So once I got a hold of the X Maxx I have been playing with it every chance I got. So far I have broken an upper arm, hub and wheel. I launched it over a hill and slammed it into a rail road tie sideways. That ripped out the entire metal hub and dog bone.

Overall, I am quite happy with the X Maxx. It's a huge truck takes most abuse that I can throw at it. Just like the T Maxx on steroids. It takes a ridiculous amount of abuse and comes away happy as ever.

Pros: It's massive! It will take most abuse that you can throw at it and keeps going. It's water resistant and loves to play in the mud. It will be sure to put a smile on your face anytime you drive it.

Now for the cons. Price. It's an $800 truck and DOES NOT come with batteries. It's another $200 for two 3s 5000mAh packs and a charger. So how you are at $1K which for most of us is quite a lot. My only other real complaint is the price of extra batteries. At $64 per 5000mAh lipo or $115 per 9000mAh lipo, it's a bit pricey to get an extra set.

So today was the 1 year SCORCH anniversary! Was a great day to fly and hang out with friends. It was about 17 members that showed up and had everything from helis to planes to cars and quads. It has been a great year and can not wait to see what happens in the next one.

I also purchased a Traxxas X Maxx and E Revo from someone just north of me. I was looking for the E Revo but the X Maxx was an added benefit. Both have been a blast but the X Maxx is so massive that is widely fun. But it also has some massive drawbacks that most dont see until they have one.
