Perhaps a new thread is a good idea, so let us continue here.

Cheese, dont get an s-10 extreme they really suck, especially since the one you were lookin at was the four banger one. i have a friend who just sold his because it was slower than a civic and it was so low to the ground that it was worthless as a truck, you should just get a normal s-10

Chevy SSR, 30/40's style pickup body, convertable with top mechanically stored between bed and cab, and not to mention the vette engine in it. Check out the Chevy Site.

Its not supposed to be practical, just fast and neat.

In that case I give motor trend a p00pie review!

Here's a question, should I simply buy a new 2.5 traxxas engine and the conversion kit for my Tmaxx, or should I just buy a sportmaxx and transfer over my goodies?


Engine: $130
Mounting Kit: $42
Sport Maxx: $310
REVO: $500

Goood question, Nick.... did you put the widemaxx suspension on your old Tmaxx??? also... does your old one have 2 gears?? its a good discussion... mebbe just wait for the revo? well.. i guess it all depends on what you wanna do... you could just get a os cv-rx for it... and not change a thing, or a fantom .12 or .15.... its all relative.... i suppose....where do u think you're headed with it? i mean how much in upgrades have you done to it as well?

i wanna go see Lou and put myself on the list for a Revo...... i'd prolly just play with the revo to start...

Nick, if i were you i would prolly just wait and get the revo, as awesome as the t-maxx is the revo looks incredible.

about the ssr it looks pretty ugly and prolly handles like trash. but the corvette ls6 motor is just plain sweet. So i guess i cant badmouth it

Yeah, I have the proline widening kit, ball bearings everywhere (I guess that means I just put them in the steering), no reverse, top threaded body shocks (Integy, I think is top), aluminum blkdh braces, old differentials, aluminum skids, aluminum tuned traxxas pipe....

It always ran so well....I don't know what to do...


I don't think I want to go the OS route again, I've had 2 through my truck already, I was thinking about the fantom .15, but they're pretty expensive, anywhere from 140-170 (online atleast), and everywhere is out of them.

I don't know.....

hmm.... i guess you'd go the new traxxas 2.5 method then... BUT you'd need a new pipe header... i'd give you my old stock one if the engine didnt come w/ it... oh well... i wouldnt know what to do in your situation either....

kawk, cauk. where are you guys from Boston??? :p I have to watch what i say. I just landed a new job and will be up near boston for 3 months


Mike C. You got to Chill out on the track and on here. I got booted twice on sunday, but i didnt say anything. Once was by you, after you were done, and i was tring to finish my lap up. I dont remember if you even gave me the ohh sorry line. I also think that might have been the 3 seconds that i missed qualifiying 3rd in the main by. Then i got booted with in a second of the horn going off in the main, so i started half a lap down. :freak:

BLAH BLAH BLAH. the truck might be slower than a civic, but look at the weight. I had an s-10 with the ZQ 8 suspension in it, and i could out handle a civic any day of the week. Kinda like on the track, doesnt matter how much HP you got, if you cant put it to the ground in the corner, whats the point??
