Are you ready for the ultimate in bone breaking, car crushing, dirt pounding R/C monster truck action? You'd better be, because the Skull Crusher has arrived!
Built with one thing in mind - total domination...the Skull Crusher is not here to make friends, it's here to beat the competition into the ground!The Skull Crusher's chassis is built simple and slimline, yet reinforced in all the right places to ensure that it can take a beating.
Its gigantic monster truck tires and huge amount of suspension travel allow it to overcome just about any obstacle. There is not much that can stand in the way of this brutal beast!Power to the rear wheels is delivered from a potent brushless power system which comes pre-installed. The 2700KV brushless motor dishes out lethal torque, allowing for wheelies on demand! It's 2013, not 1993, so we don't believe in using old, dodgy brushed motors like some other brands.
To help harness the massive power of this monster, a fully adjustable wheelie bar comes pre-installed. This will help keep the truck upright while smashing the throttle. The body shell features a pre-mounted roll bar which not only looks cool, but helps to keep the shell in one piece during those "not so pretty" landings. Tough as nails construction, killer good looks, monstrous suspension travel and brutal brushless power...these are the things that make up the monster that is known as "Skull Crusher". Don't dare look directly into this beast's eyes or you may pay with your life!
Features: • Completely ready to run with power system, steering servo and 2.4gHz radio system pre-installed • Wicked long travel suspension utilizing oil-filled shocks • Massive monster truck tires and wheels • Potent brushless power system pre-installed • Fully adjustable wheelie bar included • Adjustable slipper clutch assembly • All metal gear diff/transmission assembly • High-torque steering servo pre-installed • Pre-painted and trimmed body shell
I bought a Quanum Skullcrusher a few weeks ago and then I ran it into a concrete pole today. There are a few plastic parts on the front (and one aluminum part) that broke - one was the servo linkage, one was the front bulkhead that holds the a-arms, and the other was the shock cap. The aluminum suspension hanger on the front was bent beyond repair as well. I made an assumption that spare parts are readily available for hobby grade rc cars, but I can only find a very limited selection on this site. Where can I find replacement parts like the ones mentioned above? thanks.
when you see a questoin that look at the pic of the one who asked it and you will find a box written on it "reply" press that box and then a large rectangular box will apear press on it and start typing on your keyboard, after you finished press on the "submit" box under the large rectangular box.
Hope I helped you :) if I did please hit that award cridet box thx and have a nice day :)
The pinion gear was not tightened to the motor output shaft. 2mm hex tool fixed it. Worked great for about five minutes then the throttle starts cutting out. Brought it inside to listen to it and it seems like the transmitter is sending an intermittent signal.
The throttle cutting out issue is still present, sometimes it is so bad that the truck barely moves, sometimes it drives perfectly. One of the nylock nuts that holds the upper shock on came off. Lost somewhere in the yard which wouldn't be a big deal if the little plastic bushing hadn't gotten lost also. Looks like the truck is grounded.
Aside from the fact that this truck has never run for more than 5 minutes without something breaking or falling off, even the nylock nuts are falling off. The jumpy and occasionally non existent throttle issue is a deal killer, looking for return/warranty info.
I have not bought this truck i was looking at it and reading these comments it seems like you can buy this truck from wal-mart and if you had to ask me i could buy the 1/16 turnigy brushless sct with 25amp system and put better parts than it already haves and it would be better than this wal mart truck
don't buy it! it is very fragile! few spare parts! my steering link broke yesterday after only after a low speed brush with the curb. pics are in the files. it is hard to control the wheelies and drive it and turn. my trooper sct's on these monster tires are a better buy!
This is quite obviously based on the turnigy 1/10 SCT/desert buggy platform which means there are spares and upgrades available as far as suspension components drivetrain etc,but it would be nice if we could get some of the specific spares for the "quanum" brand vehicles, like for this one, the monster tires and bodies will be much needed spares.
it appears that hk has taken a 1/16 scale chassis added some plastic brackets and braces to lift it to get clearance for monster tires and rims. already mine has tweaked a bit from some minor jumps, the 4wheel alignment is gone and it wont track straight. its like it has 4 wheel steering and it has gone wrong! LOL
check out the picture in the files. 1/10 sct on the right and 1/10 monster truck on the left. the other pic is a scale/size comparison. this truck isn't 1/10th scale, the tires and wheels are. the steering servo is 1/10 scale strong, the shocks are too thin to be so long they will bend. the wheelie bar is not functional the truck has already begun to flip by the time it hits the ground even at max extension. htis truck is still fun just fragile!
received mine today! impressed with the styling! not impressed with the fact that it is mostly plastic! this truck is meant to be a basher, it will self destruct. the suspension already has started to tweak. to many plastic brackets and braces they break hk! the suspension and frame should be all aluminum. the body/shell has parts that break off if the truck flips over. this truck is designed to have you replacing parts. it has lots of power speed is ok, but it is mostly plastic. i want some cnc aluminum suspension parts!!!!!
