Dear Finny,


The Mad force has the same shell design as the Twin Force. Its a nice Monster Truck too! You can get them in RTR or standard kit form if you already have a radio control.


The best price I have seen them at is www.rcmaster.net.au


Cheers,

Sorry to bring up a really old thread guys but how muchis this truck selling for these days?

Rare as rockinghorse poop. rcsquare.com used to have them bundled with a twin esc perfex ESC. Seen them go on eBay for less then $300 but they don't come up often.

Hotbodies Ezilla or Traxxas E-Maxx are the pick of the two with later having greater aftermarket parts support but the first is way cooler
