    Good idea also!

    Would lowering or raising the rear via push rod hole adjustment also help with preventing shock rod rip out?
    As in: do you need to lower or raise the rear end?

    Here's my experience:

    On my first (original) 6S X-Maxx, I changed to the MAX 6 to run much taller gearing on 6S and to 'awaken the beast'.
    And compared to that tiny one-time VXL-6S from the 'V1'...

    Remote on/off switch doesn't work (properly)

    Maybe a relink with the receiver and transmitter?
    Not that I want/dare to try, but I am actually curious what happens when you allow it to perform that "VXL-8S" update it proposes.

    Moving to Blue - Purple (springs) ?

    I've always ran silver springs front and blue in the rear on the 'V1' E-Revo Brushless Edition.
    Handling was ok, onroad, offroad, some not too crazy jumping.

    I swapped that setup over to the...
  12. High-Voltage Power Amplifier with 'normal' led lights?

    I like the concept of the High-Voltage Power Amplifier providing 'clean' and dedicated power for lighting, and moreover the ability to control its output channels remotely via the Traxxas Link app.

    I broke a shock during some heavy jumping, rear left shock rod end tore off clean from the treaded piston end, losing the spring retainer in the progress (flew into the abyss).

    I'm on that gearing also, and currently even settled on that gearing as 'all around' for 50/50 onroad/offroad on 6S, going back and forth between stock Talon EXT's and Pro-Line Trencher X's.

    Stainless screws for the E-Revo 2.0

    TRX 5650R unfortunately doesn't fit in the 2.0. It's just a tad too long.
