MattZilla Mantis Rock Crawler by Lee Briggs

MattZilla Mantis Rock Crawler by Lee Briggs

The MattZilla RC Works Mantis that Lee Briggs sent us pix of is a rolling wishlist of rock crawler goodies! Axial Wraith axles with Beef Tubes, GripFab lockers, and Axial Racing HD gears put the power down from the Team Novak Havoc Pro ESC and Speed Passion 10.5t motor. For extra reliability Lee employs a SuperShafty Bombproof transmission supported by Hot Racing and Robinson Racing parts. Suspension consists of gMade Piggyback (rear) and XD Aeration (front) shocks, a Dlux Fab Sporty upper link/servo mount up front, Blue Monkey RC trailing arms and Ultra 4 rear truss mount axle support out back. Tying it all to the trail are Gear Head RC 2.2 CAC EZ-Loc Beadlock Wheels with Pit Bull Rock Beast 2 tires and Crawler Innovations Single Stage Closed Cell foams.
