Hi Guys, this is my first RC build log so bare with me! I have installed or have the parts on order for my 2018 ARRMA KRATON v3 Monster Truck 6s BLX.

I got in a nice set of 6MM shock towers from - Just bash it. I will post more picture ones everything is installed in a few days but in the meantime, here are a few attachments of some hop-ups.. More to come.

I've lost one of these too. One drop, no more, of blue loctite on the outer thread of the hub each time you have them off. That will stop the loosening and loss of the nut. I killed three wheels before I started doing this. Too much loctite and you'll have a swear fest trying to get them off. Answer is "experience"😉

Good buy. Be sure to set your end points so you don't overload the servo. Not gonna explain, search the forum and you'll find it mentioned many times. Now go bash and come back with a great story of backflips, front flips and huge air!

After going back and forth with a different off road tires. I wanted either the Dbotts #Copperheads or the Dboots #backflips!
After talking to a lot of #Arrma bashers, THEY said they liked the backflips the best for the for a 6s rig! They will not ballon as much as the copperhead will! Also, I should have my T-BONE Racing red front Thrasher bumper installed! More Pictures to come!!

No but its better then any other bumper on the market in my opinion.. Its saved my rig a few times. Cant wait to put on my red front Thrasher bumper to match up with my body!

Gotta agree to disagree then. My RPM has been indestructible, where I went through half a dozen T Bones in the same amount of tine.
