Vaterra Adds Corvette Z51 Stingray to V100-S Lineup

Jun 27, 2014 1 Comment by

We’re already fans of Vaterra’s rugged V100-S, but we like it even more dressed up as a the new Stingray. Lots of great detail here, and the car looks killer on the move–play the video, you’ll see.

Looks like the standard V100-S specs under the sleek new shell, so we’re talking full-time shaft-driven 4WD with CV-style shafts, brushed 540 power, and Spektrum DX2E radio gear (which means this ‘Vette is AVC-ready). Official specs and hype from Vaterra after all the photos.

For all the latest gear, have a look at our Hot News & New Stuff forum, which you really should bookmark so you can keep up with all the, you know, hot news and new stuff.
