    After watching every youtube video, it looks to me it’s a bit under damped. So a bit thicker oil maybe? Toughts? Anyone?

    It a little soft for big jumps, light bashing it’s perfect. I plan on a little thicker oil and the adjusters on front and rear shocks were at the top so there’s a lot of room for adjustments

    Still waiting for them to ship - can't get a demo, and I'm not sure I'd want to.

    The one at my local shop isn't really a "demo", it's more of a "display only" kind of thing. Currently it is just covered in fingerprints & drool.. lol

    I taped the inside of the wheel wells to protect the paint from tire rubs. Then did the recommended wheel hole tape over thing to keep dirt out. I also ditched the driver insert, connectors and the connector hold down so I can run my lipo wires with non-traxxas connectors into the cab. Now I can reach through the windows to plug in.

    Yes it does, but it straightens out whenever you let it.

    6s. That was about 80-90% squeeze.

    I re-greased my rear planetary today because it has felt warm after running. Hereís a shot of the spool and axle splines.

    I noticed mine was a little warm after the first 15 min. It looks like they donít put much in. Most of it just flings off but I think coating the housing with grease will help keep it cool. How much of a job is it? Are you greasing the planetary gears as well?

    So after about 10 minutes I lost steering, I turned off the esc and then I couldnít get it to turn back on. After about 5 min of messing around with it I finally got it to turn on but still no steering...awesome, I always wanted a $800 paper weight. It acts like the servo is disconnected but itís plugged in. I knew the stock servo wasnít the best I just didnít plan on replacing it this soon

    Sorry to hear. But this is the reason I always plan to replace receiver, servo, and if needed esc if I buy a Traxxas RC. I really wish they would sell their models as kits.

    When I get my udr I’ll do what I did with my Xmaxx. Remove and sell the stock servo, motor, esc, transmitter and receiver before ever running it

    I’ve had much better performance and reliability from other manufacturers electronics

    Yup me too but they try and save money where they can. I planned on tearing it down today anyways but I wanted to at least get through a full pack. I think I need bigger jack stands too. Overall Iím impressed with the fit and finish and detail of the truck.

    It’s about 20-25 screws in. Yes, I pushed some grease into the side openings of the sun gear.

    For better or worse I installed a slower, longer 1520 1600kv motor and ordered a bigger pinion 32p/mod.8. Itís been raining here I needed something to do to it.

    For what its worth, most everybody building TTs do a kind of break in on the rear r&p gears running the truck on the stand to let them wear in, gear mesh, a bit before running hard. I thought that was interesting to do so, perhaps that task is in order with these trucks as well.

    Are you sure it wasnít in training mode? It seems like after I ran a couple packs mine was a little faster, Iím guessing due to everything loosening up but still it seems plenty fast.

    Hobbytown Temecula said they only got 2. 1 fox and 1 rigid.

    i didn't know they didn't sell any fox pre orders.... lol i asked if they had any "preorder slots" left and they said yeah a couple, so i drove there last week.

    i called corona hobbytown first as they are closer, and they told me their first batch of preorders was soldout, and i could still preorder and get the ones after that.

    its most likely they only got 2 as well.

    Temecula said they were told their shipment was coming in april and were not expecting to get these two trucks in. as soon as they called, i asked my boss if i could go and she gave me the rest of the day off, lol.

    Thatís cool!! The lady at HT Corona said there was 2 or 3 preorders in front of my 2 preorders... so that makes me number 3 or 4 out of first 8 she said they were getting. Maybe tomorrow my phone will ring...

    I'm a light to moderate basher, so never really any full trigger pulls, but this truck felt like it needed some ummph sometimes.

    i'll check the mode and calibrate is needed. it might need a light break in like macfab mentioned in another thread, hehe.

    anyways some action pics!
