Further Description/Back Story big red, Is a fully customized souped up tamiya txt-1. I bought it used online as a stock tamiya txt-1, but it had been converted to lateral shocks instead of the original cantilever suspension. It had a 540 55t crawling motor. Mounted to a home made motor mount connected to the transmission. I removed all that bought a brand new tamiya txt/juggernaut transmission. I had to do some customizing to fit both 550 can motors, because the original transmission was made for dual 540 brushed motors, custom hand made aluminum servo mounts i had the chassis plates powder coated in semi matte hot rod red. hand painted clodbuster rims to match. Fully adjustable 4link suspension with traxxas ball ends custom aluminum steering rods front and rear. It has a traxxas emaxx dual motor evx2 water proof esc its mostly a shelf queen display truck just because i love it so much and tamiya txt-1 trucks are discontinued. But it does run just fine this truck stands out every were it goes as opposed to any other rc monster truck it is classified as a 1/10 scale but in size comparison it is just as large or larger than most 1/8 scale vehicles its loud you can hear it coming you can hear the massive gears turning and the oversized mudslingers are very loud tire as well.
