They were probably referring to the MRC World Scale cars.There was a Thunder King monster truck,Baja King staduim truck, and Desert Thunder buggy.They were 2 wheel drive with 2 540 motors and one batttery pack-usually a 7 cell.They are great trucks,nearly indestructable.There was also a .21 powered Thunder King that used the same transmission as the electrics.A little ahead of their time-runtime was terrible with 2 motors and 1700 batteries.

I think he is refering to the old .21 1/8 4wd stadium trucks like the Inferno ST. I am not sure who else made a stadium truck like this, maybe mugen? I know that the Hotbodies stadium truck is really starting to bring this class back to life, even though it is running as a truggy right now at most tracks, but as the numbers grow it will probably moved to its own class.
