The special motor in this brushless radio controlled car is much quicker than the motors found in other models. Because it is brushless it also means the motor needs no maintenance and can handle a lot more power being pumped into it. So to take full advantage of that the standard 7.2v Ni-Cd batteries that are found in most RC car kits has been replaced with a very powerful 11.1v lithium battery along with a balanced lithium battery charger which is needed for these special batteries.
With this massive amount of power it is important that the model can handle the speed and pressure that is produced so many of the parts have been made stronger like you would find in a nitro RC car. An aluminium chassis, high torque servo, aluminium drive shaft and extra thick oil filled shocks, along with a mixture of metal and plastics mean it has a better chance of surviving a high speed impact, although is not indestructible.
The model comes fully built with everything you need to get racing apart from eight normal AA batteries for the radio handset. We have not been this excited about a new model for a long time and you will know why when you hit the throttle for the first time and see it pop a little wheelie before taking off at such a crazy speed. Highly recommended.
The model comes with a 2.4GHz controller. These have many advantages over AM/FM transmitters:
Improved reliability due to less interference at this frequency range
Quicker more responsive control
Lower power consumption
Many models can drive together at once without need for checking frequencies and crystals
WIDE COUNTERSUNK ALUMINIUM CHASSIS The wide aluminium chassis protects the insides and features countersunk screws that will protect your model from any rocky or bumpy terrain damage.
1/16th SCALE This RC car measures 260mm x 110mm x 205mm (length, height, width)
FAST BRUSHLESS MOTOR Brushless motors are much faster than standard ones. It comes with fully proportional forward and reverse electronic speed controller with aluminium heat sink and hardened spur gear to handle the extra power.
4WD WITH ALUMINIUM CENTRAL DRIVE SHAFT The front and rear working differentials greatly improve handling. They are connected by a strong aluminium central drive shaft.
ADJUSTABLE INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION WITH SWAY BARS Both the angle and tension of the oil filled shocks is adjustable. Sway bars are fitted as standard and further improve handling.
