    What did you do with your MAXX today ?

    Good Day Traxxas fans

    Received the Maxx yesterday
    Unboxed it
    Applied E6000 to the wheel vent holes
    (to prevent anything from getting in)
    set endpoint adjustments
    grabbed a charged 3S pack and achieved a big smile

    just do it
    : )
    Get out there and play

    I blew the foam out through the tread of a tire.
    That water finds its way in so easily...

    Tested it for the first time and found out 3s after a minute is slow training mode. But this truck seems tough!

    From the moment I saw the max on display three weeks before I could buy it , I said it looks like a very fast beach ball , top heavy and to narrow , but to my surprise Traxxas has for the first time , addressed a problem head on with the wide kits !!!! EEEEEYYYAAAAAEEEEEE !!!! I PUT THIS STUFF ON and finnaly I've got something that can stand up to the king of my 30 vehical hill , the Arrma Kraton , MAXX will be a good match for it , great work Traxxas , finnaly !!!

    Telling you guys , get the wide kit , the new metal axles , and now you have what should be called the MAXX , makes this truck 3 times the truck than out of the box , also a fan update is looking nessasary , but I will build this thing to the moon loves this truck now , was not happy with the beach ball it was without the wide kit , you gotta do it believe me it's tottaly worth it

    Ran 6 or more packs through it today. Sent it flying a few times of the ramps. Holes are starting in the front of the body where the shock tower is, and may have broken a other fan. This maxx has taken a beating and nothing but a fan broken. Also saw maxx wack a wall at about 30 needs a new bulk head, but handed it well.

    The Maxx was complaining how all his online buddies get to go to the skate park and he doesn't, so after buckling him into the car, I drove him to the skate park. Next door is a construction area (dirt mound). First he played on the skate park and even tried the ramps. He did really good at the small table top .. not so good on the quarter pipes though after awhile, he would go up the quarter on a right angle, turn right at the top, get a little air and then land on the base of the quarter. He really liked the table top. Left there and played in the construction area, got a little muddy in the frozen tundra wasteland (where the mud came from is beyond me) and then tried to get back in the car.

    When we got home, he then proceeded to show the mud to his siblings.

    I just bought mine today from my local HobbyTown. The great news is that they have had a hard time selling any Maxx trucks so they had it at a huge discount. Only paid $400 for the truck and $170 for the live peak charger and 5000mAh 4s battery. Total cost of $590 after tax.

    update.....

    After running multiple 4S packs, I am pleased as punch with the setup ! I was shocked at the handling difference, I wasn't terribly unhappy with the stock setup after tuning the shocks and was used to mitigating the throttle on turns.Now I have to adjust to being able to lay on it a bit more, crazy what a few millimeters can do.

    I like the atv body. It would look realistic with a rider on it if you happen to come across one. I had to look twice as I thought it was a ride-on toy.
    Where did you find or what is that body for?

    Cool "Xmaxx" Evil

    Quad body is maybe 2005 proline - discontinued

    found out that the "Maxx" plastic bushings installed on the wheelie bar wheels
    had started to fail - need 10x15x4mm bearings to fix X 4

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-511...ss!92376!US!-1

    #1 Maxx - added a ring of solder around the servo saver spring retainer for stronger servo saver action :/
    going to order aluminum steering assembly
    waiting on plastic servo gear rebuild on #2 Maxx - no metal gears available ?

    Thanks. It fits the body well. I was hoping it wasn't the Proline or Hpi bodies. I never grabbed one way back when for my Revo.

    Ran it again a few days ago. Let me tell you, I've taken my 3 Arrma bashers, two KAIJUs and the xmaxx 8s out about 5 times, and the Maxx and Xmaxx have survived with zero breakages, except for the bodies. I was hesitant to spend $750 for the Maxx with the widemaxx kit and steel CVDS, but it's super durable.
