    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.

    I have a set of their Protrac arms on my 4Pede for years. Sadly they are no longer in production.

    They fit perfect and are as tough as they come.

    Traxxasís business model is to offer a good basic model, and then sell you some upgrades to go with it. Many third party companies then start offering parts because Traxxas is so darned big now.

    Considering an X-maxx

    Weak point in the front end.

    Here is where it hit on my TBone bumper.

    Oh, I will check the drive shaft for straightness. I will disassemble the diff. Where should I look for damage in this kind of wreck.

    Thanks

    Weak point in the front end.

    I run my X in a big field with lots of uneven spots. On one end is a sidewalk. One 3 foot section has less dirt by it but that is king of hidden by the grass. Iíve been driving over it for years.

    Itís just a preference.

    They are out of production at Proline. Thatís why I took them out of the front and kept them for replacements.
