The Super Clod Buster is an extremely ancient design made decades ago, I would not go for it. Currently the top of the line electric monster truck is the Traxxas E-Revo or Traxxas Summit. They both have electronic speed controllers that take the same signal that servos do, so if the microcontroller can control servos, it can control the electronic speed controller.
Man, e-revo is built for speeeeeed. Walking pace is nothing for it... with brushless motors you can get 50+.Do not buy a motor controller, buy an electronic speed controller.The ESC has the same connections as a servo - however, you must disconnect the center wire (positive) from the Boe-bot board or whatever you are using. ESCs are designed to output 5v from the center wire and that would not be good for your board.
