but I want the body for a crawler dammit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder how these trucks would look/drive with Clod-sized tires. Has anyone tried that out?

Probably a lot like they look on a Clod. These trucks are the same wheelbase, or damn close.

I doubt the drivetrain would hold up to Clod sized tires, I'm already worried about how they'll hold up to the stock tires and brushless power in the long term. The diffs look very similar to Tamiya TLT diffs in design and size.

I donít think Iíd want any larger of a tire on it with that short of a wheelbase and itís already got a large steering scrub radius. The stock tires just barely miss the bottom straight links too at full lock. Finally yesterday I broke the first part- a front lower link. In its defense itís taken several hundred jumps and I landed nose down pretty hard. Still doing great. I think itís simple enough to go ahead and make myself a set of lower links with traxxas ends and all thread w brake line sheathing. Iíll let you know the lower links are actually hollow so I snipped an old Allen wrench down and forced it inside w shoe goo to keep it in place. Iím home only every couple weeks so itís working as a bandaid. I think itíd also benefit from some kind of oil or light putty in the diffs to aid in recovery when bicycling and help the rear to break loose instead of diffing sometimes. Very happy w my truck still.

I run Renegades on mine using 19 mm Junfac wheel wideners. On full throw it just clears the links but if you use force it could snag. But I just don't care for monster trucks with small tires so for me it's worth it. As for durability, I can only speak from own experience. It's had a few jumps and tumbles and the only part I've broken so far is a body post. And that's ok. The MTX really is my favorite truck right now.

Did this truck get discontinued? Stock is falling everywhere, most places sold out (with the exception of ebay). I'd hate to see it go, but this makes me wonder if something new is coming?

I think the MTX-1 axles are based on the CMX and CFX axles.

They're releasing another CFX-W (with portal axles) with a Jeep body this time. I already have an extra CFX-W kit and just want the body, but it was stated that they won't release the body as a standalone at first.

The look is really scale too. It stayed planted pretty well for what it is too because the motor is low in the chassis keeping weight fairly low. Iíll upload a couple videos to YouTube so I can share them here. Yesterday I tilled the whole track so now itíll be more scale softer actual dirt.


Roughly what kind of speeds do you get out of your mtx running on 2s lipo?

It looks like the suspension needs a lot of sorting, but overall a fun truck.

I'm also interested in how it's holding up.

I wish it was offered in a kit.
You're in luck!!...Kit versions have just been released. One with a painted C10 body and one with the very cool TH1 clear body! Just ordered 3 of them from ATees for a total of $610 shipped! $180 a piece plus a $25 store credit.
