Default The Official Thunder Tiger MT4 G3 thread

Come on over and talk about the awesomeness of the wonder tiger!

Any other MT4 fans out there?

Here is mine, all clean and NIBby from the day I got it. It looks much dirtier now...

Nice pics LaTuFu, the Thunder Tiger MT4 sure is a beast. If I was going to to buy another RC it would be one of these... maybe after a second Summit though.

It looks real nice with that bug body.

I have enjoyed this truck since the day I got it.  It is a lot of fun.

Definitely the best value in a Brushless RTR Monster Truck right now.

I just noticed Tower has the MT4-G3 listed as discontinued. What is up with that? I thought this truck was the next big thing, I even had one on my wish list.

Yeah, like most RTR kits out there, the stock electronics is "average" at best.  The servo is barely up to the task.  It is reasonable enough out of the box, but you can definitely get better performance with an upgrade.  It can wait until you destroy the stock one, though.

Kenny:  No confirmation from TT yet, but a rep at TT USA said it was because they were "upgrading the radio."

We'll see as it gets closer to September.  That's when it is due to be released.

Other than the servo everything is quite good up to standard, and I am quite happy with it. Now my MT4 sit on the shelf waiting for the lovely servo to come.

Wow over 3 months off the shelves, I was thinking the new model would be out in a few weeks or so. I'll bet there's a few people kicking themselves over missing out on one, I was thinking of maybe getting one next month after I get my tax return but I can wait a little longer. So Latufu, are you going to get a second one once they are re-released?
