Used but decent FLM hybrid bulks

Front RPM's.I have ordered the rears in TRUE TRACK from HK but they will take a few weeks.

Brushless Emaxx driveshafts and Summit knuckles....

Proline Powermaxx shocks...

Next is an FLM chassis,Brushless Maxx G/box and maybr PM towers.
I have ordered a 2200K motor but it might be too much for the ESC as it's only rated at 80 amps(this wa the combo)

Cool.

Where did you get the FLM items, did you manage to finally get ahold of them?

Hiya mate
I was looking on youtube and it linked me with a fella in the UK that had the bulks so I bought them.Nope,I still can't get hold of FLM:mad:
there was someone from the USA that was breaking an FLM Emaxx but he wanted £69.00(GBP) and a new was only £72.00(GBP) !
so I'll hang out for the reply from FLM.

How do the hinge pins fit in the FLM bulkheads?
Reason I ask, years ago when I got mine, the Lunsford Titanium hinge pins had problems and I had to get a drill on the bulkheads - not ideal.
If yours are 'good used' they should be fine.

In the 'normal real world' that motor should be fine.
Don't 'do an Al' and long-gear it, and you might get away with it.

Over the years I've spent a small fortune on mine, but it is good fun charging up and running on 6S!!!

FLM do the hardened pins mate so I'll go with them..(If they decide to answer my mails...not good for business).
I'll see what the motor/ESC combo go like and weather or not they hold up,if not I'll change them.
