Buyer's Guide to Team Associated's Monster GT
The 1/8 scale monster truck category is currently ruled by popular trucks such as the HPI Savage 25, Kyosho Mad Force, and Tamiya TNX. Now even Team Associated has joined the fun with it's own r/c monster truck.
How fast and powerful is the Associated Monster GT?
The Associated Monster GT is powered by a Thunder Tiger .21 cu in motor producing 2.1 horsepower and has been clocked at 32 mph by Radio Control Car Action Magazine. This nitro r/c monster truck is also slightly bigger than other 1/8 scale trucks, which makes it more stable and better to handle rough terrain and high jumps.
Reviews of the Monster GT RTR
This truck has gotten mixed reviews in forums, but has gotten a good review conducted by George M. Gonzalez of Radio Control Car Action Magazine.
"The MGT felt incredibly responsive, and it accelerated quickly for a truck that weighs more than 12 pounds."
"I used the radar gun to check the truck’s top speed down the long 150-foot straightaway. The MGT made several passes, and the radar gun recorded a 32mph highest speed."
It’s loaded with many unique features including a machined, extruded aluminum chassis, a dual pick-up fuel tank, a transverse-mounted engine and Team Associated’s Dual-Start System. The MGT also has many standard features that are considered expensive hop-up accessories on many comparable monster trucks such as front, rear and center CV axles, aluminum front and rear lower chassis plates and an aluminum dual-chamber, tuned pipe.
And here are more reviews as posted on the official website of the Associated Monster GT (www.teamassociated.com).
"Bought two of them (one red and one blue). Ran um like I stole them, jumped them hi and crashed them hard. Still running strong. Great trucks!"
"Hello AE I just bought your new MGT for my son and I. We do have electric cars a B4 & L3ovel with minor mods. This is our first nitro. We are very happy with it. Love your products, keep up the great work."
"I just purchased the MGT. Great truck, all the Savage 25 guys are impressed (I guess size does matter)."
