Default The official Z-Car ZMXT-8 Z-Truggy thread

A thread for the Z-Car ZMXB-8 buggy already exists, I figured I would start one for the ZMXT-8 Truggy.
I am racing the Z-Buggy and Z-Truggy, and our race Team is filling out with Truggys as well!
Ask away, I havent had mine for long but I will be racing it almost every week, and am quite familiar with it.
It has some unique features like the Z-Buggy, and has the legendary durability of it as well!
The Pro Kit

The RTR

it has many cool features. What blows my mind the most is the one piece center diff/engine mount.
Makes it impossible for any flex between the pinion and spur!

Oh yes, all about it, what would you like to know?  



I just broke in a RTR last week and its currently being tested  



Its very nice with a fantastic running easy starting SH 3 port .28, that makes great power and gets amazingly good fuel milage! 



Airtronics fm radio, too.

Yep, All Else is included, I Built it in two days, and have been breaking in the engine, Icannot wait to get it in the dirt, this thing turns off the the hook! With NO modifications, it has more turning than any other truggy I have had, Ithrew in a Modded SHengine, and the power after only eight tanks of break in jice is crazy, Iam hopefull that Iwill get the paint sprayed this weekend and be race ready for our Friday night race next week! Impressive fit and finish on the kit, Inormally run Fioroni clutches, but Iinstalled the kit clutch on this build, I have heard great things about them, and so far it feels just fine. so Needless to say this rig is ALLSH, Minus the electronics, I run the DX3R and Jr 9000 Series servos, Lipo Batt,. I will update my pics as soon as I can erase something that apparently offended the moderators, Isee one was deleted, anyway, this rig is good quality, SHpipes are great, Iuse them on all kinds of engines with good results, these are notoriously durable kits, so its a bonus not having to do much more than normal maintenace after a race week. Get one!! I like Em, and have ran lots of Brands, These have some really outstanding featues and performance gains that can and will, make you faster, IMO! (In Monkey's opinion!)

Thats a mystery there are a few places I found online to order from. I will say this much, I wanted to order it from zcarsusa store but there was a mix up and before I could correct it the car was ordered from else where. On a side note I was kind of disapointed with the lack of response from both Zcarsusa and the store site to my emails about wanting to set up my LHS as a vendor...

but still cant wait for the car
