As much as Iím not a Chevy fan a duramax is the better option. Or a 6.7 Ford. A monster truck needs a motor that is snappy. Both can handle the required power levels, plus they have better flowing heads with a lighter rotating assembly.


Haha Iím just giving you a hard time bud cause I own a 3500 Ram!

The diesel monster truck thing has been done before and itís a cooler concept than reality. Either way itíll be awesome to see something that looks like a truck and not some animal blowing smoke everywhere

Lol. Kinda figured you were partial to a Cummins. Itís kinda a tough pill to swallow suggesting a dmax when Iím a power stroke owner lol.

The past diesel monster truck is a Cummins. Pretty sure itís not even a common rail. Itís not very exciting to watch lol.

I donít think a diesel will ever be a snappy an alcohol motor with a blower on it but itís possible to make a diesel competitive if done right.

great build! I also use a mamba x and the 2400kv in my scx10.2, great combo. quick question, are there any voltage limits at these ttc comps? I find 3s is perfect for crawling with this motor but for a completion where speed is a factor 4s would probably be the better option.

I still have it. She was retired at the beginning of 2019 from competition (3 years undefeated in TTC events). Some of the durable bits went into a new rig, but the Truck, wheels, chassis and electronics are all together. Maybe she'll come out of retirement some day (ain't as good as it once was, but as good once as it ever was?). But I don't see her leaving my garage.

Hey! Any chance you'd be keen to print/send some matching decals? I'm so keen to try and build a hard body version of this!
