if you get the black box the axles are mild steel and will break quick. also the gears were not put together in both yellow and black crawler boxes. if you call hobby people or global hobby, give them your invoice # and let them know that your gears or axles came apart, they will send you new and improved parts with only 1 question to ask you.
whats ur address?

save your old gears and weld / braze / jb weld them for back ups.

If you email them about the axles they may just send you new ones. They were quick to act when my gears spun out. I'm betting they send you new ones pro bono I wouldn't get too specific about where you bought it. Just say you bought the one with the black body and your axles broke. They know about this issue and are probably willing to help. Keep the email simple and ask for help.

NICE....I will do that... So I guess I can say.....you're happy with your crawler...? I keep having these stupid doubts...
after everything is finally dialed in.....how does it perform..? (in your opinion)

after working through the glitches it the design flaws, then more and more tweeking i would have to say i love my x crawler. it was very disapointing having the gears come apart but if you hold in there and keep pluging away with the small problems, it will crawl awesome!!!

Yeah...I'm really looking forward to it. I spoke with XTM and they'll hook me up as soon as I let them know that the gears went...but you know whats up... I'm really not to far away frm completing it even tho it is in its stock box condition..
I think we have the chassis extension worked out b using Traxxas alumn chassis rails.
Are you running any droop...?
