I dont understand why people complain to HK they buy in bulk they dont open every box to see if there is a problem if you have a problem ask HK dont have an attidude or you wont get anywhere ,contact the manufacturer a lot of people dont take the time to check the truck they take it out of the box charge the battery then flog it around the paddock check it first .
Received my monster truck, was disapointed about the front right rim, nearly all the chrome was missing the right rear toein adjustment wasn't set properly, the axel kept coming out which made it run on 3 wheels so i adjusted in which solved the problem. wheel nuts kept coming loose so i replaced them with lock nuts and spring washers, have to keep checking the grub screws on the wheel spacers and the brake spacer, now that i have fixed these problems it works properly. I am now very happy, this truck really packs a punch and runs very good now, if you are thinking of buying one you will be very happy but make sure you check everything, i couldn't be bothered complaining to HK. you dont seem to get anywhere but all in all it is a good truck any questions i will be glad to help.you can get spare parts from HK.
Strait off the bat I want to say excellent value for money. That being said, it is not perfect out of the box and there is a fair amount of work to do out of the box before you start it up. First thing to do is take off all the wheels, you will see aluminum blocks with 2 set screws. The shaft is keyed for the set screws but on two wheels I found that the block wasn't tightened onto the keying. I would recommend blue thread lock on these set screws as well. If you fail to do this it will work the wheel nut off the shaft and the wheel will fall off on one side and over tighten on the other. I would do a good look over the whole car for loose screws, one that I lost was the screw holding on the front sway bar to the lower arm. On mine the clutch dragged on the bell out of the box. I took the screws off holding the bell and it seems to be because the bell wasn't aligned properly. I aligned it as best I could but couldn't get it perfect. At idle the clutch still drags slightly but not enough to move the truck. I'm hoping it will wear enough eventually to stop. Also watch out for the oil that comes with the truck, on mine the air filter oil bottle had come open and the oil was in the vacuum sealed bag. You will probably want to oil the shocks too, mine seemed dry out of the box but I haven't made it to filling them quite yet. The truck came with a manual which wasn't anything
