Default World's Fastest RC Monster Truck is...........................

A Wheely King. 73 mph. I kid you not.[X(]







With the body on it looks like any other road car. A true sleeper!

It's not my truck! I'm just passing the info along to the masses. It was built by and is owned by a fella named Dave who works for HPI. www.hpiracing.com

It's electric, brushless. Yeah, who would've ever guessed the Wheely King platform could transform into a land rocket? It's technically the most "toyish" RC truck HPI sells......and yet it's now the fastest.[8D]

That is advertised speed. Advertisers lie straight through their teeth. A 3.3cc 4-Tec can hit 55mph, maybe even 60, but any faster would require much higher gear ratios than those that come in the 4-Tec box. Additionally, the TRX3.3 will begin to struggle turning those high gears once it reaches 30000RPM, most nitro engines, the TRX3.3 included, loses much of its torque at this RPM bandwidth.

Now, if the 4-Tec had a powerful big block and really really high gears, I can see this light nib,e on-roadster reaching 70MPH.

yeah i know but electric isnt cheap either . you seen the prices of those electric motors lately...... most electric cars and truck have two electric motors and for the price of two motors you can buy one hell of a nitro monster truck

.... personally i dont agree with this because to me.. this isnt a monster truck.... it has a monster truck chasis, yes.... but just because a monster truck has a pan chasis doesnt make it any less a monster truck... so yea i think maybe u could get by calling it a monster truck if you put the big wheels on it.. but with those wheels and that setup... its just a car

Yeah, motors are very expensive, even to the point of craziness. Going two motors will really make a crazy sick fast car or truck, and most of all, motors are the cutting edge in RCs. Motors in many respects supercede engines and will surpass engine by further leaps and bounds unless engines see a serious technological revolution.

100MPH true speed will be possible as motor technology continues to develop. Newer types of motors will come out, battery technology will continue to improve, and electronics will also evlve further from what it is now.

So, in line with this thread, I can see why the fastest truck is motor powered and not engine powered. Engine technology is not developing quickly enough to keep up with motor technology.

Once you modify a truck to this extent it is no longer what its advertised to be this is not a wheely king its a purpose built speed truck and thats all.

That's not a monster truck. The modified Wheely King above is the WORLDS FASTEST MONSTER TRUCK.

It also has the stock King axles front and rear along with what appears to be most of the stock King suspension. It's pretty much a slammed King with a brushless system in it all rolling on road tires. Guys here do the same things more or less to their Savages for serious on road use, yet they are still called Savages and are still monster trucks. Instead of hating on the guy, give him props for literally doing the impossible. I mean, could YOU turn a Wheely King into a 73mph beast and take the World's Fastest Monster Truck title? There's guys here that can't even do that with their big dollar Savages.[8D]

What about guys like SpikeX and a couple others that I cannot remember that have dedicated on road Savages? They're still Savages right? They're still monster trucks right? Why the double standard now? [8D]

We'll see the first mass produced 100 MPH RCs within a couple years. The technology is just about there. And they'll very likely be brushless.[8D]

Ya probably and Im betting traxxas will put the vxl in there spirit and claims speeds of 100mph+ with a 3s lipo

100mph!? come on, think about it, with that kind of speed what fun is driving it? you can't make turns without wrecking, there are very few places to run full speed. and you can barelky see your car form that far away! whats the point? i'd rather have fun hitting jumps and tackleing terrain then shooting a strait line.

still it's pretty cool that he can mod his truck into somthing crazy.

lol okay so that pic above is the wheely king monster truck ,but been modified to be a car . now i understand . yeah electric has some advantages and disadvantages compared to nitro . and the price of those lipo's are crazly expensive , and i see that they made 11.1v lipo batts to achieve those 70plus mph speeds , anyway i still love running my jato3.3 at those crazy speeds , i only use it though for straight line speeds , its a real adrenaline rush lol . and i found this perfect extremely long and wide flat road in my area to run it ,its just perfect . i would only consider getting an electric car that can do the 100mph runs but i guess they would need to make some crazy gearbox for it though with at least 5 gears to achieve that .

Get current with what's out there right now and you'll see where we are heading very quickly. Traxxas' "for the masses" brushless system can top out past well past 60+ mph with appropriately sized LiPos. The 100mph barrier is thisclose to being breached.....all due to brushless and LiPo. As for vehicle control, well, that all depends on your trigger finger, but expect the very fast speeds to only be obtainable on pavement and not dirt, mainly due to traction reasons.[8D]

There's always going to be nitro vs brushless questions for whatever personal reasons, but you cannot hide the fact that brushless and LiPo technology is surpassing nitro very quickly. Prices will fall and when they do, the "scale of balance" of RC will likely shift in favor of electric once again. [8D]
