why not just buy a 4-wd monster truck and just take out a dogbone and make it a 2wd truck. that way you can have any of the trucks 2wd and for some stuff the 2wd cant do, just put on the dogbone again and have a 4wd again.

I voted maximum mt pro. I think all of them would be pretty cool trucks but i like all of the hop ups on the maximum pro. I dont think u should get 2wd any ways. Get a mammoth,mgt, or savage and have some real fun and really get down and dirty in the rough stufff.[>:]

My MT2 is a great truck it like a T-Maxx but smaller and more durable.The only thing I have had go wronge with the truck is the diff cups but the are really cheap to replace.

The CEN MT-2 is a great truck. And there is extreamly little to do to make it 2 wheel drive. I use 2wd when I lower the wheels put smaller ones on and but my mini cooper top on. It run great in 2wd. It is faster aswell.

Hi, I can't say it's the best 2wd truck BUT!... the MRC THUNDER KING trucks are one of the best 2wd super8scale trucks EVER built. To the people that know about these 13+ year old designed kits know that these kits are a force to be reckoned with on race tracks and even bashing. The MRC kits were far ahead of there time and today you see other companys coming out with designs/concepts that that MRC had on ther kits many years before r/c was as popular as it is now. MRC is now no longer assembling any of there own designed kits anymore, because of costs they can not stay competitve.

Interestingly MRC is still advertising this kit in there web site.

Here are some examples of these rare kits.

STOCK NTK




MOD VERSIONS
