Is your T/E Maxx ready for the dunes?

Post by SD4x4TRD »

I had some spare time yesterday so thought of a quick and easy custom fab to put a flag on my e-maxx.

I started by having a spare flag in my garage.
I cut it in half and used that length of the flag.
I then narrowed down the edge so it could slide through the body and partially through the aftermarket skid plate, keeping it somewhat secure...

Try it out, you never know, with all the rules the BLM is now enforcing,

it might be required... :wink:
I'd rather dune in a school bus

You hit the gas and that thing is just gonna wheelie. You stop and it's gonna plant the grill. In scale the antena is high enough for a whip flag and you can take that to court :lol: Too funny.

I will be at one of the pads this weekend.... 2 or 3 ??. paddles loaded and t maxx ready to get some attention. I know it won't pass the sound law.
I think the e maxx needs a checkerd flag to be compliant.
