SuperMaxx!!! They are the strongest kits out there not to mention they handle and jump a 100 times better then any stock T-maxx! They do cost alott but, I say they are worth every cent! I love mine! Depnding on which kit your go with they rage. A 100% Supermaxx would run about $2000-$2500 but, you can find they on Ebay and here sometimes for alott less. I got mine on Ebay for $1000 and it was all new.

if that thing wrecks and cracks or bends something, its gonna be a good amount of money for new parts. i would say to take a look at the 3 new trucks that are coming out. they cost about 400-600 depending on which one it is. there is the Losi LST (Losi Super Truck), Traxxas Revo, and the CEN Genusis.

A Supermaxx can take just about any punishment you can throw at it! UE backs there products!

Unlimited Engineering Insurance Policy (UEIP)

All UE products come with an insurance policy. While UE's items are designed to be as tough as possible, everything has a breaking point. All moving parts eventually wear out.
If you ever break or wear out an Unlimited Engineering product, you can trade your damaged item for a brand new replacement for 60% of the item's current list price. So if the list price on an item is $10, you only pay $6

Not to bad! Oh, there is noting stock out there now or coming out soon that can take what a Supermaxx can!

The 1:6 scale FG Monster is about ready to be released at $1K. The RTR option is another $250 and there is also a 4WD option about ready to be released. You can add hop-ups and have the engine redone to around 5hp. If that is not enough, a miniature V-8 can be made. Use the "search" button and search the forums for more details. By the way, if you don't care about the price, why state the price unless you really do care?

It only weights 10oz more then a stock Maxx. It has a O.S. .15 with a Hardcore mutant head in it in that pic but, that went in my son's Stampede and the Supermaxx is getting a XTM 24/7 Pro when they are in stock again. I will say it again no stock MT out there comes even close to the toughness of a Supermaxx!

I made a mistake it is only 2oz's more then stock. I do have a bigger battery pack then normal on it now so maybe a bit more! Check out UE's web site to see how these things are made. Believe me you will be impressed!

Another nice thing--they run on a gasoline/oil mix instead of nitro!

i think it could be that much in stuff. just think, all that stuff has a big cost. the rims have to be high dollar. the only drawnback is the .21 engine.

2500 for an RC truck? Maybe that's strecthing it just a bit too much, I think I'd rather have a used Chevy Blazer for the same money, and mess around with *that*. But sure, if you've got the money....
