Monster Truck Insanity – Constructing the TLR Tuned LMT

Hey all and Pleased Thursday!

I wished to share the place I’m at with my TLR Tuned Losi LMT package and share some general construct impressions up to now.

In my 30+ years within the interest, I’ve one way or the other by no means constructed a Losi package earlier than. Kinda wild after I take into consideration that, however it’s true!

The directions are properly laid out, and every step of the construct has all the things enclosed in pertinent baggage. Every bit of {hardware} wanted has a scale to measurement drawing in every step, and that is very good to make use of when items of {hardware} may be comparable in measurement to one another.

The match and end of the carbon fiber chassis is completely trick. I had considered portray it with a faint sweet crimson to match my eventual paint scheme, however received spooked as a result of the CF simply seems to be too good to mess with IMO.

I did paint the 4 hyperlink bars in Tamiya TS Purple, with no primer. I ought to’ve primed it first because the feint grey on the machined hyperlinks took lots of crimson to get the colour to pop. The tip outcome appeared good although!

A be aware on the diffs- I truly didn’t fill mine with 100k oil as is included and advisable by Losi. I used Cow RC Udder Butter as a grease. The reason is is like I my entrance and rear diffs open for racing functions and I really feel the truck simply handles higher like this (my RTR model has open diffs with no oil), however it’s all private desire (hey, that’s why you construct a package!).

A pair suggestions for these of you constructing one in all these-

  • Open up each saggy for a given lettered step and organize issues this manner.  When you full a lettered step completely, do that with the following one. Some {hardware} is break up in numerous baggies and it may be a bit complicated in any other case. This alleviates that.
  • Be sure that the hex driver you’re utilizing is an efficient one with no rounding off of the tip, as a number of of the chassis screws will put up good resistance as you thread them in, and also you don’t wanna strip a screw. I used to be utilizing an outdated wrench and located this out the arduous approach.

Alright, again to the constructing and (quickly) portray!

April 2nd is my first race day of 2023 so the truck might want to full by then. Full report and construct particulars after that!
