Equipped with a 25A brushless power system, this little 1/16 truck is both powerful and fast. Small and quiet enough to zap around the living room on a 2S LiPo pack, or adjust the suspension travel and take on tougher terrain at your local park or backyard. The TURNIGY Stadium truck is alot of fun with a plenty of performance features usually only available on larger trucks.

I got a new1 of these ran it for 1st time 2day,was OK to begin with but then started "cogging" but would only do it on slow...then it stopped altogether,then just bleeped once every so often,I thought it was the battery but on turning it off back on it seemed OK til I throttled then sits bleeping once as before..... Changing the battery makes no difference at all, the only thing I found is the motor is incredibly hot,almost too hot too touch, so I disconnected the battery and thought I'd try and pick someone's brains to see if I can be steered in the right direction. The car itself is brand new but haven't had chance to run it til today...ANY help will be welcomed Thnx
I just got this delivered and it doesnt move.
Plugged in my rx, and i am getting servo/steering movement but not throttle response.
The ESC blinks red pause then red green red quickly with the associated beeps.
Would it be the motor or the the ESC?
How would i be able to test with no other motor connectors?
So i just swapped channel 1 and 2 around on the rx. The esc and motor do work. Looks like i have something programmed wrong on the rx. I have the FS-GT3C and the servo plugged into channel one and the esc plugged into channel 2.
What setting would i have wrong?
Everything is new!
Hey, I found on google a guy called Martin Melchior that gives many tips to upgrade this small car and make it a beast! I recommend it! ***********martinmelchior.be/2013/06/how-i-upgraded- my-hobbyking-monster.html?showComment=1380852801975# c8771464602257565449
Does anyone know which engine I can have in this? It says the esc can handle 4s but the engine only 2s
Received and tested today. It's for my Son's xmas present so didn't do much. Put in a 1300 3S which fitted in fine, and this little things flies and was heaps of fun. Had to pry it out of my hands to ensure it stayed good as new for xmas! Had a problem with the servo arm slipping which sucked, so initially had no steering. Needed to CA the arm on to fix it but good as gold now. Will eventually order a new servo to sort it but for now it's perfect. Can't wait to see the look on my sons face when it unwraps this!

This is crazy fast. I put a 3S 2200mah (30c) Turnigy lipo on it. The battery holder doesn't clip it in, but it still fits in the battery area. ESC heats up but is still not too hot to touch. The paper instructions state that it handles up to a 16V battery. Will be getting a 4s and testing out.
I have never done RC cars before so I am still getting used to the controls with breaking vs reverse and drive. Already confirmed that it takes a beating and keeps on running. I jumped it off a 3 foot dirt pile at full speed. It went off at a bad angle and rolled for a good 10-15 feet and landed on wheels and kept going - zero damage.
I am buying another as soon as they are back in stock!
I got this about a week ago and it arrive perfectly packed without damage. It's actually quite a nice little rig....I am impressed given the cost and the fact it's brushess right out of the box. I ended up using a 3s 1500mah here www.link Installation with the radio and ESC was a snap! With a 3s pack this thing is outrageously fast....a blip of the throttle and it just flips upside down-it's a screamer. The ESC has reverse and braking...it didn't get excessively warm....all in all, I am very happy with this little rocket. I would like to see some repalcement/hop up parts start to appear.

Este coche es una pasada. Tiene mucha potencia y es muy controlable. Yo lo he equipado con una bateria de 1550 Rhino que aunque no cabe perfectamente en el hueco, queda bin sujeta. El mando de HK para coches va perfecto. Se monta todo en 15 minutos y a correr. La bateria dura 15 minutos sin descargarla al mximo. Lo recomiendo totalmente. No admite baterias 3s ni de ms de 2000 mAh. Lleva conector XT60.

This was a great fun little truck to play with. I shoe-horned a 2200mAh 3S into it and had a blast, however I dont think the ESC is rated to go that high, so I would suggest an 1800 or smaller 2S for a lighter, faster truck that will last alot longer. Don't be mistaken by it's size, this is a fast truck when set up right!
