Found them on eBay.

There actually made to mount on the existing body post, and bolt to the body. Using them that way made the body to high. I took out the original body post mount and just bolted the lower magnet to the crossbar between the shock mounts. Then glued the upper half to the body.

Well, straight outta the box, (add a 3s LIPO) the Trx was definitely intriguing! Verrrry capable, verrry nice looking, "enough" programming/tuning/aftermarket parts options, all around i absolutely love my Sport! I just haven't been able to find the right "phrase" or "words" to describe the capabilities i had witnessed....then, while scrolling IG one day, i realized "THAT's it!" This truck has CAJ“—…S!!!


LONG story short, i bought some TTN's, or, Tiny Truck Nuts! I opted for the blue variety, as my truck and i are very much alike, and i thank the whole "marriage" thing. Lol anyways, without further delay!

R.C. means both;Remote control, and Rock Crawler.

LMAO, nice nuts

Not to ignore the TTNís but what hitch is that? Do you pull anything with it?

Your rig is looking good brother! Go slow with the axle weight. Put some on then test. Then add more or take some off. Too much weight can effect your rig negatively . You want that fine balance. Keep up the great work!!!

Dude that looks sooo good! This is what I have been wanting to do to my blazer! Did you remove the front wheel wells too or just trim? Think you need a build thread with all the parts listed (with part numbers) lol. Like how you mounted the rear cage. Good job!!!

Edit* I see the front has the Samix shock towers too.

Sage advice right there.

I highly recommend the Samix front shock towers. The panhard mount that it provides is excellent.

Tested the new body and shock setup. Ended up cracking the body in 2 spots and frying my 5 year old esc. All in all it preformed better then with the blazer body. 34 degrees outside and Lexington donít mix well. Oh well. Itís not going to be pretty forever.

A little heart replacement and itís good to go again. Now just need to fix the cracks.

Not sure. I tipped and dropped onto its side from about 12Ē. Not a big deal though. It was a first year Mamba X, so itís about 5 years old. Been in about as many vehicles. Seen lots of snow, mud and jumps. Also been submerged more times I can count. It had a rough life.
Stole the one from my Rustler so I can still crawl, and ordered a new one last night.

Went to narrow the front bumper and accidentally cut off a couple of the welds that held it together so the front part of the bumper with the tow hooks ended up braking off after a couple of crawls...now just have a single metal tube bumper.

Big Bumpers and tow hooks look cool but I think performance and bitchin approach angles are cooler!

before

after



might end up drilling a hole in the frame rail just below the tube bumper to attach the tow hooks
