    And if you are going to take it apart to replace the servo gears then you may as well install an aluminum servo horn. I use Hot Racingís. I use HR Spurs and generic pinions.

    I loved driving my T/E Maxes, but I just found them over complicated and fussy to keep adjusted right. The 8 shocks were a PITA too.

    Xmaxx Motor/esc suggestions

    The van body is cool.

    RPM uses the bend but not break theory.

    I personally do not like the pin system Traxxas uses so I like their bolt kits.

    There were some early reports of XMaxxs breaking diff gears with the self righting mechanism. I was only running 6S at the time so it never really worked for me.
