    Like them a lot. Fun at full throttle trying to lay a strip of rubber on the concrete. These can be balanced
    as close to zero expansion.

    Iíve added so much alloy weight and with the Integy sway bars you have to really try for wheelies, stays planted and steers great. Using 50/19 right now.

    Going three quarter throttle on dirt road, lost control crashed roof first into a large tree, five foot off the ground; hit end of guard rail with roof of truck causing a loud bang and guard rail to vibrate. Both hits no damage to xmaxx and both times direct hits on RPM roof skid protectors. Truck is tough and so is RPM. Also, slammed into a chain link fence, T-Bone front bumper did its job. Xmaxx is one tough truck!

    Stock carriers/bearings or the upgraded RPM or ProLine ones? If stock, replace them with the RPM or ProLine ones. Those anemic stock inner bearings just don't hold up very well.



    If you go with RPM, don't forget to grease the bearings in the kit before you run them as they only ship with a little anti-corrosion oil in them.

    They were stock carriers and bearings I cleaned it and flipped it around just blew off other side. Ordered my rpm ones already so waiting on those, I just still wanted to run my truck cause its a blast to drive around.

    All Xmaxx’s motor bearing maintenance achieved > dirty

    Down an bound to test ‘em again

    Most important bearing to keep
    clean and lubed-is the motor bearing by the pinion
    Most expensive to replace damage from a failed bearing
    Bearing freezes up, then melts the plastic bearing carrier
    wfo aluminum end cap $45+

    When was the last time you had your motor apart

    changed the diff bearings. 1 out the 4 actually moved, the rest were frozen. soaking the old ones in wd40 to clean them up and see if they are still good. so the truck should move a lot better now.

    So the UK is in lockdown again at the minute, but we are allowed out to exercise. So, I took my truck for a walk to get some exercise. There's a great spot 5 minutes drive away, in the middle of nowhere. It was a bit muddy though after all the rain & the diggers working there. (Hope I'm not going to lose this place, it's so good for RC cars!) Found a few mounds of chippings where they have been clearing trees.


    Truck needed a bath when I got home.



    Sorry for the bad action shots, I can't shot & drive! How people get video while driving is beyond me.

    You did well. Just glad you got out and put in work. I use a GoPro and have a knock off as well for video. Good investment. In the speed run world one hand driving isnít an option.

    Hey everyone im new to the forum, and New to Xmaxx for about 3 months now and ive been tinkering, modding, fabbing, and of course BaASHInG! Some things i did today was install stainless screws/painted krylon fusion red proloc rings, and did some tire lettering on the proline trenchers with silver sharpee.

    Yes it's a custom one made from stainless scrap, some 1/2" thick rubber to keep it from slipping off, and a random piece with a bearing for the turntable use.

    Left the X-Maxx home and took the Mini E-Revo.
    Broke it.
    Lesson learnt here, take the X-Maxx if there's a ramp.

    Installed some Amazon Special C-hubs/steering knuckles(4pieces for 1/4 the price of the name brands so i went for it). Everything fit, bearings fit perfectly, no issues while turning, only issues were a 1mm up/down play on the C-hub to steering knuckle pins (could be resolved with a shim), also if you look at the bottom of C-hub its alot different than the stock ones, probably suppose to only work with this brands aluminum arms.

    Ya they are decent just utilizes stock bearing sizes though. But ya they aren't triple bearings, I think Vitavon makes the super beastly triple bearing ones, and maybe one other mfg. I can't remember.

    Found a failing trans shaft bearing on
    the original 6s Xmaxx
    when a new 19t/50t wide spur gear installed
    running stock 8s tires again
    18/54 was not as fun/fast on 1600kv 8s max6

    Used motor bearing installed in the 8s Xmaxx
    Replacement 6x17x6mm motor bearings ordered

    Xmaxx released 5 years ago
