Tamiya BBX Update – Two Tips for a Better BBX

We’ve put some miles on our Tamiya BBX – it’s seen dirt, gravel, bark chips, grass, tall weeds and even sand – and it’s been a champ!

After all of this, however, we have found 2 important tips we need to share in regards to durability. These include:

1) The kit-supplied motor guard to help keep dirt and debris out of the spur gear area.
2) O-rings on the shocks to limit compression and keep the rear drive bone from popping out.

Both of these are easy fixes and definitely required for a near-bulletproof BBX!

For more info on this ride, check out our review of it here:
