Am. 80 packs through this beast and i must say, i’m loving this truck it’s. Definitely one of my favorites um it’s. Definitely in the top five but uh yeah 80 packs through it uh i haven’t, been, did a lot of hardcore bashing with it mainly just jumping, like my ramps in the uh, the horse paddock area, where i run my my cars uh, but you know it’s, taking A pretty good beating this originally was the orange body and actually destroyed that body, because i jumped it so much and you know bashed it up, but um besides the body, my original body seems to always want to bend right here at this spot. The spot here seems to be the spot. It always wants to bend over and break uh it’s going out on this new one as well, and mainly my orange ones, all broke up back here so i’m going to see if i can’t repair that let’s see the first 10 packs i put through this truck. Was uh on 6s and i was pretty happy with the power on 6s. Fapt, so i didn’t i didn’t go to 8s to after 10 packs and then once i went to 8s, Nu, no going back to 6s after 8s. Thing was amazing on 8s and i stuck with it. Um let’s see the first issue i had with it was at around. cred, around 30 packs, my stock esc went bad. The bxl, uh esc went bad on it um.
I heard bad things about it anyway and i kind of figured it was going to go out so um pulled that out and got a hobby wing uh max 5 max 6. Uh. Da, it was a max 6. um so put that in it fit perfectly in the xmaxx love. It love the way it fit right in there perfectly and i used um pretty dirty so yeah. I got the the hobby wing max 6 and i installed the rc pro plus connectors um. I love those connectors. I use one i have on my rc helicopters, but it’s a perfect fit for that esc, love it um, așa că da. I have about 50 packs on the hobby wing max 6 and it’s been running flawless and run perfect at that esc, așa că eu sunt, very happy with that that choice um as far as things that have broken on it in 80 packs. Surprisingly, not much um. My tires. I’D replace all my tires after it was between 30 Şi 40 packs. They all started. The foams and stuff inside started crumbling up into little pieces and they just started getting off balance. I don’t know if that’s a common thing with these x maxes, but the foams inside broke apart and started, throwing the tire off balance. So i replaced all four um and it’s been running good. Ever since uh it may have been just a bad set. I got but yeah it was a little strange.
I even made a video. I tore them open to see what was going on and yeah in the video you can see the little pieces falling out. Um bearings bearings blew a lot of bearings wheel, bearings uh, the the hub seat, hub, bearings, Um, yeah that’s, mainly all i blew with the bearings um a baroque. I think the front bumper i just broke it again. Recently, uh you’ll see that i got to replace that. I think i broke that a couple times because i hit sometimes i hit pretty hard rate like that um. I think i did break an a arm. Is it an arm? I broke see it’s been so long since i broke anything uh. I should have prepared myself for this video and made a list of things but i’m going off off the top of my head, um yeah. I think i broke an a arm. I think it was one of the hubs. Your thing was one of the sea hugs that i broke uh, but not much as far as breaking parts. Nwo, after about 50 pentru a 60 packs, after about 50 pentru a 60 packs, my steering servo went out uh the stock steering servo. I was going to get like a high quality win, but i was like oh it’s, a little pricey. Even the stock survey was pretty pricey. I think it was 50 bucks for the stock steering servo the traxxas one, so i went ahead and bought another one.
Put that in so it’s been running good, since i put that in um what else, after that, about a little bit over 60 packs, my traxxas receiver went bad. The tms receiver went bad brought it in started, troubleshooting everything thinking it wasn’t a receiver because i usually don’t have receiver issues with rc cars. Not too often so i started troubleshooting that and yeah. I took the old receiver out, put a new one in and and fired right up. Everything worked perfect, so receiver went bad um. What else? Not much else guys man it’s been an amazing truck. I haven’t had any transmission issues with it. No gearing issues, no opinions, never just opinion ever slept on it came loose. I don’t think so. I only think my opinions ever came loose on it. Um everything’s working just awesome on this truck let’s see. Let me look it over real quick. I think i think i did yeah. I think i did break the rear. This rear part too. De asemenea, this rear bumper collect part deflexes. I broke one of those that’s just normal stuff. You know you break, but this thing’s really taking a pounding man it’s pretty impressive it’s, a pretty impressive truck man. I must say: traxxas. Did it right on this? One definitely did it right. Um, 80 packs things still running. Like a champ, Ca, am spus, traxxas electronics, not a big one, to traxxas electronics, uh i’ve had issues with a lot of my rc’s with the traxxas electronics um.
Like i said, my esc went my steering server went my receiver went. Hopefully my motor won’t go. Hopefully, that holds up um. ştii, besides, that amazing be nice as they sold this as a roller, so you can just edge her in electronics, that’d be pretty sweet um. What else Applause i don’t know guys not much else man. The thing handles amazing. I love it, uh jumps, it jumps, awesome uh, it turns so tight. It turns so sharp at full power and the suspension just eats up them. Turns man. When you turn instead of rolling it just eats up them turns man. The setup is awesome on it. Este., a great truck uh i do want to get some. Probably i might get some pro line, some bad lands or something for it. Uh the mx badlands i don’t know what to say guys. I’M very happy with this truck i’m, not a traxxas fan boy at all. I just i love this truck um. I do want to get the led light kit for it as well. Probably get that soon um. I really don’t want to there’s nothing. I want to upgrade on this honestly everything works great tires. I want to upgrade. I already upgrade the esc, maybe a servo. If i have another servo go out, i might get a high quality one in there. I think the motor will be fine. I’M happy with it 8s, just loving it i’m running these uh.
I just got done running it that’s. Why it’s still plugged in running these hrb 5000 milliampere packs they’ve been running great on it um just an awesome truck guys. I don’t know what else to say: Uh, i don’t think i miss anything bearings a lot of bearings blue on it, which is normal i’m running mine in real loamy dirt, very dusty dirt, so bearings are definitely getting destroyed and you know sometimes you land pretty bad. On like this, and surprisingly, the things don’t break it’s, pretty impressive, pretty impressive truck, so i definitely wanted to give a review because i have 80 80 packs through this and it’s it’s awesome, am spus, electronică, not so awesome, the truck awesome. So i know it wasn’t the best review guys. I went off the top of my head and tried to think of everything. I need to start writing stuff down before i do the uh reviews, but uh i seen it sitting there i was like you know. I don’t do a review on the traxxas x max it’s, an awesome truck 80 packs through it soon to be a hundred. So anyway, guys hope you enjoyed that review uh. Please leave a thumbs up, because my channel is dying because uh youtube disabled. My comments it’s been a couple years since youtube disabled my comments and ever since they disabled my comments because of the reason they did. That was because my daughters were in a lot of my older videos and they had that whole thing with the uh underage minors.
On youtube, videos and people, commenting on the comments section, perverted stuff and advertisers got pissed off and pulled out and youtube had to do something about it, so they disabled, like millions of channels with that featured miners in their channels. I mean i have like 350 videos on the channel and my daughters are probably in 30, Poate 40 and they disabled my entire channel because of it um so but yeah they were right, but i the comments section was pretty pretty shitty. I got some pretty nasty comments on the videos my daughters were in, but i took care of them myself, so i don’t know why my channel was uh disabled with the comments because i always went and deleted all the perverted comments so thumbs up check out my Podcast uh, i do have a podcast i’ve been doing for a couple years. I just get on there and talk about rc talk about what i’ve been up to for for the month. I usually bring out one episode a month, uh so it’s on podbean itunes, uh everywhere it’s on like six different uh providers um.
