ECX Amp 2WD Monster Truck

Finding the right radio-controlled vehicle to make your start in the R/C hobby can be a fun task to take on. It can also be one that’s a little daunting, as there are so many amazing vehicles on the market, all with their own strengths and weaknesses.  One of the major factors that goes into a purchase is price, and some rigs can be cost-prohibitive, if you’re just starting out. Thankfully, brands like ECX have budget-minded hobbyists in mind with a strong lineup of R/C cars and trucks that are not only affordable, but built to take just about anything you can dish out.
This amazing lineup has gotten a bit larger with he addition of the Amp 2WD MT , a ready-to-run (RTR) package that gives you many high-end options for a price that’s under $150. With features like waterproof/water resistant electronics, oil-filled shocks, a 2.4GHz transmitter and radio system, and a durable, nylon composite chassis, you’ll be out of the box and bashing in no-time with this new truck.
