    First, remove the pinion and just roll the car by hand. It should be smooth and quiet. You can tell if it is drive train or just the motor acting up.

    If you are looking for speed always go with the higher S battery. Less current and less heat. You can gear lower

    There is some people that take the Traxxas 1/10th chassis to 100mph.

    Top speed is the terminal velocity when running wide open throttle.

    Acceleration is whether it takes you 30 seconds or 5 seconds to get there.

    IMHO if you bash then go with the lower KV.

    You should b able to gear up to any (UN) reasonable speed but retain the ability to gear down if you are bashing in rough terrain.

    Then why did his servo horn break and he feels he needs a stronger one?

    The servo saver only absorbs some of the shock.

    6829 Rear Bulkhead upgrade.

    I see they are still using it on the Hoss.

    This is the one place where an aluminum upgrade works, if your servo is up to a bigger hit.

    Remember, if the plastic doesn't give something farther up the line might.

  22. New to the forum with a bulletproof Xmaxx (hopefully)

    Itís mostly how you ran it.

    I ran my X on 6 S for 3 years and never broke anything but the speed spur.

    This year I went to 8S and have broken several parts. More air time will do that.

    Also get a set of the 7759 washers, lock washers, lock tite blue, and aluminum motor mounts for a much easier and more secure setting of the gears.
