    I've been wanting an xmaxx since they first came out. Now that there's the 8s version, is it safe to say that most of the bugs have been worked out?

    Also are you stuck running the traxxas tx/rx...

    that's the point of the uninterrc cases. They run buggy/truggy sized 8x16 bearings (pinion and diff). Well proven to be durable and long lasting. I've built a few erevos and maxx-based trucks with...

    It looks like the bulkheads have been made to be one piece and no longer has a separate diff cases that slips into the bulk head. Interesting.

    You cut the positive and negative leads from the servo and splice them to the feeds from the BEC. Leave the white from servo plugged into the channel 1 in the RX. Also leave the power feed from the...

    Don't forget the shocks. You will want to step up in springs and add the variable damper parts to get the suspension stiffer on compression. If you do run 6s just be prepared to eat diffs. You can...

    you wont have issues with the kmaxx diffs. just be sure you have the mesh set correctly and use shims to keep everything aligned. the switch to larger 8x16 bearings pretty much 'fixes' the weak diff...

    I will admit the maxx is a bit harder to drive well and stick landings - maybe that's why many think the maxx trucks are not as durable. For me I found them to both break equally as often but the...

    they are pretty equal durability-wise. the Revo handles better than the maxx, but the maxx is usually the better basher.

    Wow - first I have heard of this law suit. In comparing the suspension designs between the Nero and the revo, they pretty much mimic each other. I can see why traxxas filed suit against hobbico.
