Default new kyosho mad crusher!

hey, I just returned to rc after a 3 year break, looking for a new monster truck, " had to be nitro" I just bought a kyosho mad crusher. I have never owned a kyosho before but i'm very happy with it so far, I was wondering if anyone else has the mad crusher or mad force cruiser nitro and how happy with it you are. also what are some upgrades for the mad crusher ? thanks for reading!

I just purchased the mad crusher today. It wont be here for two weeks but im super excited try it out. This is my first nitro in about seven years, brushless is cool but just isnt the same as having a nitro so im excited to get back out there. Ive owned savages, 1/8 scale buggies and a monster gt in the past so i wanted to get something different. I like how it comes with everything to get you going, i just had to buy nitro and two spare glowplugs. Not to mention i love the body it comes with! Also curious if there is an aftermarket out there for it yet.

No. there really is no after market unless you want to mod the few things they offered for the mad force / mad force kruser or the foxx. At least thats what ive been doing.

I hit a wall with the mad force the other day and broke the front axle tube, n lost the front driveshaft. It was my fault as I was trying to adjust my throttle with the tires on the ground, lesson learned right? lol I love driving this truck as solid axle monster trucks just seem so much cooler, gonna break in the mad crusher next.

Considering adding this truck to the collection , I use my rc's a lot in the sand at the beach, do you think the chain drive on this truck would be an issue in those conditions?

Honestly i dont think it would be an issue. the chain itself dosent seem to really use any lube so i dont see the sand really sticking to it. Ide imagine with basic upkeep it would work just fine. I play with mine in a gravel quarry / concrete / asphalt plant that has sand mounts and havent had any issues from it so far. I just shake it off real good then hit it with a brush and a can of compressed air when i done to get it all cleaned up.

I bought one new, not too fond of it. The suspension design, isnt my favorite by any means...Id rather have the previous model, without the panhard link setup...
