Traxxas Emaxx Brushless Edition Review!
All sections out of 10 points:
Having the same powerplant as the ERBE, yet being a bit cheaper is a selling point of this car. You get a awesome looking ride, 2 batteries, a 2.4ghz link radio for its price...not to shabby...It isnt by any means cheap..but it isnt bad
As big and bad as it looks, one of the major flaws of this car is its durability. Traxxas just took a stock brushed maxx, added 17mm hubs, strengthened the tranny, and then threw in a MMM 2200kv monster...and the car just cant handle it...the weak spots i found immediately where the bulks, shock towers, shocks, chassis, arms, and skid plates. Throw in about $150-250, and you'll get a durable car...just something to think about...although the build quality from what i noticed is tiptop.
Out of the box, this is the most FUN rc i have ever tried in my life...just the raw simpless of the car with a huge power system makes you take the car by the reigns..and it pushes you to push it to the maxx...Due to the low durability out of the box, if your battery lasts you 30-40 mins...and if you are doing hard bashing..expect 15 mins before your first weak point breaks...but itll be SUPER fun while it lasts...
If your stuck between the erevo/emaxx/savage position..ill cut it down for you..
If you are looking for a durable as ******* basher that can take abuse but is horrible handling wise...get the savage
If you want a car that is more based towards racing, yet still can bash...get the revo
If you want to have the fun of your life for a short period of time...get the emaxx. It can do racing better than the savage, and with some upgrades, its a capable basher.
