Cars & Trucks

In the last video, we tore down this transmission and cleaned up the case. In this video, we are going to be putting this transmission back together. I'm not just talking about taking the gear sets and putting them back in, I'm talking about taking a completely torn apart transmission, gear sets and all and putting EVERYTHING back together. Once we are done with that, we will put them in the case and close it up. Don't freak out that I didn't use grease in this transmission. I didn't have...
In the last T-Maxx series, this is one part that I skipped over since there was nothing wrong with the transmission. Over the coming years, people have shown that seeing the transmission is pretty important. So in this video I will tear this transmission apart and get it cleaned up. In the next video, we will be putting the transmission back together.
Ah yes, the inevitable part of every rebuild, the tear down. The time when you can look at individual parts and find out what is wrong with the truck you just purchased (in my case, borrowed) to see just how deep you are getting in to it. In this video, we do just that. We dive into each part group and we find some issues that I didn't think would be there. But they are and now the question is, where do we go from here...
It has been a long time coming, but the 2.5 Rebuild Series is finally here! There are thousands of people out there with these trucks and they are always asking how to do "this" or how to do "that" and in this series, I'm hoping to answer all of those questions in detail. I love getting the questions and answering them and when I can turn them into a video series, it makes it even better. In this series, we are going to be going through a Traxxas T-Maxx 2.5 that has, in the most literal...

9116 Truggy - 9116 1/12 Scale 2WD 2.4G 4CH RC Monster Truck - RTR -$42.99 Online Shopping| GearBest.com If you guys remember when I did the review, my 3 complaints about this truck were the non oil filled shocks, which I replaced with oil filled shocks, the very tight and crunchy diff which I have since freed up and did a video on (click the "i" in the video) and the non foam filled tires. Today, we take care of the third issue! In this video, I show you how I glue up Rc car or truck...

9116 12th Scale Truggy Diff Rebuild

Author Rating:
The single worst thing about this truck is the horribly tight diff. I have 3 of these trucks now and every single one of them had a diff that would almost break the plastic dog bones if you tried to spin it. In this video I show you exactly how to go into the diff and free that sucker up! This will give you much more traction in the turns and an all around better bashing experience. If you would like to pick this truck up, click on the link below. 9116 1 / 12 Scale 2WD 2.4G 4 Channel RC...
If you are looking to get into any hobby, most likely you are going to look for some good deals on used products. In this video, I show you what you are more than likely going to get. I purchased both of these trucks for a really good deal and I couldn't pass it up. Such a good deal as a matter of fact, that the issues I found when looking at them was not an issue. Take a look at the video to see what you could possibly get for a little amount of money on a used nitro truck. And...
In this video, I show you how to completely tear down the engine out of your Traxxas T-Maxx. This is not as hard as some would like you to think. We start by pulling the engine out of the truck, followed by removing the ez start then removing the backplate, sleeve, piston & rod and crank after removing the clutch bell, clutch, and flywheel. And if you want to see a very nasty engine, this is it. This is NOT what you want your engine to look like. As always, if you have any questions,...
In this video, I finally got all of my parts in for the new engine including a new engine block since my last one was broke. I also show you how to get rid of light rust on the crank from sitting. Remember, the fuel these use is made up of mainly methanol, and methanol absorbs water, then the methanol evaporates leaving the water and it will rust all your steel components. I also show you how to take the rod off the piston and clean it completely where you get the max power out of that...
In this video, I show you how to properly tear down and rebuild all 8 of the shocks on a Traxxas T-Maxx. Once you are done rebuilding your shocks, your truck will ride better than ever! As always, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, post them in the comment section below.
In this video, we take a complete truck, and tear it down into it's individual components. From removing the shock towers to removing the transmission, it is all coming off of the chassis! As always, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, post them below in the comments section.
In this video, we tear into the front and rear diff's (differentials) to completely clean them, rebuild them and get them ready for some ground pounding action. As you can see in the video below, these are some of the worst gears I have ever seen. I never thought grease could get this hard! As always, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, post them below in the comments section.
