Monster Jam Grave Digger Freestyle Force RC Review (Spin Master)

Monster Jam Grave Digger Freestyle Force RC
What It Is

This RC car is play ready in minutes, as long as you have two AAA batteries on hand. Use the left stick to drive the truck forward and backward, and the right stick to turn left and right. Depending on your experience with RC cars, this may take a little getting used to, but don't worry, you'll catch on quickly. If you want to correct your wheel alignment, just press up on the left stick and one of the two arrow buttons below the right stick, depending on the direction you need to straighten out your front wheels. This is useful to get reoriented after driving around like a maniac.

Now for the part you've all been waiting for: Press the right trigger to go into a sustained tail wheelie!. Of course you can do more than just admire the cool trick; you can drive around, do spins, and jumps, all while in a wheelie. Press the right trigger to go into a front wheelie, if that's more your style. To go back to quadruped mode, simply press the trigger for a second time. There are two speed settings on the controller: beginner and advanced modes. Speed while performing wheelies is limited in beginner mode for smooth driving, however there is no such limit in advanced mode.

Is It Fun?

Absolutely! It has all the fun and precision of a conventional RC car, with awesome wheelie tricks.

Who It’s For

The Grave Digger Freestyle Force RC is great for any monster truck enthusiast aged 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Performance of the car may be affected if the wheels become dirty. In this case, have an adult clean the tires with a damp cloth by hand. Do not submerge the toy or expose it to running water.

To install the batteries in the controller, just press down on the button on the back with a thin implement, and slide off the battery cover for the controller.

If the car fails to enter a wheelie on one press of a shoulder button, simply wait a moment and try again. Makes sure the car has a couple feet of space in front and back to enter a wheelie.
