New BL conversion

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I've got big money into an (almost) all aluminum E-Maxx with brushless outrunner power. I finally got it all working well and I took it out bashing. Not 10 minutes until I broke the chassis. I already expected to upgrade my diffs and driveshafts and who knows what else.

The best thing about the E-maxx imo is the way it can drive over any terrain. Especially in the winter, anything with small tires or low clearance just won't do.

I think I've got the solution. I've started to convert my Aftershock to the same BL outrunner and E-Maxx trans. I'm going cheap on this just to try it out. If its all good then I'll cut a new chassis plate from aluminum. For now, the broken E-Maxx chassis is the perfect donor. I've adapted the trans mount/battery trays to the Aftershock.

Here are some build pics. I hope to finish it tonight.

The LST is much better than the maxx.. what you did with it works great....but if putting a lot of power to it.. the maxx tranny just won't cut it.. unless you have the supermaxx 7075 Gears in the tranny... that's what I have in mine..... ur AfterMaxx looks good....

I agree. A little ingenuity goes a long way. It's what makes this hobby fun. Nice work.

and Robinson maxx gears are pretty good too. they have aluminum or hardened steel.
