I agree with the above. AMA is all good and well but add theft and damage to your auto and home policies from whatever mainstream insurance company you use. That way everything is covered. Frankly...

I haven't done anything in a couple weeks. I fractured my right wrist (And yes, I'm right handed), so RC has been out. I can't articulate my fingers to work or handle a controller :(

To be honest, scrap the Warhead and get something current. HPI and Traxxas (to name just two) have excellent vehicles to choose from. I wouldn't invest too much into an old Warhead.

X-Maxx owners?

I'm kinda in the mood for a powerful electric MT, what are peoples opinions about the X-Maxx so far? On paper and in video it looks great, but sometimes I'm weary of Traxxas' quality.
