I know nothing about the Mad Torque crawler but keep in mind, the bigger your crawler is, the harder it is to find challenging and fun spots. I say the best bang for your buck is a used Losi Mini Crawler. You can have tons of fun with it just about anywhere and when you want to start upgrading, the parts are about half the price of 1/10th scale crawler hop-ups. Honestly, you can't go wrong with Axial or Losi, they both make quality crawlers with a ton of aftermarket support.

Spend $20 on a green supporter star and take a look in the classifieds on this forum. There's no better source for consistently finding good deals on crawlers. It's well worth the $20...besides, there's not a year gone by that I haven't won well over $20 worth of cool stuff in the giveaways.

I have a mad crawler, same thing just the 1/10. I love it. T'was my first crawler and ive had a blast with it.

Here my log thread on it. I believe the mad T comes with metal gears alredy.. so just upgrade the servo and go.

I love my mad torque!!! you should check out some of the mod/build threads under the super class forums... only problems ive had was the set screws came out of the motor gears but its an easy fix!!! Most everyone on here will say axial or losi and for good reasons but i like to be a bit different and have a budget good luck with whatever you get!

I have tried to call Nitro RCX to order a Mad Torque and no one ever answers the phone? Has anyone else had this problem trying to contact the company? Thanks for the input.

My experience with companies like that is that if they're that hard to contact when you're trying to give them your money, just think how hard they'll be to get ahold of if something goes wrong with your order.

I agree with Hyde802. I just ordered and received all the parts for my rear steer and stocked up on steering knuckles. No problems at all ordering directly from nitrorcx website and they shipped them very quickly considering im across the country. Very happy with my mad torque
