My 1st RC-MGT 8.0 Picture Build Thread and First Video! First Released: November 2008

Think I went overboard? Lol Noobs...

This was Before I knew that Aluminum parts WASNT the way to roll... unless I was building a Shelf Queen

RC ADVENTURES - Episode 1 - MEDiC'S MONSTER MGT 8.0 4X4 RC MONSTER TRUCK (9 min 56 sec)

I thought I would post some pics here for you to see how the build went. Please forgive me as some may be out of order, but I think over all, you may get the picture ;-)

1) New Cooling Head - Nova Racing - Single Alloy Carved aluminum - 25 % cooler I find - Runs about 200c

2) Dual Fuel Tank setup - T Formation... Still in testing stages, but so far, so good.

3) Chrome Roll Cage and Fuel Lines

4) Optional Aluminum Steering Package

5) Waterproofed Servo's - Sealed with Silicone, Green Slime, and Blue elecrtical tape

6) RCX Shocks with Piggy back Resivoirs.... Yep, they're functioning

7) Aluminum Aero-strength Alloy Control Arms (Upper and Lower)

8) Alloy Shock Mounts and Body Pins

9) Vented Steel Racing Disk Brake

10) Add a "non bashing body" just for pictures sake....

11) And add a couple of lights...

12) Check out the clearance now!!

13) Now just to attach this big Mudders

I have mounted the MASHER tires, and have some pics for all you crazy MGT'rs out there!!

Here we go...

Without Body, Just mounted...

With body...oh man... It's a BEAST!

way to much aluminum just remember you hit a tree their goes
hundreds of dollars of aluminum all bent , it's an MGT not show car and two
gas tanks isnt a good idea, your just wearing the engine down faster.
that's why they have a certain amount of CC's so you don't over heat
the engine. besides that it looks great! also have mgt's great trucks.

Looking good.

Easy to get carried away on the ally parts. I had a revo that went the same way, now I've got a FG monster and i have to keep resisting the temptation of ally upgrades on that. Now i justify it by only buying them i need to because of a break. Surprising how much you can break in a day when you try .
