Mar 13, 2014 No Comments by

Basher’s Nitro Circus line now includes a 4WD short-course machine, offered as an “Almost Ready to Run” model ready for the transmitter, receiver, and batteries of your choice. Specs are similar to the Nitro Circus monster truck (as tested in our latest issue), with an aluminum chassis, oversized aluminum shocks, a triple-diff drivetrain, 35-amp speed control, and 2080KV motor.

Video and official hype after the pics; for more photos and discussion, see the truck’s page in our Hot News & New Stuff forum.

New from Basher, the officially licenced Nitro Circus 4×4 Short Course Truck! Hit the dirt hard with Brushless 4-wheel drive power! The Basher Nitro Circus 4×4 1/10 Short Course Truck comes pre-assembled and will have you ready to roost the competition in no time! All you will need is your own receiver, transmitter and lipoly battery. Inspired by the crew over at the Nitro Circus, this 1/10th scale, grin inducing short course truck is built to handle everything you throw at it! Don’t think outside the box, SMASH through it while popping a wheelie and launching off a ramp!

The Basher Nitro Circus 4×4 SCT features a monster 3-cell capable brushless power system ready for your batteries and puts all that power down through a rugged 4WD drive transmission. Alloy shocks and heavy duty components allow this truck plow through the roughest of terrain and just keep on truck’n!

The attention to detail on this truck is extraordinary. The engineers and designers at Basher underwent an extensive testing and development process to ensure no shortcuts were taken. Team Basher understand the importance of after sales support and offer a full range of spares for your battle scared truck along with an awesome range of hop-up parts to upgrade your ride.

The aluminum motor mount includes cooling fins and a solid clamp style mounting system to ensure your truck will handle the rough stuff and keep coming back for more. The heavy duty metal drive shaft will keep putting the power down to the large 110mm short course truck tires. Traction to all four wheels is maximized via the three oil filled differentials, soft compound rubber tires and soft foam wheel inserts.

This truck features fully adjustable suspension and oil filled shocks to fine tune the ride to the conditions of your favorite track or bashing spot. The innovative and adjustable battery compartment will accommodate a wide variety of different packs. Chassis guides help keep out unwanted dirt and debris.

The Nitro Circus crew drove it like they stole it and in the end were excited about putting their hard earned name on it. Who knows, maybe it will have a cameo in their next movie or live show?
