Nice pick up, I got lucky on a red dot .26 myself.

I have a 4909 Maxx. Its basically the same as yours, just longer arms, has the 3.3 and different tranny. I have broken quite a few center shafts and thats with the 3.3, so yeah, those'll prolly go, as well as alot of other stuff. I'm considering getting one for my maxx, but..... i just dunno. I'm pretty sure it would tear the crap outta my drivetrain quite quickly. On the other hand though, it sure does sound fun .

I have an oldmTM with a Picco .26 Blue Head. You will definitely want to upgrade all your driveshafts. Before you go dumping a bunch of $$ into your Maxx, take the time to break that Picco in properly. I run 30% Byron's in my Picco, but the head is shimmed for it. I recommend 20% Byron's Race.
