Scored 2 Conquest Monster trucks. for free!!! Story goes - guy buys 2 trucks for his kids - XLR brushless for the eldest and the XB for the younger boy. Both break on first outing - guy calls company he bought them from to complain and they refund him. So both trucks go back in the boxes and sit on a shelf in his garage. Forward to about a week ago when my brother (a contractor) was doing some work for guy, sees the boxes asks about them and is given them for free. He attempts to charge the included Nimh batteries with included chargers and neither take a charge. Figures there is more wrong with them then bad batteries and shoves them off to me. I get two boxes with what looks like brand new trucks in them. ( not a single scratch on them ) Quick research and find out they are discontinued and parts are hard to come by. throw both batteries on my onyx and manage to slightly revive them. Use them to test electronics since I no longer use deans plugs. everything works. XB has a broken rear hub but the XLR looks fine. Swap out the deans for a TRX plug so I can run a LiPo and servos stripped. Few minutes later I got a stock ECX servo mounted up and the truck lives! Except it barely moves - slipper screams. Pull the gear cover and nut is tight, but tighten it down all the way and it still screams. Next day take slipper apart to find the pad material is some sort of hard plastic and there was a dry lubricant all over it. cleaned it up - reinstalled and truck moves! Fun little truck. Would never actually buy one of these cause of all the cons (theres alot of stuff that's just bad) but for free its for me!!! Entry level brand that is suppose to be more bang for your buck but a ECX would of been a better purchase. 2.4GHz radio (shake it in your hand and steering goes nuts) V-tread tires (air filled- no traction at all) all weather electronics (not water-proof) XLR comes with bearings- XB with bushings, wheelie bar but brushless with LiPo doesn't pull a wheelie so why is there one on the brushed? chassis design was available in a ST, SC, buggy, and a MT. Few online reviews I found compared to ECX with the comparable ECX model being better and most broke during testing which tells alot about the brand. But the price was just right FREE!!!
