    Do you know how to tune? im not flaming im just asking, to try and figure out what your proplem is, so if you are a good tuner then you shouldn't have too many problems with that, have you checked to make sure none of the CVA's or CVD's are broken? that may be the problem.

    ORIGINAL: hpi firestorm

    Start from scratch....Bottom the needles out, then back out the low speed needle 6 1/4 turns, and 2 3/4 turns out for the high speed needle, then tune from there - that combo worked great for me. After break-in, mine ran best within roughly 1/16th of a turn of 2 1/2 out (HSN), though. Your best setting should be fairly close to that.

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    well probley my last major buy for the MGT was made today,
    2 x Pro-Line White Velocity HD 40 Series w/23mm Hubs (2)
    1 x Dace Manufacturing 23mm Wheel Adapter Set (4) (Black)
    2 x Pro-Line 40 Series Big Joe Monster Truck Tires (2)
    the reason its my last is, im 15 1/2 and so im going to need a car soon so i need about 3 grand to get my car so im not buying anything for a little while. Maybe RPM knuckles with these huge wheels, but thats it

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    Which XTM?? If it's the 457 Pro (.28), or their .26 Pro version, then yes (both are 6 port motors and awesome). If it's the 3 port version, it's still a good motor, but not quite the power of the others.. so it depends on the price I guess.

    I had the XTM 457 in my MGT and let me tell you..that engine is awesome. For $150 it is well worth it Keeps it tune and is very reliable.[8D]
    Put the XTM 457 in and the FOC and your MGT will be super fast.

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    I just went to put them on and
    1, The holes that go through the a arms need to be widened
    2, they dont fit on the knuckles, those little rubber washers need to come off (PITA)
    and now i realized the pins also need to be shortened [X(]

    I never had that problem, or anyone else that i have heard of. they just go right on. just like the stock ones. you have the MGT ones? double check the packaging.

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    I got them on, But yeah i think i got the t maxx ones,
    The hingpins were just upside down (top was on bottom) Stupid mistake
    They're on now and functioning, so i guess it'll work?
    One thing that i noticed was that it stretches the shocks out a little like an upside down V
    but like i said theyre working so, nbd.
    And what hole do you guys put the shocks on? i put them on the outside and it seems a little droopy.

    These are the ones i got

    axial 28 is just a prettied up HPIK4.6, alot of people have been having issues with them, dodgy carbs, leaky front bearings. Save your money and get a mach 427 or similar
