    Did you check if your esc fan is working? Mine had a busted blade.

    Most likely the batts, Im struggling with 18/54. Gear down a bit and you will most likely be good to go. Was it flashing fast or slow red? Slow red is lipo cut off. Id say you are pushing things with that gearing on 8s and the stock motor since it has so high kv, drawing huge amps.

    It was my battery when it cooled down I check each cell was 3.95 3.96 3.95 3.96
    I guess I'll go back to 18/50 til I get a higher mah lipos.

    Why are you switching back to 18/50?

    Because either my 6s 5000mah 25c & 8s 5200mah 70c lipos doesn't give me much run times with those gearings,so I'll go back to 18/50 for now,while I don't have a better lipos yet.

    My new fan/ESC mount/chassis brace. I just wanted a better way to mount the fans and stiffen the chassis. Will powder coat one and hand polish the other.

    Wow, that's a pretty great idea! Creative way to stiffen the chassis, mount cooling fans, and to have plenty of room to mount things. Not bad.
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    I can get the Mastercam file and give it to whoever wants it. Then you can bring it to a machine shop to have it made. I tried to have Dan from Kershaw make it but he never replied so I had my guys do it.

    That is pretty cool. What is the thickness of the aluminum?

    I believe they use 1/8 which is thick so we could tap screw threads for the fans. I didn't want to have a nut underneath because it will come too close to the motor and I didn't want to reverse the screw so the nut is on top cause that's ugly. I think I used 13mm screws so it's flush with the bracket. Plus I wanted an easy way to replace the fans without taking off the bracket.

    Nice job looks great! I got my new body back yesterday with new paint theme and I'm digging it. Just a bit reluctant to post pics

    It's taped on because I couldn't figure out how to screw it in. The holes underneath wasn't letting me screw into it.

    Excellent paint job - looks great!!

    Won't miss that in a crowd!!

    Built most of mine up - wheels, radio and paint are all that are required - I'm waiting on more-correct-looking wheels and tyres - here's hoping. (Stock tyres seem to perform very well, wheels only cracking under fairly extreme conditions and/or duress!!)

    I had the same problem but I didn't want to use tape and have it fall off. I think I used an M3 screw with a little pressure to start. I've had about 12 runs and so far it is holding up like a champ.

    WOW! you guys need to start new threads with these amazing X-Maxx's you have. Let everyone see.

    Blkdrg808 That's a pretty cool setup to have!
    classicchevy A General Lee paint job will always fit the bill
    atom3624 That aluminum looks very nice and unique build
    We are all one race. The human race.

    Thanks to all for the +ve press on mine.

    Answer to a question asked earlier - MOST of the blue aluminium can be had in red - bellcrank brace is the exception I think - the rest is available by GPM, doing adjustable steering tie rods as well now!

    I used D-Hawk, HR and Area for mine - sorry for the name dropping!!
