    Maybe new truck (which I doubt), or they'll install new ESC and battery that melted the terminal.

    Or maybe they won't risk it and replace all of the electronics.

    Only time will tell lol.

    Picked up my Xmaxx today!!!

    They replaced:
    ESC
    Motor
    1 Traxxas 8400 Lipo battery (the connector melted)

    And for courtesy:
    They replaced the right front wheel (was cracked)
    And the upper chassis support brace (melted due to fire)

    All for free.

    Traxxas is just simply awesome. This is the kind of stuff that makes customers return.

    They didn't question it, they didn't hesitate. And it took 2 days to get my truck back in my hands because I'm local to them!!

    Traxxas did what was expected of a good company that stands behind their products.

    I also hope, and sure, Traxxas will learn what happened.

    5000? Really?

    I just experienced my esc start a small flame today and I notice on your picture the flames started on the same side as mine. I will be posting a video on this. If any of you experience any fluttering on top end in my opinion this is a warning sign the esc will go out. The sad part is this flame started on a 18t pinion 46 spur and not my high speed gearing of 25tpinion 46 spur!

    You never answered in the other thread, where are you getting these numbers?
    I need R/Cers anonymous.

    I just posted this in the only thread. Mods, if it's needed, join the threads or do what's needed.

    I know for a FACT that Traxxas has sold more than 5,000 X-Maxx's. The distributor HRP, which is only 6 mile from my LHS, has sold out of 2000. That's not including all the ones bought directly from Traxxas, or Great Planes, or Horizon, or even private sales. That's only what I know about here in the USA. I can't guarantee it's over 10,000, but it's most likely safe to say it's probably around that number. I do know more than 5,000 have sold though.

    I'll cease talking about number's though. I can't guarantee 100% these numbers, only Traxxas can.

    Let's get back on topic please....
