    Boots

    I am an xmaxx driver since day 1 available::::The other day I was looking online for xmaxx parts an came across some axle boots for xmaxx.1st time I have seen these home made boots.can some one check these out an weight in on these. Haven't heard anyone talking about axle boots for xmaxx.many other traxxas trucks have such,why not xmaxx.drive cups could be lubed,which might slow down wear. Drive cup wear is only thing that is seriously wrong with xmaxx.

    No drive cup wear if you buy gpm drive cups they’re hardened steel and extra beefy on the outside

    Just looked them up. They look interesting for sure. If they sealed like an automotive cv boot I don't see why they couldn't help. But if they acted like a catch for dirt they would actually speed up the wear. They real question is how well they seal. If you packed in grease and they allowed a lot of dirt in, is it worth the extra maintenance?

    Also they seem kind of pricey for some rubber covers and securing rings.
    I’d expect 10$ for a complete set?

    I like the idea too. My experience isn’t good with boots installed on “other” RC’s.
