor/RX8 GEN2 ESC -
    (2) Castle 2200kv motor/ Mamba Monster MXL-6s Brushless Power System -
    (3) Team Associated 2200kv Dynamic 8 motor/iX8 ESC and
    (4) Team Orion Vortex VST2 Pro 690 4P 1900-2500kv motor/Vortex R8 Pro X Extreme ESC.

    The above combos were the four I was looking at a few years ago. And now I'm looking at the latest brushless combos - many many more due to the brushless E-MAXX's impression on other manufactures.

    The latest brushless combos have advanced the progression of my brushless motors conception: especially since, I have only been upgrading and building everything except the sources behind remotely controlling these three builds. Oh well, still having E-MAXX fun though!

    As I'm sure you are aware, the Traxxas' E-MAXX has been inspirational to me throughout this hobby!
