Here we are at the school parking lot. 12-24-09. I have my Himoto RXT-1, and my two friends have their 3.3 Traxxas T-Maxx's. I was trying to tune my high speed needle. I was running back and forth in the same spot for about 5 minuets, when a T-Maxx darted out into my path. Check out the carnage! The crash occured with both vehicles traveling at wide open throttle. This T-Maxx got owned by my Himoto RXT-1. One up for the Himoto!! (lol) Two pictures are of the accident scene. We had to gather up some of the T-Maxx parts. Look at the RXT-1 compaired to the T-Maxx.

Nice, the tmaxx has no chance in a collision with and rxt, the rxt is a rock compared to the tmaxx..... I own 2 of the tmaxx's, a 3.3 and a 2.5 and they are always breaking something.

I agree Eddie, I've seen a Traxxas Nitro 4tec at wide open when it crashed, it was deadly, split the car in half. I've flipped my Rapida at 3/4s and it landed right on its wheels.

Yeah I was told by (someone) to watch and see how often my friends T-Maxx's break and they have to fix them. I came to understand that they fix them every time they run them. (lol) The sad thing was that the T-Maxx in the photos above, he just bought the front wheels and tires, both baulk heads and the upper and lower A-arms. I destroyed all of that, plus the drive axle looked like it shattered, the servo split in three pieces and the one shock look like it exploded. I was like DAMN!!! fired up my RXT and drove it around his T-Maxx. It hit so hard that my reciever started to act funny. I had to resync it to the transmitter.
