Default My slow build of an SMT10.

So I got the monster truck bug after watching some videos. And my LHS happened to have two in stock. I picked up the Max D since it is discontinued, and so I donít have to dye the chassis. Took it home and immediately ripped out the stock esc and motor. Replaced it with a dynamite esc from my rtr Ascender and a 20t rc4wd motor. So far loving it, itís not fast but itís a lot of fun.

Nice, these trucks are fun to wrench on for sure.

While running the other day I had noticed I lost power to the front axle. Thought I had broke the outdrive, turns out the screws had backed out hold the outdrives together. Didnít want to break the bank on trans parts so I opted for the Axial powdered metal gear for 7$ and an Integy aluminum case for 16$. Weíll see how long the hold up. I also swapped the plastic slipper bushing out for a bearing, probably not needed but I like the piece of mind.

The same happened to mine after a couple runs. This is a common problem, I'm surprised Axial hasn't addressed it yet.

Nice, I'm still waiting on parts to arrive, but hope to start my SMT10 upgrades soon.
