HobbyKing Updates The BSR ARR Berserker 1/8 Electric Truggy [VIDEO]

HobbyKing Updates The BSR ARR Berserker 1/8 Electric Truggy [VIDEO]

From HobbyKing:
The Berserker 1/8 Truggy is for those who like driving on the edge of sensible and it has been built tough and reliable to make sure you can stay there. When we were developing this truggy our brief was a model that was out of the box faster than anything we have made before and capable of doing that time and time again. From the chassis to the suspension, to the power system and even it’s distinctive yellow and black painted polycarbonate shell, nothing has been overlooked to ensure it is the best available.

Now the Berserker has been upgraded to give a superior driving experience. The tires have been totally changed to give better traction. They are made of a softer compound and have a higher density foam inners. To help with the ride the front and rear shocks have had a change of oils that will help to keep you going over the roughest terrain. To complete the changes the differential oils have been changed to provide better performance.

The Berserker is packed full of features that will leave the others for dead. To start with there is a solid aluminum chassis with aluminum front and rear shock towers to keep everything aligned and stable. High quality, big bore, oil filled shocks are used for the performance and handling you would expect in a high-end race truggy. The sealed radio box keeps your receiver safe from any knocks and the huge soft square pin tires are a great balance of performance to keep you moving over most surfaces from rocky trails to paved roads.

There are heaps of power already set up in the Berserker as it comes with a powerful drivetrain with a super high torque Turnigy XK 4082-1450KV motor being run from the reliable Trackstar 150A ESC giving an extreme performance. The ever-reliable Turnigy HV 1269 servo will keep you steering the right path no matter what the surface is and is designed to take the punishment of constant jumps and high G corners that the power system is capable of supplying.

One of the most exciting features of this truggy is that it comes set up for use with 3S or 4S batteries but if you want more speed then you can change out the 46T diff and 18T pinion gear and replace it with the 49T diff and 12T pinion gear included in the box that is designed to run with a 6S battery to get the Berserker really screaming. Don’t be fooled though, the Berserker is plenty fast enough on 3S for most drivers, exciting on 4S and…BERSERK on 6S.

The Berserker is simply the most exciting wheeled vehicle we have ever sold and we know you will feel the same when yours arrives and you get out there and break the rules.
