Duratrax Maximum BX - After 2 months and 1 gallon of bashing

Duratrax Maximum BX - After 2 months and 1 gallon of bashing

Post by Scheemel » Sat, 04 Mar 2000 04:00:00



I have had the BX for about two months now and am loving it.  It is my first
venture into Nitro and it has made for an easy entrance.

Cons - The body splits between the front posts fue to the size of the nose
and the tight fit of the body - have to shoo goo the nose for support.  Also
have to cut the body as the tuned pipe will melt it away.

Hop-ups - First thing is to take the factory muffler off and replace it with
a tuned pipe.  Then purchase new rims and put some muddin' tires on (I used
the Proline DR 43's).  Purchase the bearing set and replace the bushings.

Pros - I have ran it through the cold and snow of Canada and it has stood up
to the challenge.  NO parts have been broken or needed to be replaced.  I
cannot wait to get something with a .15 or .21 as the .12 satisfied my
nitro-holic habit.

Throughout my investigation on what to purchase for my second RC, I have
found that the BX (or ST) are the best purchases for my new found hobby.

Now time to decide what will be my next purchase.

would a .21 fit into a .12's space?

I have heard that there may be some modification but it will fit.

The Duratrax MT comes with a .16 engine that is VERY strong and the MT uses
the exact same chassis and engine mounts as yours.
