Hi guys, I was looking for parts for my Thunderking when I found this Post/Site! Well, I am amazed that the Thunderking is still a popular truck! I have owned mine for 12 years. It have never given me a problem. I take it to the beach a few times a year. I have a great deal of RC cars, all of which I use on a daily basis (I am a pharmaceutical engineer, you need to relax on you breaks or someone could die) but my thunderking has always been a subject of worry to me. I have not been able to find parts for it in years, but considering that nothing ever breaks, it really hasn't been a problem. I do know my gears are in bad shape and just ordered the all alluminum gears for it. I am looking forward to getting the new parts, although the Thunderking will be sitting on its shelf until June. What kind of lube should I use on the gears? With brass gears you dont need any but alluminum may wear a bit much. Any one else have them?
What is different about your ThunderKings? Did the come raised like that? Did you do that? Mine is bone stock, right down to the motors, but I really like what you did to them!
Where did you get all those parts? Did you make them? That truck looks awesome!
Heres a shot of mine that I had on hand:
