    Vwbug's Emaxx brushless

    Hey guys I just thought I would finally make a forum about my emaxx. It started live as a brushed emaxx back in 2011 when I bought it brand new. It has gone through about 8 motors so I didn't want to have the same slow motors and needing to go buy 2 more motors in a couple months. So I then took the 300 dollar jump to brushless. I purchased a brand new mamba monster 2! I was so pumped but I was running nimhs so I wansnt getting all the performance that was there and I couldn't buy any lipos because I didn't have the cash for them. Then I got a summer job . Then I got my paycheck and this past Friday I purchased lipos. I bought 2 6500mah 65c 2s lipos. Im thinking it is gonna fly! They should be here Monday .

    Upgrades so far;
    RPM;
    -A-arms (just front)
    -Shock towers
    Proline ford raptor body
    Proline trencher x's
    Castle Creations Mamba Monster esc
    Castle Creations 2200kv motor
    Shocks, 45wt front and rear
    Titanium shock pistons rear only
    Stainless steel screw kit

    To be upgraded;
    Shocks (accepting Ideas)
    New driveline components (when or If the stocks fail)
    RPM true track kit
    RPM Bulk Heads
    RPM skid plates
    New servos? (accepting Ideas)
    Possibly new body??(also accepting Ideas)
    most things will be upgraded if broken
