it works very well it jumps great at the track and on the straights it has an advantage over the other trucks.

Dude, you are a lot more patient than me. I pull of wheels, receiver, and airfilter. Put a zip lock over the carb, and let the water hose have at it. When its completely sprayed off I hit it with my compressor to blow all the water off. Then I give it a light coat of WD 40 and hit it one more time and call it a day. About once a month I tear it down and clean the bearings out, thats about it.

Those pics just shows what it looks like when i am at half of the cleaning process
after thet i took tha radio gear,axels shocks,fueltank away it took me 7 hours to complete the job the last picture is an old one. Here is one that shows how it turned out after i had cleaned the truck.
I know the tires arent clean but its real hard to get that sand off them besides they get dirty as soon as drop it on the ground.

Is the madforce all that it is cracked up to be? I was thinking of buying one but I am hearing mixed thoughts from everyone...

What are the

UPs :

and

Downs :

of the truck? And will it run anything like my CEN MT-2? I love my MT-2 so if it is anything similar.... Im in.

Pros: Durable
Fast
Easy to work on
The drivetrain is very strong (a guy put a 70 engine in it without anything breaking)
Good acceleration thanks to the 3-speed

Cons:It could handle a bit better on the track in stock form ( if you put on yellow springs and lower the truck its a great racer)



Thats everything i can think of:
