I did a search and found that there is just no thread that covers this truck! So, I figured I'd create one just for it. I'll be placing my order in soon and can't wait to get it. Who here already has one?

I'll be watching this thread intently.

I'm in the market for an RTR truggy at the $400 or less price point. Have it narrowed down a bit but haven't made a final decision...

The VTX is intriguing, but I worry about parts availability...

I do not have a way to post pics of my truck yet. What I can tell you is this, the truck is an awesome value for the money and runs circles around the other rtr truggy's out right now. The engine is powerful and runs between 220 and 240 depending on the temp and time of day/night when I run it. I put some race tires on it and man it really wakes the truck up. I have gotten great support from Greg at VTX. He always helps with any questions I have. I also have tried alot of Greg's set up from the website. Take a look at this truck you will not be dissapointed.

ORIGINAL: mayhem maniac

I don't know. The design for this truggy has been passed around a lot. Himoto, GS Racing, Team VTX, and several other European brands all have the same truck design. GS Racing just added their labeled stuff.
Dude....Wake Up....no wonder no1 takes you seriously...your contridicting yourself all over the website...Your telling people the XUT & VTX are the same truck...then you say the XUT is ugly and then the VTX is awsome...HELLOOOOO?
