Yeah it sure is. I know the video is kind of lame but I had never put a video on you tube so it was a practice. There will be more sometime soon.
Edit: Is the traxxas brushless setup waterproof? I have read it is but since you have one you may know.

Actually, I don't know. I have run it through small puddles on accident, (it was fine) but I don't think that it is waterproof.

EDIT: Oh, cool! I love that place!

So do think it would be worth it to switch to a pull starter on my tmaxx? i ask because for some reason my ez start battery is not holding a charge so I tried a new battery, and samething. Its not the charger. A new starter battery costs about $15 and a pull starter is $20.

It depends. If you don't have a glow plug ignitor, thats another 20 dollars. The problem could also be the ez start handheld thing or the starter motor. I've had a pullstart and ez start and I'd prefer the pull start. It all depends on what you prefer. The ez start didn't work for me either, so given the chance I'd take a pullstart.

Yeah I got the ignitor. That is what I was thinking it may be either the controller or the motor itself.

Ive got a BL sidewinder 5700-ed Pede, a Mamba 8k-ed RC18T, The new E-Maxx running 2 2s TrueRC lipos, a Micro-T, a Sprint 2 drift machine, and a Mantis in the process of being converted to electric.

I run a DX2.0 through my pede and Maxx right now.

The EZ-start system is a piece of crap. Switching to a pullstart setup would save you mass, and a lot of headaches.

Well I put in the pull start today and it was a success after retuning. Seems alot more durable than the ez start. I figured it would cost me $60 to replace the electric start when a pull start was $20.
