I was given this truck from a homeowner I did a job for about 5 years ago. I just got it running with a new motor and I guess the power prevailed over one of the rear axles and bent the axle. I have been searching ever since then to find a replacement for all 4 axles. What a headache that’s been and nobody can seem to give me the alternative mod needed if possible to use other axles or we’re I can get the same ones. If anyone has some helpful info I would greatly appreciate it. Here are some pics of the beast sorry it’s a little disassembled right now. I do have another post in one of the other threads but am unable to figure out how to link it here. Help with that would also be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance

Can you get a full chassis shot with no body?

You want stock plastic or cvds? Alot of Tmaxx parts are avaliable aftermarket, but alot also dried up since the early 2009s. Stock parts have always been plentiful.

I would like the steel dog bone ones like I have now. The measurements for them are as follows 6 3/4in. From end to end (including cups) 4 3/4 from ball centers.

They ones in the bottom link (traxxas) are the ones I just tried and sent back because they were to long
The car also came with a sirio .17 monster big bore with the grey top not the blue one. It also does not have reverse gear I’ve never got it fast enough to for it to shift gears. Thanks again for the help

That’s a sweet TMaxx! And I love the El Camino body shell. Just a quick thought, I wouldn’t run it with that air filter. It’s not adequate for a Nitro engine. You’d be better off using a proper air filter.👍🏻

Thanks for the response yeah I no I shouldn’t run it like that but I was like a little kid when I got it and that’s all I could find to work for the moment. Will definitely get the right one.

Iy you want to run it with a broken axle, remove both fronts and run rwd. Traxxas had an S Maxx. Rwd T maxx is all it was.

Good chance that chassis is titanium....... 😍😊

Just making sure you know tge 2 screws that go to each arm right behind the wheel, that can give you some width if needed, just make sure the screw has enough bite.
