    X Maxx questions

    Hey guys as you know I recently got an X maxx and itís so much fun! I do have some questions though

    1. How do I strengthen the body
    2. After a bad rollover I seemed to have bent the center driveshaft a little can I still use it like this
    3. Should I put the body over the side guards or behind the side gaurds

    Thanks for any help

    I just did my first run on my 4Pede new body.

    I reinforced it with fiberglass tape and Clear Flex Seal.

    It was an impulse buy. In hindsite I would have used another color.

    Looks tough though.

    I used Gorilla tape to reinforce my Maxís body. The cracks on the tailgate will need something more. Hmmmm, had some 3M ohvehicle wrap around here. Wonder how that would work.

    Drywall fiber tape and shoegoo or e6000 for the body. I found it easiest to put down the tape then glue over the top. Latex gloves to help keep glue off hands,. Otherwise peeling it off for a few days.

    After my body got toast even after the glue fix I went to a different body. Can pm me for info.. as can't talk about it in here.

    There is a body resistrctor mod that seems to help those that bash hard and keeping stock body. Prevents tailgate area from flexing down over rear shock towers. Best to do with a new body.


    And probably replace center driveline like other says unless you can gently bend it back well enough to work again. But probably best to get a replacement for when it fails again.

    Hi mate, in my case, I use duck tape to reinforce the body shell.

    The center driveshaft needs to be replaced, it's a very high precision thing and can't use if it's bent.

    The body shell will be put inside the side nerf guards.
