Redcat TC8 Marksman1:8 Scale Trail Crawler In Action [VIDEO]

From Redcat Racing:
The TC8-Marksman is our first ready-to-run 1:8 scale trail crawler. The Marksman uses the new Redcat TC8 1:8 scale platform, which includes XR247 axles, superior electronics and a scale body.

The Marksman is a highly capable RTR scale trail crawler that includes our trusted RCR-2CENR 2-channel 2.4GHz radio system, HobbyWing QuicRun WP Crawler 80A ESC, and Holmes Hobbies 13T Crawlmaster 550 brushed motor. This amazing electronics combination is reliable, super smooth, and has incredibly accurate low end throttle control for the most technical trails.

The Holmes Hobbies powerful 550 size 13T Crawlmaster brushed motor uses a 5-slot rotor, for industry leading smoothness, and a 1/8th inch diameter shaft. This motor, paired with the Marksman’s precision gearing, provides loads of power and more than enough wheel speed to make it over stubborn obstacles. The Hobbywing QuicRun WP 80A programmable electronic speed controller is all-weather, waterproof, and dustproof. This Hobbywing ESC has fifteen different programmable parameter items. This enables the driver to tweak the Marksman’s ESC performance characteristics for the ultimate driving experience on any trail. The programmable parameter items include the running mode, battery type, cutoff voltage, initial start force, maximum start force, maximum reverse force, initial brake force, drag brake percentage, drag brake rate, neutral range, start mode/punch, PWM frequency, BEC voltage and freewheeling control. The Hobbywing QuicRun WP 80A ESC even has nine levels of drag brake adjustment. We understand that this level of tuning capability may sound a bit overwhelming to some but don’t worry, we’re making it easy by including an official Hobbywing ESC programming box. The Hobbywing programming box is easy to use and allows Marksman owners to make all of their ESC performance tweaks while at the bench or on the trail. This allows drivers to focus on the pure enjoyment of driving a TC8-Marksman that is electronically tuned to its fullest potential. Take full control of the Marksman in minutes.
