Latest from Vaterra:
Each year, thousands of off-road extremists come together in a remote corner of southern California’s desert, known to the faithful as Glamis. Here they revel in sun, sand and the glory of horsepower as they fly across vast, windswept dunes in everything from sand rails to ATVs. But it really doesn’t matter what you run. If you run at Glamis, you’re part of a tribe – a tribe that knows life is best lived under open sky, at full throttle, without regrets
Inspired by the monstrously overpowered 4-seat sand rails that run the dunes of Glamis, this 1/8-scale buggy comes ready to run and equipped to handle all kinds of terrain. At the center of its design is a viscous ring diff¬ that prevents wheel spin on loose surfaces when you’re cornering hard or hammering the throttle. It’s tough too. From the composite nylon chassis and oil-filled shocks to the waterproof electronics, the Glamis Fear™ buggy is built to let you go off-road in the real world. The Glamis Fear™ buggy has just about any detail you would find on a full-scale sand rail. Simulated running lights, beadlocks, roll cage, wing – it has it all. Rain or shine, mud or sand, the waterproof electronics and sealed bay lets you run in all kinds of conditions without worry. The Glamis Fear buggy comes equipped with a potent 4-pole 540 size 3300Kv brushless motor that delivers speeds of up to 55+ mph* when powered with the an optional Speedpack Platinum 11.1V 5200mAh 3S Li-Po Battery (DYNP4001EC). Maximum speed is 35+mph with included battery.
