Thunder Tiger MT4 G3 With massive upgrades - Asking $750. Location is Griffin QLD 4503 (North side of Brisbane).

For sale is this absolutely awesome Thunder Tiger MT4 G3 monster truck. But this one has a little something extra thanks to the massive upgrades to the system.


The Thunder Tiger MT4 G3 is a fantastic base to start an epic 1/8th scale monster truck build thanks to three diff's, an aluminium chassis and a renown toughness. Add to that these upgrades:


1. Motor and ESC upgrade to the Castle Creations Mamba Monster Max - the same motor and ESC used on HPI Savage Flux HP monster trucks. This is a huge step-up from the original motor/esc and this motor/esc combo costs by itself nearly as much as the rest of the truck put together (RRP is $450)

2. Upgraded shock absorbers and heavy duty springs.

3. Huge rugged wheels and tires with nearly 100% tread still left on them.

4. Two options for body: a) the stock body shell (near new, barely a scratch on it), use this with a single shock absorber on each arm. Or b) a custom built steel frame to really make this a bashing beast. The custom frame also has custom mounts that screw onto the stock mounts, this reinforces the whole chassis.

5. Upgraded and tough Savox SC-1256TG Steering Servo (with titanium gears) and metal arm.


Included are some spares as pictured, but includes a full set of spare wheels (the original wheels that come with the MT4 G3), extra shock absorbers for when running with the metal frame, some swing arms, and a few extra bits and pieces. Also included is the Castle Creations link USB interface so you can program the ESC from your computer.


The radio is a standard fare 2.4GHz radio with a built-in rechargeable battery which is charged via USB cable.


Optionally I have a barely used battery for the car, a really powerful 5 cell LiPo 40C 5000mah battery which makes this car very fast and very powerful. If you want this, add an extra $50 (it's barely used, they normally sell for about $80). I chose this battery because it is massive but still just squeezes into the battery compartment which makes it perfect. On 5 cells, this thing is extremely fast and I recommend taking it easy to begin with.


This is a truly epic monster truck, with all the right upgrades to make this a unique and powerful and fun car. It looks tough and it is tough and with the 3 diffs it's also really stable and easy to drive.


At the moment the car is using a single shock per arm setup for use with the stock shell. But also pictured is what it looks like with the custom metal frame setup with double shock absorbers per arm. As you can imagine, it is really tough and it looks awesome.


If you have doubts about the price, think about this:


Price of truck is about $650

Price of Castle Creations motor and ESC $450

Price of Castle Link USB $40

Price of the upgraded wheels ~$100

Custom steel frame - one of a kind, but similar things sell for over $150 elsewhere

Price of shock absorbers set $100

Price of steering servo $100


Not including the other spare wheels and parts thats over $1,500 of rc truck, I'm asking for half that for a second hand car all set up ready to go with these awesome upgrades and near new body shell. Also, the optional battery is $50 extra as it is basically new.

It's an awesome truck - epic really. Shame to say goodbye but my son and I just don't use it anymore. It would be better served elsewhere. Not a lot of action on this forum anymore though :-( what happened?
