The Contakt 12TR Truggy offers speed, durability and a value unheard of in its class. A 2.4 GHz 2-channel radio system eliminates frequency conflicts, while the 390 brushed motor churns out blistering acceleration and incredible speeds in excess of 15mph. Constructed from lightweight, yet strong material, the fully independent suspension and coil-over friction damper shocks support the chassis through off-road terrain. The bottom-load battery compartment provides easy access to the 1500mAh, 7.4V 2s LiPo rechargeable battery pack with High Current T-Plug. With the LiPo supplying the power, the full ball bearings throughout the transmission reduce friction and increase speed and run time.

Included is a 0.5A AC LiPo balance charger and charging bag that improves your driving-to-waiting ratio while increasing safety.
