Thumbs up Damn, I'm Hooked!

Received my Monster on Friday and even though I didn't have much time to play this weekend, by Sunday night Iím hooked! I didnít want to get distracted with Overlands so I stuck with racers (MR-01 & MR-02) & F1ís. Then the Monster showed up and caught my eye.
Now I canít figure out why I never bought an Overland.

The stock Monster is very cool. I am able to cruise around the house and have fun! I have a large area that is floored with quarry tile. The stock Monster is tons of fun to run on that surface. You can run a drift course and have great fun. I had a lot fun spinning brodies! Full throttle forward, then full brakes and turn right, or left.

On the RCP-Track, the Monster was equally fun. I was able to run pretty much between 80% & full throttle around most of the track. The fun part is, after crashing into the rail, you are able to just climb over everything and get back on course.
That is very cool.

This evening I installed a A-BB Motor with the 9T pinion gear. The results were amazing! I first practiced wheelies on the longest straight section of the RCP-Track. This is so much fun and there is no problem popping them. Then to the off road track. Using stock, tires without foam inserts, I think this thing could just about climb trees. I can hardly wait to see how it handles with some GPM Radials, Oil Shocks & Mini-ZRacer Dry Racing Bearings!
When I can get them, that is.

wow, this little monster is fun indeed! I just got 1 yesterday after not being sure for a while what to get : a monster or an overland. I must say I'm very happy to have picked up the monster (although I'd probably also have been happy with an overland )
I've had much more fun driving this than trying my MR-02 for the first time (which was my first mini-z and only 1 up till now).

Some pics :
Nothing can stop the monster
This is just an easy start for a first run.
