Monster Truck Insanity – Mini Monster Vehicles and Licensed Tires
Whats up Monster Truck devoted, and welcome to a different Thursday thaaaang. This week I’ve bought two non-related but in addition kinda-related topics to deal with!
Guys, mini strong axle monsters are about to get VERY in style. Finally week’s Strong Axle Showdown occasion held in Virginia, a number of racers had their minis in attendance and apparently they went over VERY effectively with the group.
Southwest Monster Shop has been growing prototype Axial SCX24 conversion chassis, and so they getting shut saying a manufacturing package.
For these unaware, the child Axial axles and guts mate to this chassis, and also you then supply a set of wheel and tires from a 1/25 scale plastic monster truck mannequin package. You should use both a plastic mannequin physique or a small lexan one made for the SCX24. Put ’em all collectively and voila- a candy miniature r/c monster truck.
A strong axle monster of this measurement makes SO MUCH sense. Not solely is one among these little guys cheaper than their bigger 1/8 or 1/10 brethren, however they don’t want as a lot house to arrange a killer scale setting for them to run round in.
I’m completely going to be constructing one among these as quickly because the retail kits can be found, and also you guess your butt I’m going to be constructing a scale stadium for it (and hopefully others) to bomb round in. Heck, with that new moldable filth/sand out there (Monster Jam has a toy stadium that comes with it), creating each the truck AND enviornment will in all probability be my huge winter challenge!
I’d think about the large corporations are paying shut consideration to how these little monsters are acquired.
The one factor that’s gonna clearly want mounted although is the tire scenario. Yeah, exhausting plastic mannequin tires will work whereas that is nonetheless a novelty, however we’re gonna want 1/24 scale Renegade tires pronto!
And hey, whereas speaking tires it seems like RC4WD simply introduced a licensed set of Michelin MEGAXBIB agricultural tires. A number of full-size groups run these tires, and it’s superior to see precise licensed MT tires!
Sure, it’s very apparent to see that Golden Yr and Firestorm tires are modeled after “actual” manufacturers, nevertheless it’s cool to see a tire with the official badging. It seems like a pleasant full-cleated monster truck tire that might actually work effectively on a retro-style rig the place that tread fashion is the hotness.
Subsequent week – some temporary first impressions as an early look to my Arrma Outcast evaluation! See ya then, and ensure to tune into the Thursday evening Massive Squid Stay YouTube present!
