Thumbs up New 1/8 Kyosho Mad Crusher VE

I Love it! The nitro version is also available.





New monster machine dominates the roughest roads in style with scale truck body and 5-link suspension.

Let the might and power of this monster machine inspire you with its dominant presence and performance over the toughest terrain. Get your adrenalin pumping by ripping around wide-open spaces at full throttle as you wreak true R/C truck mayhem! Based on the heavy-duty Mad Force Cruiser chassis, the new MAD CRUSHER VE incorporates a newly developed 5-link suspension system featuring ball joint upper and lower links in combination with lateral rods that deliver a deeper, supple stroke, more characteristic of rock crawlers. Equipped with the powerful 2100KV Team ORION NEON 8 brushless motor, you can ride over any surface from tarmac to off-road in 70's American pick-up truck style with realistic scale wheels and tires.

Simply add AA-size batteries for the transmitter and a battery for the chassis and the MAD CRUSHER VE Readyset will get you straight into monster trucking action!

Fully assembled Readyset only requires four AA-size alkaline batteries for the transmitter and battery for the chassis.

1/8 scale Mad Force Kruiser 2.0 VE monster truck chassis base incorporates new 5-link suspension.

Pre-cut and painted scale body complete with decals applied recreates the 70ís American truck style.

Rigid axles on front and rear with solid casing effectively transfer power into traction.

Diff gears incorporate steel spiral gears on front and rear to handle high power loads.

Team ORION brushless system provides powerful performance.

Includes Syncro KT-231P+ transmitter and Syncro KR-331 receiver with failsafe function.

Receiver and battery are stored in radio box for protection against shocks and dirt.

Waterproof high-torque KS5031-09MW steering servo incorporates metal gears for reliable control of the big chassis.

Looks great, dont have to worry about parts availability for my Mad Force VE now there is a new Mad Force.

Whats the use of that front link, stability links?




edit. found it.




Lateral rods equipped on front and rear control the movement of the suspension to ensure superior surface tracing and stability.

That wheelie bar looks a tad skimpy to me.

I like the body, but those mirrors are going to snap off within 5 minutes of the first run. ...at least if I was at the controls

Yeah, anything Kyosho makes is pretty tough. Kit versions of the models are top notch, but even the RTR stuff is tough. Kyosho is much like Tamiya, they are legendary.

Come on, really?? We are talking about a monster truck which is on the market for more than 10--15 years under various names: Mad Armour, Twin Force, Mad Force, Kruiser, Kruiser 2, Foxx and now Mad Crusher. It is one of the best MT ever!!
