Like they say "If you didnt break it, it wasnt fun enough". I did break a lower arm and steering knuckle, but its being take cared of by Traxxas. I do recommend this truck to anyone looking for a huge RC Truck.)
Overall, truck is everything I expected. Looks bigger in person and nice and plush with jumps. It's fast but not out-of-control fast. It's rather clumsy around sharp turns and tends to flip on side due to higher center of gravity and speed. Just looks really aggressive and fun to drive. I hope the ESC holds up as this is the major weak point per what I have seen.
Also make sure your 4s batteries fit the compartment dimensions. My 7200mAh from Powerhobby were too big for the plastic hold-down locking part. I have to use velcro straps between the nerf side bars and chassis. Holds the batteries down like a charm.
I only have two cars, this and the Arrma Kraton which is able to take an extreme beating without breaking. My expectations are high on the Xmaxx. So far, so good.
I would buy from Amain again and recommend this truck to anyone who can afford it.)
