    I thought these look kinda cool! You can choose different patterns/options too...

    I like the one in the video you linked that had the big "X" logo but unfortunately the other link you supplied does not allow the selection of that type.

    Also, ten bucks for a piece of plastic that size is tough to swallow considering the drive cups for our X-Maxx are twelve bucks a piece.

    I didn't see how well they secure to the latch either. It seems like you just press them on and hope they don't get lost in a crash.

    Now that I looked at it closer, it actually does use the preexisting mounting screw to replace the stock latch.

    Plus I found a link for the "X" logo ones.

    I think it's a cool idea. If a person got one, though, they'd want to make sure to took some of their "X'" decals off. (IMO) it would look kind of silly having a bunch of "X's" all over the place. (lol)
    Life's to short to be a sour puss.

    Well I guess I choked on that $10 latch knob that I said was hard to swallow at that price!

    Thanks!

    And Thank You for sharing the links in the first place. I never would have found them looking for things the way I do for the X-Maxx!
