    To answer myself. I bought Louise Xcyclone wheels for my 8S Xmaxx and got rid of all balooning! They look good also but since I can't upload photos to the forum I have nothing to show One thing tho is that before I used to be able to ride on top of loose snow but now it just sets in and get stuck. Could be that the snow got a bit wet today but I think the balooning might have made it possible to drive around in the snow before

    Once again I had to order parts... RPM rear bearing and a pair of Louise RC wheels. I also put a tire in the oven (150C) to unmount the tire from the wheel (traxxas Xmaxx original). It worked well.

    What did you do with your X-Maxx today?

    No it did not Im very happy about that I broke the rear bulkhead and shock tower as well as punctured one tire but it is super gluable
    Also the front right axle carrier and steering knuckle are both broken but the axle is fine

    Unmounted everything to see rear gears problems and change rear axle carriers because of traxxas original ones poor quality...

    Today I tested out my 3D printed air scoop. I changed the gearing to 18/54 on my 6S and instead of messing with cooling fans I figured this was an easier way to get more air down onto the motor. Looks pretty cool, too

    ... Nice job. I do like the part design and quality (at least on the pictures) but what about the body installation now?

    Thanks! It was printed in glass filled Nylon which is pretty beefy stuff. Snaps onto the chassis rails and so far it stays put pretty well. The body fits on top of the air scoop no problem.

    I love the idea, but if you land on your lid, Your printing another. Works looks great.
