Opinion On Xtm Xterminator

DOES ANYONE OWN A X-TERMINATOR, and WHAT ARE SOME PROS AND CONS TO THE BUGGY. IT LOOKS VERY RUGGED TO ME AND I WAS INTERESTED IN PURCHASING ONE. ALSO, ARE THE XTM BUGGY BODYS INTERCHANGE WITH ANYTHING ELSE?

Default stay away

There a complete losi rip off and poor support.

They are a Hobby people exclusive product which means you dont have any choices with dealing with the poor support and problems you may face with them.

If you want to get a wannabe losi truck, dont wste your money, get a real losi truck, there's a lot more support out there for you, at a much higher quality product

Default buggy

if it comes with the 24.7 the head is small and warms up but spend $50 in a crazynut head and it will run great, ihavent found anything else bad about it and has lots of upgrades

Default bodies for Xterminator

Are there any other bodies that will fit on the X terminator? Maybe an ofna or kyosho body?

The X-T has different mounting holes, but if you get an un-reamed body then it should fit. There's a company in the UK that has put 1/8 on road bodies onto the Rex-X (UK equivalent) so almost anything is possible. Links to this site are in my web page.

The X-Term has some weaknesses - the rear diff case has lots of problems if you jump & land on the wing. The case breaks apparently but it's a US$8 part so not too bad, plus it's not hard to make a brace to add support & strength. Many people have done this and not broken the diff case again.

I've hammered mine around an on-road course, but done very little off-road yet. I haven't broken a rear diff case, but have broken 2 front lower suspension arms. These are AU$16 for 2 at my LHS, so should be around US$5 each or better.

The 24.7 has a lot of torque, but supposedly not a great top-end.
They are also sold in Europe and Australia by GV and called a Rex-X. There's a number of Alu and Carbon hop-ups and the buggy is sold in 3 setups - RTR, RTR Deluxe (a few hopups including bigger cooling head) and a PRO which has no engine or electrics.

Personally, they seem to be excellent value for money. Mine cost AU$650 here in Australia, but they're at $495 right now. I think they have "specials" occasionally in the US where the RTR version comes in at US$299.

Cheers! Oggy.

p.s. have a look at Global Hobby's forums - there's a link on my site at http://rc.dyn.ro.
