A few of my favorites...

Post  nitrohobbiest on Wed Jun 30, 2010 11:56 pm

I thought I would share some of my "keepers". They will rank in order of labor of love down to just a nice vehicle to own...
Here is the first truck I ever built from scratch. Its a T-Maxx with a Picco .21 Sport on a RC Limited chassis, spider towers, ACNCM bulks, Lundsford Ti hinge pins, RPM arms, rims, bumpers, wear plates, Hardcore titanium skids, and custom made (by me)center dogbones. I polished or repolished every part before assembly.

This one is my budget minded Super"S"Maxx build. Its got a Sportwerks .26 big block on top of an Unlimited Engineering Thunder chassis, RPM arms, Revo wing and mount, custom sized rear skid plate, hand built rear center dogbone, and the rest is mostly stock, old school T-Maxx black plastic parts. I chose a black and aluminum theme for this truck and it took a little searching to come up with the old style black parts. This truck was built for speed using a 24 tooth clutch bell and a 54 tooth spur on top of the weight savings of only 2 wheel drive. I torched the spur due to overheating the 2 shoe stock clutch. I have a 3 shoe Jammin clutch on tap for this summer to transfer the power. I have yet to see how fast this truck will go but it looks pretty!

I have other trucks, too but I realized I don't have any good photos of them. But to add to the list I have a couple Savages, LST2, Thunder Tiger ST-1, Losi Desert Truck (brushless now), BL E-Revo, a 3.3 Revo going under major overhaul, and an Associated MGT which I have pics of here...

Well, they aren't very useful unless I can post them here from Facebook which I tried. I need the digital proofs! :P

OK. I figured out how to steal facebook pictures so now, thanks to Ross's wife, here is an action shot of my .21 Savage wearing the MGT body and running an HPI 4.6 engine with polished HPI tuned pipe. What a wake up call running this motor compared to my all stock .21 Savage!
