Default I have seen this done before,

I believe it was in a Mag but, it may have been on a website?? It looked cool (Kind of like a train)! It was 1 1/2 T-Maxx's put together somehow?

put the 3rd hub right behind the back wheels and make it a monster semi . I think that would look cooler then having them evenly spaced like a nasa vehicle or something.you can probably find a 1/5th scale body to fit on it.

The only thing I think, about bringing the rear 2 axles so close, like a semi as suggested, is the stability issue. I think it would be much easier to rollover going fast through a corner. With all 3 axles spaced evenly apart, you have much more suspension travel through the axles.....otherwise it's like having a jeep on the rear, with steering way in the front....I don't know if that would work well......BUT, it would look AWESOME!!!

Default RE: <span class=

@ all

I am new here and was looking for some more 6x6 or 6x6x6 MAXX freaks.

I have just build me my own 6x6, but havent tested it yet.
I have also made all 3 Axles powered and got me a 1/8 Scale Semi Truck Tractor for a Body.
The Body fits perfect with the Wheels, but i havent had it mounted yet.
I also havent mounted my 2 Rear-Axle Add-on to 1 of my 4 MAXX yet.
BUt i wanted for you all to see some of my Pictures.
I have put 6 in the Gallery (wish i could have posted more)[&o]
and i will see if i can post 1 within here too (if i figure it out).

Here are a lil Deatils:
I am in Germany where the E-MAXX and T-MAXX gotton very popular within the last 2 to 3 Years, but unfortunately it is hard to get tuning-parts for them over here at a reasonable Price, as the Parts run about 3x the Price then in the USA.
Sometimes i get a Deal somewhere to where i can add a lil something at the time.

For this i have used:
8x RPM White Suspension Arms
4x Rear Bulkheads Stock Traxxas
4x Stock E-MAXX (widemaxx) Axles
1x Stock E-MAXX Differntial
2x Stockdifferentil to make 1 Differential with 1 input and 1 output yoke to the 3rd. Differential
2x Stock E-MAXX Axle to make the Driveline from 2nd to 3rd Differential
8x Stock E-MAXX Shocks
2x Traxxas Shocktowers (widemaxx)
4x Stock E-MAXX rims and Tires
and some more

P.S: if any1 wants some more Pics of the Diff and all , mail me

@ RC/DRAGON

Sure you can buy a KIT, but whats the FUN at that ?

Its a lot more fun if you can use your own KNowledge and see what you can do yourself.

The Diffcase that you have linked to costs about $ 100 Bucks, the 1 made me cost me 12 Dollars
for 2 Stock Diff's and 7 Dollars for the Epoxy-Glue[X(]


My Complete Setup with BOTH Rear-Axles cost me about 1/3rd of the Kit ........

Default RE: 6x6 T-MAXX

I am really impressed on the Airtime that the GALLIMOD has.

Considering allt he extra weight on the back , it even flyes in a straighter manner than i thought.

Cant wait to have mine all hooked up , but unfortunate i wanna use it on my E-MAXX and dont wanna fry the EVX in the Snow we have gotton the last few days , so i might just go ahead and put iot on my 2.5 TRX T-MAXX and see how it does.....

Have to redo the rear on the T-MAXX anyways , that gives me a reason to take the Rear AXLE off and install the 2 AXLE-MOD i posted earlier.
