The Losi Monster Truck XL is a 1/5 scale beast that will demolish anything in its path with huge chevron pattern monster truck tires, a massive 36" long wheel base and 26" wide track width. This 1/5-scale offender comes fully ready to run, and ready to turn heads with speeds up to 30 MPH and a dirt slinging 4WD drive train based on the Desert Buggy XL. To manage the awesome power, the Monster Truck XL is equipped with AVC Technology and twin high voltage large-scale steering servos so you can drive with confidence.

Leaving a mark wherever you go is easy with heavy-duty monster truck tires, responsive aluminum front spindles, and viscous torque differentials that consistently deliver maximum power whenever you grab a handful of throttle on the included Spektrum DX2E transmitter. Large bore threaded shocks help to soften the big air landings and smooth out the bumps, and the extended chassis suspension arms give the Monster Truck XL an advantage over competitors. Get your own Monster Truck XL and show your friends how small their "big" trucks really are.

Don't be fooled by 'RTR' - this truck needs to be disassembled completely and assembled with loctite where necessary, or be prepared to spend more money on parts that fail because screws have worked themselves loose from vibration. There are several very weak areas of the truck that you should strengthen while you have it apart, otherwise they'll break immediately. I spent more money on this truck than any other R/C I've owned, and was pretty disappointed to learn that even more was required to keep it running. Losi skimped on a few crucial areas & went with cheap plastic parts guaranteed to fail. The radio is another area they decided to save money, so you'll want to replace that too. Bottom line, don't buy this truck unless you're prepared to spend several hundred bucks on top of the initial purchase price to get some mandatory upgrades, including a tuned pipe. I've decided to get rid of mine after a year of owning it and running it for maybe an hour total. The engine started about 25% of the time. If you have the dough to spend and really want to try 1/5, do yourself a favor and get the electric version. Oh, and the aftermarket support is virtually zero. If it weren't for the parts shared with the DBXL, it would be impossible to find any upgrades, and by the looks of things, I'd bet this model is discontinued very soon (Amain is out of stock, so is Amazon). Losi support was pretty much nonexistant.

Overall my experience with this truck was awful, and I feel like I flushed 2K town the toilet.

Great truck........Almost

After one short run the muffler worked itself off manifold and burned a hole into body before i could get it back to me.

The next run saw rear drive shaft come off. Then it finally dawned on me , this thing is shaking itself to destruct.

I fixed drive shaft ( replaced ) and tightened every single screw and bolt with the addition of Blue lock tight.

It's a shame these beautiful trucks come like this . From now on lock tight any rig before using and frequently after use.

HI I HAD THIS TRUCK FOR A YEAR NOW I CONVERTED IT TO BRUSHLESS AND I LOVE IT.I USED ALL THE LOSI DBXL ALUMINUM UPGRADES ON THIS TRUCK.I GOT THE BRUSHLESS CONVERSION KIT FOR THE LOSE DBXL GAS BUGGY FROM DAVE'S DISCOUNT MOTORS AND USED A 11T PINION GEAR.NOTE IF YOU USE ANY DBXL ALUMINUM UPGRADES FOR THIS TRUCK FOR THE CENTER DRIVE TRAIN. LIKE THE CENTER DIFF HOUSING AND THE REAR SHAFT BRACKET BRACE """"NEED TO BE SHIMMED WITH METAL WASHERS TO LIFT THEM UP""" THE DBXL CENTER ALUMINUM UP-GRADES PARTS ARE A LITTLE SHORTER THEN THE STOCK MTXL PARTS.BUT THEY WILL WORK IF YOU SHIM THEM OUT WITH METAL WASHERS.THE BRUSHLESS CONVERSION KIT FOR THE DBXL GAS BUGGY ""FROM DAVE'S DISCOUNT MOTORS"" FITS PERFECT ON THIS TRUCK.THE ALUMINUM MOTOR MOUNT FITS RIGHT IN THERE NO PROBLEM.GRATE CONVERSION FOR THE MTXL.NOTE BE SURE TO USE YOUR STOCK MTXL PARTS FOR A GUIDE SO YOU KNOW HOW MANY METAL WASHERS TO USE FOR SHIMS TO GET THE PROPER HEIGHT for the CENTER DRIVE SHAFTS!!!.IF YOU USE THE CENTER ALUMINUM DBXL UP-GRDE PARTS FOR THE CENTER DRIVE LINE!!!.
