Default HPI Nitro Monster King - Nitro Wheely King!

This looks like a BLAST! It doesn't like it can do anything particularly well, it just looks like a ton of fun to drive around.

Awesome- I would totally buy that if I had cash flowing out of my rear end. But can you say big block conversion and mile long wheelies?[>:]

whats with the front tires...they look like the hard plastic that comes on kids toys. anyone recognize that motor, is it a small block G3.0. ......i dont know man....i think they should scratch everything off the drawing board if it isnt a 1/5 Savage. who knows...it might be a fun little backup rig to customize.

Looks kinda boring to me and +1 on the front tires. The prototype for this has been out for a year or so, about time we see some more pics of it

Looks nice, whats with the engine mounting . Looks a little hard when your glow driver doesn't like to stick.... just toss those tires man, they look like junk. Other than that it looks sorta kinda fun. They should take the idea Kyosho did with their QRC and use a transmission with that, reverse without 200,000 extra gears, and if reverse dies, you can still drive

Liking the wheels. Looks scale, aside from the 17 bumpers and plastic bars they stuck on it. Gotta stick with the Mad Force.

Looks like a fun little truck, I'd even consider picking one up if some cash falls into my lap. Can you say, .18TZ in that thing?

I had a tz in my HPI MT2. It broke more parts than it was worth. It would be cool to gear it clear down and make a trail/crawler out of it.
