    Had a little fun over the weekend & had my first breakdown lol. Some how the lower Rear A-arm pin that holds the tire knuckle on worked it way out past the screw that supposed to hold it on, causing it too come apart on a luckily small jump. nothing appeared broken or cracked and it was a quick fix yay ..... is it common for for the pins to work there way out ?

    The blue one got a broken hand when misslanding a backflip, but The orange one just got tired of looking at The little vorza playing around.

    ordered a set of R & L arms, lower and uppers.

    My left lower rear a-arm has been broken for 2 or 3 months now, but the break didn't really effect the driving or jumps ect.

    Will replace the arm before it has a catastrophic accident.

    I just rebuilt my xmaxx. Both front and rear diffs. I shimmed them both. And it is still clicking under hard braking. 2 of my shocks are stuck and broken. What is a good upgrade option.

    Just replaced all the ball bearings. Driveshafts and cups are good. I figured out what was wrong. The slipper was way too tight so when I hit the brakes the diff cover would flex and allow it to jump a tooth. I loosened it up. Soon I will get aluminum covers and they should help.

    I am running 6s with a super high discharge rate. I was running the slipper supper tight so all of the impact when I stopped went to the diffs. And I don't have the 8s center diff to take some of the impact.

    Sorry I am a little bit noob with parts and my english is not perfect so I don't get some details.

    What is the slipper ? Is there any part # to see what it is ?
    Center differential : I know what is the front and rear differential, but I don't know if I have a center diff on my x-maxx (it's a 2d hand one) ; do you have a part # or a picture to show me how it looks like ?

    Thanks.

    I can't find a part number for the slipper clutch. If you take off the cover behind the motor you'll see you pinion and spur the slipper clutch is connected to the really big gear. The center differential is 7796. The center differential is only on an 8s truck.

    You see the two holes on that carrier? Put super glue on the seam,(careful not to glue where the bearing seat)then use a steel wires through those two hole, and twist the wires to tightening it. It could work depend on the breakage. See if it works for you. I did that with mine, and it held up ROCK SOLID til my RPM oversize carrier arrive. Anyways, it is just something you can try doing without a spare on hand. I could have keep using that broken carrier, but I ordered the RPM before I got this steel wiring idea, and it just worked. I wonder if that is what those two hole is for.

    PS: I have some steel wires stiches done on my xmaxx on bumper, and even chassis. It could work for anybody, but that depending on the breakage. And super glue will not hold on 99% repair alone. And that stock carrier you broke cost less than 5 bucks.
    Have fun bashing!

    if its an 8s, you shouldn't have an issue. I run the 8s diffs in my maxx, if its a modded 6s, thats a different story
