This is the Kyosho Mad Force Kruiser VE 2.0 1/8 ReadySet Monster Truck, with an included 2.4GHz Radio System, Orion NEON 8BL Brushless Motor & Orion Vortex R8 Electric Speed Control. 

Drivers and spectators alike will be blown away by the explosive acceleration of the Kruiser VE as soon as the throttle trigger is pulled on this intimidating monster truck. Acceleration is so powerful, good control of the front end will be needed to prevent back flips from a standing start. Needless to say, wheelies are a breeze! You will also believe a truck can fly if you have a jump ramp nearby. The energy source for this extraordinary power and performance comes from the Team Orion brushless motor system and delivers powerful output like you have never experienced before. And with a heavy-duty chassis and drive train to back it up, the MAD FORCE Kruiser VE 2.0 demonstrates superior durability time and again.

This truck is available as a Readyset with a pre-assembled chassis, so just arrange your own batteries for the chassis and transmitter and a battery charger and you’re ready to crunch in true monster truck power and style. With the high performance 2.4GHz “Syncro KT-231P” R/C system included, free control and setting adjustments are provided without the worry of frequency bands. The failsafe function applies full brakes if the radio signal is lost for added peace of mind. The power of dynamic Monster Truck 3D action and performance is yours to enjoy with the Mad Force Kruiser VE 2.0 including the new Synchro KT-231P!

Kyosho Mad Force Kruiser VE 2.0 1/8 ReadySet Monster Truck
Definitely an awesome truck. Bigger than expected - pleasantly surprised. Wheelies on demand. Love the way the solid axle makes the thing handle. Very scale-looking performance. Initial tweaks: Tighten slipper; Put loc-tite on the wheel nuts (mine wheel rolled right off down the street); Put loc-tite on the metal-to-metal screws (the screws will fall out); Reinforce rear body with Shoe Goo and drywall tape (you can also just wait to see where the body starts to stress). Running with 2xSMC 7200 7.2 batteries - long run times. Surprisingly quick and powerful. Definitely recommended.
