Tamiya 1/8-scale TNX Monster Truck

Tamiya’s Terra Crusher follow-up is called the TNX, and lops nearly 4 pounds off the original truck (3.5-4lbs, depending on who you ask). Much of the weight savings comes from the smaller-diameter, thinner-carcass tires–and we all know how all-important rotating weight is. Other major changes include an O.S.-built .18 engine, and a new chassis that spans from shock tower to shock tower (as you’ll recall, the Terra Crusher’s chassis plate stopped short of the front suspension, where a plastic nose section with integrated electronics box took over). Electric starting returns, but reverse does not.- FS-18RS engine
- Pre-painted Body
- 3.5lbs. lighter than the Terra Crusher
- Claimed speed in excess of 40mph
- Electric start
- Two-speed forward only transmission

Associated Reveals ‘Project BFT’!

In anticipation of the Chicago hobby show, Associated has revealed more photos of it’s “Bigger, Faster, Tougher” monster truck concept. The final details haven’t been worked out yet…but the A-Team promises the BFT will be powered by a rear-exhaust .21 engine and will include an aluminum “backbone” chassis, 2-speed tranny, extra-long arms with adjustable pivot-ball suspension suspended by eight oil-filled shocks, and huge monster-style tires and wheels. A factory-painted body will also be included, but no word on the final paint scheme (the flag look would be cool though). Check out www.rc10.com for more info.

Limited Edition “Ready to Race” Losi XXX-NT on the way! AUGUST 2001

A ready-to-run from Team Losi? Not in the traditional “entry level” sense. According to Losi, the race-prepped Triple-XNTs will be the same full-on racing trucks Losi offers in kit form, but will be built, adjusted, and personally inspected by actual Team Losi team members like Adam Drake, Todd Hodge and Greg Hodapp. The trucks will come complete with a performance Picco .12 bump-start engine, JR XR3 FM radio system and custom painted body.
