    RE: tmaxx question

    Thats not a t-maxx, but an s-maxx or sportmaxx. they were only 2wd, single speed and no reverse. Looks like the 4wd upgrade has been done though because i can see fron axles.

    ORIGINAL: chevymanmike1010

    Im not positive if it is newer or not, but it does have the newer grey battery box and reciever box and shocks. And no im pretty sure it is only an S-maxx/sportmaxx since it does not even have a reverse servo next to the steering servo, and those are s-maxx/sportmaxx tires

    RE: tmaxx question

    I could be a model #5109 3.3 S-Maxx that someone put a 2.5 engine and front diff and driveshaft’s on or a 2.5 model 4910 that someone put S-Maxx tires on and an FOC.

    RE: tmaxx question

    I think it is a smaxx but its not the original smaxx that had the 1 speed. i did some reading last night an they made a 1 speed smaxx with a 2.5, then a newer 2 speed smaxx 2.5, and now they have a 2 speed smaxx 3.3. so its more than likely a 2 speed smaxx with the 4wd conversion. correct me if im wrong but isnt it just basicly a 2 speed forward only tmaxx? all parts interchangable? its rtr with everything for $200, think its worth it? he said reverse works great so i wonder if these were older pics and he put a reverse tranny in it. think its worth $200 bucks? has less than 1/2 gallon on truck. thanks.

    RE: tmaxx question

    I would ask him to send you pics of it that were taken TODAY. If the new pics have a reverse servo installed then it might be legit, if not then he is lying and you should run away from this deal! Even at 200 bucks its really not much of a deal anyway

    RE: tmaxx question

    i talk to him. he is a seller on this site, 56 years old and been buildin for 24 years. 80+ feedbacks, all good and alot of tmaxx's sold so i think he knows what hes talkin bout. its just the wheels, tires and body off a smaxx is what he said when i talked to him. $200 for a tmaxx with less than 1/2 gallon, ill take a chance on it not havin reverse,  but peoples feedback dont lie so ill see how it goes an let yall know. thanks guys for all your help.

    RE: tmaxx question

    The first set of pics : that truck is new the then the truck in the second set of pics. the first t-maxx trucks had a plastic chassis plate and the second gen t maxx trucks had aluminum.

    RE: tmaxx question

    I'm pretty sure a TMaxx never had a plastic chassis plate. If you can find one, I will buy it from you...

    RE: tmaxx question

    Agreed Snook! lol...

    And also there is a difference between the "S-Maxx" and the "Sport Maxx".
    S-Maxx actually stood for Stadium Maxx and had 2 speeds, no reverse and 2WD. It came out at the release of the 2.5 Maxx (before the 2.5R phase)
    The Sport Maxx came out after the original .15 and was also 2WD but only had 1 forward gear and no reverse. It had a Truck style body similar to the orig .15 Maxx.
    Please, thrill me with your acumen.
