Overview
The micro truck that started it all. The Goliath has that scale monster truck appearance, but handles like a race car. The perfect sport truck, the Goliath is capable of racing on a track or running in your yard. With its 8 inch wheel base the Goliath can run in the smallest areas.

The MMT chassis is a 1/18-scale Monster Truck chassis with a cantilever type suspension. Unlike other monster trucks of it's size, this is an all out performance truck!

Frequently Asked Questions
1) What type of motor does the MMT use and will one be included in the kit?
The MMT chassis is designed to use any standard 540 sized motor available on the market today. Yes our kits will include a motor. However we will be including a 550 sized motor. This size motor produces more torque for climbing and draws fewer amps for longer run times.

2) When will the MMT be available?
This is our most asked question. The MMT chassis should be available soon. We are currently awaiting the completion of a few minor parts and are working on the artwork and instructions for the kit. As soon as those are done we will begin shipping kits.

3) What type of motor does the MMT use and will one be included in the kit?
The MMT chassis is designed to use any standard 540 sized motor available on the market today. Yes our kits will include a motor. However we will be including a 550 sized motor. This size motor produces more torque for climbing and draws fewer amps for longer run times.

4) I first read about the MMT in Issue 86 of Xtreme RC Cars Magazine a while back. Is this the same truck? If so how close will the production kit be to the custom built truck in XRC?
Actually we got together with the designer and creator of the original MMT chassis, Dave Palacios, to build our version of the MMT. We used his truck as a prototype for our truck. In doing so, we didn't want to stray away from the original design very much if at all. Working with Dave we have done exactly that. With the exception of a few molded parts and body, the truck is almost an identical replica of the original prototype.

5) What type of electronics are needed for the MMT?
As mentioned before, we've kept the design of the MMT chassis very close to Dave's prototype with a few minor changes. Like the original, standard sized electronic speed controls, receivers and motor will fit fine in the MMT. However, we decided that some of you may not wish to use a mini servo like Dave did on the original. So we will be including a second servo mount in the kit that will allow the use of a standard sized servo. Now you will be able to choose whether you want to use a mini or standard sized servo.

6) The MMT doesn't look very small. How big is the MMT exactly?
The MMT chassis stands roughly the same height as a standard R/C transmitter (without antenna) or about 7 1/2-inches and weighs approximately 3 lbs 8 oz.

7) What type of wheels and tires does the MMT use?
The MMT chassis will accept most standard rear 2.2 inch stadium truck rims on all four corners. Therefore the MMT will also accept most off-road tires made to fit a 2.2 sized rim.

8) How much suspension travel and ground clearance does the MMT have?
Our truck has the most suspension travel and ground clearance of all the "micro" sized trucks on the market today. The MMT chassis is capable of at least 5-inches of articulation. That's enough suspension travel to put one tire on top of a stock T-Maxx tire and still keep the other three tires on the ground! As for ground clearance, a monster truck isn't a truck if it doesn't have ground clearance. The MMT chassis has everyone else beat there too. With two inches of clearance, climbing isn't much of a problem.

9) What type of batteries does the MMT require?
In Xtreme RC Cars Magazine Dave used only a 4-cell sub-C battery pack. Since the article was published Dave has been able to fit a 5-cell hump pack without any problems. This size battery provides plenty of power and torque with long run times. We know a sub-c 5-cell isn't common so we've decided to make one available separately. We've also done some testing with different battery configuration and have found that a 6-cell battery pack will fit as well.
