    Ready to bash!

    Prepped my new X-Maxx 8s v2 for some snow bashing tomorrow:
    - RPM front/rear axle carriers w/oversized inner bearing (yes, I added grease)
    - Filled the diffs since from factory since they weren't full (10k/20m/30k)
    - RPM roof skid plate
    - Drywall fiberglass tape and flex seal the body
    - JConcepts chassis cover
    - Aluminum servo horn
    - Aluminum steering linkage tie rod
    - RPM front bumper mount
    - RPM rear bumper mount
    - ProTek 370TBL "Black Label" Waterproof steering servo
    - Hot glued the holes in the rims
    - 2x Gens Ace 4s 8500mah 50c lipos

    Ready for some bashing!

    Itís the climb of shame on snow hills.

    I drove off a 3 foot straight drop and broke something in the drive train 10 minutes later. Havenít pulled it apart to see what broke yet.

    It was fun though.

    Nice! The cold temps make all the plastic brittle/weak and prone to premature breakage.

    Do you have to check the diffs from the factory, or is there likely to be enough in them to be OK?

    And what are the stock fluids in them?

    Cool, thanks. I'd hope so.

    Do people tend to leave the oils stock or change them out for whatever reason?

    I think it depends on the truck use, more faster runs or hard bashing.
