Default JUST GOT MY E-MAXX!!!

Well, I got my E-maxx 3905 this morning, also bought the 08 f250 body for it, it will be painted next weekend and mounted along with my BL system, i got the white one, and i must say this is the BEST looking stock body ive ever seen, white just looks really good, i first ran it on 12 cells, crappy venom 6 cell 3300s but it accelerates FAST, makes an awesome roaring noise, not the fastest stock but will be plenty fast next weekend on 4s lipo and the BL system, it is much bigger in person than in pictures thats for sure, and is definitely the best truck ive ever bought, here are some pics below, sorry my kitten attacked the camera, just thought they were cute pictures lol

I thought the waterproof would be useful to you? You will be driving on a golf course and it does rain a lot in Florida. I would use the waterproof feature as much you can while it's stock.

no because it doesnt really make huge puddles in my street after it rains, and its just not fun for me, just because i live in south florida doesnt mean i NEED the waterproof, i like speed alot more.

well i didnt order it, just got up and 9am yesterday and went down to LHS to pick it up, but yeah i know what you mean, FINALLY i own an E-maxx right? lol, yep BL and lipo 4s is only 5 days away thank god


Always dreamin: my pede is broken right now, but i bought some steel gears for the gearbox also yesterday, and i will get around to fixing it soon, and as for a E-maxx vs. Pede video, unless you want an extremely choppy 30 second video for each truck from my camera phone, maybe wait till i get a camera for my Bday or something?

What brushless system are you useing? I love my new e-maxx. Its great for the sand dunes. I am running a nemisis 9xl on 4s2p lipos.

If you plain on doing any type of jumping I would highly recommend putting a few(3 works good) zip ties on the lower end of the shock towers.. Trust me its a must!!!!!! Also I quit breaking the skids and bulk heads when I put on the rpm front bumper and front skid(it will save you money in the long run). Have fun[8D]

The 8xl is a great motor(have it in my E-LST2) on 5s lipo (55mph). I use the rc monsters heat sink/clamp on my feigao/nemisis motors and it works great(if you got the smooth can). You will need to cut a hole in the windsheild to allow air to flow over the motor or it WILL overheat. I was hitting 180 degrees[:-] before the heat sink/clamp and hole. Now it tops out at 150

Why not have both? Enjoy the waterproof while you have it. I know you would rather have B-less over waterproof, who wouldn't... But you should enjoy it stock.

When I see those pictures you have, I think, MAN that's a sweet truck. You should just run it stock for a while, through puddles, and have fun.

Congrats, I expect a full NOT BIASED review on the Stampede and E-maxx.

That's not what I'm saying man...

I'm saying, why not enjoy the waterproof feature while you can? I mean, it's a nice feature. The stock E-maxx isn't that fast, why not drive through a few puddles. I know that going fast is fun. There will be plenty of time to go fast with brushless. All I'm saying is that you're thinking too much about this brushless thing. Just enjoy the truck for now.

I know it will be more fun with lipo and brushless. That's why I am not sure about getting one. I wont be able to afford brushless or lipo for a long time. That's why I want to know about stock form, not brushless and lipo.
