FTX DR8 1/8th desert racer RTR buggy

Coming from FTX RC is their new DR8 1/8th scale desert racer ready-to-run buggy. Big, brutal and fast the DR8 is sure to capture the attention of electric powered brushless fans looking for a fast performer with the added bonus of some scale realism. Featuring the a 6S compatible Hobbywing speed control and 4274 2000kv brushless motor, the true test will be finding enough space to unleash the DR8 to its full potential of up to 100kph. At these speeds a solid base is required and the DR8 features heavy-duty materials and a proven design. 3mm heavy-duty aluminium front and rear braced main chassis, 5mm thick front and rear aluminium shock towers and reinforced moulded suspension components come as standard to help soak up any high speed tumbles. The 4WD drivetrain features sealed oil filled metal-geared differentials coupled with spiral toothed output gear and pinion and is finished off with a hardened steel spur gear for a near bulletproof transmission. Fully adjustable pivot ball suspension, front and rear anti-roll bars and big bore adjustable oil filled shock absorbers all contribute to provide race like handling and adjustability for different terrains. The DR8 is topped off with a classic, desert buggy inspired moulded tubular roll cage frame with printed lexan panels and spare wheel. A detailed interior driver cockpit, painted fire extinguishers are all rounded off with super bright front and rear LED light bars.
