    Are those true beadlocks or just for show?? Nice look!

    I added a third battery to run the vanquish light bar and hot racing fan. I mounted it in the position shown with this battery strap with a double sided tape bottom. I then put another strap longways to secure the fore and aft movement.







    and here is the clear body on stock wheels

    Looks nice man. That's about as clean as a truck as they come.

    Hope you bring it with you to Ultimate RC in Alvin tomorrow.

    Had fun at the track for the little bit i could run this beast. The clicking noise is from missing teeth on the rear ring and pinion gears.

    So I sold my XMAXX a few months back to go 1/5 scale. Did a brushless conversion to it but don't use it much and have been wanting an XMaxx again for bashing duties. I found a guy who wants to trade and it looks like we will seal the deal. I Will take the BL5 950kv combo from it and will go from there. Interested in the Kershaw chassis and definitely his new diff gears and spur. More to come!

    Beware, that right now XLX's or MMX are firmware bottleneck...basically a 3s MM2 or XL2 is faster in aceleration and maybe top speed then with MMX's or XLX's USING 6s. Yes they are fast and powerfull but the firmware is now reducing all the power to 60% or more when using +6s/8s lipos....
    Check youtube or other foruns...the world knows... :P

    Meanwhile Castle says it's working on it...well they could work on it...but that's why every single XL2 disapered from Ebay or webshops a few weeks/months ago... :P

    Is that right, I still have two of my XL2, loving one on the erevo and the other; might put on the other one too.

    oh that may explain why a couple of the guys i race with were saying they lost a lot of power when running the MMX on their buggies and truggies.
