Element RC Enduro Sendero HD Trail Truck

Element RC have introduced a new member to the line-up with the all-new Enduro Sendero HD Trail Truck. At the heart of the Enduro is our revolutionary Stealth X gearbox and while the exterior appears to have a conventional 3-gear transmission look, the inside is far from conventional. The Stealth X features the ability to adjust the rear drive ratio independently of the front drive across three levels, stock overdrives the front end 5.7% (installed in RTR), option 1 provides a one-to-one drive ratio front-to-rear (available separately), and option 2 overdrives the front end 11.83% (included with RTR). Feeding the power to the tires are 3-piece telescopic driveshafts with an extruded aluminium centre section, universal front drive axles and hardened steel ring and pinion gears. With the Enduro drivetrain, delivering useful power will not be an issue. The steering link assembly has been relocated from the conventional location to behind the axle (BTA). This feature greatly improves approach angle and front-end clearance, making rough terrain much easier to handle. The Enduro Trail Truck with Sendero body comes ready for adventure right out of the box, with performance-driven Reedy Power electronics. The all-new, ultra-smooth and powerful 16-turn, 5-slot brushed crawler motor and Reedy Power SC480X electronic speed controller with T-plug connector supply ample power to this tough rig. Controlling the beast on the trail is their new 3-channel XP130 2.4GHz radio and Reedy Power high-torque 1523MG metal-gear servo.
