Default RE: t-maxx crawler??anyone?

well to staer a t-maxx is really not a good truck to crawl for a few reasons. first off being that it has an independent suspension meaning no flex. and the other is that it is nitro which means no torque at low RPMs. if you wanna make it into one you will want to somehome lock out the A-arms to make them solid, theres a few dif ways ppl have done that. then do the whole custom chassis thing.

but really i would suggest not doing it because then you will have a truck that now cant do anything well. right now they bash great and run fast. make it into a semi crawler and you will have a weak crawler and a weak basher.

just my 2c
