Theoretically a stepped hull will reduce drag and increase efficiency, resulting in more speed. As long as the boat is trimmed correctly.
It does. You can see it in the pre production video from the other thread and in some of the gallery pics.
I like the scale cockpit and it does look very much like he dcb 1:1 boat. The paint is too flashy for my taste, but I'm hoping it will look a lot better in person than in pictures. As far as the...
True.... I hope we can see some more details and a video soon. The mid june release date is not far away.
My only concern would be that the 40"cat hull with the scale interior is probably heavier and longer than the spartan. Thats a pretty big hull for a 36mm diameter motor. well have to wait and see....
Horizon Hobby has an interior shot. looks the same to me.
I found a pic online showing a partial interior shot. Looks like the same esc as the Spartan. I wouldn't be suprised if the electronics were the same.
No secrets, I can always cancel my order if I'm not happy with the electronics. I have at least a month to decide. If it looks awesome then I'll be one of the first in line. So far I like!
I love the scale cockpit. Hopefully it has 1/8 scale electronics. I just preordered.
So what does the esc recognize when you plug in a 5s pack? If the esc thinks it's 6s, then the low voltage cutoff would kick in right away as soon as voltage starts to drop. Or if the esc sees 4s...
I ordered October 31, and mine is just shipping today. They waived UPS 2-day air shipping.
mine too. still shows being"picked and packed in the warehouse". I did see that under shipping, it shows express 2-day shipping, and says "waived". So looks like tower is making an effort to get them...
Looks like part numbers 7715 body mounts front and rear $22, and or part number 7713 body support rear $15
Are you sure?? Anything I've ever gotten from tower has been UPS ground, and they don't deliver on weekends. It would sure be nice if tower would expedite shipping to get them to us by Christmas. I'm...
Tower has to be sitting on those x-max's til tomorrow. theres no way ALL those independent hobby shops got their shipments before tower. They're just saving themselves thousands by waiting a couple...
Cool, new video of the self righting stampede 4x4!
I'm bettin tower is sitting on their stock until Friday. I'm October 31st preorder and they haven't filled my order yet.
I got you guys beat. I preordered from tower on October 31st
Nice jump with a tabletop! Looks like you got an x-maxx workout turning and flipping that truck so many times. Are you sore? Haha! Great job man!
I hope they don't hold on to them til the 18th.
i got some 6200mah 40c. I read on one of the posts that a guy was getting 25 min. on 5000mah packs. Good thing about smaller packs is that you can use them in other rc's. the traxxas 8400 packs more...
If tower ships the x-maxx out before the 17th, those who preordered will also get $72 in E-cash!
Those parts are lookin pretty rusty already
Can someone with an xmaxx check to see if the tire/wheel has a different diameter front to back like the short course trucks? Kinda looks that way from the pics.
