    Well, the shell took a while longer than anticipated, but came out pretty well I reckon:

    Thanks.
    Took a while.

    Building up 'layers' inside the body now, even if it isn't really going to get hammered like most do - that bit more protection never hurts!

    Must have been removed for some reason.
    Go into YT and search X-Maxx and skateboard park - should show something.
    The wildest was one with 3 X-Maxxes.

    The 'tree bit' made me laugh as well!!
    Could say people with money to burn, but I think they simply got too carried away with a truck they hadn't anticipated could be that wild - it is - great fun, so self control is required in abundance, particularly if you up the power!!

    There are few companies that I genuinely hate but Traxxas is one of them. atom3624s xmaxx is absolutely amazing though. Almost so badass that I hate Traxxas a little less.

    Traxxas brings a lot of new people into this hobby.
    Give them credit for that.
