Spyder MT2 Features


Composite chassis plate with a layout allowing for a perfect weight balance, and optimal space for the electronics, battery and servo. The front kick-up angle in the chassis incorporates more clearance for racing and allow for better nose landings.

Shock towers and Shock absorbers

Durable composite front and rear shock towers, with multiple shock angle positions allowing to fine tune for varying conditions. Dual system 12mm big bore shocks with coated threaded bodies, a unique cap design, a superbly sealing O-ring and spacer package.

Front bumper system

The durable composite front bumper system will absorb the worst of head on crashes and will allow for save nose landings.

Front wishbones and Front and Rear Track Rods

The long front wishbones are made from a super strong composite material. The arms are angled to optimize the CG and pivot on 3mm captured pins on the inside and out. The arms have 2 mounting positions for shock angle and are prepared to use an optional anti-roll bar if needed. Spring steel front and rear track rods are mounted to durable composite captured ball joints. The track Rods have L/R threading for easy adjustments.

Castor blocks Steering Block

The steering blocks fit 5x10x4 mm bearings. The caster blocks are very compact and strong units made from a special composite material.

Steering system and Ackermann

The steering system has a reverse swinging pivot system that optimizes the efficiency through all different types of corners

Upright Settings

The rear hub uprights use a larger 5x14x4 outer bearing and 10x15x4 mm inner for ultimate lasting performance.

Wheel-axles and wheel hex.

The spring steel wheel-axles utilized 12mm hex adapter to follow current market standards. The front springs steel axle is fixed, while the rear wheel-hex is a clamping aluminum version.

Battery space mount and weight balance

The battery is mounted perfectly in the center line of the car. It’s an exact fit for saddle packs. In case of using a Shorty-pack, it can be moved to front or back to play with weight balance. Pieces of hard foam are supplied to do so and secure the battery in position. The carbon fiber battery-top-brace has a secure quick release system with handy alloy twist nuts.


The oil filled gear-differential is a super compact, effective and durable unit.


The car features a solid slipper combined with a steel gear, to have a simple and durable system. The slipper clutch is optional.

Motor plate and motor guard

The motor plate comes in anodized aluminum.

Rear Transmission case

The composite rear transmission case is light and durable. It allows the driver to adjust the differential height to each specific condition. It also securely holds the motor plate, differential as well as supports the rear wing mount and rear shock tower.

Rear driveshaft system, wheel-axles

The spring steel drive shafts are thin and light, yet durable. The spring steel wheel-axles are 5mm, light and durable, guided by the 2 different sizes of bearings, inner 10x14x4 mm and outer 5x13x4 mm. The driveshaft pin is fully captured to prevent any failure. These bearings are for sure to stand up the rigors of any track condition.

Rear suspension arms

The long and durable angled rear suspension arms are very tough units to withstand the rigors of the track and the hard landings. The rear arm offers 2 options for shock position and two mounting locations for the rear anti-roll bar if needed.

Rear Chassis skid plate

The composite rear skid plate connects to the chassis plate. This connection allows you to unclip the rear end in one piece, but helps reduce the total cost of maintenance. It is also made from extremely high strength composite material.

Rear bumper

The rear bumper section is a very durable unit, easy to disassemble, and fits well with the rear of the body, to absorb the worst of back-end crashes.

Body shell and rear wing

The light realistic looking MT style body, made in top quality clear polycarbonate, has a nice flowing line, steep front windscreen for down force.
