Anyone know what other monster jam truck axial is releasing with this platform? I see they just came out with the "max d". I wonder what is next. I'm hoping a kit version.

I hope we see Sonuva-Digger. The MaxD body is absolutely horrible. And who, in their right mind, is going to want to pick up the spikes and put them back on after every flip?

I also hope for a kit and Axial usually releases them later. But, because of the newbie target audience of this truck, we might never see a kit.

I think the company thinks no other RC company would invest in doing an outrageous body like the Max-D. Sure, it looks ugly and probably won't sell much but this is reverse psychology. To have a body that no one makes will hopefully make it a good sale, a tactic that marketing companies are betting on and I think that is an absolutely brilliant idea. If everyone had a GraveDigger or a Bigfoot or a Monster Mutt, how boring is that. I personally am beginning to like the look of the Max-D because it is out of the norm, makes me think you can actually make your own body. I'm sure the "spikes" are made from plastic or rubber like material. I would actually take the Max-D over the GraveDigger because I can buy or mock up a GraveDigger for a lot cheaper then what Axial is selling it for. Just my opinion and thoughts.

I bought the Max-D for my son.
I'm wondering if I go brushless, whether I should go with a short coarse 550 setup or does any body know if the mamba monster motor fits? I have one from an 1/8th sale rc I used to own. Origionally I had bought a 1/10 skyrc brushless combo but I hear that the motor gets hot? (prob put it in a buggy for racing)

I also bought some option parts as well:
a set of hot racing spools,
axial option hardened steel ring and pinion gears (36/14)
and xtra speed axles. These are steel alloy and not too light, but given the bashing they are up against, I'm thinking that they could be what I need.
Also found a guy on ebay that makes the El Toro Loco body. They look awesome.

I'm thinking of getting the MIP shafts that run from the tranny to the axles.

So I have to wait till Cristmas to see it run, but plan to mod it before it goes under the tree.

I have a 3900kV 4-pole 540 motor in mine with stock gearing and I don't have any heat issues.

Is your SkyRC motor 2-pole or 4-pole and what's the kV rating?

Its an 8.5 T 4000kv motor. It turns like a four pole motor not a two pole motor.

The SMT10 is not an economical MT. The entry price is high at $400 and then the brushless system and ProLine wheels and tires add at least another $200. At this point you will break parts. The brushless system strains the drivetrain and the heavier wheels and tires tax the axles. I have replaced transmission gears with metal, driveshafts with T-Maxx shafts, axle gears with HD gears, and installed aluminum Beef Tubes in the axles. All told you're looking at about $800.

Not a Max D, but here's my Grave Digger next to a stock Tamiya Clod Buster.
