    I tried blue loctite for 24 hours, too. Still had issues.

    I should have added, in my case, I could visibly see the flat spot on the motor shaft tapered along the entire length, narrowing towards...

    Yeah, still an issue, but an easy fix.

    Line your gears up, give the pinion grub screw a good crank, and then remove the pinion. Take a dremel or other rotary tool and put a divot in the motor...

    PowerHobby produces belted tires on black or colored wheels in a couple of different tread patterns. A set of 4 tires on black rims goes for $130, whereas the colored versions are $150.

    I've...

    As others have said, RPM hubs and bearings for the rear.

    For the front, practically any third-party bearing is better than what traxxas supplies. I'm using Fast Eddy bearings (eBay) and have yet...

    The easiest way I've found is acetone. Get a bucket large enough for a tire, ideally with a lid, and soak it for a day. The lid is to keep it from evaporating too quickly. You can get gallon jugs...

    I had the same issue. Apparently nobody sells replacement foams. I have a complete set of tires with no more than 3 days of use that I now have to scrap.

    If you're handy, you can build a foam...

    I did all that, and even added a length of nylon rod between the hooks that slip under the shock towers, thinking it would help prevent the body from compressing, lengthwise. It really hasn't...

    I've had my X-Maxx for a little over a month and shredded 4 pinions\spurs before I discovered the cause.....indeed, the pinion was sliding off the motor shaft. When viewed from the side, the flat on...
  9. Are shock and diff seals available separately? I can't find them.

    In my 30 years of doing RC, I've never once wore out a shock piston, and I certainly don't anticipate destroying an aluminum diff housing in the x-maxx. While not terrible expensive, it seems...

    I've had mine for a couple of weeks. Here's what should have been addressed from the factory:

    1. Stock 2085 servo is weak and fragile. It couldn't hold a turn in grass at speed, and mine...

    I just blew another one....Brand new two days ago. I don't get it. I'm not pizza-cutter'ing or doing speed runs. I'm running around a 1/10 track in the back yard with stock (54/18?) gearing. ...

    No water. Taped up the holes, drilled the center of a couple of lugs. Been doing this for years without issue on smaller models. Heck, it hasn't rained in a couple of weeks. I was hoping for some...

    Not unglued. The foam inside came apart and is now bunched to one side.

    I can find foams for pretty much everything but the X-Maxx from various online stores. Nearest hobby shop is an hour away. I don't expect to find foams, but hopefully I can find a set of X-Maxx...

    You know...that didn't even occur to me. I may just get lucky. I'll give it a shot. Thanks!
  16. Foam insert came apart, can these be purchased by themselves?

    As the title states, I had a foam come apart this evening. The tires have plenty of tread left, as my XMaxx is only three days old. Can these be purchased separately? I can only find foam\tire...
