Description Technical Specs Items Needed to Complete

Even in the world of extreme off-road enthusiasts, there are varying degrees of devotion. For most, it’s enough to take an SUV or pickup off the streets, lift it, drop in a big-bore engine and hit the trails. Then there are the builders – guys with vision and a blow torch. Not content with the status quo, they cut, weld and create thoroughly unique off-road machines that are as much art as they are feats of engineering. This incredibly scale recreation of a customized, 1972 K10 pickup is a tribute to these visionaries. It’s built on the proven Vaterra® Ascender® chassis and comes ready for scaler competition with a functional spare tire and wheel, waterproof electronics, aluminum panels and more.

This 4WD juggernaut is based on the Vaterra® Ascender™ chassis – an incredibly scale off-road platform that is engineered for extreme off-road environments. It comes completely assembled and equipped with waterproof electronics so you can drive it anywhere a full-scale off-road truck would go.

Stamped-Steel Ladder Frames with Adjustable Wheelbase
Steel, C-channel frames form the backbone of the Ascender chassis and give you four wheelbase lengths to choose from: 12.36 in (314mm), 11.9 in (302mm), 11.4 in (290mm) and 10.95 in (278mm). Markings on the frames make wheelbase adjustments easy.

Heavy Duty Suspension
The chassis has been designed with a 3-link panhard bar front suspension and a 4-link rear suspension. All suspension links are machined from aluminum to handle the most punishing conditions. Oil-filled, threaded shocks soak up the bumps and give you a variety of pre-load settings.

Metal Gear Transmission
The single-speed metal gear transmission is engineered to handle high-output power systems and brutal conditions. Those seeking a little more flexibility for different types of terrain can upgrade to the optional two-speed transmission, sold separately.

Floating Battery Tray
The battery tray floats over the front axle and is designed to accept 96mm shorty packs. Placing the weight of the battery over the front axle gives the front tires extra traction when crawling over rocks and tackling steep inclines.

Heavy Duty CV Front Shafts
As with the rest of the drivetrain components, these have been designed to handle the demands of high-output power systems and rugged terrain. They also allow up to 45 degrees of steering angle – more than many other trucks in this class.


Licensed Interco Super Swamper Tires
The realistic drivetrain and suspension are complemented by licensed replicas of Interco TSL SX Super Swamper® tires. Like the full-scale versions, their tread pattern and compound provide excellent grip at almost any angle.

Powerful Motor and Waterproof Electronics
The potent Dynamite® motor delivers all the torque you need to muscle over rock piles and power through mud and brush. A waterproof receiver, speed control and steering servo let you drive in the real world, where things get wet and the weather is often less than perfect.

Spektrum™ DX2E 2.4GHz Radio System
The included radio system gives you the unbeatable signal security and responsiveness of Spektrum DSMR® 2.4GHz technology. The DX2E transmitter is compatible with any Spektrum surface receiver so you can use it with other RC vehicles as well.
