    E/Maxx Into Truggy Converstion

    Started by rebuilding my diff's and Lowering my shocks with cut fish tank hoes.

    then i used the Revo wing mount for my wing and designed a clamp with a broken skidplate.

    Now, just want to know what kind of tires would look good on it. Any suggestions?

    Do you have any plans for a custom chassis and 1/8 center diff?
    I'm so far behind, it looks like I'm winning.

    Justcustom extended my cyassis with aluminuim about a inch and a 1/8. Brought revo center driveshaft to use for the extention.
    I only brought HR aluminium diff cups and shim my gears that connect to driveshafts and they work fine for me( so far). But, if they go up again, then ill have to do some research and get 1/8 diff's. Any recommondations?

    For 1/8 conversion you want to pick up some hobao/ofna hyper 7 differentials or hobao spider 8 diffs and shims (8x10x0.1, and 13x16x0.2) and some FLM hybrid bulkheads or Kmaxx customs diff case. There are possibly other 1/8 scale diffs that fit but I don't know which ones.

    1/8 scale conversion is expensive but it gives you peace of mind.

    i just brought HR aluminum diff cups and shimmed it right. i have no problems and i run 2 lectrons 5200mah 50c 3s lipo in mine. with a 24 pinion and 58 spur. set slipper right and punch control to 80%, i'm good... all that extra money and modifications was not need. $65.00 for both diffs.

    I have to know what body did you use. I want to put a truggy body on my emax as well, any chance you could get some close up pics of the wing mount
