I missed out on a mamba 25 motor and esc that went for 25.50 on ebay. Im sure I will ryn into another deal. I got my mini-t with 2 new batts,2 bodies
And bearings all around for 46$ . It pays to be a patient buyer .

Well my GPM bashers came in today. There a tad smaller than the stocks.

This little truck is a whole new beast with the new treads, much better traction than my old worn down to slicks step pins.
I just wish they came pre-mounted on rims , I suck at glueing but I guess its the only way to learn. I just need to get better at not making them look so messy after.
Hey at least they stay on the rims lol.

I bought 2 pairs and planned on putting a set on the front but I think I will keep them for the rear.

SoleE30, reckon you'd get replies if you post in the micro T thread, if it is indeed a micro T that you have.....?

Onto the real post

After sorting my MRC (ground up rebuild), and my MLST2, I have returned to my first love - my Mini-T.

It has gone through FullForce alloy chassis, HS81MG and CC 6800 brushlessness but now is stock tub chassis, HS55 and DSM to enable me to run it with my DX3S.

I was finding that the MIP cvds had a tendency to foul the ball diff outer cups on landing a jump so I was going to restrict the travel by placing a bit of fuel tube on the shock shaft in the shock body. However, I had a second set of the alloy shocks so I simply placed a set of the shorter front shocks on the back and problem solved.

Current spec -
Stock Chassis
FullForce Alloy Arms (Front & Rear)
FullForce Aluminum Front Cs
FullForce Rear Hub Carriers
FullForce Front & Rear Pivot Blocks
FullForce Front Shock Damper Tower
Losi Alloy Front Shocks (Front & Rear) 15wgt oil
Losi Ti Turnbuckles
RPM Front Bumper
RPM Black Revolver Wheels (or White Bully Wheels)
Losi Street Meats (or Pro-Line Dirt Hawgs, or Losi Mini Smashers)
BBs throughout
Losi Ball Diff
Losi Dual Disc Slipper
MIP CVDs
Team Orion Baja Motor
Castle Creation Mamba 25 ESC
Spektrum 3000 DSM Receiver
Hitec HS55 with Losi Servo Saver
Driven Production Steering Drag Link
Elite 2S lipo
Custom Painted Baja Shell (or Panel Van)

Very happy with this spec, may change out the servo for an HS65MG as I've got one spare after installing them in my MLST2. Want a set of paddle rear and sand rib front tyres. Also looking to pick up an Exotek MXB Pro to get use out of all my Mini-T spares !
