The Battle of the Nitro Monster Trucks

The last craze in the rc hobby seems to be the big,
nitro powered, monster trucks.

Popular companies such as OFNA, HPI, Traxxas, and
Tamiya are battling to out do each other.

Powered by a 2.3 hp engine at 30,000 rpm, this is one
powerful monster truck.
Street price: $599

HPI Savage 21 RTR
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.
Street price: $459

Traxxas TMaxx RTR
40 miles per hour! Enough said.
Street price: $459

Tamiya Terra Crusher RTR
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!
Street price: $400 plus
