Owning a Traxxas X-Maxx makes you one of the luckiest RC car owners. You have the best, the strongest, and most durable RC monster truck produced. Traxxas designed the X-Maxx to be the strongest of all RC trucks, but the body parts can be upgraded like all Traxxas RC cars.
If you want to make your Traxxas X-Maxx body stronger, purchase and install these accessories, Pro-Line Pre-Cut Brute Bash Armor Body, PRO-Hubs Hub Carrier Set, PRO-Armor Front Bumper with 4″ LED Light Bar, PRO-Arms Upper & Lower Arm Kit, and Pro-Line Trencher 4.3″ Pro-Loc All Terrain Mounted Tires.
A Traxxas X-Maxx is durable and can run across terrains that other RC monster trucks cannot move through. An X-Maxx is also designed to withstand pressure and force more than any other monster truck. However, when you upgrade the body of the X-Maxx, you can imagine how strong it will become.
Accessories To Make A Traxxas X-Maxx Body Stronger
The X-Maxx is designed to be the strongest RC monster truck, but it has a limit to its strength; but when you upgrade the parts, the X-Maxx becomes a real monster truck because it now has double the strength and durability it had. There are some accessories available for increasing the strength of an X-Maxx.
Pro-Line Brute Bash Armor Body
This armor body was designed specifically for the X-Maxx, and it is twice the thickness of the regular X-Maxx body. The Bash Armor Body features a new material, the Pro-Line Armor material, and this makes it the most dependable, durable, and strong body part for the X-Maxx.
The cost of the Pro-Line Brute Bash Armor Body is $137, and it has a length of 27.75 inches, a width of 10.8 inches, a wheelbase of 18.9 inches, and a height of 7.5 inches. The Bash Armor Body is very flexible, so it cannot crack or shatter. If an X-Maxx with a Bash Armor Body topples over during a run, it will neither break nor crack, and you might notice a little scratch.
The material of the Bash Armor Body is white, so you cannot paint it, and it features a window graphic and fender to complement the look. The Bash Armor Body is streamlined, making it a beautiful sight to behold. The Bash Armor Body is designed to work with the X-Maxx body mount and cage system, although you can purchase a new one separately.
PRO-Arms Upper & Lower Arms
The PRO-Arms Upper & Lower Arms and the PRO-Hubs Hub are the perfect combinations for any X-Maxx. You cannot improve the strength of your X-Maxx body without making improvements to the suspension arms. The PRO-Arms Upper & Lower Arm are rigid and extremely durable due to the innovative stiffening plates and Black arms used to design them.
The color of the Arm plates is Stone Gray, and they can be painted to match the color of your monster truck. The Arm plates are held by several flat head screws. Included in the PRO-Arms Upper & Lower Arm Kit are an Upper Right Arm, a Lower Right Arm, an Upper Left Arm, and a Lower Left Arm.
You will also find forty-four pieces of FHCS screw hardware, fourteen pieces of BHCS screw hardware, two pieces of set screw hardware, and stone gray plates for the upper and lower arms. Purchasing this arm kit guarantees you a rigid and durable suspension arm.
PRO-Hubs Hub Carrier Set
Another accessory that improves the strength of the body of your Traxxas X-Maxx is the PRO-Hubs Hub Carrier Set. This carrier set is designed to harness the power from the Traxxas X-Maxx motor system perfectly so that it will improve the performance of your monster truck.
The PRO-Hubs Hub Carrier Set is designed to be beefy, and it comes with an oversized ball bearing that can handle more load than the small stock bearings that come with the X-Maxx. The inner diameter of the ball bearing is 20 millimeters, the outer diameter is 32 millimeters, and the width is 7 millimeters.
The PRO-Hubs Hub is manufactured from black nylon material, and it is very durable. The deep ribs molded into the Right and Left PRO-Hubs are also very durable. These features make this hub a good replacement for the X-Maxx hub. The PRO-Hubs Hub Carrier Set includes two pieces of the Left and Right Rear Hubs and two ball bearings.
PRO-Armor Front Bumper
If you want a front bumper that can achieve an unrivaled level of scale appearance, functionality, and performance, you should purchase the Front Bumper produced by PRO-Armor. An added feature of this unique bumper is the detachable 4 inches LED light—the perfect front bumper for the biggest, strongest, and most powerful RC monster truck.
This Front Bumper provides an extra line of impact defense better than the normal X-Maxx bumper. This feature makes it a better replacement for the Traxxas X-Maxx bumper. The cost of the PRO-Armor Front Bumper is $65, and it comes with a bar-hole cover for the light.
The cover is there in case you do not want to use the lights. All you need to do is remove the LED light by unscrewing it from the bumper and installing the light bar-hole cover. Although, you would find the LED light useful when the sun begins to set and you are still operating your truck.
Pro-Line Trencher 4.3″ Pro-Loc All Terrain Mounted Tires
If the body of your Traxxas X-Maxx is strong and you do not have a good set of tires, you will not have a great time operating the monster truck. The Pro-Loc tires are designed to move across any terrain, whether sand, grass, snow, gravel, loose dirt or hard-packed dirt; these tires are fit for the task.
There is an impressive feature that allows you to change the foams or tires without fear of the tires coming out of the bead. The Pro-Loc tires are designed to be taller and wider than the usual X-Maxx tires, giving them a more aggressive look and increased performance.
How To Reinforce The Body Of A Traxxas X-Maxx
There is another option for people who do not want to spend a lot of money purchasing new accessories to upgrade their Traxxas X-Maxx strength. You can reinforce the body parts. Reinforcing the body part is making the body stronger without replacing it.
To reinforce your X-Maxx, you would need sheetrock tape, silicone, and a silicone gun. The first thing to do is to disassemble the truck, remove the body of the truck. Next, line the underside of the body with the sheetrock tape; after lining the underpart of the body, use the silicone to fill the underside of the truck and leave it to dry.
The sheetrock tape and the silicone make the X-Maxx body stronger. To test the truck's strength, listen to the sound it makes when you hit the truck's body before and after reinforcing it. You will notice the intensity and durability of the truck after applying the sheetrock tape and silicone.
Reinforcing your Traxxas X-Maxx is a good way to increase the strength of your monster truck without you having to break a bank.
To have a great time operating an RC monster truck, you must have a strong and durable body part. The motor of the truck is not the only determinant of how powerful the truck will be.
Having a truck with the best motor is good, but your monster truck will run well and longer when you also have strong body parts. If you choose to upgrade, purchase the accessories, and if you prefer to reinforce, you can also do that.
