the frankenstein emaxx....

Post  drebies on Sun Jul 04, 2010 5:55 pm

emaxx..i borrowed parts from 3 or 4 other maxx trucks to make her..not much other then cosmetic stuff done so far..i have it set up real low...dirt racer,i like how it handles that low but i am bottoming out way to much i have to put stiffer springs on...tune in the suspension.





next few steps,gorilla maxx chassis,single gear transmission,single engine plate.
then stronger everything,diffs,universals,transmission gears....fun stuff...it is a fun truck now cant imagine with the new chassis..ect.

the picture does not do the paint job any justice....two different flip flop colors,and a candy red and purple....in the sun it goes from green to gold to purple...and every color in between.
i have to put decals on...hide the mess ups cause i rushed this paint job...and it will look sick.
its like a monster sc truck baja...thing...?

the body was on my lst xxl(wich i regret trading away)
so there are extra holes.....and way too many coats of paint,and not enough drying time in between.....its kinda embarrassing to me cause i am an artist for a living...i really need to learn these airbrushes i have...just need a hose and im all set.

It's *WAY* too clean : P
You need to take it out and get it dirty...
Wow, there's a ton of nice parts in that truck!

PS. I have the same body on one of mine and yours is in much better shape.
