Monster Garage.

http://dsc.discovery.com/ads/radioshack/monstergarage/ Monster Garage is going to make a Monte Carlo inspired by a Zip Zap. I don't really know what or how they can do that, but this puts two of my loves together. Zipzaps and Monster Garage.

Cant wait to see that episode. But what do you think they'll use Airtronics, Futaba, or Hitec gear? And will the Monster Garage Crew use there favorite (actuators) or 1/4 scale servos?

It was nice the way they did the servos in the car. They used a motor to turn the wheels with an RS VR on the steering rod. Kind of like the way combat robots are set up. They used an actuator on the brake with what looked like a 1/4 scale servo on the engine. Even had the trans hooked up some way. For those that have not seen it I will not say any more.

All I saw with the ZZ's were used to show the build days.
