If i was you i would get the mammoth. 52mph out of the box on street. 46mph out of box on dirt. i love it.
here r sum vidz- http://media.hobbypeople.net/video/rcxmammoth1.wmv http://xtm.globalhobby.com/video/2003mammothweb.wmv http://dicevideo.com/paul/watermammoth.wmv
http://www.dicevideo.com/rc/mammoth-1.wmv http://dicevideo.com/paul/mammoth2.wmv

And sum close up pic's ( assuming u have never really looked at it very hard)





http://www.hobbypeople.net/specials/mammoth.asp

A couple of reviews- http://www.hobbypeople.net/review/145615xrc.htm http://www.hobbypeople.net/review/145615rcd.htm

SPECS:

Length, 59.5 cm (23.4 in)
Height, 26.5 cm (10.43 in)
Front Width, 43.6 cm (17.16 in)
Rear Width, 44.3 cm (17.44 in)
Adjustable Wheelbase, 38.9 to 39.4 cm (15.3 to 15.5
Ground Clearance, 8.75 cm (3.44 in)
Weight 11.75 lbs.


the only thing i really think u should do for it out of the box is put thicker shock oil. Probably around 40wt or so.

Mammoths had all died out before the 1960's.

Why is it when I look at the close up of the top of the mammoth it looks like its missing something, like battery box, it just looks so sparse. not that thats bad, simple is often lighter and better.

Anyone know where I can find a site with:

1) upgrades for mammoth

2) and a good selection of street tires and rims for all MT's including mammoth?


Thanks

hey tweedybird..when you pick up your mammoth also pick up an extra front bumper..then shave off the centering lug on it and mount it in the rear (rear bumper) this will save your body. also pick up the thicker part that covers the tranny and holds the supports for the shock towers...and if you plan on going big air with it get a couple extra arms....

Yah tweedy i would definetely get the chrome bumper. You should take off the front bumper....... put that on the back and put the chrome on the front.

Yeah I plan on it, at first I was going to buy 2 chrome bumpers for front and rear, but I thought that might be pushing the bling bling to far.
don't think it would look quite right.[X(]

on the frt bumper there is a centering lug (triangle looking thing ) that centers the bumper in the frt lip of the pan/chassie...the rear does not have this v shape so it has to be removed so it will bolt up right...
