Default Monster Jam style with RC Monsters?

I like to try some Monster Jam style with RC Monstertruck.

Build at my Yard maybe Mini Monster Jam style track.
Nothing big and Crazy. Couple mud/sand piles and things.

I dont know what RC Monstertruck to buy.

Losi LMT is the coolest. Grave Digger is my favorite.
Anyways, these lack some durable issues.
And they are VERY expensive with hop ups needed in total.
And to be honest. I dont like Smart ESCs.

Kit ,no , there is way too much parts.

I know that MT10 ass is very durable. This has lack of attitude.
And it is not a 100% Monster Truck?

Kyosho USA 1 has also durability Issues.

I am anyways thinking of MT10, Scale look MT Wheels. And some aftermarked Grave Digger body or something like USA 1 i can paint self and fix that.

Should i go with MT10 and RPM arms, mod the looks.
Or is there anything else that is very durable and can be made looking Cool.

No Kits.
Roller or RTR.
Roller would be best, already build.

Nice.
Kit or RTR?

There is Tons of cool hop ups to these LMTs.

This LMT is the one to buy if you are Hardcore MT entusiast.
You should also try mudding with that thing. Looks so fun


There is couple important to know things before Mudding hardcore.
I will talk about these. Because i do Mudding with my Crawlers.

You need Marine Silicone and couple other stuff to protect Bearings, Electronics and so on.
I will talk about these things someday how to do it safe. How to prepare cars to handle this. And other important stuff

These are sick if you like do extreme Mudding

The LMT is by far the best choice for a good performing solid axle monster truck (out of the box). If you stick to realistic monster jam style stunts it will hold up well in stock trim! I'd recommend maybe replacing the steering servo, then just upgrade as you see fit. Real monster trucks break too, it's just a part of the game with the weight and leverages introduced by solid axles.

im leaning towards just picking up the RTR Grave Digger truck. for the way id used it, i would probably just change the steering servo, maybe add third channel rear steer, and replicate a truck from the TNT days, although im not sure which one...
back when my backyard was dirt i used to mud my Wheely King. it was a lot of fun. can't say i cared much for the clean up though.

Well, if we're staying on the topic of solid axle Monster Jam style monster trucks, I don't think too many people would dispute that the LMT is currently the strongest truck on the market.
