What a great truck had only minor problems with grub screws but have since fixed with locktite blue, right front wheel had chrome missing not worried about that , this monster truck really packs a punch for the price you cant go wrong just make sure you check all screws and nuts if you buy one you wont be disapointed so far i am very happy.I brought this truck, it doesn't come with any instructions at all, just a book of exploded diagrams, but its pretty straight forward once you work out where to mount the receiver and get it all tuned in. The motor took a few turns to fire the first time, but once it was running it runs great. The truck really hammers and will catch you out in a confined space. The disc brake system is close to useless, it barely stops the truck out of the box, you'll need to spend some time working on it to get it to pull up at all, even then its pretty average for how hard the truck goes, well under braked!
As a result of the power and weak brakes I tapped a garden bed wall at home and ripped the entire left hand front wheel, carrier and steering arms completely off, it was a big mistake of mine, I was a little surprised at how easily it all came off as it wasn't a very big hit. The biggest problem here is that HK has no parts available to fix my truck right now they're all on back order and we know how that goes. The upside is I am told this truck is a copy of the FG Monster and the Rovan Big Monster, so their parts I am told will fit this truck. I have ordered alloy front uprights and a front disc brake system etc for now as I am hoping they'll be stronger and steer better, and the brakes might actually stop this thing.
Overall I think this truck is still great value for someone justGot this truck, it goes together and starts very easily. There is no getting started manual, just exploded diagrams but everything is pretty self explanatory. Have not driven it a heap, just run it around the yard a couple of times. Its really loud, so waiting to get out and drive it somewhere where there are no people. Only unusual thing I have found is the car does not free roll when you push it. You have to give it a good hard push and the gears actually move but not the clutch. Not sure what the go with that is, anyone have any ideas? Going to check it out on Google right now to see what I find.
