I got mine a couple of weeks ago, and have been modding it. The first thing I did was reconfigure the shock setup to a 8 shock system, using internal spring shocks for a more scale look. This...

Nitro is still talked about quite a bit at RCTech. RC Universe is just fairly inactive in general it seems.

I would make the trade. I'm partial to T-maxx's, but there is good reason. You can do a lot with a T-maxx when it comes to aftermarket parts and modding.

If you provided the form, sure. However, making a form of that size is not so easy, or cheap. You may be much better off just ordering a new one.

T-maxx uses 14mm hubs for the 2.5, and I *think* 17mm for the 3.3. If you've got 14mm, I'd upgrade to 17mm, there are a better selection of wheels and tires at that size.

If it's a lexan body, it'll crack real fast. The lexan itself is supposed to be your clear coat, so to speak, you paint the insides.

There's virtually nothing around off road...nearest one I can find is about a 2 hour drive, though it's pretty sweet (Gar-Lands). When I was last active I was a member of Nuclear RC and that was a...

RE: Best MONSTER TRUCK

It stands to reason that shops would carry more parts for the most popular monster truck out there. It's more of reflection of the popularity then the durability, IMO. ALL MT's break.
