Questions?? XTM X-Terminator Hop Ups and Questions?

Just picked up a XTM X-Terminator 2 Track Edition and cant seem to find hop ups anywhere. Anyone know what parts from other trucks will fit? Or if XTM has upgrades for this buggy?

Also, i hear the engine (XTM.21) should run from 215-230degrees F. Is this true? I idle mine to 160degrees before i drive it, but when im done its only at 190degrees, so temp is fine. Im going to retune soon. This isnt my first nitro, but i want to really take care of this one.

Also, what can i use on the Foam element if i dont have foam oil?

Default ?

We started out with this buggy, and tried to race it just for the heck of it, I'm not sure if your gonna race it, but if you do, you'll need parts, we still have ours, it has only 4 laps on the new body, and new springs

Ill be bashing mostly. Not really any racing around where i live, and its not really my style.

Hobbypeople and Hobbyshack sell parts, but neither have upgrades :\

If you have the track edition then you have all the hop ups this was my first nitro also was not a racing buggy at all but if you like bashing with it have fun

not true. they have all the parts. i know cause saddly i work there. the track edition comes with a lot of hop up parts that we sell. so you wont be able to hop it up any more then it really is.

i cant remember what all the track edition came with besides the alumn. hing pin holders but we do carry the rear hubs, steering hubs, shock towers, center diff mounts, diff cups all in alumn. and we carry the cf radio tray and stearing bellcrank.

i would just get some extra arms front, rear, upper and lower. and the upgraded steering hubs and then just save up for a new motor and pipe. maybe something with a little extra power.

Track edition comes with lots of aluminum. Ill check hobbypeople again and see what i come up with. So far i havent broken anything on this buggy ( a cvd pin came out is all). I do want a new engine, but ill wait until this one has had some hell put through it. THanks for the help guys.
