The Barbarian NXL is a fully built, fully featured, top of the range 1/8 scale off-road monster truck, and comes with many feature enhancements to make this a superb nitro model. This is the Pro version and it is fitted with high quality components – such as an aluminium tuned pipe, is 4WD and equipped with a powerful .25 nitro engine!
It has huge 16mm super big bore oil aluminum shocks, designed to smooth the ride as it speeds over the terrain of your choice; these in turn are secured to the aluminium chassis by a hardened aluminium shock tower. Couple this with the ultra-strength front and rear bumpers and you have a model that should withstand pretty much everything you can throw at it!
Although no model is indestructible so we stock a full range of spares and upgrades to enhance and repair your model should a mishap occur! The Barbarian NXL is built using advanced components and innovative engineering to get the best performance out of your package. It has a newly developed C-hub steering system, where the king pin axis extends to the wheel centre; this feature improves steering performance. It has a specially designed suspension system, with twin adjustable rear suspension modes which allows for a flexible driving mode and a smooth driving mode.
Part of its performance is due to the lightweight ultra-compact gear box; this has a low centre of gravity, assisting with grip and control. The gearbox is also built to be highly durable, so that it can cope better with the hard knocks associated with monster truck use. It has been engineered with a gear ratio that offers both superb acceleration and a high top speed. Not only this but the gearbox consists of all steel gear and is of a pinion design which makes it easier to maintain and repair.
The barbarian NXL is built around a narrow, but solid aluminum chassis; this centralised chassis design allows quicker steering and faster response. The blows are cushioned by the 16mm super big bore oil shocks, see pictures above. It also has fully adjustable sway bar ball cups, for customisable and better traction and stability, depending on whether you’re speeding across tarmac or roughing it over gravel and tougher terrain. Additionally the front bumper is built so that it moves backwards on impact, this can prevent the chassis from becoming distorted or even broken when landing after jumps. All the linkages can be set with adjustable turnbuckle.
Its 1/8th scale length of 550mm and 28mm of ground clearance mean this nitro truck is a real big boys toy – you will enjoy this!
