With running power that pushes the boundaries of common sense for a 1/10 class machine, you can turn local open space into your own private rough road race track. The deep stroke 4-wheel independent suspension and full-time 4WD drive-train powered by the 18-size engine means nothing can stand in your way. Fully-factory assembled and in a Readyset package for instant off-road excitement.
