    Hi every mad/twin lovers! Finally I decided to get that project going since I do not have time to race anymore!

    SINCE I FIND IT REALLY HARD TO FIND INFORMATION ON THIS TRUCK I WILL LIST ALL PART NUMBERS, MANUFACTURERS AND PAID PRICE FOR FUTURE REFERENCES.

    This projet is about making the most heavy-duty 1/8 monster truck with tons of raw power!


    Stastistics

    Total Weight:
    Total watts output:
    Voltage:
    Gear ratio:

    Now the fun begins.

    Here's all the parts I ordered to make this Superduty Madforce!

    the final setup will change slightly to run on 12s (with superlow KV motor) for smooth long run times.

    Most likely there will be some problems running tires that big even with mad force axles, because those are some heavy a** tires! And you would surely have some clearance issues due to the size. Also, I think they would look a bit goofy and over sized compared to the truck...

    But! I think you could drop weight off of them drastically and make them look better if you would cut&glue them to fit clod sized wheels, and then shave half of the thread off. That way you would end up with a pretty nice looking and much lighter set of tires!:cool

    too bad I really like the look of those demolisher tires... Is there other tires just like those ones but in little bit smaller size?

    Tamiya Juggernaut tires are similar and are more reasonably sized.

    Thanks they look amazing! But I cant find 2 pairs. ..
    And do you know which wheels can I purchase to fit 17mm hex?

    I am still waiting on parts to finish up this build
    And after reading bunch of forums I found out that putting all batteries in front is a bad idea so I will install the esc in front in a vented box

    Any other suggestions?

    I think the hex size is 19mm, and 14mm if you take the plastic adapter off...

    There's not much to choose from if you want clod size wheels. I think the original Mad Force wheels are the best bet, because I personally like the offset they have, but if you like wider stance, then there's Mega Force and USA-1 Nitro wheels but those might be hard to find... Then there's Ofna Monster Pirate wheels(two versions with 19mm or 17mm hex), but those have the craziest offset of the bunch, and they are also slightly bigger in diameter too, so you need to stretch the tires on them a little so they look a bit funny if you ask me.

    But, if you want the most realistic wheel, and don't mind the weight, then there's RC4WD monster truck replica beadlock wheels! You just need to use a press drill to make the center holes bigger, and they bolt right on! Those have a bit too much offset if you ask me, but you can always make the axles narrower if that bothers you... I have those on my Digger which is based on a Mad Force. Check it out here: http://www.rcmt.net/forums/showthread.php?22905-1-8-Scale-Grave-Digger&p=241952#post241952

    I don't know if Clod wheels would fit if you find 12mm hex adapters, but that MIGHT be an option too. I just haven't looked into that just yet...

    And, with clod size wheels, you need to modify the knuckle arms a little like this: (RC4WD beadlocks will clear the arms, so no need to modify with them, other than file the arms a bit so the wheels don't rub)

    I finally found megaforce tires! Now i need to know which wheels fits those with my new 17mm hex and ive got my wheel problem solved!

    The other problem i will be facing is the motor running backwards. I know tekin esc and mgm esc has a reverse motor feature, but they do not seem to be running as smooth...

    I decided to go another route last night and ordered 2 x 4s batteries and a massive 200a 8s controller that has a 5800watts output.
    I also ordered a 750kv motor orginaly made for 1/5 scale the motor is huge! The can is 108mm x 40mm with a 5000 watts rating!
    And since the esc is so big their is no internal bec so I ordered the castle 20amp external bec

    I cant wait to get my new powerplant
