At a Glance

Crawling fun doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down. With Losi’s 1/10-scale Night Crawler™ RTR, you can hit the rocks any time, day or night. This ready-to-run crawler is outfitted with bright LED lights specifically designed for navigating rocky terrain after hours. Whether you’re new to the crawling world or an experienced driver, you’ll have a blast attacking the rocks all night long.

While other crawlers require some modifications before they’re ready for the rocks, the 1/10-scale Night Crawler RTR is good to go right out of the box. Included is an electronics package with a LiPo compatible ESC that features voltage cutoff, so both your vehicle and battery will be protected.

Powering this crawler is easier than ever, a 540-sized crawler-specific 55T motor and high-torque metal gear steering servo will get you up and over obstacles in no time. Plus, a worm-gear drive with a smaller differential case gives you increased ground clearance.

Better still, a Losi® radio system with Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM technology puts you in total control, with no interference. The fun with the 1/10-scale Night Crawler RTR lasts all day, and all night.
