Monster trucks can turn anyone’s frown upside down. They’ve been around in the RC scene for years. What makes them really awesome is their huge size and capability in going to through different terrain. We’ve been fortunate to observe plenty of monster trucks even though the older models have come and go. We all have our favorite trucks and there have been some that we weren’t even aware of.
Here are the top 4 monster trucks:
The HPI Savage: This nitro-powered truck was considered to be one of the first few to possess a twin vertical plate chassis. It utilized the longest shocks. Different variations of the truck have been replicated since its public appearance. Over the years, the HPI Savage became armed with brushless motors and varying blocks of nitro engines. You can usually spot this particular truck on pulling tracks and race tracks.
The Kyosho USA-1: This may not be the first electrically powered monster truck in the market but it’s one of the most popular ones around. The Kyosho USA-1 was created from the full-sized USA-1 truck but with its own independent suspension. A nitro version was also available, modelled after the Kyosho 1/8 scale buggy chassis. Its body was pieced from a Lexan vehicle but utilized plastic materials to improve its appearance.
The Losi LST: We never dreamed of seeing the Losi LST being unique. It was practically different from any of the trucks seen during the time it was revealed. Its humongous shocks stood out and it came armed with a plethora of features including multiple disc slipper clutch, a 2-speed transmission, and a portable reverse transmission. The truck also featured plenty of torque thanks largely to its installed shaft starting big block engine. Now, the Losi can be seen in its XXL form.
Tamiya Blackfoot:If you’re seeking for a cool monster truck in the 1980s, then the Tamiya Blackfoot is the answer. It featured a joint chassis and suspension as well as an injection-molded body. Market materials such as dogbones and ball differentials were sold only few companies as they enhance the Tamiya Blackfoot’s strength and performance. Its body is still being sought after today.
Well, that’s basically the top 4 monster trucks to have existed of all time. If you know where to look, you can still spot these trucks today.
