how much have you driven the raminator. Lot of bashing or just on road. I like the fact that it sounds tough.

Definetly get a losi aftershock or lst2. Soooo, much better thana savage. Better drivetrain, faster, tougher, handles way better, better for jumps...

My lst2 started out as an aftershock, and was then upgraded to lst2 status... Really, if you got an aftershock or raminator, all you would need is some rpm a-arms and a dynamite engine brace.

I've bashed it a lot, It's a very tough truck. The truck itself is exactly the same as an Aftershock so just look at all the people that have Aftershocks and swear by how tough they are. The Losi trucks are great.

I just looked up the RPM A arms and it said discontinued for losi. Does anyone know where I can get some. Are they a easy switch or do you need a kit. This will be for the raminator. Also does the engine brace make a difference.

I then went on the site RPM said to buy from and they have them listed. Now there is an adaptor for the a arm for the LST will I need to get that for the raminator or just the a arms

The ones for the LST aren't discontinued. You can buy them directly from RPM or a lot of hobbyshops have them, including tower hobbies. For the Raminator you don't need the adapters, that's only for the LST2 and Muggy. I've seen a lot of people reccomend getting the Dynamite engine brace because they say the stock one is weak, however I'm still running the stock one on my Raminator so I don't know.

Not sure where you heard that......You Can get RPMs for the LST at most Hobby Shops & on line, (The Adapter Kit for the Losi LST2 & Muggy Only)......And You should get Lunsford Turnbuckles for them as the ones that Come with them Bend and Break Real easy....

Ok I am still somewhat new to this hobby. What are Lunsford Turnbuckles and where do they go on the truck. I have also heard to get the ht pipe for the truck is it worth 75 dollars does it make that much of a difference.

Lunsford turnbuckles are for your steering sorry I don’t have a pic to show you and I would have to say Yes a better pipe is worth it and does make a big difference. My friend has a Raminator too and he told me that it runs like a bag of crap without a better pipe.

Lunsford turnbuckles are to Replace the Turnbuckles that Come with the RPM Arms........




And I'd NEVER Pay 75 Bucks for a HT Pipe.....They Sell on E Bay with Header for 20 to 30 All the time.....
