    To keep tires from self-destructing, you can do the tape mod and turn them into poor man's belted tires.

    The 930 and 630 are both good in the X-Maxx. The 930 has more torque but the 630 has more than enough too. As for the horn, I used the Promodeler one.

    You can get the servo + beam mod + horn as a...

    Yeah, the ProModeler servos are pretty awesome. I run the 930 in mine. It's a beast.

    It's not a bad plan to buy a full set of bearings from Fast Eddy or someone else to have a supply on hand. The most failure-prone bearings on the X-Maxx are the inner hub bearings. If you buy the RPM...

    I have PowerHobby belted wheels on mine too. The pattern is very similar to Bandlands and they are nice and stable at speed. My only gripe about them so far is that the rear wheels rub the body when...

    Not impossible, just need to use a different radio protocol. The Drone guys using TBS Crossfire are getting up to 12.5 miles in range. Obviously that gets a lot less with ground clutter but 3000 feet...

    I'm wary of aluminum parts on the XMaxx because the stock parts are very well balanced right out of the box. (with a couple of exceptions) If you watch Kevin Talbot's videos where he shows X-Maxx...

    I love my 14 piece Arrowmax tool set. Not the cheapest tools but they are top-notch quality. I also use a set of Traxxas hex driver bits for my drill. They seem pretty decent quality.

    Stock carriers/bearings or the upgraded RPM or ProLine ones? If stock, replace them with the RPM or ProLine ones. Those anemic stock inner bearings just don't hold up very well.

    Not overly concerned about it. Still though, at $100 a pop, you think they would have a bit better quality control.

    Yep, RPM or Pro-Line rear axle carriers are a must. If you do get them, be aware that the bearings do not come packed. You have to grease them yourself. If you skip that step they will fail.

    That's what I did. I was hoping I wouldn't have to lose all my settings so I was trying to figure out how to force an upgrade but it's on 11509 now so all good. I'll test it as soon as I can.

    I love re-purposing drone stuff, it's smaller, cheaper and lighter than stuff from the RC car market. The only issue is that most of it isn't waterproof. On my racing drones I can mostly mitigate...

    I've been using a pair of Zeee 9000mAh, 100C batteries. They fit perfectly in the X-Maxx but use pretty much every available mm of space in the trays. They have been good batteries thus far and the...

    How long ago did you buy your X-Maxx? The motor may still be covered under warranty.

    Thanks! That should help bring more attention to the issue. I'd imagine that ANY Traxxas vehicle running away full-bore has the potential to injure someone or do some property damage. Something like...
