My Thoughts – Monster Trucks
RC monster trucks can give you some really exciting times. “I” love running all my RC’s and have had some really fun times with them. However, The time I have spent running my monster trucks has brought me so much more excitement and thrills. These trucks run on 6s power and out of the box they will run 50+mph. “I” jump and launch the trucks in the air 6-8 feet high and a distance of 10-13 feet and they just keep going.
My short course trucks and off-road desert trucks with lots of upgrades, Can not handle this jump without breaking. They are fast and handle great. They just are not as durable as an RC monster truck.
“If” your interested in these trucks check out my off-road RC cars.

Wow! I used to be a great fans of monster truck when I was young. Your article brings me lots of good memories. Ha! Bigfoot is still my favorite. Brian
Glad I could bring you some good memories. BigFoot is a great monster truck.
I was wondering which RC Monster Truck would you recommend for someone who has never owned one? I am looking for something that isn’t too powerful but rugged enough for sand at the beach. Thank you.
All of them would do well at the beach. For never owning one and not wanting to powerful of a truck, I’d say the Traxxas Skully monster truck would be a great fit.
I remember when remote control cars would move at a snail’s pace compared to how fast they go now. These monster truck RC’s sound amazing! Every paragraph in your article is making me want to go out and grab one and go off road! haha. Great write up. This is going to be great for my nephew!
The RC’S have come a long way in technology since I was young. Off road is great fun. It is amazing what these monster trucks can do.
I just had a flashback to when I was a kid. I loved playing with RC cars, they were one of my favorite toys and I have many special memories with them.
Glad to hear I could help bring back some special memories for you. Just remember you never have to out grow RC’S! With the technology used today, Everyone could find an RC that suits them.
