    New to the X-Maxx & have a few questions.

    Hello,

    I recently bought a 8S X-Maxx and what can I say.. this thing is a beast!

    I have a few questions I'm hoping you guys can help me with.

    #1: Gearing. I'm running 2x5000mah 3S. Is stock gearing at 18/54 decent? I was reading another thread where guys were running 22/46 with 6S but in the manual it says that is a no go? (I'm just bashing around the yard with it)

    #2: What is the best place to shop online for parts in Canada? I'm also not opposed to ordering out of the US, any main go-to sites out there? (Or is it Ebay all the way?)

    Thanks!!

    Thanks for the reply Adam.

    I guess nobody plays with gearing on 6S?

    Try out 18/46 and see how you like it considering you should already have that spur gear. I put in the 46t day one myself, and later upped it to 20/46 for a little more speed. I run 8S in my truck.

    If you are changing the gearing, remove the pins under the motor and set the gear mesh by hand. I shattered a 46t spur while using the pins, but no problems since removing them.
