Picked up a like new Arrma Felony for $600 with 2 sets of new tires, the extra body parts for the hood, and the optional pinion that comes with the kit. Original tires still look like theyre in really good shape. The original owner said after the 3rd run the ESC and RX stopped working and Horizon replaced them under warranty. He gave me th eold non-working electronics, gonna send it in to Horizon and see if I can get the repaired for a reasonable cost.

Shoulda been more like $550 I got this for. Does anyone else feel like its messed up that you have to pay tax on purchasing used items on ebay? New items or items from sellers with business accounts, ok maybe that I understand but on used items it just gets me steamed....Oh well. 🤷‍♂️

Today I bought a Coping saw, set of files, and a buffing wheel set for another hobby.

Some new kit... 🔧

Somebody's life just got a whole lot better! Don't know what I'd do without my M12 driver... a whole lot less wrenching, that's for sure!

Ordered some high strength straps for the battery mount in my maxx. Couldn't find the length I wanted, so got the longest of this type I could get on amazon and used two:

Also ordered 25,26,27 toot pinions for it. Wanted the 25T, so will see how that goes. It's thinner than the stock pinion, so it doesn't fully engage the teeth, hoping it holds up:

Also got CVD's for the maxx. 5 packs in and I broke a rear yoke. Instead of spending $20 on one plastic axle, figured it was worth the $ to spend $100 on 4 steel ones:

After a hard outing last weekend with the maxx... it's going to get a looooot of wheel time. Really like it!

Wait... Is the driver made by MIP too or is that just a sticker you threw on it? Either way it looks like a nice tool. I'm going to be sad when my Ryobi Tek4 gives up the ghost.

It's just the baby maxx. :)

Would have been nice if traxxas made one similar in size to the e-revo 2.0 and made it a proper 6S maxx that wasn't gargantuan sized like the x-maxx. I'd Have bought one a long time ago if that was the case. As it is, this has almost the exact same wheel base as my outcast 6S, but has a narrower track and weighs quite a bit less.

I swore up and down Id never buy minis or micros again but the wife wanted a Losi Mini-B so I wasted the money to buy her one and on the off chance she actually does play with it...remains to be seen lol....I bought myself a Mini-T 2.0. Got a bunch of batteries with the Mini-T, and I bought an adjustable motor plate for the mini-t so I can eventually put a brushless sytem in it and some upgraded servos for both kits. Also bought a 3D printed gear protector for running without the gear cover on and I bought several Liperior LiPos as well.
