Started as a stock TXT but I flipped the transmission, fully ballraced it, added a wide range of hop-ups and custom made a few parts such as the motor gaurd, servo mounts and transmission mounts. I made the cosmetic shocks and headers from scratch and velcrow to the chassis so I can takethem off when running. Parts have come from all over the world, decals from Parma and Faceworx, body from HPI, electrics from EZRUN, FlySky and Tower. The truck has been lowered by one inch and stiffened for race purposes, the front in slightly lower to resemble the real trucks. A 4 month project with references from real trucks. This was my first stab at this so hope you guys like. With more regards to the electrics, radio is 2.4gHZ, 5.5T brushless, 3 11V fans to keep it cool, 22.2V lIpo battery, reverse Y-harness and Tower high torque, high speed, ballraced digital servo's. Every parts has been custom designed and painted by myself!

With thanks to the following:

Very cool monster monster truck
22,2 volt lipo?is it a big 1/8 brushless setup?
Better buy some punnisher shafts for that kind of violence or e-revo front/rear shafts!
The stock ones wont last very long,as I experienced.
Very nice truck.
