From HobbyKing:

H.King “Desert Fox” 1/10 4WD Desert Racer(RTR) is ready for you to conquer the outdoors, you can start with the backyard and work your way up to North Africa and from there the world. This tough little rc buggy is built for bashing in the harshest of environments with a powerful 3000kv motor and tough 2.5mm aluminium chassis.

The Desert Fox comes packed with features that you would normally only find on top level RC buggies, such as a slipper clutch that can be tuned to suit different grip levels, threaded shocks for easy adjustability, two shock mount locations on the arms for added tuning, metal sealed gear diff and a powerful 3000kV motor. The sealed radio box and waterproof ESC mean you can run it in almost any conditions and the super soft, scale off-road tyres will work well on most surfaces from rocky tracks to paved roads.

Because of its roomy interior and plenty of flat surfaces, the Desert Fox is great for adding accessories such as LEDs in the light buckets on the roll cage or an engine sound simulator, it will also make a great FPV platform for roving projects.

With this Ready to Run version all you need is a suitable 2S car battery and you’re ready to go.

The Desert Fox won’t take any prisoners in the battle for backyard superiority and will make other buggies in its class eat its dust for dessert!
