Besides the EMaxx, what other 4 wheel electric monster trucks are there, if any.

The Clodbuster is discontinued isn't it?
I think Kyosho is coming out with an electric version of their Mad Force, don't know when though.

Yeah, a guy brought one in the store 2 nights ago and the Clod looked REALLY cheap in stock form. Really it looked like crap.
But, I've seen pics of people who have modded them all out and they look pretty like impressive machines, as rock crawlers go. Definately not a speed demon.

Yes I do, however I never paid attention to the run time. On a fresh charge it'll get up and go like a bat outta hell.

I have never tried it on a dirt track but I will the next time I go out bashing. I have taken it off road but compared to a t-maxx it leaves a little to be desired for the terrain versatility. It will maneiver well in dirt but is not as friendly when I try taking it over some terrain with lots of ruts. It does go insanely fast on road. It only comes with street tires but a set of off road tires was pretty cheap so I bought some of those too. Never had any problems with the belts. I played around a little with the gearing but after too many wheelies I opted for a higher toothed gear, I can't remember how many teeth though. Hope this helps.
