What am i gon na do all that stuff and well let’s start with the review part uh. First of all, this is the traxxas max um. I own this thing for about two years now, two three ish um literally, have had almost no problems with it. This thing is very very fast about it feels like about 55 at least wheelies for days. I can carry a wheelie down the street like no problem at all: um it’s insane it’s like big brother, but in a smaller package, basically – and i own big brother, so, which is the traxxas x max um let’s, take off the body shell here, real quick kind Of show you underneath in case any of you, are kind of seeing an atraxis max for the very first time so camera all right. So esc is a 4sa esc, lineon, the very long can that is capable of 4s. I forget what the uh kv rating is for it and everything it does have two fans. My fans have been okay, but i have heard people have been having trouble with them, but mine have been fine literally they they’ve been great. I, like i said, i’ve almost had no problems with this thing, um big, huge steering, servo. I was very surprised the day that these things came out. They came out with a very big steering servo, but it gets the job done. It’S a wee bit slow, but i’m, not racing.
This is a basher. I i don’t need to worry about how fast my wheels can turn um traxxas uh, normal remote um. I still have the tq in it with multifunction and all that stuff. So it’s been a very good remote as well um suspension, since we got down with the power train and steering a lot of people say this thing loves to roll over and that’s going to be one upgrade down the line. I think i’m gon na do like a suspension, video and whatnot uh upgrading the suspension, because i do have the blue uh shock blue shocks coming in which are different rating shocks. Kind of help with the whole steering thing i’m not going to do the wide max kit. I think it looks kind of goofy so um, but yeah it likes to roll over and the one big thing main reason. Why is because of traxxas is famous high center gravity chassis that they love so much, but at the same time, it’s kind of like it’s a monster truck it’s gon na roll over come on. I mean i i made stumpy and he still rolled over and i made him to the lowest amount of uh suspension that i could get to him, but anyway, i think this. Oh, i do got one little concern about this thing. Uh, if you guys own a traxxas max, and you have this kind of problem, so one of these wheels – i think, it’s this wheel.
I think it has a bit of wheel wobble whenever i’m driving like it goes like that, and i don’t know why it does that. I mean it’s, not my only traxxas that i’ve had it, but i would kind of like a little kind of little bit of an answer, kind of just a little concerned and all that. But i also kind of noticed that the suspension components kind of wiggle a little bit, so i think that’s. The main reason why um but yeah, i think uh, probably for the next thing, is to get the upgrades on and the upgrades that we’re gon na be putting on it. Well, one upgrade is the traxxas like kit, i’m gon na be putting on there i’m gon na go ahead and put it on there and kind of tell you tips and all that to do um concerns i may have a little tidbits and all that so that’s. One thing and also a new body shell, which i’m gon na leave for the end so i’m gon na go ahead and get started, see you then all right now, we’re back uh got the light kit all installed and it was pretty much a very easy installation. Um pretty much it comes with some zip ties that you can put down there’s one right there. Very, very tiny, zip ties gives you a nice good diagram where everything should go. I kind of made a few slightly modifications, because i was a little confused, sometimes on the diagram where everything went, but overall it’s pretty easy installation.
One little tip that i do recommend is when you’re installing it put the selector kind of module. If you want to call it that the amplifier and whatnot uh right at the center, just at first kind of give these net itself a nice good layout and don’t screw it in immediately uh just kind of leave it loose and uh pretty much just go through Everything look at the diagram i mean the diagram is actually pretty easy to follow, get that over here, it’s, pretty easy instructions overall and a pretty simple uh installation, i must say, gives you pretty much how to do everything which you know what i will give you A good kind of tutorial on how everything works, so first things first we’re going to power it up. I already have my controller on. If any of you are wondering and all right, we’ll go ahead and plug her right on in there we go let’s start it right up. As you can see, the light kit is already on and if you want to go to high beams, there’s high beams, there’s off or off, and then click it once again and put it back up to normal beam. And if you are wondering yes, it does have reverse light. So if i hit reverse, you can go forward. It’Ll turn it off like. I saw so yeah pretty much a very good installation overall and then it’s pretty much very easy, like i keep saying very easy to install, probably oh yeah, that’s uh, usually pretty anything traxxas right now has been pretty easy to install and well uh.
There is one last thing before i let you all go and whatnot i’m pretty sure, because i did say i did get a new body shelf for this thing and, as you can see, the old one uh it’s uh it’s uh it’s it’s, pretty done it’s it’s. Pretty wore out so i gave it new outside parts and whatnot. I will get it on here very shortly and boom there’s, the new body shell, for it i pretty much went from, went a uh kind of a fade color, so it uh goes from white to light blue and then i i don’t know why i kind of Wanted to do the dodge, shaker hood kind of ordeal, so i kind of painted the little kind of upper hood piece right there black. I got a brand new um guard for it and new back guard for it. It was kind of one of the reasons why i wanted to buy the light kit too, and so that way i could pretty much get brand new outside parts that usually get wear and tear on them. Even though i know this thing is going to get beat up, but still make it look nice while it still is and uh um, i did put shoe goo and drywall tape on it to durability, make it more durable, let’s, get it off here, nice and it’s. All shoe goo and drywall taped up kind of left the windows alone, because it was showing the drywall tape in the back.
So i didn’t really want that there’s a few little imperfections like the drywall tape, kind of sticking out there, but yeah i’m, not too too worried about it. Uh. If you are going to do the shugu and drywall tip method, i do recommend uh. You keep the kind of cover on the kind of cover that all body shells come with um before you put on the shugu just in case, if you did what i did here and that is, i accidentally put my finger right here. While i was putting on the shugu and i kind of wiped there and i’m – not pretty proud of that moment, but hey you live and learn um anything else. The cage was pretty easy to put back on um. I kind of recommend take a picture before you get really in depth into it. So that way, you kind of remember where everything is so yeah. That is pretty much my kind of little revamp traxxas max um so, like i said at the beginning, a little bit of review it’s very good, very durable, had pretty much no issues with it. So, besides the tumbling but it’s a monster truck coming come on next. Video of this thing i think i’m going to do suspension. Do some suspension stuff with it. Maybe i’ll show you guys how to do a shock or two. So anyway, if you like, what you saw don’t be afraid just hit the like and subscribe.
