Default Bringing back an old truggy for racing?

Hey guys I swapped one of my SC's for an OFNA Mutilator last week. Normally, I'd shy away from both OFNA AND nitro, but something about it told me that it had potential. It is the pro version, where all of the problems have been worked out, and with plenty of hopped up aluminum parts. It seems to be pretty solid, and I am thinking about doing a bit of racing this summer with it, considering that it's been converted to a true truggy now. Does anyone still own a Mutilator Pro or know/seen anybody racing with them? It's hard to find tips for a truggy that know one knows about!

Thanks guys!

it's just a Jammin CRT in disguise. Pretty sure most parts will fit right over

Default MUTILATOR

The mutilator is definately not a Jammin in disquise. I have owned many Jammin products, multiple x1 cr, x1crt,x2cr,x2crt, jammin engines,etc. and the mutilator, several of the parts will fit either but they have a total different suspension and layout. Jammin's are a thing of the past but are a much worthy racer and more durable then the Mutilator. If you are looking for an in-expensive start for a truggy I would look for a used x2crt

Any of the 9.5 series parts will fit. Like braces, shock towers, etc.

Got to make do with what I have. Besides, what are the differences between the two? I think that with some lightened CF pieces and a good setup I can make it work. Hopefully

I just thought that getting a Losi or AE would bring me into serious nitro racing, which is not anywhere on my agenda. I'm just looking to have some fun with a compettititive background.

Go for it. I would, Majority of all my collection is Ofna and I Love them. I do have a CEN Truggy, and an old Mugen Truggy. Everything I have is older but they sure do run good. It's all about the fun factor. The minute I quit having fun will be the minute I move on to something else. But I don't see that happening.

Precisely. Why race if it's not fun?

If anyone else has any tips for this truggy though it would be much appreciated.
