    Yes, bad esc. Mxl-6 much better.

    well that wouldn't be enough reason for me. iirc there were some comments in YT videos that the esc has been "modified". i am not saying you are wrong, but i wouldn't be that sure just because of the name. for me that issue remains to be cleared up. maybe there was a software update?

    It was probably revised internally. But even if it wasn't it's an ESC on a much smaller and lighter truck.

    Iíll keep my old one for sure. All electronics from the new one will be transferred to my old revo when I sell it.

    Whats wrong with the vxl-6? In my old 6s X had it replaced by Trx when update wouldnt work and the vxl-6 they sent ran flawlessly up to the day I sold it. The new owner bashes just as hard as I did with multiple 6s back to back runs through it, no problems.

    I need just one more rc, then Im done,

    I think it just got a bad reputation since a few guys with the original Xmaxx had them fail, or go up in flames. Really, if the original Xmaxx had the 1200kv motor instead of the 1600kv, it may have been more durable. My VXL-8s has been flawless so far, so there is hope the 6s will be just as good. People tend to forget it took Castle Creations until V3 to get the Mamba Monster figured out on how to keep the magic smoke inside
