So i was durability testing this two piece center driveshaft conversion – and this happened so the rear, bulkhead, completely exploded and it’s so bad that even the diff came out. That was awful. I see it’s getting it now. Oh no! Look it’s different! There look so in this video we’re gon na fix it spruce it all up a little bit paint up a new body for it and then take it out for a rip. We’Ve also got these new lipos here from banggood that we’re gon na try out. Oh no just found more damage, but no big deal. We have spares oh look down here, there’s more stuff. We got ta fix here’s.

So you don’t miss any future videos, because we’ve got plenty of cool stuff coming up soon. I finally ordered all the parts to finish this monster truck and it’s, going to weigh around about five tons and do naughty sixty in around four seconds, which, for something that size is pretty amazing, it’s getting tires that are, like 66 inches tall 1500 horse engine going In there, 30 inch travel shocks on there and the chevy c10 body, so it’s gon na look a little bit like this and yeah we’re gon na paint it in our legendary red.
So this is the same chassis that the gravedigger team uses and i’ve never built a monster truck before i haven’t got a clue what i’m doing, but hopefully together we can figure it out and then i’m also hoping to move out of this workshop. Hopefully, in the next few months, i’m looking for a new house with a better land and a workshop on site, so we can build rc tracks in the garden and all that kind of stuff, but guys i’m looking every single day and something perfect has got to Come up so as soon as something comes up guys we’re going to go and have a look at it and then we’re going to supercharge the lambo. So yeah subscribe and smash the bell. So you don’t miss any of it and we’ve got helicopters to fly. We’Ve got helicopters to build anyway enough waffle, let’s start wrenching. Oh dear! Look at that damage! Oh no, that one’s rounded off in there look! No when in doubt give it a clout. Look at that guys so far that center drive shaft is still perfectly straight. This has got to be one of my favorite x, max modifications, guys if you want to know we can get all the upgrades from on this car and we can get the car from there’s gon na be a link to all of that down below. So, for now we can put this to one side. We can now focus on this lot.
Ah, i was hoping for this reaction. Oh no, not a rounder! Oh yes, we got it. So a lot of you guys always ask about these power tool tips. Well, the ones that i use are these ones here. If you want to know, we can get them from there’s going to be a link down below and these ones here are my favorite hand, tools there’s, going to be link to these down below too and when doing screws up with these it’s always best to do Them up most of the way, then do the last little bit up by hand. Otherwise you run the risk of stripping out all your threads beautiful. I see a lot of people on the internet. Often ask about this little bit of play that you have on the spur gear. It really doesn’t matter guys doesn’t affect it at all. So a few of you guys in a couple of videos ago, you said that my x max doesn’t seem to be as fast as it used to be there’s a couple of reasons for that one of them is i put on a small opinion gear. I did run this on a 19 tooth at one point, and in the summer it does get a little bit too hot, so i’ll geared it down. Also, i was running it on these power hobby wheels here and the stock one’s a little bit smaller. So because i ran it again on the stock tyres that slowed the truck down a little bit so we’re gon na chuck on the 19 tooth pinion again and hopefully he’s gon na wake it up and make it a little bit faster, that’s worth noting guys a Lot of you guys ask me what gearing i run.
I normally run in between a 17 18 and a 19 tooth pinion and a 50 tooth spur gear, but i’m running a 1600 kv motor out of a 6s x max and running it on a test, because the 1600 kv gives it a little bit more rpm And a little bit more top speed if you run this gearing on a stock x, max a test motor it’s going to be a little bit on the slow side. So we’re going to be running this on a 1950. So we need to put the pin into slot c i’ll. Tell you what guys i really love the x max motor mount system. You’Ve got the four screws on the bottom. You’Ve got the pin system. It means you haven’t got to set any mesh. You just put the pins in the right slot put the motor in and all your mesh is set. Also, if you look at the x max motors, they’re supported on both ends, and the good thing with that is, is that when you’re doing jumps, you’re landing, really big air and the motor is slamming down onto the floor, it’s supported on both sides. A lot of the other cars that the motor is only supported on one end, you end up ripping the motor off to motor smashing into the chassis bending the motor, destroying the motor and causing a whole load of other problems. This is the best motor mount that i’ve ever seen in an rc car and um.
I didn’t put it in properly, so we got to take it out again, that’s, better look sitting in that groove. Now a lot of people complain about these pinions coming off on x, max’s you’ve got to use some really strong thread lock. I use this loctite 270. This is actually stud, lock and it’s supposed to be permanent. I mean you can get it off again. Just go apply a little bit of heat and it will come off again, but i definitely put quite a lot of this on there because i do not want this to come off once you’re out on the field bashing, and the other thing is if this does Start coming off, what happens is is that you ruined a flat spot on the motor and then once that happens, it’s going to come off all the time and the great thing about these tools here, look they’ve got slots in there, so you can put in another Wrench and you can really tighten stuff up really tightly beautiful and the good thing with his x max’s guys is that all the parts that are most likely to break are really cheap. Next, we can put the diff back in, and i like to use this waterproof marine grease and the idea of that is if water gets in there, the water doesn’t really mix in with degrees as much as normal grease would uh. Oh just noticed a little bit more damage subscribe.
Uh oh got bent shock shaft in that one, oh yeah, that is really tight. Maybe not a bench shock. Shaft, though, might be something else going on in there. Ah, so the shock shaft looks perfect, so i can only assume that either the body’s bent or something’s up with a piston, please piston guys, no idea what happened to that. Maybe it’s got a crack in it. That is very strange because it looks fine, but obviously it isn’t i’ve got a brand new one here. So shafting look at that perfectly smooth next washer then piston. Oh yes, that slides down there lovely and lastly nuttage. Oh look at that moves lovely. It probably would have been easier if we’re taking the bottom off, but oh well, it’s done now shock hole back in. I know some of you guys are going to be cringing and crying i’m, putting the old chocolate back in, but guys chill it’s just a toy and you’re not sitting in it, and then we can go ahead and top it up just to get up to the Top, i know some of the races out there going to be cringing, but i don’t care it’s, my toy, and i can do with it. What i want oh hold on beautiful, beautiful, so here’s, all the parts that we broke in that last bashing, so the complete rear, bulkhead rear shock tower steering plate this little piece here that goes underneath the bulkhead and a shock piston guys it’s, probably around about 30 Or 40 dollars, maybe to replace all that so for whole day out fun.
I don’t think that’s too bad. I maybe break about two of these. A year it’s no big deal it’s a little bit of work, fitting it on, but guys this is my favorite all time basher and if you haven’t got one, you should definitely get one. So next let’s paint up the body shell, so this body here is the pro line: raptor i’m, going to put a link to this body down below. If you want to know where we can get it from so next we’re going to stick on the window, masks then we’re going to rough up the paint surface and the paint’s got somewhere to stick to then we’re going to degrease it and then we’re going to Paint it red and once the red’s dried we’re going to go over the top of it with some white that’s, going to make the red pop more so here’s a body that we backed with black and it makes it a bit duller. And then, if you look at this one here, we backed it with white, it just makes that red pop a lot better. Oh guys, this is going to look epic waffle, waffle waffle get this one it’s going to look a lot shy in here. It’S got this plastic film on there. We’Ve got to peel that off, but we’re going to do that last. So next we’re going to stick on some drywall tape and some shoe goo to the inside of the body, shell, and what that does is makes the body last probably about 10 times longer.
I’Ve done it to that that that that anyway, let’s get it on and then you’ll see. Oh, oh! So next we need to get a little bit of protection on there. So i’ve got this rear boot lip whatever you want to call it to put on. There trouble is this: one here is made for the stock body, so we got ta have to cut it out a little bit. Also i’ve got these rpm roof bars here to protect the roof. A little bit and don’t forget guys a link to everything in this build is down below check it out guys that looks absolutely epic, so i now run these ic5 connectors and these lipos comes with xt60, so we’ve got to change them over then. This plastic part here has got a habit of breaking when you’re landing hard jump, sometimes so we’re just gon na put a bit heat shrink over the top of that, and hopefully that is gon na protect it boom. All right, let’s take it for a rip. Oh, we got snow but that won’t stop us. What the hell is. This, oh look. We are clearly in the house. Uh claire’s got mini max on the go footage wow on the face. How did that land did? Is williams? Toys look got his crayon he’s savage yeah, minnie, mac, backup bash will win this one bro where’s the x maxx that’s at home. Oh no, my new body, oh look guys! I didn’t fully do it.
I ran out of sugar and didn’t actually do it at all. Oh no, oh dear there we go just fixed it up. Just put a lot more sugar on there put a bit more drywall tape on there prepared to crack. It’S not perfect, but it’s gon na make their body see another day and guys these x maxxes are just so epic. I mean everyone that loves rc cars and loves bashing should definitely have an x max in their arsenal. I’M gon na put a link down below.
