Carson or Shengqi
Hi all,Iam thinking of buying a petrol Monster truck but cant make my mind up on a CARSON or SHENGQI model,so any advice from you pro,s out there would be of great help,thanks.
Hi Ibo and welcome to the site.
Can't really comment on either of these makes as I have never tried them however, I have just tried a very nice monster truck from Nitro-Tek. It belongs to one of the guys I work with who bought it about a year ago brand new but could not get it started. He brought in for me to check out - just some minor setting up needed doing on it and a better grade plug than the one supplied (I changed the plug to an OS A3) The build quality of this truck is superb - fully anodized parts throughout as standard. The engine is a Team Infinity .18 with pullstart fitted.
Once set up, I was very impressed at how easy the engine was to start and it is not a noisy engine either so that is a good thing as it will not attract noise complaints. I know people with T-Maxx's and Savages who have had noise complaints when they run them. (I often hear these from over 1/2 mile away when they are brought to the beach) This will not be a problem with the Nitro-Tek truck.
Worth checking out on the link here Fully Built 1/10th Nitro radio controlled cars - Nitrotek Bug Crusher PRO - Nitro RC Truck There is also a video of it on this link and this is the particular truck I tested. It has now gone back to a very happy owner...!
I had a lot of fun testing this one - it was just a shame I had to give it back !!
Some pics below for you.
