When you think of “dream machines”, monster trucks aren’t usually the first vehicles to come to mind. However, after you see the latest radio-controlled monster truck model from Kyosho, you may need to shuffle your wish list.
One of their latest machines is the Mad Crusher VE Readyset, a 1/8-scale monster truck featuring brushless power, a 5-link chassis, and style that screams early-80’s pickup truck.
From the beautifully detailed body to the massive 150mm x 70mm tires, this truck has style, but does it have the internal parts to match?
At the heart of the Mad Crusher VE is a 2100kv NEON 8 brushless motor (which has been mated to a Team Orion Vortex R8 ESC). All of that power is bolted to durable chassis which uses a 5-link suspension setup for smooth handling performance.
