If your taste in R/C monster trucks swings toward the larger side of life, the CEN Racing Colossus XT might be the machine for you. This mega, 1/7-scale machine has the same body and internal workings as the CEN Racing Reeper, however the Colossus XT is exclusive to the United States.
Availability aside, the Colossus XT is a massive machine that could rival the Traxxas X-Maxx in both size and “bashability”. A lightweight, yet beefy anodized chassis provides the backbone for this radio-controlled monster truck. Bolted to its frame are four 25mm (diameter) aluminum, oil-filled shocks that can be customized to fit your driving style by way of threaded spring adjusters.
On the electronics and internal components end, this colossal truck is powered by a 1450kV brushless motor and features a Hobbywing 150A electronic speed control (ESC), Savox steering servo, and a 3-channel 2.4Ghz radio system.
The only items needed to get this beast up and running are 2 LiPo batteries (hard case), a LiPo battery charger, AA batteries for the transmitter, and any tools you may need to finish and fine-tune this truck.
Priced at $649.95, the CEN Racing Colossus will be available in early 2017. To see what this machine can do, visit the CEN Racing Facebook page for updates and videos.
