Available in two versions Monster Truck or Truck
This is a high spec model that not only is high quality and pro built but is also highly upgradeable. This model is not to be confused with the entry level RC cars, this is a proper RC hobby racing machine! These models are kitted out with 2.4Ghz wheel type controllers. Fitted with Aluminium centre drive shaft, high spec waterproof electronic speed control, aluminium capped oil filled shocks, performance differentials, aluminium radio tray and much more, the Bug Crusher is in a league of its own.
As standard the Bug Crusher comes with a high precision 540 motor, waterproof speed controller and 7.2V 1800mah Tamiya type battery pack. This setup gives more than enough power and speed for any serious racer but if you are the kind of person that likes to take things to the extreme then you can upgrade your model with a brushless kit. With the brushless motor, ESC and Li-po battery the truck will go ridiculously quick and will take some real skill to control. These upgrades are available as optional extras at the top of this page, if you add these to your basket please note they will not come fitted so you will need to fit yourself. The upgrade kit contains 1 x high power brushless motor, 1 x brushless ESC, 1 x 11.1V 2200mah LiPo battery and 1 x LiPo battery charger.

WATERPROOF SERVO, ESC & RECEIVER

POWERFUL RC540 MOTOR WITH ANODIZED ALUMINIUM HEAT SINK
A fast RC540 motor with aluminium heat sink to keep it cool and operating at its peak. The motor is connected to an electronic speed control that gives full proportional speed both in forward and reverse.
OIL FILLED SHOCKS
The angle of the aluminium capped shocks can be adjusted to suit your driving preference and terrain. They are mounted using ball joints to give a little flexibility. Each wheel has two shocks to give the extra suspension needed on a monster truck.
ALUMINIUM CENTRAL DRIVE SHAFT

Specially treaded tyres give lots of grip off road and good speed on road.

SPRING LOADED FRONT AND REAR BUMPERS
This model comes fitted with spring loaded front and back bumpers that can help to avoid damage in the event of a crash.

How long should I charge my battery for?
- Posted byon Friday, 11 September 2020
Hi, the charge time will be around 6-8 hours
If we want to buy another battery so you can run the bug crusher for more than 10+ mins, what battery do you recommend and do we need another charger, or the one supplied enough? Is there a discount for ordering two Bug Crushers?
- Posted byon Friday, 6 April 2018
Please search the below part code using the search bar on our site for a spare battery
If you have multiple batteries can you just take like just charge like take 4 of them fully charged up and take it out and swap batteries on site then you would have 40 to 60 minutes play time ,do the batteries just unplug and swap over
- Posted byon Monday, 27 November 2017
If you have multiple fully charged batteries, they can be swapped out from the model very easily to extend use.

Hi, I'm looking to purchase the Bug Crusher 2.4G Electric RC Monster Truck - WITH FREE SPARE BATTERY WORTH £14.99! Will this come built and ready to go, as i dont want to build one ? Also are the 8 batteries required for the controller ? cheers
- Posted byon Tuesday, 14 March 2017Hi, Thank you for your question. Yes this is a pre-built model. The 8 batteries are for the transmitter.
Hi, Does the truck come with radio controller or you need to buy it. Is it ready to use out of the box?
- Posted byon Tuesday, 9 August 2016
It comes with everything needed to run the model except for standard AA batteries for the transmitter.
Is this model waterproof or water resistant please?
- Posted byon Tuesday, 24 May 2016
Hi, on this model the manufacturer says the electronics are "waterproof" but I think if you held them under water they would break. It is more like they are water resistant, so if they are splashed in a pudle or something they will be ok.
Hi can you buy the charger separate if so which one would I need to order ?
- Posted byon Monday, 29 February 2016Hi, Thank you for your question, This model is ready to run and therefore a charger is supplied.
How fast would this RC truck go?
- Posted byon Sunday, 17 January 2016
Hi, we don't really like to quote speeds because manufacturers always exagerate and so do our competitors. So if we are honest and quote real speeds and our competitors exagerate then people will buy from the exagerating competitors because they will believe what they say. The best thing is to do a search of the model you are interested in on youtube so you can actually see it going.
Hi, Is a battery charger supplied with this? Thanks Nathen
- Posted byon Thursday, 19 November 2015Hi, Yes, that is correct.
Is speed the only difference between this version and the brushless version? Will this version perform the same off road even with the reduced power compared to the brushless version?
- Posted byon Wednesday, 11 November 2015
Hi, yes the difference is the speed. The performance in terms of suspension etc for off road is the same.
