Default The one the only 8x8 xmod!

Thats right!! The very first xmod 8x8 lives XXX did a amazing job on it and i can not thank him enough for building this. It has been a dream of mine for 2 years but i could never get it to run right so thanks to XXX it is now alive!!

Here is just a few pics I will get alot better out door pics tomorrow and probably a video. Questions and Comments welcome.







And these are my xmods that XXX worked on.




Servo Connection


And just to show the length of it.



It has...

Full Bearings.
Super Flex Wire.
Deans on all connections.
Dual S1 Motors.
2 Cell Lion Batteries(rawr)
Custom Front and Rear end assembly.
Hobby Grade servo
Custom servo connection (TripleX exclusive)
Custom CF work.
8x BF Goodrich off-road tires.

I can go on and on with all the amazing stuff thats been put onto this. Again I cannot thank XXX enough for doing such a amazing job on it.

That's nice. XXX always does outstanding work. Should take a truck, split it behind the rear fender and add another wheel well behind it. And for the front I haven't a clue.

So there's $75 in the mail headed your way. Can you try and get it shipped by Friday? I'll be out of town so the sooner the better. Jkjk

Is it AWD? In the video, it looked like only the back tires were moving.

Its still the coolest thing I've ever seen done to an xmod.

i've been thought in a mod like this, making a Tatra T813 out of Xmods lol but the suspension Tatra look-alike, will be such a hard work on it

very good work, mates!!
