Horizon Hobby have introduced the Losi Rock Rey 1/10th scale 4WD rock racer. Running on 2.2″ tyres the vehicle can bash over pretty much anything, anywhere, through mud and water. The foundation consists of a 3.5mm, hard-anodised aluminium chassis plate that is integrated with a realistic roll cage made of tough composite material. To this it adds a long-travel, independent front suspension and 4-link live rear axle that look and function exactly like their full-scale counterparts. The attached long-travel shocks soak up the energy from big bumps and jumps an they also feature threaded shock bodies with adjustment collars. External bump stops on the rear provide plush landings on the hardest surfaces.
The transmission with module 1 gears, as well as the front and centre diffs, are sealed against the elements and engineered to handle the abuse of a high-output brushless motor and punishing terrain. The vehicle comes equipped with a Dynamite Fuze 2800Kv brushless motor and a waterproof 130A ESC. The combination can handle 2S or 3S LiPo batteries and will allow to hurtle across the landscape at speeds of up to 65km/h. Included with the factory-assembled truck comes a receiver with built-in AVC Active Vehicle Control system that will work behind the scenes, making hundreds of throttle and steering adjustments per second, so more of the motor’s power is translated into speed and acceleration instead of just flying dirt. An AVC adjustment knob on the included DX2E transmitter lets the driver adjust how much traction control the system provides. The kit is rounded out by twelve LEDs on the light bar and bolt-on body panels with the vehicle being available in two colour variants, yellow and blue.
