    I sold my X-Maxx with Max6 ESC, SMC 9000 3S battery pair, front and rear spiral-cut gears, and VG shock springs for $700. Could have probably listed it for more though. Sold immediately when it hit...

    Can hardly believe it, but I sold my X-Maxx! I had already swapped the ESC to a Max6 back in February, so I would have had to buy another VXL-6S in order to really take advantage of the upgrade kit...

    Can anyone yet confirm that it's the addition of the center differential that necessitates the new upper and lower rear bulkheads? After watching the running video a couple times, the center diff...

    I got rid of my VXL-6S a long time ago, so I called Traxxas and asked if it mattered if the serial number of the ESC matched that of the truck. They said it doesn't matter, so I'm eyeballing a used...

    When I spoke to Traxxas customer service yesterday, the guy specifically mentioned larger drive pins with this upgrade kit. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    If I'm going to feather the throttle I'd much rather it be to keep the front end down instead of feathering the throttle to keep the truck from becoming essentially front-wheel-drive in the case of a...

    I really hope they offer all these parts "al la carte"! If the updated truck comes with these parts then it's inevitable eventually I suppose. I upgraded my ESC long ago to a Max6 and sold the...

    I managed to thermal my Max6 once during the heat of Louisiana summer, but that was without any kind of fan on it. I removed the stock shroud and fan because it kept getting debris caught in it that...

    ESC: Max6 because it's more than enough power for the stock motor and it fits cleanly in the factory location. An ESC plate on the top rails just looks silly to me.

    What did you do with your X-Maxx today?

    Conducted serious surgery by replacing the lower rear bulkhead because I stripped a couple fastener holes by over-torquing the screws. It was certainly more work than I had anticipated! At least...

    I noticed the same thing on my X-Maxx, so I removed the clear silicon tubing around the temp sensor because it is what prevents the heatsink from fully seating on the motor. I also added thermal...

    RPM Wheelie Bar and Rear Bumper Mount

    There goes about $24 of my money! Likely the best aftermarket part made for the X-Maxx since it was released. Should also help with the flexing of the rear bumper mounts and save the body in doing...

    I have the same gap on my truck, so I added a spacer on each side.

    Also, since it's on-topic, I'm using oversized hardened dowel pins as drive pins. I find that I need to trim them about .5mm...

    It's not good to leave lipos fully charged for extended periods, but I bet something else is going on that's killing the batteries. I wonder if anyone else is reliably running those particular...

    Reinforced my new Prographix body before running it. Used ShoeGoo and fiberglass drywall tape, like most do.

    I've never ran my X-Maxx in wet conditions, so I cannot comment about the fans in that regard.

    You might need to calibrate the throttle. Not sure if that would stop the steering from working also though. Took me a while to figure of how to calibrate my Max6!

    xboxice- I had a similar issue with debris in my Max6's fan. So I removed it altogether and ziptied an aftermarket fan above the ESC between the rails. It has worked excellent and never once have I...

    Try tighting the slipper slightly. It's likely slipping too much and generating enough heat to soften the plastic of the spur gear. Same thing was happening to me so I removed the slipper spring and...
