Available in two versions Monster Truck or Truck
This is a high spec model that not only is high quality and pro built but is also highly upgradeable. This model is not to be confused with the entry level RC cars, this is a proper RC hobby racing machine! These models are kitted out with 2.4Ghz wheel type controllers. Fitted with Aluminium centre drive shaft, high spec waterproof electronic speed control, aluminium capped oil filled shocks, performance differentials, aluminium radio tray and much more, the Bug Crusher is in a league of its own.
As standard the Bug Crusher comes with a high precision 540 motor, waterproof speed controller and 7.2V 1800mah Tamiya type battery pack. This setup gives more than enough power and speed for any serious racer but if you are the kind of person that likes to take things to the extreme then you can upgrade your model with a brushless kit. With the brushless motor, ESC and Li-po battery the truck will go ridiculously quick and will take some real skill to control. These upgrades are available as optional extras at the top of this page, if you add these to your basket please note they will not come fitted so you will need to fit yourself. The upgrade kit contains 1 x high power brushless motor, 1 x brushless ESC, 1 x 11.1V 2200mah LiPo battery and 1 x LiPo battery charger.

SPRING LOADED FRONT AND REAR BUMPERS
This model comes fitted with spring loaded front and back bumpers that can help to avoid damage in the event of a crash.
I have had this truck a while now & I can honestly say I don't regret buying this one little bit. This is a great entry level monster truck for anyone getting into the RC scene. if you love monster trucks you will love this. It has a good speed on it for a brushed version & handles very nicely. it is fairly robust as well & I have only had to replace a front suspension arm but I did crash it quite hard. the parts are easy to come by & are cheap as well. You can always find upgrade parts as well. I have upgraded the NIMH battery for a longer running time, Its a great basher around wooded areas & parks as well. This truck is more robust than the higher grade RC's you can buy & I can say that honestly as I have owned a higher brand & had to send it back. With this truck you wont need to do anything like that. Sadly I have now lost this truck to my 7 year old daughter who loves this & believe me she has given this truck some abuse & again the truck has been solid throughout.
Customer service is also excellent with very quick delivery as well & they are very helpful to & give you recommendations. I have bought 3 other RC from this site & never had any issue. I only hope they can increase their variety in the future.
