New Monsoon XTR owner
 
Hello all,

Just received my monsoon xtr yesterday. Its my second vehicle. Im also the proud owner of a TMaxx 3.3, which is an awesome truck.

Cant wait to get this beast fired up and broken in.

I have a couple of questions.

Any recommendations on shox/shock oil setup? Will any 1/8 truggy shox fit?

What mods are recommended?

Any sidegaurds/mud guards fit this vehicle?

As far as after market parts and hop ups, any other vehicle parts fit this thing? Ive read that some of the aftermarket rc8t and losi eight T bodies will fit, with some modification.

Thanks for your time. Ive spent alot of time looking throught the tmaxx forums and have found a ton of useful information and am hoping to find the same for my redcat.

Jeff

thorMaXx-

I've found the stock shocks with stock weight to be good for bashing, but you can always fine tune them for your liking. The mud gaurds from the hurricane xp will fit the avalanche, but they will stick out from the body.

Thanks,
Derek

also i hear a lot of monsoon owners talking about shock oil its not the oil change your springs put a stifer spring in when you now jump the springs will take most of the impact
