The Source Canada: Litehawk Brute R/C Monster Truck 1:12 Scale (Refurbished) | Was $150 Now $53 (EXPIRED)

R/C vehicle fans should get a kick out of this deal! Today at The Source, you can pick up a refurbished Litehawk Brute R/C Monster Truck (1:12 Scale) for $52.50 – the regular price of this R/C monster truck is $149.99, so you’re saving $97.49! As an added bonus, your order will also qualify for free shipping.

This Litehawk Brute R/C Monster Truck (1:12 Scale) uses a 2.4GHz frequency, and can go up to 30 KM an hour! It’s quite the powerful little R/C monster truck! It also comes in random colours, so it may be blue or yellow. You’ll also need to purchase a battery pack or batteries, which are sold separately.

When I was a young lad, I used to hang out with my neighbour and watch him play with his R/C truck. It was so cool, especially since this was during the early 90’s! Our backyard used to have a huge dirt-filled terrain that all the neighbourhood kids converted into a makeshift baseball diamond (complete with cardboard bases), so my neighbour and I would play with his R/C truck around this area.

A few years later, they ended up building a shopping plaza on that terrain, and I noticed that my neighbour didn’t really play with his R/C truck any more. It may have been because he was a bit older, but either way it’s always a lot of fun to use an R/C vehicle when you’re controlling it in an interesting area outdoors.

If you were to purchase this Litehawk Brute R/C Monster Truck (1:12 Scale) at Future Shop, it would cost you $149.99, while it’s on sale for $107.88 at Amazon. I’ve listed a brief review of this R/C monster truck from a satisfied The Source customer below:

I have been looking for an RC vehicle for a long time. Litehawk offers you a quality piece that you can customize and repair as you go. If you’re looking for an RC to take you out of the toy market this is it. You will not find an RC of this quality at this price anywhere. This thing is fast, it’s like driving a lightning bolt.

Check out this deal before it’s gone! I hope you’re all enjoying your Saturday, my fellow Bargainmoosers!
