Default Got my X-Maxx...roller, time to see what goes next... :P

So...since it came out..i know i had to have one.

Got one from Germany cheap enough...as a 6s roller...so i bought it!

And here it is...

-I had put my Merv next to it to see sizes...


First thing i made to it...as put a "women" behind the wheel...and a 1/5 wing on the body!





I think i will stick to a stock motor...since this motors are 50mm diamenter and 110mm long. It's a TPPOWER motor already.
I don't think i will be using a 1/5 motor on it....

Now problem is i have no idea if going 6s or 5s... i want this to be a durable basher without going nuts, but still got it? For that it needs a Castle ESC. Is the MMX enough, or it will sweat a lot?


And 1200kv motor of the 8s version or 6s 1600kv motor from the 6s version?

Comment's, advices..whatever!
Thanks very much!

The stock motor is pretty good from my experience. For an esc get the hobbywing max6 esc and stick to 6s, 5s isn't enough. Going to 8s and the stock 6s tires aren't long for this world along with the diffs. Past that, enjoy it!

Nah... 8s on this is undrivable and stupid wheelies everysingle punch...not my thing. Could put a wing on front but for bashing it not suits good!

Managable 6s. OK.

HW Max6 and 1600kv stock motor on 6s lipos, there will be!

Castle MMX is not enough man ESC for this, right?

Thanks!

On 8s it's actually not bad with the correct gearing and some better tires.

The MMX might be ok but I prefer the HW stuff and the Max6 has been the go to for most people on the xmaxx plus it gives you some head room later when you go 8s!
