I am totally okay with people hating on Traxxas even though I love them. The Stampede was my first dream truck like 20 years ago, before 4wd was even a flipping thing with them. I do have my own hate for them though because I love kits and I think Traxxas with their RTR and ATR models really ruined the whole kit thing, you can argue it but I think the timeline pans out. It is nice to see though that you can buy the 4tec2.0 as a roller and I guess allegedly the trx4 will be offered in kit form, but they will still provide all their own electronics? Can't I just get a real kit from you traxxas? I have no idea what this thread is about but I felt like commenting.

Independent suspension monster trucks are a thing. Only these two I know of but still it has been used.

As are 2wd trucks

Granted, more and more RC "monster trucks" those days are not much more than stadium trucks with big tires. More than half are not even V-tread. Even the 5th scales are like this. LCG, not a monster truck.

Post Script, This thread should be renamed. "What makes a Monster Truck a Monster Truck? And, Fight!!"

Real Monster trucks and also mega trucks have solid axles. Sticking fat wheels on an RC truggy does not make it a monster truck except in marketing land.

I love how opinions are fact now.

Oversized wheels/tires

Huge shocks

Over proportion suspension

Recreational purposeful read as redneck

Doesn’t specify driveline specifics but there is no right or wrong with this

Monster trucks is an imaginative perspective of what ones mind creates as long as
Everything is huge obnoxious and gets everyone’s attention.

The most amusing aspect of this thread is that the OP hasn't replied to clarify anything. This thread contains his/her one and only post on RCT. Troll?

I was thinking the same thing lol! There are all kinds of threads that get started with legitimate questions or points trying to be made that get little to no response. This person posts this random statement that makes little sense and the thread just keeps going and going.....

I prefer giant slash, because it really winds up a certain demographic.
