Shaft-drive clod chassis? :idea:
Sticking TXT-2 transmission into CPE Time Warp chassis does sound cool I have to say 8) still my heart is set on a tube based chassis trouble is not many to choose from at all.

Anyone have RECENT dealings with John Boyer? I assume he has made a tube chassis based around TXT?

I wonder if MattZilla makes a TXT based tube chassis?

Keep the ideas coming guys :P

I've always preferred the old school monster trucks to todays tubers.

You could build your own chassis, that way you'd know that it was built to your liking. You could go old school like Bennet or ESP, give your build some nostalgia, but with your own unique improvements.
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

MattZilla got back to me he sent me photos of the different monster truck tube designs he has made to date. Now to decide which one :?

I am most tempted by the first one Lue (mattzilla) can modify cage to fit TXT-2 gearbox and axles. Justin has a really nice Full Boar 2.0 wrap I could get Lue to powder coat the chassis orange...

I like the 1st and 3rd ones. I didn't actually know that Lue made MT chassis.

Yeah I like the third one too but for the life of me cant figure out where the shocks go 98 percent of the cages he sells are crawler type so very few build threads for me to go off.

Justin had Lue make him a custom tube chassis it is in the shaft driven section Virginia Giant build thread that is how I found out about MattZilla making custom frames.

Maybe it's for Cants or link mounted shocks?

Not sure if Alex has any contact details for him, I got hold of him by sending him a FB message. His name is Lue Lee.

Thanks for the pm GraveTXT, did you end up contacting him about getting a chassi and price point.

I just bought some custom steel upper diff gears for my crazy txt-1 build

I can pm you the guys info if you feel you ever need a set.

No problem yes I have struck a deal with Lue I will PM you the price he has quoted. Basically I will be posting him TXT-2 gearbox and axles plus TXT battery tray and some CPE body mounts.

Lue will then modify the chassis in photo number one to fit TXT transmission and battery tray and body mounts. I wont have the hassle of battery and body mount fitment then...
