    Anyone have a T-Maxx or E-Maxx? I've really been wanting one for over a year now. My friend has an E-Maxx and it's sweet. Kinda hard to fork over the money when I could spend it on my 72.

    So anyone here have one? If so do you like it? Is it worth the money?

    That T-maxx is bad ass, but I have the same problem with spending the money on something I wont use that much!

    I have a Traxxas Stampede. I got it as a gift when I graduated HS, so it's over 7 years old! But it's really cool. I upgraded the reciever... so after that it was probably $600 because of the charger, battery, truck and some cool mods I did to it like a better engine. I never dumped another dime into mods though aside from batteries. I should though. Might be fun to see what I could find on eBay since it is older and stuff probably is cheap enough now! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Mine is blue though with green stripes, sounds ugly, and it is!

    Has the engine given you a lot of problems? I've been told that they are hard to keep running.

    Anyone know of a good place to order from? I know Tower Hobbies but they said that it is on order and I'll have to wait to call them tomorrow to find out when they will be shipping. Anyone know of any place cheaper?

    I have a T-Maxx with a .16 and the stock body plus the pro-line Jeep CJ-8 body. I really enjoy having something that I can beat up and not worry about having it down for daily driving. I would rather dump the cash into my scout, but it is still a fun little toy.

    Yeah it did. It would overheat quickly and smoke badly so I got another one. But it was over 6 years ago so I honestly couldn't tell you much about it at this point... but I did get it for free because I complained so much the guy at the r/c place got sick of me and traded it. Sure it's not some expensive one, but it works fine and never gave me an issue after that...
