I own the FG MT & my friend own the FG MB, from what I noticed they are completely identical beside of course the body & the body mounts, all the rest, chassis, gears, wheels, engine etc are the same…

As far as I know, the monster beetle is FG buggy based and the monster beetle pro is FGMT based.

Monster beetle pro is based on FGMT (as previously stated)with reinforcements on the chassis by longitudinal side aluminum panels and bars and 8 shocks setup , whereas Monster beetle is based on Marder

I think that beetle pro you linked is more race minded. The monster beetle also has 4 shocks just like the regular MT and MT hummer.

A already said, the MT beetle (non-pro) and te regular MT are exactly the same. Beetle has a spoiler, regular MT does not.

I have both those FG's in your pics. They are nearly identical. Obvious stuff like Front A arms are different and gearing is different but for the most part they are identical. I like my marder better....it breaks a lot less.
