    I bought my Revo 3.3 about 4 months ago and it also came with a loose slipper from the factory. Also, my gear mesh wasn't set properly and the engine mount positioning screw wasn't tightened down.

    Awesome thanks! And electronics other than the 2085X servo upgrade, do you run stock ESC and motor? If so, do you run 8S? if so, have you had any problems with motor heat or ESC giving problems?

    Hi folks
    I am planning on getting the X-Maxx 8S new in a couple of weeks, and I've read some info on toe links breaking easily, hinge pins popping out, ESC's catching on fire, gears stripping etc.
