Redcat Kaiju 1/8th scale monster truck

Redcat have introduced their new Kaiju 1/8th scale electric ready-to-run monster truck. It builds on a moulded tub chassis with a 3-differential drivetrain that improves power control without sacrificing the truck’s stunt and bashing abilities. Steel CVA drive shafts with captured joints, steel internal differential gears, 17mm aluminium hex hubs, rubber-sealed ball bearings, sealed drivetrain and extra durable plastics are some of the performance and durability components standard on the Kaiju. Damping is provided by four aluminium threaded body oil-filled coil-over shocks. The suspension is completely adjustable and tunable for most driving styles and conditions. The truck features a 6S LiPo-ready ESC and will accept single 4S to 6S or double 2S to 3S LiPo batteries. The truck uses the popular T-style battery connectors and the adjustable battery tray, with inner dimensions of 145.5mm long, 47.8mm wide and 56mm high, is what makes multiple battery configurations possible. Hobbywing’s powerful 150A brushless ESC and 4-pole 4268 2100Kv brushless motor provide power to the with the power system being both waterproof and dustproof, and it features low voltage cutoff, as well as overheating protection. The massive power handling capabilities of the Kaiju requires some additional stability control in the form of an adjustable wheelie bar. This allows the driver to decide how wild the truck’s wheelies are. The truck sits on four  aggressive monster truck tires that were designed for tearing through soil, as well as for high speed performance. The tire’s low profile sidewall design offers stability, traction, control and excellent power delivery. The retro styling of the polycarbonate body, coupled with its aggressive stance, gives the truck an amazing look and feel. The RTR package also includes a realistic looking and durable front bumper, with D-ring shackles and clear LED lights. Two red LEDs illuminate the rear of the vehicle.
