I've had this truck a week now and I've had a lot of fun with it. I have broke the servo saver and pivot ball shafts. It's taken some big hits though. My biggest complaint right now is not that I broke it, but the parts I need are out of stock. I made a post on the Pro MT's facebook page and they said they will send me the upgraded servo saver for free. So that is great to hear. Hopefully they'll stock up on parts and all will be peaches and cream.

i understand that : i might be weak but having a positiv contact with a manufacturer means/helps a lot ! we can understand parts breaking , we don't understand parts not available ! a nice contact/word from the manufacturer will help it out !

I wouldn't say the truck is weak. I have bashed on it a fair bit. Yes it broke but the hits were really hard. It might have a couple quirks but this is a solid, well thought out design. Pro-line has already addressed the weak servo saver, with an aluminum upgrade. Hopefully they keep the input from users in mind and keep making this truck better. It's a fun truck that with a few changes/upgrades could make it most durable. It also has great handles and is a nimble little truck

Here's an edit from a few runs last Sunday. Since then I upped the center diff from 500k to 1 Million and it made a huge difference in handling

Hi

Well I had my first mishap today with my truck. I have yet to even drive this truck and it's already broke. I was adjusting the shocks to get the rebound set right and when I did the drop test one of the front shock caps popped right off, the last time something like that happened was with my stock Arrma Raider shocks. I guess I'll just have to get the aluminum upgrades sooner then I was expecting to.

I've bashed this truck pretty hard and never popped a cap. Is the thread stripped? I'm thinking maybe bad assembly in the factory. Contact Pro-Line customer servie. They will probably take care of you. Also there is a facebook page 'Pro-Line Pro MT 4x4 Owners' Post this there and the guy from Proline is really helpful. His name is Matt

Did we ever figure out what extended body mounts work? Monster truck bodies take a beating and my Corvette isn't going to last much longer.
I installed the aluminum steering arm and got a bash session in. I still need to work on my jumping skills. The 3s system got pretty hot so I'm going to try a 4s system that I already have, Woohoo.

Hi

Customer Service at Proline said the Pro-Line Slash 4X4 Body Mount Replacement Kit Stock# 6087-01 will fit, unfortunately you have to buy two sets in order to extend all four body mounts.

Hey guys,
Just got my MT and looking to find out a common fluid setup. Running 4s + 1/8 ESC/Motor.
Getting some of the alum parts for durability. Is there a compilation of recommended upgrades for the truck outside of the Servo Saver (obvious replacement) and the steel spur?

Thanks!
Rick
