From Force RC:
The Force RC® 1/8-Scale Epidemic 4X4 Monster Truck is an all-terrain electric vehicle designed to take the Earth by storm and leave the weak in the dust. Besides having a practically impenetrable chassis and muscle-bound appearance, what makes this beast even more exciting is that it comes out of the box ready to run. At the heart of this monster is a brushless power system interlinked with a shaft-driven drivetrain that can handle up to a 4S LiPo battery. Massive, aluminum oil-filled shocks keep the independent suspension in check, while a wheelie bar at the rear keeps the back tires firmly engaged. The body, wheels, and tires join to a super tough 3.0mm anodized aluminum chassis for long-lasting dependability. Waterproof electronics and a glitch-free 2.4GHz radio system ensure that the control you need won’t wimp out. Looking ferocious just standing still and capable of reaching 40+ MPH, don’t be surprised if your gasp for breath quickly turns into a big cheesy grin.
