That should get her screaming man. Oh, hang onto your Traxxas ESC. Shane had an extra Spektrum 160A new in the box that he is selling me. That should be more than enough for the X since it's for the Kraton.

Which ESC and what gearing are you gonna be running ?

I have a Xmaxx with a 1100kv 5687 with MAX6, unsure on gearing though.

Also, when upgrading Xmaxx power systems, are tires an issue ?

TIA

I hate to be the one to tell you. That 1100kv. Will burn up the max6. It's really only rated for 1/8- 1/6 RC's. And on 8s only rated for a 1200kv motor max.. I'm not a fan of hobby wing for these bigger 1/5 RC's..
Soom in on the spec sheet from hobbywing. You see the motor suggested for the max 6... plus the max line was cutting out on guys. During the middle of their bash session. Joe from "ECOcage". On YT has it happen to him while bashing in his back yard.. on video. There's also a few other on YT with the same problem..I would rather spend a few more $$ and go with castle. They are the best out there. Once you get to these monsters of RC's. 1/5 heavy vehicles and super speed runs..

Okay, isn’t a Xmaxx a 1/6th scale ?

Would MAX5 be an okay choice?

I know the XLX2 has more power, but I have lots of those catch on fire recently.


Edit : I think < 1200kv means below 1200kv ?

No the Xmaxx is a 1/5 scale 20lb beast. Haha

XLX2 caught fire?? What were you doing speed runs.what was it in? Was it the first model of XLX2??
If so castle as fixed the firmware with a update that can be downloaded from castle.

And no it's max is a 1200kv. Not below 1200kv..

The max 5 would be your better choice. You really want to look for thr weight capacity and handle of the esc. The XLX2 is good for up to 42lbs... hobbywing doesn't even mention what wright's the esc can handle. That's what it really comes down to. When looking at esc..

It might be better to get a 8mm drive shaft. You will have more options when it come to gears. Can run mod 1 or mod 1.5.. and won't have to worry about the crush drive gear mount. Can use just pinon gears for both spur and pinon. 👍👍

What gearing do you recommend?

I think am gonna try the Max6, if it gets to hot or overload I have other uses for it.
