    I like that one. Very nice. I'm tempted to buy one , but I'd really like a 60" cat.

    Very nice looking boat; way better looking than that pink stock crap. When I go boating, I want to look like I'm going boating. I'm not into looking like I want to go shopping with a crazy pink purse that's really my boat. Anyway, great looking boat! Traxxas should offer something similar.

    My snapon guy had a promotion with the xmax and thr m41. I had so many tickets in the drawing but didnt win either of them. I had a 70% chance of winning either of them according to how mamy tickets i had and how many were in the drawing.

    Sweet boat man. I wish i had one.

    Wow! what a find! These are flooding eBay right now which is driving the price down a bit. When I say down, I mean from 12-$1500 asking price to 6-$900. Soon they will all be gone though. I think snap on had the promo/raffle in late april so a bunch of guys who won these and don't run RC are trying to make a killing right now.

    I may have to list it on eBay haha. I think the seller was hoping to win the Xmaxx as he is into RC trucks. He kept the charger and batteries that came with the boat.

    I'm getting one tomorrow for C$600 with battery and charger, the guy won it too but don't want to play with it. So how limited are those, do you have numbers like how many of them was produced. That's why it is called limited.

    As far as i am aware every snap on guy was offered by snapon to do this promotion. All depends on how many snap on owners wanted to participate. There are three snap on guys in the county i live in and they all participated. So there could be thousands. On ebay they are selling from all across the country.

    I asked Traxxas about how many Snap On X Maxxes there were and he had no idea. He thought marketing might know?

    I also asked if they were given special serial #'s to identify which ones were actual SO rigs instead of the person whos slapping a SO body on a regular 8S truck and selling it as "special".

    I don't like boats, but this is a good looking boat!

    Don't remove the Snap-On logo or it'll lose value when you try to resell it. Plus, it won't look as cool.

    So I got mine today and was looking over on what are their differences between the original and SO, it was just the paint and additional charger + Battery, probably SO buy White Hull and do the paint scheme, that's why traxxas people don't have any idea how many of them was produce, and for what I see the guy whom I bought it have tons of SO Tools, probably cost $100k+, it looks like a mini-store of SO that's why the guy win it. I'll post on another page on comparing both models.

    You can buy a white hull, but you have to use the goofy painted canopy. Too bad you can't get a white canopy.
