Pretty fly, a little expensive though. Videos would be nice.

With a little modding it could make a pretty cool crawler

no, it's made of hopes and dreams. yes, it's (quite obviously) plastic

an MSRP of $335 would put shop-cost at $170ish, which would make street price between $175 and $200. not bad.

I might have to snag one and BL that suckah!

the truck is a 1/12 scale so yes the tries are around BIG 2.2 size (Moabs, Masher 2Ks) The tires on the WK are 5.4" a little bigger than 2.2's.

I'm dfffinietely picking one up. Run brushless in it for a week then rape the axles outta it and make another crawler.

my two current crawlers are running TLT axles with stealth trannys and pede drive shafts. The Wheely King's axles look like the same width but thicker. It's like a 10th scale diff in that axle so... but we're dieing for stronger stuff so this is the next natural progression for sure.

This thing looks awesome!! Tower has it listed at $189.99 I definitely want one for crawling! It doesn't look like it would be hard to convert to 4wd either. Maybe HPI will make a conversion for it if enough people want one with 4wd.
