    My 100 Dollar Truggie

    Here is my 100 dollar truggie. Iam planning on completely rebuilding it from ground up. It was a winner in SC and Im hoping to get my foot in the door with it up here in ohio. As far as Ican see it needs new universals a few new servos and cleaned up maybe some new wheel bearings but for the price or what i got Icant complain.

    Add a full set of front/rear and center CV's and your at what you paid for the thing.....imo buying used can be a risky deal....you Never REALLY know what your getting till you do what your doing now......Tear it all down and check for yourself....good luck with what you got.

    You can definately score CVDs on ebay for 1/3 the normal price. Just keep your eye open. I did and scored some great deals on CRT parts.

    RE: My 100 Dollar Truggie

    Igot it all back together with new screws. With the lack of CVDs it seems to be ok. Seems that the things i need are all the high dollar hard to find things.
    Steering knuckles, CVDs all the way around and a front shock stay. But Idid fire it up and she screams. Icant wait.

    That was a great deal but if you threw in another $150 you could have had this SH ZMXT-8

    RE: My 100 Dollar Truggie

    I dont want an off brand truck. And after looking not many hooby shops support this brand. If Iwas gonna go that route I would go with redcat. Atleast there support is off the wall. but Iam happy with my truck. Iam happy after Ireplace everything i need to Iam still under budget on a brand new one. Sure if Iwant something to just tear up Iwould go with XTMor Duratrax but those cant compare to the big dogs. Sorry.

    RE: My 100 Dollar Truggie

    Yea, take it from me..... Buy a GOOD brand name.  My very first nitro was an offbrand, was nothing but a headache from the start.  If nothing else fails Losi has a rtr 8ight for 800 bucks.  Different sites have them for different prices.  I have one on order now!!!!

    Knuckles are on ebay for $20. CVDs are on ebay for around $20. Not too bad of a price.
