HobbyKing Basher PitBull 4WD 1/18 Mini Desert Buggy

From HobbyKing:

The Basher “PitBull” 4WD 1/18 Mini Desert Buggy is just like its namesake, small, tough and aggressive and should never be underestimated. This little desert buggy is the perfect crossover between indoors and outdoors and will happily jump down the steps at the back door and scream around the yard with no risk to your precious plants or lawn. But don’t let its size fool you this 4WD is capable of serious speed and can take jumps that are usually reserved for 1/10 off-roaders.

The PitBull needs all the grip it has in its super soft tyres to transfer the power from the 3530kV brushless motor that is crazy quick on 2S and ludicrous on 3S, try this at your own risk and get some lead to put in the front unless you like driving on the rear wheels.

It has a super durable drivetrain and suspension but we know you are going to want to push the PitBull to its limits, so there is a great range of aluminium upgrades available to take it beyond what most people would consider reasonable abuse.

We have been running the PitBull around the office, the car park and the local playground for a while now and it’s hard to give the radio back. So if you want a serious little buggy for fun inside or outside the house this is the one to get.
