How is the overall build of the kit. Is there ample lock tite where needed. Did any thing wiggle loose. I'm still waiting for my kit to come in, I was told this monday. Is there anything I should look into.

thank you.



p.s. with the stock motor and tank, how much of a run time can you get off one tank. thanks again.

I had one of those trucks when they first came out. I bought the pro version with the
aluminum arms. I don't know which version you have, but the first batch of axels broke
at the drive pin. They were overhardened from the factory. Called HB, no problem they
sent the new axels right away. You can use the shiny axels off a Losi LST, just the bone
portion, and use your existing axel. Stronger than stock. Also you may want to double
up on the drag links, they bend pretty easily. The diffs are filled with very light weight
oil, like 40w shock oil or something. Try 5-7-3 in the diffs. I also increased shock oil
to 50w all around. Keep than long chassis from bottoming out on the takeoff of a jump.
Junked the stock HB motor for a Sirio 27xl pro version. Non-pull. Fast as hell. First time out
at the track qualified 2nd for the a-main, out of 3 monster truck outlaw classes. After a twenty
minute main I took the win with a lap and a half over second place, three laps over the rest of the
field. Awesome truck, just too radical of a design for some people. I loved it. I sold it to my
friend, and he just can't drive it enough. If you need help with that truck let me know, my friend
and I have alot of stick time and tuning with that truck, to make it handle much better than stock.
chim,
whats the difference in the handling characteristics if you move the rear hub carrier pin in the upper hole or the lower hole.

if you double up on your steering link, does it affect bumpsteer?

I noticed there was bumpsteer with the stock set-up, I got rid of it though. I shimmed the steering knuckle, under the steering tie rod.

No it wont affect bumpsteer because of the way the ball ends attach on the bottom of the link,all your doing is putting the "other" link on top not changing where the rod ends attach.

Default Panther Pythons

I am new to Monster Truck racing. I've been racing 1/10 Nitor Trucks for about 8 years.

I have raced my Hot Bodies Truck a few times on reg sized Bowties with Trinity 3-piece foam.

The tires just has too much sidewall flex for my liking.

I was thinking of mounting one of the following:

Reg sized Bowties cut to fit Revo rims

40 series Bowties

Panther Pythons


I have heard that the 40s are very forgiving if you land a bit sideways of a jump.

Anyone have any good luck with the new panther pythons? How many teeth should I gear up with these tires?

Has anyone had luck with the new Komodo dragons?

They look like they are too low profile.
