    Can someone make sense of the suspension pins for me. I've got myself confused.

    There seems to be 3 sets of pins listed on the exploded views. I thought you just needed a set of 6 for each corner,...

    That's pretty much what I'd decided on. It'll keep the truck running if 1 fails.

    Cheers guys. All sounds like I'm fairly organised.

    Is the cheap bearing set a good plan for emergency spares?
  9. Thanks for all the replies guys. That's really...

    Thanks for all the replies guys. That's really helpful.

    The only reason I thought the RPM would be good for the spares box was the universal fit on any arm. Maybe I go with that idea still & use...
  10. New truck (nearly anyway) - What have I forgotten for day 1 as new owner?

    Wow. You must hate that truck to inflict that much damage in 2 weeks. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I was hoping to avoid shoe glue, well, from day 1 anyway. I thought that was the point of those bodies....
  15. Does the Proline Brute Body need any strengthening?

    So I'm getting closer to buying an X-Maxx, but still got a few questions. Sorry to keep filling the forum with newbie questions.

    I'm thinking about getting a Brute body to avoid wrecking my stock...

    Those are cheap enough and available, so I might give those a go for a first set of batts.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm starting to think I'm over complicating this.
    I've had RC cars for over 20 years, just never spent anything like Xmaxx money on one. Even my erevo was a V1 with brushed...

    Actually, there's another question I've not quite picked up on yet...

    I see most running running 6000 to 7000mAh batteries.
    You can pick up 2 sets of 5000mAh batts for the same price as those,...
