I have not seen any different part numbers for the Power Strokes. I think the T-Maxx ones are the ones everyone uses.

Default proline shocks

Bro,

YOu could also try using front buggy shocks from Kyosho Kanai II or III versions. These are really good shocks for the TNX.

Default Headers

Wyd,

Have you tried headers for the TNX. Any headers that will fit? How about a novamega head of purple head of globe horizon? Any feedbacks if they improve temperature reduction and appearance??

I just run the stock header. I use White Lightning 20% fuel and have no problems with the motor running hot. It only runs around 220 to 230 and thats all the hotter it gets.

I like the looks of those pics! We are able to run 1/10 nitro trucks at our local track but not the big trucks...lol

Thanks for your help.

Hi Guys,

We have the TNX Pro available for pre-order right now along with the estimated price for the truck. This is basically a replica of Dave Jun's truck from their successful last year of Monster Truck racing This truck should be available in the next couple of weeks

Man that's a great deal... $100 bucks for a set of Powerstrokes, wheels, tires and a cooling head.

Steve -- I got my Powerstrokes on. I just used the stuff that came in the hardware kit, along with the 3X15 socket heads for the lowers.

Basically, I drilled the upper mounting hole to use the thicker bolt, shortened the mounting boss to 1" overall length and used one of the white washers as a spacer on the side with the spring.

You have to do a bit of clearancing under the upper mounting boss to clear the larger shock cap. It would be pretty easy with a dremel, but I just used an X-acto knife. Same for the lower arms to clear the eyelet. That doesn't need much clearance at all.

Edit -- oh yeah...that and clearancing the lower end of the bypass shock. You can just grind/file on one side or cut the lower 3 fins off on a lathe. I rigged up a really simple arbor to to it in a lathe (-6 to 3/8 NPT AN fitting, a bolt, nut and some washers) and they came out just like the shocks in the Tamiya pics.

If anyone wants to get the shocks through Steve, I can cut them for you. He has the best prices around.

I'm on my way up to the park to beat on it.

Thanks for all your help Steve!!!

Post rear exhaust engine on the TNX?

Question for those who race the TNX. Has anyone swapped out the stock motor with a rear exhaust yet? (I was wondering what maifold, pipe and starting system were being used)

Thanks in advance,

John
