Default Truckzilla for racing??

Serpentpro28..... Hey bro I have a truckzilla and I like it but it is more of a backyard basher than a racer!! The motor has soooo much torque all you are going to do with regular tires is popping wheelies! Can't win a race when your front end is in the air. The motor sits up really high this mess up you center of gravity causing you truck to want to rollover in turns when you go in fast. You also need the 4-gear mod for the diffs so the torque from this motor does not tear up you diffs. You could correct some of these short coming but it will take alot of time and money. The Truckzilla tires don't hold up that well under racing conditions.

Serpentpro28, try neweramodels for the wheelie bar. Checkout this website to get a detailed explanation for the 4-gear diff mod and MP servo saver mod. http://www.rcnitrotalk.com look under the Hpi thread for trucks. To get the parts try this website go to their store when you get on their website. http://www.savage-central.com
