Default Primal RC Monster Truck

This thing is super cool!! But looks like some weak @$$ parts for that kinda size (80lbs). That price too..... But a legit 1/5 scale MT none the less

Very cool. But the size and cost is crazy. And I'm surprised it's gas powered. Buy one, keep it in the box and in 20 years you'll have a very rare RC that nobody bought because the price is insane.

I'm very much looking forward to watching videos of these things hitting parked cars at full speed and mowing down kids.

Looks like the links are so damn small. Servos look to small for the job too. The cops would show up to my house though, anytime I'm using the cut off wheel longer than 10 minutes, they show up 4 hours later...

Still doesn't stop me from wanting one.

Here's a 17 minute video of the guy doing a detailed walk-around. I'd advise against watching if you don't plan to spend the money because it looks pretty darn beefy when you get into the details. I don't have any use for something that huge (and loud), but still found myself wanting one at the end. Definitely cool. I hope its successful just because I'd like to see more crazy things like it in the future.

That looks like a very mixed bag of fit and finish on the truck.

They can keep the hype. Show me videos of that thing airing out and bashing without breaking. For $3K it should be bulletproof.

I don't know, for a huge all-metal low-volume R/C, $3K seems right in the ballpark. And I don't think anyone here can comment on fit/finish based on a video of a prototype.

By all means, lets wait and see what it's actually like and then comment accordingly, but this immediate jump to negativity and criticism on every new release gets old.

$3k doesn’t seem to high of a price to me. As we all know it’s not hard to have $1000 into a 1/10 to make it what you want. It’s definitely a love or hate truck though.

After watching running video, if there was a inbetween gearset id get it. The high speed gearset was way high. Motor sounded like it was working to hard to get it up to speed. The "crawler" gearing was to low. Lol.. Sounded like it would be screamin but no anywhere.

I retract my rod end statement.

I guess when you have 3K$ to spend on this truck you have another 3K$ to buy a handful of 1:5 bodies to jump over... they sure don't come cheap either

Wow, this thing is like the ultimate monster truck!
I think 3 grand is a bargain for what you get, I don't see how they are even making any money on this thing.

I sure want one, but I don't have the room, or know of a place to run one.
