    Thanks for the reply Painter, but my problem was definitely the outgoing gear - a section of teeth on the larger aluminium base section were stripped off.

    Hi All. It's been a while since this post, and Traxxas still doesn't sell a gear set for the 2085X servo. I can't get the aluminium replacement part I need (the bit that the servo horn connects to)...

    Anyone know if Traxxas will be making a gear set available for the 2085X servo? I damaged the bit that the servo horn connects to, so I've been using the old plastics ones. Unfortunately they don't...

    I totally agree with this. I'm still running 6S, but after installing the upgrade kit I haven't broken any of the driveline parts. Before the upgrade I was constantly breaking stuff (OEM and...

    Thank you TimoJ and Flux Capacitor for clearing this up. I had made the assumption that the motor thermal shutdown didn't work because of the "disabled only" option on the Max6 and because my X-Maxx...

    Someone might want to correct me on this, but I think you lose the motor thermal shutdown (you still have the thermal shutdown on the Max6, but not on the motor).

    I have the Hot Racing steering stuff in my X-Maxx and yes it definitely reduces the sloppiness. However, it also puts a lot of strain on all of the other surrounding components. I've also upgraded to...

    This is just a guess but it could just be dirt that's getting in. It would turn black as it gets chewed up through the gears.

    I finally managed to order my tailgate protector for a total cost including postage of US$21.11. I hope the X-Maxx owners living in the US appreciate how good they have it compared to the rest of us!

    Thanks! Unfortunately the US site won't sell to me in Australia so I've asked my LHS to chase it up (they already have it on back-order for me). Thanks for the heads-up :)
