    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    its a alot smoother sound, u dont get that brap brap sound from the stock pipe, it also is alot quieter, which is good.

    Also u get a rather good increase in power

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    Dang what a day....... I stripped all but 6 teeth off 2nd gear...Everything else looks great but 2nd looks like a bearing now. Does anyone know if there are metal gears to replace them both? All the other gears are metal but 1st and 2nd are plastic. Any suggestions??
    i believe the new MGT 8.0 has first and second speed metal gears, s oyou could try getting a hold of just those gears but that truck is pretty new and specific parts are hard to find so your best it just getting a stock plastic 2nd speed gear unless you wanna drop $125 bucks on the 8.0 tranny.
    I think Bigfoot is blurry, that\'\'s the problem. There\'\'s a large out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside.

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    Thanks, all I could find was a set of plastics for about 15-16 dollars. As for the whole tranny the 8.0 is cheaper than the 4.6 go figure. At least through tower..But still well over $100..

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    I had my mgt for about a year now only about 3 gallons through it, but I have had no signs of any gears stripping anywhere. Although added the FOC kit almost immediately, I dunno if that makes a difference or not.

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    A year and 3 gallons??? LOL!!! I must be an overachiever...A gallon in 2 1/2 weeks.. It was kinda strange All gears are flawless but 2nd was trashed.. It probably do to running on road I guess. No signs of problems till I ran it on road. Could that be it????

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    Well I've had many expensive hobbies in the past year, plus college life interferes and being a poor college student doesn't help either. But now that I've graduated I should have lots of time to burn through fuel....until I get a job at least.

    I have burned a gallon in 1 day before .....

    Try loosening the slipper a little more , maybe adjust the 2 speed so 2nd gear kicks in a little earlier and dosent bang it in so hard .

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    Stripping transmission gears eh? this begs the question of what the heck are you doing to these trucks to strip tranny gears? I have had my 4.60 for three years now and not once have I ripped a gear in the transmission, I have broken the 2nd speed shaft pins and replaced them with spring steel pins the first year I had it, they have not broken after two years and not once have I stripped a gear in the transmission, and they are still the original plastic/composite gears. I have rebuilt the diffs do to excessive wear, I have replaced cvd pins, broken A-arms, and busted shocks, but I have never had to replace a gear in the transmission. So the question remains, what were you doing with the truck to cause transmission gear failure?

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    I think I narrowed the gear problem to jump on and off curbs on asphalt... Didn't have a single problem till I did that. So now it is for dirt ONLY..lol.. I have a brushless Evader converted over to run strictly on road.
    I know this is a bit off the MGT thread but I have this truck I got today it is for my 10 yr old son. Traded in the rest of our airplane stuff for. It is a T-Maxx 3.3.. It has rpm arms, and, this is funny, Monster GT wheels and tires..lol..So I guess it kinda goes here. I am just a proud dad showing his truck off. I did include it in with one of the pics...

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    Man, that T-Maxx looks tiny next to the MGT!

    I lowered and softened my suspension a bit, put the Talon premounts and Desert Rat body back on my MGT and took it over to Dirtrunners(local track) on Memorial Day for some track time. I was trying to finish breaking in my new RC8, but the throttle servo crapped out, so the buggy went back in the car and out came the MGT. Anyway, driving the two cars back to back was funny. The RC8 carves like a scalpel, the MGT, well, more like a butterknife, maybe even an axe. I found the only way to get the MGT around the track's tight corners was to "back it in" by braking and sliding the rear, then steering around the apex onto the straight by sliding the rear with throttle. Is this the same technique you MGT racers use, or do you guys actually try to work with cornering under traction?

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    On our clubs big track you can actually drive around the corners with an MGT. Our LHS's track is more 1/10 scale so there's lots of braking and power sliding going on to get around the corners. Not the fastest but definitely fun.

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    depends, if the needle is identicle to yours, aka same taper on the needle, same thread, length, width, etc then yes. But like i said, the only ones that i know will work are for the AE28/TTR28, same motor as thunder tiger make the motors

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    Sup all..

    I just finished my third tank on my new mgt. I cant beleive how easy this motor is to tune. Two short bursts with my drill and she fired right up for the first time. After 3 tanks its only died once and im still on the original glowplug.

    Like most stock MT's It doe's need some upgrades, like a steering servo, receiver battery pack. Those are going to be my first upgrades anyway..Also, i think the turn radius is terrible. To completely turn around my truck needs almost 2 carlengths of room. Without buying any hopup parts, are there any tweaks i can do to correct this? Thanks....
