Default Whats the fastest top speeds for your E-Maxxs?

What top speeds are your E-Maxxs putting out? What parts have you used to get it to that speed? I have 3 trucks on my agenda and the E-Maxx is one of them. I read a thread somewhere on RCU that said that E-Maxxes are alo excellent climber so I decided to look on to important aspects and I think that the Monster trucks top speed is very important to me along with durability. So let me know how fast your E-Maxx is and what parts you chose to you and what batterys have the longest life. Thanks alot.

my buddies truck, which has a brushless system on it, probably sees speeds around 35mph, 40 if its lucky. You only need one motor for it, its that powerful. I highly recommend that you DONT use novak... after so many Novak failures I have had and he has had with his Emaxx, the LRP brushless should be perfect.

i just recently sold my e-maxx, but it was a real nice truck. lotta torque, wheelies like crazy. Top speed was plenty fast with 7 cell batteries with stock motors. With a brushless system it would be REAL fast.

Dont have it anymore but i had a emaxx a use to race with 17 turn monster maxx motors twin team matched sanyo 3300 packs and some light weight parts on it and i could match top speed in parking lots with stock T maxx's so i'd say it was around mid 30's mph.

I've one preordered (motor and sphere controller) and they say late December early January.As an aside I don't believe that LRP motor will be suitable for a MT.....It's geared more towards 1/10 scale buggys,cars and trucks

on top of that, its a sensored brushless system. it wont put out the same power as an unsensored system. its like the Novak BL's out there: they have torque/rpm ratings that are comparable (but just a little bit better) to many brushed systems, but priced at a much higher price... in my opinion, that defeats the purpose of buying bushless, other than the fact that its virtually maintenance free...

It seems to me that every Novak, no matter what quality it was (that I have had), either shorts out or fries. Novaks I bought and gone thru: BL system, rooster, super rooster, dually, and the atom. Duratrax esc's i burned up... NONE . If someone else comes up with an esc for the emaxx, shoot for it.

I have never had any trouble with the Novak EVX that was stock in the e-maxx. I have had problems with other novak products though.

I had my emaxx EVX for 2 years with mod motors and hi po cells and never had a single problem with it.
