ZD Racing ZRT-1 Truggy
 
Just picked one up at LHS and it looks nicely built...Options wise... Has anyone got any reccomendations? Has it been fairly dependable or is it a mechanical nightmare? Any reccomendations would be helpful for track setup and any must do mods?
Thanks

RE: ZD Racing ZRT-1 Truggy
 
I have only one problem with the ZD Truggy...the servo arm and steering.

The servo will not allow full steering potential and the arm on the servo will strip after a few runs...other than that I love the truggy and I'm in the process of moding the steering linkage to gain sharper turns.

RE: ZD Racing ZRT-1 Truggy
 
Hi guys new to the hobby just wondering if someone could tell me the quality of the zrt truggy 1/8   I found parts are at this site called  CERMARK.com they seem to have alot of parts available   thx jay

Update
 
I just wanted to update my first impressions from when I first started using the ZRT-1 Truggy. I had gotten three of them on eBay @ ridiculously low price (just over $100) when they were in the "promoting the brand" stage of the truggy. The first one was for daily use and the other two for spares. They are a really good truggy for the most part, then one main part keeps having issues. The front universal drive shafts are weak or the steel used to make them is not of good quality. 'Cause after replacing 10 ~ 15 universal joints (sometimes 3~4 in one week) I have come to the conclusion that the shafts were not going to improve in quality.

Everything else about the truggy was solid! It has taken 4~5 foot high off center landings/beatings, and survive repetitive cartwheels. Just everyday normal turning, and no crashing, snaps them shafts. I even took the front drive line out of the equation; locked the center diff; made the truggy 2wd. That didn't work. The ZRT-1 just became a handful to control in dirt with only rear wheel drive.

Anyway...I got rid of all three on eBay, and almost doubled my money back. All in all, the ZRT-1 was way too fast; way to big, and had a long way to go with one single part. I know parts wear out, but it was a pain to see so much time wasted wrenching on the truggy compared to the time on the track. I would still own a ZD Racing product if that "weak link" issue could be resolved.
