God, this truck is killer. Awesome. I was just cruising around rcmt, and I am thinking I need to spend some more time with my Avenger-based MT.

I noticed you also have a rig with the new Barbarian chassis built specially for our wraith MTs. What's your opinion on those? I like the multiple shock positions.

Thanks dude...Yes the Barbarian chassis is nice too, Im using it for racing so Im still tuning it up but I like it... The Wraith axles are perfect for MT builds.

I was slacking on my tuber for a while, glad I got back on it lol

Thanks for the head's up. I just measured my MT and it looks like the barbarian chassis fits perfect for my wheelbase. Going to order one tomorrow. Seems way more stable then my GP frame with the new sways.

Your build to me personally is the best scale monster I have seen to date ( that narrowed Awesome Kong tuber on rcmt a while back was pretty sweet too).

So here is how it sits now....waiting on the last few things to trickle in. Brett is having problems with his 3D printer so I wont have the clod wheel adaptors or ZF planetaries, So I went back to the stock clod hub and barrel nut setup to mount my wheels. Mike Hesse is sending my sway bars this week so in the mean time I will install the electronics and scale details and start tightening things up so I can start testing.








........and here is one of his alter egos!

I know you're a Bigfoot fan. I am as well, but I really like the Spiderman body on it!

Awesome build man! Those seats look cool. If you're planning on putting a driver and harness in check out facebook.com/jmrcdesigns. Keep up the good work man!

Ok......been a while since Ive updated this thread but my racers took over while I was getting ready for Diggers Dungeon.

I got rid of the scale shocks, I loved the way they looked but weren't gonna perform how I wanted them to allow me to run the truck. So I picked up some wheely king shocks. Also decided to go with a different look since I wasn't using the chrome shocks, so I painted the wheels flat black....And went with a new body!









Then right before Diggers Dungeon I was able to get the motor mounted and the floor back in lol....I still have to heat shrink the wires and grab another set of Rumble tires...I put the USA1s on it but I like the Rumbles better. I also relocated the fire extinguisher.....and I have to put the scale batteries in lol...but it was enough to take down to Diggers and show.

Such a nice rig Gavyn! Truly the best.

Curious on how this will handle compared to a Barbarian build? What's the weight ratio / bias like?

Am I right in assuming this is just a basher, and not a racer?

Finally got sum more work done to Bigfoot...

I narrowed the wheels like I did on the GP but cut the inner bead off... Went back to Rumbles and picked up CPEs outter beadlocks too. Once I trim the cleats it should look even better.








Got the wheels mounted.....just need to add 4ws steering and clean up and few things..








Finally got the windows cut out....definitely looks better







Also wanted to see how the TXT-2 body looked on it.

just read the whole thread has gave me lots of inspiration. Im "slowly" working on converting my wraith over to a monster truck as well. I am going to shoot for a old school 80's Mt. What mounting options did you use for your wheels? I am having a hard time finding many options short of making my own. I am looking for a 15" wheelbase if I can pull it off without destroying the axles.
