    How easy is it to work with and what MIL thickness did you get? Is a heat gun needed or will a hair dryer suffice?

    I've never worked with the stuff and was wondering how conformal it really is. I...

    Thanks for sharing the link; that was a good find, but I was really looking for some that would be more accustomed to the stock body. The headlights in that set would pose a problem being they are...

    No, that is the potato chip isle.



    Hey Gripdog; you had mentioned hop up parts in post #5 and I was wondering if that is the name it goes by now, being it is almost three years later since you...

    Traxxas still does not supply only a decal sheet for the X-Maxx; you have to buy the whole body.

    You really didn't address some of my information in post #134.

    The work stands look nice, but a majority of X-Maxx owners I have talked to found that the work stands are more suitable to store the...

    I will have to admit I was at first skeptical myself and ended up eating my own words from my first reply in this thread. It wasn't without good cause to be skeptical because some of the things that...

    Correct.

    This is kind of the follow up video to the one that was posted in post #2 of this thread. At the three minute mark, he is removing the shaft from a truck that was using the center shaft...

    I had pointed out earlier in the thread that it really wasn't a build and I was just in search of a cover or suggestion about covering up the gears. However, after further reading about what I was...

    Actually, $220 isn't bad considering I spent almost that much for a decent set of wheels and tires for my X-Maxx.

    Badlands are $189 and with shipping and taxes now, they are easily a $200 set of...

    Objective thoughts are always appreciated and most of us understand why the center shaft is bending, hence the reason why this center shaft kit was shared. You are correct that if the chassis were...

    Yes, that is very true. The closer you can get the amps to match between your batteries, ESC and motor, the cooler your system will run because one component is not over-stressing the other two.

    If in doubt, you could always see what motors Hobbywing pairs with their own ESC's in their Combo Packages:

    The nut is what they call an M3 Nyloc nut and a 5.5mm socket fits it if I recall correctly. You want to take your original screw which is a 3x12 cap screw and find one that is a little longer, such...

    Thanks grizzly!

    I was originally going to post the link like you did because I saw the embedding was different on Tapatalk. Never would of thought that it shows up as a blank when you embed a link...

    1C is all I ever charge at, and I have two pairs of 5 year old SMC's that keep thanking me for that every day!

    Every single cell of the three cell batteries (3S) balances perfect and I have never...

    Correct.

    Only the torque would be different or distinguishable between the two; except that 35/35 will be more dependent on the quality of your batteries and ESC capabilities as well as your...

    That is the part that I am unsure of until I try it. I'm going to try 33/33, but my truck has been in pieces until I get the rest of my parts by snail mail.

    I would think that regardless of the...

    Complex questions that deserve a good explanation.

    Basically, when running a 1:1 ratio, it is mainly dependent on the pinion size.

    A smaller pinion in a 1:1 ratio will have a slower top speed...

    Hello! I'm the thread starter.

    That cover is no where near tall enough to accommodate a 1:1 gear ratio for B&M gears. The GPM cover you have pictured in post number 40 is a stock cover height and...
