    Red face Got my X-Maxx...roller, time to see what goes next... :P

    So...since it came out..i know i had to have one.

    Got one from Germany cheap enough...as a 6s roller...so i bought it!

    And here it is...

    -I had put my Merv next to it to see sizes...

    First thing i made to it...as put a "women" behind the wheel...


    -And a 1/5 wing on the body!



    I think i will stick to a stock motor...since this motors are 50mm diamenter and 110mm long. It's a TPPOWER motor already.
    I don't think i will be using a 1/5 motor on it....

    Now problem is i have no idea if going 6s or 5s... i want this to be a durable basher without going nuts, but still got it? For that it needs a Castle ESC. Is the MMX enough, or it will sweat a lot?


    And 1200kv motor of the 8s version or 6s 1600kv motor from the 6s version?

    Comment's, advices..whatever!
    Thanks very much!

    Around 370€ shipped and i think it might be the 8s version... the seller said it was the 8s version...but i don't know!

    Either way i will run it only on 6s...that is enough for me on bashing! Got the 1275kv motor and ESC, just need time to install!

    The install now is done, but the build is never ended! I know... I have more Traxxas and other brands! :P
    Next step is finding some shock socks!

    And here is the "First" run video:

    First off, thank you for the videos! People don't realize or appreciate enough the effort that goes into making them, let alone the effort, time and money put into the builds alone.

    Those E-flight batteries are very good and I think they are underrated when it comes to their performance. They recover quickly and charge seamlessly in retrospect.

    I noticed in the "first run" video, that the E-flight battery was a "30C" 3S 11.1v battery and was wondering if E-flight makes a higher "C" rating battery myself. I think they do, but haven't seen anyone realistically running them full time or at the 8S level in an X-Maxx; meaning, two 4S batteries.

    Also, I don't think E-flight makes a high mAh battery that is practical for land vehicles, but it would sure be nice if they did because of what your video just showed they can do!
