1st Look At The New Venom Gambler Short Course Truck

1st Look At The New Venom Gambler Short Course Truck

Venom shipped out the new RTR Gambler Short Course Truck last week and we received both a brushed and brushless version.

Only the motor, speed control and body separate these 2 trucks since they are both packed with great features like VCD precision universal drives, sealed radio box, threaded composite shocks, VR3S 3-channel 2.4ghz radio, and a 3 piece Beadlox wheel system with Griplox inserts. They even include 8 AA batteries for your radio, a 3000mah 7 cell NiMH pack, wall charger, and both come setup with a mid motor layout and parts are included to switch it to a rear motor configuration.

Look for a review of this exciting new truck soon.

  1. I’ve heard these truck’s are water proof . is that true ?

    1. Some people might state that no electric truck is 100% “waterproof” but they can be water resistant. For example the receiver is enclosed in a sealed radio box to keep out water, dirt, and debris.

  2. both traxxas.com and maxamps.com have 100% waterproof models and batteries

  3. they need to sell this in a factory team kit..roller….a.s.a.p

  4. Looks like I could snap those A-arms off with a strong breeze…

    1. Tim, I know you are just making an armchair engineering comment, but honestly it is a little too early to make claims like that.

  5. How is this New?!?!?!?!
    It was “New” 9 months ago.
    I’m surprised this wasn’t a kit to begin with, or was it supposed to be? can’t remember
    You don’t even have to be an armchair engineer to know that venom builds toys= brittle plastic and misshapen gears.
    With out seeing it I would put it on par with redcat and exceed, which has no place in the hobby grade IMO, but with all the money they make they pay the bills

    1. It was announced last year at the Nuremberg Toy Fair and was called the SCX at the time. Back then there were only CAD renderings: http://forums.radiocontrolzone.com/showthread.php?t=258462

      This has always been targeted to be released as a RTR, and is now shipping out. Perhaps they will release it as a kit down the road.

      As far as the plastics go, again I think you need to see in action 1st before you judge how it will hold up.
