Default Monster Decisions.

I have an rs4 rally (thanks to the guys here for helping me get it running!), but I'm now looking at monster trucks. I love the TXT-1, but I'm leaning towards getting a nitro vehicle. I've looked at the Revo and others, and the HPI Savage has caught my eye, but none have that look like the TXT. Am I missing one? Are there any TXT-1ish nitro vehicles around?

Ummm there really aren't any nitro trucks that have to look of a TXT. Kyosho has the mad force which has solid front and rear axles so that would probably be one of the better ones if your are looking for a crawler. I would probably go with the new 3.3 revo and put a couple of posi diffs in it and call it a crawler.

Hrm yes I see. Thanks! A crawler I guess is what I'm looking for.

Yikes! Apparently the Mad Force RCX is pretty hard to find. Makes me wonder about upgrades and replacement parts for something that isn't that popular.
