Traxxas T-Maxx 2.5

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...
FINALLY!!! All of the parts are clean and it is time to start putting things back In the last series, I had multiple people ask if I could show more detail, and that is exactly what I do in this video.

Installing servos into the Traxxas T-Maxx is pretty straight forward, but in this video, we are also going to wire manage this truck to make it as clean as possible! We get to do a little soldering as well. Crimping Tool [URL]https://amzn.to/2GR9v0Y[/URL] Dupont Ends [URL]https://amzn.to/2XUmrcs[/URL]

In this video we go through and set up the suspension on the truck. This includes Ride Height, Camber and Toe In. Caster is where the manual told us to put it and is adjusted via the clips in the upper control arms.
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...
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.
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...
When the T-Maxx launched around the turn of the century, the two speed with reverse transmission on a nitro powered truck was something that people had never seen. But because it had a smaller engine than it really needed, having those two speeds was quite nice. And being able to flip into reverse to back up from an obstacle was something previously only achievable by electric cars with a reversing ESC. This transmission changed the game for large monster trucks and in this video, I show...
This is an in depth video of the Rear Diff Rebuild so it is a little longer than my usual videos. Since the diff rebuilds were so long, I broke them up into two separate videos.
Suspension setup is one of the most important things you can do to have a predictable vehicle. In this video, I show you, in depth, how I clean and adjust the suspension arms to get them ready to install back on the chassis. I also include a quick little setup tip to save yourself time in the future.
