    At last, I made the skate wheels mod for the wheelie bar, special thanks to OverpowerXmaxx to tell me the tips for it.

    Had the front bearing fail for the center spool/diff on the the original 6s Xmaxx
    4 year old bearing finally spewed it’s balls- it had been cleaned and lube a few times, but then neglected
    - original 6s center (not a diff) is gear still good
    Now rebuilt/ready for years of abuse

    Enjoy your Xmaxx

    I broke an arm the other day and while fixing it I found the pin retainer was gone with the broken piece. LHS was out so I printed one up. I might print a batch to have handy in the tool box

    Tried the 1200 motor on 6s the last 2 days. Thereís a definite loss of speed over the 1600. The 1200 almost feels like I still had the slipper clutch vs the center diff and Cush drive with a noticeable difference in crispness and reaction to throttle input.

    Found the 1200 at a great price so should be a good backup and it sounds like 1600 reliability decreases on 8s?

    Gunned it up a hill fast enough so it jumped into one of those enclosed dog parks (no, I did not crush anyone’s dog, it was empty), and stripped my pinion and spur. Trying to find replacements that won’t strip.

    Ordered the new roof protector and the 7713X roof brace for the clear body. These will become standard on the new XMAXX version. Looks like a new hood design?

    Amazing piece, like it very much. Looks like Traxxas has a little update in the model.

    I just installed the RPM skids on my Brute body. I like this one better as far as looks. Wonder if it would fit properly on the Brute body.

    Not sure, I know you have to use the new brace to install on the V 1/2 Traxxas bodies. Iíll have to put 4 holes in the roof of my clear body to mount the Traxxas skid.

    Received the Hot Racing shock springs. Put the black HD on the rear and Blue medium on the front. The Red soft feel similar to stock.

    Now I get a little inside wheel lift when flipping a quick u-turn. Should work well when I get it out to some dirt and jumps. The group pic is off of the website.

    Today I get to fix the issues from the bash session on Tuesday
    https://photos.app.goo.gl/PRomCMXeBdsUq73Q8

    Broken front a-arm, bent axel, broken rear skid plate,. Screw pulled through the front shock towers,. Rear upper a arm came out ( not sure why this one happens consistently, it's as if it bends enought that it pops off the hinge pin.) Oh and body needs fixed as multiple screws pulled out of the body in front as only 1 screw out of 4 still there.

    When I ordered my body and mounts I forgot to add the inner brace. When I called in to see if they could add it to my order the Traxxas tech asked if I wanted to add the roof protector and what color.

    The next XMAXX version will come with it and you can add it to any other version by ordering the new inner brace and the skid. I think it comes in Red, Blue, Green, Orange and Black.

    7713X is the correct brace and the pic shows the brace part #ís

    I may stick with the clear for now.

    Front right lower a arm pin at hub came out. Put it back in the. Then Lost pin to the right front shock on lower a arm. I got extras. Luckily. I'll fix it in the morning and bash some more.

    Integy stand came today. Very well made and fits the car just right.

    Keeps the wheels off of the counter even at the lowest position.

    I bought them off a local Facebook seller. They are plastic for skateboards or bmx. They are similar to a design by either ten-eighty ramps or discount ramps.

    I'll try FB or other apps. As nothing is in stock for a ramp big enough or costs over 300$. When. I searched a few months ago. Same issue. Nothing available to buy. As all out of stock.. or were to small for the xmaxx.

    - Pro-Line 1/5 Traxxas X-Maxx Dual Rate Spring Set
    - Pro-Line 4.0/5.5" X-Maxx Trencher Pro-Loc Wheels
    - Bashed it and covered it in mud :-)

    I did find these. https://www.freshpark.com/bmx-spinekit-253.html

    Sound some vids of the older model. But not the new one. Send them a msg if will hold up to xmaxx. Wouldn't be hard to make a leg extensions for a higher vert.

    Been unable to find the plastic ones with a arc that are wide enough for xmaxx.

    Was going to build my own metal one but time on labor and borrowing welder and bender not worth it. Easier to spend the $.

    It's a really expensive model, I prefer to rent a welding machine and made one.
