Kyosho DMT 4WD .18GP Ready Set

Jan 05, 2011 No Comments by

Delivers 1/8 power and performance, but retains the user-friendliness of 1/10 size. Even if this is your first GP model, the easy control of the “DMT” puts spectacular running performance at your fingertips. With similar size and dimensions to 1/8 class, this monster features 1/8 wheels from the Inferno ST-RR truggy. The full time 4WD drive train is powered by the easy-to-use GXR18SP engine and in combination with long span arms on the 4-wheel independent double-wishbone suspension, provides simply awesome performance on any surface from blacktop to gravel and even any rough terrain you can think of. While built tough for off-road, the dynamic performance of the DMT is also sharp on prepared tracks as well, which has never been a feature in a monster truck up until now. As a factory assembled Readyset with a 2.4GHz R/C system installed, simply switch the power ON and enjoy dynamic off-road trucking action with the easy yet powerful performance of the DMT!
