Default Kyosho mad force kruiser

Looks like I will be picking up one of these trucks after much debate. Anyone have experience with it? I am getting the nitro version.

Looking at your signature, I will say it is a fine addition to a fine fleet. I think you will be happy with it for sure!

Thanks bud. I'm really diggin the solid axle idea. The truck doesn't seem to have much of a following or support, hell even the local hobby store tried to convince me not to buy it, the usually try to convince me on something they have in stock......convenient. That being said does anyone know of any weak spots, even googleing the truck yields very little info.

The handling will be completely different than what your used to,

The madforce trucks are real quick as the design is very minimalist, making them very light for a 1/8 truck,

I've had around 6 madforces over the years, they rarely give bother and the stock engines make more than enough power,

You'll love it.

I had the electric version for a while. The truck never gave me any issues but I didn't care for the way it drive or handled. I was more accustomed to the independent suspension trucks and this thing just felt like driving a school bus.

Extremely quick, light weight for it's size and great brakes.. Stab the brakes and it would do instant front flips.. Great fun but hard on parts.

I've read somewhere that you should tear down the axles and inspect them cause one of the screws was too long and rubbed the dogbone till the dogbone broke? That is all I've ever heard bad about it. i studied all I could find on it cause I'm interested in getting one.
