Force RC Muckraker & Epidemic 1/8th BL trucks

Horizon Hobby have introduced the new Force RC 1/8th scale Muckraker truggy and Epidemic monster truck. Both build on a rugged 3mm aluminium chassis for strength and durability while large capacity 16mm oil-filled shock absorbers ensure exceptional bump and jump handling. The shaft-driven 4WD drivetrain provides great acceleration and performance in all environments which is further helped by sealed differentials and full ball-bearing support. Pillow ball front suspension flexibility and 10kg metal-gear steering servos ensure steering authority even in demanding track conditions and the factory-installed brushless motor and speed controller are capable of speed up to 65km/h. Both trucks were developed for the use with a single 4S or dual 2S LiPo battery packs and the Muckraker truggy comes with a high-downforce rear wing while the Epidemic monster truck sports a rear wheelie bar for improved control during stunts and bashing.
