The Rock Rider BL Story
Off-road cars, buggies and monster trucks are fabulous, however there are times when you just fancy something a little unusual, perhaps with a look and performance that adds a new dimension to your RC driving and turns heads wherever it goes? Feeding off the massive popularity of the existing Rock Rider, Helion design engineers were tasked with making it even faster and, to reflect its new status, giving it a striking new paint job. They’ve done well. Packing a 3300kV brushless motor, 50A all-weather ESC and the same, proven, 4WD powertrain that gives the Rock Rider platform its beans, the Rock Rider Brushless is a car that’s been thoroughly tested in the full range of off-road conditions and has passed with flying colors.
Pop the clips, lift the body and beneath you’ll find a finely-tuned blend of high-strength composites that combine with a proven transmission and suspension system to provide traction and stability when you most need it. From the arsenal of carefully considered mechanical weaponry and there’s much to admire, not least a solid 6-link rear axle that offers almost limitless tuning options, plus corner-to-corner aluminum threaded shocks for easy pre-load adjustment, smooth movement, and consistent handling. Topped with an independent front suspension system and high-grip all-weather tires all the crucial boxes have been checked. With hex bolts throughout, a fully protected spur gear housing and a shock-absorbing sprung servo saver, we’ve made low maintenance a priority, too.
A take-anywhere trailblazer, mud bogger, hill climber and dust blaster, the Rock Rider Brushless is a performance-enhanced all-terrain all-rounder that’ll quickly become your grab ‘n’ go truck.
Helion Brushless Power System
Equipped with a high-performance Helion 3300kV brushless motor, a 50 amp all-weather ESC and the same proven 4WD powertrain that’s enjoyed by Rock Rider BR owners, you can be assured of efficiency, speed and reliable power no matter what the conditions.
1800mAh Battery and AC Charger
