    I highly recommend replacing it. It's terrible in every sense. The output is very muted compared to a Max 6 or the 8S esc. It's probably the worst ESC I've had since mechanical speed controls.

    Contact Traxxas.

    There's many reasons. Could be ESC failure if it was not the latest version. Could be battery failure.

    You won't lose any torque. The xmaxx is undergeared from Traxxas IMO. Breaking gears has nothing to do with ratio. Try 22/46, you'll be amazed. It will wheelie more than stock, stay cool, and add...

    Yup. I have no intention of 8S with the way it runs. Motor stays cool, power is huge and wheelies more than I need it to.

    I'm running 22T/46. 24/46 is also doable. The Xmaxx motor responds well to gearing, and you may not even care about 4S packs after the above.

    I was anxious for an official aftermarket option. I ended up not being a fan of the proline design though. They are like a slightly larger 5th tire IMO. I wanted something that was more "monster"....

    tough to judge from the pics, but it looks like the overall height is the same or slightly less than the stock tires. Despite the sidewall dimensions.

    not that I've noticed. Even 22/46 was enough to make an 8S consideration fade for me. I'm now content with 6S only.

    Don't bother. Gear it up. Pinion is far cheaper than a new motor. I'm running 24/46, it's extremely fast on 6S
