MGT 8.0 Thoughts

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Mornin everyone,

I was wanting to know if anybody had or had an opinion on the new MGT 8.0 monster truck.
It seemed to get good reviews but I wonder ifanyone had some experience with one.
Many have told me that the Savage or Lst2 are great bashers but I wanted to find out what I could regarding this model.
Hope you can help!!!

Thanks mpracer

Friend bought far as I can tell its really tough and fast, but the engine is in my opinion garbage...tried everything and can't get it to not overheat. So he used all the parts and put them on his 4.6's.
