Default My Magic Wheel is done for ever...

:cry: about 2 weeks ago i crashed my truck. and the whole front was separate from the chassis. i broke 2 bulkheads, skidplate, bend the a-arm screws, broke a shock pistion/shaft and broke the steering system ( i forget what its called) so i just got the money to get the parts from my lhs. AND FOR ALL THE PEOPLE THAT SAID THAT THE MAGIC WHEEL TAKES ALL T-MAXX PARTS EXCEPT THE ENGINE STUFF WAS W-R-O-N-G. almost nothing fits except the shock parts. the problem is tha hat the bulkheads are spacig evrything aprt from where thing are suppsed to be. my skidplate barley fits on and its held on with 3 screws that are about to pop out it seems. ANYbody else have this problem with the magic wheel? i just lost 70 bucks for non-returnable items(beciuase they have been used)!

how hard did you run it? maybe it's hard enough to break all MTs.


now you have a chance to convert it to a supermaxx ^^

If you reach a point where you get frustrated, I'll take it off your hands. I'm always looking for a project.

Default Who knows??

Maybe he got 2.5 T-Maxx parts for it and they did not work?? I just got the 2.5 A-Arms for my older Maxx's and they don't fit the older bulkheads but, the new and old bulkheads are they same?? Sounds funny right?/ Well it is! The newer A-arms use shims and spacers to fit on the bulkheads so, I did not need to buy new bluks for this only needed the spacers and shims! Plus if there is only 3 screw hole for the skids just drill another one!

And one more thing! If you need parts you can buy them here!

Default From the looks of it on the website,

It looks like it would be the .15 Maxx parts that would do the trick! I saw one on Ebay and it was advertised as a 70% clone so, I sent the guy that was selling it a message and ask him what the 30% was and he said that he did not know! I guess you could ask the manufacturer what parts would fit but they would just say none so you would have to buy parts from them!
