    What advantage does the stand give you when wrenching?
    I've always worked on a towel, on a flat bench or table, then have a fixed stand for storage to keep the wheels in the air.

    I think the X-Maxx reputation of being so tough no longer does it any favours.
    There is now the expectation that you can drive it full speed into a wall, use that as a ramp to backflip a house, land...

    Are you in the states? Don't you guys get great direct warranty service from Traxxas if stuff fails?
    I'd run it as is, if anything fails, uprate it while you wait for the replacement from Traxxas....

    Agreed that your receiver is dead. If you're getting no signal at all when measuring the output, it's not good.

    Might be worth touching a soldering iron on to the joint of the output pin. If...

    Sorry, still not been anywhere to do that. We don't have any scales at home. I would think it's not far of stock though.
    If anything it'll be a bit heavier since the motor is bigger, wheels/tires I...

    I know you said the batts are charged, but have you measured them?
    Doesn't channel 2 go to the central point on low battery? I guess this depends what you mean by "silent " on the scope. If there's...

    Are you sure it's referring to forward and reverse of the truck?
    I thought it would be for reversing the way the control works. If the throttle was controlling a servo, normal and reverse would be...

    They look an interesting concept! Thanks for the link, but I've already grafted the shell onto the Maxx cage. Yon can see the rear bars above the truck bed.

    I've ordered a very cheap heat sink &...

    So can't you turn them on their side & print a new bar to hold them down?

    I saw one of those one the UK ebay. Wondered if they were any good. Thanks for the advice.
    I'll see what the next few runs bring. My only worry is that it was quite a cold day, so on a warmer day,...

    Had a quick run at the park yesterday.
    All good barring the motor temp was slowly creeping up. When it got to 150 I called it a day. I'm hoping it was just the long grass I was running in, but time...

    So the Stampede shell is on, sort of... Frankly it's a shocking fit, but will do for the time being. I quite like the comedy look of it, but I'm not sure how long it will last. Lots of tiger seal...

    This is what works for me, I only have 1 transmitter so had to find a way to make it reliable.

    If the truck and transmitter don't connect up first time, don't fire up the app.

    Nice job mate. Look forward to hearing how it holds up.

    Made a bit more progress on the chassis now. Pinion installed & all the wiring is in place, barring the temp sensor isn't yet attached to the motor & the ESC switch needs a home.
    I've also...

    I'm not sure mate. I think the silicone helps it bend more uniformly rather than crease. I think that helps stop the cracks, but I'm guessing.

    Might see if I can use one for the ESC on/off switch.
