    X-maxx crash

    Hey guy I was out with my X-maxx when I hit a tree head on going 40 mph it seems fine (very impressed) is there anything I should check for?

    How’s the tree?

    It is amazing what the Xmaxx can take. I smacked a basketball size rock in my driveway and only cracked a rear hub carrier.

    My old E-Revo was sturdy also but as I put more alloy stuff on it became less durable. A bit of “plastic” give is good I guess.

    Remove the center cover and spin the wheels
    If the center shaft is bent - replace

    The tree has a huge chunk taken out of it but otherwise fine

    I would check for bent driveshaft, cracked shock tower or bulkhead.

    I agree with the comments on the bulkhead. Check your bumper support too.
