I have had tmaxx, monster gt and just got the Losi LST as far as Monster trucks go.

Have ran about 10 tanks. Having trouble with after starting it giving it throttle and dying.

Main beef is unlike the MGT when it is upside down it dies in 10 seconds. I'd like to try and adapt the patented MGT tank to it.

I guess this is a tech post too. Help!!!

But I really like the LST for the synthesized radio, power, dampening, gear combinations, and just about everything except noted above.

I don't seem to have that problem, but I swapped to the full size tank. My primer on the stock tank sucked, and that might be your problem too if it's letting pressure out.

Of course the best answer is "keep it rubber side down"!

I swapped out the tank also. Last night I removed the primer and sealed it with JB Weld. Also, I coiled up the fuel line from the top of the tank to the exhaust pipe. Like the MGT has done. I got a new tip on setting the low mixture. If you clamp off the line at the carbeurator and it keeps running for more the 4 seconds the low mix it too rich. If it dies right away it is too lean. So it needs to be somewhere between 1 to 4 seconds. If it still dies I may need a new tank or change the other fuel lines and fuel filter I guess. I will find out today. Thanks for your input.

What fuel are you running? I am running Blue Thunder 20%.

Peace out.

Mine was doing that too when it was brand new. On pavement and grassy areas. I think you need to just baby it and brake in the pads. It has loosened up. I found you have to baby the brake trigger. That seems to work. GL.

I would love to get the truck, but the thing is I already got the radio!!!! if they sold it without the radio, i'd grab one right away (that's iff I had the $$$ to!!!)

That looks about identical to the bubble i had. I didn't bother trying to get losi to replace it as a new set of 4 a-arms is only $10. Losi should replace if you want to go that route, i believe that falls firmly into the "defects in materials or workmanship" catagory.

After my 5th arm snapped I went to aluminums. No complaints yet.

Monster trucks aren't the greatest for racing. Get a XXX-NTAD2 :P
If you really want a monster, definitely get the LST.

I'd get the LST myself but I'm going to big scale.
My next project is Briggs powered.

My dad has an LST, i've driven it a few times. Its nice because I don't have to be scared of breaking it like when I drove my dads t-maxx.

He broke one a-arm, and its because he got rear ended by a savage going WOT. Savage broke also.

Those RPM arms are very hard to get right now. Everybody wants them. I can't keep them in stock! They are a tad bit heavier though.
