Yea, I wrecked my X-Maxx too. Do you know where? It was by the tree's, you know, near the grass by the road on the hill near the barn. Come on, you know where that is...where the sky is blue and wind blows sometimes.

My point? Without details, why ask a question if nobody can give you a good answer?

im not really even sure if your asking us if arrma techno and proline chassis are the same or you are telling us this
and what about the chassis? and what chassis in particular are you talking about because there are more then just one...

NO the XMaxx is NOT a Monster Truck. Wrong chassis and suspension.

Next question?

Now that's a tough one. Depends on how pure you want to use the name.

I 100% agree. MT is a huge family and really can be anything in the 1:1 or RC world. Heck by some definitions you could put a MT body and big tires on a Traxxas 4atec touring car and it would be a MT to some.

I was just jabbing the OP but I still don't think the XMaxx is a MT.

Anyway, what is the OP asking/implying/stating??? Proline MT is smaller than the MT410 etc. etc. is he trying to compare Apples to Oranges? But then again without pics...

Xmaxx is a monster truck, but if it is "good" is another question. The 8s still borrows features from truggys and buggys such as center differential and independent suspension. Even the wheel base is longer on the Xmaxx.

Don't mean anything by saying experts,i was reading the proline post about the new 4x4. Saying most of these RC trucks an truggy chassis and drive trains all look interchangable.all good on 2s, 6s tears them all up 1/8 scale an larger.

I think heís trying to address some of the hate that Traxxas, and the Xmaxx get from forum members. Since the talion is praised a lot on here and on other forums, heís saying itís unoriginal, comparing it to the proline, arrma, and tekno chassis. which is odd because the proline is 10th scale and not too similar to teknos and arrmas 8th scales. And also saying it isnít better than the xmaxx, which it is in basically every way.
