Default My XTM X-Sized Truggy

Mixture of a Mammoth and a X-Terminator with alot of thinking and cutting/grinding. Really improves cornering....still plan on a single speed center diff, just need to find the right spur gear.

It'll be far from race ready (need to do some settings on suspension really), Nut I will be racing, got everything I need, just need to run 2-6 more tanks and do some fine tuning Saturday.

Matt I might need your help on the Shocks/Camber/Toe.

I'm really waiting to see Al Horne turn what some claim are 16.5 second laps...(sounds like a joke).

Yea you've done a super nice job there BT. Did you use an XT chassis to do this? I'm kind of curious since I used to own a Mammoth and have an X-Terminator buggy now and love it. It actually handles better than the Mugen MBX4RR I just sold recently but I don't think it's quite as bullet proof. Anyway like I said super job man!

Yeah I started with a Mammoth, added an X-T Chassis, Radio Plate and Boxes, Center driveshafts, and side guards.

The chassis had to be cut and ground to fit the engine and the Mammoth 2 speed w/ Mammoth center mount. The Exhaust SideGuard was chopped to fit the Jammin JP-1. The Mammoth Center Trans Top plate was cut, as was the X-T Radio plate.

The Fuel Tank required a small adapter plate to be made from some computer parts (just a flat piece of steel really).

I do plan to fit a Center Diff and single speed spur in eventually, but the RC wallet is closed for the Holidays

Jake, i am really interested in seeing that MGT run some fast laps too. Im sure with Al driving it, the laps will be smooth. But can the MGT really get around that tight track faster than the Kanai, Stadium Pro, and the Revo??? I guess we'll find out Sunday. As usual, i'll be there at 10. We'll take that truck for some laps and see how it does. If it needs any asjustments, we'll make em.

Yeah I'll do that tonight....the measurement of loss is 2.625" (2 5/8"). And the final weight is 9.86 minus fuel.

I know the Camber and Ride Heights are off, which i'll work on Saturday night, as well as mounting the body...

Well looking at the X-T and your pics I can see just how you did it. Man that was a lot of work! The results look excellent. You know I was just thinking I wonder if you could do that in reverse starting with the X-T (which already has the center diff and brake bias). The rear shock tower is the exact same on the Mammoth and the X-T and the X-T deluxe I have already has the 7075 upgrade tower. I had an extra rear a arm left from the Mammoth I had and just compared it to the X-T. Look like it would bolt right on but it's about an inch (maybe more) longer and you'd need to change a lot of other stuff. Maybe just some offsets or adapters. Hum? Let us know how well she works!

Yeah you can go X-T to Mammoth.

All you need is the Mammoth arms (upper and Lower) and the front CVA's and rear dogbones. Other than that some sort of body posts, and of course the biggest hurdle is a bigger spur gear.

Fine looking truggy BT. Hope it works as good as it looks. I just got the Jammin JP-2 for my Ofna Blazer truggy(Force .26). Let us know how that pipe works. Nitro House recommended to me the JP-2, saying the JP-1 holds back on rev out, even on my low end .26...
Enjoy your custom truggy.

Everyone tells me the JP-1 is a great low to mid pipe, and on my tight tight track, thats all you need.

Awesome.

I would suggest though that you use XLB rims, the offsetisnt so dramatic, and you can still use maxx tires.

Looks good!! but like tnx said!! the full offset dom rims !! A good handeling truggy needs to be as wide as it's length! try the gs sut 17 mm rims they are 1/2 offset! also ofna has some 17mm normal offset but they are not out yet! check out dadders they have a centre diff out for xtm

hey do you think this would work for the center diff in the XTRM?

[link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXCXB2&P=7]ofna steel sliper[/link]

would this be good or should i try to stick with the center diff?

Dadders Center diff link, OUCH on the price though.

when you pm'd me on the XTM forum you said you thought that the Ofna Dominator Spur might work. the only dominator spur i could find was the slipper system i posted. the only Ofna spur i could find that looked like it might work was from a monster pirate (only one with 4 bolt attachment pattern) so i bought one and it's on the way.

does that one look right?

i hate not having a LHS. gonna make this trial and error thing take a while. have to order everything online. better deals deffinately but i think i'm gonna end up with some parts that don't fit just hanging around.
