Default my new beast FG MT

well heres pics of my new beast .
i allready had to do a repair job [ i glanced the gutter and broke a rear axle ] where the dogbone/drive shaft ball sits in . but i welded it up and put a peice of pipe on for added strength and it seems to be holding ok [ untill i get another one .]
i cant put the front brake kit in yet cause i need long cable holders as the cable fouls on the upper suspension arm with the short holders on .

I love seeing pics of new trucks. Look at how shiny those rims are. Now go tear it up.[sm=shades_smile.gif]

You bought the wrong brake kit. You bought the kit for the marder models, you need the one for the monster models.

That brake kit works fine on it. You just need the longer cables for the front

Your truck is set up almost the same as mine but with a 2 speed and disc on all 4 corners [X(] that sucker must rippppp !
The failsave is a sweet item. I wish everyone drove a truck with them on it.
You may want to also replace the dif with the upgraded one in a few gas tanks. You are going to be tearing it up for sure.

Have a blast !

Lets see that body on it too..

Hi,
how is Your experience with the 2-speed gear-box ? I have never seen a 2-speed gear-box installed in a MT.

Regards

well a bit of a update ,
the truckl has be running great , but i did have 2 drama`s one was the tyre insert [ on left rear ] some how came unglued and i had to take the tyre off the rim [ as it was unbalanced ] and 2nd was the long right hand side bowd cable got chewed up in the diff [ my fault as it must not have been out of the way enough] but apart from that every things good ...
