I Am Wanting To Buy A Monster Beetle, However I See Theres Also A Monster Beetle Pro Version With The 8 Shocks And Chassis Same As The Monster Truck, My Questions Is I Will Be Running At The Park On Grass And Dirt, Im Not A Big Jumper So Maybe An Ocassional Small Jump Or 2, If Anyone Has Had The Chance To Drive Either Of These Cars I Would Like Your Opinion, Is The Plain Monster Beetle A Better Handler And Less Tippy In The Turns Because Of The 4 Shock Set Up And Slightly Lower Center Of Gravity, The Monster Truck And Beetle Pro Seem Easily Rolled Over While Turning At High Speeds From What I Have Seen In Videos, Any Help Would Be Appreciated,

Well the monster beetle has different front end all togetther it shares the front end as a marder .. weaker front arms .. different front shocks and shock tower , no TVP's .
i had a monster beetle set-up but changed into a pro version without next to no difference IMO ..
grab a pro version and work with shock oil set-up and you'll be a happy camper ..

I too have a MB pro.It's the way to go,I think the MT wheels and tires are too much for the single shock set up.It also has the stronger arms andchassis braces.:)

Does anyone have confirmation on the VW issue? Or a link to a court case?
I'm thinking they must have let the Patent expire but I don't know?

Bryan, have you ever been told that you are addited to gassers beyond any possible cure ?... Heck, who the hell here would want to be cured of such a wonderful addition anyway. NOT ME...:clown:
Congratulation on your new beasts. How many do you have now ?... I'm trying to get a HPI Baja as a back-up if broke my truck (Summer time here is too valuable for us to waste on down-times), which I know I will. By the end of the Summer, I might get a MCD Baja 1000. I love that thing, but I want you guys to be guinea pigs first to find out any "bugs"... :trout:
BTW, are you home yet ?...
