    Thrash em till it breaks
    Let me know, Iíve bent the aluminum and am on the fence on the steel ones.

    Installed Atomic shock caps & TIN shock arms

    The bottom spring retainers donít screw to the shaft like the TRAXXAS brand. Used stainless wire to fasten. I donít think theyíd come out but might as well.

    Went for a bash session. Park just mowed. Took half the grass there with me.

    Got about 25 mins in before Broke something in front diff. Was in middle of a double front flip with bad landing. So time to see what it needs on the next healing bench session.

    Need to get some stronger stakes for the ramp as the big tent stakes I have metal is to soft and bending.

    Nice setup, looks like the boots would work with Traxxas hubs

    Finally had good weather and enough time to take mine out for its first run today! Ran my 2 sets of 6700 Traxxas packs thru it. What an absolute torque monster!! I took it easy on her for her first run. Just doing some high speed runs back and forth along with some insane forward and reverse wheelies! Next run, let the punishment begin lol.

    Going to buy some smaller shorter 1/5 tires for speed runs soon
    The tires will stop ballooning and increase the speed. I will compare them to my new ones when I get them

    Received a full refund for the gpm axles
    Free hubs- yes now

    Was beating the old 6s Xmaxx hard
    and spun the plastic 50t spur gear
    Waiting on 54t steel spur to continue beating it
    So grabbed the 8s to run the packs down

    Do it faster

    Your speeds will go down due to the smaller diameter and less tire expansion.

    It's very strange how things worked out today , I got the Kraton 8s that I have been waiting for since December , and I got the batteries for my x max also today , so I was given the pleasure of driveing both right out of the box together !!! Well I love my Arrma products , have always been a Traxxas guy , for like 25 years , not even kidding , but today was a giant victory for the x max , I got 2 of the 6700 mha batteries from Traxxas , and three guys took a good run with it we swear it ran for 45-50 minutes , not kidding at all , amazing !! Lost the body a couple times but that's it , great product Traxxas , but we shall see on the longevity of parts but so far thanx much TRAXXAS !! HAD FREEGN BLAST !!!

    Thanks for the picture. Guess itís an optical illusion. In that case stability will be better, but the fact theyíre belted will lead to less expansion and slow it down. Bet itíll feel safer. With my suspension at over 60 mph, I make sure no people are around.

    New Traxxas Differentials, too much time to use in quarantine. Went with the TRAXXAS aluminum diff cases
    and the 7783x spider gear shafts and new spider gears. Gives you backup diffs, canít have too many old parts

    If itís strong enough for the center diff they must be solid. With my OCD itís comforting knowing all diffs are the same

    Havenít ordered the 8s batteries yet but the hardware is complete. At 38mph with the 54/15 on 6s in the driveway

    Iíll need more room to use 8s.

    Guess once Sears, JCP and Nordstrom close at our mall there will be lots of parking lot for awhile
