    So far I got 20 entries into my snap on guy. Also you don't have to buy anything my rep just gives me a couple tickets a week. (Maybe because I'm an existing customer who spend money with him.

    Fingers crossed cause I really want it.

    I TRIED picking up one of the Snap Ons due to the random and unknown dates of the ver 2 release. Ended up making a deal with hobby shop to hold me over...lol...

    I bought a ver 1 Xmaxx for 750.00 including all setup/labor and shipping. Its my first... couldn't wait with all the talk of unknown possible release dates for the ver 2. But I read enough to be worried about fire and temp on the ver 1. I think I did okay, as it came with partial 8s upgrade kit ---- just the upgraded TRAXXAS 8s ESC and fan plus full temperature module setup, just download the phone app and go....

    I could not find anything on web about its AMPs on the TRAXXAS 8s ESC from the upgrade kit nor could my hobby shop - so if anyone knows... ?

    I assume it is equal or greater than 160 AMPs, which is what the MAX6 was rated based upon what I found. Then he sold me a few batts (new of course) at 50% off and tested everything and it shipped today.

    I assume it will run cooler on the 8s ESC with 6S batts, so i will not have the problems others had there with or without the fan nor should I have probs with 8s since it is properly rated and has the fan but just in case I have the temp module or temp telemetry that goes to phone (not sure what it is called).

    It was there shop model. Has about a dozen runs on it. They had it running the MAX6 ESC, which I wanted to keep based upon what I have read in these forums,, BUT i had them switch it to the 8s Power KIt ESC (hope that was wise) so i new the telemetry for temp would work without any problems. I was being cautious, hopefully it was wise as i read great stuff about the Max6 and nothing on the upgraded 8s TRAXXAS ESC.

    Then I put the new Ver 2 (Red) on hold. FULL STOP.....LOL...He had four of them on pre-order with his rep and two were already on hold. As of yesterday, his rep is saying delivery for his pre-order of the ver 2 will be late Feb possibly into March.

    I think you did alright with the deal you got. With the fan and 8s esc you could safely gear up if you wanted more speed. If you want to run in 8s though, I would think about upgrading the drivetrain components because I doubt the stock components would last long with the extra power.

    Also, if anyone who got a snap on edition x maxx can help me get one, I would appreciate that. My local snap on guy doesn't have any and won't be getting them.

    @Sparton do you want the SnapOn edition because it's the SnapOn edition or do you just want the new 8S V2 really bad? At this point, you're probably gonna have to wait until the end of the month.

    Red one sold 48 hours ago for 1,375.00 on Ebay. I was watching it for 3 days to bid but went with plan B as i assumed if i jumped in it would run it up to around 1500.00 and as bad as i wanted it, well that is some moolah!

    New X-Maxx 8S - Snap-On Edition

    Hello guys and gals this is my first post new to the board here and honestly new to rc anything I just got the snap on edition 8s red a week ago and it took me a week to open it up as I wasn't sure I wanted it.......well my experience with rc cars is limited to a clod butter I had when younger and it didn't last a day before I destroyed it......I charged this monster up set it on trainer mode and it flat out scared the spit out of me!!!!! It's insane not sure I understand any of the technical terms used or where to get parts and what would be a good idea to do to it first. Thank you in advance

    Just drive it and have fun. Parts are easy to find online. Dollarhobbyz.com is a great place to get factory replacement parts about cheaper than anywhere else. Other than that try to find a local hobby shop. Might be more expensive than online but supporting local buisiness is worth it. Good luck with your new truck. I hope you really enjoy it! ��������

    I kept my old local hobby shop in business back in the day and they were good at what they did. I moved last year and picked the hobby back up this year because of he Xmaxx. The big box HS where I am now, is dense.

    I showed up late Jan and called on Feb 3rd and both times two different people did not even know there was a new Xmaxx. So, I purchased from Richard at Dollarhobbyz.com. He took great care of me. Felt like i was in the store not like i was buying online. He emailed and texted me and added tools at no charge and really took care of my order. have fun GoldenZ, you will be amazed at how may parts are out there and amount of time and mods you can do and still growing. Best truck i ever owned by far.

The good news about that is that (from what I understand) there are hundreds, if not thousands, of these going to be given away at the end of the promotion....in MARCH though.

    Like I said earlier, I tried to bribe her and she said that doing so was a HUGE no-no and would jeopardize her business. Anyone that has one of these is most likely a Snap-On salesperson/dealer that has purchased it for the sole purpose of giving it away in their contest. From what she said I think the other post was from someone that is showing off a bit (understandably) but can't actually use the truck. Just like the girl I talked to, she purchased two, but they are for display only until the giveaway date which was something like March 12.
    Buy it there are a couple on eBay.

    I got a black one on Monday and a red one last Monday, payed $1000 Canadian each, my Snap-On guy showed me his invoice from Snap-On, he pays $975 for them so hes not making much on them. He also told me he can order as many as he wants, and hes not participating in the give away.

    Hes supposed to have a boat for me in a couple weeks too.

    I have Snap-On part numbers for the Black truck and the boat if anyone wants them.

    Hey can you get me the part # for the black boat? My rep said he would order me a boat today but said no promises. He wasn't sure about availability. He didn't say anything about colors though. Thanks!

    I ordered a black one today. My tool guy said $1100 was the best he could do. I'm ok with it since it has batteries and charger. I'm planning on stealing some parts from it and letting my kids run it.

    I just found this forum while lookin for info on the R/C I found out that I won today! Kinda figured it sounded like a good one but sounds like its a whole mess better than I thought it would be. I think its the red one but will findout in a day or two. Ive wanted to get into some R/C for a long time but really couldn't justify the cost of what I liked. Guess that problem is solved!

    What are one of these things worth? I have just won a Snap-on Edition one in their promotion. It's not my thing.

    I have had to remove quite a few posts. As quoted, ALL sales must be posted in the Market Place. This is not the subforum to do so.
