Default XTM, is it worth it?

heya everyone, I am not new to the hobby, but new to XTM racing.

I have an X-Terminator, and it's been a great basher buggy. if you're lookin to race ST's or MT's, the X-Cellerator and the Mammoth are pretty good, but if you wanna race 1/8 buggies, stick with somethin else aside from the XT

Depending on what you are looking for. If you're not racing, there stuff is good bang for the buck. They really haven't been proven in serious racing. Although I have no story about their MT.

I had an X-C and hd nothing but trouble with it,and living in the UK i found getting parts was tricky.

This was my first nitro truck.

I sold it and bought an mt-2 which i am finding alot more fun maybe not so fast but good fun all the same.

Seems to be running rather hot though but got plenty of smoke from the pipe hope this is ok!!!

the XC is kind of a bastardized combination of the RC10GT and the Losi XXNT, design-wise (like the Duratrax Nitro Evader)
it's a sound design, but it does need a bit of refinement.
