Menards Hookup - Bit Clone Trucks!

Post by PimpFloyd » Tue Nov 03, 2009 6:37 pm

My local Menards has it's Christmas toys in stock - they had two cases of bit clone cars and these trucks. Basic bit clone under pinnings, coil bang-bang steering etc.

They work pretty well, range is a little iffy - might need a mod. A "bit" pricey at $7.99 but hey, locally available truck fodder for the project bin.

BTW - Menards is a Midwestern based home improvement store for you "coasters" out there :-)

Enjoy :)

Good to see Menards has the Charg-n-go clones back again!

The blue one goes like snot and steers pretty well - a daily driver.

The yellar one's kinda of a dud and has "Tourettes Steering"...it's on the mod bench. ;-)

The steering mechanics on these are pretty sloppy - I may try to bush the linkages up or something. :?

I'm disappointed, our Menards only has cars that back u and turn in reverse. I'll have to check back latter.
