Default Rate your truck

OK this is a really cool thread that i have seen in other forums (mostly for paintball) and thought would work well here.

post pics of your truck and give the hop ups you have done, and what kinda truck it is, then everyone rates it out if 10. One rating against the same truck (ie TMAX) and another rating against all MT's

people can also post things they think would be helpful for the truck



have fun

My Monster truck Traxxas Nitro Stampede. I think this is the truck that started it all, as far as the T-Maxx suspension setup that has been imitated time after time. My mods are a T-Maxx fuel tank and receiver box, that's all it needs, this truck rocks straight out of the box, and very durable. I have jumped it 15+ feet into the air without breaking any parts. I rate this a 10 against other MT's. Thanks for looking.

That's a nice stampede; I would rate it a 6 since it's mostly stock. Time for a new body and some new shoes for those cool rims! Looks like a nice truck.

Here's the Maxx- y'all have seen pics of it...


Sportmaxx, 4x4, 2-Speed, 18t clutch bell, XTM Failsafe, 1200mAh Rx battery, XTM motor mount, HCR Mutant Head, RD Logic Pipe, Motor Saver filter, Pullstart conversion, Raven 4mm Chassis, Raven bottom braces, Raven skids & bumpers, Raven springs, RPM A-Arms, RPM Skids, RPM bulkhead spacers, RPM shock towers, Power Racing shocks, Imex Baja tires on HPI wheels... Think that is it...

Thanks guys... Tell ya what Matt- you send me your 'Savage' for evaluation, and I will send the Maxx... Shoot- why just rate trucks? Why not go all out and have an MT exchange? Get a few trustworthy guys together with every truck, and start an exchange program- say 1-2 week terms. Shipping would be pricey, but then we could drive em all!

Dude, let's get a list of trustworthy MT owners together... We make a creed, on our honor stuff, and do it!

Jes kidding.... or am I....
