    Any reason they haven't added the XTM, Smartech & Firehammer? Even if its just the brand for now that would be nice? Hey that dang Traxxas got its own. J/k

    I think the mods here are much more responsive and open to suggestions here than the other place.
    Thanks for the ability to do things this way.
    I like how the onroad section is broken down.

    I just traded for an XTM buggy. One of the best trades that I've ever made! It has a firehammer tuned pipe, alum rear shock tower, alum rear knuckles, firehammer filter, and 23mm hex wheel adapters. This thing is amazing and I love to drive it! It has plenty of power but I can't wait to upgrade the engine. Right now I'm running the proline beadlocks with moab tires. It gives it a little more ground clearance but still has plenty of low end.--nate

    I have the xtm buggy and have had a ton of fun with it, i would say it is my most realible car, considering what i do to it, it spends most of it's time in the air.

    It would be nice if someone else would carry the motor mounts for the XTM, Smartech and Firehammer buggy's it's really hard to buy from the only company that does right now!:(

    Anyone know if the fg beetle conversion (the marder type, not the monster beetle) will bolt on to the XTM buggy? Also, what from the marder will NOT fit the clones?--nate

    I am gonna order them from Germany which is where he gets them. It's gonna cost me an extra $14 but worth it in my opinion. Ship time is supposed to be 8 days too. Not to bad....
