    I actually sold my green Xmaxx weeks ago, and instantly regretted it. Once I found out a orange Xmaxx was at my LHS, I went that day to get it. I do have a Erevo 2.0 as well, so all my truck bases...

    My guess is that the Savox servo is either using too much BEC power, or has damaged the BEC circuit in the ESC. If you have a 6v receiver pack, you could plug it in directly to the receiver and see...

    Yes, you are correct. Unless you are running an external BEC with that Savox servo, you will be burning out the BEC circuit in your ESC. Your servo is power hungry, and your ESC will only supply 1...

    They will likely ask you to re-calibrate the ESC to transmitter, if you have not tried that, I would try that 1st just to see what happens. Also if this X-maxx has been sitting on the shelf, it most...

    I think it just got a bad reputation since a few guys with the original Xmaxx had them fail, or go up in flames. Really, if the original Xmaxx had the 1200kv motor instead of the 1600kv, it may have...

    Absolutely, The drive train will be bulletproof now. IMO the ESC will be the weak link. This looks like a Traxxas branded esc, no more Castle Creations involvement. I just hope they learned, and...

    Save up and get both! Seriously, I have the Erevo 1.0 and X-maxx. I like them for different reasons, the Erevo on 6s is a ballistic missile, more agile than the X-maxx, and would say its more of a...

    Yes, a kit would be great as well. Hopefully Traxxas will take note. Its not like a X-maxx 1.0, to a X-maxx 2.0. where an upgrade kit was made available. The E-revo was originally a brushed truck...

    From what you have described, sounds like it could also be a possible battery issue. Are they new packs? What's are their specs?

    Traxxas should market the standard 6s tires as performance enhancing. The faster you go, the bigger they grow! Faster top speeds by magically expanding tires :)

    Same here, my pinion came loose the other day and I noticed the new metal spur gear would move back and forth probably 3mm. Seems to run just fine.

    I was under the impression the LVC was "auto calculating" like castle ESC's. So basically it will only work on 4s, 6s, or 8s. It would be interesting if a Traxxas Rep would chime in here.
