    MY co-workers and I had a bash party tonight once we got off work. Two Slash 4x4's, a Slash 2wd, my X-Maxx, and a other brand rock racer all went out to a football field with a empty city canal. After about 45 min of mass carnage, and a bunch of batteries, the only truck left running was my X-Maxx. One slash sheared the center drive shaft, the other a stock a-arm, one cooked a slipper clutch, and the other one had some odd ESC glitch. Man I love my X-Maxx, it's a tank!
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    Well just did a speed test run with f/r spiral cut diff gears,Max5 esc and 23/46gearing,I'm a bit diasspointed,top speed 41mph,it seems like esc wouldn't let it reach full throttle,it takes off very quick but it just won't reach full throttle not sure what's going on,could it be my battery?i fully charged it 5 days ago but didn't get to run the truck til today,I check voltage before running it both batteries were 12.4V and all cells are pretty much the same @4.125 BTW its Traxxas 5000mah 3s 25c.

    Pats4life, my guess is either you haven't properly calibrated the throttle on the ESC, or your slipper is too loose. Might give those things a try.

    I didn't know I had calibrate throttle on esc,I just used the program card,if I'm gonna Calibirate the throttle does the motor have to be plug in esc?i will check the slipper also,I replace the clutch springs with 2 bearings,could that cause the issue?

    Every esc has to be calibrated out of the box. Take a read through the instructions that are included.
    Man i need more than 50 characters.

    I'm still having issues with that. Pinion slides right out of the shaft after a few stunts.

    If I use locktite won't it be a to remove later on if I want to switch to a new pinion gear?

    I've never really had problems using locktite on a pinion grubscrew, even a slight coating of red but most of the time blue just make sure you use a good quality allen wrench. I always use locktite even with the factory dry blue locktite that's added.

    Wait till the abs frame melts to the heat sink fins, keep an eye on it, it will happen.

    Wait till that abs housing melts to the heat sink fins. Keep an eye on it. It will happen. I run up to 220 degrees, stuff melts that hot.

    You'll probably have to convert to Velcro straps like one member did with their X-maxx

    Take a look in my buildthread if you want to keep the bars, I get the feel that the batts are more secure for heavy bashing my way

    Much less clean but no hacking involved and took all of 10 minutes to install. I got 8" velcro straps from Amazon. No modification needed beside removing the light gray battery clips

    But yeah if you have the time & dedication, Viper's mod is definitely cleaner!

    ... As for what I did today? Well like the previous 2 weeks I'm just looking at my XMaxx. It's grounded until I receive a replacement Read Transmission Output Gear I'm envious and impatient but that's part of the hobby isn't it.

    Went to a skate park with my co-workers, and I ran my X-Maxx. I blew up a front tire trying to flip it back over, and after I kept driving it I shattered a front carrier...

    Fun time.
