James H. Because they insist it is a DBXL because it shares a few parts with it lol. We are actually a few owners of MTXL's on the forum, me included. OP enjoy. Its hands down the greatest basher ever. It is purpose build for bashing and it will take a beating and then some without giving in. Get a metal servo saver, you will regret not doing so.

This one is very popular but Losi have made their own where you only get the actual servo saver and put into the steering mech.

Me an others run really heavy diff oil. 500k in the middle and 300k in both ends or 300k back 100k front, whatever takes you fancy. A heavy run will make the diff cups so hot you will consider getting alloy ones. I have yet to see one of the original ones melt tho. Try it out, you will be surprised at the difference it makes. You "new" truck has seen a lot of use. And you should probably take a look at how well the steering servos are alligned.
