    traxxas x-maxx 8s How many times have you opened the body?

    Yes.

    Have you ever opened the lid of Xmax?? hehe

    Even monster trucks are difficult to drive in places where long grass has grown ㅜㅜ

    If you are talking about the body popping off on a wonky landing or roll over then I'd say that is a common problem. I know a lot of Youtubers complain about it and my uncle (who has 2) has his body pop off on every other roll over.
    The present is theirs; the future, is mine.

    Is there an aftermarket body internal roll cage system that works better.

    It happens enough to be annoying.

    Great video, nice and entertaining. Editing was a nice touch also not to mention a little hip-hop.

    Yes, to answer your question my body pops off all the time, it’s super annoying. I’ve done a little bit of a remedy that helps to keep it on most of the time. But, inevitably my top still goes flying on crazy landings.

    Looks like it’s hard to get some good speed on that bumpy grass for a nice lunch.

    After shoo gooing the cage to the body, and reinforcing the rear and bed area, my body never popped off again...

    Thanks, I've seen videos of the shoe goo and drywall tape before - just not with the cage taped in for extra resistance against the body coming off.

    I'll take a look at your videos later.
