PostSubject: T-Maxx Hybrid   Wed Oct 22, 2008 10:10 am


This is a build I did last winter but felt it was worth posting.



Well been looking at this heap of parts I've collected and figured its time to start a maxx powered project.
I had a vintage Kyosho Ultima chassis plate and a T-Maxx chassis plate.

Hard to see but T-Maxx chassis plate has been marked to be cut.



After the cut, and polished its mounted to the Ultima chassis plate.


Mock up of rear suspension.

In doing the mock up of rear i realized the front set of holes where the maxx chassis plate would mount to the bulks would have to go but np.

Rear suspension, aluminum skid. mounted and steering rack in place.


Figuring as short as this thing is its gonna do wheelies like crazy so I figure the need of a wheely bar.


Thats where I'm at as of now I'll post more pics as I go.
My Robinson FOC tranny came in yesterday.
I set it in place looks like things will work out fine.
Just waiting on the rest of the parts before I can really do much.
Pic of chassis with tranny in place:


Ton of parts will be coming in the mail and fedex hoping to be doing an update at weeks end.

Parts coming:
1 center shaft
XXX-NT front suspension
Front rims/tires
.15 a-arms (the 2.5 arms make it too wide for its legnth)
and a few othe Miss. parts

Got my work cut out for me but I'm up for it, hoping to build something I can say I built and can be proud of when its done.









Made a few more parts today that will pretty much finish up the chassis then i need a body and fuel for the virgin run

Well made a few changes today.
ok my home made throttle servo holder, 6 duratrax shocks, muffler, and the black springs on rear red maxx springs on front.




Love the way that revo pipe makes it look and a full set of matching shocks aint to shabby either.

Ok looked around my hobby room and found a body I like the looks of better.
Gives more the Hot Rod look i was going for lol





Gonna paint this up soon and it wont be red pretty happy with the way the servo holder came out too
