that looks sweet..is that your first nitro truck??? i have 3 traxxas trucks..2 t-maxx 2.5's and a new revo 2.5r..they have been great!! much better than my savage 25..just take your time when breaking in..the needles on the 2.5 trx are very sensitive..make very small adjustments 1/12 at a time when you are fine tuning it..the 2.5r does'nt really get broke in until you run about a gallon of fuel thru it..so dont over lean right after you run 5 tanks thru it..the motor will still be very tight..it will naturally lean itself out after you run about 10 tanks or so..make sure you have a nice big cooling hole in the windshield in front of the engine...the revo drive train is a nice upgrade in the t-maxx..hope you have fun with it..

Truck wise, it will be my first, I'm on my second 1/8 scale buggy along with a bunch of nitro planes. Thanks for the advise on the engines break-in, the book mentions the first 5 tanks and then tune for power thereafter.

Still hasn't seen any fuel, I have very little time at the moment [&o], it's up for sale in the buy/sell section.

I know i put a lot of mine up for sale, but am just not getting, remotely close to what i want, most are brand new. I'll admit it I went head over hills in this hobby and 20 rc vehicles later well?????? Lets just say i got a tad carried away.

I was never a good 2.5 tuner, but i know it is me, because i see other guys who these babies purring.

I bought my Maxx 2.5R a freaking week before they released the new design. I was mad as **** at my LHS for not telling me they were coming out with the new model! never the less I love my Maxx. I have 10 tanks through the engine and it wheelies like a mad dog in heat. It runs like a champ and is almost as fast as my 3 speed Savage. My Maxx has the wide arms on it which makes it a little more like yours when compared to the older versions. It still doesn't handle like the Revo but can hold its own when handled correctly. The only tuning trouble I've had with it is when the weather gets really warm, above 80*, it gets really touchy on the needles and will change its tune nearly every tank.
