I have been enjoying and building this truck for a couple years. This is the only (monster truck) I care to play with anymore because the others feel crippled compared to it. I wanted to share some things I have done to it that made a big difference for me. First was the differentials and spur gear upgrades (originals exploded). I went with the steel 44t spur, 18t pinion, and Fioroni differentials (front, center, and rear). Next was the M2C game changer mega brace (milled to fit BLX185) and aluminum top plate (too much flex is bad for differential). I went with 60,000 cst on the center diff fluid and 30,000 in front and rear. I like the fluid thick for power slides and stunts. Shocks fluids are as factory recommended and tightened for the added weight. Now for the part that makes pretty people cry… powed by the Arrma BLX 185 with 2050KV and a HiTEC HS-7955TG. Battery tray was too small so I cut it and shoved a trimmed Arrma 6s tray into it. I did not like the body mounts that came with it so I drilled the shock towers and put Arrma body posts front and back. I switch between Backflips and Dboots exabyte tires depending on condition. I can run 6s but I don’t enjoy it as much as 4s. It handles like a street car in the dirt!
