The most fun Ive had for $ 15.00.....

Sorry if this is a little off topic but -

This is a Micro RCer 4X4 monster truck. I put in a CBP 340 mah pack (170 x 2P).

It has twice the speed. Burns out on dirt and spits up tiny stones. It wheelies on carpet! Climbs 35 degree dirt hills! It does 360s! Jumps!

My son and I built a small dirt track in the back about 2x3 feet. I'm building another one and we are going to race.

The pack was for my acrobipe but it didnt work out.

Best of all, run time is about 2.5 hours WOT or 2 days of fun for my son.

I tried and it would with a little mod. But I kinda like it looking like the Mars Lander for now

As soon as I burn out the motors, the electrics go into a bit plane conversion of a guillow indoor FF.

I'm moving this to the Cars section of the forum. They could use some traffic over there.

cheers

i got it at toysrus. the brand is micro RC. yes it is fully steerable. left, right, forward and reverse. it is not digitally proportional though.
