Tech

Tech Overview Copy

This 4WD beast is based on the Vaterra® Ascender™ chassis - an incredibly scale off-road platform that is engineered for extreme off-road environments. It comes completely assembled and equipped with waterproof electronics so you can drive it anywhere a full-scale off-road truck would go.

LICENSED 1968 FORD F-100 PICKUP BODY

The painted, polycarbonate body is modeled after one of the most popular Ford pickups ever built. The cab is painted in an era correct two-tone color combo and you can customize it from there.

HEAVY DUTY CV FRONT SHAFTS

Heavy-duty CV front shafts handle ample abuse and help provide actual 45 degrees of steering.

STAMPED-STEEL LADDER FRAMES WITH ADJUSTABLE WHEELBASE

Adjustable, stamped steel ladder frame rails set at a 290mm wheel base. The patented adjustable frame can be reconfigured for up to four different wheel bases to fit most scale crawler bodies.

POWERFUL MOTOR AND WATERPROOF ELECTRONICS

The potent Dynamite® motor delivers all the torque you need to muscle over rock piles and power through mud and brush. A waterproof receiver, speed control and metal geared steering servo let you drive in the real world, where things get wet and the weather is often less than perfect.

METAL GEAR TRANSMISSION

In other vehicles, metal gear transmission is an upgrade. With the Ford F-100 Ascender, it comes standard.

FLOATING BATTERY TRAY

Because the floating battery tray is tied to the front axle, the weight of the battery is always over the front axle. This keeps the battery as low as possible, providing the vehicle with a lower center of gravity and enhanced crawling capabilities.

STICKY COMPOUND INTERCO SUPER SWAMPER TIRES

The realistic drivetrain and suspension are complemented by licensed replicas of Interco TSL SX Super Swamper® tires. Like the full-scale versions, their tread pattern and compound provide excellent grip at almost any angle

BIND-N-DRIVEā„¢

Bind-N-Drive™ (BND) is a transmitter-less option for RC enthusiasts who already own a surface transmitter featuring Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSM Technology. This money-saving innovation allows you to add a Bind-N-Drive vehicle to your collection without the extra cost or clutter of an extra transmitter.

LED LIGHTS

Brilliant LEDs cast more than enough light for running at night without placing a huge current demand on the battery.
