What seems to be the problem with it? I have one with the OS .12 CV-R in it and it is plenty fast. I know the stock motor is pretty fast from the box once properly broken in.

They came out with an eletric one reacently.

The gas one looks sweet looks like it can hang with a n.rustler on the straits and keep up with a losi in the corners suspension design is sweet.

For the price its a bargan too.

Next year they should make it shaft start since it seems thats what alot of compainies are doin pretty conveinent.

Most is cosmetic. Lundsford titanium tie rods and some factory alum. parts. I also did redo the diff with a Tamiya thrust bearing assembly instead of the stock setup and used better 3mm diff balls.

Yes they are threaded and come factory. I did drill out my pistons with a #56 drill bit. The stock shock pistons are 3 hole so I just drilled the stock holes a tad bigger.

I had one... biggest mistake ever. No, it didn't suck. The biggest mistake was that I sold it because I was frustrated with tuning.... IDIOT!

But anyways. It's an awesome truck. Very well built and has lots of cool technology things on it...

XTM in General is a much better company than most people think; they're underrated. I love my Mammoth and Xterminator.

Mine works well and with some TLC you can make the truck work well. I run against ass Losi trucks and I do well. The truck handles well and needs a little gaering change and it is much better
