Question new addition to Rc garage!!!!

i just picked up a t maxx from my friend paid 100 bucks for it due to
him gettin a divorced and moving away from home. his lost my gain, its a preety fast truck. the only thing ived done to it since i got it was the blue fuel lines and a body which i painted, it was my first time painting an rc body so its not perfect but its still came out fairly good.

After I save up some cash, I'll be getting a T-Maxx 3.3. It will be my first nitro ever! I can't wait to get it. Is that a 2.5 or a 3.3?

i envy you so much i always wanted a nitro but never had money but lucky you getting such a great deal on a t-maxx.plus everything still looks new (probably is ) unless you cleaned it very well.

It sure is clean! For parts, Clint will treat you right, he has more cars and parts than most hobby shops! I was going to do the traxxas warranty at one time but it's quite expensive and for that money you could buy a different, better motor.

That's a sweet deal you got there. Hopefully by the summer I should have and O.S. 18CV-R(S) for my Nitro Stampede. I like the Traxxas engines but they seem to lack some power. The warranty just isn't worth it imo and I like the way the O.S. Engines handle in other trucks I've driven. Very quick and good top end. Just be careful of the bulkheads they are fairly weak on the Maxx. Oh and make sure you painted the inside of the body with lexan paint not the outside.

I agree with the trading in on the warranty.Just buy a piston and sleeve if it gets worn out.As far as lack of power i don't see it unless he is talking about the stock .15 that came on the stampede they are traxxas first motor they do lack power,but the 2.5 on your truck is good for bashing and if you want to go faster get a 3.3 traxxas motor
