Welcome back to the channel y’all i’m gon na do this from behind the camera chris b and wrc madness check it out. We got the traxxas max and today guys i just want to give you guys a big, huge thumbs up review on this truck. Is this awkward, i hope it’s not awkward, but anyways i’m working on my my skills. So here we go. This is the awesome traxxas max 4s that i have been running on 6s it’s. An awesome truck got lots of dirt on the lens all right. So here we go Music all right, so first things. First guys i’ve had this truck for almost a year, uh. The first thing that i always do are we there first thing i always do before i work on a truck. Is i clean it off and that’s what you guys just seen takes about five minutes: simple green air, nozzle, a rag and then after that i will always. I will always lube up the joints on the axles and basically that’s all, and i just spray it off. Really well with air hose for a good, 10, 15 minutes and it’s just pretty pretty dry. So this truck’s a year old, so um, first thoughts, let’s let’s, go on and i’ll tell you exactly how i feel about the truck okay. So first things. First, i got the truck super close to the camera and spinning around um. Obviously, the first thing you see on the truck is the body okay, so this body is actually original to the truck.
I bought the truck brand new, so this is the body it’s. Actually, it gets damaged right here from the front shock tower. Basically, both sides get damaged so um i’m, not sure how many hours i really have on the truck, but i’ve definitely driven the truck i’ll show you some clips clips of how i’ve been hard on this truck and honestly, the truck hasn’t really had that much damage. So original roof rack original tailgate skid plate and then obviously you have all this damage that comes through the rear, from the rear shock tower, so let’s put the body down and then let’s go over the truck all right. So first things first about the truck um. I don’t know i would definitely recommend the traxxas max. This truck is upgraded uh, not too much so let’s, just all right. So maybe it has a few upgrades. I do have the traxxas wide max kit. Okay, i do have the traxxas steering links and aluminum. Also. I i did a upgraded servo, which is a high tech, and i had to do a little bit of modification uh to the chassis, brace and then i’m, using a techno, servo saver, um so other than that, the truck okay and then yes, i got upgraded electronics, But i am running a stock motor and that broke so currently no fan um and i’m running this battery tray from extreme racing so that i can actually fit my 6s under under the strap because stock truck just so you know you cannot fit your big 6s Battery under the stock configuration at least not the one that i had so i went ahead and got this now.
You don’t have to buy this one uh. You do have to drill holes in the bottom of the chassis to do to put that one in no big deal, um anyways, so moving on um. I have been running this truck on 6s. Basically, since i got it and i’m gon na tell you that uh, i haven’t really broken anything on the truck, yet until yesterday, at the skate park and that’s right here, guys so check it out. It’S kind of hard to see it’s got not very light in here, it’s actually really light in here, let’s zoom in basically, if you’re gon na upgrade the truck, the only upgrade i would do to the truck would be the c hub now, i’m, not sure if You can get this on the camera or not. If i can get it, but maybe you can see it, i can always see it when i’m editing there’s a crack right there. Okay, so the c hub always cracks right there and then it actually, it pulls the pin out the screw it’s like a screw pin. So if you’re gon na upgrade anything on the truck, i would definitely suggest upgrading the c hubs and that’s about it. I mean the truck: is stock stock is excellent um. I just added this 6s hobby wing system, and that is the uh, oh that’s, the max eight. I just added that because i wanted to run 6s, so you don’t have to do that and then i also added the servo, because i had one laying around and i wanted to make a video about that and i upgraded the steering links just because i wanted To so, none of it is necessary.
Actually i did upgrade these. I made a video on those and the right side broke, so i think i’m done with t bone racing everything breaks from them. So, overall i give the traxxas max like a 10, a big huge 10 on the scale of 1 to 10. um, so yeah guys don’t be afraid to run your stock axles. You don’t have to buy metal axles, that’s a huge upgrade. It costs a lot of money. I haven’t even broken one of these axles yet and, like i said, 6s been on 6s um, so yeah best basher ever i believe so that’s my review. I give it two thumbs up um two thumbs up um, but real, quick uh. One thing i would like to tell you guys is that the front bumper is actually the bumpers are actually just kind of weak, especially if it’s cold guys and then one thing to really always look out for when you’re driving these trucks. Okay, is the bulkheads um. I’M gon na take this one apart. Just because i did, i did drown it in the lake. I drowned it in the lake and then i just washed it. You know i do uh put lubricant on there and stuff, but i don’t want everything to get. You know seized up, even though i do blow out the pins um so yeah. Overall, the truck is amazing, i’m running, i believe, 60 weight and then a 50 weight in the shocks.
Nothing else. I really, i really can’t, think of anything bad to say about the truck at all, so guys, if you like this video, please do hit the like button.
