I've got the Monster truck as well. It does run well.

You must have made a good job of her to get her going so quickly.
Cheers

Wise choice Russ :)

Most hobbyists do not understand just how neccesary the running in period is on these small motors :lol:

WHEN YOU COULD OF CONSIDERED NITRO UPGRADES YOU COULD OF CONSIDERED ELECTRIC START INSTEAD OF PULL
MY THUNDER TIGER SSK V2 HAS EVERY CONCIEVABLE UPGRADE POSSIABLE BUT NOW LIVES LIFE ON TOP OF WARDROBE DUE TOO MYSELF LIVING LIFE IN A WHEELCHAIR FOR COMPETITIONS YOU ARE REQUIRED TO CLIIMB A SET OF STAIRS FOR THE RC CONTROLLERS THIS HAD A BUCKET LOAD OF MONEY SPENT ON IT.

Hello mate, that is a bit bad that the competitions you should be able to enter you can't because of access problems. Surely that is discrimination against you as the club surely has to provide services and access for all.

I would look into this if I was you.

i finished building my nitro about 18 months ago, took it up to a big empty sandy beech and was having fun running it all over the place when a young boy came over and stood beside me watching it, i was running at full throttle coming towards me, the boy was on my right so i was running it to my left just as it was about to pass us the boy moved to my left, well the rest is history. the young lad was perfectly OK but the truck needs extensive repairs and in the garage its stayed, IE: IN THE WARDROBE. so if anyone's interested in buying a well cared for nitro truck in perfect A1 condition you can get in touch via the PM system

PS: the buyer takes full responsibility for any damaged goods bought after the wonga has been exchanged. :D :D :D
I'm a perfectionist so it will look good, I'm not a fanatasist but it will still look good, my tiger crew are all individualists so they do it there way, yours are all individualists so let them do it there way to
