It may be a good beginner truck, but it's a step down from a Savage. Why are the front tires different than the rears? lol

1/12th scale. Kinda small don't you think? Why would it be called "Monster"?

Wow. This is where those negative ratings would come in handy...There's already one thread about the Nitro Monster King, and several threads about the Nitro Wheelie King, which is what people called it before they knew the actual name.

A quick search for "Nitro Monster King" pulled up [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_8722721/anchors_8783404/mpage_1/key_/anchor/tm.htm#8783404]this[/link] and this only. A perfect example of how much better the new search is than the old. Start using it.

The front tires look like they are plastic. Maybe for lighter weight so it can pull wheelies with a .15 engine? lol

Sorry, but people being so lazy that they don't even bother to do a search that would take 10 seconds of your time at the most just pisses me off. He's been here longer than I have, so I can garuntee you he knows how to use the search; He has no excuses as to why he did not check to see if there was already a thread about this. THAT'S why I have to be such a dick.

Good thing we got a keyboard commando round these parts to make sure that no one dares create more than one thread per product and then suggest bringing up an over 2 month old thread... something that will usually bring an equal flogging.
