This is the Associated Monster GT 8.0 1/8 scale Glow Powered Monster Truck RTR. For superior muscle, check out the Team Associated Monster GT 8.0 RTR! Born for monster mayhem right out of the box, it features a .50 engine for insane power, an XP3G 2.4GHz 3-channel Radio System, and specially designed off-road tires with gargantuan grip, 4-shoe aluminum clutch, electric Pro-Start system, glow igniter, fuel bottle and much more!

Insane ground-pounding power will be unleashed when you start up the Team Associated Monster GT 8.0 RTR! Based on the original MGT design, with the addition of an AE 8.0cc engine, the Monster GT 8.0 RTR is Team Associated’s most powerful truck to date!

Reinforced to handle the massive power the 8.0cc engine delivers, the Team Associated Monster GT 8.0 RTR comes factory assembled with the XP3G 2.4GHz 3-channel Radio System, the Pro-Start engine starting system, a 2-speed automatic transmission with reverse, eight coil-over oil filled shocks, full precision ball bearings, specially designed Team Associated all-terrain tires, and a painted body.

The business end of the Monster GT is the AE 4.60 engine. Team Associated has equipped the big block with a pull start and a hex-shaft/drill start so there's always a way to start it. The engine produces enough power to move the Monster GT 8.0 RTR rather quickly; we’re talking wheelies on command!

The Team Associated Monster GT 8.0 RTR resides somewhere in the land between 1/8th scale and 1/6th scale and definitely lives up to Team Associated's code name: Bigger, Faster, Tougher.

Had the truck for a couple weeks now and after dialing the sweet spot, not much will touch this thing. Had to use lock tight on the motor plate and a few other places to avoid loose screws but once that was!!!!
