As far as the XTM being bolt-in, I would imagine it is, but you need to make sure to get the correct shaft lenght.

I've not heard of two-chamber pipes. I've seen some that were adjustable, but that's it. I'm a little behind on the pipe scene right now. A good low-end pipe is the AE pipe. Not annodized, they are only about $18 and they will give an incredible amount of torque to just about any engine.

the O.S. .18 is a direct drop in, just needs a different header....

I'll be running it tomorrow if I manage to wake up in time to go grab me some fuel and a temp gun, filter oil, and maybe replacement turnbuckles... :lol:

have you run it yet? unless you are an excellent driver you wont need a more powerfull motor in that thing, i think you'll agree after you drive it in the dirt.

yep, I went for a boot with it the second day I got it... my street isn't big enough to really wind it out or anything, lol

gotta do some anti-snow work to it now....


but it is definitaly quick!

I put some 50 weight oil into the diff, so I want to test out the difference from the open diff it was before... and I'm gonna be picking up a bit stiffer springs too...

hopefully the glue/tape job I did on the geolandars holds up :lol:
then I gotta get me some decent pavement tires...

did you change the shock oil at all from stock?


all in all, it's a The North American beaver has a big tail fun little machine so far!
I wanna take it for a boot in the dirt, and a wide open paved space... it's easy to boot up and down the street... I've got a fair bit of practice with that from my 15T 2wd electric buggy with "slicks" :lol:
