Hardly any difference in size between the two- I expected the MCD to be quite a bit bigger!

Its nearly double the price of the FG monster truck.
I looked at one before I got my FG and couldn't warrant the extra money that needed spending.

& the above price is without a engine[X(]

is it just me but the ground clearance on the MCD trucks (both 4wd & 2WD) look poor compared to the FG's, huge plates that come down the side (way below the body shell) seem to leave hardly any room for ground clearance?

This is what put me off the MCD when i 1st seen them.

Dont know what conversion rate you used but its not the conversion rate that is used by the banks.
IMO itw way too much money (without a engine) and if you read about a few other forums the MCD trucks have problems.
Plus they are slower than the FG

Veron, sweet rides there.

Just a question for you, do the differences that the MCD has over the FG justify the price? I mean I love the look of the truck outside of the side protectors, and I want 4WD. If the vehicle is justifiable at that price, I would love to eventually pick one up.

I just have a hard time seeing what makes the MCD cost so much, without an engine. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

the metal sides come down too far & makes the truck *look* strange, much prefer the look of FG truck, & believe it or not, i prefer 2WD!

Not saying MCD is a poor truck, ive never seen one in action so cant comment :-) but the price is a bit over the top imo.
