    Is there a slight dimple to assist on the motor shaft?
    Is the grub screw pointed at the end? Some 'flat' it a bit - larger surface area on the shaft.

    Take care putting semi-permanent threadlock...

    Regarding O/P, which X-Maxx do you have - 6S series 1 or 8S series 2 (with centre diff)?

    I think part of it is also that the alternatives are so much better for similar or less money, and generally don't go wrong.
    They're not infallible, and I suppose if we were to 'statistically...

    Yes, Castle Creations - it was an old one I had 'on the shelf' in the garage - actually one they replaced after I nuked one (I'm on their blacklist for overgearing apparently!! LOL!)

    The Max5 / CC2028 seems to be the optimum 'reasonably priced' combo for (much) higher power / speed for the X-Maxx.
    I'm quite happy with mine.
    I 'scratchbuilt' my X-Maxx when only V1 parts existed...

    Correct.
    That's what I was saying. With the lower powered standard set-up it seems to work reasonably well.
    I put 55k in my diffs, as my motor's a LOT more powerful, but kept it very light on the...

    Definitely have to agree to disagree there.
    I admit that V2's seem to run OK, and with that setup.
    I also admit that my motor is a little more powerful than standard - a LOT more and was totally...

    To be honest, I don't see the point in locking up a diff with 20M 'putty' - may as well fit a spool.
    If you have the time and patience, you can 'dial it in' just the way you want it.

    Fantastic Effort!!
    Any chance of firming-up the suspension, fitting a covering 'inner tub' and making it an R/C ride-on again? Could be fun!!

    I use 8 mm bullet CC connectors, and probably mainly for that reason.
    I never seem to have much luck soldering up Traxxas connectors, particularly with the heavier gauge wire!

    Loving the blue one.
    Do you still use the stock 'roll cage' parts - will have to I suppose to fit / remove the body.
    Looking good.

    No replies?
    Those skids seem to be covers rather than steel replacements - just add weight, and a little bling - which will scrape and probably rust in time ... perhaps not best option.

    Hi Steven,

    Please don't be insulted by my reply - it is made with good intentions.

    E-Revo ERV (ERBE) - run 6S.

    Wouldn't run a 1/10 ERBE 3S - surely that's under-powered? !!
