    Just bought a Tmaxx 2.5 off of Ebay - Now what?

    I've been away from the RC world for about 10 years, so I'm sure some things have changed. I decided to get back in and fell in love with the new Tmaxx. I just bought a "stock" Tmaxx that's had under 3 tanks ran through after the break in. I figure I'll be spending some money on some hop ups....only question is, who / what / where do I look. Any info for a newbie Tmaxx owner would be greatly appreciated....

    The first things I bought were a-arms, brakes, skid plates, and a spur gear (and many things since). It depends on what you want, RPM makes "unbreakable" a-arms, Robinson Racing Parts makes gears and brakes, Unlimited Engineering makes top notch stuff, New Era Models has cool stuff, or try Tower Hobbies, Hobby People, or Stormer Hobbies. There are millions of aftermarket parts for the tmaxx, just run a search, or go to your LHS. You can browse this forum for info on the parts you want, many people put links in thier posts. When you start breaking stuff, you'll have no problem finding parts.
    Who farted??!!

    one word RPM If your panning on bashing your truck and takin to the MAXX lol you need to get rid of that plastic and upgrade into RPM a-rms. RPM is guarantteed not the brake and probaly the best a-arms out there for the money.

    as far as replacement parts stay with plastic.rpm is my choice.

    i wouldn't replace anything till you need it and spend your money were its needed right now like a fail safe.maybe a good steering servo suca as the hitec hs-645 and a rechargeable hump back receiver pack like this one.if you watch ebay you can probably get it cheaper.i also upgraded to the proline steering kit which really helped high speed stability.
