Man this truck is fast! My son has had the fastest 5 minute qualifier at the last 2 Minnesota Nitro series races (www.mnnitroseries.com) this is out of all classes including buggy. We have ran a P5x and a 421b but we keep going back to our Mach .28. I did make a special 7mm restrictor for better mileage.
He hasn't changed any shock or diff fluids, only change is to the white spring in the rear this weekend.

22Racer-How did you rig up the 7mm restrictor? That's what I need to do to mine.

I am a machinist, I made one out of delrin, 7mm inside 8mm outside.
Anyone have problems with the outer steering ends popping off? I bought an extra set of steering balls and used the same ones as the inside uses, then use a 5-40 flat head screw through the ball. Works awesome!

Yeah, works great. Steve Slayden showed this to me in early June at an RC pro series race. I did this to the buggy and before i started the truggy it was set up this way. The truck seems so bullet proof.

Is everyone enjoying their T? The thread seems sort of slow--NO PROBLEMS? LOL. Mine has been awesome. No complaints. Only praise. I should have set my buggy up like this at the beginning of the season.

No complaints about my 8T... It's been trouble free since new, and has been great on the track...

The Truggy is awsome. Stronger rear hidnge pin's maybe, and stronger/bigger outter hub bearing's.. But the truck rock's.
