    REBUILDING MY MGT>>THAT TIME AGAIN



    After winning a used 4.6 on Ebay, I decided to rebiuld my old .21 (also got used from ebay about 2 years ago) from the ground up using parts from both trucks....gotta get ready for the warm weather .


    recently won MGT on the left...old one on the right (time to put the mini on the shelve)


    After doing some research on the net, i got a lil click happy over the past weekend
    Dynamite Big Red .28 Monster Truck Engine
    Losi Tuned Pipe & Side Header (high speed???)
    Dynamite Long Life Clutch Shoes
    Mugen 1.1 springs

    Also
    RPM Arms
    RC Raven Dual Rate Springs
    Factory Team Shock Caps
    Revo Wheels & Tires
    MGT 8.0 Bumpers
    Nova Screw kit

    I also will be installing New Era Bash protection system (rollcage with side plates)

    Im a basher and looking for suggestions on building a reliable, durable, bullet proof MGT.
    Here are few questions i have.

    -Stock bearings or aftermarket ones like FULLFORCE RC bearings?

    -Steering hub/block..Stock, Aluminum, or RPM? Ive broking one of these before...

    -Should i change the arm mounts (front only or both)? Ive heard they can break pretty ez. I also broke one the very first time i drove my truck, but since then (about 2 years ago) i haven't had any problems with them.

    -Should i go with the 8.0 tranny setup (spur & slipper)? I have two 4.6se trannys that are in good condition. Ive never had any problem with the 4.6 trannys, but i know the 8.0 tranny is stronger and more durable.

    -1.1mm springs? or should i go with 1.0mm? With the added weight of the rollcage, im concerned about launch and acceleration.

    -The Losi pipe im getting (LOSB5057) is also the high speed version...not the HT (i think it may just be a rebagde 086...not sure). I found it on sell at amain hobbies for $35 ($70 reg) with side header that looks like it should fit perfect on the mgt...i cant even find this pipe on amains site anymore :unsure: .
    Should i have gotten a High Torque or OFNA/Dynamite 086 pipe instead? and if so which header/manifold to use?...since the mgt side header uses a coupler and not springs that the other pipes require.

    Any advise on anything else i can use for my rebuild?
    Thanks in advance


    Ill be updating this thread with my progress and pic as i continue.....
