I have the same model.. there is a site where u can get a more powerful battery..

That ST-1 desperately needs a high down force wing. The OE wing looks like a tadpole tail.

Let us know how the Tomahawk runs.

Default 1:8 monster truck buy - Need advice

Hi All,

My name is Ramit and I new onto the BHP bandwagan. Off-late I have been wanting to buy a 1:8 Nitro monster truck. Need your help on mutiple aspects

1. Do I buy it from India or abroad? if its abroad does buying online make sense?
2. What brands are available in India?

Specifically I know HPI and Thunder Tiger can be bought in India but it seems the price diff is huge between the 2 brands. I am interested to buy either MTA - S 28 (Thunder Tiger) - Rs. 27000 (Model Art, Delhi) or Savage 4.6 XL - Rs. 46000 (HPI Bangalore), can anyone help

Really would appreciate your thoughts

Default Thunder Tiger SC Truck

From the first looks it looks to be very much based off the AE tc4, which I believe is very smart, could be a port to Team Associated as well.
