Side guards / battery trays
Durable shaped composite extra large side guards / battery trays that follow the line of the chassis, and mount with 5 screws each side. Front and sides high enough to keep the dirt out. The guards/trays create a lot of stability. The batteries are mounted in longitudinal fashion, keeping the weight very low in the car. The battery trays features easy to use Serpent marked felcron TM straps to secure the batteries in place. Fits 2S and 3S batteries.
The motor is placed in the most optimal position in the car, keeping motor-forces and transmission parts / alignment in mind. Only one-screw is needed to secure the BL motor, in the nicely designed durable machined aluminium motormount. Space for additional motor-cooling available as needed. The space for the motor allows mounting all popular buggy and monster truck motors.
Composite chassis braces
Allows the chassis to flex which helps improve bump handling. Front and rear.
Front bumper system
The durable composite front bumper system will absorb the worst of head on crashes and will allow for save nose landings
The rear bumper section is a very durable unit, easy to disassemble, and fits well with the rear of the body, to absorb the worst of back-end crashes.
Fully expert pre assembled and pre-set chassis and electronics.
DragonRc 2.4 GHz steering wheel type transmitter with plenty settings and good range. Comes with small and light receiver.
DragonRC waterproof speed controller with a massive 150A capacity to control the brushless motor and 4S or 6S battery power
DragonRC long body 1940kV brushless motor with easy color coded connectors
Prepainted and pre-cut Monster Truck body.
Premounted oversized tyres/wheels heavy duty profile for incredible grip.
Very narrow 3mm 7075T6 aluminium chassis, with machining on the upper face to make it lighter in strategic locations and to control flex. Kick-up front for proper landings. Angled side to increase cornering clearance, and secure and easy mounting side guards with 5 screws. Countersunk holes. Overall the Monster Truck is designed to keep the weight very central and near to the centerline as possible, to create a great overall balance.
Very long and durable composite lower wishbones, combined with upper spring-steel trackrods. 2 lower shock-mount positions. Downstops can be used as needed.
Front steering / servo saver / angled
Innovative angled front steering assembly to reduce the angle of difference between the total caster and steering plane. Therefore you will have less bump steer and a truer steering Ackerman through the entire range of suspension.
Adjustable spring loaded servo-saver system with interchangeable Ackermann plates. With the design of the steering bell cranks when changing the Ackerman you will not need to adjust your steering tie rods. Very easy to access and set-up.
The Inboard Bell crank keeps the lever and linkage inside the car. It will aid in the prevention of damage to the steering system. Zero scrub radiuses on steering knuckle, helps reduce the jacking effect created by your steering knuckle offset. It provides a more direct fell while keeping the cars chassis more level while turning.
The front roll center can be changed quickly by moving the steering knuckle shims to their appropriate locations.
Topped off with a strong composite top-plate.
Very durable front steeringblock/c-hub assembly.
Long and lightweight spring steel units with pressed in steel pins, laser-engraved. Same length front and rear.

Receiver box / servo mount / speedo mount
Composite one piece radiobox to securely mount the servo, speedo and receiver. For optimum balance the light receiver fits the top-case easy, with a small opening to allow cable to protrude. The speedo seats very low on a plate just above the chassis, so short cables can be used to the motor. The servo is mounted in a vertical fashion.
Optimized central gear-diff with 52T super-hard spur-gear. Very small, compact design to reduce rotating mass to the max.
Durable but light and thin Serpent spring steel, laser engraved shafts.
