All my mates were running Hornets, Frogs etc and a rich kid turned up with one of these. We were all in awe at the size of it but when he ran it he became a laughing stock. If looks = cool points he would have been the winner but in those days speeds and jumps were the way to gain Kudos.
I personally like the look of the Clud Buster, perhaps more when it's standing still than on the move as it is a bit cumbersome when running. It does really look like a proper monster truck though. At the time it was simply massive and towered above the Blackfoot. We were amazed at the sheer excess of it. 2 shockers at each corner, 2 motors, 2 gearboxes, massive wheels, 4 wheel steering and a switch to change the motors from parallel to serial configuration. In parallel both motors benefit from the full voltage and it's faster but at the expense of run-time.
A model that's really stood the test of time. Not incredibly expensive or rare and often sought for their gearboxes or as the basis for a crawler project but still a good looking monster truck.
