Picked up a new toy…

A couple weeks ago, I picked up a Traxxas E-Maxx Brushless Edition, and some points that anyone looking to buy this truck should know…

  • If you go straight to 6S, you need to make sure your slipper clutch isn’t set too tight.
  • Always check your drive shafts for play before and after running your E-Maxx.
  • If you’re looking for 6S lipo, I would recommend picking up packs from  You can get them fast, and for nearly a quarter of the price of the official Traxxas Packs.  Just note that you don’t get the same warranty or replacement policy as Traxxas’.

After a few runs, it seems I blew a bearing in the rear differential, and it partially stripped the pinion and spur gears.  New parts are on order.

1st post in a long time

IMGP0019So I’ve finally decided that I want to get my personal blog up and running once again.  I had started some time ago, but then some script kiddies got the best of my hosting provider and it’s taken some years to get started again.

I’ll try logging some of my personal projects here, along with whatever thoughts I wish to post.  It’ll take some time to build up a worth while page, but that’s half the fun, right?

I finally decided to get started once again, because, well, I want to build a couple of plugins and a better responsive theme for WordPress than you’d typically find on the market.   Not because I think the ones out there are terrible, only that they’re not what I want.

So that’s it — not much of a first post, but how much boring speak do you wish to see here anyways?
