Default Monster MGT Owners Whats involved in dropping a mach .26 in this truck?

I was just wondering how many things need to be changed to drop the Mach .26 in my MGT. I have a brand new one from my LST collecting dust and I would like to bolt her in if its pretty much a straight up exchange.

you will have to change your throttle linkage to you will have to make a longer one, i used the stock mgt flywheel and stuff but i couldnt get it tight enough, the flywheel kept spinning on the crank under acceleration, so i use one of my stock savage ones.

hey proxpilot.. did you use the stock collet? because if you use the mach collet you will have the problems your talking about..

and yes like proxpilot pointed out you will need a longer linkage rod..

It'll drop in. Do you have the losi exhaust? you'll need a pipe the MGT it to small. If you have to get a pipe get the RDLogics it works good on the Mach and it comes with the header ( like the losi) so you can run it up the side. If you got a extra 40 bucks or so get yourself the sportwerks carb. w/ 9mm. insert. This combo of engine carb and pipe work extremlly well together The mach collet is short. I would use the MGT flywheel and clutch . I like it I just bought the stuff to put it on my basher LST. I would like to see all manufacturers start using vented fly wheels. They have to help cool a little after all it's a fan. The mach should make the MGT fly pretty good.
