Is that a custom truck based off a traxxas stampede chassis?

Also I bet you need that wheelie bar lol

Yeah it started life as a Stampede, now the ONLY stock pieces left are the front axles, and the tranny diff gear!

Why dont you post up the mods that make it worth $850, cuz all i see is a normal RC car

NewAgeKing
01-04-2009, 12:42 PM
If those are supermaxx parts then im sure the 850 would seem a little more reasonable but still too much. You can buy two new trucks for the cost of that.

I'm still considering your offer but can I get some pics with your screen name and date next to the truck please.

rc10mike
01-04-2009, 03:14 PM
Yes, the pics are old, but the truck still looks the same other than a plastic front bumper, and different rear shock springs.

I will be making a full detailed list soon of everything installed.

If you know about R/c aftermarket parts, then thats not that bad for a quality part. Just like ca, you have cheap and you have quality.

That wheely bar is the best one you could have for that truck.

I really dont think its that. That ppl dont know anything about RC. Not sure if you been under a rock lately. But times are tuff. An 800 bucks for an RC car. Theres your reason why it has not sold yet. Let the add stay on for awhile sure some one down the road will have the money for it..

Bump for RC car ALot of nice parts good luck with your sale. I love RC's Got a traxxs Nirto truck AWD 2.5 I think it is. Have to look at it again.

Well good for you. But dont start jumping on others when you dont know how their lives are. I know of many auto mechanics that have lost their jobs because of no one coming into the shops. I know of a few shops that have closed up because of whats going on. Even my shop is having problems we have costumers coming in and saying this will be the last time I will be here I have lost my job. Im sure in some way it has effected you as well. Mabye not as big as others.

Just wondering how you used 1/8th parts on a pede?

are you talking just the CVD dogbones?

Fastlane Machine makes good parts, I had a set of wide arms on my pede, exepect my pede had a Lehner 4200 with a schultze 80 amp.

I also had a rustler with a vileneon.


The vileneon was a torque monster the lehner had a BEAST mid/high range
sensored vs. sensorless I guess.

I used Ofna drive cups (which are 5mm internal diameter and fit in the Traxxas stub axles and diff output shafts). Then Savage 77mm dogbones to connect them.

You would be surprised.. This is a huge hobby, and there are people that spend TONS on this.

Honestly, I think your a bit closed minded for thinking that way.

Any hobbyist who is die-hard for one certain hobby usually tends to think of others as a joke or a waste of money.

Personally, I did Radio Control for a while, spent about $1500 in there. Before that was computers and robotics, now I'm onto car audio and custom flashlight mods.

I'm currently working on a 3D Maglite, modding it with a P7 heatsink and P7 LED drop in for about a thousand lumens of light output for about 4 hours off of 3 D-sized NiMH rechargables.

To the OP, head over to RCUniverse.com and signup over there. It's dedicated to RC, and they have a classifieds system. Free to list if I recall correctly.

I threw a Mamba Max 5700 off of a MaxAmps LiPo in my Tamiya LunchBox for a bit, and WOW was that crazy. Hahaha! Rear Axle on the LB couldn't hang with it though. Not to mention charging those Li-Po's can be dangerous business at times :sneaky:

Bump for a fellow RCer!

Thanks for the suggestions guys. Ill try over at the rc forums. I tried it here thinking someone would suggest a good trade for some CA stuff, but oh well.

And for those who think this is a lot of $ for an R/c car, try asking a die-hard 1/8th scale on-road racer what they have spent on their rigs, also a full Unlimited Engineering SuperMaxx could run upwards of 4k, but you people hating probably dont even know anything about rc. So go die.

Dude I really dont think its ppl hating at all. More less in these hard times. Spending over 200 bucks and a RC car is not really up there in what you should be spending your money on now days. With what over 100,000 ppl loseing their jobs. At my shop I have ppl I can tell that they have metal cords showing threw their tires and they say they cant do anything because they dont have the money to pay for new tires.

have you ever driven a competition R/C car? thats like the sony Xplod of the R/C world....

anyways, nice truck. i have a old RC10 circa 1990 with a aluminum chassis. i need a speed controler top get it back on the track but the ****er wont break like newer cars. my dads bud that owns a track is taking Nitro trucks and puting the electric helicopter motors on them and they are fast as hell.
