When you want the most durable parts possible for your ride, you go to RPM. ;e line now includes parts for the Traxxas X-Maxx,
and as with all RPM parts, they’re molded of a
proprietary plastic blend that RPM warranties

rear hubs, and a rear-bumper mount; the latest
edition is suspension arms. Let’s bust these

at what RPM has for your Traxxas X-Maxx.
;e X-Maxx arms are sold “per corner:” you get
one upper and one lower arm. So you’ll need to
get four packs to complete the truck. ;e arms
aren’t cheap at $28 a set, so it’s good that you
