MRC Thunder King - World Scale (vintage)


Here is a video shot yesterday of my recently restored MRC Thunder King. I've been working on getting this +12yr old truck back up and running again (thread) after it sat around for years! I will soon be making additional changes to make it run better, but so far I am very happy with its performance. This is one huge 1/8 scale truck. Hope you enjoy it .


PS: Video came out dark since it was shot after sunset.

Edit: Video deleted to upload new one.

Dude, that was the coolest sh*t I've seen in a while. Those lil trucks can really haul tail. I had no idea they could move out like that.

Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed the vid. Yeah this truck is running faster than I had expected. Not bad for a vintage model. It may gain some more speed after the next set of changes.

Nice video.. I have one.. I have a nov. esc on it that will handle ten cell nigh pack or 3s lipo.. It runs pretty fast On my 9cell 4200mAh pack.
It truly is indestructible or at least I have never broken anything on the truck. Dual servos for steering and two nice brushed motors. It would be sweet to install the metal trans and put a brushless mamba monster in it.
If any one is interested in one pm me.
