Hi all, haven't been around in a while, but wanted to start modding my MZM. I found a website about 2 months ago that had some really wild bodies for the MZM (Escalade, Ram, Hummer, F-150, etc) these appeared to be simple replacement bodies with built in mounts and everything, but the problem is ... I cant find the website anymore and I dont remember the name. Anyone know what these are ??

Next, REALLY want to buy aluminum rims ... where is the best place to buy these online and who has the biggest selection?? Would like tires too!

Any help would be appreciated.

I also just picked up 2 SSMT. They are on sale thru today 12/03 at TRU for 14.95!! So far, great fun with this cheap little truck. I used the high speed motor from the upgrade kit with the green pinion. Red pinion had no torque at all. Got the spare for parts as I would like to convert that to full propo like I've seen on this site.

Great site and great info as usual, thanks guys!
Mike

if you find that website for the bodies for the mzm let us all know... but
i believe DB racing makes certain lexan bodies for the monster that come with clips if you want, also if you check the galleries a lot of people use OL autoscale bodies and fit them onto their monsters... the other thing to do is make your own, buy some models and attach the clips on em...

as for the wheels and tires, you can try the bay, the shop here also has a lot of wheels and tires in stock as well...unfortunately there aren't that many pictures...

hope that helps

Wheels (http://shop.tinyrc.com/home.php?cat=275)

Tires, you may have to scroll down. (http://shop.tinyrc.com/home.php?cat=278)

For the wheels and tires the http://shop.tinyrc.com/ has been a very good choice for alloy 3racing, GPM, and AVM Monster wheels. A good selection for the tires too, both GPM and Kyosho tires with different tread patterns. I lean toward the Kyosho tires myself as they seem to work best. The shop has added some pictures for the wheels.

I do make a selection of light weight bodies to fit the MZM and SSMT.
I am also a big fan of the alloy wheels for the MZM, got to have the right tires and wheels for the full effect and performance...


This is my MZM with GPM six spoke wheels and Topcad tires, traction for the rear, ribbed for the front, gives it the buggy look I was going for.

This is my SSMT24/MS with 1/18th scale LosiMini-Smasher tires, they really beefed up this truck....The 23 window VW is not available for sale yet, this is only a prototype body at this point.

This is the 70's VW body that is available, done up in "Herbie" paint on MZM with SSMT wheels

and in the "General Flea" paint on a SSMT

"Tahoe" as a blank

The "Tahoe" works very well on a full modded SSMT
