Just under $300, but the only listing I have seen has about $60 worth of shipping costs... (on eBay)

It's still pre-order, just wait for AsiaTees.com to get it - free shipping for anything over $75.

The Kingkong RC 1/12 Scale Soviet ZIS-150/CA10 4x2 Truck with Metal Chassis Kit that has been out for a while is the same exact price (and same shipping cost) as this pre-order from the same eBay seller, but Asiatees has it for $289.99 w/free shipping.

They should be offering the hardbody cab with interior, too - probably for $75-$80... might make for an interesting custom mud-bogger truggy variation like King Kong Q157 4X4 Mud Monster:

That axle and rear suspension on the Q157 look rad! Looks like a GM 14 bolt.

I like the look of those old trucks. They look good lifted with solid axles. Idk bout the fling king style tires, im more of a monster truck guy than a mud truck. Not sayin i would go for hittin a good ol mud hole lol

I love the looks of this, but it's one of those should I or shouldn't trucks.

I think it's an awesome looking truck. My friend owns the first King Kong RC truck and he's happy with it.

AsiaTees has it up as news on their site here: https://www.asiatees.com/article?&id...Z0mG58a5jh3OeE

Price is $299.

They have absolute dumbest video for it that I've ever seen. It's an on-road truck, but they take it in the sand and the results are obviously bad.

Agreed on the video, they might as well have taken it to the sc track and sent it off some jumps to be any more useless as to its purpose. Gets stuck well. Too bad nobody does a 1/10 version of something like this (maybe dimensionally it will???), at least a chassis kit, I'd own a that. Make a Ford or Dodge 550 body for it and a service bed........ one day.

Wat the crap was they thinkin?! Lmbo

I agree, a chassis kit would be nice. Make a nice sevice truck as suggested, or stretch the chassis n make a rollback out of it

Really like their rigs but they have missed a ton of sales by going the 1/12th route with their releases. Could have some super cool builds if these trucks were closer to the mainstream 1/10 scale crawler world sizes.

I don't think 1/12th is that bad. Some of these old trucks were tiny compared to modern day, massive rigs.

And the semi trucks from Tamiya, etc are 1/14th so I'm not sure these trucks would be that small compared to a 1/10 scaler.

Does anyone have the 157 Mud Monster? Iíd like to get one but curious how well it trails and if itís holding up. I like the 2wd trucks but donít think I could find anywhere interesting to actually run them.
