    Differences between 2 FG Beetles?

    FG Off-road Beetle vs FG Monster Beetle?
    What are the differences besides wheels/tires and maybe ride height? I can't tell... I have the chance to get an Off-road Beetle but I always wanted a Monster Beetle, if they are the same then i might go for it and end up getting Monster Wheels down the road.
    Thanks!

    RE: Differences between 2 FG Beetles?

    I think the only difference is one has 8 schocks and side mt rails and mt tires. Because ones the monster beetle and the other is monster beetle pro. the pro is the mt setup with beetle body and the other is the marder with mt wheels and beetle body.

    The monster beetle is a marder with the bigger tires and the bug body.

    The off-road beetle is a marder wtih the bug body and the undertray. The body is a different version of the bug and will not work with the monster tires unless you cut off the fenders.

    If you want to convert the beetle, you will have to remove the undertray get a new body and wheels. Probably will need different body posts also. May be cheaper for you to just get the Monster Beetle up front.
    Large scale is the only way to go!

    RE: Differences between 2 FG Beetles?

    Thanks fort he input so far but I think I was not clear enough in my initial question. Here are the links so the models I speak of.

    Beetle Off-roa

    and the other one is pretty much the MT with a beetle shell but the link is to an MT.

    I think the only difference might be the wheels and may be the gearing since the truck runs taller tires and body mounts.

    RE: Differences between 2 FG Beetles?

    Both the beetle and the MT are the same platform. The MT has different side plates and the tires. Gears are probably different.

    Besides that you may need some body posts and a different front shock tower.

    I swear between Noyb and Buzz, Home Depot has got to be running low on storage shelves. I think you guys are keeping that company in business!
