If you like pushing your RC ride to the limit when out bashing, chances are you have broken or damaged your vehicle in the process. One of the things that you can do to help make your car or truck withstand some extreme wheel time is to improve its durability with optional hop-up accessories. In this article, we are going to focus on the colossal and awe-inspiring Traxxas X-Maxx monster truck. We will show you our picks for the top 5 Pro-Line accessories for the Traxxas X-Maxx which will boost its overall durability to keep the action going.
1 — Pre-Cut Brute Bash Armor White Body; 3513-17
The Traxxas X-Maxx is clearly an extreme RC vehicle with its massive size weighing in at nearly 20-pounds and equipped with mind-blowing 8S brushless power. When you are behind the wheel of this beast, you are treated with some intense off-road action. End-over-end tumbles, seemingly endless cartwheels and crazy crashes are all likely with the X-Maxx which means it has to handle some serious abuse. The pick-up style body tends to take a beating when pushing the X-Maxx to the limit and could stand an upgrade with something super durable. This is where the Pro-Line Pre-Cut Brute Bash Armor body comes in.
What makes the Brute Bash Armor body different than other bodies on the market and even unlike others offered by Pro-Line is the material used to mold the body. Pro-Line developed Bash Armor material to be the toughest body that they have ever produced. It is twice as thick as regular X-Maxx bodies and is ultra-flexible so that the body won’t crack or shatter.
Some nice added benefits of the Brute body is that it comes pre-cut and molded in white to make mounting on the X-Maxx chassis a cinch. So if you are not confident in painting your own RC body and you don’t want to worry about cutting it out correctly, you are in luck. If you like painting your own bodies, keep in mind that the Pro-Line Bash Armor material only comes in white and is not paintable. Now you are not stuck with just a plain white body. Pro-Line includes detailed decal sheets that feature fender and window graphics to bring the Brute body to life.
2 — Trencher 4.3″ Pro-Loc All Terrain Mounted Tires; 10151-13
By adding these Pro-Line Trencher 4.3″ Pro-Loc All Terrain mounted tires to your Traxxas X-Maxx, it will gain exceptional traction on numerous different surfaces and offer extra durability thanks to the robust molded Impulse Pro-Loc wheels.
Cleverly designed by Pro-Line, the Pro-Loc wheels are constructed so that you have the option to change tires or foams when necessary and not have the worry about the tires coming out of the bead. Pro-Line’s proprietary Pro-Loc Technology brings this feature to life and creates an ultra-secure bond between Pro-Line’s Pro-Loc Tires and Pro-Line’s Impulse Pro-Loc Wheels. The way these wheels work is the reinforced tire bead of the Pro-Loc tires are designed to perfectly fit the specially shaped channel on the Pro-Loc wheels. Then the bead-loc screws pass though the rubber tire before they are pinched by the outer bead-loc ring. This setup ensures the ultimate in securing the tire to the wheel.
Pro-Line did a great job in creating a full-size off-road look for the Impulse Pro-Loc wheels. The center of the wheel is blacked out with a split-spoke configuration while the outer bead-loc rings are molded in stone gray. Extra-thick, extremely durable material designed to take some serious abuse.
After several months of research, development and testing, Pro-Line released the Trencher 4.3” Pro-Loc tires. You will find these tires right at home on all types of surfaces including sand, snow, grass, gravel, and loose or hard-packed dirt. The Trencher tires got their name because each tire lug is shaped to dig into whatever surface you are running on. The lugs are also ultra-thick to be extremely durable while the tire itself is molded in a super soft compound for unbelievable grip.
3 — PRO-Hubs Right & Left Hub Carrier Set; 6340-02
To harness the power coming from the potent 8S brushless motor system in the Traxxas X-Maxx, the parts throughout the drivetrain need to be stout. One place that Pro-Line saw that could be beefed up are the rear hub carriers. The PRO-Hubs Hub Carrier Set is part of the PRO-Series of performance upgrade parts released by Pro-Line. These hubs were built to be extra beefy and include high-quality oversized inner ball bearings that can handle more load than the smaller stock bearings. Along with having the hubs molded out of super durable nylon material, there are also strengthening ribs designed into them.
4 — PRO-Arms Upper & Lower Arm Kit; 6339-00
The perfect complement for the PRO-Hubs are the Pro-Line PRO-Arms Upper & Lower Arm Kit. These arms are another one of the performance upgrade parts in Pro-Line’s PRO-Series. Unlike the suspension arms that you see used on most vehicles, the PRO-Arms utilize a multi-part design. The kit includes cutting edge race-style black arms with smooth bottoms which are then capped with stone gray stiffening plates. Flat head screws hold the arms together and once the parts are assembled, you end up with a tremendously durable and rigid suspension arm. Due to the super tough design and construction of the PRO-Arms, they made it onto our list of top 5 Pro-Line accessories for the Traxxas X-Maxx
5 — PRO-Armor Front Bumper with 4″ LED Light Bar; 6342-01

You can change up the look of the X-Maxx while also giving it an extra line of impact defense with the PRO-Armor Front Bumper with 4″ LED Light Bar.
