Ya I thought that it wouldn't be too easy. Lol. I'm pretty sure that I have the first gen MT because it's like 8 years old. Mine has the 23cc engine in it. Down the road I might put the 32cc engine in it.@rawb4291
Unless the weedwacker uses the same engine you find in your RC, you will need to fabricate all of the attachments necessary (clutch housing, engine mount and or braces). There will be too much involve to make it worth it in my opinion (there are so many engines available that are straight drop in).
Well i forgot to mention that it does have a upgraded air filter and muffler.That drivetrain must be new with such a small engine.
Wow still have that 23 on that truck.
It will be night and day from a 23 to a 32 full crank engine w a pipe, some minor port work and a 8k clutch spring, to unleash all that power.
Well, I just got it from a friend who had it sitting in his room for that long. When he first got it he crashed it a couple times. He never run it after that because he was scared to break it again. Lol. But I've driven it a few times and only broke the upper suspension arm. ( from crashing into a tree) but if something breaks I'm replacing the plastic parts with the aluminum ones.Interesting to hear from someone having the truck for such considerable time.
So, what things continuously break, or every so often?
Its weak point and what have you done to make the truck bash proof?
(or lets say, at least reliable to run a few tanks and have some fun...)
I just don't see a 23cc motor being able to move the MT very well lol I got a V3 MT last week, I broke in the 32cc motor really well, tuned it, and it has some impressive performance entirely stock but I'm looking forward to installing a tuned pipe on it, from the videos the tuned pipe gives it damn near close to double the powerYa I thought that it wouldn't be too easy.

I was given a 2WD Dunerunner with a 25cc CY in it a while back.I just don't see a 23cc motor being able to move the MT very well lol I got a V3 MT last week, I broke in the 32cc motor really well, tuned it, and it has some impressive performance entirely stock but I'm looking forward to installing a tuned pipe on it, from the videos the tuned pipe gives it damn near close to double the power
Thanks for the advice but this isn't my first 1/5Sorry the screen on my phone was blocked by an ad. Lol I meant replace the servos all of them and whatever else breaks after that just replace it with a new stout part ,sorry for the messed up writing in the first message,hope you have fun with your new truck and the advice you get off of this site is awesome!!!
I got ya man didn’t mean any disrespect ,I didn’t know you had other 1/5 scales ,I was just tryin to help and ya I know the hey and cry are crap that’s why I said I would put a zenoah in it but I was just curious if the cy was better then the hy because I’ve heard that a bunch of times but have always wondered cause in my 1st truck the xt I have I put every power upgrade you could on it and I beat the shit out of it and it still runs strong and has the stock 30cc hy ,I think they are just hit or miss but I’m just waiting for it to go so I can throw a zenoah in it,and the wheel adapters,I have to get them for my XT,can I still get them that cheap?thanks for any help and once I’m done with mine I’ll throw up some pics ,I found a guy in California that makes complete cages for the XT’s I mean like he will make it look like a full cage like they run on those buggy’s with the big bores in them and I love that look and I could never find anyone who made them ,I was about to buy a little stick welder and make my own but he’s gonna make them and start producing them ,and after the xt he said he would work on the mt and so on,he will make 3 versions one to fit my truck with a side pipe,one for people with stock exhaust and one with people who have a rear exit like a jet pro which is freakin awesome but as soon as mine is done I’m gonna paint or prob powder coat it then I’ll post pics and his info,sorry for the book I wrote, lolThanks for the advice but this isn't my first 1/5
CY and HY are both crap that's why I run Zenoah in my other car.
This one is just something to muck around with.
BTW You don't have to pay big money for wheel adaptors.
King Motor and Rovan wheel hexes fit straight on MT , TT and DR axles and are about $3 each.
