ECX Barrage — Now You Can Build Your Own!

ECX Barrage — Now You Can Build Your Own!

Nice! We liked the RTR Barrage when we reviewed it back in our March 2017 issue, and now ECX has a kit version–or “Build to Drive,” to be more precise. The “BTD” concept means you get assembly tools, batteries, and electronics right in the box. All you add is paint. The “kit” Barrage also gets a few upgrades over the RTR, and mounts its shocks outside the chassis plates–that’s one less mod to make. Full deets below, and more pics.


ECX 1.9 Barrage 4WD Scaler Build-To-Drive Kit (1)

From ECX:
Using the same “pre-built critical parts” formula and manual guidelines as the successful ECX® AMP™ MT Build-To-Drive™ Kit, the ECX 1.9 Barrage® 4WD Scaler Build-To-Drive™ Kit offers the same build experience on a new and exciting platform. The Barrage Kit comes with everything needed to get started, including the tools, parts, and electronics. It even comes with its differential, shocks, and wheels assembled, so all you need to do is follow the instructions and you’ll be ready to navigate baseball-sized rock piles and tall weeds in no time. Perfect for the backyard, the park, desert or driveway, get your hands dirty with the nearly unstoppable ECX 1.9 Barrage 4WD Scaler Kit.

The Kit version differences from the RTR version are motor plate for larger 390 motor (more power and torque), longer axles and housings (alleviates long wheel hex and has less wheel scrub and better handling), aluminum servo mount (more servo options), 4-point links (improves articulation), aluminum steering links (stronger than plastic), outboard shocks (moved to outside chassis (better handling, articulation, realism and looks).
