Trinity Spyder Monster Truck

Trinity Spyder Monster Truck

Here’s a close-up Trinity’s all-new nitro-powered Spyder monster truck. The big-block RTR features a .256 cubic-inch engine and comes with an aluminum tuned pipe, has an eight shock suspension, two-speed tranny with reverse, factory-painted body, dual-disc brakes and a shaft starting system. The drivetrain is mounted in a very narrow ladder-style chassis and the center-mounted engine is very low in the chassis to lower the center of gravity for improved handling. A big 170cc fuel tank provides long run times between refills, and on-the-fly fueling via the quick-fill cap means you can run as long as you have fuel. The Spyder fits engines with typical big-block dimensions, so pyscho upgrades like the Sirio .27 engine push speeds from fast to insane. Click Here for more pictures and information.

Features: • full bearings • 8 aluminum shocks • ladder-style chassis • aluminum tuned pipe • 2-speed transmission with reverse •.256 engine • Pivot ball/hingepin hybrid suspension • High-torque steering servo • Shaft starting system with included starter unit • Includes rechargeable glow-starter with wall charger and fuel bottle • Factory-finished body

Tamiya 1/8-scale TNX Monster Truck

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
