Is anyone still bashing theirs? I'll be picking one up in a few weeks and just wanted to know how these are doing. Vettehigh, did you keep your XS or sell it later on? Were you happy with it?

I'll do all the HD drive cup upgrades, CVDs, and servo. I may get the VGJR edition to avoid upgrading the tires, that version comes with decent pin tires.

I sold mine brand new months ago. I ended up getting a custom Tekno MT410. Spent around $800 on the XS, only to get $425 after eBay fees/shipping etc

It was damn cool to look at

Nice, I'm guessing the tekno was definitely worth it. Did you bash the XS a lot? Why'd you sell it?

I'm starting to find some good deals on EB48.3s and I may just pick one up instead of the XS.

XS was sold brand new - Wanted the best of the best of MT's, so I went with the MT410

I'm expecting mine in a few weeks, I'm tired of fixing and maintaining 1/8 scales.

Not to get off topic, but what kind of 1/8th scales are you breaking a lot?

The ones I'm breaking are an Arrma Kraton and Outcast. Both are listed on Ebay. I'm also maintaining an LST and a Savage Nitro.

I've been looking at the kraton as my next upgrade. Is it not that durable or are you asking a lot of it?

Seem to be good to me man, I've put the Savage XS through some pain* and never had any CVD problems (before that I snapped an axle drive cup, wore down a few drive cups, bent a couple of dog bones....
