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.
It's time to get this truck programmed into the Spektrum DX3R Pro transmitter.

Traxxas T-Maxx 2.5
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.
It has been a long time coming, but lets get the AlZRC 380 motor installed as well as the Hobbywing 60 amp esc and the Ikon2 gyro mounted!

You know we are getting close when we install the engine into the chassis and set the gear mesh. In this video, not only do we install the engine and set the mesh, but we also replace that metal spur gear with a plastic spur gear, replace the clutch bell that the metal spur chewed up, but we...

It's time to install the servos on the Goblin 380! We already did this in a live stream, but I'm not going to make everyone sit through over 10 hours of video just to see me install some servos. We we are redoing everything on this helicopter and going step by step. let me know if you have any...
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.

If you want to make your life just a little bit easier, use a servo tester to center your servos before you install them into your helicopter. On the Goblin 380, you can't get the arms off once you install them into the helicopter. You can do this with the gyro, but doing it this way is just a...
This is a *COMPLETE* Shock Rebuild Tutorial, So it is a very long video. Much longer than my usual videos. But I go through every single step of the process of rebuilding the shocks on this T-Maxx 2.5. If you want to see a step by step How-To on rebuilding shocks with bladders, this is it...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
