OFNA Titan vs. HPI Savage 21 vs. Tamiya Terra Crusher vs. Traxxas TMaxx
Battle of the RC Monster Trucks
The last craze in the rc hobby seems to be
the big, nitro powered, monster trucks.
First to go is the OFNA Titan RTR nitro monster truck. Here are the specs.
Awesome truck. It comes assembled including the Airtronics Blazer Sport AM radio.
However the street price of $599 makes it slightly more expensive than its competitors. But looking at the specs, 2-speed transmission, full ball bearings, oil filled shock absorbers, .25 size nitro motor, and Airtronics radio control system make the price worthwhile.
HPI Savage 21 RTR
An assembled and ready to run monster truck from HPI racing.
Powered by a .21 rear exhaust nitro engine
AND a 2-speed transmission, this nitro truck has both low speed power
and high top speed.
Tamiya Terra Crusher
Any rc car or truck made by Tamiya is
perfect for beginners. Excellent instruction manuals and precision
modeling makes building a Tamiya model easy and fun. Anyways the Terra
Crusher already comes assembled, ready-to-run (RTR). By the way, speeds
in excess of 35 mph!
At 1/10th scale, the TMaxx is slightly smaller than the 1/8th scale monster trucks of OFNA, HPI, and Tamiya.
But at 40 miles per hour, this truck is
tough to beat.
And the Winner Is...
The Tamiya Terra Crusher.
Let me tell you why.
At 1/8th scale, it is big. Bigger than the 1/10th scale TMaxx.
It also has a 2-speed transmission, with forward and REVERSE. While other monster trucks have 2-speed transmissions, not all have REVERSE.
And finally, it is a Tamiya.
Second place, I would choose the HPI Savage 21.
Third place would be the Traxxas TMaxx.
Fourth place would be the OFNA Titan.
But all of the trucks are good, and this review is just my personal preference. If you love the looks of the OFNA Titan, or the smaller Traxxas TMaxx, by all means buy them. They are all awesome rc monster trucks.
