    I doubt the Traxxas 8s using the stock motor will compare to a Xmaxx with a Leopard or Castle motor in it. 50mph on 8s is not even touching what our Xmaxx will do with the Leopard Motor.

    Traxxas battery connectors are a joke when used on the Xmaxx. They barely handle 6s (honestly should not be used with the power draw on 6S) much less an 8S set up.

    I love SMC batteries, really...
