The Chevrolet K5 Blazer is one of the most popular 4x4 vehicles off all
time. This 1/10-scale kit gives you all the hardware necessary to build
an RC version that looks and drives like the real thing. At the heart of
its incredibly scale performance is the Vaterra® Ascender™ chassis.
This innovative platform features stamped-steel ladder frames with
adjustable wheelbase, a metal gear transmission and one of the most
capable off-road suspensions available.
Stamped-Steel Ladder Frames with Adjustable Wheelbase
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
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
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
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.
Crawler Style Bumpers and Rock Slider Side Bars
front and rear bumpers feature molded tow hooks. An opening on the
front bumper leaves plenty of room for a winch cable. If you want to try
different 1/10-scale bodies later on, the side bars and bumpers can be
moved to accommodate most of them.
Heavy Duty CV Front Shafts
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 1986 Chevrolet K-5 Blazer Body
clear, polycarbonate body is modeled after one of the most popular K-5
Blazers ever built. Scale touches include an injection-molded grille
with headlight details and authentic Chevrolet badging. A set of detail
stickers is also included.
Licensed Interco Super Swamper Tires
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.
