    What GPS module are you running, does it send GPS data to the TraxxasLink app?

    Im not using Traxxas Telemetry, upgraded to Graupner X-8E with GPS-Modul Graupner HOTT S8437 and TSM gyro... Yes it sends GPS data/Speed direct to the X-8E, can see live GPS speed, temp, volt...etc. all-in-one...very cool! Oops, old transmitter on the photo, sorry...

    Does the graupner x-8e come with all the telemetry sensors as a ďpackageĒ? Or did you have to buy it all separately? Iím looking to upgrade my radio system in my X-Maxx as well...
    What made you choose this radio system over the others like Spektrum or Futaba?

    I was thinking of Futaba 7PX first (expensive) but Futaba don't have GPS module. Spektrum DX6R i don't know..for less price i got all i wanted. Graupner X-8E doesnt come with sensors as a package.. you will need to add it (not much), GPS receiver cost most, like 80USD. You can add very cool decal sets.. i did

    I puffed my 25c batteries... Maybe the Max6 tried to take too much power on theses batteries...

    One batterie have a dead cell and voltages of the 2 others cells is 2.773 and 2.648 . The other batterie seems ok even if a little puffed.

    I think it was suggested that the low c rating of the traxxas batteries sometimes contributed to their puffing up due to high amp draw.

    During the previous post (video) a smc 100c puffed a little bit... 1 cell decreased to 2.9v and the Max6 lvd was set to high....

    It was a Gif maker app on my phone. makes a 6 second gif, i think its only 3 second long clip, so it made it longer.

    I'm working on the full video from this day, now.

    it rained pretty heavily in the afternoon so I charged up the batteries and took it out. The worse the weather is, the more I get the urge to drive it. Hoping tomorrow is dry so I can take the Rustler out on the streets.

    If this was for me, I had a early 6S. Now all drivetrain is 8S and it seems to hold except the tires that blew yesterday

    well needed... great idea!

    Today i flipped on tarmac, only the end of the roof and sides were damaged, sliding 30 meters. if i could, i would create black plastic bars like stock cage, same size and coming up from the stock cage underneith in the rear of the roof and going straight forward and down before front window to be attached to stock cage (lay direct on the roof, no gap or coolest if only half the bar was above). might be an idea! ) Ps i saw fastlanercs skid rails, awful... Should look like stock design in my opinion, i will buy fist produced )

    Maybe those big rails are unbreakable but will not protect the body on gravel etc anyway.. point was in my opinion to have a replacable part (stock design looking) for less price.. full cover cages cost like a new body, also not 100% protection. I would rather buy new body or pay 60usd for a clear body and paint/wrap than add all those things... just me. Ps. minim’s design looks cool, like to see end result...

    I agree they donít look good. I didnít see the post where youíd seen them. I like the idea of buying a new body when you need

    well, I did a "bad" drift and the chassis protection hit a bench holder.

    It's the second time it happens to me, the first time it was on a soccer goal cage...

    I really need to have a driver licence for my x-maxx :P
