About the Kyosho RC Truck

Here is an official quote from the website of Kyosho Corp.

"It's a massive – and maniacal – MONSTER!

Unleash the Mad Force on unforgiving terrain, and watch it go BERSERK! Loaded with high-tech hardware, this .21-size, 4-wheel drive nitro crusher will take on any off-road challenge...and come back for more. It has the speed, muscle and durability to back up its claim as the new King of the Monsters, and the machine that other trucks won't want to mess with. If you're intent on insane R/C action, get the certifiable nitro beast that doesn't just meet the competition — it DOMINATES all the other models out there: the Mad Force .21 from Kyosho!" - Official website of Kyosho

What makes the Kyosho Mad Force unique is the 3-speed chain transmission and solid axle drive (similar to real monster trucks.) Its powerful .21 pull-start engine makes the Mad Force do wheelies during acceleration, and reach a top speed of around 40mph.

Fast, fun and durable. Definitely a must buy rc monster truck.
