    I would get a FM complete setup to be safe. I personally still run a stock radio, But don't drive far away either.

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    I would get the BB instead to be honest. I know some people have have put the .18 in there though. The transmission handles a BB fine so I know it will handle the .18.

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    i have only ever seen the mmgt in action ( cuz i have one) it is a very capable basher. i've launched it 10 or 15 feet up and didnt break a thing. that is except when i hit my friend that was videotaping it. look for some aftershock forums and ask around. good luck and happy bashing

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    im thinking that is what it is. but no teeth are missing and no abnormal wear on them either. i have to tear the truck apart to clean it again so i'll check my gear mesh when i do that.

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    Can anyone help find the right screws that hold the 2nd gear to the 2-speed clutch bell. In the instruction manual, the pt# is 25646, but I can't find them anywhere.

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    hey guys, just found the pro-line helios body for this truck. looks like the warthog from halo, how cool is that? i have a couple of questions about this truck. i need the true price of this truck. rc car action's 2008 buyers guide lists the truck at about 600 bucks, but i went to a-main hobbies and it's selling for about 300 there. whats the deal here? maybe the 600 is just msrp?

    anyways, my real question is this: does this thing use ball pivots (like a tc3) for the steering? if so, does it also use them in the rear for toe adjustment? i want to get this truck with the sole intent of putting the helios body on it and using one of my spare servos to make it 4 wheel steering to be very much like the warthog from halo. it's just gonna be a basher, and i just think it would be a really cool thing to do.

    thanks in advance for the help guys!

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    Hey Ryno I just ordered a MMGT, I hop all the good stuff I have read about them being fun and fairly durable is true. I have a Tower Terror right now, it was the first nitro one I bought, I can say it it fun and fairly durable too. Just wanted something with 2 gears now and liked what I read about these. Is there anything I should know before getting this and running it?

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    my freind just bought a mini mgt...i think it's pretty good truck
    the size is like first gen of tmaxx....but if u put it side by side with tmaxx3.3(4908)...it's quite small
    i did the break in for my freind...but havnt really tune the engine...and we were doing drag race with my tmaxx3.3(4908...i bought a tmaxx my freind bought a mini mgt...just broke in...havnt tune it well)...
    the mini can keep up with tmaxx... was pretty surprised with its power...
    u cant really do wheelie on the pavement...but it's a fast truck....handle turn and jump pretty well at stock setting...
    my the other friend has a mgt8.0...all of us think that little guy 3.0 is faster than 8.0....
    mini mgt is very light too....i guess that's why it can run so fast

    the only down side we found out is....the chassis for the fuel tank....
    cuz my freind were running without the body on...then he flipped his truck...then the handle take the frist hit and push the fuel tank....
    we end up with bending chassis...rite in front of fuel tank.... but we bend it back already.....
    well....he gota run with his body on anyway....it's no big deal....haha
    with the price....it's a good buy~!

    I agree that the truck is very good with the stock engine. I think the wheels and tires are good too, but if you want the truck to resist turning over so easily in turns, then just try a set of 40 series 1/2 inch ofset wheels and some bow tie tires. They look great and work great. Naturally, there are pleanty of other wheel and tire combinations that would work good, but what I am really recommending is the 1/2 inch ofset wheels. Big Improvment.

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    this truck is definitely very good and fun to drive... but i've since found out that a truck is nothing without good parts support and parts, sadly, are still scarce over here in england at least. i still have to wait around 10days for parts to arrive and there's hardly any aftermarket upgrades for it.

    again, if i was going to get another truck, i'd go for the savage...or maybe maxxx as parts are available everywhere. i wished i knew this before i got my truck.

    lisasguy do not try to use the quickstart needle settings for break in. i set them to that and its so lean it wont even start. use the needle settings in the red manual for the truck.

    RE: Anyone Have a Mini MGT?

    Wow is this truck fun once you get it tuned in. I can't believe how fast it is and the shifting is so cool. I can't wait to see what it will do against a Revo3.3 and a Tmaxx 3.3, I don't think it will keepup with the Savage but I will give it a try.
