    Stock gearing?

    Welcome! I'm new to the xmaxx 8s too. Hehe. It sure is a BEAST. I truly love monster trucks, mostly because of the MT look. ��
  3. I just watched a video where the drive train...

    I just watched a video where the drive train noise is exactly like mine, so it looks like it's "normal drive train noise". Is anyone bashing with the optional 46T speed pinion included in the box?...
  4. The Bluetooth module is like $40. If that helps...

    The Bluetooth module is like $40. If that helps to save the ESC, it would pay for itself for that one reason no? Also, all the functionality that it adds like training mode, endpoint adjustments,...

    Cool. I'll order them. They're like $10 for a set. They have to be modified though right? I'll find a video on YouTube about it. Thanks.

    Yeah it has noise, but it doesn't sound horrible. It might have had that noise all along. It seems to be running fine though. I'm thinking about slapping in the 46T spur gear since it's right there...
  7. If it says the ESC is 8s, then I'm going to run...

    If it says the ESC is 8s, then I'm going to run 8s. That shouldn't be a problem. It's like getting a v8 mustang and driving it like a grandma. It's supposed to be designed to handle 8s.
  8. Yeah, it sounds like the noise is coming from the...

    Yeah, it sounds like the noise is coming from the center shaft if I'm not mistaken, but it doesn't sound like the bearings TBH. Still trying to isolate the noise. It's between the center shaft and...

    Ran my xmaxx 8s on loose dirt yesterday and it was fun. I did notice though that I began to have noise coming from the wheels I believe. It sounds like the bearings are already going bad? I'll have...

    Well the main reason I got the BT module was for the firmware updates and to adjust my endpoints, which are very important so that you don't ruin your steering servo. BTW, I had to lower the throw...
  11. OK, so I did all the firmware updates and...

    OK, so I did all the firmware updates and adjusted my endpoints. I don't understand why some people think the xmaxx 8s is slow with the stock gearing out of the box. It's plenty fast for me. And I...

    Just unboxed my Traxxas xmaxx 8s and it's very nice. Did Traxxas update the screws on the bodies since I see plastic inserts underneath the body screws so that they don't punch through or am I wrong?...
  13. Ah OK. Thanks.

    Ah OK. Thanks.

    Have you tried aftermarket batteries with your xmaxx 8s? Thanks!
  15. Thanks. I'll make sure to subscribe.

    Thanks. I'll make sure to subscribe.

    Decided to go with the Max 6. First I'll do all the firmware upgrades then I'll replace the stock ESC. So have any of you here checked your diffs to see how much fluid is in there, or did you just...
  17. I see that the stock Traxxas battery for the...

    I see that the stock Traxxas battery for the xmaxx 8s says : 25C 6500 MAH, so the batteries that I ordered are way above that. So I'm pretty sure I'll be OK.
  18. Good question. There are so many variables in...

    Good question. There are so many variables in that situation that it's next to impossible to answer that. But I've heard of people using the "Traxxas batteries" and there were still issues. You mean...

    Ok, so I'll run the stock ESC and cross my fingers. Batteries are now bought and so is the Bluetooth module.

    OK. I went with these :

    What size washers do you use? Thanks.

    Asked my LHS owner about ESC issues with his sales. He said that out of 30 xmaxx that he sells in one year, about 8 to 10 have had issues. ��

    Hahaha. My 6s rigs are anything but boring I guarantee you. Two of them are truggies and one is a MT. I've never felt bored. I just want to try something new. Hehehe. Thanks. Yeah I'll run the Xmaxx...

    I'm just affraid that it will catch on fire like some of them do. But the question is, how many have done that out of the ones sold? ��. Thanks. I'll be using aftermarket lipo batteries since I don't...
