Although not considered a traditional monster truck, they still have monster coolness.

Wow! That Drag'n Master looks wicked! I've never seen that before. Do you know what size those rear tires are? I've often wondered if there were some tires out there that would better suit the Clod Buster in terms of proper scale.

I forgot all about that thing. I always wanted one of those. Had the same wheels as the high roller on the rear. It was really a basic chassis and suspension design though. Still wanted one.

Yep you are correct. The rear tires are from the MRP high roller, The front tires are from the Stage II and Pro-110, the front A-arms are from the GP-10. Only thing new is the chassis, gears and body.. :lol: I am looking for an old ZETA puller speed control for it and then it is complete. Here are some pics of the inside. The privies owner had made a lead weight for the front. I was able to coat it with plastic coat to match the chassis. The dual engines are pretty cool and with the dual HUGE gears the thing moves pretty slow.

MRP really had some cool products. It's a shame they stopped production later on. I wonder in what direction the company would have taken had they survived...

Man, nice to see a big thread on the MRP High Roller since I was last around here. I haven't been on here in well over a few years. I am down to only having one High Roller and I am shocked to see what they are worth now a days. Lets keep this thread going.

I have a couple of Highrollers and was wondering if I could see some pics of your tranny? Did you keep the stock hight or eliminate one gear to make it a little faster?

I forgot that I made the hinge pins too. I mainly kept it stock exept I made my motor mount except a 12 tooth pinion gear. Without the extra idler gear the truck will put alot of stress on the diff gear sstripping them out. The stock gearing is correct for the scale. I also improved the suspension travel a little more travel. :)
