    That's how our dog gets some good exercise.. Had her out chasing my Clod last weekend in the yard. Then my Son's Redcat on 2S and she could almost keep up with it.

    Sweet! Dogs just can't get enough of chasing RC's around.
    I kind of limit our dog nowadays as she's starting to get older and I don't want her over doing it!

    Silly X-Maxx...
    Haha, just kidding! Those things are BEAST.

    Understand that! Ours is only 3 and she has tons of energy. I don't dare bring out the Arrmas as they are quite a bit heavier, and if I run into her with them it might break something... On her, not the truck.

    Nice collection you've got there!!

    I've been looking into thinning out my RC garage a bit to pick up either a XMaxx or DBXL-E. I realize they are different platforms but having both, which one would you pick up knowing what you know after owning them?

    That's a tough one. The Losi is a beast. It is a little tank and it's a lot of fun. I got it recently, so its only got one run under it's belt. My gut reaction to your question was X-Maxx, because it is much lighter and therefore better for flips/jumps in my opinion and experience. Parts, when needed, will be easier to obtain as well. I absolutely love them both though.

    Yeah, I'm still leaning towards the XMAXX, the release of the DBXL-E was just enticing enough to make me think about which to pick up. I've been wanting an XMAXX since they were first released, just been holding off until all the issues were sorted out with it. Looks like the 8s versions have been holding up well. I was wondering about the weight of the DBXL-E and the ESC they included, seems a bit undersized for the application.

    Thanks for your opinion, appreciated.

    Actually, I really like it a lot. It flies very well and the TX is nice, too. Only drawbacks are the jeweler's hardware making repairs are a real bitch. Especially if you have a short fuse like me. eg. Spend 25 minutes or more, trying to find 1 screw that fell on the floor. Yet the repair itself should have taken all of 5 minutes. To get to most stuff you'll have to take out a whole bunch of jeweler-sized screws first. I have two others that need fixes, but I've been too busy driving my Typhon, lol. If you get one, make sure to always land very gently. The main gear and tail "cone" gears are all plastic, so any impact, even a hard landing, will most likely strip some or all the gears. Also, plan to replace the stock (plastic gear) swash servos with metal geared ones (WK 7.6.9) from the Master CP.
    If you have the loot, buy a new one!

    Right on. I have a devo F-12E gave my devo7 to my buddy so I'll probably use the f12 unless I can put an f3 or f4 flight controller and use my flysky i6x. Nice little collection there.

    What do you think about your Xmaxx? How does it compare to the quality of Arrma, and durability?

    Also curious how you like your Xmaxx. I have a Kraton and Typhon and love, love, love both. Thinking to get the big boy but I find Traxxas MT's seem to like to flip and wheelie too much. Thoughts?

    Well mine is far from stock, I upgraded it to a Castle 2028 and Max 5 ESC and yes, it is a wheelie monster. I adjusted the punch in the settings so it does not flip onto it's roof on launch and it is a blast to bash with. It has proven very durable. I have only broken a shock shaft. Outcast is my favorite to bash with though.
