Default RE: Official XTM Monster MT Thread

I emailed XTM about the radio and they would replace it. But I have to pay the shipping to get it to them. I just spent $400.00 why should I have to pay. Any time I ever had a problem with any company's stuff they always paid both ways. Or gave a little extra to make up the difference. Makes me wonder if this is how ther customer support is I am worried about driving the truck.

I read that people are breaking the same parts as you and then I read some say they can't break it! I guess I will find out soon enough.

Don't know about you guys but I break in the engine by idling it threw a tank and making sure the temps are in the low to mid 200.

I really did not tune for speed just lean out the high speed needle and was going to take it easy in my back yard. Well that did not happen I started to “monster truck it” taking jumps off my deck, jumping and landing on loose 4x4 railroad ties. This truck is a tank. I can’t tell you how many times I full throttle over the ties landing on the roof, ends of the tires that I thought would rip right off the truck. I beat the living sh__ out of this thing and with the body off too and it took all the abuse.

From reading posts about how bad the truck is to bash I thought it was going to break if I ran over a crack but this thing is great! I know I will blow the rear diff out cause I had a lot of landings on the rear axle with the throttle wide open. You could hear the rear pop a tooth or two. I don’t care if they go I will just replace them.

So for me I as of now I love this thing. But time will tell. I will drive it again and take a video so I will let you guys know.

That MMT is a big old bomb and a lot of fun if you don't expect it to act like a buggy. #1 it doesn't have a center differential so you should only be doing moderate jumps with it #2 the best place for it is on a baseball diamond or in a big park. #3 The shop MMT is almost always on cement and its done plenty of rolls and even a few big jumps very carefully without any problem just don't hit the walls or curbs.............over 3 gallons through that big beast and the only problem I've had is it sticking in first gear when I first got it going. No its not a Savage or a Revo but its as much fun as either one of them because it does what its built to do and thats being a beast

All I've done with my MMT is Off Roading small jumps nothing mayor, the cause of the problem? when I first opened the diff case the pinion didn't have the washer or spacers at all, so that might explain what happened with the diff from factory error. Now I put bouth washers in the pinion and it feels way much better in all aspects of the word.

I have found that these truck problems begins with the front stock axles, then the C hubs, the inner foam tires, and pore assembler from Co. if someone is to buy one of these truck they should go true this parts first, it will save them hard times.

i did break the left front axle but go the losi ones to install. I never had a problem with the foam in the tires they run great. i did break the spur gears but i did not re adj the mesh after break in so i will say that was my fault. i love the truck and the engine is great i thouth it would be a dog but it's not. i think it's an SH enigne. i am almost done with my workshop so it will be RC time real soon.

if you don't hear it shifting tighten the adj down run the truck and see it's top speed, then slowly back out the adj screw till you get it to shift.

mmt guns,i gots questions: so the only place you put washers was on the pinion and this stopped the destruction?is that bug body in your avatar on the MMT or something else?

rcbeep73: what losi axles did you break?


jombo i made it here...lol...


.....hey i havent had any issues with my MMT except landing on the wheels wrong....but then again my truck is fully customized by XTM , jombo knows about it.


the reason im asking questions is due to the bust up stock MMT i just traded for.im gonna have to rebuild her from the ground up.

First of all welcome to RCU Bad67bird I've seen you on the XTM forum, as for your question my truck broke the diff without me bashing it hard at all. when for the first time I opened the diff case and toque it all apart I notice that it didn't have the washers that belong on the ring and pinion set, I'm still guessing that this caused the ring and pinion problem. but it feels much better when I move it back and fourth by hand, ( I know is not the same ) I have to admit I haven't driven the truck yet so I can't tell you for sure how good it came out to be. The Bug is an RC10GT.

Ps: How's your truck doing? I stare at your truck every time I see it lol I get hypnotized

Wow! thats so cool I wish XTM sold those aftermarket parts for the stock MMT, it would make a world of difference on holding up on a good bash with friends. does your MMT still have the stock 457?[sm=what_smile.gif] I feels weird asking that.
