Losi Bind-N-Drive 1/18 Mini-Rock Crawler


New from Losi:The world’s most popular 1/18-scale rock crawler is available in a money-saving Bind-N-Drive version.

Losi’s Mini-Rock Crawler Bind-N-Drive utilizes design elements from real-world rock crawling competitors. A multi-link suspension and solid 4mm axles provide the ultimate combination of lightweight agility and strength. The full-time 4WD drivetrain powers all 4 wheels through a center-mounted 3-gear transmission with a spool and slipper, providing grip and torque at each and every wheel. The positioning of the transmission provides the Mini-Rock Crawler with outstanding balance for tackling the toughest climbs and maneuvers. Heavy-duty metal ring and pinion gears, solid axles and axle shafts combined with a full set of ball bearings provide the Mini-Rock Crawler with durability for extreme, precision climbs.

On top of the outstanding handling elements, Losi has loaded the Mini-Rock Crawler with the electronics you need for serious control and torque. A Losi receiver with Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM technology provides crystal-free, no-interference control. Power comes from a high-torque Losi electric motor, controlled by a crawler-tuned forward and reverse electronic speed control that keeps the Mini-Rock Crawler smooth and stable on the most uneven terrain. An extra amount of drag brake was added to hold the vehicle in the steepest of grades. The Crawler also features a high-torque rock-crawling-specific servo packed with power.

To fully achieve the scale look of the full-scale rock crawling machines, Losi designed a Tuber-style body, available in Gun Metal Gray or Electric Green for the BND version. To provide the traction that rock crawling demands, Losi adapted their unbeatable 1/10-scale Rock Claw 2.2 tires for the smaller size, resulting in Mini-Rock Claw tires. Mounted to beadlock-style wheels, the Mini Rock Crawler can clamber and climb nearly any obstacle with ease. With a rechargeable battery pack and wall charger included, the Mini-Rock Crawler is the only choice for 1/18-scale rock crawling performance.
