Well its a truggy (buggy with big wheels) and its really low. So u could prolly race it and do ok but i think i have heard that it is not wide so that makes it bad at handelin. Its prolly mainly a basher.

dont buy the nitro quake find some place where u can get a tq (Thunder Quake) cause the thunder quake is fairly reliable really wide and quick just make sure u pump up your tires....that was my mistake :-/

but seriously i dont know much about the nitro quake all i know is that its tiny...and i think a foot stool and bashing are good uses for it......want me to run it over with my TQ for ya it'll be compact after wards... pics of my TQ on the forum under "some serious issues" before and after pictures of when i crasheded it...

Jer~

thats funny tidus ... especially when the nitro quake and the thunder quake are basically the same truck ..... only major difference is that the nitro quake is only a single speed ... and i believe has smaller tires and maybe a hair narrower .... but other than that they use the same chassis ... bulkheads , diff cases ....

don't think you will "run" over a nitro quake that easily ....

LMAO tidus just like WSW-WYATT-EARP said they are the same. Both are the exact same except the tires( same size just different treads), body, and single speed.

just another case of a nOOb thinking his new truck is the biggest baddest truck on earth ... nothing wrong with that tidus ... we all did it when we got our first truck ... but before you go and bash another truck or something someone wants to get or is looking into .. do your homework on it ... and make sure that you are giving the facts ...

the tq is a nice truck ... you will enjoy it .. and you will hate it when it breaks ... WELCOME TO THE HOBBY !!!!!

The Nitro Quake is fast for a single speed monster truck.
